D. Gray Man: The Manga, The Anime, The Cosplayers, The Fandom

I must say D. Gray Man is becoming a most popular hit!! I'm beginning to see DGM cosplayers everywhere!! What's your opinion on Katsura Hoshino's rising hit?

The Manga: It's on HIATUS!!! Why? cause Katsura is being sued by the Death Note artist(whos name eludes me at the moment) for making a character so similar to his own. The whole monster arm thing isn't working out for Hoshino's beloved Antagonist Allen Walker.

Other than that little splice of reality, the manga is ongoing and has reached 170 some chapters... or at least it had when i checked... it's probably surpassed that now and I'm way to lazy to check. The artwork is something to admire. The earlier chapters not so much, as there are a few issues with the characters... but that's my opinion. The later chapters have definitely improved in artwork. The storyline itself is EPIC.

The Anime: It's now being dubbed in Engrish! This is a major thing fer those of us in the U.S. But fer those of us who prefer the subbed japanese eps KUDOS to you!! The U.S. dubbs have literally destroyed the voices that made Hoshino's D. Gray Man such a hit. I swear... somebody need to get over there and show them how bad they are doing cause Kanda should not sound like some 40 YEAR OLD CHAINSMOKER!! Other than that, the episodes only go up to 100 some and dont fully explain what the manga does... A disappointment in my book...

The Cosplayers: These DGM cosplayers are going full out!! The last D. Gray Man photoshoot I attended had tons of cosplayers! Enough to rival that of the Fullmetal series! I'm really happy it's becoming such a big hit X3

I myself cosplay Komui Lee, the head of the science department. Its so much fun cosplaying him. Cause he's crazy. And I'm crazy. Fits don't you think?

The Fandom: What do you think of this Rising Star in the Otaku world? All comments, pictures, ANYTHING on D. Gray Man is appreciated and will be responded to! (unless its inappropriate... I'm sure the forum leaders would not appreciate that...)

Now I shall excuse myself and await your replies!! JA MATA!!!

I think Jim means that if he could actually upvote the original post titled, 'D. Gray Man: The Manga, The Anime, The Cosplayers, The Fandom' he would. However, on this website it is only possible to upvote the responses.

@maria @sinisterspades aye, that is what I mean :) I really need to update the FAQ

Maybe you could let me know which things you find confusing? The site is very new and we're still working out the kinks ;)

You COULD vote the OP's post up if you built it to work that way.
