The fans of the Dr. Stone manga might not be delighted to hear this news. This week’s issue of the Weekly Shonen Jump came not only with a new Dr. Stone chapter but also with a sad piece of news. The statement from the editorial department of the manga read that story will not return with a new chapter in the coming week. The notice also mentioned the reason behind this uncalled hiatus. Since then, fans have been asking about the release of the next chapter. So, why is the manga on hiatus? When will the next chapter release? Here is all you need to know about it.
The Dr. Stone manga has been relentlessly releasing chapters since the first launch. Only at the times of Saga breaks did the author call in for a hiatus. Thus, this uncalled break is inducing suspicion of a new manga arc. The manga’s pace has also seemed to increase since the many past chapters. Hence, it is likely that the manga might enter the finale of the story very soon
Dr. Stone Manga: Why The Hiatus?
The 43rd issue of Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump came out with the statement that the upcoming chapter of Dr. Stone will not release the next issue. This implied that Dr. Stone Chapter 213 is going to be on a hiatus. The statement also clarified that the break would not last longer than a week. Thus, the 44th issue of the Weekly Shonen Jump will return with the regular release of chapters. In the note, the editor of the manga wrote that Dr. Stone is about to enter its final arc in a few chapters. Thus, writers Riichiro Inagaki and Boichi need some time to complete their research before beginning the Final arc of the story.
What To Expect From The Final Arc?
The Dr. Stone manga is currently at a very crucial point in the story. So far, Senkuu and his research team have successfully built the launch rocket to the moon. Now, the team will begin its quest to the planet. According to Senku’s research, a man named Why-Man is responsible for the freezing of all the people on Earth. Thus, he will visit the perpetrator and undo his petrification over the people of Earth. The final arc of the story will be called “Final Part: Stone To Space.” This will be the last arc of the ‘Source of Petrification Saga.’ In this act, Senku and his team finally begin their quest to the moon.
There, they will meet with the Why-Man and confront him about the reason for the petrification. Moreover, fans can also expect to learn more about the antagonist of the story before they are defeated by the Earth’s heroes. But before that, Senku and the space crew will encounter several hurdles on their way to the moon. The technical issues with the Medusa and the lack of fuel might turn out to be solid trouble for the team. Later on, the final chapters will deal with the unfreezing of human civilization
