It looks like a second Noah's flood is coming our way, but not if the exorcist Allen Walker has anything to say about it. Using the power of Innocence, Allen along with the Black Order plan to stop Noah's family for good.

Overview

D. Gray Man focuses on the young exorcist Allen Walker and his interactions with the Black Order and the Millennium Earl, Noahs, and the Akumas. The Black Order is an organization of exorcists that uses innocence to combat against Akumas (English: Demon) of the Millennium Earl's army. The Millennium Earl creates Akumas from using artificial skeletons and people's regret for the dead. Specifically, the Millennium Earl takes advantage of humans who lost their loved ones and promise them that he bring them back. He has linked the soul to an artificial skeleton, but the skeleton always kills the loved one and goes inside the corpse. The purpose of the Millennium Earl is unknown at the time but the Black Order's purpose to eradicate the Millennium Earl, Akuma, and the Noahs.

Evolution of Exorcists and Akumas Throughout the Series is an Arms Race

Note: (Can be under themes but this is a short summary)

Both the good and the evil sides can evolve in a arms race. In the series, Akumas level up and evolve when they kill more humans or eat their own kind. For exorcists, the evolution of Exorcists and their innocence is tricky. The only examples of evolution is the newer versions of innocence such as parasitic and the changes in innocence. Akumas are deadly enemies whose virus is incurable and spreads quickly until exorcists with parasitic innocence such as Allen Walker, Crowley, and others appear. For the changes in innocence, Lenalee's innocence is the only example when her equipment type becomes crystal and merges with her blood.

Gray-Man are the missions to recover innocence and combat Akumas (half of the series), mission to find the generals and to protect them from the Noah, Allen's struggle to save a fallen exorcist in China, trip to Japan to find the general Cross and the hidden Akuma factory plus Noah, Allen's struggle to heal and materialize his strange innocence in China (occurs at the same time with the trip to Japan), reunion of Allen Walker with his teammates in Japan, battles in Noah Ark, and finally the Black Order massacre.
