Dr. STONE reboot: Byakuya will not be a one chapter side story, but a SPIN-OFF SERIES that will start being serialized from Issue #48 onwards. Boichi will be drawing 2 SERIES in the same magazine at the same time!
This new series will be drawn and written completely by Boichi. Riichiro Inagaki will not be involved on the series, as far as we know.
Created by Riichiro Inagaki and Boichi, Dr. Stone is a tale about two students, Senku and Taiju, who are ordinary students living their lives and following their goals. Taiju has a crush on a woman and at last he wants to reveal his feelings and Senku is working on a science room experiment. One day, when Taiju finally confessed his love, the world was enveloped by a light. The light then begins to turn people into stones. Slowly but surely, all were converted into rock, including Senku and Taiju. They could do nothing, being stuck in stones, only fear frenzied inside their claustrophobic nightmare. Humanity’s entirity has become trapped, unable to escape their fate. Unknowingly, only mankind has been trapped in stones, with pets and zoo animals free to roam and do as they please, the animal kingdom flourishes. Time passes without the presence of mankind, Earth exists without humanity.
