    Typical student Taiju tells his science-loving friend Senku that he is finally about to announce to Yuzuriha, that he has secretly been in love with her 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 the 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.


    An anime adaption was announced for 2019. Yūsuke Kobayashi will serve as the voice actor for protagonist Senku Ishigami.


    Pretty excited for this, the manga is a good mix of serious-business science and a lot comedic elements where it doesn't take it too seriously, so pretty good balance of elements for the anime to work with.

    i wonder if the anime will be able to capture boichi's unique and very detailed art style.

    probably not but one can hope.

    i also hope people don't get turned off by the beginning bit of the story with taiju. it gets so much better after he leaves and the attention is fully on senku.

    I love the manga so I’m hyped :X3

    Yusuke Kobayashi is the guy who voiced Subaru in the Re;Zero anime iirc. Subaru’s voice was great and showcased a lot of expressiveness so I’m 10 billion percent confident he can do Senku justice.

    Seems like they haven't fudged the art style which is nice.

    Can't say I agree with the casting for Senkuu though. Iffy about Tsukasa as well.

    They nailed the art going by the teaser, so that's exciting. :pepehype
    Don't have much of a problem with the seiyuu from it either so, very promising for now... the potential is there.
