Synopsis of Dr STONE
After five years of harboring unspoken feelings, high school student Taiju Ooki is finally ready to confess his love to Yuzuriha Ogawa. However, just as Taiju begins confessing to him, a blinding green light strikes the Earth and petrifies humanity throughout the world, turning every human to stone. Several millennia later, Taiju awakens to find the modern world completely non-existent, as nature has flourished in the years that humanity stood still.
Among a stone world of statues, Taiju meets another living human: his science-loving friend Senkuu, who has been active for a few months. Taiju learns that Senkuu has developed a grand plan: to launch the full revival of civilization with science. Taiju’s strength and Senkuu’s brains combine to forge a formidable partnership, soon discovering a method to revive the petrified. However, Senkuu’s master plan is threatened when his ideologies are challenged by those who awaken. Meanwhile, the reason for humanity’s petrification is unknown.
