The Manga series of the 2000s were defined by action. The shinobi subterfuge of Naruto, the bonkers bankai of Bleach and One Piece’s enduring silliness provided for some fantastic spectacle in the pages of Shonen Jump. The genre is still alive and well, but there’s a new kid on the Shonen block who is giving readers something that they’ve seldom seen: An education. One of the most popular manga series currently out, Dr Stone by Inagaki Riichiro and Boichi is some of the most damn fun you can have with seeing the power of science in a brave new world.
