If they plan to touch the anime again I too would prefer a reboot. The first anime had some good instances here and there, but just wasn't really up to scratch enough for me. The animation quality was too inconsistent and some episodes that you'd think the animators would put a little more effort on they just didn't. On top of that the first animators' attention to story detail was shitty at some points which really kinda threw off some logic.If you all were paying attention to the episode where Allen and Bookman were fighting the level 3's for example. Did anyone stop to ask "how the hell was Bookman killing level 3's in masses when a couple episodes ago he couldn't even face one?". This may seem small but to me stuff like this just really got underneath my skin. Lastly i'd just ask for not as much fillers in the new adaptation. D gray man has a really tightly wrapped story so certain fillers could even become highly contradictory.
I'm actually happy the oneshot has nothing to do with d gray man. It gives me a rare opportunity to see just how versatile Hoshino is as an artist and an author. I highly anticipate its release + the dude in the kimono looks cool
Well, even if they do decide to reboot the anime, it'll be after it's finished probably. They probably won't touch it now that it's on hiatus and the chapter every other month thing. I'd like to see it happen too, though.
I'm pretty sure I've read that Hoshino said herself she would probably allow an anime to be made again *after* she's finished the series.
Hey guys, could somebody please translate what's saying here about dgm? http://jumpsq.shueisha.co.jp/mangasyou/sc2/index14.html thank u!!!
I can translate it if you want but it's just that Hoshino's been selected to judge Jump SQ's "Big Prize" contest to find 10 new "star" mangaka, and she gives her general comments on what she's looking for. She has very high writing standards (her comments focused more on story than on art). Just as I'd expect. :')
It's not about DGM. The page contains the result of a certain manga contest in which Hoshino is judging along with other mangakas and JSQ' editors.
as long as they dont do what inuyasha the final act did and try to summarize and abbreviate the manga into one season , i am assuming that if they do finish the story with an anime they will probably wait until the manga is complete
Unless Hoshino just wants to give us some Lavi tortured, why didn't Sheryl bring Wisely out to read what Bookman had in his record ?
No, that's an interesting thought-- not crazy at all. I suspect that Wisely's mind-reading powers just can't beat a full-fledged Bookman's mental powers. Maybe Wisely's ability would work on Lavi (like Road's did), but he clearly doesn't know about what Sherill is trying to find out.
Cool, another one shot manga to read from Hoshino-sensei (the other one called "Kaiten!" I also loved despite its wacky plot). Is it safe to assume that we will get the new volume of DGM by the end of April or the start of May?
Though I forgot about DGM since January, a dream about Allen and the 14th noah made me to dig today the internets and stumbled on this cozy corner, choke with information I didn't know about DGM and most importantly, about Hoshino's whereabouts and status (seriously, you need a Twitter account or something sensei, we can't wonder about your status forever - I feel like a stalker when I look up your name and surname on Google).
At least I'll rejoice on the idea that the series wasn't cancelled but merely pushed forward due to lack of pages and other editorial stuff I can't fathom.

well, that's two years our time, 3 months in 'verse, but
ya i do find it to be pretty weird that they didn't just have Wisely check out their heads instead of this rather illogical interrogation attempt with Sheryl (tho i dunno about Sheryl trying to keep it a secret that he's holding the Bookman captive, i mean they all seem to be around the ark quite a lot and i feel like it'd be difficult to keep secrets when there's literally people present who can read your mind at any given time); i mean, he was busy i guess, if we can count that brief moment we saw him out in the field with Tyki way back in chapter 211, but really
it's real strange that they wouldn't use him in that way, unless Sheryl's obsessiveness is kind of stopping them from being able to? He might be so far gone that he won't let anyone else have at the two Bookman...at this point, his goal, at the very least, might just be using them as an outlet to take out his rage (and so Hoshino can get whatever pleasure she gets from drawing Lavi in pain) over Road's disappearance and her "relationship" with the Fourteenth, and less about getting information about it?
or it might just have been happening "offscreen" and they're being held hostage as a possible gambit in the war as well, idk :'D
but heh ya wouldn't it just be great if Sensei had a fucking twitter or something ;v; i know she's more of a private person, but it'd be nice to hear how's she's doin and if she's, you know, NOT DYING or anything ;v;
it'll be cool to see this one-shot that she's been working on tho, i'd like to see if her art style has changed at all over the last few months, as it seems to be ever evolving
Not surprisingly, it seems the producers and staff for Valvrave are huge fans of DGM. They kind of gush about how the characters of Hoshino's shounen series are loved by all ages and sexes. :P
Between Valvrave and the Urobutcher's Gargantia, Spring 2013 is the season of epic mech animes. Haven't been this pumped for mech since Code Geass.
Now if only I had access to a computer so I could watch Hoshino's fanboy baby. :c
