Riichiro Inagaki and Boichi's Dr. Stone is one of the manga currently making waves in Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump and its going to continue making these waves with a new anime coming next year.

After debuting a cool, but brief teaser trailer during Jump Festa 2019, the Dr. Stone anime kept the awesomeness going with a fierce poster of one of the main characters Senku as he breaks out of his initial stone prison.

Scheduled for a release in July 2019, and produced by TMS Entertainment, the series stars Yusuke Kobayashi as Senku Ishigami (Subaru in Re:Zero -Starting Life in Another World-), Makoto Furukawa as Taiju Oki (Saitama in One-Punch Man), Kana Ichinose as Yuzuriha Ogawa, and Yuichi Nakamura as Tsukasa Shishio. The first poster for the series highlights Senku, much like the first teaser for the series, but this poster reveals a nice look at him breaking out of his stone statue prison toward the beginning of the series.

Dr. Stone was originally created by Riichiro Inagaki with illustrations provided by Boichi for Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump in 2017. The series follows two boys (initially) as they try and save a world that's been completely petrified in stone. The series has so far been collected into seven volumes since it's release, and Viz Media has licensed the series for an English language release.

For fans unaware of this series, it's got a lot that should get your attention right away. The writer of the series, Riichiro Inagaki, also created Eyeshield 21. The series was a huge hit in its heyday, and has has been famous in its own right for also featuring the talents of illustrator Yusuke Murata -- who has gone on to illustrate for such projects as One-Punch Man. Dr. Stone has a strong illustrator too in Boichi, who's previously created Sun-Ken Rock. It's no mystery as to why this new series has been such a hit, so quickly.

Viz Media describes the series as such:

"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!"
