PV 1 play More videos Edit Synopsis Losing a loved one is so painful that one may sometimes wish to be able to resurrect them—a weakness that the enigmatic Millennium Earl exploits.
Gray-man is based on Katsura Hoshino's manga series of the same title. The anime adapts the first chapters from the first 16 volumes, while adding anime exclusive content, mainly during the first half of the series.
FUNimation Entertainment licensed and released only the first 51 episodes of D. The explanation they provided for not acquiring the remaining episodes was that there were licensing issues with Dentsu. However, on June 30, , it was announced that Funimation acquired the rights the second half of the anime.

Allen also has an unassuming and borderline naive appearance, despite the troubled life his master, Cross Marian , forced him to live. Because of his Cursed Eye, which allows him to see the human souls bound to Akuma, Allen considers Akuma to be just as important to him as humans, swearing his left arm to saving Akuma and his right to saving humans.
Kanda believes him to be too idealistic for his own good and does not hesitate to tell him this, saying an Exorcist is simply a destroyer and that they will never be anyone's savior, though Allen claims that they can be both, pushing him to be, as he once put it, "a destroyer that saves". Over time, Allen's personality has seen a shift. Several times, his "dark side", which is a result of him perfecting his poker skills to pay back Cross's debts, has shown itself, frequently shocking and scaring those around him.
He is an expert at cheating in poker, which is shown for the first time when he brought Tyki Mikk disguised as a human and his two friends down to their underwear without any of them noticing what he was up to.
He has also begun using less formal speech around his close friends, something noted by and encouraged by Lenalee and Johnny Gill. The one person who can consistently make Allen break his polite mold is fellow Exorcist Yu Kanda. Their differing views but similar "darkness", as it is described by Noise Marie , lead to them butting heads and arguing almost constantly, sometimes over menial issues.
He also has a strong hatred for the Millennium Earl due to their history. As a child, Allen was abandoned by his family because of his "abnormal" left arm and they sold him to a circus. He was taken in by Mana Walker and began travelling with him. Mana later died, and the desperate Allen was tricked by the Millennium Earl into bringing him back. A furious Mana then cursed Allen, slashing at the left side of his face.
Allen's arm, which is actually a piece of Innocence, then activated without his consent and started chasing after Mana. After Mana told Allen he loved him and begged to be destroyed, Allen's arm exorcised Mana's Akuma, killing him a second time. After this ordeal, Allen's hair turned white from shock, and his left eye is cursed to perpetually see the suffering souls bound within Akuma, leading to his decision to live for their sake.
Originally, Allen was a rough and embittered child, speaking rudely and being very brash, probably due to his suffering at the hands of the greedy Ringmaster and the violent clown, Cosimov. In a stark contrast to the gentlemanly personality he grew up to have, he was more honest about his thoughts.
He also refrained from getting attached to others and considered friends unnecessary, as he hoped to one day leave the ruthless circus and lead his own life. However, he later came to love Mana dearly as they traveled together, considering him his father. Following Mana's death, after spending over a month in a lifeless, unresponsive state, he resurfaced bearing Mana's personality, becoming much more polite. Cross seems troubled by this development from the start, and has expressed that he prefers Allen's 'dark side' because it was closer to how he used to behave.
Allen seems to believe in God's existence once referring to his arm as "the crucifix of God that lies within me" though he has stated he does not care about "such a thing"; Allen had come to consider the Order and his comrades his second "true home" after Mana, but he is not simply fighting in the name of God, but rather for the vows he made to Mana, his friends and himself. After the truth of the Second Exorcist Project is revealed to him, he openly defies the Order by letting Kanda and Alma escape, due to his disdain of the Order's higher echelons and their questionable methods.
He is also greatly disgusted with the idea of joining with Apocryphos after learning what it has done to Cross. Allen is a big eater. This is a trait shared by all parasitic type accommodators but in Allen's case this is even more extreme.
Fellow parasitic-type Arystar Krory thinks that Allen uses this as an excuse to eat more in order to hide other issues. Allen has shown some shades of pride, refusing to run away from a Noah even when cautioned by Komui which nearly led to his Innocence's second destruction. Tyki Mikk called him arrogant for believing he could deprive him of his Noah without hurting him. Initially, Allen is very loyal to the Black Order; due them sharing the same goals; defeat the Millennium Earl and save the world from destruction.
However, upon discovering the Order's unspeakable experiments, his loyalty towards them becomes strained, as he realizes that the higher ups are no different from the Earl. During a fight against the Noah, Allen is imprisoned by the Order, who fear the reappearance of Nea. There, he is attacked by Apocryphos, a sentient Innocence that tries to assimilate Allen's Innocence.
Tyki Mikk and Road Kamelot rescue him from Apocryphos, making the Order believe he has betrayed them. However, after Tyki points out that most members of the Black Order will never see him as anything more than an Noah and after learning from Road that Nea spent his whole life protecting Mana; he realizes that not all members of the Noah Family are evil.

A rewritten, published version had a young Kanda walking along a path surrounded by dead people who had cared for him. Due to its violence, the image was replaced with one in which Kanda learns that Alma Karma had killed them all.
When the chapters were collected into a volume, Hoshino added a small chapter which included the corpses. At the time of drawing, Hoshino often finds herself rewriting sketches to the point the final images does not match her original ideas. When writing titles, Hoshino attempts to think of something bright in order to contrast the series' dark narrative. Fellow writer Takeshi Obata claimed that Hoshino's art continues to improve the more she writes but she replied to him that she is not aware of her own change.
Due to the intense development of the storyline, Hoshino believes she can no longer write simple eyes. Gray-man being her first series. She faced difficulties with the initial weekly serialization of the manga resulted in multiple changes due to how the storyboards changed across this period.
Following Hoshino's change to a three-mestral serialization, she uses digital from the storyboard stage. In bringing this style, she looked after manga author Tite Kubo , famous for writing Bleach , who uses a similar style. This allowed her to add more details to her illustrations and made the faces of her characters more unique.
Including Hoshino, there are three people working in the manga, but at times the number increases for the last spurt. Since moving to a trimestral magazine, the author has some leeway with time, so her assistants stay at their homes and work from there with what Hoshino send them. However, Hoshino expressed regrets of this idea of working as it often causes misunderstandings.
However, manga author Osamu Akimoto has praised some of her compositions such as the handling of Lenalee Lee before Noah's Ark, or the handling of Jasdevi's guns. When designing the characters, Hoshino first imagines their lives even though some parts might not be featured in the story. Their personalities are then written down along with their habits or eating preferences. She has admitted she does not have written details about a number of D.
Gray-man characters. This look was meant to give the idea of a gentleman related with the tragedy he causes as Hoshino linked him to a poisonous flower. The second uniforms were brought the artist problems due to the idea of giving each the clothing zippers. For the third uniforms, the color remained black but Hoshino decided to them red too as a reference to blood because she thought such grotesque looks would fit the themes of D. In other early colored chapters, Hoshino experimented with giving Allen gothic lolita style clothing and color style referencing American comics.
Other early colored illustrations were meant to give the idea of symbolism such Kanda's being seen as a puppet or Allen being covered by threads of Akuma and later the idea of his Innocence returning to his body, giving him a shocked appearance.
The author noted that the character of Lavi was popular with fans, placing third in a poll behind Allen and Kanda despite infrequent appearances in later story arcs, and she promised that Lavi would return. The story arc involving Alma Karma, featuring several characters, was difficult for the author; as a result, the next arc in which Allen leaves the Black Order contained fewer characters per chapter due to its different format.
The character of Apocryphos was introduced to hint at the Heart, a plot element briefly described in a past storyline which would later reappear. She does not want Allen's problems in recent story arcs to lead to portraying him as a troubled teenager, preferring to show him as a cheerful person with a balance of strength and sorrow. Gray-man 's dark narrative, Hoshino plans to write more lighthearted series in the future.
According to Hoshino, the series' main theme focuses on tragedy. Although this works, the people are revived as Akuma who consume the skin of their loved ones. This has led to her to state that an initial theme is that people should not be brought back to life. Nevertheless, Hoshino still tried to make it fun for the readers, stating that Allen will always have allies.
Another common theme of the series is the lack of black and white morality. Although Allen initially starts as a hero in the Black Order, their group are revealed to have created actions that might question the readers' thoughts in regards to whether or not the Order is good. Additionally, the Noah clan starts showing hidden depths despite their evil nature with the antagonistic Earl showing his care for the Noah Nea D.
Campbell while Tyki Mikk questions Allen about whether or not the Exorcist should return to his "home" due to the way he has been treated as a result of being the Nea's vessel. In the book Representing Multiculturalism in Comics and Graphic Novels Jacob Birken states another theme set in the series is identity. This is reflected in Allen and the exorcists familiarizing themselves with their own supernatural powers in order to become more humanize themselves.
On the other hand, Allen's revelation that he is the 14th Noah which makes him less human. Hoshino believes that the Millennium Earl, the series' main antagonist, would fit the manga's demographic. Tamplin discuss how D. Gray-man , alongside Spriggan and Ulysses 31 , focus on the "end of the world" with D. Gray-man and Spriggan taking references from the blibical flood. Hoshino's illustration involving Allen often have threads related covered with threads as she aims to show the fact that he is not only related to the fact that he is always associated with God as well as the fact that he is bound to exorcise Akumas.
Similarly, Kanda was first illustrated in color pages with multiple threads in a symbolic way to say he is a puppet as the person he has been searching for his entire life but has been unable to reach his objective. During production of the first anime adaptation, the author often visited the TMS Entertainment studio, where the voice actors requested advice about their characters. Early in production, Hoshino was shown an early version of the first opening theme: " Innocent Sorrow " by the Japanese rock band Abingdon Boys School.
When she saw the video, Hoshino began to cry in delight while the staff laughed to her. After the anime finished, the actors who became friends during production kept in touch. The anime's sequel was subtitled Hallow , referring to Halloween ; the holiday celebrates the "revival of the dead", and TMS Entertainment celebrated the "revival of the D.
