Dr. Stone may be the name of a podiatrist somewhere around the globe, but in the world of anime, he is one of the newest heroes to emerge and win the hearts of fans. Based on the manga, “Dr. Stone” is set thousands of years in the future, after a strange catastrophe has transformed nearly all of humanity into stone. Then, one day, Senku, a young genius, is resurrected. It is not long before his old comrade Taiju does the same, and together they work on a way to resuscitate the rest of humanity when they are not fending for their lives against lions and toxic gases.
The science may not always make sense, but that is irrelevant when the plot is so captivating. Numerous mysteries have been left unresolved throughout the previous two seasons, but a new trailer confirms that more will be revealed in Season 3, which is set to premiere shortly. Here are some things to anticipate in Season 3 of “Dr. Stone.”
What’s the Release Date for Dr. Stone Season 3?
Season 1 of “Dr. Stone” premiered in the summer of 2019, and Season 2 will premiere approximately a year and a half later, at the start of 2021. Without an official release date, it would make the most sense for Season 3 to follow the same pattern as previous seasons and be released in the spring or summer of 2022. However, things could change between now and then. While the Season 3 teaser for “Dr. Stone” promises an epic journey on the open sea, there is no indication of when these episodes will air.
When new episodes do become available, those living in the United States will have to wait a bit longer to view them. The episodes initially air in Japan, with the English dubs premiering on Toonami afterward. When either release date becomes available, Looper will be the first to inform you.
Who’s in the Cast for Dr. Stone Season 3?
In Season 3, the voice cast for both dubs of “Dr. Stone” is set to remain essentially the same. That means Yûsuke Kobayashi (“Food Wars”) and Makoto Furukawa (“One Punch Man”) will provide their voices to Senku and Taiju, respectively, in the Japanese dub. Aaron Dismuke (“Fullmetal Alchemist”) provided the voice of Senku for the English dubs, and Ricco Fajardo gave life to Taiju (“Sky Wizard Academy”).
Manami Numakura, Gen Satô, and Ayumu Murase are three additional Japanese voice actors who are anticipated to reprise their roles for “Dr. Stone” Season 3. Among the recurring English voice performers are Brandon McInnis, Felecia Angelle, and Brittany Lauda. Given that Season 3 appears to be taking the characters into new, unexplored territory (both physically and symbolically), viewers should anticipate the addition of fresh faces and voices.
What’s the Plot for Dr. Stone Season 3?
If you watched the “Dr. Stone” Season 3 trailer, you could be forgiven for thinking you stumbled upon a lost episode of “One Piece,” but rest assured, the teaser was only signaling that Senku and his companions will embark on a maritime adventure next. This suggests that the anime will follow the manga and adapt the “Age of Exploration” arc next, as reported by ComicBook.com. This is when they construct the magnificent ship Perseus and set sail around the world in search of additional information regarding what caused humanity to turn to stone. Along the process, they come up with a plethora of more technologies that assist them to get humanity back on track.
The manga has been ongoing since 2017 and shows no signs of stopping shortly. Riichiro Inagaki, in an interview with Anime News Network, remarked, “Regarding the conclusion, I am unsure, although this is not necessarily relevant to the tale. We have a general notion of how the story will conclude, but as we’ve progressed on this journey, we’ve occasionally taken three steps ahead and two steps back… but I’m determined to see it through to the finish. I can guarantee that I will never stretch it out for business purposes.”
The third season of “Dr. Stone” may not continue indefinitely like some other anime, but we’re ready to wager that it’s not the end for fans.
