Dr. STONE is based on the hit weekly Shonen Jump manga written by Riichiro Inagaki and illustrated by Boichi. The series picks up thousands of years after a cataclysmic event petrifies the world’s population. Following two main characters who free themselves from stone, Senku Ishigami and Taiju Ōki, Dr. STONE is a story of science versus might in the quest to rebuild civilization.
The manga has been a smash hit worldwide with more than 480,000 volumes sold since July 2017 in Japan alone. New episodes of the Dr. STONE anime premiere every Friday morning on Crunchyroll, the world’s most popular anime brand.
