Dr. Stone

Categories: (Ongoing) Manga Review
Name: Dr. Stone Author: Inagaki Riichiro (Story), Boichi (Art)

When Shounen Jump announced this new series in 2017 I was really curious (because the art is from Boichi, the author of Hotel and Hotel: since 2079) and I have to say that Dr. Stone is really a good and interesting manga.

Story: one day, a blinding flash of light turns everyone on Earth to stone. After several millennia two boys, Senku and Taiju, are revived in the future where science don't exist anymore. Everything seems lost but Senku has a plan in mind: with the power of science help the petrified humanity and bring back the old civilization.

I think that the plot is really simple but at the same time it's really interesting because the blinding flash of light turns everyone on Erath to stone but we don't know why. The manga is full of small arcs where Senku needs to build something from our era in the future where humans don't know what technology is. But the manga isn't only about building something, sometimes Senku needs allies to help him in some major arcs. For now there isn't any arc that is boring and every week I wait for a new chapter to read.

Maybe there isn't that much character development since Senku and some characters that are introduced later in the manga stays always the same but at the same time are fresh and interesting in the settings they are. In reality, it's not a problem that they stay the same becuse every small arc introduce slowly a character and something related to them.

The art is really good. I have previously read some other manga made by Boichi and I have to say that his art improved a lot. The images are really well made and sometimes the author use double pages and... those pages are really beautiful! I can't stop to look at them! But that's not all! The faces of the characters sometimes are really funny to look and Boichi use them a lot.

My rating: 9/10
