 D.Gray-man wallpaper
Since I've wrote about alot of Shojo animes/mangas I've decided to write about a whole ton of my favorite Shonens! Well I haven't decided which manga/anime is my favorite.........I love them all!!!

If you don't know, Shonen manga's are basically more aimed at boy's at the age of 10-18. They contain more Action, Comedy, Adventure and fun! What kind of Action? Well! The kind of Action in Jackkie Chan movies! Guns, Fighting........Maybe not but you got the idea. Each Shonen manga have their own unique and interesting story. Also you may have heard of the magazine, Shonen Jump! Its the brother, sister magazine of Shojo Beat!

For today I will start out with D.Gray-man!

Summary: 19th century England and 15 year old Exorcist, Allen Walker......I don't know how to explain this! Here! A more simpler way of explaining the story line! The story is basically about Allen Walker and his fellow Exorcists from the Black Order. They are sent all over the world to defeat the Akuma, a demon-like weapon created by the Millennium Earl. Thats not their only mission, they have to find the mysterious substance called Innocence before the Earl does!

Note: Exorcist weapons are called Anti-akuma weapons. Allen posesses an anti-akuma weapon in his left arm. This type is called a Parasite Anti-akuma weapon where it allows the Exorcist to morph his body into a weapon.



I really love the story line! I love how the mangaka blends Comedy, Action, Tragedy and a bit of Romance (you can tell if you read the story) The art gets better and better throughout the story. Everything is well done!

Summary: (From mangareader.net because I was in a hurry) Before Naruto's birth, a great demon fox had attacked the Hidden Leaf Village. A man known as the 4th Hokage sealed the demon inside the newly born Naruto, causing him to unknowingly grow up detested by his fellow villagers. Despite his lack of talent in many areas of ninjutsu, Naruto strives for only one goal: to gain the title of Hokage, the strongest ninja in his village. Desiring the respect he never received, Naruto works towards his dream with fellow friends Sasuke and Sakura and mentor Kakashi as they go through many trials and battles that come with being a ninja.

I really love ninjas! But.......this keeps going on and on!! I wonder when it will end soon........this manga is pretty old. There is even a second season! Naruto Shippuden! If you haven't heard of Naruto.....where have you been?! Naruto is known all over the world! It became the most popular and ongoing Shonen manga/anime ever! I wonder how it will end? Thats my only complaint! The story just lags on and on...........

My best friend gave me the books for this manga and I was totally hooked onto them! I really enjoyed this manga/anime! But.......why did it end? The mangaka did a great job in puting more Romance and Action in each Book! Chrono is hot.........and he is cute at the same time!!

Summary: (From mangafox.com) An overachieving 12th grader, Yagami Light is an aspiring young man who seems destined for success. Unfortunately, his daily habits bore his incredible intelligence--So when a strange black notebook falls from the heavens during his class, it isn't long before he takes it for himself. In his room, he finds, to his horror/fascination, that the Death Note is real, and owned by Ryuk, a Shinigami (Death God).

Any person's name written in the Death Note will die in 40 seconds as long as the person's name is not the same as some one else. But if the name is unique, the person will die.... without fail.
With this supposed gift of God, Light swears upon his grave that he will 'cleanse' the world of the evil and needless people that inhabit it, thus creating a utopia for all. With the world's greatest detective, L, hot on his tail, will Light's ideals prove too fantastic to realize, or will he succeed bringing justice?



It was getting too weird for me but overall it was great! The story line is oustanding!! It just drawing me in no matter where I start and end! It got weird as it kept going though.........Yagami went all pshyco.......:D
