well the sad thing is that the aurthor of TLR was able to release additional chapter 2weeks ago and now there is a normal chapter... so many pages and was still able to make it... hoshino does only like 30pages and she still is not able to compleate them... lately she gives BIG panel chapters... so only 2-3char movemnet and it takes 1whole page which normaly could take 2-3panels on a page.... sometimes I think that she should sacrafice a little of the "art" for the sake of making to the dead line... becouse now she has 1additional month... but this 1month has no effect on "more pages" like last time we had to wait a month to get 20 pages or something like that... and this is sad
hoshino could at least leave a note in other magazine that there wont be a chapter this month and she feels sorry for that... fans would understand it and ease their expectatioins.. but there was no note at the end of last chap... and no note in different magazines ;/ now people feel great shock since there is no link stuff or kanda stuff... but all about neah/mana/allen and that was a thing everyone was waiting for.... so no wonder the shock and whining and crying is loud and long after such a turn of events (the most cruel "clifhanger" in existance)
Those "she doesn't care anymore" comments are ticking me off, to be honest. Hoshino cares very very very much about her manga. Try reading her interviews.
Anyway. The previous chapter said there wouldn't be a break so it's obviously not according to schedule. I hope she didn't overtax herself again or something like that.
Arghhh.... cruel D:
Last chapter was so good, and that cliffhanger!
I doubt Hoshino has just stopped caring about Dgm.
The chapters are written well it doesn't seem like someone with dying motivation is writing them at all. >:0
Hopefully it isn't health issues. The last chapter was such a cliff hanger ;3;
I think the sock is not about we don't have dgm this month, its about how great was the cliffhanger and nobody can wait anymore xD anyway, hope is just a 'month off' and next month will be a great one!
I liked so many of the recent posts that my fingers went numb I'm really happy that so many people believe in this series just as much as I do if not more.
I think the main reason for D.Gray-man's sudden break is there are just too many series in SQ right now. SQ is having new series rush since beginning of 2012 and there aren't many series that ended to make space for new series. Furthermore, SQ just started another two new series (Rurouni Kenshin and Senyuu); so, some series have to take one month break to make room and I think D.Gray-man was decided to be one of them.
Well, this was really sad news I do hope Hoshino is okay
My first thought about the hiatus is that... as we know very well by now, Hoshino is a perfectionist; which is both a blessing and a curse for her. After the care she put into last chapter, and especially the last page, I got a feeling that we're going to step into an important arch/flashback that Hoshino has thought A LOT about. She wants to convey everything she's had in her head for years, she's probably drawing and redrawing in search of the perfect expressions... and then she couldn't make it until deadline, with all the other side-projects and all. At least that's what I'd like to believe, instead of thinking that she's lazy or sick. Next month will surely give us awesomeness like no other *foreeeever optimistic* Still, sad news ;_;
Off-topic - I'm going to be completely offline for a week now (not even lurking! ). I'm going on a sail ship across the North Sea with my class x'D So if I don't go down Titanic-style, see you guys later~
No D.Gray-Man *heart breaks*
Oh well as a D.Gray-Man fan one quickly gets used to the hiatuses rather quickly and, imho, i want a good chapter with a break rather than one that is only 17 or 18 pages long. I just hope that Hoshino is ok and that she cranks out an uber-good chappy next month.

I'm just going to tell myself that the longer I wait, the more flashback-awesomeness will be in the next chapter (hopefully).

However, it looks like it is confirmed that DGM's sudden absent was caused by Hoshino's sudden sickness.
