ANIME & MANGA - Review

D.Gray-man 2:1

In this collection of episodes, which spans from 27 to 39, our lead character Allen Walker, finds himself taking a backseat as the series takes a chance to explore the wider cast in a little more depth. Whilst for many shows, removing the principle character usually screams 'filler', D.Gray-man handles these narrative excursions with skill, making them an absorbing part of the story's tapestry, rather than a break from the ongoing action.

The main action here revolves around the Clan of Noah, summoned by the Millennium Earl to retrieve the Heart of Innocence, and be all-round incorrigible rogues. While they threaten all that is good on Earth, Allen and Lenalee search for General Cross, Allen's teacher.

With plenty of supernatural action, humour, and a gothic style that's never overly heavy, D.Gray-man picks up somewhat from the previous season, and provides plenty of development for fans.

A supernaturally good adventure series.
SCORE: 4/5
