Manga News: Check out this week's new manga (10/6/14 - 10/12/14).

The last chapter had 20 pages, so that was probably a warning sign... I noticed how she usually goes on hiatus after 20-page chapters (with massive cliffhangers). But on the bright side, the next chapter should have 30 pages as post-hiatus chapters usually do.
It's all that sweet love in the air, Hoshino and Co. are too busy stuffing their faces with candy from fans to make a longer chapter. ..... and now they all have terrible stomach aches.
Going to kill my mild disappointment with groaning about the Water Temple (The map.... it does nothing! D: ) and Psycho-Pass.
off topic: shouldn't this thread's title be DGM Hang Out Thread Part 2? since the first one is already closed... :\
on a side note, its already February, and I'll be having another month with NO DGM with the previous chapter had given me a hell of confusion, I wonder if there would be more mysteries to be unfolded...
for the mean time, I think I'll go back and read the other mangas i've missed for so long
Oh man, I almost totally forgot Hoshino designed the characters for a new mecha anime from Sunrise, and the website for it just updated with their designs, a few voice actor credits, and the first look at the main characters' voices! @3@
W-would there be any chance of a quick peek by one of the translators here at the character design notes? ;3;
And I wonder if this has been part of why she's been taking quite a few breaks!
Nice! I'm looking forward to a new anime, and I've been wanting to try mecha for a while so I'll check it out. Of course the main reason is because Hoshino is the character designer, ha ha.
I love how the characters have a Hoshino touch to them but is different at the same time. The main reason is probably because they seem to be from the future whereas DGM is set in the past. Hopefully a character sketch will be released of what she actually drew. :3
Slightly DGM related news, I guess?
I stumbled upon a Japanese blog that took a photo of the ToC of the recent Miracle Jump issue. (ANN info about Miracle Jump)
The blogger took note that the next issue's cover image will feature DGM as indicated by that small image of Allen on the back of the front cover (indicated by the red circle with the Japanese word for "here"). The image was then blown up below. Interesting to note, Miracle Jump is a bi-monthly magazine.
The blogger wonders if Hoshino is a superwoman for being able to draw a cover illustration for Miracle Jump. At the end of the post, the blogger hopes Hoshino draws a color cover for a book such as Jump SQ. (The blogger worded that a bit funny to me. I think he/she should've gone for the direct way of saying: "I want a DGM cover for SQ!!!" ^__^ Hehe...)
Now, I can see why Hoshino had a bit of a health problem last month. She was responsible for the anime character designs, Miracle Jump cover, and possibly (as fans speculate), some work on the next DGM volume. Hoshino definitely deserved the one month break for all the other projects even if she was healthy. @_@

^ I can see why you would say that, but for me----since I'm pretty patient, I think I would rather have a well-rested 100% fit mangaka than a stressed out one. ^_^ The less side projects Hoshino has to deal with, the better. If she gets those out of the way, she can probably crank out more pages depending on her schedule.
Jump's got a new magazine coming out every other month? Nice. Maybe D.gray-man can switch over to it if Hoshino can't handle SQ in the future.
(goes back to lurking for spoilers)
Now that I think about it, why is she working on other stuff anyway? She doesn't even manage to do her job, so why accept other jobs? I'd understand the change of pace thing if DGM was a weekly manga, but DGM is more like a quarterly manga nowadays, so yeah...it's not like she's doing her fans a service by creating some designs for an anime or posters or whatever. Not meaning to shit into everybody's cereals, but I don't want to be 50 when DGM's finished.
Im happy to see that she is doing a lot of different things... maybe dgm will move to miracle jump p
