hello!! after seeing hoshino’s recent post on instagram i felt that we as a fandom should do something to show support and love for her between now and the release. here’s how this will work:

on tumblr, twitter, and instagram, i want as many of you as possible to post something with the tag #keepwalkinghoshinosensei, and say how you got into d.gray-man, how long you’ve been into it, and what it means to you, as well as a message of love and support for hoshino from all of us. you can draw art for her if you’d like as well.

as well as this, leave a message on hoshino’s most recent post on instagram using the tag and give her support and love and tell her we’re all proud of her for coming this far and we’ll be supportive no matter how many updates we get. even if you’re disappointed that dgm will be released quarterly, do not include that in your message.

there’s no set deadline or goal for this. between now and the 17th, and beyond that, if we keep posting support across these three sites i hope hoshino will see our support, and that’s all i’m aiming for with this tbh.

please post on instagram as well as tumblr. hoshino will highly unlikely see our supportive messages otherwise. but since the fandom is very active on here i felt a starter post would be better on this site than twitter/ig. posting on tumblr is simply to signal boost the tag and get it popular, instagram is where we mainly need to post stuff.

so yea, no idea how big this will turn out but if we can get enough people involved so that hoshino can see it that’d be great!! thank you ♥

Thank you for many warm messages.

Like the official announcement said, D.Gray-man will resume serialization in CROWN.

There are probably many who are disappointed because of the quarterly release, but this is the enviroment where the present me can properly continue drawing D.Gray-man, I’m very grateful to the editorial department who assisted me for that to be able to happen.

I honestly didn’t think I’d receive this many messages from everyone the past days, so I spent my time reading them one by one with feelings of happiness and regret*.

I’m sorry for never saying anything.
But from now on as well, please excuse me for not saying anything. This is the best way I can continue not causing trouble for my supervisor and the editorial department who allowed me to post on instagram.

The words from you are always encouragement to me. Thank you.

From Hoshino Katsura

*or guilt, like feeling sorry for those who weren’t happy about the quarterly releases


So what’s the deal with #ART03?

So here’s the deal faithful followers. I’ve had to make a few changes to my Quarterly boxes. Instead of $50, they’re now $30. Because of the price cut I have decided to only focus on one artist per box. 

Since I’ve received quite a few requests to include my Polaroid photography in future shipments I’ve decided the next box will revolve around a beautiful hardcover 38 page Photo book of all of my most popular Polaroids I’ve shot. It will be designed and printed by our friends at Social Print Studio.

To be clear, I’ve never released any of my photos for sale anywhere before besides a physical show I had back in January 2012 in San Francisco.

If this is something you are interested in do not hesitate to get my next Quarterly box because there are limited quantities and it will sell out quick. 

There are two options. You can simply buy ONLY the next box. Or you may do a continuous subscription in which you will receive a different artist every 3 months.

Also, one lucky subscriber will receive a free POLAROID CAMERA and a pack of IMPOSSIBLE FILM in addition to their subscription!

Here, Here and Here.

Next box ships out in August

In Paris, a Place for Coffee, Cycling and Creating a Niche Style Quarterly

On a recent Thursday morning in Paris, Kévin Reza cracked a half smile and readied himself for the camera; his urban cycle-wear snug against his lean, muscular frame. The 26-year old professional road cyclist wasn’t posing for a sports magazine but rather for the next issue of Steel magazine, a lifestyle and urban cycling quarterly.
