Synopsis by Dr. STONE

After five years of unspoken feelings, high school student Taiju Ooki is finally ready to declare his love for Yuzuriha Ogawa. However, just as Taiju begins his confession, a harsh green light hits the earth and petrifies humanity across the world, turning every human being into stone. A few millennia later, Taiju awakens to find that the modern world is utterly nonexistent, as nature has thrived in the years when humanity stood still.

In the midst of a stone world of statues, Taiju meets another living human: his science-loving friend Senkuu, who has been active for several months. Taiju learns that Senkuu has devised a grand plan: to start the full revival of civilization with science. Taiju's strength and Senkuu's wits combine in a formidable partnership, which soon discovers a method to revive the petrified. However, Senkuu's master plan is threatened when his ideologies are challenged by those who are awakening. Meanwhile, the reason for the petrification of mankind is unknown.
