From the bottom of my heart, I'd like to thank all the fans who send in letters and gifts. I'm sorry that I can't send individual responses back.
I spend my days drawing Dr. Stone and thinking about Senku's inventions and the future world he lives in.
Sometimes I go on research trips and sometimes I discuss the science, the world building and Senku's feelings with my supervising editor. I do all that so I can pour my heart into every single drawing so that I can create more color pages, etc.
I want every line of every drawing to communicate just how much love I have for the fans.
There's a tale told by these drawings, a tale of gratitude and thanks.
The Jump staff had the creators write some calligraphy about their upcoming plans for the new year. Like aspirations, ambitions and so on.
For this meaningless embarrassing exercise, I gripped the brush with a trembling hand that's never really written calligraphy before, and thought, "Why not shill for the anime adaption while I'm at it?"
On that note, the Dr. Stone anime starts in July 2019. I hope you watch!!
