Dr. STONE is the Most Innovative (Real) Science Anime Ever

Hey Anime Lovers,

If you are a fan of anime and science, you might have heard of Dr. STONE, a series that follows the adventures of Senku Ishigami, a teenage genius who wakes up in a world where humanity has been petrified by a mysterious phenomenon. Senku decides to use his (vast) scientific knowledge to rebuild civilization, revive his friends, and save humanity from petrification, while facing various challenges and enemies along the way.

Dr. STONE is not your typical anime. It is not based on magic, fantasy, or supernatural elements. It is based on real science, or at least as close as possible to real science. The series showcases the power and beauty of science in a creative and entertaining way, while also teaching the viewers some interesting facts and concepts.

Dr. STONE is the Most Innovative (Real) Science Anime Ever

Right now, Dr. STONE anime has reached season 3 part 2 and is airing in this 2023 fall (as of this writing). I’m excited to share my thoughts and opinions on this amazing anime show with you all!

In this first special anime blog post, I will share with you 7 things that make Dr. STONE the most innovative (real) science anime ever. These are ranked based on my personal opinion and preference. I hope you enjoy reading this post and start to watch this special anime (if you haven’t watched it yet).

1. The Original and Intriguing Premise

The premise of Dr. STONE is one of the most original and intriguing I have ever seen in an anime. Imagine waking up in a world where everyone has been turned into stone statues for thousands of years. How would you survive? How would you find your friends? How would you restore civilization? These are the questions that Senku and his allies have to answer as they embark on their journey.

The premise also sets up a fascinating contrast between the old and the new, the primitive and the modern, the natural and the artificial. The series explores how science can be used to create wonders and miracles, but also how it can be misused and abused for evil purposes. It also shows how science can coexist with other aspects of human culture, such as art, religion, and morality.

2. The Diverse and Likeable Characters

Dr. STONE has a large cast of characters, each with their own personality, background, skills, and goals. The characters are diverse in terms of age, gender, ethnicity, appearance, and role. They are also likable and relatable, as they have their own strengths and weaknesses, hopes and fears, dreams and regrets.

Some of the main characters include:

Senku Ishigami: The main protagonist and leader of the Kingdom of Science. He is a genius who loves science and has a vast knowledge of various fields. He is determined to revive humanity and rebuild civilization using science. He is also charismatic, optimistic, and humorous.

Taiju Oki: Senku’s best friend and loyal follower. He is a strong and brave young man who has a crush on Yuzuriha Ogawa, his childhood friend. He is not very smart, but he makes up for it with his muscle power, endurance and enthusiasm.

Yuzuriha Ogawa: Taiju’s childhood friend and love interest. She is a kind and gentle girl who has a talent for crafts and design. She helps Senku with his projects by making clothes, statues, and other items.

Tsukasa Shishio: The main antagonist and leader of the Empire of Might. He is a powerful martial artist who was known as the strongest high school primate before the petrification. He opposes Senku’s vision of reviving everyone, as he believes that only the young and pure should inherit the new world. He wants to create a world without science, where only physical strength matters.

Chrome: A self-proclaimed sorcerer who lives in Ishigami Village, a primitive settlement founded by Senku’s father after he was revived by accident. He is curious about the world and has collected various minerals and substances that he uses for his experiments. He becomes Senku’s apprentice and friend after learning about science from him.

Kohaku: A warrior girl who belongs to Ishigami Village. She is the daughter of the village chief and the sister of Ruri, the village priestess who suffers from a mysterious illness. She is strong, brave, loyal, and compassionate. She develops feelings for Senku after he saves her life.

Gen Asagiri: A mentalist who was hired by Tsukasa to spy on Senku’s group. He is a cunning and manipulative person who can read people’s minds and emotions. He is also a fan of modern culture and entertainment, such as manga, music, and movies. He defects to Senku’s side after being impressed by his inventions.

3. The Science Is Real, Accurate and Educational

One of the most impressive aspects of Dr. STONE is how accurate and educational the science is. The series does not shy away from explaining the scientific principles behind each invention or discovery that Senku makes, such as electricity, gunpowder, antibiotics, glassmaking, radio communication, etc.

The series also provides some historical and cultural context for each scientific achievement, such as how and when they were first developed, who were the pioneers and innovators, and how they changed the world. The series also acknowledges the limitations and challenges of science, such as the ethical dilemmas, the environmental impacts, and the social conflicts.

The series does not only teach science, but also inspires science. It shows how science can be fun, creative, and rewarding. It encourages the viewers to be curious, to ask questions, to experiment, to learn, and to share. It also shows how science can be used to solve problems, to help others, to improve lives, and to make dreams come true.

4. The Witty and Hilarious Humor (with So Many Comedy Situations)

Dr. STONE is not only a serious and educational anime, but also a hilarious and witty one. The series is full of humor that comes from various sources, such as the characters’ personalities, interactions, reactions, expressions, and dialogues.

The series also makes use of various types of humor, such as sarcasm, irony, parody, satire, slapstick, wordplay, puns, references, etc. The series does not take itself too seriously and often breaks the fourth wall by addressing the audience or making jokes about the anime industry.

The humor in Dr. STONE is not only funny but also smart and relevant. It adds to the charm and appeal of the series and makes it more enjoyable and memorable.

5. The Stunning and Detailed Animation

Dr. STONE has a stunning and detailed animation that matches the quality and style of the original manga. The series has a vibrant and colorful palette that contrasts the dark and bleak setting of the petrified world. The series also has a realistic and detailed depiction of the natural scenery, such as the forests, mountains, rivers, caves, etc.

The series also has a dynamic and fluid animation that captures the action and movement of the characters and objects. The series also has a creative and expressive use of visual effects, such as lighting, shadows, sparks, smoke, etc.

The animation in Dr. STONE is not only beautiful but also meaningful. It enhances the mood, atmosphere, and conveys the emotions of the theme and story.

6. ONE SMALL STEP, A Powerful Song by Laura Pitt-Pulford (aka Lilian Weinberg)

Dr. STONE has 1 powerful and cool song that summarizes everything Senku and his friends are doing to restore humanity and civilization from petrification.

This great song gets a special place here as something that has a big influence on the anime and also on the audience, which is a refinement of the other 6 things.

One Small Step, performed by Laura Pitt-Pulford (Lilian Weinberg in anime) is one of the most inspirational dan very memorable song. One Small Step song will surely make you excited and cry at the same time.

This song adds so much to the enjoyment and immersion of the series and expresses the feelings and messages of the story.

7. The Profound and Universal Themes

Dr. STONE has some profound and universal themes that resonate with the viewers on a deeper level. Some of the themes include:

Science vs Nature: The series explores how science can be used to understand and manipulate nature, but also how nature can resist and challenge science.
