posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Crunchyroll announced at its Crunchyroll Expo event on Friday that it will stream the second season of the television anime of Boichi and Riichirou Inagaki's Dr. Stone manga worldwide except in Asia. Crunchyroll also revealed a new promotional video and visual for the second season. Additionally, Funimation announced that it will stream an English dub of the second season in January.
The second season, Dr. Stone: Stone Wars, will premiere in January 2021.
Boichi (Sun-Ken Rock) and Inagaki (author of Eyeshield 21) launched the manga in Weekly Shonen Jump in March 2017. Viz Media is publishing the manga digitally and in print, and it 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) directed the first season at TMS Entertainment. Yuichiro Kido (episode scripts for Blue Exorcist: Kyoto Saga, After the Rain, 91 Days) was in charge of series composition and wrote the scripts. Yuko Iwasa (Saint Seiya: The Lost Canvas, Yowamushi Pedal) designed the characters. Tatsuya Kato (WorldEnd, Revue Starlight), Hiroaki Tsutsumi (Children of the Whales, Anima Yell!), and Yuki Kanesaka (Blood Blockade Battlefront & Beyond insert songs) composed the music.
Update: Visual, dub information added. Thanks to LegitPancake for the dub news tip.
