Well since Hoshino-sensei once stated that David Beckham looks hot (or rather good....) and said that he/she can perfectly identify with Miranda, the assumption that Hoshino-sensei is female is acceptable. It's not 100% sure though, moreover it's just what I am thinking.
Apparently, that's just what everyone thinks - and there's really no evidence that she isn't female, either. Although... D.Gray-Man does have a very, ah, feminine style. I mean, pretty much every young man is good-looking and/or beautiful. ^_^ And, of course, the Tiki thing is just kind of obvious. Eheh...
...I want to order this volume so badly. >_> Someone showed me a picture of the inside cover, though, and it's scary!!!
The inside cover? I hope someone can scan and post it here. Then, he/she can scan the whole cover, too. need a bigger version of it *_*.
The inside cover has Allen playing poker with Tyki, Lavi, and Relo stripped down to their underwear(yes, Relo too...) with Rhode looking over Allen's shoulder while both of them are laughing loudly in the background. Tyki seems to be doing better than Lavi, he still has his socks, though Relo looks a bit mortified. And it seems that Hoshino-san has found someone who is as cute as her cat, it seems that she now has a nephew or niece(too lazy to look up the word in a dictionary to find out which...). She also says that he/she is really heavy.
And it's very likely Hoshino is a girl, Katsura is a girl's name, I believe.
There are a few pictures of Tyki and Jasdebi too and omake, though the kanji is too hard for me to read.
Tiki and Lavi are also wearing bunny ears, aren't they? Must've been Road's idea...
hoshino is female. i read from a blog that the blog writer met hoshino and got hoshino's autograph. the person pretty much confirmed/was certain that hoshino is female (not all manga writers are males you know ^^)
well for some unusual reason hoshino's gender has been an internet debate for a while. but i also have heard more evidence of being female than male
I really prefer Hoshino being a female.
Now you know, we have many females drawing good shonens like D.Gray-Man, FMA, Peacemaker, Erementar Gerad...
Here is a MQ cover of volume 12 I have found:
