    D.Gray-man D.Grayman lossing its touch?

    Hi im starting this thread as an open discussion on your personal views on the manga "D.Grayman" [flaming is welcome]. When i first read D.Grayman i thought, "this is not my thing" then i gave it another go, read a few more chapters, and before i knew it *bang* i was hooked. The art is great, thats a given, but one of the things that hooked me the most was that the story takes the characters places others dont; Allen practically died when he vs'ed Ticki Mick and i had no clue how the artist was gonna tangible pull him out of it.

    However! [and heres where i get to the point of this thread] One of my biggest criticisms is that the characters themselves seem a bit 2-dimensional; they really dont seem like they have much too them and sometimes the dialogue between characters seems a lil...crap?. Also! Lately the art has been a lil ..."low quality"...and i dont mean the scans i mean the way the characters are being drawn. I think its because Hoshino has trouble drawing Marian [she said so herself a while back] and animating him well. So in closing i think this "5 week sicky" is just a chance for her to get back on the right footing, so good for her. I really hope D.Grayman doesnt end up crashing and burning, ive got high hopes for its "recouperation".

    P.S This is the only place i could think of putting this thread so if any admin out there thinks it should be in a special D.Grayman section feel free to put it there. Most importantly i want to hear what other fans/critics think of this [especially you blud]

    this belongs in the D.Gray man section...

    anywho, I disagree...

    2D? no, just in the latest few chapters a new angle of road and tyki was shown; ie. tyki's last words - 'sorry road' and then road seeking revenge.

    thats pretty three dimensional as far a villans go.

    I have no Idea what your talking about when you say the art is getting bad... yes, Iv noticed that she has changed her style a little bit; but I haven't noticed any drop in the quality of it. as for animating marian, that isn't her job, she just draws the manga, anime is a completely different group of people as far as I know.

    I spose its all opinion based..

    Hey thanks for that ive made another copy of the thread over at the D.Grayman section [im new with this site =P].

    P.S When i said animating Marian, i meant drawing him in different shots and angles.

    Hey, redzero00, next time this happens to you, just wait for a moderator to move your thread to the right place, instead of starting the thread twice.

    See ya!

    PS: Somebody close this thread.

    at this point of the manga, aside from making it look really LQ, i really feel that some of the characters become useless *ahem*linalee*ahem*. it became this good vs evil thing that makes most of the characters' effort useless. i like this manga-really, i do- but it seems it lost the usual "wow" from the beginning of the manga/anime. so... i have nothing left to say that would make it less of a criticism to the manga.

    im sure hoshino will figure something out with drawing cross. i mean she IS a professional, its her job =P anyway, i agree with salir, some characters are getting useless. (although lenalee was hot with long hair TT) personally, i loveeee dgrayman =P the artwork itself is enough to hook me, not to mention the good plots/action scenes ^^ i also agree however that the dialogues kinda lacking quality. but overall! i think dgrays an awesome manga =)

    My only problem with D.Gray-Man is that sometimes it just shouts "deus ex machina! deus ex machina!", if you'll pardon the pun. XP

    Then again, almost every manga suffers that type of thing.
