According to inside sources, the new CLAMP manga series Chobits and the long running GTO (Grand Teacher Onizuka) manga have been aquired by Tokyopop for release in North America early in 2002.

Tokyopop has already licenced the GTO Anime which is based on the Manga, no release date has yet to be set for the Anime. GTO was published in 1997 by KC Magazine Shounen Comics. Written and drawn by Fujisawa Tooru, GTO was a rapid success. It has been printed in multiple languages, including a Japanese and English bilingual manga translated by Stuart Atkin and Yoko Toyozaki.

Clamp's Chobits runs in Kodansha's rather smutty Young Magazine, a manga weekly for guys which usually features a babe in a bikini on the cover. The story is cute, but definitely not Card Captor Sakura.

It seems that clam will have a busy year in 2002, in addition to Chobits and GTO they have already announced that Initial D, Love Hina, and Cowboy Bebop would all be joining their manga lineup.
