At the end of episode 3 I had the impression that Kanda sent Tohma to serve as fodder for the Akuma in order for Allen to make his escape. Kanda took for granted that Allen would become flesh for the beast and chose make use of a pawn (Tohma) as a safeguard for Allen.

Kanda in his most jerk manner made himself clear that he's no ones ally and just commits to guarantee the safety and success of the mission. If he ever would send tools or pawns for Allen was it on the criteria that Exorcists are valuable due to their compability with Innocence, therefore, making them non-expendable whereas finders are expendable as toilet paper are.

But, episode four crushed that hypothetical view of mine. Kanda simply sends Tohma for scouting purposes, that is to observe and study the capabilities that the newly evolved Akuma can now exert.
Kanda knows the mission comes first above all, however, the Akuma is a persistent bastard to follow on their tails for ensuring the destruction of the Ghost. Kanda cannot let such a threat running amok scott-free, so information was to be gathered in order for him to devise a best strategy to counter such a freak.

Too bad that the LV2 Akuma went four steps ahead of Kanda.

For episode five.

Oh, my God! For a change Kanda actually displays some human heart rather than staying true to his jerk self to the end.

fantastic episode!!

The action and animation was the best so far and the music and voice acting was great. Very emotional at the end. If this series keeps this up i see it getting very popular in the coming year, because it only gets better. Way better. It will certainly reach american shores eventually.

Yay for episode 5. It really showed that Kinda isn't a cold-harted ignorant brat as I first though. He has feelings aswell, hehe

Allens powers are interesteing indeed. He seems to be much stronger than I though..! Go Allen!

I would have liked to see Guzol's real face though...he had it hidden udner a mask all the time and int he end you only saw his mouth and a bit of his nose. Lala's and Guzol's realationship was really cute.

Very poignant episode. I really wish shounen series had more moments like these. It adds value to them in my opinion. Ep05 seals D.Gray-man as a keeper for me.

Cheers.

Episode 05 was one powerful episode.. i had no idea D. Gray-Man in a whole had moments like these. I'll be strongly waiting for anything else like that to happen in the future - and needing a OST release right now wouldn't be so bad. :3

Just to stir your stimulated tastebuds from that powerful taste, this is just the beginning. And you haven't seen nothing yet.

Episode 5 was indeed great and powerful, but from the point of a manga reader, I personally thought that the art direction here was somewhat weak. It felt...conventional while the manga had a fleeting sombre tone using a balance of light constrasting dark within the whole moment when it was reaching it's end... Kinda like the atmosphere wasn't poignant enough. But good episode nevertheless.

yeah. Hopefully the animators will get better at it as the series goes on. There will be episodes where the animation is way better than normal. They always do that.

I was kind of dissapointed that they left out allens subdoing of the doll at the beggining of the episode. She's supposed to throw a piller at him, allen catches it, and hurls it back towards her spiraling and destroying all the other pillars in the room, with nothing left to throw, she calms down and talks.

Haven't watched eps 5 yet, but God, the more I watch it, the more its boring...must be the Death Note effect

Come on, such a fuss was made around the manga, I honestly thought the story was more original than that...The fighting scenes aren't exciting either.

Eps 2 and 3 are too dark, speaking of the colors : I barely see what's happening. (plus I have bad eyesight ^^")
And that evolved demon is just so plain, screaming every here and there...

Well, I'm usually fond of cocky and arrogant characters, but Kanda just pisses me off : hope Allen will shut that samurai jerk's trap.

I think I will wait the appearance of new characters (the ones in the OP clip) to catch up.
