D. Gray-man is a Japanese anime series that aired from 2006 to 2008, produced by TMS Entertainment and directed by Osamu Nabeshima. The story is based on the manga series written and illustrated by Katsura Hoshino. The anime adaptation, licensed by FUNimation, follows the manga's storyline with a mix of action, adventure, drama, and supernatural elements.

The story takes place in a fictional 19th-century Europe, where the world is plagued by an epidemic called Akuma. Akuma are creatures created by the Millennium Earl, a mysterious figure who wants to control the world. Akuma are created by embedding corrupted souls into corpses, and they have the ability to transform into different forms, making them a dangerous threat to humanity.

The story's protagonist is Allen Walker, a teenage boy who possesses the power to see the souls of the Akuma. Allen is a member of the Black Order, an organization dedicated to destroying the Akuma and the Millennium Earl. The Black Order has a group of Exorcists, people with the ability to destroy Akuma, who work alongside Allen to fight the evil forces that threaten the world.

As the series progresses, Allen and his comrades face off against different Akuma and their creators, uncovering dark secrets about their own organization and the Millennium Earl. Along the way, they also encounter new Exorcists with unique abilities and learn about the tragic pasts that have led them to join the Black Order.

The first season of the series introduces the main characters and their backgrounds while showcasing the human drama and the supernatural phenomenon plaguing the world. It explores Allen's origin and his connection to the Millennium Earl, and the difficulties he faces as he battles with the demons of his past while trying to save the world.

The second season, "D. Gray-man Hallow," aired a decade after the first season, and moves the story forward. The characters are more mature, the stakes are higher, and the threats are more dangerous. Allen and his comrades are still fighting the Akuma, but this time the enemy has grown stronger, and the Black Order's secrets are starting to unravel.

The series' animation is excellent, with a mix of 2D and 3D animation techniques that bring the characters and the action scenes to life. The character designs are unique, and the settings are gorgeous, adding a layer of realism to the fictional world. The series' soundtrack is composed of orchestral pieces that complement the mood of the story, whether it is an action scene or a moment of reflection.

The voice acting for the series is also well done. The Japanese voice actors deliver their lines with emotion, and the English voice actors for the FUNimation dub give excellent performances that match up with the characters' personalities and quirks. FUNimation also translates the opening and ending themes into English, which is a nice touch that helps viewers connect with the songs.

Overall, D. Gray-man is a fantastic anime series that blends action, adventure, drama, and supernatural elements into an engaging story. The characters are well-developed, the world-building is meticulous, and the animation is top-notch. The anime adaptation follows the manga closely, making it a must-watch for fans of the series.

D. Gray-Man is a series that is currently running and has 2 seasons (65 episodes). The series first aired on October 3, 2006.
