Outline

It has been about 3,700 years since civilization collapsed following the mysterious phenomenon that caused humans the world over to turn to stone, when two high school students suddenly awaken from their stony slumber. Senku and Taiju pledge to survive this “stone world” and to develop things like gunpowder, steel and electricity. The way this story tells of restarting civilization from zero using the power of science makes for a fresh and fast-paced survival drama.
