Dr Stone Anime Spot On The Top Of Popularity List

Recently, Shonen Jump held a poll in Japan as well as in America, to find out which characters are favourites for manga readers. The Weekly Shonen Jump, published the results in this year’s 35th issue on Monday. Viz Media published both the Japanese and English versions of the poll on its blog. Viz publishes the blog about the result on Monday. Here how the result goes-

  2. Chrome
  3. Gen
  4. Kohaku
  5. Suika
  6. Kaseki
  7. Taiju
  8. Tsukasa
  9. Ryusui
  10. Yuzuriha

Besides this, Anime News Network put a special tweet regarding this poll.


Surprisingly Senku of Dr Stone tops both polls. Scientist Senku may be the number one choice for both polls, but after Senku, the results start to differ. Sailing expert Ryusui Nanami is the second choice in Japan’s results but he stood 9 in Viz’s poll. Gen Asagiri took third place in both polls. So, results aren’t the same but our mad scientist got 1st position in both of the polls. 

Dr Stone Plot
