D.Gray-Man Manga Resumes From Hiatus
posted on by Alex Mateo
Next year's February issue of Shueisha's Jump Square magazine revealed on Saturday that Katsura Hoshino's D.Gray-man manga will resume in the winter 2017 issue of Jump Square Crown magazine on January 20, after taking a brief hiatus in October's autumn issue. The autumn issue didn't state at the time if Hoshino would resume the manga in the winter issue.
Hoshino originally launched her D.Gray-man manga in Weekly Shonen Jump magazine in 2004, but the manga went on hiatus numerous times due to the author's health. The series then resumed in Jump Square magazine in 2009. More recently the series went on hiatus again in 2013, but resumed in the new Jump Square Crown quarterly magazine when the magazine launched in July 2015. Shueisha published the manga's 25th volume on June 3; the company had published the 24th volume in November 2013. The manga has more than 22.5 million copies in print.
Viz Media is releasing the manga series in English, and it released the 24th manga volume in August 2014.
The manga inspired a 103-episode television anime series that aired from 2006-2008. Funimation released the first half of the anime on Blu-ray Disc and DVD in North America, and recently licensed the second half of the anime. The manga also inspired a new 13-episode television anime titled D.Gray-man Hallow, which premiered on July 4. Funimation streamed the series with English subtitles and an English broadcast dub.
