Dr. Stone has just reached over 100 chapters (103 realeased as of now) and it looks like it is good to go for a while longer. I appreciate that the goal is to have this manga appeal to all ages and the anime will only boost it's popularity.

My favourite part was definitely chapters 50-70 because the planning, pacing and story devlopment were at it's best. It highlighted the manga's strengths which I believe are in the great leadership qualities of the main character, Senku and the creativity of both the writer and the artist. The manga was able to show step by step processes with explanations on how the task at hand would be achieved and it was both exciting and educational for me.

The main character is unique and wonderful, to be honest he is very well depicted in both his design and in the way he is written within the manga itself. The rest of the cast is a mixture of interesting and lovely. The writer tends to focus on the light hearted relationships in this story and it allows readers to connect to the "normal" characters in this story. Although it really is overwhelmingly light hearted at this stage, but the bonds between the characters do gradually grow stronger.

The story started off with a deep passion for science to restore modern civilization but to be honest the manga isn't really too scientific. That isn't to say it does not use science at all but normally you will witness a new item being crafted or things being constructed and then they refer to science as being the source of their achievement.

Having said that, the underlying themes do tend to switch from crafting, gathering, community, action to name a few. But I really could not tell you what the main ones are or what they should be. At times, I believe the writer and artist aren't on the same wavelength and certain parts or even whole chapters do not get depicted as well as they could have done.

All in all Dr. Stone definitely is off to a good start and you will be doing yourself a favour in reading it to see if you like it.

An interest take on a cliched setting, can't comment on the accuracy of the science but it's still interesting to watch (thou not very believable), something like a comprehensive japanese Mac Gyver, still it's a leap of faith I can accept. The MC is interesting as are some of the side chars thou I find the hype or way they try to make everything look cool or epic slightly annoying. Story is interesting even if it takes a rather strange turn soon enough and also I had some great laughs at times.
The main flaw in this one is the naivety of the author. The not kill surfaces again and again it's not done well and is too extreme for a very rational person like the MC to not take the kill one save 7 billion choice is dumb, alternatively, lie, one lie you save humanity... not an option either, just naive. Likewise the idea of reviving 7 billion people in a world that can't sustain it is extremely stupid, all subsequent inanition and struggle of resources deaths will be a result of their actions, and it will be in the millions, again, can't kill 1 but is ok with millions dying as a result of his choices? And again, the villain depetrifies random school kids and they go off to kill people? they are modern school kids or young people they just don't have that mentality, you can justify a few but not most of them. Another big one is:
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
how a village that has been there for 3700 years has only 40 people, no technology and has not expanded in all that time... modern humans created that village, top scientist astronauts and there is even a teacher but al knowledge is lost but 100 ridiculous stories??? that's just plain stupid. Humanity in 3700 years went from iron working to this era right now but in the manga with way bigger headstart it instead regressed? doesn't make sense.
Last or first maybe, a school kid, no matter how strong can't kill a lion, he just can't, let's be very forgiving and go with it, ok, but I can't go with him killing 1 lion and 4 lionesses with his bare hands and pretty much in 1 sec on reflex, that's an brutish example of what I mean by having things look epic, just a lion would have been overkill already, what's the need.
In any case, if you can tolerate that naivety it's an entertaining teenage oriented survival style story.

The best shounen manga I've read recently

Not gonna lie, I cried reading this, sometimes. It's truly beautiful, how human always strive for knowledge, for science. Somewhere, someone would eventually venture to discover the world around them, yearn to understand the nature. Science never dies, as long as human survives.
Also the art is great, the character is likeable. Some first chapters may seem a little typical and boring, but wait until you got to the 'fun' part.
This manga is truly beautiful. A gem of course. Hope it get an anime soon.

This is probably the best shounen manga running in Jump right now. Boichi's art is fantastic (and I'm *very* glad that this isn't an ecchi manga), and the writer proved his abilities with the fantastic Eyeshield 21. Together, they've created something very special - a manga that's obviously shounen, yet still somehow manages to truly get into the spirit of science, awe of science, etc. It's almost transhumanist in places.

Oh, and it's entirely original, featuring a fantastic apocalypse scenario and central conflict. The characters are brilliant, original individuals. Senku in particular is a highlight, a brilliantly written character. But all the side characters have their own personality, their own goals and motivations, and they provide plenty of variety.

(PS: I'm amazed the manga got such terrible ratings on Mangaupdates. Well, I recommend just ignoring those. I'm not exaggerating when I say it's top.)

This manga is unlike any other. It has an original plot and has none of the usual shounen cliches and tropes.

I highly recommend this series if you want something fresh with an amazing plot.

The author is the same as the one who created eyeshield21, so you could expect amazing plot and characters from this.

the author is not boichi so i'm quite optimist the ending won't turn sour like Sun-Ken Rock but i like the idea and the plot like:
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
how they save someone that turn out to be the biggest enemy of previous mankind

and their way of survive in post apocalypse world. it's kinda refreshing because there no battle with nature like Seven Seeds and pretty informative for survival tips. hope the hype won't decline after some chapters
