Update-03/11/2014
Thanks to DGray-Man101 and mangahelpers, we've been noticed that Hoshino might have an Instagram account.
We don't have a way to verify that but the pictures posting on it being mirrors of her style and the occasional picture of a cat looking a lot like Koro, Hoshino's beloved cat.

Judging by the material posted on it, Hoshino seems to be working on a new chapter. And although there is no actual release information, it seems like we could all silently celebrate just a little. We don't want to jinx it. ~

It also seems to include some new character design on Allen's part. But yeah, worth taking a look, I suppose.
And everyone who ever dreamed of seeing Lavi shirtless gets a treat on the Halloween picture.

But let me repeat: It is NOT verified that this is the actual Hoshino's instagram.

Also, if anyone wants to know what the first picture says (there's also a translation on mangahelpers' forum... This one is one I did, and I'm hardly fluent in Japanese):

Allen:  ファンの皆さんから10周年のお祝いメッセージがこんなに....
The messages from all fans for the 10th anniversary celebration were so... //sob
ありがとうございます
Thank you very much!
ほら神田もお礼いってくださいよ
Look, Kanda, you say "thank you" as well!
人気投票ナンバーワンキャラでしょ
You were the Number One Character in the last character voting, weren't you?
Kanda: 知らねーし
Dunno about that-
Allen:はやく
HURRY UP
あーーー…
a----
こんな漫画ですまん
Sorry for this manga.


--------------------------
Still no new chapter but Volume 24 is scheduled for release in America during August 2014 and available on Amazon for pre-order:
www.amazon.com/D-Gray-man-Vol-…
No word yet about when Glénat will pick it up for the French/Spanish translation (no word about the 3rd Reverse novel either).


--------------------------------
Happy birthday, Hiatus. :|
Now stop existing, Hiatus.
/no sense of humor

We've been waiting for a year now, but keep strong, DGM fandom. We can do this~ Let's make Hoshino proud once she resumes her work.


Edit:Thanks to Dark-Merchant I was informed that something's stirring in Japan, although I'm not certain about what is going on in DGM's country of origin. Although there is no notice of a new chapter any time soon, MangaHelper's DGM Hang-out thread mentioned that Shueisha, the company that publishes DGM in Japan, lists the release of volume 24 as being November 1st (2013年11月1日). This news is fairly reliable as it is the official site. At least this means that DGM is not entirely cancelled, even if it's not a new chapter. People have been mentioning that Hoshino might be waiting for the 10th anniversary of the series, but who knows... maybe there will be a chapter before that.

Also, for SQ's 45th anniversary, they're releasing a bunch of figures and our white haired protagonist is included:

Edit: Thanks to heyhey00's link, it seems there is no hard evidence that DGM is cancelled for good, but rather on hiatus until further notice (aka Hoshino gets better again).

EDIT #2: Thank you Mudkipblader, I really need to research before posting. I DID look into things, but apparently I totally missed this. I apologize to everyone - I would try to translate the page myself, but I can't quite make out the page because of the quality. However, just as Mudkipblader said, there will be another hiatus, so stay strong.

Hey all, darkotter here. I know, it's been a long time since you've heard from me. I've been in and out. But this journal isn't about me. This journal is about something rather serious in regards to our fandom.

I'm sure everyone has been wondering where the next chapter of D.Gray-Man is. I mean, Chapter 218 was posted in December, and Hoshino doesn't normally make us wait three months. However, I've just come across some disturbing news, written in this article below.


"Due to Ms. Hoshino’s Progressing Illness, D.gray- Man Has been canceled in the monthly manga Magazine, Jump Square.
Both Shueisha and Ms. Hoshino, Thank us the fan’s for sticking by with the manga for these past years…
Let Us wish and hope Ms. Hoshino will get better.
As for the continuation of D.GM, It will have to be when Ms. Hoshino recovers, And find a new company to publish her work.
"

So, this is why we haven't gotten a chapter. I don't know what Ms. Hoshino's illness is, it hasn't been released. The fact that it has been removed from Jump Square brings me great sorrow and worry. But all we can really do is send our best wishes to Hoshino Katsura, in hopes that she will recover quickly and will be able to gift us with her wonderful manga.

Keep our wonderful mangaka in your thoughts, fellow fans. Let's get through this haitus - however long it takes.
- darkotter

She is better. We are like 99,9% certain that Hoshino is the owner of the instagram. And she's drawing and answering questions of the fans that follow her (like what program she uses for her manga panels). :3 There are probably reasons why she's not publishing her stories right now (probably from her superiors).

I'm not sure what it is, but judging by the fact that I can only seem to find it on vietnamese blogs, and is just one page. It's probably fanart. Maybe they borrowed the Allen from other Hoshino panels, but the Lavi seems a bit off from Hoshino's usual style. Also the shadow doesn't look as clean as it should, and his arm looks a bit off. But yeah, I wouldn't pay too much attention to it if I were you.

We all hope she gets better soon. :3 Yeah, not everyone reads everything. But not everyone reads the comments on the last page either. Back when this journal was posted the first time, it was still "DGM might be cancelled for good" and that's why the first reactions/comments might seem a bit panicky.

Thank you for having this all in one post! It had been a while since I'd checked for an update, so I actually didn't know it had been canceled from the magazine. Ugggghhh so sad :( I keep hoping when I check I'll get good news. Does anyone know what her illness is? I've seen so many different things said that at this point I'm just confused.

We're using this journal as a way to communicate news regarding the evolution of new material. But since nothing has happened for a while, nothing new is in it. Just most of what information (that has been sourced and referenced) is going around the internet.

Just one question: do you think D Gray man's story is near it's end? (I mean, Allen is so close of turning into the 14th!)
Reply
:iconkoto-wari:
Koto-wari Featured By Owner Aug 15, 2014
We have no idea how long DGM will continue to run. Everyone kind of feels like it is reaching the climax of its story, since the secrets regarding Allen's past are kind of falling into place, and being very slowly revealed. But no one knows for sure what Hoshino is going to do with her story. She might have plenty of ideas after this arc.
