Every year, we get new manga. Some of it I hate, like the Parasyte-esque Jagaaaaan, and some of it I love like My Hero Academia. (I review that now. Tell your friends). However, I want to take a moment to tell you all about the manga you should be reading and why it is the best manga to come out of 2017. Not only will I be telling you what is the best manga of the year, but why it is the best manga of the year. Here we go...
Dr Stone stars main protagonist and highschool student (because all manga must at least begin in a school) Senkuu, who is a super-genius that is embedded in stone alongside the rest of humanity. Thousands of years pass and Senkuu is freed from his prison and finds himself in a jungle-like world where all modern technology has disappeared and no idea why any of this happened.
|Of course I was choosing Dr Stone! What were you expecting, one of the million of manga out there about someone being transported to a fantasy world? Bah.|
At the time of writing, we have been introduced to three sets of supporting characters. One is Senkuu's best friend Ooki Taiju and Ooki's crush Yuzuriha. Another set is an antagonistic force that I won't dare spoil for you, but let's just say that he's cray-cray. And lastly, there is the wonderful tribe that Senkuu has joined to help create his civilisation of science. Several different characters, and all of them are their own.
Do you remember how awed you were when you first saw Shikamaru fight Temari in Naruto Part 1, before that series became all about the eyes? You were able to sit back and appreciate it all, as it was clearly well thought-out by the writers but they explained in a way that meant it was accessible to everyone.
Now take that feeling, but double it. That's what reading Dr Stone is like.
|I should really start working on that anime kart game I've been writing...|
|This face is the best face ever.|
To sum up this article, just read Dr Stone. It's smart and fun and worth your time. Much more so than Attack on Titan or One Piece. That's right! I SAID IT!
