Dr. Stone is one of Shonen Jump’s most successful manga recently together with The Promised Neverland and My Hero Academia. My Hero Academia recently finished its third season while The Promised Neverland is going to release its first episode January next year. In the latest issue of Shonen Jump, Dr. Stone anime announcement and the release date are finally released.
Dr. Stone Anime Release Date
In the latest issue of Shonen Jump, the Dr. Stone anime was announced, with a colored art and a release date. The colored art (as seen below) features all the relevant characters on the manga and putting Tsukasa in under the Kingdom of Science. The release date of the anime is also revealed to be around July 2019. There’s still no news about the specific release date, the number of episodes, and how many chapters would be adapted. It’s kinda interesting to see how Boichi’s art would be animated.
In addition, Yuusuke Kobayashi, who is the voice of Arslan in The Heroic Legend Of Arslan, Subaru Natsuki in Re:Zero kara Haijimeru Isekai Seikatsu, and Zenji Marui in Food Wars will be voicing Senku Ishigami. There is still no news about the other characters’ voice actors.
Dr. Stone anime announcement is not surprising as it was seen coming even before. Fans from Reddit are hoping that the studio who will be handling the production could make justice of Boichi’s art. They are also speculating that the first season might be 23 – 24 episodes and covering the first arc of the series. Hopefully, they would cover the starting chapters up to the end of the second arc where Senku plans to petrify Tsukasa to prevent his death.
Dr. Stone chapter 83 is released today, and it seems like Senku and the crew are going to explore the sea to better understand the petrification beam. There’s a lot of risks that they will encounter, including the risk that they will be petrified before going home.
