So much wild speculation with the recent super-short dgm chapter.
Also I’m groggy and congested so my patience is nil. Here’s a rant if you just wanna scroll on past.
There are very few things fans /actually/ concretely know and this is by merit of Hoshino being incredibly private.
-Hoshino’s health is a running issue and every so often she requires time off to recover. She also had a wrist injury. General public does not know specifics.
- DGM bounced around Jump magazines like nobody’s business. This suggests organizational issues possibly between demographic or scheduling rather than any kind of ownership legal battle. Again the general public does not know specifics.
-Hallow would have kept her quite busy, but the reason for the one issue break has not been confirmed. General public does not know specifics.
-Hoshino’s Insta was very much public, and it was lovely to have her sharing things! She decided to shut it down after expressing her disappointment in a promotional poster for Hallow that she did not approve as well has her stated discomfort over leaked images. Beyond Hoshino’s own words we don’t know anything that would have went on behind the scenes.
-I have seen zero confirmation or sources stating that this most recent chapter, and others previously, was meant to be part of some mega chapter. You know my line here by now blah blah general public. As much as I would love for it to be true that a mega chapter was on the table, I feel like spreading word about this supposed extra long chapter is just setting people up for a bad reaction if it’s not the case.
The one thing I vehemently agree with is “Chill out and give Hoshino a break”. 13 years this manga has been going. 13 years of so many breaks and speculation. With Hallow there’s been, from what I’ve seen, a huge boost in interest. Hoshino has worked incredibly hard as much as she can for 13 years.
Spreading rumors about her health, business involvement, and her intent just feels like doing her a disservice.
I’m just /frustrated/, like wondering and airing questions is one thing…but spreading things as facts with no source just seems to confuse and frustrate people even more - especially when things don’t turn out as predicted.
I just wanna be super stoked for a full-sized chapter in April, and keep stalking a release date for that gorgeous Lavi statuette that was announced.
Can we just go back to excited for anything new that we got rather than having to figure out a reason behind everything? Plz?
