Strange, strange stuff

Manga - Japanese comics - is rather popular right now. It's also aimed at me, I gather from it's proximity to stuff I enjoy like science fiction novels, graphic novels and Adult Swim.
An email newsletter I get from Del Rey publishers listed the following items of inexplicability:

Ponta is a Labrador retriever puppy, the Koizumi family's pet.
But when Grandpa Koizumi, an amateur inventor, creates the Guru Guru
Bone, Ponta discovers she can use it to turn into a human girl! Ponta
quickly meets and falls in love with Mirai Iwaki. And when he realizes
that she's actually a dog, Mirai learns to overcome it. Talk about an
odd couple.

Lucia is the new girl at school. She and her sister
run a public bath that's all the rage.

I can't figure out if this is the modern version of Archie comics or softcore porn. Also interesting is that the Guru title is apparently the fourth installment of the adventures of Mirai Iwaki and his dog-woman. Perhaps in #5, they'll head over tho Lucia's public bath for some fun with Grandpa Koizumi.
