A brief update to all of you guys. The truth of why DGM suddenly did not appear in this latest issue (which has been expected by a lot of you):
2ch poster #194 says:
So, another month to wait. Hoshino will definitely be healthier by then. Let's cheer for her recovery and strength. ^_^ Some of you need to remember that she's human.Quote:

Omg, i think that she really needs a new hiatus to recover her health... its sad when we see these breaks and we know that it's about her health again. She needs a rest

I'm actually glad she's taking a longer break.Hope she will recover during that time.
just finished watching fma brotherhood and dgm has ALOT of similarities to it..
eds arm and allens arm
carndinal guy which i similar to the ppl at centeral
how the order is really evil and does random experiments
and how kanda was experimented on and fma had the whole lab 5 thing
even the memebers of the scientist div reminds me of the fma characters
and how the noah are actually nice and by that i mean they just random talk/interact without always fighting just like the homuclus
cross and izumi curtis
link looks like edward
there's many more similarites but thats all i can think of atm
Yeah but that's like comparing digimon to pokemon...
People have noted similarities before(just as they have with several other programs) but DGM and FMA have VERY different themes and tone. It's all in the execution~
Anime and manga as a genre just love their tropes and cliches, its part of its charm, so its not unusual to come across similarities all the time. I can name at least four shows where the main character(or even a side character) has an arm that contains a mysterious power/weapon, just as I can name oodles of shows with a main character with an unusual magic eye.
However I gotta admit that some of your comparisons don't make a lot of sense, mainly Cross and Izumi. Izumi is a devoted housewife and over all firm but nurturing figure. Cross is an unashamed womanizer, bastard and alcoholic who(admittedly) does care for Allen but refuses to acknowledge it until the very last moment.
After typing six class projects in less than 5 hours, I came back in excitement while squealing to this forum only to find out that there's no DGM this month...
There goes my motivation for the final exams...
Well, I know Hoshino is really sick, so I'll try not to hyperventilate... It's better that she takes longer break to recover rather than forcing herself to work and died or lapse into a coma. In my opinion, hiatus(es) is a lot better than an axed or normal ending(s) because you know there's a chance (even if it's slim) the series continues, but with ending, it's more painful because you know that it's the end.
The great thing about the extreme cliffhanger in the last chapter is that the suspense has hold of the fans. So even if there's another break, we're too curious to abandon DGM
Yay! another comparison discussion. Well I have to say, I'm currently reading FMA manga myself and I actually really like it. Though honestly speaking I'm taking sensei42's side on this one because alot of the comparisons people make between these two manga don't strike me as anything critical at all. That's because alot of the comparisons are just based on accessories not uncommon to alot of series having to deal with issues like war and religion. In fact, given these themes and ideals alot of the things compared, example: "The necessary evils adapted by the science devisions in both manga" and the organanization principles like a central office/headquarters is just part of the mix for any manga having to deal with things like war. In fact you could say that if these assets were absent then this would discredit the practicality of the manga. Just think how stupid it would be if the exorcist have been fighting the Earl all these years and never tried to implement organizational measures LOL, they would be non existent. As if they weren't losing hard enough already.

But exactly what's hoshino sensei down wiith? I've been trying to find out but couldn't find anywhere witht he proper info on what she's sick with ._. I hope she recovers quickly but the wait is definitely agonising :/
Anyway, hi! Im new to this website but definitely not new to dgray man~ ive been reading itsince 2007 but stopped reading for a while*guilty* and recently reading it again!
Im supposed to be studying now(its my exams now you see) but i was dying to fiind out hows the updates of d gray man's coming up:P
^ Hmm... actually, I don't exactly know what illness that caused her to take break every two months or so. I heard—from a not so reliable source—that it has something to do with her back bone, which is a common problem for every mangaka considering they bend their back almost every day to draw. I think Hoshino's is connected with the spinal cord. The spinal cord is a very vital organ of the body. I'm not really sure about it either. But if it's the spinal cord, then I can only pray for Hoshino's well-being. Operation is a possible option. But, again, if it's the spinal cord; one slip up, even a nanometer, will cause the person to be paralyzed from the neck down. I don't think her editor, as well as her friends and family, would want to risk for operation—if the problem is the spinal cord.
Nuh, now I've to face exams alone...
and FF .net is dead! My only santcuary, where I wait for DGM's new chapter, is bombarded with multitude waves of horrible junk-fics! My eyes, my eyes!
And, hi! It's nice to see the DGM fandom is growing despite the frequent breaks

It's really sad to hear that she's sick but i'm sure it's nothing serious. Maybe poor Hoshino has a bad immune system.
I was so looking forward to this chapter tho *sniffle*
