Plagarism?[edit]

I've been looking 'round the wide world of the internet for several hours now, and i've read what i'm interpreting to be rumors of Plagarism in this manga (some time ago, but even so, it might deserve mention) stemming from characters created by Takeshi Obata, Mangaka of Death Note (among others). i've not been able to find a solid source, though several forums have posts on it that vary from 'this is BS' to 'ZOMFG how could she [the writer]??'. if anyone can dig anything up, or even wants to write a little blurb somewhere about it, i'd deeply appreciate it. that or just disprove the damn thing, that'd work too. 143.60.134.87 (talk) 06:21, 27 April 2010 (UTC) (Masterofmymind, Tryntu, Ekian are my most common hooks.)

Nothing is no longer original in the field of anime/manga, so really any new shonen mangaka artist can be accused of unoriginality, but plagiarism is another thing. The story would have to follow word for word, the plot would have to be the same and use the same references seen in the series it's being accused of. We cannot add in original research, so unless there's a source on it, then there is no chance it will make it here without getting reverted. On the other hand, people already reviewed the series in the reception that says similar to what these people have said but still contain positive review. So you can show that to who ever says this.Bread Ninja (talk) 15:45, 28 April 2010 (UTC)

So what happened?[edit]

Why hasn't a new chapter been released since Dec. 2012? Did the artist die? If he did don't you think a remark here should be added? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 109.160.174.166 (talk) 14:53, 4 August 2013 (UTC)

The author is okay. She designed the characters from Valvrave and also wrote a one-shot. In 2009 Hoshino mentioned she had an injure so my guess is that she was injured again or she just needed a rest.Tintor2 (talk) 15:32, 4 August 2013 (UTC)

Cancellation[edit]

This series cannot be considering "Ongoing (hiatus)" because there is no official hiatus. It was confirmed that the magazine is dropped the series due to the author's poor health, no 'temporarily dropped' comments or anything of that nature. Thus, it cannot be considered "ongoing" because it has nothing to 'go on.' That would also defeat the purpose of the words "Original Run" used to describe it's length. Unless a magazine in the future of Japanese publishing takes on her series, it cannot be considered ongoing or on hiatus. IMustang (talk) 08:21, 12 November 2013 (UTC)

Did the newest volume confirm that? We need to source that.Tintor2 (talk) 14:12, 12 November 2013 (UTC)
It was confirmed in the magazine itself, which was translated online. I included the source when I initially updated the page. http://dgray-man-sj.deviantart.com/journal/Important-news-regarding-the-DGM-Manga-357612962 IMustang (talk) 19:40, 12 November 2013 (UTC)
Devianart can't be used as a source. The writer made it clear he can't be reliable. It needs the magazine itself or a commonly reliable one.Tintor2 (talk) 19:53, 12 November 2013 (UTC)

August 5, 2014 hasn't happened yet.[edit]

A portion of the article reads:

As of August 5, 2014, Viz Media has released the twenty four volumes in the United States.

However, at the time I am reading and posting this, it is March 23, 2014, and that date is approximately 4.5 months into the future. Clarification requested. --JCipriani (talk) 05:16, 23 March 2014 (UTC)

It probably meant "2013". its a common typo, but just to be sure, check the List of D.Gray-man chapters. Lucia Black (talk) 05:23, 23 March 2014 (UTC)
Hm; that list also shows August 5, 2014 for the English release of volume 24. Amazon lists that date as well.. So either "as of... has released" was a typo, or whoever wrote that was just thinking ahead. I don't see any reason to change it. The grammar will be correct eventually, although it runs the risk of being incorrect information if that release date is missed. --JCipriani (talk) 04:31, 24 March 2014 (UTC)
