Personally, my Nighterman senses tell me that the D.Gray-Man TV animation will fail to meet the high expectations set upon it. Just my gut instinct though.

Just watched Ep 1 I'm pleased with the animation and style. The VA for Allen is pretty good. I think she does a good job voicing Allen. Music is also pretty good.

Yup, Opening and Ending theme was nice.

Ep1 follows the first couple chapters in the manga, the whole Mao x Crea part. Love the VA for the Millenuim Earl, creepy and old. Perfect.

Overall it was a nice show, worth watching.

I just watched the raw, the animation was ok but tv tokyo as usuall likes to censor some things. What stuck most on my mind was the opening which was reaaally good. I just love the opening could listen to it all day long XD

Well for being one of my favourite animes, I guess its a thumbs up!

Just watched it. Not bad, I suppose.

The OP itself was bloody generic, but the song was pretty good. Nothing fancy, but it's loop material for me.

I'll half-take back what I said about not living up to expectations. 1 episode is hardly judging material, but compared to the manga, it seems that they've upped the whole atmosphere eerie-ness, with a better balance of music and low lighting effects to make it more creepy, even though the bambling policemen kinda spoiled the mood. The animation was pretty good overall, but there one or 2 scenes where it was a little bit off and done awkwardly, particular the still frames. Not really problems though.

The ED is not bad...but I'm not sure if it's a fitting song as of yet. Next week, KANDA!!! RINALI!!!

On another note, what has TV Tokyo censored? Cause I didn't notice anything.

I watched the first episode now and i´m a little dissapointed. I expect more from an anime based on D.Gray-Man.

Somehow i got the feeling, ever since the mangaka had this illness (couldn`t continue the manga series for nearly a month), that they want to bring the series to an end. In addition to that, i think, that the drawing style "changed" after that (like this manga which are just made for an anime; kinda that way). Very strange...

Ep. 1 screencaps and summary

The animation seemed pretty good and the story moved along with a mixture of mild comedy and action. It was not an overwhelming episode, but pretty good introduction. I'm hoping it'll get better.

Same here.... anyways.. review of the first episode.

Animation 3/5 - about what I was expecting. The characters dont move around extremely fluidly but they arent static either.

Drawings 4/5 Not bad. faithful to the manga as much as someone trying to copy hoshino katsuras style can be.

Music 5/5. awesome. The simple twings and twangs( dont know how best to describe it) that make up most classic horror films soundtracks really fit here... gave it a kind of Castlevania feel.

Seiyuus 5/5 Allens actor suits him I think, but the real star of the episode was the earl. Damn he was BAD ASS!

Pacing 4/5 As much as I would like them to have sped through this first little story like they did, they dont have much material to work off from, I would like them to take it easy and just make each and every part of the begginings as cool as possible. That is, if they are really going to keep it 100% faithful to the manga.

overall i give it a 4/5. I was extremely pleased as I was very apprehensious(sp?) about how it was going to come out. So far so good D gray man fans!!!

I liked it. It's not my genre, and I don't know the manga, but I thought it was excellently done all round. Great look and animation, and excellent voice acting. Kobayashi Sanae (Madlax, Lucy/Nyuu in Elfen Lied, Maya in Glass Mask) as Allen sounded great, and there's no complainng about Yukino Satsuki as the policewoman. Yoshida Reiko didn't just do series comp, she did the script, for this ep at least. Well constructed and good looking, even if it didn't have much real tension.

I appreciated the fairly accurate view of Big Ben and Westminster Bridge. But there was no such thing as a policewoman in London the 19th century (began in 1918). I'm not likely to continue, because of the genre, but it looks good.

Episode 1 subbed has just been released by SD. They said it's a "barebones release" where there is no karaoke FX but it is translated and edited. I guess I will take their word on it. Can't wait to get home.

Edit:
Oh yeah, someone asked this but it was never answered. What exactly were censored in this episode?
