Funimation announced yesterday that they finally acquired the rights to episodes 52 through 103 of D.Gray-man. However, a release date for the remaining episodes has not been announced yet.
This acquisition comes hot on the heels of their announcement last week of D.Gray-man HALLOW being part of their summer simulcast season. HALLOW is a continuation of the original series, though many of the original cast members have been replaced. The original series ended in 2008, but HALLOW premieres on July 4th.
The first 51 episodes of the original D.Gray-man are already available for streaming and home video release.
Funimation provided a synopsis:
Darkness is moving in, and young exorcist Allen Walker is humanity’s greatest hope against the wicked forces conspiring to bring civilization to its knees. Akuma – cruel spirits born of tragedy and lost souls – lurk in every shadow, willing and eager to do the bidding of their leader, the dread Millennium Earl. With an eye cursed to see evil in its truest form and blessed with an arm to slay soul-devouring demons, Allen stands ready to confront the gathering evil. Should he fail, Innocence will be lost forever. The war to decide the fate of mankind has begun – and the carnage will be endless.
