Dr. Stone Plot
Typical student Taiju tells his science-loving friend Senku that he is finally about to announce to Yuzuriha, who he has secretly been in love with for five years. Meeting under a camphor tree on the school grounds, just as Taiju is about to confess, a bright light appears in the sky. Taiju pushes Yuzuriha to the tree to protect her, but the light suddenly petrifies all of humanity, with every human on Earth turning into stone. Most humans begin to lose their consciousness while all traces of civilization decay, but Taiju keeps his alive as the years progress by his motivation of freeing both himself and Yuzuriha. Eventually, Taiju breaks free from the stone and finds a message carved into the tree that leads him to discover that Senku has also escaped from stone, keeping his consciousness alive by counting how long he has been petrified. Thus Taiju learns that the date is now October 5th, 5738.
Together, Taiju and Senku begin to rebuild civilization using Senku’s scientific knowledge. They create nital; a corrosive solvent that destroys the stone casing on people. At first, they plan to free Yuzuriha, but when the two are attacked by lions that have escaped from zoos and bred in Japan over the centuries, they instead release someone that Taiju recognizes as Tsukasa Shishio, “The Strongest Primate High Schooler”, who uses his strength to kill the lions. Later they make more nital to free Yuzuriha as well, but Senku discovers that during Tsukasa’s childhood he was brutally beaten by an adult while he was collecting seashells for his sister undergoing surgery; due to the man believing since he had the fishing rights for the region Tsukasa was stealing the seashells. Thus giving Tsukasa a mindset that only the “pure young-hearted people” should be revived, and thus Tsukasa starts destroying the petrified adults. Thus two rival clans form: Senku’s Kingdom of science, and Tsukasa’s Empire of Might. (Source: Wikipedia)
