( NO SPOILERS except a small part from the first chapter ) I’ve read the first three volumes, and man it has been fantastic so far. Every volume has just gotten better and better, with the 1st volume and part of the 2nd being a prologue for the rest of the series.
The story is unique and refreshing. Watching these characters attempt to rebuild the world with hard work, ingenuity, and science is fun and satisfying.
The art here is fantastic. The backgrounds are well detailed and really make the world feel alive. And the characters are distinct, well drawn, and expressive especially during the comedic moments. The characters are all really likable, especially Senku the main character.
The only nitpicks I have are how our two main protagonists wake up in this new world. Them being conscious this whole time for thousands of years without any repercussions feels too unrealistic for me. And there are some minor pacing problems during parts of the prologue.
Other than that the series has been fantastic, and I’m really looking forward to reading more and seeing where it goes.
