That's like having Diego Armando, Phoenix Wright AND Mia Fey on the same defence team in court!
    ... You remember the year 2000? Hunter x Hunter, One Piece and Sand Land were all serialised.

    Similarly, takehashi is mostly known for InuYasha now, with some Ranma... while Maison Ikkoku and Lum get seriously overlooked (Lum has never finished publishing stateside, and they've tried three different times.) and her one shots are totally unknown.

    Or Alex Guiness being in Star Wars... Obi Wan Kenobi is all he's remembered for, despite his 40 year career before that.

    It's just a case of their most popular thing overshadowing the entire rest of their work.
    I always though Dr. Slump was nearly as popular as Dragonball in Japan. In Germany it was quite famous as well.
    Older Takehashi works are really getting overlooked, though.

    Overlooked? Not in Japan.

    Lum from Urusei Yatsura and Kyoko from Maison Ikkoku still ranks among the top most popular female characters usually when there's a wide-age-range poll.

    "Series" just means "not one-shot". It doesn't really imply anything beyond a volume.

    That's how all his series have been the last 15 years, and its what you should expect.

    Just a one-off tightly paced short story, like Sandland for instance, and that's fine.

    In Japan, sure. Stateside? No one gives a crap.

    The topic was "young manga readers in the west", so I assumed he was referring to american audiences. Of course Japan has a greater and broader appreciation of the author's works.

    (Unless I've totally mixed up "east" and "west"...)

    I suppose it makes some sense, Toriyama has taken a long breather from what the hectic manga work schedule however I don't expect this series go on for too long. I expect maybe one or so volumes(like Sand Land). However I don't find him to be the great story-teller he was years ago. Even then, I am interested in him returning to the game(albeit briefly).

    I'd love for Toriyama to do a one year series. But I guess that an 1-2 volume series will do.

    There's just something... off putting by the author's sense and inconsistency of anatomy and proportions.

    Dear lord...what's up with this guy's proportions?! A lot of his characters look...VERY off (and not in a hilarious parody-ish sort of way).

    It's even worse when the one-shot was about... I think sports medicine? and something about anatomy and physiology?

    The English Weekly Shonen Jump announced the new Toriyama series today as well. It's called Jaco The Galactic Patrolman and will be another comedy manga. (Link to thread)

    That Toriyama publishes a new series is defenitely worth checking out, but i somehow believe that it will be the old formula Toriyama showed us already a hundret times.
    Once again with new characters who look like all his old characters with some jokes here and there which weren`t that funny to begin with.(Mr. Satan isn`t included..he was hiliarious)

    ... Have you read Cowa, Kajika and Kintoki? I don't think they really fit into him using the same designs that much. Sand Land doesn't really do that much either, give or take a couple of references and a dragon quest-like character or two. Really I only see him using the same designs in his Dragon Quest stuff, more so since his art style has taken that lean towards a chibi-er look.

    Is there any information about the 'super-colour' chapter of One Piece next week? VIZ announced something like that IIRC.
