Dr. Slump manga coming! 

Megan from AoDVD mentions this Time article which lists five titles coming in 2005 from the major comic publishers. For Viza lot of people are most likely looking forward to Full Metal Alchemist or Hunter X Hunter, but for me it is definitely Dr. Slump. What a lot of people don't realize is that Dragon Ball wasn't Akira Toriyama's first hit. Before DB was Dr. Slump, about the misadventures of a girl robot. I haven't had a chance to read this yet myself, but I hear it is akin to something like Crayon Shinchan, with a young protagonist who is always getting into trouble. Should be fun... :)

Also interesting in this particular article is that all of Tokyopop's titles have english names listed. It seems like they are really wanting to push their american-made releases lately...
