[Honey's Crush Wednesday] 5 Chrome Highlights from Dr. Stone

Chrome is a budding young scientist (or sorcerer, according to him) who loves collecting interesting materials from the natural world and experimenting with them. He figured out how to change the color of fire with different chemicals, generate static electricity from sulfur, multiply large numbers, and much more all on his own. He also tested every herbal medicine he could find on himself to see if he could cure Ruri’s unknown disease. Even though he comes from a primitive society that doesn’t understand much about science, Chrome has accomplished a lot!

How The Structure of Jojo's Bizarre Adventure Avoids The Pitfalls of Shonen Cliche

Hirohiko Araki's legendary manga JoJo's Bizarre Adventure has been in constant publication for over 30 years, and in that time it hasn't lost one ounce of its unique appeal. Even though all eight parts are drastically different from one another, they somehow manage to work together as a cohesive whole. Many other famous long-running shounen manga like Dragon BallBleach, and Fairy Tail have faltered over time, so how has JoJo ridden so high for so long?

[Honey's Crush Wednesday] 5 Tsukasa Shishio Highlights - Dr. Stone

When Senku, Taiju, and Tsukasa initially team up near the beginning of the story, they’re referred to as the ultimate combination of brains, brawn, and brute force. But, if you think about it, Tsukasa pretty much has all three attributes in the bag by himself. He doesn’t have the vast depth of knowledge and improvisational skill of Senku or the bullheaded earnestness of Taiju, but Tsukasa is still highly intelligent and capable of surviving the post-apocalyptic stone world with no trouble. After all, he killed a lion with his bare fists mere moments after being unpetrified—how much more proof of his badassery do you need?

[Honey's Crush Wednesday] 5 Senku Highlights - Dr. Stone

Ever since he was a young child, Senku has had an insatiable curiosity for science. He grew up experimenting with chemical reactions, creating his own rockets, and researching college-level scientific concepts in elementary school math class. Now that the world has regressed back to the Stone Age, he can put that passion to use by skyrocketing humanity up the tech tree with his wealth of knowledge and the materials he has at hand. His unbridled glee at finding a rare resource or completing a crucial invention is so infectious!

Does Scientific Accuracy Matter in Dr. Stone?

Dr. Stone is the newest in a line of Weekly Shounen Jump series that takes the general structure and tropes of a battle shounen (a la Dragon Ball Z or Naruto) and applies them to something new. Shokugeki no Souma does this with food, Boku no Hero Academia does it with Western superheroes, and Dr. Stone is all about science. There are no superpowers or magic spells in the new Stone Age—only cold, hard scientific truths will help our heroes succeed in their mission to rebuild society from the ground up.
