posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
This year's 43rd issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine announced on Monday that Boichi and Riichirou Inagaki's Dr. Stone manga is entering its final arc. The magazine also stated the manga will be on a break in the 44th issue on October 4 so the authors can do research, and will return in the 45th issue on October 11.
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!
MANGA Plus is also publishing the manga digitally in English.
Dr. Stone: Stone Wars, the anime's second season, premiered in January. Crunchyroll streamed the series worldwide except in Asia, and Funimation streamed an English dub. The anime debuted on Toonami on May 15.
The anime will get a sequel.
