When a mysterious light suddenly engulfs Earth, humanity is left petrified, frozen in stone. Thousands of years later, the world is teeming with vegetation, and forests have taken the places of cities that once stood proudly. One of the very first to emerge from their stone prison is Taiju Ooki, who finds that his good friend, a brilliant young scientist named Senkuu, has been preparing for his awakening. While Taiju wishes to save the girl he loves, Senkuu is determined to figure out the cause behind the strange phenomenon and restore the world to its former glory.

But when they free the infamously powerful Tsukasa Shishiou in order to gain an upper hand against the dangers in an unfamiliar world, they realize that their new comrade has other plans. Tsukasa sees their predicament as a chance to start over; free from the corruption and destruction wrought by technology, he will stop at nothing to achieve his goals. With both sides unable to see eye to eye, Senkuu and his devotion to science will clash with Tsukasa and his primal nature in what will truly be a battle of the ages.

Chapter 148 is out!: https://www.viz.com/shonenjump/dr-stone ... ction=read

148
The scenes in San Francisco are kinda chilling... don't think I'll ever get used to seeing the piles of stone bodies.

The all star fight lineup is HYPE though, I guess our guys don't have to worry about meat shortages.

The corn city begins, exciting times!

Woah, do we not get notifications for responses? Are we using this as the manga discussion thread? I guess I want to clarify so I use a spoiler tag.

Chapter 149: https://www.viz.com/shonenjump/dr-stone ... ction=read

Spoiler
So it looks like Senku finally has a rival that can compete with him in his arena... i wonder how this is going to go.

I wonder, can Senku speak English?

I'm really liking this expansion. Right off the bat, if they created machine guns, they are more advanced than Senku with metal working and potentially mass producing (bullets at least). And if that's the case, we can have multiple spaceships going to take on Why-man.

I'm really curious to know about the man with the machine gun.

- I need to know if he indeed woke up by himself like Senku, and if yes, how did it happen? It hasn't even been explained how Senku woke up on his own, while other people needed to be woken up with the 'miracle liquid.'

- Machine gun. Just how? It's hard to think one person could build a machine gun without any help. Is it safe to assume there could be a few others? It'd be really interesting if we have some Americans on their team lol.

So naturally, our new science rival is ahead of Team Senku... but if the gang can either repair or reverse engineer the plane, that’s a big boost right out of the bat.

The pilot reporting back to American Senku has a very Russian Mafia vibe to her... scary!

It had to be luck where they were close to a bat cave (exact same situation as Senku in Japan). So based on the ability to create a machine gun, the American scientist(s) went through the exact same experiments as Senku. Since they didn't have a war against Tsukasa, they had time to create more advanced machinery for parts/metal working.

[mention]Marco Polo[/mention] The war against Tsukasa explains the "lag" behind the American side.

But chapter 150 spoilers:
Damn...I did not expect Senku to be WAY behind. The American scientists having a legit plane?! Sure Senku should have all the knowledge to repair the clogged engine (I don't know the chemistry, but I'm assuming he just has to clear the entire engine out).

They don't have bullets though and don't have the machinery to make working bullets right now. This chapter creates potential "light" but actually creates more questions. Kaseki has to make new stuff to mass produce modern bullets (vs. centuries old bullets).

Wait...the lady isn't the "smart" one?! She knows the chemistry off the top of her head?! Senku is outnumbered too now (not the 1v1 he thinks it is). This likely explains how the American side got so far ahead of Senku.

Yeah I wouldn’t be surprised if they had a science “team” that was bigger in numbers and ahead in knowledge compared to Senku and Chrome.

Also, why do i have a feeling the American science user’s going to be a kid? I feel like tension’s being thrown in to the mix for us to be totally disarmed when the science user’s face is actually revealed
