Meh. I think manga just might not be for me. I hated the over exaggerated emotions and outsized caricatures of actual people. The scientist guy was a pompous ass. Then there's the average kid who's OK with just being called the labor force and being sort of dumb. Eh. Moving on. ...more
ONE OF THE BEST MANGA OF 2020. If you haven't read this what are you waiting for?

Dr. Stone was an unexpected surprise for me this year. I picked it up randomly and I loved it. It focuses on a society where everyone turns into stone and the main characters Taiju and Senku find themselves tasked with restoring civilization. This manga is OVER THE TOP but it's what I loved about it. I think there is something to be said about a post apocalyptic book where characters are responsible for recreating t

In a nutshell, Dr. Stone is a story about how two high school boys deal with the entirety of the human race being miraculously turned into stone. The phenomenon happens one day just as one of them is on the cusp of confessing to the girl they like. In this first volume the cause of the new stone age is not yet revealed, so if you’re not someone who can just go with the flow and not question too many things, this story might not gel with you too well. That being said, one of the char

i watched the entire first season on the anime first and i think because i did, i came into this manga already knowing the tone and vibe of it. this story is very over-the-top, almost like a caricature of characters, and i think if you lean into that and understand that's what this is doing - that there is a plot but it's very exaggerated for comedy - you could enjoy it more. i very much did. i loved all the science in it. i love the characters. very excited to continue with the manga and for se ...more

An interesting apocalyptic story that starts out of nowhere as for unknown reasons, the whole population of the Earth is turned into stone. However, two survivors manage to escape their petrified states a few millenniums later: Self proclaimed science genius Senku and his hopeless romantic buddy Taiju whose true love is also one of the stoned. Together, they must try to survive their new home and find other survivors. Slow start, but the two main characters keep it exciting as I wait to see how ...more

Okay, here's the deal.

I originally read this when it was released in the US in 2018, and I gave it a pretty scathing review. I decided to give this series a second chance, just to see if my feelings have changed. The short answer is, yes they have for the better.

In hindsight, while some of my original complaints still stand (we'll discuss those in a bit), I do think I was too critical of this first volume. Is it perfect? No. Is it entertaining? Yes. With those simple questions out of the way, he

"We're in the realm of the fantastic, here. Are they stone through-and-through, or are their cells intact?"

What a fun read!! It read just like an anime (shocker, I know)!

The characters were hilarious exaggerations of everything. Of the people we meet, we have a snarky science-y whiz kid, a dumb jock and a teenager made for smashing things. Take those concepts and turn them up to 11, and that's closer to what you get here.

The premise is great and even though they immediately used the tried-and-tr

I had nothing other than a bias against anime/manga going into this book, but i was very pleasantly surprised. (For whatever reason the art styles set me on edge...) While I could do without all the over the top reactions, I thought the story well told and the characters engaging. The artwork, detailed black and white, and seems to fit the rustic new world setting. I am interested seeing how things play out in the next volume, but can wait for a sale.

3.5 stars rounded to 4.
A very enthusiastic survival story about basic scientific ingredients and friendship. Some of the illustrations made me laugh out loud and I learned a few things about calcium carbonate (seashells!) and preserving meat.

4/5 Stars (%80/100)

Everyone on the Earth is turned into stone by a mysterious light. The story revolves around our protagonist called Senku İshigami who is a genius and very knowledgable about science. When he is unpetrified, he tries to survive in order to unpetrify every human being on the Earth. What Dr. Stone does best is to present very complex science stuff in a very a fun way so even if you are not fan of science, you still remember many things. Senku's character is brilliant and also his

On my brothers recommendation of this anime I decided I would pick up this manga and damn I’m glad I did. This was equal parts funny and serious, science and fantasy, and really interesting over all. Humanity was wiped out in a blink and two guys who clearly should not be in charge of revival are still up to the task. Would totally recommend and will be continuing myself as well.

I watched the anime till episode 10 then moved quickly to mangas and start reading them from the very first one.
I really didn't expect it to be this good.

I felt I'm a student at our amazing physics lab again. (though most of them are related to chem lab!) :))

This volume lays the groundwork nicely. The art in this book is magnificent. While I enjoyed the story, I’m hopeful that it will improve with time. I’m looking forward to reading the next volume.

One day, all of humanity, and some animals, turn to stone, right as Taiju was confessing his love for Yuzuriha. Time ticked on, and now it’s thousands of years into the future. Senku has been awake for six months, after counting all the seconds while conscious in his stone body. Taiju wakes after holding on to his love for Yuzuriha while he was stone. The two work on a formula for breaking down the stone of others when they are beset by a pack of lions. They use their liquid

Post-apocolyptic tales are usually not my thing. So I hesitated for quite a while when I read about this one, even though I love the author's other major work (and largely for its large cast of characters I actually liked). The idea of everyone being turned into stone for thousands of years, and reviving only after almost all traces of modern civilization have been erased by nature seemed like a setup for every tired post-apocolypse cliche in the world.

But yeah ... I kind of love it. Because in

Best Sci-fi Manga Ever!

Some unknown phenomenon has turned every human being into stones. 3700 years later, Taiju (a musclehead) wakes up and finds Senku (a science freak), who also awakened recently. Together, they set on the path to restore scientific civilization.

I would have rated this 5 stars even if the story wasn’t this good simply for seeing Senku with his hair down. What can I say? I’m a simple lady.
That was... odd. I'm not sure if in a good way or a bad way yet. From this first volume, though, it kinda grabbed me.

A mysterious explosion of light turns the world's population to stone. Millennia later, a few people wake up from the petrification and must survive in a world with only their wits and strength. It's a sci fi civilization-building story, one Inagaki-sensei seems to have thought about quite a bit to make sure the science, if not 100% accurate, isn't nonsensical (I don't know enough

This was my first foray into the world of Manga and I have to say, I had an absolute blast.

I was apprehensive at first, not only because the prospect of flipping through the book backwards was awkward, but because this was a book focused on some of my absolute favourite story ideas (Dystopia, Post-Apocalypse, Sci-fi) so I knew that this particular Manga had a tough crowd to please.

As I read through page-by-page I was amazed by how much the imagery carried the story forward and immersed me into t
While I thought the manga hair was great in this, the characters were so beyond annoying - I couldn't deal with the "I'm the science one" "I'm the murder one" etc., and the endurance guy... jfc I don't think he stopped screaming the entire book! It was like if you were hanging out with your friends, and someone said they were hungry, so you launch into "YOU'RE HUNGRY?! HOW CAN THIS BE?! I WILL SOLVE THIS - I WILL COOK FOR YOU!!

This story is definitely one that has a new angle to it.
Each character is thoughtfully planned out, and plays their role in the story. They are all individual, and unique in the roll that they play. (Though some of these traits fall into other manga tropes.)
I am now very invested in what is going to happen to these teens. You can expect me to pick up more of this story soon.

Senku Ishigami is as science loving student that is fascinated by space. He has two friends Taiju Ori and Yuzuriha Ogawa. One day while they were in school a green light flashed over the earth. The green light had turned everything to stone. Your body would go to sleep but your brain still worked until you fell asleep. Senku had counted the entire time he was statue. He counted the seconds until he became unpetrified. 3000 years had gone by until Senku had awoken and when he did he did the only ...more

Focusing on rebuilding civilization instead of combat does give the story more flavor, but it's still intensely shonen. The catchphrases, the gags, the primary conflict... it feels too familiar even though it's new to me. ...more
