Dr. STONE is an anime adaptation of a Japanese sci-fi adventure manga series, written by Riichiro Inagaki and illustrated by Boichi, which was serialized in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine from March 2017 to July 2022.

The popular manga has a total of 26 volumes.

The manga was also published simultaneously in English and other languages through digital manga services such as Viz Media’s Shonen Jump and Shueisha’s Manga Plus.


Shueisha describes the manga series:

One fateful day, all of humanity was petrified by a blinding flash of light. After several millennia, high schooler Taiju awakens and finds himself lost in a world of statues. However, he’s not alone! His science-loving friend Senku’s been up and running for a few months and he’s got a grand plan in mind—to kickstart civilization with the power of science!


Shuhei Matsushita, who took over directorial duties of the anime series since Dr. STONE: Ryusui special, will return to direct the third season.

In addition to Matsushita, other staff members will also return to work on the upcoming season, including scriptwriter Yuichiro Kido, character designer Yuko Iwasa and music composer Hiroaki Tsutsumi, which will be animated by TMS Entertainment.


Yusuke Kobayashi, who portrayed Arslan in The Heroic Legend of Arslan anime series, will return to voice lead character “Senku”, with One-Punch Man voice actor Makoto Furukawa returning to voice Senku’s best friend “Taiju Oki”.

Popular voice actor Maaya Sakamoto (Ciel Phantomhive, Black Butler anime) will join this season’s voice cast as François.
