Dr. Stone depicts the story of the one-in-a-lifetime genius, Senku, as he goes about restarting the scientific age of humanity after human civilization mysteriously came to a stop when humans were all petrified over 3000 thousand years ago. After reawakening to a new mysterious world, Senku first tried to understand his new surroundings before using science to aid his everyday life.
After enough time, Senku was able to uncover a way to undo the petrification, and he used this to free his friends, Taiju and Yuzuriha. These three then went on to establish the Kingdom of Science, a group determined to take humanity back to its glorious, scientific heights. Dr. Stone handles science well to make an interesting premise to work with and, with its interesting main cast, it is one of the animes of the season.
10 CELLS AT WORK
Cells at Work is a lively depiction of the daily lives of human cells, as they go about their day. It manages to supply the audience with a solid amount of science without ever getting too complicated to understand.
This makes it an easy-to-watch anime, but don't expect to be able to pass a medical exam based on the knowledge being put out, because that isn't the aim of this anime. Fans of Dr. Stone might like this anime due to its educational nature, but it goes without saying that Cells at Work is a far less exciting take on the classic 'science is fun' trope.
9 STEINS; GATE
Senkou Rintarou is a genius ahead of his time, and like all genius ahead of their time, he yearns to advance even further. Steins; Gate depicts the story of Rintarou and his friends as he attempts to build future devices in their lab. Through constant trial and error, they discover that the " Phone Microwave" that they discovered is capable of sending emails to the past.
With this comes the revelation that once sent, these emails alter history itself. Steins; Gate is a classic science fiction anime and all fans of the genre should be sure to give it a watch.
8 FROM THE NEW WORLD
From the New World depicts a world that has fallen into chaos, once members of the population developed psychokinetic abilities. This new development led to a great period of instability and upheaval, so much so that the people with these special psychic abilities had to isolate themselves from the normal world.
The story depicts the life of Saki Watanabe and her friends at the mysterious Sage Academy. The children quickly grow into their expected roles, but it's not too long before they start noticing the inconsistencies of their "Utopia".
7 THE PROMISED NEVERLAND
The Promised Neverland is a psychological thriller, meant to get the audience off their seats. It leads the audience down one path before throwing a plot twist in the formula to leave the fans wanting even more. A major strength of this series is that it gets the audience to care about the children before slowly taking them away. This adds drama to each episode as the audience is never truly sure what will happen next.
The Promised Neverland follows the story of Emma, Rei, and Norman, as they try to escape from the human farm they once called home. Though it is not quite the same type of survival anime as Doctor Stone, the premise is interesting and the execution is fantastic, making this anime a much watch.
