1. Senku (obviously XD)
The fact that he's brilliant is one thing, but his personality is the best. After so many years of watching anime/reading mangas I get bored easily when I keep seeing the same thing over and over again. I lost interest in typical shonen tropes and upright heroes. Senku is a breath of fresh air. Genius (but weak XD), sarcastic (and good looking too...XD), playful and cunning (but is still kind and cares about his friends). I worship him. What else is there to say? XD

2. Gen
Someone who appears to be manipulative (like scientist like mentalist) and shallow, but is actually a cinnamon roll who's loyal to Senku (and even prepared a birthday party T__T). Behind that facade is a nice guy who can't seem to hurt others.

There are other characters that I like, Byakuya, Tsukasa, Kaseki, Chrome, etc etc, but the top two would be Senku and Gen.

Senku.
He is the best character in this story because he is the last hope for humanity to evolve again.
I also like those 2 blondies there but unfortunatelly i finished this anime a long time ago and i don't remember their names.

Can I just say everyone? I don't think there's a character I don't like/don't think fills their "role" in the series very well.

If I had to pick my absolute favorites: Byakuya, Kohaku, and Gen.

The Byakuya love is definitely mostly from the BOCHI side story that focuses on him/the astronauts in the ISS. He is the perfect father figure for Senku and it's great to see how much they love and trust in each other despite being separated by thousands of years. Senku seems a little too "perfect", so Byakuya is the nice balance of still being human and struggling but working his way to the top.

Kohaku is kinda easy since I have a soft spot for strong, independent women. She's willing to sacrifice everything for what she cares about (initially only Ruri). Plus, she's just bad***. I really like how her initial sheltered/centralized circle of trust, she's one of the unifying characters that keeps the entire group together.

Gen is purely for his personality. It's over the top, but only when necessary, which all probably calculated anyway. Even though he says he's only in it for himself, he does care and probably cares a lot more than he wants to admit. Probably the most interesting character in the series so far. Like, I would want to see the sort of work he was doing before the petrification happened.

Senku, Gen and Byakuya from boys, Kohaku from girls :3

Senku has a heart in right place, is a walking computer in matter of knowledge and math, has even a clock function I suppose :D and the funny scenes are always the best, when he's part of them, he's so cheeky and calculative, he's a char' that is hard to hate :)

Gen is a two face, at first I couldn't decide, what to think of him, but he slowly grew on me. He's mysterious, smart, often bringing up interesting ideas, the design of his character is original and that evil face sometimes, well, he can be scary if he wants, admirable. He's one of my fav' characters, who's undergone change of character during series - if evil guys start to do good for change, it's nearly automatic like for me wahah.. I can't trust in his maliciousness anymore, hopefully it stays like that :D

Byakuya is such a sweatie, always so optimistic, cheerful, yet hardworking and dependable, how it should be for a father figure. I was very touched by his actions and presents made for Senku and following generations. Really, such a strong figure.

Kohaku is a strong willed person, loayal to her believs, caring when necessary and really a cool fighter. She can decide on her own, what she wants to do or who to believe or follow, I think she has some potential being a fighting commander in the future for the tribe. Being bashful is rare for her, but it's worth it, when this side of her is actually shown :D

This part is so crazy. I can be highly accurate telling time...but only if I'm not concentrating on anything else (music experience of knowing what 60 BPM). I have no idea how he's able to do all these other calculations and intense analysis at the exact same time. Even manga exaggeration seems ridiculous!

I think @Marco Polo (by far our biggest Gen fan) has a slightly different preference, but I think we all agree on liking parts of the "maliciousness"!

I really hope you don't mind teasers but...I REALLY HOPE THEY ANIMATE THE BYAKUYA MANGA SPECIALS!!! If you already like Byakuya now, hard to not absolutely love him seeing this stuff!

Funny thing is when I was watching Dr. Stone, I tried to have a "clock fuction" too sometimes, for example waited 10 mins for soup to be done, while talking to someone...ended up to seem as if musing over sth, but manadged to continue dialogue...somehow XD damn, so hard.... It is indeed an exaggeration, but it may kinda inspire viewers to try impossible in the future... it can boost their confidence in multitasking at least if nth else :D

Damn, now I have to read the manga, thank you very much XD But no worry, I will watch every single animated addaption of Dr. Stone, which will be available enough :3

Yup, nothing can get done without at least trying. I guess it isn't that much of an exaggeration since Senku is essentially a super computer and running multiple programs is quite simple.

You're welcome. Oh, if you do I can either create a separate discussion thread or the general manga discussion is probably the most accurate thing...but is still spoilers for those that haven't read it. 10 billion percent worth reading. Even without the Byakuya fandom, it expands a bunch on the astronauts, which is critical to how the main plot takes place.

Ooh, nice, that's always the best about manga, being more detailed and being further in the plot, will look into it, but can't promise to read it fast very much, I always prefered anime adaptations for quicker pace in the storytelling, sountracks and nice dynamics of movemets and such. How many ppl here actually read manga Dr. Stone? It would be awesome to have its own thread, but probably lonely, if there is so little of readers :(

Well, it would take even longer for it to get animated (hopefully it does!), so you could go at whatever pace works best for you. Most of the Dr. Stone fans are anime only (close to a dozen, but 5-6 active people). The manga is half of that, so the discussions are much shorter. Gotta get more people to join in on the series!
