Dr. Stone (Japanese: , Hepburn: Dokut? Sut?n) is a Japanese manga series written by Riichiro Inagaki and illustrated by Boichi, serialized in Weekly Sh?nen Jump since March 6, 2017 with the individual chapters collected and published by Shueisha into thirteen tank?bon volumes as of November 2019.

Viz Media licensed the manga in North America. Shueisha began to simulpublish the series in English on the website and app Manga Plus since January 2019.

An anime television series adaptation by TMS Entertainment aired from July 2019 to December 2019. A second season of the anime series focused on the "Stone Wars" arc of the manga series was announced at the end of the final and 24th episode of the first season.


3,700 years after a mysterious flash of light petrified the human population, a teenage genius named Senku Ishigami revives to find himself in a world where all traces of human civilization have been eroded by time. Senku learns his revival was possible with nital, reviving his friend Taiju Oki and their classmate Yuzuriha Ogawa to rebuild their civilization. But Senku also revived martial artist Tsukasa Shishio, who opposes Senku's intent and resolves to create a new world free from the old generation's corruption. This escalated into a Stone War between Senku's Kingdom of Science, gaining allies in a tribe of humans he learned are descendants of his father and five astronauts who returned to Earth following its petrification, and the Empire of Might Tsukasa established with those he revived. After Senku's group wins, the group end up facing a new enemy in a tribe known as the Petrification Kingdom.
