    Hoshino's Instagram Account and Discussion Thread

    EDIT: SPOILER ALERT For Chapter 219+
    THIS THREAD MAY CONTAIN POTENTIAL SPOILERS
    due to the nature of the pictures.


    Let's discuss!

    Although there isn't an offical announcement yet, it looks like there will definitely be a new D. Gray-man chapter coming soon. In the meantime, let's talk about the beautiful drawings on her account. I've really missed her style!

    For those who haven't seen it yet:
    http://instagram.com/hoshino1000

    I'm really happy that there is now a way to communicate with Hoshino-sensei, that's she's using social media, and interacting with her fans. Although it says that she doesn't read English well, I think it's still awesome that there is now a way to leave comments for Hoshino-sensei. For years, she had essentially dissappeared, and today I found that that she even had been personally responding to her fans! -->http://instagram.com/p/t9q62Vif7F/?modal=true xD

    I really love all the pictures on her instagram.

    To start:

    I'm just so happy Hoshino-sensei is okay and there is new D. gray-man content coming!

    PS. A HUGE Thank you to Ebti for making this discovering in the Hiatus Thread! <3

    Re: HOSHINO SENSEI IS BACK!/INSTAGRAM ACCOUNT

    I'm gonna love the new Allen look if he keeps it in a ponytail all the time XD I just hope we won't see him with a gloomy face like that all the time :|

    Actually I wanted to ask everyone,

    anyone thinks they know what Allen's holding? My imagination sucks Did Allen have some jewelry?

    Non-chan, I added a spoiler alert at the top. Let me know if that works! ^^ Also, is it okay to discuss the possible spoiler pics here, or should we do it in the spoiler thread ?

    OH! I noticed that strange nub too. I thought at first that it was the tracking/electrocuting bracelet Johnny put on Allen, but you can see tiny legs at the botton of the nub. I'm not too sure either what it is. It is really hard to imagine. ^^;

    I also thought that panel looks like Nea instead of Allen! If you look at the corner panel, where there are blue lines, it looks like Allen/Nea just finished deactivating the left hand, and at the bottom he's making a fist after it turned back into a hand. All just guesses though. :P

    http://instagram.com/p/tfegV8Cf_U/?modal=true
    I noticed that she has her cat's profile as her phone bg pic! I do that with my dog's picture too. :3 She must really love her cat. This is the same cat Koro/Coro that's mentioned in the Vol 22 intro/cover, right? Same age as the DGM series? ? He is really cute x3
    I wish it was possible to tilt this picture to get a better look at the panels. I'm so curious. The upper panel, where maybe Allen is taking a step, looks epic. I'm confused as to how/why Lavi is there. Maybe Allen/Nea is thinking about Lavi and the chapter ends withi him deciding to look for him? Maybe the next arc is a save-Lavi-arc/backstory arc?

    I think it's really cool to see the images pre-text bubble. The quality of her drawings is so good. <3
    What do you guys think? ^o^?

    Re: HOSHINO SENSEI IS BACK!/INSTAGRAM ACCOUNT

    I love the redesign on Allen. I love his outfit and he looks so aged up. I guess he was definitely being aged up by the last chapters of the manga too though. I actually like the long hair too. Maybe I am just glad to have him back ha ha. I would love a save Lavi arc soon too though I am not sure how to resolve it to that point in one chapter. Someone else made the good point that she could be working on up to a year's worth of chapters right now so all of these panels may not be from Ch 219 necessarily.

    Ah you're right! I didn't notice it until now but Allen does look a lot older now. I couldn't put my finger on it, but he's being looking really different. I'm glad to have him and the DGM world back too haha. It's like the stopped time is moving again. *glee* And wow a possible year-worth of chapters... If that's the case, is it too much to ask for weekly releases? x3 I agree that some of the pictures she posted might be much further along than Ch. 219. At the same time, usually whenever she returns from hiatus, I remember getting a lot of content. So maybe a double chapter? ?

    Re: HOSHINO SENSEI IS BACK!/INSTAGRAM ACCOUNT

    Btw, was it common knowledge that Hoshino draws with a graphic tablet? I never noticed it while reading manga. However it is I approve, I wonder if it's better for her drawing hand/body. I imagine it should be faster as well..?

    I have always doubted it ever since the begining of Searching for A.W arc, as the lines looked like they were done digitally. My suspicion increased when I saw her art for Valvrave box set and DGM volumn 24 and everything is confirmed now...I just didn't expect an actual Cintiq 13HD (base price $999). I thought it was a Bamboo or Intuous, as I believed I saw it in a photo of her studio

    The speed still heavily depends on the artist's ability and mind, however. But if Hoshino wants to fix something, she doesn't have to re-draw entire page.

    Re: HOSHINO SENSEI IS BACK!/INSTAGRAM ACCOUNT

    I found out about Hoshino's Instagram through the JP blogger's site. I was translating parts of it bit by bit, but some of the sentences made me a little confused until I clicked the link and ta-dah! Hoshino's 10th anniversary picture appeared before me that was posted just one day ago. My jaw dropped. Then, I thought to myself that this is great. We can show her Instagram to just about any doubter/rumor spreader, who thought Hoshino died or was fired from Jump. I posted a comment on her Instagram. This is great. A much easier way to get in touch with her. At least, she's received many fan letters so that's wonderful. She's been posting for two weeks now? Oki doki.

    Very interesting speculation, Chloesong. I'm going to only theorize a little bit off of the images that may not be all from 219. However...,

    Hope is on the horizon for 219! Hooope....
