But it's also been running for over 20 years, so it's fanbase spans generations. Add in the recent anime movie project, those two have had a spike in popularity, bolstered by other media. DGM doesn't really have that. But even so, I don't see it's audience disappearing at all.
    Yes, that's one of the reasons to pic them as example.
    We never got a chart with age range for DGM in Jump SQ. Actually i don't remember anyone posting anything about Jump SQ and age range.
    I have to aim for diversity cause we are in the dark.
    Hmmm, i think i will do a quick search, maybe there is something somewhere.

    No, i didn't find any research about age range on Jump SQ or D.gray-man after it went to Jump SQ.

    Re: The DGM Hiatus Thread

    From what I remember, SQ's readership is somewhat older, despite it still being a shounen magazine. It's sort of reflected in some of the titles having a more mature edge to them.

    Re: The DGM Hiatus Thread

    DGM is better off than D.N.Angel. The author frequently puts it on hiatus for years at a time to work on brand-new series.

    Legal Drug was on hiatus for years as well, and X will probably never be taken off hiatus.

    Re: The DGM Hiatus Thread

    Well so much for the tantrums only being on other sites.

    I believe the height of DGM's popularity was probably while the anime was running, when it was next most popular after the so-called "Big Three." Fourth most popular anime in Japan. That ended with a big cliffhanger as everyone here probably knows, which upped people's appetite in the manga instead. Things may not be the same as a few years ago, but if even now, sales are still relatively strong since the anime ended (which they seem to be), I don't see anything to worry about.

    Also I don't get all this doom and gloom about "artist's intentions" and "silence." It's fairly clear right now that the intent on both the publisher and mangaka's part is to continue when possible. Is it really that hard to understand writers and artists aren't sweatshop workers who have to slave through illness and injury? Like any other artist Hoshino might be able to do some light side work here and there (she may even be contractually obligated by Shueisha), but that doesn't require anywhere near the time and effort she has invested in DGM. None of it even comes close!

    Re: The DGM Hiatus Thread

    No artist is contractually obligated to do oneshots. That isn't anything I've ever heard of. Artists make a base salary, and are then paid per page, with them earning more for color pages and any extra work they do for the tankoubons. They're also obviously paid for any licensing for their series, be it toys, other merchandise, anime, videogames, etc. I'm sure most mangaka have a bunch of ideas for series floating around in their heads. Oneshots are just another avenue to float something new out there to gauge a response. If such a contract existed, where they're required to do so many oneshots, I'd seriously doubt it'd be with someone like Hoshino, who isn't necessarily prolific. It'd be a hinderance to DGM. That's why it makes a ton more sense that she elected to design an anime, and do a oneshot. She isn't contractually obligated to do so many DGM chapters per year obviously, so why would she be obligated to do anything else of that nature?

    Re: The DGM Hiatus Thread

    I'm kind of surprised that I haven't been on here for 5 months and there hasn't been a chapter yet.

    Re: The DGM Hiatus Thread

    I've heard a couple of rumors about the reason for the author's hiatus but I think they are mostly just people trying to come up with reasons for it. Everything from she is sick...again to she is pregnant/has a baby, to she has broken (insert bone here). Who knows when the series is coming back, but I honestly wish she'd give us a explanation.

    Re: The DGM Hiatus Thread

    We have an official explanation: she is recovering from illness.

    They're not obligated to tell us more than that unless something changes about her or the series' status.

    Not in this issue.
    The ToC is already out. But i was expecting that, cause when DGM comes back after such a long hiatus, it will appear in the cover or the site/twitter.
    We saw the preview of the cover a few days ago. I was only waiting for the confirmation.

    Re: The DGM Hiatus Thread

    I've been getting into other manga since this has been on hiatus, which are all pretty good. But I miss this manga a lot lol
    It'd be really nice to know why she is sick, it's worrying for the author and the series. It's starting to get frustrating how we aren't being told.
    Anyway I hope it comes back at least next year..

    Re: The DGM Hiatus Thread

    Has it been more than a year since DGM had a hiatus?

    I've been reading other manga as well, but I'm still sad that the series is still on a hiatus. I hold a soft spot for DGM, and my only wish is that Hoshino-sensei hasn't lost her drive to complete the series.
