- 2 Seasons
Meet Allen Walker (Japanese: Sanae Kobayashi/English: Todd Haberkorn)--a 15-year-old boy with a gentle demeanor and unusual snow-white hair with a strange scar over his eye. Allen is an Exorcist--a being who can destroy 'Akuma', demonic creatures that can take the form of humans and walk among them unnoticed. Unique even for Exorcists, however, is Allen's ability to see through an Akuma's deception with his scarred eye. The common enemy to all Exorcists, the one who stands atop the army of Akuma, is the Millenium Earl (Japanese: Junpei Takiguchi/English: Jason Liebrecht). A mysterious being, he directs the Akuma that exist and creates more Akuma to replace those that are destroyed--all in a great effort to destroy humanity. The only way to fight these creatures is through weapons created with a rare material called 'Innocence'. For Allen, who was born with a rare parasitic Innocence that deformed his left arm, his arm is his weapon and can transform into a monstrous clawed appendage. For other Exorcists, such weapons can be as varied as a clock, a pair of boots, or a common sword. D. Gray Man is filled with fast-paced action and intense battle scenes mixed with plenty of the supernatural and a slightly gothic artistic direction. While at times light-hearted, the show is overall a more serious shonen with a slightly grim tone and mature elements. Expect a healthy volume of drama, a constantly growing cast of enemies and allies, and a slowly unraveling overall plot. D. Gray man is a shonen genre anime--adopted frm the manga of the same name by Katsura Hoshino. The TV series was produced by TMS Entertainment, Aniplex, Dentsu, and TV Tokyo; directed by Osamu Nabeshima; and adopted to English by Funimation Entertainment in the USA. The music for the show was composed by Kaoru Wada. The completed series is two seasons and 103 episodes long.
