Latest news ...
I'm sorry for I've been extremely late in finishing  the Arale.hlp project.
It is still not complete, I'm really really sorry.
Please have some more patience... my brain is gonna be overburdened ( my only neuron is a bit tired! 8-)

Arale - The WinHelp File (discontinued project)

Many many years ago ( quite 10) , I started building an Hypertext Help file on Arale amp; Dr.Slump manga.
I decided to build it in WinHelp format, so it should be readable by 90% of PC installed in the world at that time ( windows 3.1 systems!), even by people without an internet connection !
At that time I did find a FAQ on Arale, written by Curtis Hoffmann,(hi Curtis ! How are you ? I hope soon or late our work is gonna be published!).
It was a text file, and I pondered it would be great to have images too... Day after day I built a "powered" version of the original guide to the manga of Akira Toriyama, and now... I'm ready to show you some preview !
Note : the main motivation to do that was because Arale was not really known in italy, except for some minor TV stations that did air some episodes some years before. Actually arale is a mainstream known manga character, widepreadly known by everybody.The printed version of the manga has been published in italy even in glossy colors, the TV series has been aired too.
So the goal of building my guide (to let the manga be known) did reduce its relevance... and my efforts in building it faded away.
I really don't know if I'll release it in the future.
If someone wishes to continue the project... I'll give him everything I've made up to date. So you know.. you can write to

As you may have noticed, in this help file there are many many characters that are not mentioned in the original text file (that's progress, dudes!). I included even minor characters , appeared even only in a page in the whole manga !!

Any character has his own "quick form" carrying all important infos about him !
As example, here's the quick form for Peeske (Pippo, in the Italian TV translation) :

Peeske Soramame -- Tarou's wimpy little brother.
Note that the words underlined are links to get additional information ! Every character, place, japanese cultural fact, japanese food, invenction, volume reference is linked in order to help you find everything you want to know about the manga very quickly !

In the Arale.hlp file there is a MAIN CONTENT page, useful to quick browse the various section of the file.The main content page is similar to the following text :
Introduction to Arale's world !!!
Volume Summaries
Manga Chronology
Various Cultural Notes
Translated Table of Contents for Each Volume
Penguin Village, ten years later (vol. 16)
Manga Chronology
Baseball Teams Members !
2nd Grand Prix Race Results (from vol. 18)
Toriyama asks Senbee questions sent in by the readers (v. 16)
Characters Who Made the Transition to Dragon Ball
Voice Actors in Dr. Slump
The original SoUnD TrAcK ! ! ! !
Arale : The Virus !
Funny Stats !

In the help file, there is a BIG colored map of the penguin village, with every building linked to the correlated entry in the hlp file ! When you click on the police station you jump to the police station page, and you'll see all police men of the penguin village. And so on for every building !
Here's a small black and white copy of a map of the penguin village !

I have to thank Curtis Hoffmann for having provided me this map.
Note : the map in the help file is bigger, colored, and does not contain any of the items pertaining to the race illustrating which it was designed for in the original manga. I strongly reedited the map... a long work !
