Simulcasting on Crunchyroll starting this summer, we will also be inviting some special guests from Japan for a Q&A session with the fans!
Dr. Stone follows Senku Ishigami, who finds himself awakened several thousand years after a cataclysmic event that turned all of humanity to stone. Ishigami is a big fan of science, so he sets out to save the human race through the scientific process.
He finds that his best friend from childhood has also been awakened, and the two of them start working on bringing anyone else they can back from the stone state they’ve been entombed in.
The series claims to depict two million years of scientific discovery, from the Stone Age to modern times.
This is a great time to get a Crunchyroll subscription, to be honest. They have an amazing amount of new and classic anime series available, as well as a ton of Manga. You can even check out gen:LOCK from Rooster Teeth, a fantastically fun mecha mayhem show!
