posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
This year's 14th issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine published the final chapter on Monday of Boichi and Riichirou Inagaki's Dr. Stone manga. The 13th issue had teased the manga would reach its climax in the 14th issue.
The manga's 25th volume shipped in Japan on March 4, and the 26th and final volume will ship on July 4. In addition, the manga will get a new chapter in Weekly Shonen Jump around the same time the Dr. Stone: Ryusui special airs this summer.
The manga entered its final arc in September 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!
MANGA Plus is also publishing the manga digitally in English.
Dr. Stone: Stone Wars, the anime's second season, premiered in January 2021. Crunchyroll streamed the series worldwide except in Asia, and Funimation streamed an English dub. The anime debuted on Toonami in May 2021.
The anime will get a third season that will premiere in 2023, and will also get a television anime special titled Dr. Stone: Ryusui that will premiere this summer. The special will be set after Dr. Stone: Stone Wars, and will center on Ryusui.
