Based on the manga series by Riichiro Inagaki, illustrated by Boichi, and serialized in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine, Dr. STONE follows the extraordinarily intelligent, science-driven boy, Senku Ishigami as he wakes up several thousand years after all of humanity had been turned to stone, and works to rebuild civilization. In the third season, with the Stone Wars over, the former members of Tsukasa’s Empire of Might join forces with the Kingdom of Science to build a ship capable of sailing across open ocean to seek answers on the mystery of the global petrification. However, before they can begin their voyage Senku and his friends need to find some key resources and push some new scientific advancements to build the type of vessel they need.
