Well I found this announcement on the "Tim's Tail" fanblog, and it's dated Monday March 4th. I'm not familiar with the blog yet so I can't say for sure if it's accurate but it looks legit so far. (I'll look further into it soon.)
Sorry I'm not feeling well so I might have small errors in my translation. With the exception of the bold portion, I think the gist is there though:And this time, in relation to the series' absence, an announcement page was created. (P678). It reads as follows:Quote:Source: http://kuriparu44.blog.fc2.com/blog-entry-380.htmlQuote:
"DGM will be on hiatus for the time being during Hoshino-sensei's recuperation from illness. Please look forward to the continuation! We deeply apologize for the worry and inconvenience to our readers. The date of return from hiatus has not been decided. Please watch for an announcement regarding DGM's return in the pages of upcoming issues.
In addition, a work that Hoshino-sensei has been working on since last year will appear in a special edition of "Weekly Young Jump;" "Miracle Jump" at the end of April. We hope you'll look forward to it. From now on, we humbly request your continued support.**
Jump SQ Editorial Dep't."
**At first I thought this said that it would be "published with assistance." Now I'm not sure...

Now I'm confused over the Young Jump thing again. Miracle Jump is the revamped version of Monthly Young Jump, which started as a special issue of Weekly Young Jump. So now I'm not sure if it's one or two oneshots that will be posted soon...wtf
Ohhh. I'd heard of "Miracle Jump" but didn't hear of "Young Jump." I think I misread that then. Thanks, xi0! I'll edit above.
Oh yeah, I even missed part of what was there. Sorry I have a headache and I'm tired so not the best time for me to be translating stuff. ^_^;

Oh really? A while back I read about MJ on Wikipedia (yes, I know it's not the best source) and if they mentioned YJ I forgot it, but I do remember they said that MJ started out being aimed toward a specific demographic but is now meant to be non-specific to any demographic, containing manga for people of all ages and either sex. It said part of the reason is because so many smaller mangaka are missing out on serialization and they wanted to publish more of their work.
Wait... is this project appearing on Miracle Jump or Young Jump???? I'm confused O_O
What? So in the end she was ill but still took time for the one-shot and the character design of that anime about mechas? Oh well, I'm starting to wonder if she's doing different things mostly because she has DGM plot-block, and not because she needs $. Sometimes working on different projects makes you to return to older ones with better ideas and fuel for scribbling something good for long time. Hope our patience gets rewarded with a chapter with plenty of information to fill those gaps that torment DGM "theorymakers" (I want my fill of information about akuma and innocence evolution soon
and if there gonna be more Madoka winks from Jasdevi).
