Dr. STONE reboot

To be honest, I find it a bit hard to talk about Dr. STONE Reboot: Byakuya right now after reading the recent chapter of Dr. STONE on MANGA Plus.

Well, I do read Dr. STONE. But I never follow the manga closely on MANGA Plus since I’m reading the print version of the manga.

And knowing that the print version of the manga is somewhat lagging behind the latest chapter on MANGA Plus, I didn’t bother to read it until now.

Don’t worry, I won’t spoil you with what just happened in the latest chapter. So, let’s just hope that things will turn out for the better.

Now I wish that I didn’t even read that chapter at all.

What Dr. STONE Reboot: Byakuya is all about

Here’s the book description that I got from MANGA Plus.

What did humanity’s final astronaut, Byakuya Ishigami, do when he saw everyone on earth turn to stone from the international space station? A special side story written and drawn by Boichi Sensei himself! The first simultaneous series and side story serialization in Weekly Shonen Jump history!

What got me to read this manga

Duh, it’s Dr. STONE. So, how can I not read the manga?

Besides the manga being Dr. STONE, I’m also curious about the manga too since the manga came out not long after Senku found out about the origin of the people who live in Ishigami Village.

Since I already watched the anime at that time, I figure that maybe I should give this manga a try.

What makes Dr. STONE Reboot: Byakuya worth reading

Remember the part where Byakuya and the rest of the people who are in ISS saw the petrification that took place on Earth from space?

Well, the story in Dr. STONE Reboot: Byakuya takes place during that event.

Sure, the story in the main manga already explained how things unfold from there.

But unlike the story in the main manga, the spin-off manga goes into much greater detail on everything that happened on that day when they decided to return to Earth.

The good news is the spin-off manga isn’t that much different from the main one where you’ll get tons of scientific explanations on the solution to the problem.

The only difference is the manga is short since it only has 9 chapters in total.

What I didn’t expect when I read the manga

If you’ve been reading Dr. STONE manga for quite sometimes already, I’m sure that you’re already aware that some part of the story can be heartwarming.

Well, guess what? The story in Dr. STONE Reboot: Byakuya is just as heartwarming as the main one.

In fact, I will say that it’s a lot more heartwarming than the main one since the story then switched to Rei, a robot created by Byakuya who was left behind in the space station.

Since Byakuya promised him that humanity would return to space someday, Rei was doing everything he could to maintain the space station so then Byakuya could come back there again.

He even went as far as forgoing all the resources that he could use to repair himself in order to maintain the space station.

It’s too bad that he had no idea about the human lifespan. So, he’s been maintaining the space station on his own this whole time for thousands of years.

I won’t spoil you on how the story will end. But suffice to say that the story in the spin-off manga is just as heartwarming as the main one.

Who should read this manga

It will be much easier for you to understand the story in Dr. STONE Reboot: Byakuya if you already read the main one or you already watched the anime.

If you’re new to the manga, then I highly recommend you to read the main manga first before you read this one.

The good news is you don’t have to catch up to the latest chapter just to read this manga. You can start reading this manga right after reading Chapter 46.
