The latest Shonen Jump manga to make the leap to anime is Riichiro Inagaki and Boichi’s Dr. Stone, which officially hits the airwaves in July 2019. Now we have our first peek at the adaptation thanks to this weekend’s Jump Festa ’19 event, which presented the first teaser promo along with a new visual and some cast additions.
Here’s who’s joining the cast:
- Taiju Oki – Makoto Furukawa (One Punch-Man‘s Saitama)
- Yuzuriha Ogawa – Kana Ichinose (DARLING in the FRANXX‘s Ichigo)
- Tsukasa Shishio – Yuichi Nakamura (Fairy Tail‘s Gray)
Viz Media, who publishes the manga in North America, sums up the story:
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!
