I enjoyed the anime and am enjoying the manga so far. I'm on Volume 3 of the manga. After a certain point, for my understanding, the anime differs from the manga around episode 16-17. Then it finishes itself up with it's own story. I didn't love the ending of the anime, but it was still good.

So, I'd recommend it. Both the anime and the manga.

I honestly don't know enough about D. Grayman to tell you. Overview Spoiler-Free as Possible Executive Summary: Blue Exorcist is about twin boys who were raised by an exorcist. One day, the older twin (Rin) discovers that their biological father is Satan when he attempts to indwell within their adoptive father. The story continues from there with Rin wanting to be an exorcist and, eventually, kill Satan.

I liked D.Grayman (but I read the manga only) and I couldn't get into Blue Exorcist...I saw like 2 episodes and dropped it. The best thing is to try it out and see for yourself if it is good or not.

Go with the manga. The first half of Blue Exorcist isn't bad but the second half really killed itself with the fillers. The first few episodes are pretty faithful though so those might leave some impressions.

It was pretty good then it drifted to fillers and.....Flying gate of hell shooting lasers. That all I have to say about the ending of the anime -_-'. The manga pretty decent though.

Blue Exorcist (Ao no Exorcist, AoNE) is one of my top 3 favorites right now. My advice is: don't even watch the anime. It's pretty to look at, but that's about it. IMO it's absolute garbage the way they handled it, compared to the manga. The manga is beautiful, the artwork is amazing, the story is spot on. To answer your question about D. Gray Man, they are a tad bit similar in that they both involve exorcists (obviously) and an "order" the exorcists get their missions from, but AoNE is more school life-ish and modern. DGM is set in 1800's Edo period time. It is also more gothic and has more English (as in UK) themes, where as AoNE is much more Japanese centric. I also love DGM, especially after Alma Karma, then Leah, were introduced. DGM and AoNE can be better compared at that point. Anyways, I hope this helped. I'm sure you will like AoNE if you enjoyed DGM. They are also both written by female mangaka

Manga is 1000x better imho the anime was sticking close to the manga counter part then second half got fillers and went for original anime ending completely did a 180 degrees XD. I personally prefer the manga alot more goes on and character development.
