An akuma is a soul which has been brought back to life through sadness and despair with the powers of Millenium Earl. Their mission is to terrorize the earth and all who dwell within it. The Black Order is a group of Exorcists that have sworn to cleanse the souls of the akuma, and collect the substance known as "innocence". This powerful substance can be used as an anti-akuma weapon, and ultimately can help destroy the evil Millenium Earl. Allen Walker is a young Exorcist who has the ability to tell who is human and who is an akuma with the help of his cursed eye. Together with the Black Order, Allen must find all 109 pieces of innocence to protect the world and defeat Earl.
If you liked D.Gray-man or Dance in the Vampire Bund, you would like the other. Both series have a darker plot with a satisfying range of characters, although D.Gray-man has more humor mixed into the storyline. Both series have beautiful animation. Allen Walker and Kaburagi Akira seem to have an inescapable destiny and have dark or mysterious pasts.
If you like one, you will definitely like the other. :)
A giant wall looms over Tokyo, shielding the city from a dangerous otherworld called the 'Hell's Gate'. Within the city, things are no less terrifying because Contractors, psychopathic killers with phenomenal powers, have started to appear. These killers are compelled to pay a price every time they use their powers, often in the form of a meaningless or painful task. As their deadly habits rack up a gruesome death toll, Kirihara Misaki and her team from the Foreign Affairs Public Security struggle to solve the cases and bring the Contractors under control. Their task is further confounded by the interference of a masked individual they title Messier Code BK201, a man with abilities that allow him to fight and defeat the Contractors. Who is this BK201? How can the Contractors be stopped permanently? And what does the appearance of the Hell's Gate mean for the people of Tokyo?

Both men have special powers and friends/comrades to help them on their quest to rid the world of evil.
Tsuzuki Asato is a shinigami: a guardian of death. Acting as an investigator in Juuouchou, the bureau in charge of ensuring that each soul passes through the cycle of life naturally, his job often involves dealing with those who would disrupt this cycle. His life after death is about to change, however, as he is assigned a new partner, Kurosaki Hisoka, for a case in Nagasaki - a case seeming to involve some sort of vampire. But the two shinigami soon find that something deeper lies behind this blood-sucking menace...
If you liked D.Gray-man, you'd also like Descendents of Darkness because it also deals with the same kind of plot: there's a secret order that fights evil beings that are attacking innocent people. It is sort of different but I think that if you like this, you will also enjoy Descendents of Darkness.
As an orphan whose life is in the hands of space pirates, Coud has had no choice but to survive on bravado alone. He has nothing to live for until he finds Ren entombed amongst the treasures in the pirate ship's hold, and awakens her. In addition to being mysterious and beautiful, Ren can transform into a battle sword to help Coud fight and prove his strength -- but with this strength comes the bitter realization that power alone is not enough. Now, in a race against time, Coud must endure betrayals and fierce battles as he struggles to return Ren to her home, before it's too late...
This is one anime I fully enojoyed. In this anime, you use something called Innocence for your weapon. Iin Elemental Gelade, you use a Eden Raid for your weapon. Both series are about two guys, who both have amazing weapons, on a journey to defeat the villain and balance their own social life at the same time! You'll definitely enjoy this anime :]
Like most boys his age, the young Renton thinks of nothing but reffing – riding trapar waves on a board – and idolizes Holland, the leader of the renegade group of reffers named Gekko State. As an orphan of a famous hero, he lives a boring life with his grandfather until the beautiful Eureka crashes, literally, into his life. Now, with the help of his newfound friend and crush, Renton finds himself living amongst the crew of Gekko State. The errands are hard and the bullying is fierce, but with Eureka by his side, Renton just might find the courage to tough it out and even save the world!
Both E7 and D.Gray-man are about boys in similar circumstances with similar ideals. In each there is a war surrounding them, and they are the last best hope for it all. Using their sheer willpower and belief they fight for those who they care about.
If you like anime with action and a humanitarian side then these anime are for you.
