Typical student Taiju Oki tells his science-loving friend Senku Ishigami that he will confess his feelings to their classmate Yuzuriha Ogawa. He prepares to make his confession to Yuzuriha under a camphor tree on the school grounds, but his attempt is interrupted when a bright light appears in the sky. Taiju pushes Yuzuriha to the tree to protect her as the light petrifies them along with the entire human population. After 3700 years spent trapped in stone, Senku and Taiju are somehow revived from their petrified state six months apart in what they now call the Stone World. Senku discovers that petrification can be cured with nital, and intends to rebuild their civilization with Taiju’s help. They intend to use it on Yuzuriha first, but a lion attack forces them to revive martial artist Tsukasa Shishio instead, before later successfully reviving Yuzuriha. A conflict of ideals leads to Senku’s group forming a Kingdom of Science in Ishigami Village to restore civilization and uncover the mystery of their petrification while Tsukasa establishes an Empire of Might to create a new world free of technology where only pure-hearted youths are revived.
