For those keeping track, the anime’s first quarter aired from April 6, culminating with its 11th episode. Crunchyroll played host to the Japanese broadcast as well as an English-dubbed version. The series also found its way onto Adult Swim’s Toonami programming on June 3.
In an exciting casting addition, Maaya Sakamoto joined the ensemble as Francois. Crunchyroll succinctly outlines the narrative direction of the new series:
“Following the conclusion of the Stone Wars, the prodigious minds from Tsukasa’s Empire of Might have united with the Kingdom of Science. Their shared mission? Construct a seaworthy vessel, embarking on an expedition across the open ocean in pursuit of answers concerning the enigmatic global petrification event. But before they can embark, Senku and his comrades must first secure vital resources and push the boundaries of scientific progress to craft the ideal ship.”
To rewind a bit, the inaugural TV anime premiered in July 2019, with Crunchyroll taking charge of global streaming alongside Funimation’s English-dubbed version. Toonami audiences were treated to the show’s debut in August 2019.
Subsequently, “Dr. Stone: Stone Wars,” the show’s second season, made its debut in January 2021. Crunchyroll catered to international viewership, excluding Asia, while Funimation brought forth the English-dubbed edition. Toonami viewers got their chance to delve into the series in May 2021.
