    *goes back to stare at the amazing details of chapter 116... especially that last page, that's just awe-inspiring.*

    Oh damn, I swore I wouldn't go on about this...
    The D.Gray-man art may have gotten really good recently, but the originality just went down the tubes. "I HAS A GUTS SORD" from nowhere, just after a previous powerup nontheless, is NOT a good twist!

    Uryuu freaky, pale and geeky,
    how do your powers grow?

    Well, yeah, but let's just see how that plays out (and damn it, turning your arm into a sword IS original). Aside from that, the originality is actually still quite high when you ignore the, um, sword.

    ...and anyway, this allows for more pretty images of fighting.

    Aria does have lovely art. Can't be denied.

    Turning your arm into a sword isn't original to start with, since people have had shapeshifting limbs of various types in manga for ages. Pulling a giant sword out of your ass, err, wrist, when your abilities have never been sword based, you have no knowledge of swordsmanship, and there is no reason that it would have to be a sword, is just silly.

    Uryuu freaky, pale and geeky,

    Next time you have a thought, and feel the urge to say something, just....keep it inside. In a deep, dark, shameful part of your soul that never sees the light of day, and festers and rots in dolorous decay.

    Please kill yourself.

    Even ignoring your, uh, "example", that wouldn't really be original anyway. It would just be a minor variant on the tracing skill that Shiro and Archer from F/SN use.

    Oh Jakko, you so eloquent.

    I've always thought the art in D.Gray-man was the best thing about it, except Rhode (<3 Rhode). I stopped reading back when The mangaka broke her hand or something. I tried to pick it up once or twice after that but just lost interest, though I'd probably have more patience with it if the mangaka didn't try every cover page to make Allen look like a girl. I've seen a few pages of the more recent chapters and it seems as though the mangaka's really lost the plot with all these powerups (can't tiki like... choose what is allowed to exist now or something?). It's beginning to look more and more like the nasuverse.

    What's doubly creepy is that you posted between the time I hit submit and the time the page loaded, since your post was there immediately after mine.

    Well, at least Kanda looks like a man now. I guess it was payback to Allen for fighting with him all the time (thankfully, not so much anymore). Read the recent chapters, though - things actually make more sense, especially when you consider that previously, there were no power-ups at all (in fact, we had two people lose all abilities, and some non-Innocence-related ones, for volumes without seeing a single power-up). It's making up for that now. :3

    ...Can't say anything about Tiki except that his power seems to be a substitute for his sanity.
