Volume 005.1 Intro Image.png

I reference photos from a number of different locations when drawing Kohaku's village. Mostly it's just the Izu Peninsula woods and assorted nature shots, but I also use photos from my two-month research trip in Hokkaido, the picturesque scenery of Toyama, the rocky mountains of Karuizawa, landscape images of Yamanashi and the rocky islands and seaside cliffs of Pusan, Korea.

I really wanted to make it out to Yakushima for some prime shots, but preparing for serialization took a whole month. Plus I had two weekly series, so my trip never happened. It's a good thing that I already had a stockpile of reference photos!

With Senku's lab finally up and running, he's able to concoct some high-level science creations. Actually it's getting harder and harder for me as the writer to keep pace!

For the particularly tricky calculations, I have our science consultant and other experts to help fact check. But in the stone world, Senku's doing it all in his head... That's just Baaaad!
