Synopsis for 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 his confession, a blinding green light strikes the Earth and petrifies humanity across the globe, turning every human being to stone. Several millennia later, Taiju wakes up to find the modern world completely non-existent, as nature has flourished in the years when 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 complete revival of civilization with science. Taiju’s strength and Senkuu’s brains combine to forge a formidable partnership, and they soon discover 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. Font: Comic Natalie
