would you say that the plot in D Gray Man kinda represents WWII since there is obviously a war and the time period in the anime takes place somewhere in a period similar to that of WWII?

I think that even if it takes place at the same time period as of WWII, it is a different war.Although in the latest chapters, it has been said that a real war has been going on excluding the war of the exorcists and the earl (along with the noahs and akumas).Perhaps that is the WWII, which is a humane war.However,as also explained from the latest chapters,because of the tragedy brought by the historical WWII in D.Gray-man, akumas are born and so this becomes another war.You can say that this another war which involves the exorcists is a holy war or jihad.It's like a war within a war XD So there are two wars existing at D.Gray-man's period of time.

The other difference between the war in D.Gray-man and the WWII is that the WWII is more of a war between countries while D.Gray-man's war (the holy war as I mentioned earlier) is a war of opposing parties (Black Order against the Earl of the Millenium and his minions).

Hehehehehe I know my explanation is kind of complicated so sorry...

it's closer to WW! actually...the 1880's...but I think Hoshino is intentionally trying to show some of the echoes of past wars in this series.

guys. WWII is 1945. history.
anywho, yes, i'd say it could be an allusion to WWI, buuuut just because it takes place in the same sort of period (forgetting black order sci-fi-ness). As to actual events.... does it really line up? i'm a skeptic.gorbal's answer is closest. sort of a jumble of a bunch of wars.

well it is definitely pre-airplane travel... so it is possible that it is WWII, but i'm assuming it is PRE-WWII because Europe (which is where most of this has taken place) is not engulfed in flames and hellish forms of death. also WWII started in 1939-1945, but some believe it was as early as 1937 with the annexation of Austria by Germany/Hitler

I remember on the first episode that there were words shown saying "an imaginary end of the 19th century".So I think that it's actually post-World War 2 in real history.Maybe in D.Gray-man's period, the war is either still going on or it is a new war which is made by the author and that which isn't in real history.XD
