The summer 2019 anime series Dr. Stone is getting its home video releases handled by TOHO and they’ve set a solid schedule for it. The twenty-four episode series is getting a six-volume release that begins on October 16th, 2019. While we had some of the flat cover artwork for the first volume previously, we now have a look at the set in a better light with the full packaging spread with its limited-edition elements and it’s a great opening salvo for the run.
Both versions are listed as limited editions with the DVDs priced at 8,000 yen each while the Blu-rays are priced at 9,000 yen. Check out the full schedule below!
