Dr. Stone Season 2 Trailer

I am looking forward to the of Dr. Stone season 2. Cause I liked the first season. This anime doesn’t have any exciting fight sequence, but somehow it’s still, as Senku calls it “This is exhilarating”.
For a change, the main protagonist doesn’t have any incredible physical abilities. Senku is brilliant enough to leap from one era of scientific revolution to another cause Senku is a man of science. Senku has acquired a vast amount of knowledge through reading books and experimenting with science. But Senku lacks physical strength, so he is entirely dependent on his intellect.
Also, I am intrigued by why the world got petrified and what rejuvenation powers the mysterious petrified rocks have. And how is Senku beat this so-called post-apocalyptic fantasy with science?

The anime is a feast for the eyes with beautiful vivid illustrated artwork and colors. I also love the character designs. And watching humankind rebuild civilization is fascinating.

After watching the anime, I realized how dependent we are on science. And also how even if we know all the basic science, we might fail to implement it as efficiently as Senku. So if have missed some of your basic science classes, Senku will help you catch up as he tediously breaks down science.
If you haven’t watched Dr.Stone, I will recommend you to give the anime a try. And those who have already watched it, do you also wanna try out the Senku Cola? Just Kidding!!
