    Yeah, genetically, it's not a *problem* to breed with someone technically related to you but separated by several hundred generations (only even conceivable with some sci-fi preservation element), but you know they'd still make a joke or two about it in the story.

    But if Byakuya was a wandering survivalist leading a band of astronauts around the ruined world (well, buildings are still standing, but no people) 3700 years in the past, then why is Ishigami Village still at the, um, shithole stage of civilization? They know stories about Pikachu but they don't know what magnets are? Or how to turn grain into flour? The astronauts had some mixed-up priorities.

    Oh. Also- the oral tradition of the 100 Tales also tells us that there has to be a direct link to a person who was alive circa 2000 A.D. (and it has to be Byakuya himself, since the 100th story is his story!), which kind of rules out Byakuya planting the seeds for civilization but then dying before new generations were born/un-stoned.

    Yeah the text is pretty clear on this one. It's *all of humanity* on the *surface* of the earth. They even put emphasis dots in this latest chapter (on "earth's surface") to make the whole point about people in space.

    Maybe the tribe was bigger at some point, but it split and had a war, killing off most of the people and muddying the stories of the past.

    Maybe Byakuya wrote a diary that was passed around after his death, and then lost, and after that only oral traditions remained?

    I also wonder how many astronauts were in space at the moment of the stoning. There's the possibility mankind had advanced a little further than we have and they already had hundreds of people in space (which would make the return trip and inbreeding problem easier to solve). But so far their "past" has been indicated to be a lot like our modern day, aside from that whole stone incident.

    I mean, Trump in the White House could've just been a throwaway gag, but I like to pretend that's a canon indication that the petrification happened in 2017 in *our* reality with *our* current technology.

    ...Which admittedly puts a crimp in my cryo-sleep theory.

    I enjoy Dr. Stone and all, but can we get this story instead? It sounds great.

    "The Terrestrian"
    Andy Weir writes, featuring Matt Damon (w/Clooney, Sandra Bullock, McCounaughey, Neil deGrasse Tyson, and Hiroyuki Sanada as Byakuya); growing potatoes using human feces as fertilizer still features heavily.

    It seems like evry popular series gets it's own spin-off manga so maybe the Dr Stone spin off will cover Byakuya

Maybe people who were underground, or protected by certain materials? Or maybe their petrification wore off earlier.
    This is straight up Planet of the Apes minus the light speed time travel. I love it lol.

    Yeah. !
    I'm more than happy to admit I was wrong for an awesome development like this! Besides, I was still right about Magma being defeated in the semifinals to deviate from the shonen tournament formula. :P

And why is the village as small as it is when 3.7k years is enough time for something like 150 generations? Annnd...if Byakuya really founded the village weeks/months/even a few years after his space launch, wouldn't there still have been modern tech and buildings lying around? Not enough time for all of that to erode.

    All this evidence points to some anomaly in the timeline that we don't know about yet. Something that delayed Byakuya's founding of the village until, say, a few hundred years before the present (looking at the village, it's conceivable that 10-20 generations have come and gone). Narration tells us he didn't turn to stone in space, but maybe the astronauts went into cryo-sleep for a few...thousand years? Until...systems detected that latent magical radiation on earth had dissipated and it was safe to return? Something has to explain it.
    Oh boy, this might even be more like Planet of the Apes than I thought lol.

    Planet of the Apes without the... apes?

    ...That actually sounds a lot cooler than I thought!

    I usually read the official Viz translation on mondays but this thread was so lively that I went ahead this week. And I wasn't disappointed. A great answer and a number of new questions to solve. I wonder what this series brings next. It has been just great so far. This and Neverland have really revitalized Jump for me. Cheers y'all.

    If this delivers to all the space stations returning to earth and not just Senkuu's dad, i'm ok with this.
    Nothing exists; even if something exists, nothing can be known about it. Even if something can be known about it,
    knowledge about it can't be communicated to others

    Breaking news: official Dr. Stone twitter account posted a correction for today's chapter.
    The kanji in Byakuya's name shouldn't be "white-night" but rather, "hundred-night(s)".

    Plot implications ahoy? Or just a mild connection to "1001 Arabian Nights"?

    The ordinary rules of kanji pronunciation go out the window when it comes to names. Basically, any possible pronunciation that could ever exist in any context is fair game.

    I was pulling for a loose allusion to Chinese constellation white tiger thingy Byakko, but that seems less likely now :P

    So, hard incest or partial solutions to the stonification proces or soft incest delayed through making sure to maximize biodiversity with these 6 adults?

    It's a science series, and the question of "how a 6 person population can lead to a small village 3k years in the future" has to be addressed.

    Hmm. Well we know this hit everyone who was outside. But what about people in structures that had no exposure to air? Like deep inside buildings or underground?
