- 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 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 The Millennium Earl, an ancient being 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 series is a very, very
underrated one. The animation and art a brilliant, the pacing is great and the overall series if fantastic, sure, it has like...ten filler episodes, but they are a mini arc that doesn't need watching.
Oh man I recently saw the first 65 episodes and I am hooked on this show. Its very awesome nicely paced show with great action, good storyline, comedy is nicely spread out, very good. Its one of my new favorite anime I download every week now along with Bleach, Naruto, and One Piece.
