Thought I would make a post about this anime as I haven't really seen it mentioned here yet.

I was just wondering if anyone has watched it, and what their impression of it was. I'm not sure if its just not mentioned as no episodes have been dubbed yet so no one has heard of it, or because people here just didn't like it.

Either way if you haven't seen it its something I'd recommend watching.Wink

Good question, guess I should of put that in my first post. Although what I'm going to say is just going to be a copy paste from wikipedia.


The story of D.Gray-man takes place on a fictional Earth at the end of the 19th century. The plot mostly centers around Allen Walker, a young British boy who is a member of The Black Order; a secretive organization whose members are known as Exorcists. The Order's primary mission is to stop a being referred to as The Millennium Earl, an ancient demonic sorcerer who intends to 'cleanse' the world by destroying all life on it.

Exorcists are specially chosen humans who are gifted with the ability to control and use Innocence, a divine substance created in ages past to combat the Earl. According to the Order's history, at the end of The Great Flood, 109 fragments of Innocence were scattered around the world. Once an Innocence fragment is matched to its compatible user, it can become a weapon or tool for the user to wield in the battle against the Earl.

The Millennium Earl is aided in his plans by The Noah Clan, humans who are direct descendants of Noah himself. Each member of this clan is gifted with great power and each represent a different 'aspect' of Noah. They are identified by their gray skin and line of cross-shaped markings on their foreheads. As the story progresses, the members of the clan are revealed: Road Kamelot (The Dreams of Noah), Tyki Mikk (The Pleasures of Noah), Jasdero and Debitto - Jasdebi (The Bonds of Noah), Skin Boric (The Wrath of Noah), and Lulubell (The Lust of Noah).

The Earl also utilizes an army of demonic creatures called Akuma to do his bidding. Akuma are created by taking advantage of someone's grief over the death of a loved one. The Earl tricks individuals into bringing their loved one back to life through a skeletal 'doll,' only to have that doll kill them and turn them into an Akuma with the soul of the dead loved one trapped inside. Akuma are able to evolve and with each new level grow more intelligent, powerful, and sadistic. Since Akuma can impersonate humans to blend in, Exorcists are routinely assigned to track down and eliminate them. Allen is the only exorcist able to actually see past an akuma's disguise, this because of a curse placed on him.

Sounds pretty interesting. My only question is, (and it's probably a spoiler) why are the descendants of Noah bad?

Well it hasn't really been revealed why they are bad in the anime so far, and I don't read manga so I couldn't say for sure. Both however are ungoing so no one may really know as of yet. But keep in mind this is a fictionalized earth, so they could change history, or biblical events in this case making noah an evil guy trying to kill all life or whatever they want.

As far as I can tell the Noah consider themselfs "Superior Humans" and wish to wipe out all of the inferior humans and start a new world, but it might be a bit more complex than that for each individual like I said I can't say for sure at this point.

It sounds pretty good, I might start looking into that one. Right now I'm starting to watch Elfen Lied, it's pretty good. And I'm also cathing up on the Death Note series.

It is because he is/was the apprentice of Cross, the person the earl currently considers his greatest threat.

It could be, but as far as we know the earl doesn't know about that. They are just targeting people with the greatest chance of having the heart, and those who've been close to Cross have a higher chance than some random Exorcist, and being his apprentice Allen is among the top of the list. Cross of course being the #1 target.
