Manga creators Akira Toriyama and Masakazu Katsura will collaborate on a new series for the "Young Jump" magazine.

Toriyama, who is famous as the creator of "Dragon Ball", and Katsura, who is best known for his art in "I"s" "Zetman" and so on, have been close friends for a while now, and have worked together on more than one occasion before. In 2008, the duo collaborated on a one-shot titled "Sachie-chan Good" and then again on the 3-chapter manga series "Jiya" in 2009.

As of now, the Japanese weekly "Youn Jump" has 28 manga titles that are being regularly serialised. Of them, one is serialised monthly, three irregulars and one is currently on a hiatus.

For the upcoming manga series, Toriyama will be providing the story, while Katsura will pen the art-work to go with it. The news of the collaboration for the new series was revealed by Torishima in an interview with the Mando Kobayashi television show.
