D. Gray Man has all the essential parts of an anime of it’s genre: action, comedy,drama, and plot. They blend together in sometimes well-mixed fashion and other times more "thrown-in-at-last-minute" kind of feel. It certainly is unique and has a uniqueness I’ve not found in many anime. In other words, it doesn’t "remind me of bleach, naruto,..." etcetera. It’s gothic style is not so overdone to draw away from the lightness of the character and be more like Claymore or Devil May Cry, but it’s not so light-hearted to have absolutely no plot at all. It has it’s own identity.
The action in it is farely constant, but not smothering. I would say there is more suspense of a fight than actual fighting. The way the main characters struggle with level 2 monsters at the beginning and then can whip’em away easily towards the middle of the series is a little abrupt for me, like they they got tired of them and just wanted to get rid of them. It’s supposed to show the transformation of the characters’ powers I guess. This may seem sudden to me because I’m more used to the slow evolution of a character in a book rather than an amazing picture.
The comedy is well placed and actually funny. The constant insults flying around and mishaps are what makes the foundation of anime comedy. It keeps the watcher interested when things get a little too heavy with the drama or plot.
Drama was great, couldn’t say anything about it. Very suspenseful; made me hold my breath and gasp a few times. The plot was entertaining and made sense. The characters were searching for their own identities and slowly found them through each other and their enemies. Made total sense, although predictible story line.
I really enjoyed this series and would recommend it to anyone. It was a real pleasure to come home from a grueling day to something of this caliber. Enjoy!
