Trivia / D.Gray-Man

  • Cross-Dressing Voices: Allen's Japanese voice actor in the first series is Sanae Kobayashi.
  • Doing It for the Art: At this point, after years of hiatuses and with a chapter every 3 months, Hoshino is no longer concerned by cancellation (the Jump SQ Crown mostly publishes one-shots anyway) and can pretty much do whatever she wants with her series. It's very unlikely that the latest volumes would have veered off so much from a traditional shonen formula if the series had stayed weekly.
  • I Knew It: The Earl has horns. Doubly so for those who read Zone, the oneshot that provided the inspiration for the entire series.
  • The Other Darrin: In the 2016 series, most of the cast have new voices.
  • Talking to Himself: Lavi has the same English voice actor as the Millennium Earl. According to The Other Wiki, he was voiced by Chris Patton in episodes 27 and 28, and went back to his original actor in episode 40. Some fans wonder what was with all that?
  • What Could Have Been: Todd Haberkorn, also the director, knew about the Black Order members being British, and contemplated putting those accents on them. He decided against it because the test recordings made Allen sound harsher and less appealing, and their natural accents would be easier on the actors (this was when they had planned to dub the show to the end, like a long-runner).
    • Lavi was originally intended to be main character for the series called "BOOK-MAN", a project which never reached beyond the planning stages. Still, the author wanted to use him and Bookman so they made it into D.Gray-man as side characters instead.
