Manga News: Check out this week's new manga (10/13/14 - 10/19/14).
Forum News: The nomination phase of the Community Awards 2014 is live! Visit new sections for Nisekoi and Kingdom!
@ Verd: Thanks. I learn something new with kokoro no tomo.
Edit below: ToC is added in a spoiler tag.
Edit 2: Consolidated the first quote into a spoiler tag to make the post smaller.
Until we get the ToC,I'm blinking my eyes like crazy seeing this here in the SQ thread. (Although, I think DGM fans, over at the DGM section, got a little antsy looking for any "sign" of SQ information that they'll do anything by scouring the internet.)
I'm going to think in big realistic terms that this poster means volume 24, unless,...otherwise, because of the responses below it. SQ subscribers should've obtained their issues by now. It seems pretty slow on getting the spoilers out (meaning ToC and some other series other than the usual like Claymore and Owari).
Just going to observe these people with a looking glass (for now).
ToC for Jan 2014 issue (Dec. 4)

Here's to another month of waiting as usual. Remember to be patient, everyone. ^^;

Actually, I hate to say it but those are just a bunch of posts generally complaining about Hoshino's art style having developed to look too BL-like (as well as wondering where female characters like Lenalee went), calling it gross, and wishing she'd pay someone else to draw the series. They discuss whether she'd have the funds, and then decide of their own accord that she must supposedly have the money from all the sales (referencing the number of volumes sold), and merchandise (while conveniently forgetting how spread out those sales are and not considering that she isn't necessarily receiving the lion's share of profits from those). This is why I don't care to read boards like those.
^ Right. That's why I put down "they just need to understand", but I appreciate your clarification. They aggravated me somewhat. I just couldn't help posting some of them here, since I've rarely seen people talk about DGM this much in that particular board. If only we were in Japan, I would probably dare risk a 2ch moderation (if there was such a thing) of saying, 「ばかね！！男人はかっこいいよ」 to these guys. Gahhh... Now that you mentioned it, I think I've seen other posts in the SQ board about some guys worried about SQ becoming more "BL"... *head desk*
I'm glad there are male readers, who do appreciate the quality/style of Hoshino's manga. Just wish the rest of the male SQ readers be happy with their Claymores/To Love-Rus and leave Hoshino alone. >__< Of course, it's never that simple and it's best to simply ignore them... *sighs*

sigh another month of waiting. its been a year now from the last chapter. hopefully she's feeling better but does anyone know whats wrong with her? a year break for any artist is a very long time (im going into an art career myself) hopefully shes not overworking herself in anyway.
The 2013 MH Yearbook is coming out soon so if you want to submit anything, please go HERE. ^^
I apparently miss D.Gray-Man so much that I dreamed a chapter came out last night...
I have always loved the fact that Hoshino would change up art styles for me it's what makes her unique and not once has any of the styles she's incorporated into her series have made it worse for the eyes.
Allen's dare I say infamous "embarrassed" (???) blush in chapter 215 was a bit much, I'd agree. Personally, I find the melancholy (even in one case, angry) blushing in the chapters immediately prior to that understandable though.
Mangahere told me that a new chapter was out so I was excited.... turns out that it was a rescan of Chapter 90 instead. False alarm! I can't believe it's been a year already.
Regarding Hoshino's art style: I think her latest style is more shoujo than BL, but it doesn't change the fact that I still enjoy her art. I think the next chapter will provide us with a different style than what we've seen from the latest chapters.
She however does sugarcoat scenes a lot, when seeing Tyki in his human form he does give the BL character look, same for Kanda. The adessing Tyki makes towards Allen calling him Shonen. Every scene of close friendship is either overly sugarcoated (Allen with Road or Allen with Lenalee) or its tsundere (Allen and Kanda). Hoshino tends to go overboard on the emotions which might give the wrong idea about the relation between the 2 characters.

If i dare say DGM is a manga that defies all genres and is hard to label. It doesn't follow a path of BL shoujo or typical shonen. This can be a blessing as well as a curse when placing it in a magazine. But still i think it has a right to shine and that has been acknowledged. To be moved out of WSJ to SQ alone is rare. Usually if an artist cant keep up it gets canceled. It just means DGM is alive and i'm thankful for that.
with all this news about DGM coming out, the new volume and such, what are the chances that a new DGM chapter comes out in a couple of weeks as a sort of surprise?
