As for immediate answers right now....

The anime stopped for several reasons:

-it caught up to the manga and the show's ratings just weren't high enough to continue on with anime-only arcs (like what they do with Bleach with the Bountou arcs, etc. when it catches up to the manga) to wait for more material from the mangaka, especially due to the hiatus she needed to take for health reasons.

-as for the seiyuu, she is fine now and has taken rolls since D. Gray-man in shows like Darker Than Black (both seasons), Natsume Yuujincho (both seasons), and most recently in Durarara!! (as Yagiri Namie).

Status on the manga:

The manga went on hiatus three times because the mangaka once was ill with norovirus, then had a neck injury, then the last time a hand injury. It started back again as a seasonal publication in August in the seasonal Akamaru Jump, but as of November 4, 2009 it has resumed publication in Jump Square, the monthly publication for Weekly Shounen Jump. So fans can definitely take it as a good sign that the manga has gone from hiatus, to only a seasonal publication, and is now in monthly publication.

Wll the anime return anytime soon?

ANSWER: NO. The original anime covers chapters 1 - 155 of the manga (chapter 155 is half way through the 16th tankoban). Since the ending of the anime, 40 more chapters have been released (4 1/2 volumes of tankoban worth of material). That just isn't enough material to start up the anime again any time in the near future (at least several years), and it isn't as if the studio is desperate to continue it anyway since it simply didn't get the ratings that other long-running shows like Bleach and Naruto receive. As for concerns over Allen's seiyuu, she is doing fine and has taken on many rolls since D. Gray-man... one of her more recent rolls is in Durarara!! .

The bottom line is that the ratings for D. Gray-man were generally poor and due to the slow publication of the manga, there just isn't enough material to continue the anime even if they wanted to.

not really but the anime issue, kind of similar.
in the U.S., D. Gray-man is licensed by VIZ Media and Rave Master was licensed by TOKYOPOP but since Rave Master was under Kodansha in Japan, TOKYOPOP announced that they wouldn't complete releasing the series as their license with Kodansha expired.
it's completely different since VIZ Media always re-release their earlier volumes of a manga. so now, the rest of the manga for Rave Master is published by Del Rey.
