Anime NYC powered by Crunchyroll and VIZ Media have announced that Dr. Stone manga creators Riichiro Inagaki and Boichi will participate in Anime NYC 2019 as Official Guests and that the prominent manga and recently debuted anime series will play a major role in New York’s largest anime, manga, and Japanese pop culture convention.

Dr. Stone is an ongoing manga series spanning over 10 volumes and 100 chapters in Japan. In the series, all of humanity is turned to stone. Many millennia after that cataclysmic event, high school student Taiju frees himself from the petrification and finds himself surrounded by statues. The situation looks grim—until he runs into his science-loving friend Senku. Together they plan to restart civilization with the power of science. Dr. Stone is published in the popular Weekly Shonen Jump magazine in Japan, with VIZ Media releasing the book in the U.S. A hotly-anticipated anime adaption featuring the voices of Yusuke Kobayashi, Makoto Furukawa, and Kana Ichinose debuted on July 5, 2019 and is available in the U.S. now on Crunchyroll.

Dr. Stone writer Riichiro Inagaki is also the author of the sports drama Eyeshield 21, and Dr. Stone artist Boichi is the prolific Korean illustrator behind Sun-Ken Rock. Both will participate in panels, autograph signings, and special events at Anime NYC to celebrate Dr. Stone‘s success. More details about their schedules will be revealed in Fall 2019.

“We’re deeply excited to welcome Mr. Inagaki and Boichi to Anime NYC,” said Anime NYC Show Director Peter Tatara. “Dr. Stone has taken the world by storm, and we’re privileged to welcome the creators of one of the year’s biggest manga to the biggest city in America!”
