Plot

Typical student Taiju Oki tells his science-loving friend Senku Ishigami that he will confess his feelings to their classmate Yuzuriha Ogawa, but his attempt to make his confession to Yuzuriha under a camphor tree on the school grounds is interrupted when a bright light appears in the sky. Taiju pushes Yuzuriha to the tree to protect her as the light petrifies them and the human population. After 3700 years spent trapped in stone, each willing themselves to remain conscious, Senku and Taiju are somehow revived from their petrified state six months apart in what they call the Stone World. Senku intends to rebuild their civilization with Taiju's help as they develop nital to mix with the miracle fluid that revived them, intending to use it on Yuzuriha. But a lion attack forces them revive Tsukasa Shishio instead, before doing the same with Yuzuriha. But a conflict of ideals leads to Senku's group forming a Kingdom of Science in Ishigami Village to restore civilization and uncover the mystery of their petrification while Tsukasa establishes a Empire of Might to create a new world where only pure-hearted youths are revived.[3]

Voiced by: Yūsuke Kobayashi (Japanese); Aaron Dismuke, Mikaela Krantz (child) (English)[4][5]
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. When Senku's party made it to Ishigami Village, he partook in the Ishigami Village games and won the final round by default when Chrome was unable to make it to the ring. Senku has an allergy to lacquer.
Taiju Oki (大木 大樹, Oki Taiju)
Voiced by: Makoto Furukawa (Japanese); Ricco Fajardo, Emily Fajardo (child) (English)[6][5]
Senku's best friend, whom Senku refers to as a "big oaf" or "musclehead". 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 (小川 杠, Ogawa Yuzuriha)
Voiced by: Kana Ichinose (Japanese); Brittany Lauda (English)[6][5]

A barefoot youth who rose to fame in mixed martial arts as "The Strongest Primate High Schooler", being physically powerful enough to kill a male lion with one punch. After being reawakened by Senku, Tsukasa saved them from the lions where he later skinned the male lion to add to his attire and later helped with hunting wild animals for food. He resents adults due to his experience with one who prevented him from gathering seashells for his sister before she died, viewing the current adults as an avaricious corruption while seeking to create a new society in the "Stone World" by only reviving young people. Tsukasa serves as the primary antagonist of the manga's early story arcs where he caused the apparent death of Senku. During the Vs. Hyoga arc, Tsukasa learns from Hyoga that Senku is still alive. During the Communications arc, Tsukasa is betrayed by Hyoga causing him to team up with Senku. After Hyoga is defeated, Tsukasa was critically injured as a result of the fight causing him to be put into cryosleep.

Hyoga is a tall and fairly-built man who is strong enough to take on 10 attackers. He is revived by Tsukasa during the Vs. Hyoga arc. He and some Empire of Might fighters took on the Ishigami Village's finest until it was discovered that Gen rigged their weapons. During the Communications arc, he betrays Tsukasa causing an unlikely team-up between Senku and Tsuka to defeat him.

After finding the tree that Yuzuriha's petrified state is in, he soon meets up with his genius friend Senku Ishigami, who had awoken six months earlier. As the only two humans freed from stone, Senku seeks to rebuild civilization in this "stone world" using his knowledge of science and Taiju's brawn to help him develop a nital solution out of a miracle water made from bat guano that could possibly free people from their petrified state.

Tsukasa killed the male lion and skins it to add to his attire. As Tsukasa proves to be a valuable hunter, providing food for the trio, Senku assigns Taiju with harvesting seashells and grind them into calcium carbonate as a first step towards advancing civilization.
