Some mangaka can make it 'dark' enough so that it satisfies fans like you, other can't. Hoshino-sensei can't do it to its total potential but she's doing it quite well. Better than CLAMP, I would dare to say.
I am, partly. But it wasn't me who watched this, it was my friend. It isn't important anyway, 666 sounds cooler than 616 xD

Yeah, CLAMP is doing quite bad job - although "Code of Geass" which is joined project with Clamp is great at being dark (it's like Death Note with some mecha in it - but it isn't like Gundam concentrated on fights between robots - it's more about tactics and politics, fights are quite rare).
As far as I remember, saying something three times in bible meant that it was said infinitive many times - hence three sixes, because six is a number of impurity and imperfection, saying it three times means "ultimate impurity". While 7 is a number of perfection, 3 is a number of mystery e.t.c...

Hm...I don't know that series...and if it's about as dark as Detah Note, then it's good x) It's good if there aren't too many fights...makes a series pretty boring after a while.
I'm not christened and I don't have R.E, neither did I have had confirmation (education) so I actually don't have an idea of this...

It's good, watch it when you have time (unfortunately, there is only anime). King of Thorns is quite interesting, but it's only have 20 chapters. Spiral is a little to 'cute', but it's getting really darker. Hellsing is.. more of massacre than dark - but it's cool. I can't remember any other titles which weren't mentioned to have darkness in it..
My own knowledge goes from school - we have been talking about bible in literature classes.

"Code of Geass", okay. I have all volumes of King of Thorns^^, I don't have an idea of Spiral... and Hellsing is...well, I asked my friend to copy it for me (the anime). It's bloodier but pretty dark^^
These themes are used in R.E, but I chose ethic instead of R.E, so....

Gankutsuou anime was good (it was based on "Count of Monte Cristo" ). Chrno Crusade was weak...Tokko is stupid (another massacre). Tenjou Tenge was supposed to be dark, but it's hard to understand what is happening in this manga and what this manga is about.
In my school, you had R.E or nothing

Hey, Chrno Crusade is cool! Not very dark (was it suppose to be dark?) but the plot was very cool. I've seem a few Tenjou Tenge pictures...a lot big-bosomed women.....
That's mean...*pouts*, well at least the ethic-teacher is one of my (few) favourite one

I am so right
There is lot's of mangas which doesn't favour black-and-white stories, I was giving examples of those.
I sometimes doubt whatever DGM isn't for kids of age 12 (and I don't think such kid would feel disturbed with the word fuck - considering that at the age 12 you can already curse like a drunk sailor).
We are on topic - most of time.

...Writing "fuck you" on a wall isn't meant to be appropriate for a child of that age. I think a big giveaway is the ages, though; twelve-year-olds want Naruto, not a manga where more than half the cast is over twenty-five (with the exceptions of Rabi, Allen, Rinari, Kanda, and we presume Road...).
You're not on D.Gray-Man topic.
On a completely unrelated note, I was reading Claymore and someone was influenced by the other manga. Think:
*Pale hair/silver eyes
*Evil organization that is supposed to fight for good
*Children being kidnapped and forced into fighting by said organization
*I SWEAR I saw Allen's and Rinari's weapons at some point (his arm, and whatever happened to Rinari's legs when she transformed her boots into that weird blade thing)
*Seeing the true nature of evil spirits who hide as people
*Monsters eating people's guts (...)
*The enemies are still super-powered humans, but still humans
*Things involving transformation of self beyond acceptable limits and the resulting death
...I'm sure there's more. Ahahaha, Claymore is such a good manga too.
