    Has anyone read this yet? I went in with low expectations, but came out wanting to see what happens next. The main character was interesting and the set up to things to come has got this on my manga to follow list.

    Art is nice and detailed, story is a tad simplistic but that's to be expected for a first chapter. Kinda gives me the same vibes the first chapter of Dr Stone so I'm gonna keep an eye on it and see how it develops.

    I liked this a lot. Like the style of the art. The typical variety of characters, but that makes them no less interesting to me. Wonder how long the story will stick with Dadaa and Lulu and young Akuu (name makes me think of Samurai Jack). Will this be a growing up story with the child and his family or jump to an older Akuu?
    Well...a more serious look at a culture similar to that of Dr. Stone (which I just can't take completely seriously).

    The art was simply fantastic. I love it!

    The setup was simple but effective. Can’t wait to see more. Hopefully MS doesn’t drop this.

    Has similarities to Dr Stone and to you the immortal but the artwork man is so detailed shits on any wsj manga atm:mjlol Hopefully the pacing of the story gets faster though because it hasn't even begun yet.

    Things are proceeding pretty much as I expected--it was obvious that Akuu was going to be the focus of the story. I still like it in spite of the blatant influence of Naruto on the plot line.

    I wonder what' going to be Akuu's Pain moment :thunk. I wish they would'e had Dadaa still his normal self and Akuu trying to break away from Dadaa's shadow, instead of the I was the best player of (insert sport here) until I blew out my knee

    Man that's a disappointingly stereotypical and mediocre second chapter.

    It is where it goes from here that matters. Akuu's pain moment could arrive with the new baby and what happens immediately after.

    These villagers sure seem nice. I am totally willing to accept these as good guys when they finally reveal their sob stories and instate him as hokage.


    Nah, kidding. Art is good, premise is meh but as long as he doesnt start talking to his inner hollow tails 666 Satan monster I am good.

    Akuu is the MC. His eventual acceptance and catapult to hero status is inevitable.

    This could either turn really interesting, or mediocre and unoriginal. At least the setting and art are nice so far. Naruto meets Lion King meets cliches in prehistory!

    The people of that village are assholes though, jeez. They should be grateful to Akuu's dad for what he does and has done for them.

    He did what the priest and his 'sun god' wanted from him though. He killed the rhino. So it's not like he went against the village's wishes

    Dadaa is almost too interesting to be a secondary character.

    So, straight up Stonage fiction or will there be a postapoyalyptic/alien slave colony/ simulated reality tv show plot twist?

    didn't anticipate the deathcount. Nice. Feels early Gantz, with cocky dudes confronting prehistorc mopnsters, manhandling them and then getting wiped.

    To be expected. That old elder has a grudge against him.

    Love how the artist makes the animals look angry and realistic at the same time.
