I believe the November 2008 hiatus was due to her bad back. She has also said in interviews that she has had problems with her wrists. I think she had surgery done on her wrists though. She didn't go on hiatus at all during 2010, so it certainly helped.
I still think she just overworked and got a cold or flu.
She probably made at least 5 color pages for the Character Book, she redrew pages for volume 22, there is the one-shot (40-50 pages)...
Maybe she even got sick with the flu.
I think that Hoshino could be sick, but not too dangerous. I agree with asclepius, a lot of work + flu = no chapter this month. 2010 was a year with all the chapters, all the changes in the volumes, and color pages. She's strong, because, she could just let her manga on hiatus since 2009 and wait to be completly good but, she change her weekly manga to mensal just for US, fans. I'm sure that she is ok now and working pretty hard =))
Thanks Naomidee!! I'm sure DGM fans are the best, I have been reading you guys for the last 2 years n_nU Now I'm ready to join the discussions *0*Originally Posted by Naomidee
You did a really good job elystia *-*!!!!Originally Posted by elystia
And I bet Hoshino loves the purple color XD She uses it a lot!
A little off topic: Trinity Blood started with short novels and was made into manga that is still running. The one who died was actually Sunao Yoshida, the author of the novels ^^ and his friend Kentaro Yasui finished them.Originally Posted by Zero Phoenix
Let's hope she's just ill because of all her recent work cuz I don't want to think she's having problems with her wrist again ._.U
someone could post the topic of dgm on 2ch? )
(Thanks for the lovely welcomes, everyone <3)
Just thought it was worth drawing attention to the Volume 23 preview included in Volume 22. Possible hints at things to come? (I'll take what little I can get)
Large black text says "Next volume, Allen has left the order--a new journey begins...!!"
Next to Link it says "As for Link's fate...?" "And...?" next to the panel of Johnny asking "Why did things turn out this way?"
No mention of Lavi or Bookman, though. I sort of figured she'd be launching into their story from here, but it looks like maybe she's going to tell us what the heck is going on with Link first? If it's in the preview for #23, that means it'll be in the next 5-6 chapters.
Is it July yet?

i hope its not about link or johnny i honestly dont care about those characters.
btw when is all the dgm stuff coming out? chapter, art book, one shot...and other goods?
I think we're going to have some Lavi sprinkles in there too. But if she didn't specifically mention him in the preview, then it won't be anything big. I would love love love to see more of Link, since he'll also be leaving the Order now too. Allen and Link would make an amazing team!
Thank you for all of the info posted, you guys. We still have a ways to go so this helps.
I don't think that just because he's not on the preview, he'll don1t apear too much. It's not Hoshino who does the preview, is the editorial i think. So, Lavi could be the main character of the new arc =))
I'm hoping she manages to balance it out. I'm dying to know what's going on with Link, but the Bookman backstory (and all the Fourteenth information that will probably go along with it) is long overdue too. Another 10-15 chapter long arc focusing on just one or the other would be painful.
