People love fiction. And if you add some science with that fiction, it becomes more interesting to the audience. In the world of anime, science fiction is a popular genre. Even though there is a lot of anime that are based on science fiction, most of them prioritize the fiction part more than science. But in an anime like Dr Stone, science is the main factor. Even though the anime is set in an imaginary world that is set a few thousand years ahead of the present time, the anime has shown us a unique example of compatibility between science and the human world. So, as the anime already has two seasons under its fold, fans are eagerly waiting for Dr Stone Season 3.
A Quick Recap
Before jumping straight into the discussion of Dr Stone Season 3, let’s have a quick look at what we saw in the previous seasons.
After five years of nurturing unspoken feelings, high school student Taiju Ooki is finally ready to confess his love for Yuzuriha Ogawa. However, when Taiju begins to confess his sins, a blinding blue light strikes the Earth and shakes humanity around the world — turning everyone into stones. Thousands of years later, Taiju wakes up to find the modern world completely empty, as nature has flourished over the years of humanity. Among the world of stone, Taiju meets another living person: his scientific friend Senkuu, who has been working for several months. Taiju discovers that Senkuu has developed an excellent strategy — to launch a completely new civilization with science. Taiju and Senkuu’s brains come together to form a wonderful relationship, and they soon find a way to revive those who are stuck.
