As an artist, watching an anime based on my own series can be very educational because artists much more talented than me work on the anime and use their expertise to make Dr. Stone even more beautiful!
Every time I watch, I find myself wishing I had drawn the manga differently! They alter the drawings and portrayals in certain ways to accommodate the fact that it's animated.
If my own drawings improve, I suppose that improvement would also be reflected in the anime.
I feel like I'll keep growing as long as the anime continues. At least, I hope so!
I can't wait to watch this week's episode and learn something new!
In light of the Perseus appearing in the story, I did some research about motorized sailing ships. The one in the picture is the Meiji-Maru, which was once an actual operational ship.
That one wasn't the model for the Perseus, but I did get to ask lots of questions and learn interesting things about real ships.
To sum up my impression, I'd say, "Sailing ships are just the thing to fire up your shonen spirit!"
