Author's Comment

Volume 006.1 Intro Image

For chapters 42-44, I used over 1,070 reference photos. It was brutal work for several weeks, but my staff and I poured out hearts into it. Why? I have special feelings for the Soyuz rockets and Baikonur base since one of my past series was set in Russia. In order to learn about the country's history, literature, food and mafia, I read Russian books, listened to Russian music and even tried cooking Russian food. After all, I know that i need to cultivate a certain love for a culture if I want to portray it. With that series, I tried to convey Russia's passion, loneliness and solemnity.

In a way, doing this part of Dr. Stone revived my passion for Russia. I still haven't traveled there in person, but I hope to someday!

I visited a spear dojo for research!

This picture's small and it's hard to tell, but the spear on the left is blurry. The "pipe spear" has the spear itself going through a pope and just like Hyoga's it spins around. There's no blocking that!

They even let me try it out. I got it to spin just fine, but pulling off an actual attack was another story. I need more training!
