Dr. Stone Season 2 Release Date
The second season was confirmed after the release of the first season, but TMS Entertainment has not declared its release date yet. Most probably, it will be striking the screen sometime in 2020. I hope the current global situation due to the COVID-19 pandemic won’t let to its further delay.
The series depicted the condition of the world in 5738 A.D. A mysterious flash of light petrified the humans, leaving no trace of human civilization. But surprisingly, a 16 yr old boy Senku Ishigami revived back to life.
Senku started researching upon the dead humans to know the cause behind their death, and he found out that he was revived back to life because of nitric acid. He then developed a compound that could revive other dead humans. He brought back Taiju Oki, Yuzuriha Ogawa, and a famous martial artist named Tsukasa Shishio using that compound.
But reviving Tsukasa Shishio proved to be dangerous for Senku as Tsukasa did not want him to revive the humans and build a world of science. He wanted to develop a world full of power and strength where there won’t be any trace of petrified humans. Tsukasa became so obsessed with his goal that he even killed Senku and went ahead to achieve his goal.
But Senku revived from his near-death experience and came to know about a group of people still surviving on that planet. He, with his allies, fought with Tsukasa’s clan and ultimately got the victory. But his victory was short-lived after the emergence of a new enemy tribe known as the petrified kingdom.
The upcoming season is expected to bring forth more interesting twists, and we can see where the story will ultimately lead.
The voice cast include Yusuke Kobayashi as Senku, Makoto Furukawa as Taijo Oki, Kana Ichinose as Yuzuriha Ogawa, Yuichi Nakamura as Tsukasa Shishio etc.
