Thanks for the links!
I like how we can see Hoshino made some references from her one-shots to DGM. For example, some of her character designs (Robin, the earl, etc.) and ideas (e.g. akuma, the Zombie Arc, etc.) are now a part of DGM.
I think I'll prefer to call the Zombie Arc something that Hoshino squeezed in for the sake of drawing it. :X I think I read somewhere that she loves zombies more than akuma. X'DDDD
And on a random note, you guys probably won't believe how long it took for us to realise that they were talking about zombies in Continue (and we realised that only because the coloured page was talking about zombies! XDDD).
Thanks! I had read Zone before but never Continue.
@addenza - well she did say Lavi was originally for a manga she was going to do called Bookman but she never did it.
i always wondered what that last picture in Noche was from, now I know it was from Continue!
i hope the one shot is d.gray-man characters in school!! and hopefully it can become an ova

If the one shot is about DGM, i'm starting to think that it can be about Cross' past. That image repeated in volume 22 is suspicious.
I think maybe Cross could be like Mendel, a priest/monk involved with science. And then something made him turn 180 degrees in his life.
aaah, i liked the girl she did. But i hope that it'll have something with dgm )
It looks somewhat like a sci-fi or futuristic type with that alien-like creature next to the girl. Of course, it could be an Innocence if it does involve DGM.
^That's true since the Kanda cover connects with the Allen one so it will become a poster. Maybe Hoshino will introduce a new character by using the one-shot?
Hmm... Maybe, that girl is a new waitress for Kanda's soba shop!! ....Just kidding!
(Still think it's a great idea of Kanda being a taishou [boss] and catch Allen in the act of eating all the soba...)
If we change the katakana to hiragana, we get: 回転 (turning/rotating), 開店 (grand opening *nudge nudge*), or 回天 (changing the world). I'm going to keep speculating that it's 開店 for something... o__o
I found this quote in this blog
I guess the one-shot takes place in modern time?Quote:
To see Hoshino do something with a modern setting would be very interesting... And strange! I know that D.Gray-Man has a lot of technology when regarding the science department, but to have something completely up to date would be very different. I wonder what county(ies) the one-shot will take place in. She seems to like utilizing many different areas in DGM.
