Shonen Jump has given us plenty of manga which later went on to become iconic anime. From classics like Dragon Ball and Fist of the North Star to more contemporary ones like One Piece and Naruto, the magazine churns out classics every time. And now, it seems like another manga from that legendary magazine is getting an anime adaptation. This time, it’s Riichirou Inagaki and Boichi’s Dr. Stone manga.

They made the announcement in the magazine’s 51st issue for the year 2018, and revealed it will premiere in July 2019. Jump also announced the Yuusuke Kobayashi will be in the lead role as Senku.
Boichi served as the artist of the highly-popular Sun-Ken Rock manga, while Inagaki wrote Eye Shield 21. Viz releases the manga in English, and here’s how they describe its 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!
