This week for Manga Monday I’ve got a Quick Review of a fairly new series. It’s Dr. Stone by Inagaki Riichiro!

Plot Synopsis: This science-fiction adventure series follows what happens when suddenly the world’s biggest-ever “crisis” arrives….

Plot: This series starts off pretty well, and while Senkuu is a really odd character, I like him quite a bit. Eccentricity isn’t a bad thing. I was quickly entranced by the series, but given that it was written by the Mangaka of Eyeshield 21 I shouldn’t have been surprised.

Characters: Senkuu and Taiju are our male lead characters along with Yuzuriha as our female lead. They are all really interesting characters and frankly I’m super intrigued by them. Senkuu is a genius, and Taiju seems to be the brawny guy. So I’m really looking forward to reading the rest of the series.

Artwork: The artwork is awesome, as one would expect from a Jump series.

Overall: I won’t say it’s a must read, but it’s pretty darn close to being one.

For those who like: Sci-Fi, Drama, Romance, Action, Adventure, Excellent Plot, Fantastic Cast of Characters, Amazing Artwork.

Not for those who don’t like: Any of the above.
