Stone World (STONEWORLD,Sutōn Wārudo?) is the first volume of the Dr. Stone manga.
One fateful day, all of humanity was petrified by a blinding flash of light. After several millennia, high schooler Taiju awakens and finds himself lost in a world of statues. However, he’s not alone! His science-loving friend Senku’s been up and running for a few months and he's got a grand plan in mind—to kickstart civilization with the power of science!
Ah, so happy... Ahh, so very happy... This book makes me so happy!
This story's got everything! Life in the great outdoors, a postapocalyptic setting, a scientist boy, primeval visuals and characters with the courage and conviction not to yield to an unfamiliar world. I seriously love it all, and drawing it is super fun!
