Title: Your throughts?
Post by: Reiyon on March 06, 2005, 04:42:27 AM
Ever since I started reading, I'm very suprised that I can't find too many fans ._.;

Anyway! ^_^
So far I really love the manga. It's the first good manga I've read in a good time... o.o I'm so glad Yanime is translating it ^__^

So. How about you all? :3

Yup, although we don't get many fans who come on the forums here.

But yah, I'm definitely an avid reader of the series...

Speaking of which, we should start discussion threads in these forums ^^

Yeah, maybe I should start making threads along with updates, heh...

Anyway, I think the current story arc is the best one so far. =p It's always been entertaining, but I think this latest story is more... Well thought out? I dunno, but, it's good. =p

Automatic hit. I won't be suprised if it makes top charts in Japan. Great story, reminds me somewhat of FMA though.

I thought so at first too, but volumes 3+ have taken it in a totally different direction, IMO.

o_o; then I'm not the only one? XD
Ever since I started reading it kept me reminding of FMA all the time.
Although I do notice that there are way too many differences to count, still there's something that keeps reminding me of FMA all the time...

And yeah... should start discussion threads here. xD

It seems to me like all the things introduced in chapters 1-3 are so are pretty similar to FMA, but after that nothing really is... Pretty much just his arm and the fact that a parent of his died in a tragic way, heh.

The art a little bit as well, plus the style of comedy. But it has developed it's own complete taste from FMA.

I think this manga is a lot like FMA.  Not as in the story is the same, but the kind of story.  It's unique and different, refreshing if you will.  Aswell as the art and comedy in it is a lot like FMA.  The story though seems a lot more like Hunter X Hunter then FMA.

Oh gawd, it's my favorite manga. I'm guessing it's pretty underground considering a lot of the hardcore anime geeks I know knew nothing of it. Personally, I don't know a lot about FMA so I can't say if it is alike or not...but FMA's not my bag. It's too...I dunno. I don't like a big fanbase..

And the art is real original...I've never seen anything much like it. I love the kind of creepy yet adorable factor. Oh man...it's just so great. ;_; <3

i also thought at first it gives off the feeling of FMA but it definitely has its own feeling as well....i guess as well as someone said the arm but i don't think it was so much that as it was him helping others using his arm...

idk...i started reading it when YANIME came out with it..i love it...

and someone is also right..the comedy reminds me a little of FMA too..meh...

Out of the mangas I read, they're normally either romance or action. This is definitely one of my favourite action manga's, maybe second to Naruto, those two (DGM/Naruto) are the only mangas I can pick up after a few weeks and instantly get back into the story.

It's one of my favourite mangas that I read. The plot is getting somekind of weird though but it's awesome.

I'm a huge fan of this series since I started reading it. It's so cool and absolutely hilarious. I love the bad guys as well, Rhode and Ticky to be exact. It's a change to many of the bad guys you usually would have in these types of mangas y'know?

This manga is great. With Bleach, One Piece and Naruto it's on of my favorites.

This manga is great. It is my current favorite out of the four Jump series that I read. The gothic style art and the European/French feel to the art and landscape make the enviroment very different then that of Naruto, One Piece, and Bleach. The villians are amazing. Rhode has became one of my favorite villians of all time in such a short amount of time. I cannot wait to see how the story develops. I also want to see how skillful a cheater Allen is.

i love it. ^_^ i love the humor, action, characters, plot, art,pretty much everything. It's a like..a newfound love..lol and i love that its set in the late 19th century and the european background is wonderful..all those religous/real-life references are cool too~
My fav characters so far are Allen and Rabi!! (okay...you too Komui..^o^;;)
yep..the fandom will catch up soon enough cuz its a pretty cool manga. ^_^

Hi, I am new here :D
I am absolutely addicted to D.Gray-man now...

It does remind me of Fullmetal Alchemist when I first started reading. It's not the art, it's not the characters, it's... just the feeling of the story and the way the story and scenes were handled. Really hard to describe >.>

I started to read the Fullmetal Alchemist scanlation before the anime was released, and there were only a few fans in the beginning... well after a few ep. of anime, the forum I frequented was suddenly swarmed by fans... >.>
Now that I think about it, maybe thats another reason why D.Gray-man kinda reminded me of FMA. Great manga with a unique feeling, but so few fans...

I think it's kinda like FMA
They both have good plots, many humors and great actions
Before I knew this one, Naruto is the most favorite
But when I know it, Naruto's fell apart!

I think it'll be very famous in the future!

i'm really like this manga as well, it has extremely cool and unique art, and it can really balance the humor with the serious atmosphere that it has.

i'm pretty sure that as time goes by, the number of fans of this manga will increase... it's still in its early stages, i'm sure that once it reaches around 80+ chapters, this awesome manga will have a fairly larger fanbase  ;D

Well... when someone on the LJ community posts scans of the cover of Volume 4 and we get 8 or 9 replies that say nothing but "OMG RABIIIIIIIIII," I think it's safe to say that the fandom is growing at a rather alarming rate.  ^^

This manga is really cool.  Rhode and Allen are the coolest characters.
