Dr. Stone: A Popular Sci-Fi and Adventure Series
The science fiction anime was initially set in 2019 when a mysterious flash petrified all human beings. Humans were turned into stone for 3,700 years until Senku Ishigami was revived.
He plans to revive the human race by studying stone-turned humans to find out what really happened.
He also wants to find a cure to treat everyone and return humanity to its old condition.
Six months after Senku woke up, his friend, Taiju Oki, was also revived. Senku discovered that humans can be revived through nitric acid.
The two work together to create enough nitric acid to revive everyone, starting with Tsukasa Shishio and Yuzuriha Ogawa.
While it might seem that Senku’s plan would work, Tsukasa opposed his idea of reviving everyone as he believed that only select individuals should be revived.
