Is nobody reading this? I think its one of the few new mangas, who has a lot of fucking potential.
Without warning every human on Earth is turned to stone. Thousands of years later tough dumb guy breaks out and finds super science friend also free. The quest to restore civilization begins.
Super Science Friend is based as fuck too
Y'know what's kinda ironic?
I'm gonna guess that Chrome's not all that welcomed in the village because of his sorcery.
His storehouse is far from the village and they outright call it sorcery. The adults of the village probably don't like him doing it.
Ultimately, the ones who would resist science and sorcery the most are going to be the adults while the children like Chrome clearly would be more fascinated and want to explore it more.
Lion-o's whole mentality is completely fucked by that idea.
I just hope Taiju and Lion dude gets a bit more fleshed out. They seemed kind of 2D
This manga could potentially - if it gets run thats long enough - turn really dark. If Senkuu eventually succeeds with his science kingdom, he could become corrupt or some shit. But again, thats only if it lasts that long.
I hope atleast the author will make him take some morally twisted choices, for the sake of his kingdom
using a >there is no choice I'll have to use my secret technique page as a way to promote a manga doesn't seem like great idea.
You justposted the blandest and most generic battle shonen trope.
It's alright. It's nothing really special. It's basically your average Isekai MC uses OP technology in fantasy world plot but without the actually Isekai part. I can already predict the plot of the entire series.
It's kinda like the author took one of those survival video games that have gotten so popular since Minecraft and made a series based on the concept.
They're starting from sticks and rocks and are going to advance to building primitive mechs eventually (or at least that's the autistic hope of the MC).
It's been pretty fun so far, though I feel like things are a bit stacked against the current "villain" we got.
fanservice is shit used by shit manga to cover for their lack of good narrative qualities.
I'm just sayign that based on that page it seems your typical run of the mill adventure or battle shonen. If it has something more OP should have posted those pages to make people interested in it.
The series is literally called Dr. Stone, Senku was always destined to be the 1st protagonist I thought that was obvious.
Isn't it pretty damn high up in the ranking currently?
It probably feels that way because Senkuu's going to assume he can easily close the gap with scientific advancements and force Tsukasa's group to submit. the problem is, while he can absolutely close the gap through gunpowder alone, he is probably wrongly assuming that Tsukasa will submit when he realizes he and his crew can just get blown up. Senkuu though is not rarely the type to actually use scientific advances for mass murder and Tsukasa will probably realize this even before Senkuu himself does.
What Tsukasa really has going for him is a strong idealogy and the leisure to recruit/brainwash the most loyal followers he can.
>The teaching of the story is how with science, humans, even if they're weak, can rise against the odds and dangers, he's the scientist of the group.
>The series is named after him.
>The villian bonds not with Taiju, but with him.
>The story now is focusing solely on him, and with no signs of switching POVs soon.
>The story centric chapters of Taijuu served to flesh him as some kind of prologue.
Senku was always meant to be the hero, wich makes me wonder why they introduced Taiju as the hero at first. I prefer it this way, but I hope Taiju and Yuzuhira get fleshed in the near future.
The very beginning feels a bit disconnected now, like it was a pilot chapter or something. Especially after they revealed that Taiju's rejuvenation wasn't due to chance, but because of Senkuu sciencing him
Sometimes series begin with a clear idea only to change in the middle, wich always makes the previous part disconnected.
Berserk is a good example of it. The Guts of the first chapters have nothing to do with the later Guts, and not because of character development.
The beginning of a weekly series is always rushed when you're trying to tell an actual story. It's not like haremshit when you can just make each chapter focus on an isolated incident, you have to get to the point fast. Dr. Stone is already quadrupling the cast size.
Cool concept, great art and character designs.
But it's pretty generic, especially the characters. I feel like this will go the way of Ajin and the writer will quit, and it will turn into a different manga altogether. That or be cancelled.
But Dr. Slump is based only on charisma, after all, it's a gag. Dr. Stone wants to talk about friendship, great rivalries and hope, but its characters are not developed enough for that. Shit, the long-haired guy was barely "revived" and seconds later became the greatest villain of all time. If this had happened in Dr. Slump, it would be a good joke, in Dr. Stone it's just bad writing.
>The beginning of a weekly series is always rushed
Yes, but in this case it seems deliberate, because it's not just about going faster from one point to another but about wanting to be impactful and melodramatic all the time.
>What a great power, what a friendship, what a great villain, what a great death, what a great couple, what a great fight, what a great discovery, what a great new villains!
Things that took about 50 chapters to happen in OP, Naruto, BnHA, in DS happened in 10.
One of the few manga that i look forward to read every week, fucking love the art.
murata and inagaki did a good job together in EY21 becasue both of them were equals in some sort of way with the former taking over the manga at the key moments of the match and the latter when was time for build up.
you can also see how inagaki's moments displayed a quite simple artstyle and murata's drawings were accompanied by little to non-existent text.
as someone who has read both of dr stone's authors previous works i can tell they doesn't seem to have good chemistry as creators.
I prefer seinen over shounen 9 times out of ten, but I find origin mostly fucking boring. And Boichi is really good with sci fi and and trans or posthumanist themes.
Hotel was a fucking masterpiece: http://m.mangafox.me/manga/hotel/v01/c001/1.html
