Still no new chapter but Volume 24 is scheduled for release in America during August 2014 and available on Amazon for pre-order:…
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.

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.

No one said it was cancelled. It's on hiatus. We're well aware of that.
Character designs and one shot were drawn before she went on hiatus, though...

yaeh that's right getting a bit worried over here. Hope she gets better soon and continue this wonderful manga. I'm just hoping it doesn't turn out like Beet the Vandel Buster.....

P.S. I was just wrote this because apparently a lot of people don't read everything on the post.

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.

At this point, Half-Life 3 seems a lot more likely.

It's funny how I thought I will read something new about the mangas chapter 219, but all I read was what I already knew... And listening to Musician doesn't bloody help. I NEED THECHAPTER MAN, CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT IT.

(Wow this comment had a big emotional(personality) change in mere seconds...)

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.

Yeah I understand.
