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


end of 19th century should be late 1800s
coz 1st century is starting frm 0 CE
therefore it should be pre WWII

I think it helps out in the WWII.. But I'm not sure cause I'm not good in history. Is the timeline the same? As in, is D Gray Man occuring during the time of WWII??

Er... I personally think the happening is more of during WW1, cus if you watch the earlier episodes(I think is ep7), you can see the year is around 1800- at Mana's grave when Allen was still young(before meeting Cross). But I don't think it has any links to WW1, just that many Japanese and Christian(correct me if I'm wrong, cus I'm not a Christian) background are added to the story.

Nope. Maybe around the WWI period. Its a much logical viewing. For by the WWII period, there were cars.... whereas in D.grayman, the people were using.. horsepower. But nonetheless, I believe this happened before the both world wars. If not, the Earl would have a chockingful of akumas and the order would have lost the war... long time ago...

Note: 19th century was the century before the twentieth century where the 20th century had 2 world wars.

Yes, I noticed that too. The locations in D. Gray-Man are similar with the locations of the important happenings in WWI like China, Italy, Germany, Brazil, and of course...Japan. And D. Gray-Man is a very historically accurate anime (e.g. There was a town named Mateel and Edo was the Tokyo's old name)

WWI was a time of great despair and fear. I believe that the Akuma are symbolic to the manifestations of the fear and despair continually feeding on other's sorrow and gradually growing (leveling up in the anime, perhaps?) The Earl and Noah symbolize the people who manipulate man's sorrows, perhaps for what they think is the greater good, but then we all know that the end does not justify the means.

The exorcists are the people who feel this despair the most (children, soldiers, etc.) though they might give in to the temptations of the "manipulators", they are the ones who stand strong for they draw their strength from the strongest being of them all: GOD.

This only supports Katsura Hoshino's genius and plus there was that Hitler dude, of course
