A synopsis of the D.Gray-man manga is provided by ANN:

Akuma, monsters born from dead souls mistakenly recalled by their loved ones to the living world, are the weapons of the Millenium Earl, who is intent on the destruction of the world. Allen Walker has been cursed with an anti-Akuma weapon as his left arm and an eye that sees the former soul of the Akuma since his youth. He is also one of the few who contain “Innocence”, a substance that allows him to kill Akuma and fight the Earl. With these powers, he joins the Black Priest Organization as an Exorcist and sets out with other Exorcists to stop the Earl’s attempts to annihilate the human race.

D.Gray-man had inspired an earlier anime adaptation produced by TMS Entertainment. The original anime ran for 103 episodes from October 3, 2006 to September 20, 2008. It is licensed for release in North America by Funimation.

    The first key visual may imply that the new anime may continue from where the first anime left off. Hopefully there should be no filler arcs.
