About the April SQ CROWN
I see people have noticed the SQ CROWN preview posted by Yonkou Productions the other day doesn’t include any mention of DGM.
I wasn’t gonna say anything about it yet, since we’re still two weeks out from the magazine’s release, but since people are talking now…
As I’ve said before, I honestly don’t think we should believe anything Shueisha / Jump says about DGM until it actually comes to pass. Because, since roughly last August, everything they promised about DGM has been a lie. Literally, everything. The Gray Log is still indefinitely postponed (and we don’t know anything about the new art book Hoshino was working on). The DGM Hallow blu-rays are canceled. And so on, and so forth…
So, really, we shouldn’t expect a new chapter in two weeks, even though the last CROWN issue made an apparent promise that there’d be some big DGM chapter in April, and we’d finally get all the answers to our burning questions.
Personally, I think it’s best to err on the side of caution and expect nothing. Then, if there miraculously is a chapter, we can all be pleasantly surprised.
At this point, I’m kinda bummed watching everyone expect something great every time there’s a CROWN release, only to get nothing (or, you know, 7 pages, which is too close to 0 for comfort).
I’d recommend we all be cautious about getting too hyped up over a potential chapter, given the recent string of disappointments.
In a week or so, the Jump website will likely post the cover and TOC for the April CROWN, and then we’ll know for sure whether or not they’ve let us down again. But, like I said, it’s not looking good, and it hasn’t for a long time, so don’t get too excited yet. I hate watching you all get upset. :(
If it turns out that there is a new DGM chapter on the 14th, then awesome. We’ll have a huge party and ten thousand cool edits and tons of new art, and it’ll be great!
If not…well…what else is new? :/
