Set in the 19th century, it tells the story of a young Allen Walker, who joins an organization of exorcists named the Black Order. They use an ancient substance, Innocence, to combat a man known as the Millennium Earl and his demonic army of Akuma who intend to destroy humanity.
This dark, gritty Manga is action packed, but never short on great character growth and touching moments between the cast. However, don’t believe it’s going to be anything sweet and cuddly, there are serious overtones and a fundamental message about what it is to be accepted and the pursuit of what’s right in the face of selfish ambition.
With so much to enjoy, an art-style that is both sleek and beautiful at the same time, D.Gray-man delivers a host of enjoyable content. Though it’s probably not something I would suggest people start on but for those seeking something that bites a little deeper in the raw existence of what it means to be human.
Thought provoking and exciting, it’s not to be missed.
A thoroughly gripping series that is far from being D.Gray in it’s delivery.
I will be back soon with another book to review soon!
