Dr. Stone, a science fiction anime about a civilization, turned to stone. Senku Ishigami, the 18-year-old protagonist of the show, suddenly gets revived from his stone form into a world where humanity has not existed for long. He finds himself surrounded by stone figures who used to be people. Senku possesses a very high level of intellect and is proficient with chemistry, physics, maths, you name it. He figures out the way to revive people and one by one starts reviving his friends and some allies. Things soon turn sour as one of the allies decides against Senku’s ideas of reviving the society and establishing the rule of science.
The series is brilliant and has garnered a lot of views across the world. Senku is regarded as one of the smartest characters in all of the anime and is one of the main highlights of the show. The second season of Dr. Stone about the Stone Wars arc premiered recently in January 2021 and generated a lot of buzz among the fans. The manga of the same name has received the 64th Shogakukan Manga Award in the Shonen category. If you’d like to read the manga, it is available on Manga Plus.
However, in this article, we’ll be talking about Anime. Without question, the anime is worth a watch. The question is, where do you watch it? Is it free? The answer is yes and no. There are some websites that offer animes, including Dr. Stone, for free. However, some have a pay-to-watch model where you need to get a subscription to watch the anime. Without further ado, here are a few websites where you can watch Dr. Stone.
Crunchyroll is one of the names every Otaku must’ve heard. It’s a streaming giant when it comes to anime and is one of the oldest streaming websites available.

Another big name in the anime streaming world, Funimation, is hugely responsible for promoting Anime in the West. It is available only in the U.S., the U.K., Canada, Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand. It also has a massive anime and manga store to boast, and to add to that, Funimation is also home to anime video games. This adds up to its advantages.

It also does not provide services for free, one can pay $5.99, $7.99, or $99.99 according to their plan preference and watch Dr. Stone and many other animes on Funimation.
Amazon Prime Video
Coming to more general streaming services, Amazon Prime is a place where you can watch Dr. Stone. As you may have already guessed, nothing about this one is free either. Amazon offers a different method of streaming the show as it allows to rent or buy the show for streaming.

The pros are that it allows you to arrange an Amazon party where you can watch it with your friends. Amazon also makes it available in all the countries it is available.
Anime-Planet is also a free streaming service available in all major countries. One has to sign up and make an account on it to stream shows. Anime-Planet also provides users with forums, character rankings, etc, which helps Otakus remain informed and express their opinion.
