Excerpted from the Toriyama's World post:
"According to sources in Japan, it seems [Akira]Toriyama's new manga in the June issue of Monthly Jump will be a 22-page "yomi-kiri", or what we call a One-Shot. It's dissapointing that it's only a one-shot, and it's so short, but it's still something to look forward to. Hopefully, AK and I will scan and translate it shortly after it comes out on May 2nd.

What is strange is that even though it may be a one-shot, Toriyama
is choosing Monthly Jump instead of Weekly Jump, the more popular magazine that his major series Dr. Slump, Dragon Ball, Cowa!, Kajika, Sand Land, etc. were in. AK proposed the likely theory that Shueisha is putting it in Monthly Jump in order to boost sales and interest. It's apparently working, as I'm already interested in a couple of series in there.
