* ''Manga/DrStone'' is another Japanese example. Its premise has OmnidisciplinaryScientist and TeenGenius Senku wake up in a post-apocalyptic world in which humanity has regressed to the Stone Age, and Senku strives to bring living conditions back up to the 21st century. In doing so, he re-invents or re-discovers all of humanity's key achievements, such as iron, electricity, the internal combustion engine, pharmaceuticals, and telecommunications, and the narrative demonstrates how Senku does each of these with the resources he has. In the process, it also indirectly demonstrates that humanity's knowledge of science is cumulative, and that even breakthroughs as simple as stoves and basic agriculture require other breakthroughs to be created first.[[note]]Incidentally, those two ideas, when combined, create another breakthrough in human society: bread.[[/note]]
