posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
The prehistoric science of Dr. Stone will come to life at an exhibition in Tokyo this month. The "Experimenting with Manga: AGC MEETS Dr. Stone" exhibition will take over the AGC Studio on July 20. AGC (Asahi Glass Japan) is the largest glass company in the world and manufacturers both glass products and chemicals. The exhibition will make science approachable by incorporating real experiments into the world of Dr. Stone.
The organizers have recreated protagonist Senku's lab as the primary test site. Participants can try on the mask worn by Suika or head to the "Glass Record" area to listen to the anime's theme songs using a glass speaker. Other areas include a power generator and an original artwork gallery where a stained glass version of Senku can be viewed.
