    D. Gray-man

    Recently, I've been trying new manga series. Last month I started reading Death Note (absolutely love it), last week I started Gintama (love it), and today I began reading D. Gray-man (love it).

    It's about a 15 year-old boy named Allen Walker who was born with a devil-killing weapon in his arm. Because of this he chose to become an exorcist who travels around pursuing Akuma (devils) and Earl (the guy in charge of the Akuma).

    So I've only read 3 chapters of this manga so far, but I can already tell that I'm getting hooked. Anyone else read it?

    Hmm..a pair of dark-haired babies and their mother, followed by a dark- haired boy running in a field of wheat to a large mansion and stretching his hand towards someone? I'm assuming the babies are Mana and Neah, and the boy is Mana stretching hand towards Neah. Could Mana and Neah be twins, and we're finally gonna get some back story on them? If so, I'm excited.

    Sadly, I didn't care so much bout the other 30 or so pages in this chapter :pek

    Very information heavy chapter. I hate the fact however, that we're randomly jumping between scenes every chapter it makes it hard to follow.

    I think there is something about this manga that makes it very hard to read the dialogue. I don't have this problem with any other manga I currently follow. I wonder the author has an unusual writing style, and it simply is difficult to translate.

    This chapter was pretty good, though.

    I miss the old D-Grayman too. The plot has gotten too complicated, the artstyle horrible and the story completely out of loop. I don't even know whats going on anymore (exaggeration).

    It's really a damn shame how terrible DGM turned out.

    It was incredible until the Noah invaded the Black Order.

    It went down the drain when the level 4, Levelier, the third excorcists, Alma Karma, Apocryphos etc. were introduced.

    CHAPTER 214! FINALLY~

    Chapter 214 is out! :high

    Frankly, I thought it was a pretty decent chapter. The pace has slowed down quite a bit, but I'd rather it was like that than, you know, rushed. What a hodgepodge that would be, considering how many plot/mystery threads are still hanging up in the air. I'll refrain from squeeing about Kanda's lethal 19-year old beauty. Allen, on the other hand. He gets prettier every time. :love

    I thought it left off at a pretty intense place, too. Arrrghh. JUST HOW IS KANDA GOING TO HANDLE THIS.

    P.S. Um, can someone tell me how to spoiler tag? Because I want to squee about the 14th and how absurdly creepy he was this chapter. He's worse than Allen when it comes to The Smile. D:

    then close it off

    Only enjoyed the ending, fed up with these constant flashbacks that no-one gives a fuck about and Johnny in every bloody chapter.

    After reading your posts (accidentally) I knew what would happen anyway, but yeah, I?m happy we?re moving forward!

    @Thdyingbreed: Nah, don?t think that would happen. Ultimately, Allen is going to take over again or they?re going to join up or something (damn, I forgot so much about D.Gray-man...should re-read it sometime too...)

    Neah takes over, huh.

    D-Grayman could do better if it was weekly and the author wasn't an lazy ass.

    Bet it takes half a year before the plot moves alonhg.

    As bad as Bleach has become, I think it had the biggest drop from being one of the "top 3"; I cant see anything dropping in quality like D gray man has, it never had the high of the other shonens, but it was pretty dam good and now, art style aside, where is this story going

    Does the author have cancer or some terminal disease? No. For me that just seems to be a great excuse to use for why you haven't completed work.

    Some of these authors seem to ALWAYS be "sick". If this were truly the case they would have some terminal illness and wouldn't be able to concentrate on any project. It just seems really convenient that this is the excuse always branded about (not like it isn't sometimes true).

    I'm sure they'd rather say "Oh, I was sick... again" than "I got lazy and didn't have the work completed in time for the publisher". Now how many have admitted to that?

    She has had an ongoing wrist problem in her drawing hand... True if she was ambidexterous this wouldn't be a problem at all and it would be laziness.

    Maybe she should've also had 1 or 2 backup artists who could've done the job as well as she did if a problem did occur. Thats talking in terms of theoretical illness however and she probably didn't think anything was going to happen to her.

    She is in the process of completing the work so its not an excuse for not doing it, its a reason for the drop in quality and the long hiatuses the series seems to be having.

    If it annoys you enough to dedicate a post flaming the author for feigning ill health and call her lazy well there is always the option of dropping the series. (Basically you can fuck off.)

    she has had many problems especially with her hand you try and write something with your hand injured. plus you do get this free it is not like you pay and being angry. in reality she should go on a long hiatus and fully heal.

    I agree you cant criticize too much if she had something like a wrist problem in terms of art style, but the story line of the manga is what has degraded the most, ever since the expansion of the black order to all these branches, third and fourth exorcists, now we have this living innocence thing hunting allen, etc.

    The manga was its strongest early on when it was simply a group of exorcist plus ravi going against the noah and the Earl
