Don't like it. The diamond background is kinda cool cos it's how they used to be, but kinda gay cos it makes it feel outdated.
I hope the colours are just not showing up well in this scan, cos they're so washed out it's ridiculous. Also, way to ruin the cover with not only a kind of annoying minor character, but also a character who we don't even get introduced to until halfway through this volume. And not only that, he's supposed to be a secret identity.
But what annoys me even MORE is that this was finally a chance to give L4 an awesome cover after dropping the ball with his first appearance. Aaand he's missed it again.

I agree that the colours are washed out. It's different from the bright colours of some previous colours, but this has the colouring of the last few DGM colour pages - and they didn't look that great. In fact, I think the last three have been lacking in that area. (The last one I'd say was "good" was back in 121. Everything since has had these faded colours.)
Meh, I knew this'd be a Timothy cover. I'm sick of the "every character gets a cover" way of doing things, but he was the main character of the arc, Link had his cover for 17, and... so he gets it. I'd have loved to see more characters on it to break the cycle, but this was still predictable.
There's probably a reason the level 4 wasn't on it, though. =P (Maybe volume 19? It was associated more with Allen and Kanda, and their chapter is in the next volume. Of course, we might get Kanda's flowers for that instead... or Crow... because they need a cover, don't they! >_>)

The way I figure it, this volume's prob gonna end with the destruction of the L4. And I know theis was the Timothy/G arc, but it's still a fairly rubbish cover. I would have preferred a G cover since showing the identity of the guy they spend the first half of the volume looking for is kinda rubbish, and Tim's design is pretty boring, too.

I def. wanted a crow cover :P, those guys are badass! And just what does kanda have to do with them... By the way is anybody going to Otakon in baltimore this year?

Donīt worry, the colors are definitly faded, i just saw another minisized pic of the cover and the colors are much more accentuated just like every other DGM cover.
But yeah, nothing special on the design department, although i do like Timothy innocence color scheme and pose.
And Hoshino said in the volume commentary that she plans to return this summer. So new volume and confirmation of her return. Good news all around.

Well, waddya know. D. Grayman is coming back. And in a fashion thatīs alsmot as fabulous as the Crow guys.
This just in from Ritual Scan Forge, which in turn got it from 2 chan.
Itīs going to debut on Shonen jump special summer edition, Akamaru jump in august, with cover, color page and 50 pages. The chapter will reveal the secrte behind Kandaīs birth and the power of the 3rd exorcist, whatever that means.
Nice. Time to get high expectations Digital.

Isnīt Akamaru Jump a special summer edition? The man is bound to return to WSJ, they probably made this special chapter since Hoshino wanted to come back with a bang and a 50 page chapter would be too big for WSJ.
By the way, do you go to other forums, Digital? The place is kinda dead and itīs nice discussing with you.
