Comment from author Riichiro Inagaki:
I will be supervising all the scripts! It will follow closely with the original work, right down to the dialogue, though there will be some additional scenes. How will the animation look in a world where all the human have been petrified for thousands of years? I cannot wait!!
Comment from illustrator Boichi:
I would like to learn a lot from the anime version of “Dr. Stone” and then make a better “Dr. Stone”! I would like to use this opportunity to learn and grow. I am looking forward to anime!!
