Story of Dr. Stone

Dr. Stone: New World

Dr. Stone is set in a world where humanity has been turned to stone due to an unexplainable phenomenon. In the far future, a genius by the name of Senku manages to escape his petrification and finds himself in these new surroundings devoid of humanity.

Rather than feeling fear, however, Senku resolves himself to restore civilization using his scientific prowess. His path is far from easy as he will face several enemies who have their own objectives and wish to stop Senku’s progress.

With a mixture of action, adventure and science, Dr. Stone is one of the most popular anime to come out in the new generation.

The Dr. Stone anime is based on the manga which ended in 2022 with 233 chapters. Currently, there are worries that there is too much content left to animate since an accurate manga adaptation will require at least 35 – 40 episodes in the anime.

These can either be fulfilled by splitting the final season up into several parts or having a 24 episode season followed by a special episode or a movie.

Fans will be hoping that these are the potential outcomes and the series does not choose to rush its ending or skip out on material.
