From the writer of Eyeshield 21 and the writer & artist of Sun-Ken Rock, just added to the line up the English edition of Weekly Shonen Jump, we got Dr. Stone. Let's take a look!

Warning for partial nudity.



First chapter is available for free, along with the second and third chapters, so give them a look in their entirety.

Our tale begins with this ominous narration and shot of horrified stone statues...

On that day... every human on Earth turned to stone!!

Our tale though begins just a little bit before that...

Days... months... years... centuries pass and Taiju, still frozen in stone, holds his sanity and his conscious, still holding to the belief he'll survive through pure sheer will until he can see if Yuzuriha is alive and then finally confess his feelings to her. As he does, the world crumbles, dams burst, bridges and building collapses, and more stone people are shattered to pieces.

And with that, humanity vanished from the earth and we cut to several thousand years later...

Taiju: and then... we'll save Yuzuriha!!

Senku: We might just be a pair of high school kids... but we're gonna create civilization from scratch. we'll be the Adam and Eve of this Stone World. I can't wait.


And that's the first chapter of the series. What do you think and would you like to see more of this series posted around here? It's pretty good and I wouldn't mind sharing more.

I also liked Hungry Marie, but apparently the rankings on that aren't good, so we're getting Robot X Laserbeam instead.

This is a fun concept, should be interesting to see how this story goes. The whole "everyone turns into stone suddenly" thing kind of reminds me of the silly what-if scenarios I used to come up with in my head when I was younger.

I do really like how the series approach with Taiju and Yuzuriha's relationship. So often in manga the main love interest is someone the main character has had a crush for long, yet they never spoke with before the beginning of the series yet we are told to believe they are meant for each other.
Here, however, we see that not only they have been friends for years now, they actually have things in common (it helps that later chapters shows he is respectful of her)
