Rich Johnston reports this morning that manga creator Akira Toriyama is going to write some new chapters of Dragon Ball (also known as Dragon Ball Z in the United States). Dragon Ball originally ran from 1984 to 1995 in Japan, and Viz Media published it in the U.S.

Johnston states the obvious: “Something that will make this event even more spectacular is a simultaneous fully translated worldwide launch of the new book.”

The Viz folks were tweeting last week about a big announcement to come this week, and they have already done a simultaneous release with Rumiko Takahashi’s Rin-ne, so this indeed may be their big news. Stay tuned!

They're two different series, except Z was the only one popular in the U.S.

Actually no they are not. Only the anime continues as Z after the last touramenet with chi-chi. In the original manga it was always called dragon ball. They're was never a name change. The Anime dub hit before the translated manga chapters taking place after time skip were completed, thus when the next manga chapters started here in the US it was misnamed DBZ.

...So then is this referring to Z or regular DB?

Akira Toriyama had nothing to do with DBGT, it's not at all canon.

Chances are, whatever Toriyama is writing might have something to do with Dragon Ball Online.

Even though I considered GT complete and utter crap (it was entirely too confusing, I prefer the original Dragon Ball series better, it was cuter and was more lighthearted), I think it can be considered somewhat canon. Toriyama did not write the story, but from what I've heard he strictly oversaw the production of the series so he did have something to do with the series, sorta.
