When a mysterious light suddenly engulfs Earth, humanity is left petrified, frozen in stone. Thousands of years later, the world is teeming with vegetation, and forests have taken the places of cities that once stood proudly. One of the very first to emerge from their stone prison is Taiju Ooki, who finds that his good friend, a brilliant young scientist named Senkuu, has been preparing for his awakening. While Taiju wishes to save the girl he loves, Senkuu is determined to figure out the cause behind the strange phenomenon and restore the world to its former glory.

But when they free the infamously powerful Tsukasa Shishiou in order to gain an upper hand against the dangers in an unfamiliar world, they realize that their new comrade has other plans. Tsukasa sees their predicament as a chance to start over; free from the corruption and destruction wrought by technology, he will stop at nothing to achieve his goals. With both sides unable to see eye to eye, Senkuu and his devotion to science will clash with Tsukasa and his primal nature in what will truly be a battle of the ages.

This review is heavily based on personal opinion and may feel biased (which I don't disagree if you say so), feel free to agree or disagree.

Story: 9/10
The concept of rebuilding humanity from the stone age with all of the knowledge that we have from the modern age is truly amazing by itself. Dr. Stone not only presents this concept to the public (though may not be the first one to do so) and executes it very well.

Art: 10/10
The artwork from Boichi is truly outstanding, the high detail on the art really makes me appreciate it and wonders how does a man accomplishes this. The character read more

Story: 8/10

The protagonists will have to restore mankind from the beginning, both in terms of people, and in technology. It is easy to understand and very fun to read, it also has the mystery behind the petrification, which ends up making the story even more interesting.

Art: 10/10

One of the strongest points, even in comedies the art is good, Featured to the double pages, because they are absurdly beautiful.

Character: 6/10
At the moment, the characters are not very charismatic, the only ones that caught my attention were Senkuu (who makes the story to progress) and Tsukasa with opposing ideals and is the villain of the history.

Enjoyment: read more

This review will contain spoilers up to the marked chapter.

A modern-day take on the ancient battle of Athens and Sparta with new twists and turns. What happens when one day all of humanity is petrified by an unknown light and humanity must rebuild? Enter your cast of The Brain, the Brawn, the Girl and the Enemy. Dr. Stone starts off strong with an engaging premise that has a ton of potential something that I wish was explored more often in anime and manga - the rebuilding of human society after a mass tragedy. Most of the time we see the after-product without seeing the process read more

Some settings are quite exaggerated (catching belt, beating lions, knowing how to make literally everything) but those where necessary to even start the story so I omit longer complain.

Author lacks in very basic knowledge and replaces that with long chemical sentences and general confusion of other characters.

Manga challenges readers with more and more ridiculous ideas with each arc (it's hard to review this part without spoilers so here are some):

1. Village started by 6 ppl (at least 5 of them were fairly or very intelligent) 3700 years ago. (Forget about extinction caused by to small number or genes poll) They didn't develop anything, didn't use read more
