‘D.Gray-Man’ Sequel Anime Series Coming

2 min read

D.Gray-Man 2016Fans of D.Gray-Man have a whole lot to be happy about as it’s been revealed at the Jump Festa event this weekend that the property is getting a new anime adaptation. And, by all appearances, a continuation as opposed to a remake. Details are still a bit light at the moment but the promotional video has arrived for it and the reveal of two of the main voice cast with Ayumu Murase as Allen and Shinnosuke Tachibana as Howard Link. These roles were originally played by Sanae Kobayashi and Daisuke Kishio in the original series back in 2006 that ran for 103 episodes. Only the first half of it was licensed and released in North America by FUNimation. Which will make this interesting going forward if FUNimation tackles the simulcast and it is a sequel as to whether the option on the missing half will be exercised and if we’ll get a new re-release of what was previously brought out.

The series is based on the manga from Katsura Hoshino that began in 2004. It originally kicked off in Shounen Jump and then moved to Jump SQ back in 2009. It’s currently up to 24 volumes total, which Viz Media has released in North America in full.

Plot concept: Toward the end of the 19th century, Allen Walker officially joins the organization of Exorcists that destroys the beings known as Akuma—mechanic weapons made by the Millennium Earl with the suffering souls of the dead. Allen has both a cursed eye and an anti-Akuma weapon as an arm, bearing the power of “Innocence,” a gift given to him as an apostle of God. Allen, along with his fellow Exorcists, must put a stop to the Millennium Earl’s ultimate plot that could lead to the destruction of the world and all who live on it.
