For those of you who have waited all these years for a continuation of your favorite anime, don’t worry, your time has come! D.Gray-Man is finally returning with a new season! As was mentioned in 2015 by many sources, the anime will get a new season in the summer of 2016. It’s been 10 years since the start of the first season (2006), and 8 years since the first season ended (2008).
D.Gray-man Hallow, is the title of the new season of the popular manga and anime series D.Gray-man.
Both the manga and the anime went on hiatus due to the illness of the manga creator, Hoshino Katsura. In 2015, she wrote on her social media account that she’d be continuing the manga.
The first teaser for the anime was dropped in December 2015.
The first episode of the new series was previewed at a screening at Shinjuku Wald 9, on June 27th, while the episode will be aired on July 4th.
The story will follow Kanda’s arc, introducing Alma and other characters, as well as many badass fights and dramatic scenes, and many other interesting stories from the manga. The manga currently has about 7 story arcs that are not in the first anime, which means we will have plenty of episodes to look forward to!
The second trailer for the anime was released in march 2016.
For this new season, the creators have hired an entirely new cast of voice actors.
Allen Walker – Murase Ayumu
Lenalee Lee – Kakuma Ai
Yuu Kanda – Sato Takuya
Lavi – Hanae Natsuki
Those are the new voice actors for the main cast. Other new cast include:
Bookman – Ootsuka Houchuu
Alystar Krory (Aleister Crowley) – Sugiyama Noriaki
Komui Lee – Inoue Go
Mirana Lotto – Koshimizu Ami
Millenium Earl – Aoyama Yutaka
Tyki Mikk – Nishida Masakazu
Road Kamelot – Kondou Yui
Alma Karma – Asari Ryouta
Howard Link – Tachibana Shinnosuke
On top of this, Lenny code fiction, will perform the opening theme for the anime. Mashiro Ayano will perform the ending theme.
From what I can see, the animation has improved (though it was already good in 2006) and the characters look amazing as ever. The battles look fantastic so far, and I can’t wait to hear the voices for the first time. How hyped are you guys?
