As the artist behind Dr. Stone, my original goal was to draw a fascinating, science-based story while sticking to the core principles of manga creation. However, I recently realized that in an era of human crises when we must believe in the power of science and human intellect, Dr. Stone is an allegory about people saving humanity. Senku never submits despite facing countless desperate situations. He's a character who keeps hoping and smiling, staying true to himself while striving to use science and reason to protect humanity.
Dr. Stone feels like the only series that keeps the whole world in mind.
Therefore, I'm grateful to Inagaki Sensei for entrusting me with this series. I'll continue to work hard to portray the noble human spirit embodied by this story.
No matter how long and difficult the scientific road map is, I know that humanity, like Senku, is going to triumph. No matter what obstacles lie ahead, failure is not an option.
Most manga is in black and white, and I don't believe that's a flaw of the medium. One of manga's key aspects is how information is abbreviated, exaggerated and managed. That said, while black and white is all well and good, there are times I wish I could show you all something in color! The drinks pictured above are real-life samples of the ones that Senku and crew have on their global voyage in the upcoming volume 17. Please pick up the next book to find out what those drinks are!
