posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
This year's 40th issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine revealed on Monday the new theme song artists for the Dr. Stone anime. Rock band Pelican Fanclub will perform the new opening theme song "Sangenshoku" (Three Primary Colors), and Saeki YouthK (Yūsuke Saeki) will perform the ending theme song "Yume no Yō na" (Like a Dream). Both new songs will premiere in October with the show's second cours (quarter of a year).
The song will be Peilcan Fanclub's first collaboration with an anime. Saeki YouthK has previously performed theme songs for Yowamushi Pedal Glory Line, Yowamushi Pedal New Generation, Mr. Osomatsu, and Black Clover.
Viz Media describes the manga's first volume:
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!
Shinya Iino (storyboards, episode director on Hanebad!, Revue Starlight, Made in Abyss) is directing the anime at TMS Entertainment. Yuichiro Kido (episode scripts for Blue Exorcist: Kyoto Saga, After the Rain, 91 Days) is in charge of series composition and is writing the scripts. Yuko Iwasa (Saint Seiya: The Lost Canvas, Yowamushi Pedal) is designing the characters. Tatsuya Kato (WorldEnd, Revue Starlight), Hiroaki Tsutsumi (Children of the Whales, Anima Yell!), and Yuki Kanesaka (Blood Blockade Battlefront & Beyond insert songs) are composing the music. Burnout Syndromes (Gintama Season 4, Haikyu!! Second Season, Haikyu third season) are performing the current opening theme song "Good Morning World!," and Rude-α is performing the current ending theme song "LIFE."
The anime debuted on Adult Swim's Toonami programming block on August 24.
