As a part of their multi-part “Toriyama Short Stories” series, Carlsen has confirmed their release for both the previously-announced Neko Majin series as well as Jaco the Galactic Patrolman in Germany.
The “Toriyama Short Stories” series is set to contain a wealth of the author’s work, both related to Dragon Ball and otherwise. Other stories of interest to Dragon Ball fans in particular include Dragon Boy, one of the main prototypes for the series.
The first book — featuring Go! Go! Ackman! — saw its release 27 May 2014 for €5.95. The second book — featuring Dragon Boy — will launch for the same price this month on 26 August 2014. The fourth book in particular will contain the Neko Majin series. Note that some of the covers are provisional and may change before their final release. All currently-announced volumes are available for order/pre-order on Amazon Germany.
Neko Majin, a story about magical cats released in eight chapters over the course of 1999-2005, increasingly became a Dragon Ball parody and spin-off as it went on. Jaco the Galactic Patrolman debuted as the “…shocking revival of Dragon Ball” and told the story of a galactic patrolman’s mission on Earth before winding its way into the main Dragon Ball story.
Many thanks to Javaki on our forum for the detailed heads-up!
