So is there a chapter 174 this week?
It didn't say that there won't be one this week, so I assume that we will have ch. 174 this week.
Apparently, 174 this week but no 175 next week.
Why??? even thought the anime is so close?
no 175 next week, really? NO! hopefully it's on hiatus for only one week.

Anime's ending, so it's not like Hoshino has to worry about that. Yes, it's probably for one week? (Geez, you'd think people would be used to this by now. :P)
I kinda used to it, but that doesn't make me feel any better, I didn't recover from the last pause yet!
Another break?! Seriously, Hoshino seems to take a lot of breaks recently....
Does anyone know why she takes so many breaks? Other mangaka don't do this, right?
To do research, right? And I think she probably ran out of ideas for the arc after this one... So she needs more time to think far ahead. That's my guess, in any case. >"<
yeah that's what was stated at the end of chapter 174... hoshino needs to collect data
i bet she's preparing for the next arc.. or to reveal kanda's past
I'm suprised. I thought most manga-ka made the whole story beforehand.
I guess it depends though.
Collecting data but maybe also just taking a break. Since I thought about it, breaks aren't that bad anymore (they are still somewhat... annoying for the reader but whatever).
Just imagine you're a manga-ka, working like 14 hours a day, drawing and drawing and drawing. Of course, you love your job but it's nonetheless exhausting, sitting the whole day, bending.
Even a manga-ka needs rest and they always need the full time until the dead-line, sometimes they even have to hurry to make it in time. Now, imagine you are working 365 days in a year, or maybe with one week holiday. Don't you think you would feel completely exhausted without a single break here and then? I would. =.=
The issue is that Hoshino takes more breaks than most. :P Still, remember that she's been sick and injured in the past, hence the LONG breaks of previous years, and she still continues to draw. She just got back to doing seventeen pages again! We should be happy for what we get.
As for the ideas thing, well, maybe... it's not that she doesn't know the story itself, but she may not have planned the next arc in very much detail and needs some extra time to do that. =)
I'm not complaining, just curious! I'm grateful for every gorgeous chapter she gives us, and that her art just seems to get better and better... Mm.
