Comments from Yuko Iwasa (character designer for the Dr. Stone anime)
It’s fun drawing Kohaku’s cool expressions and actions. I took care to recreate her silhouette from the manga. In the character settings used at the studio, I drew a variety of her facial expressions. I hope you can expect a lot from her expressions which change very often.
Like Kohaku, it’s fun drawing a variety of expressions for this character. I really can’t wait to see the scenes with him interacting with Senku and the others. His expressions and such are probably the most protagonist-like of all the show’s characters.
I really like cool characters like this, which made him quite easy to draw. His facial expression doesn’t really change much, but I like how he will pull the odd comical expression now and again. His interactions with his brother are also pretty fun to do.
It’s great to have a sleazeball like this. His expressions change the most of any character, so it’s really fun to draw him. I want you to look forward to the rare cool scenes that he has.
