He starts waking up more people and tries to rebuild society and the technology that humans had previously. Soon, a faction of people, led by a warrior, try to disrupt the scientist’s progress because they believe that it was a technological advancement that brought about the years-long mass petrification of humanity.

In April 5738 A.D., science genius Senkū Ishigami wakes up from a petrified state after more than 3700 years. The rest of humanity has also been frozen all this time. After spending months trying to find out what exactly caused him to wake up, he realizes that it occurred due to nitric acid. Ishigami then prepares a blend that immediately rouses people out of their petrified state.
He releases his best friend Taiju Ōki, Yuzuriha Ogawa, a schoolmate of theirs, and Tsukasa Shishiō, a skilled martial artist. Ishigami’s intention to return the world to its previously-achieved scientific glory and technological advancement soon faces stark opposition from Tsukasa, who believes that man’s relentless pursuit of scientific distinction was the cause behind the mass petrification of humanity.
