You know what they say: If the century fits, then...travel back in time to become a pop-singing sensation! Vivacious Neo loves to sing and test the boundaries of 23rd-century modesty with her short, short skirts. But when she accidently travels back in time to the 21st century, it's time to sink or sing! Before she knows it, she's teamed up with the handsome Saya as half of the ultimate singing duo. But all her dreams may vanish if they can't put on one great concert. With Saya depending on her, will Neo keep time on her side?
Tokyopop released 21 volumes of the ongoing Sgt. Frog comedy manga in North America. The manga inspired multiple television anime series and anime films. Viz Media describes the story:
Sgt. Keroro, commanding officer of Planet Keron's invasion force, has a problem. After blowing his cover and losing his top-secret weapon, the frog-like alien has been cut off from the home world. To make matters worse, he's lost communications with the rest of his platoon. Now he has taken cover in the Hinata family household, where in exchange for doing his share of the chores, he gets his own room from which to secretly devise new plans of world domination!
Tokyopop released all eight of the Hands Off! manga volumes and its prequel Hands Off: Don't Call Us Angels. Viz Media describes the story:
Kotarou Oohira is a boy with a clueless touch-he has an unusual type of ESP that is transmitted via physical contact. When he accidentally gives his cousin Tatsuki this "gift" he comes to realize that there is much more to his powers than he ever imagined! Known throughout the manga world, veteran creator Kasane Katsumoto delivers a close-to-home fantasy filled with action, intrigue and the gentle touch of boys!
