The Stone Age continues as Dr. Stone anime will be getting a second season. The news comes from the latest issue of Shueisha’s Shonen Jump magazine. The anime has been a surprising hit given that the series is nothing like traditional action-packed shonen anime, but then again neither was The Promised Neverland. The second season of the anime will adapt the Stone Wars arc that took place in the manga. Which is a good thing by the way because not every series have to be action-packed and full of fights.
