This is a speculation on what could be the next arc, based on the occurrences in HQ and Allen's higher synch ratio with his innonce.
If Hoshino-sensei were to make Allen a general it creates an opening to introduce new characters as his job would be to find new accomodators of innocence. This would shift the focus onto his travels and the new exorcists he'd be looking for as preparation for a large battle which would take place.
This would make the possibility of this arc being the last be basically 0.

Okay maybe reading: THE CURRENT ARC -> the arc where the download of the new arc was announced, the arc which started with allen and co getting in the old arc (if I am correct?) which started with the skin vs kanda fight
The biggest virtue is to support these Seven Deadly Sins in their fight!!!
If I understand you correctly I would say that this is not the last arc for the manga b/c we haven't meet up with cross which I assume will happen, and taking into account the last chapter they can't just end the story with Allen becoming a general, especially not so easily
There will definitely be new Noah, since we've seen four out of... twelve, right? That's one thing that's pretty definite. ^_^ I wonder how they'd go about adding Exorcists, though - just find some? That's like taking the beginning of the story and putting it in the middle (although D.Gray-Man moved into the main storyline pretty quickly, which is pretty good~).
Recently we've been getting a lot of these threads (like in the Bleach forum for example) and I was wondering how long you think DGM will or should last. Will it reach 30 volumes like other popular series? 20 something volumes? Or maybe something like 18 volumes?
I think the series will reach more than 20 volumes, but it's possible it could end before reaching 20.
hopefully long enough for a long intricate story with much suspence to unfold, 20vol +?
well i hope it last long enough so that all our unanswerd questions are answerd, and then we end up with alot more that end up being unanswerd XP

Re: How long will/should DGM last?
I hope it will contine for more than 25 volumes at least. But i think that might be wishful thinking unless an amazing lengthy plot twist comes up . Even though it a suspenseful and intresting manga, i think if it is drawn out too long , it will loose its "pazaz".
But on the other hand i hope it never ends because it is just to darn good
I can't really see a second major story arc being pulled off in DGM like with what happened in other manga (like Bleach), and the goal isn't quite as vague and with potential for tons of side-stories, either... but I can't imagine an ending within the next few volumes, either. DGM could probably be at least twice its current length and still be great, since there's still so much left to cover - including the introduction of the rest of the Noah!
Anyway, I think it'll be just over 30 volumes. Those are selling well; there's no reason to cancel it before giving it a good ending.
There's no way it's going to end before 20 either, I think - and definitely not eighteen. Is it worth pointing out that it's on volume 16 (in terms of chapters, not released volumes) right now? =P Do you really think the entire story (Noah, musician, Earl-fight - EVERYTHING) can be wrapped up in less than forty chapters?
nice question O:.
Well maybe 27 or 30 volumes?
because it have to many question to answer also we haven't see all the Noahs.
20 volumes are too little for all the answers to the questions and the introduccion of 6 or 7 noahs o_O.
the fight of kanda and skin is in just one volumen o,o.Like lavi Vs Road.
so i think we will have more than 25 volumes D: .
we also need to find out character history on loads of people such as kanda and who is the person he wants to kill and how he got that curse thing, and i think we need to find out how the earl first corrupted the clan of the noah becuase been decendents of noah i doubt they were always evil, so i think it will go over 34 with ease
