One fateful day, all of humanity was petrified by a blinding flash of light. After several millennia, high schooler Taiju awakens and finds himself lost in a world of statues. However, he's not alone! His science-loving friend Senku's been up and running for a few months and he's derived a grand plan to kickstart civilization with the power of science!
Senku Ishigami — Senku is highly intelligent and excels in multiple fields of science, with a special love of astronomy and space exploration. After awakening in the "Stone World", he sets about trying to revive humanity by reinventing their lost technology and discovering a "cure" for the petrification. Though somewhat arrogant, he is actually very noble and kind-hearted, seeing science as a means to elevate all people and having unshakable faith in his friends.
Taiju Ōki — Senku's best friend, whom Senku refers to as a "big oaf" or "muscle-head". He has incredible strength and seemingly limitless stamina, but is a pacifist who's never thrown a punch in his life. He is in love with Yuzuriha and will do anything to take care of her, especially when she's in danger.
Yuzuriha Ogawa — Taiju's love interest, a cheerful and kindhearted young woman. She enrolled in her high school's handicraft's club to pursue her goal of becoming a fashion designer, and is exceptionally talented at arts like stitching and clothwork.
Tsukasa Shishio — A young man who rose to fame in mixed martial arts as "The Strongest Primate High Schooler". He resents adults, viewing them as a greedy, corrupting influence on the world, and thus wants to create a new society in the "Stone World" by only reviving young people.
