Dr. Stone takes place several thousand years into the future, where after a mysterious phenomenon has turned all of humanity to stone. From the statuesque population, a boy named Senku Ishigami suddenly awakens. He’s extraordinarily intelligent and has a knack for science. Upon seeing the world of complete stone and the utter collapse of civilization, Senku decides to use his profoundness of science to rebuild the world. He starts off with his childhood friend Taiju Oki, who also awoke from stone at the same time Senku did. Depicting nearly two million years of scientific history ranging from the Stone Age to the present day, Senku and Taiju embark on a journey of unequaled crafting adventure.
