Watching Dr. Stone: New World was such a blast and I had a great time laughing and enjoying the wonderful adventures in the series. If you enjoyed the show, here are some anime like Dr. Stone: New World that you might be interested in.
Ascendance of a Bookworm (Honzuki no Gekokujou)
Urano Motosu loves books and has an endless desire to read literature, no matter the subject. She almost fulfills her dream job of becoming a librarian before her life is ended in an accident. As she draws her last breath, she wishes to be able to read more books in her next life.
As if fate was listening to her prayer, she wakes up reincarnated as Myne—a frail five-year-old girl living in a medieval era. What immediately comes to her mind is her passion. She tries to find something to read, only to become frustrated by the lack of books at her disposal.
Without the printing press, books have to be written and copied by hand, making them very expensive; as such, only a few nobles can afford them—but this won’t stop Myne. She will prove that her will to read is unbreakable, and if there are no books around, she will make them herself!
- Both stories start out with the main character being removed from their world and being placed into the world that has a more primitive setting than their own. Both main characters use science and history knowledge from their respective time periods to adapt to their new surroundings. Their knowledge helps to influence the new world and its native inhabitants.
- Both MC have knowledge of a society much more advanced than their current world, and can “invent” a lot of things. They both are really passionate about something (science and book). Both shows are pretty lighthearted.
7 Seeds (Anime Like Dr. Stone)
Imagine this: you are living a normal day in your life. Maybe you are out with friends, eating your family’s home-cooked meal or spending time with your girlfriend. When you next wake up, you are suddenly thrust into a strange, new world, surrounded by five strangers on a rapidly sinking boat in the middle of a storm.
For Natsu Iwashimizu, this is her new reality. Humanity has perished, and all that remains of the Japanese population are five groups of men and women who were chosen to be sent to the future in hopes of continuing mankind’s existence. While every other person chosen has a useful talent such as martial arts, knowledge, or architecture, Natsu is a shy high school girl who cannot even raise her voice to shout. The new world is dangerous beyond imagination, and although Natsu seems to lack helpful skills, she must go with the others making their way to the “Seven Fuji” in order to survive.
- They talked about people who lived in the future when they aren’t people except them they also talked how to rebuild the earth and human civilization.
- Both start life in a world where nothing from the past earth civilization is left and they start building things on their own while in dr stone main focus is on how the protagonist wants to restore earth civilization ,in 7 seeds main focus is on survival.
Food Wars! Shokugeki no Soma
Souma Yukihira has been cooking alongside his father Jouichirou for as long as he can remember. As a sous chef at his father’s restaurant, he has spent years developing his culinary expertise and inventing new dishes to amaze their customers. He aspires to exceed his father’s skill and take over the restaurant one day, but he is shocked to learn that Jouichirou is closing up the shop to take a job in New York.
Rather than tagging along with his father, Souma finds himself enrolling at the prestigious Tootsuki Culinary Academy, where only 10 percent of its students end up graduating. The school is famous for its “Shokugeki”—intense cooking competitions between students often used to settle debates and arguments. Jouichirou tells Souma that to surpass him and survive the next three years at Tootsuki and graduate there.
The academy’s brutal curriculum and fiercely competitive student body await the young chef, who must learn to navigate the treacherous environment if he wants to stand a chance at realizing his dreams. But is skill alone enough to let him rise to the top?
- Both MCs are very passionate of their work and are not afraid to think out of the box to gain an advantage of a situation. They work their way around things that may seem impossible and will always see through things to the end. Their hard work and dedication is something that stands out from everyone else, which obviously attracts the attention from a variety of people naturally making them a leader of some sorts and a target for others. Many surprise moments and wow factors from both anime that will put you on the edge of your seat.
- Both are shounen that focus on someone that is very good at a specific skill and instead of the MC having physical battles, they have battles on that skill. The humor elements are also similar.
That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime (Tensei shitara Slime Datta Ken)
Thirty-seven-year-old Satoru Mikami is a typical corporate worker, who is perfectly content with his monotonous lifestyle in Tokyo, other than failing to nail down a girlfriend even once throughout his life. In the midst of a casual encounter with his colleague, he falls victim to a random assailant on the streets and is stabbed. However, while succumbing to his injuries, a peculiar voice echoes in his mind, and recites a bunch of commands which the dying man cannot make sense of.
When Satoru regains consciousness, he discovers that he has reincarnated as a goop of slime in an unfamiliar realm. In doing so, he acquires newfound skills—notably, the power to devour anything and mimic its appearance and abilities. He then stumbles upon the sealed Catastrophe-level monster “Storm Dragon” Veldora who had been sealed away for the past 300 years for devastating a town to ashes. Sympathetic to his predicament, Satoru befriends him, promising to assist in destroying the seal. In return, Veldora bestows upon him the name Rimuru Tempest to grant him divine protection.
Now, liberated from the mundanities of his past life, Rimuru embarks on a fresh journey with a distinct goal in mind. As he grows accustomed to his new physique, his gooey antics ripple throughout the world, gradually altering his fate.
- Both of these amusing shounen series feature someone with modern-day knowledge thrust into a new world where they have to start over. One ends up in a magical world with technology reminiscent of the middle ages, while the other winds up in the distant future where humanity has reverted back to the stone age.
- Worldbuilding, Society, Village, Medieval times, Wars, Nature, Progressive, Acquiring & Fusing new things, Main characters are against separatists.
Cells at Work! (Hataraku Saibou)
Inside the human body, roughly 37.2 trillion cells work energetically 24 hours a day and 365 days a year. Fresh out of training, the cheerful and somewhat airheaded Sekkekkyuu AE3803 is ready to take on the ever-so-important task of transporting oxygen. As usual, Hakkekkyuu U-1146 is hard at work patrolling and eliminating foreign bacteria seeking to make the body their new lair. Elsewhere, little platelets are lining up for a new construction project.
Dealing with wounds and allergies, getting lost on the way to the lungs, and bickering with similar cell types, the daily lives of cells are always hectic as they work together to keep the body healthy!
- Both are educational enough to not make you confused. It involves more of biology branch of science though rather than chemistry in Dr. Stone.
- If you are looking for a fun way to learn something, this is it: Dr. Stone will teach you about basically anything science – from geology to how to chemistry -, while Cells at Work will tell you all about the inner workings of the human body! Both have a fun story as well, though Cells at Work is more episodic and comedic, while Dr. Stone has a long-running story and with also some mystery elements.
Appare-Ranman! (Anime Like Dr. Stone)
No dream is too big for Appare Sorrano, a socially-awkward inventor living in a small rural town in Japan in the late 19th century. Fascinated since childhood by the creation of steamships that can connect people across great distances, he’s learned to make machines of all kinds from various scientific texts. His goal is to sail across the sea, beyond the sky, and ultimately, to the other side of the moon.
Unfortunately, through a string of events, Appare finds himself stranded in the middle of the sea on his mini steamship. Floating alongside him is a skilled but cowardly samurai, Kosame Ishikki, who was tasked to keep his eccentric behavior in check. Just when all hope seems lost, a large steamship saves them and takes them to Los Angeles.
With no money or plans, they decide to participate in the “Trans-America Wild Race,” which gives Appare the chance to build his own automobile, and Kosame the opportunity to use the cash prize to return home. However, against rival racers and unknown challenges residing in the wilderness, just how far will this adventure take Appare and Kosame?
- A main character that is enamored with technology, the same passion as Senku is with science. Each is also surrounded by a cast of colorful and memorable characters.
- The protagonists are basically the same character, but in a different scenario. While Dr. Stone focuses more on “science” (an umbrella term to justify Senku being able to do literally anything from scratch), Appare-Ranman focuses on the development of his MC through his experience with his first real friends and also his rivals, and how they change him from your by-the-books anime smartass to a genuinely well developed character who learns how to be more human through experience. Finally, Appare’s cast of colorful characters is miles better than Dr. Stone’s.
Eccentric scientist Rintarou Okabe has a never-ending thirst for scientific exploration. Together with his ditzy but well-meaning friend Mayuri Shiina and his roommate Itaru Hashida, Rintarou founds the Future Gadget Laboratory in the hopes of creating technological innovations that baffle the human psyche. Despite claims of grandeur, the only notable “gadget” the trio have created is a microwave that has the mystifying power to turn bananas into green goo.
However, when Rintarou decides to attend neuroscientist Kurisu Makise’s conference on time travel, he experiences a series of strange events that lead him to believe that there is more to the “Phone Microwave” gadget than meets the eye. Apparently able to send text messages into the past using the microwave, Rintarou dabbles further with the “time machine,” attracting the ire and attention of the mysterious organization SERN.
Due to the novel discovery, Rintarou and his friends find themselves in an ever-present danger. As he works to mitigate the damage his invention has caused to the timeline, he is not only fighting a battle to save his loved ones, but also one against his degrading sanity.
- Two mad scientists who are looking to save the world or make it a better place for everyone, both use different means to achieve this, containing rivals with completely different or opposite goals.
- Both animes focus on scientific solutions and the main character is a huge fan of science. They both achieve almost impossible targets. Instead of adding a lot of science fiction, they have shown almost legitimate scientific steps.
Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood
After a horrific alchemy experiment goes wrong in the Elric household, brothers Edward and Alphonse are left in a catastrophic new reality. Ignoring the alchemical principle banning human transmutation, the boys attempted to bring their recently deceased mother back to life. Instead, they suffered brutal personal loss: Alphonse’s body disintegrated while Edward lost a leg and then sacrificed an arm to keep Alphonse’s soul in the physical realm by binding it to a hulking suit of armor.
The brothers are rescued by their neighbor Pinako Rockbell and her granddaughter Winry. Known as a bio-mechanical engineering prodigy, Winry creates prosthetic limbs for Edward by utilizing “automail,” a tough, versatile metal used in robots and combat armor. After years of training, the Elric brothers set off on a quest to restore their bodies by locating the Philosopher’s Stone—a powerful gem that allows an alchemist to defy the traditional laws of Equivalent Exchange.
As Edward becomes an infamous alchemist and gains the nickname “Fullmetal,” the boys’ journey embroils them in a growing conspiracy that threatens the fate of the world.
- Both feature their own take on science heavily. Dr. stone’s science if more grounded in realism whereas FMA:B’s alchemy is more exaggerated for it’s fictional world. Both science’s and the young genius main characters who use it, shape the world around them. Both are exhilarating series with great OST’s, plots & characters.
- The charecters in both anime are unaware of the things that exist in thier worlds. They find them one by one so it makes the plot a bit similar and its the only things which keeps us focused after every episode.
Hopefully you will find some of these anime intriguing and give it a try. Enjoy the similar anime like Dr. Stone: New World!
