Senku Tops Shonen Jump's Dr. Stone Popularity Polls
posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
The Shonen Jump manga series Dr. Stone stars a prodigy scientist and his good-natured friend as they attempt to resurrect petrified humanity and zoom forward from the stone age to modern era. Shonen Jump held a poll in Japan and America to find out which characters top reader's favorite list. Weekly Shonen Jump published the results in this year's 35th issue on Monday and Viz Media published both the Japanese and English versions of the poll on its blog on Monday.
Both results have the scientist Senku as the number one choice but results start to differ from there. Sailing expert Ryusui Nanami is the second choice in Japan's results but he only #9 in Viz's poll. Gen Asagiri took third place in both polls. Here's the full results:
