Hey guys, i'm kind of a newbie around here. Usually a lurker, not a poster.
I wanted to start reading a new manga and had a lot of people recommending D. Gray Man.
I DL'ed a couple of chapters and, well, how can I say this... It seemed a bit childish. (No offense, really)
It's not a bad manga. The art is well drawn and all, but the story kind of comes too easily. In 3 chapters or so, I already know so much of Exorcists and Akumas.
Maybe the problem is me, just finished reading Basilisk and the latests Hellsing releases, and always been an Evangelion fan. I don't know.
So, does it get deeper in terms of plot and character development?
And also, does the Anime differs a lot from the Manga?
The anime sucks.
You can't read just three chapters of a manga and expect to find depth in the series. Yes, you do find out a lot, and that's probably a good thing since there's a lot later that you don't know. Judging by the discussion threads here and on other sites, there are so many possibilities for the manga, and every new chapter is completely unpredictable.
So it does get better. Don't give up after reading so little... and you have to think about things, too. ^_^ With this manga, anyway.
That's exactly what a expect of a good manga/anime.

Yay. =) Well, when I say "think", I mean you don't have to think... but then D.Gray-Man just doesn't seem as great. If you wonder about what will happen and what Hoshino-sensei is planning, and think of the possibilities, then it's just awesome.
(I made someone go back and read! Yay!)
Ah, cheer for DE-sama xD
But if Necro-Eiji-san is even posting (even if s/he isn't a poster) it shows that s/he's pretty interested or at least genuine curious about DGM. Hm...DGM deserves more fans, seriously. NOT the anime.
Thankfully, I haven't met too many people who love the anime and haven't even bothered to read the manga (it isn't Ouran! *sigh of relief*). As long as they read the manga and love it and use it for discussion and debate, that's all I can ask for as a superfangirl.
hehe, I can't help but agree with you there D_E.
Yay. =D Oh, you all know I have to kill every single thread here. I'm such a fangirl.
...You know, on the topic of first impressions, I originally thought everyone in the Order was an Exorcist. xD Stupid Digi.
Well, I assumed they all had the title of exorcist, but I figured that they had feild ops and research.
Yeah, I didn't know that... I thought they all fought akuma. xD I don't remember when I figured out that people like Komui had no special powers at all... hearing that Rinari was an Exorcist wasn't a surprise, I was like "uh, of course?". >_>
