SinceSenku chose Magma as the third member of the exploration group, the other members of the Kingdom of Science are worried that Magma might try to attack Senku while they are down in the cave. However, Senku is only focused on the filaments. In Magma’s mind, he is thinking of attacking Senku because no one will be watching. Just as Magma is in thought, Asagiri Gen walks over to him and whispers instructions (it is inaudible for the viewer). says no one will be watching while they are inContinue reading “Dr. Stone: The Treasure | 1 x22 – recap”

In the previous episode, the Kingdom of Science prevailed in winning the Grand Bout. As a result, even though he tried to lose to Chrome, Senku became the village chief of Ishigami. Ruri received the cure-all drug to get rid of her pneumonia.
Shortly after her recovery, Ruri admits that she knew his full name from the moment she met him because her mother told her a story about him. Ruri proceeds to tell the group that her mom told her stories and the 100th story out of 100 stories was titled Ishigami Senku.Continue reading “Dr. Stone: A Tale of the Ages | (1 x 16) – recap”
We continue with the Grand Bout. Gifted with clear sight from Suika, Kinro beats down Magma and leaves him barely able to move. The Kingdom of Science begins to celebrate, but Magma convinces Kinro to ask the referee if the watermelon helmet is legal for the fight. While Kinro turns to the referee to ask, Magma sneaks up and cracks Kinro over the head smashing the helmet to pieces to open the episode.
Ps. We have a new opening theme.Continue reading “Dr. Stone: Master of Flame (s01, e14) – recap”
In this episode of Dr. Stone, Chrome, Ginro, and Senku return to camp with the Sulfuric Acid. Kohaku gets excited because the assumes the antibiotic will be created instantly. However, Chrome quickly deflates her by telling her that there are still steps to take before the medicine is complete.Continue reading “Dr. Stone: Masked Warrior (s01, e13) – Recap”
We resume in the Kingdom of Science with Asagiri Gen back with Shishio keeping Senku’s existence a secret and Kohaku training Ginro and Kinro for the Grand Bout.
Chrome and Senku plot to develop glass to make the antibiotic for Rori and then Senku ends up ripping off rips off Suika’s melon mask revealing an adorable face. That face quickly squinches up because shes near sited and the mask helps her see.
They start to gather materials to help them make glass. Senku ends up making glasses for Suika in the process.
Kohaku keeps training Kinro and Ginro. She calls out Kinro for having a bad depth of field. Ginro tells Kinro that his issue is because of his fuzzy sickness. Meaning he also needs glasses for astigmatism. However, he never asks for glasses.
Meanwhile, Senku, Chrome, and Suika formed glass and are struggling to make flasks with decent shape. They enlist the help of an old-timer name Kaseki who is a great craftsman in the village. When he refuses to help, Senku abducts him.
“I’m kind of a big deal” – Kaseki
Chrome and Senku attempt to create the vials and flasks in front of him. This makes Kaseki cringe and eventually can no longer resist helping after seeing how bad their craftsmanship was.
Kaseki crafts the needs flasks with precision and perfection. The Kingdom of Science is getting closer and closer to being able to create the antibiotic.
Ginro tells Kinro that putting gold and silver coatings on their spears may help him with his depth of field and allow an advantage in the Grand Bout. They go to Kohaku and Senku and ask him to create spears like the one he for them when they met. Senku agrees but sets them up for a mission to scavenge the materials to create a silver tip.
Senku and friends begin handing out ramen in the hopes that the villagers will join the Kingdom of Science and help them create the antibiotic and make other advances in society using science. They need manpower to do this per the last episode, Stone Road.
An outsider with a cool haircut that rivals Senku’s (I haven’t decided who’s hair is better) arrives and starts eating a bowl of ramen. Kohaku calls him an enemy holds him at knifepoint along with Ginro and Kinro.
Turns out this man was a famous magician pre-petrification and considers himself a mentalist. Kohaku thinks he’s full of crap and he seems shifty. However, Senku opts not to debate whether he is good or bad but makes him work for his meal.
Let There Be the Light of Science
This new character is named Asagiri Gen. He and others from the village join the group for manual labor. Doing so allows the group to acquire iron. Senku asks Asagiri how Taiju and Yuzuriha are doing. Asagiri admits that he is a spy for Shishio and that his job is to confirm Senku’s death.
Asagiri says that regardless of which side wins (Science or Shishio) he’s going to go with what makes him the happiest. That turns out to be girls and food, but mostly girls. Kohaku is disgusted and threatens to kill him or imprison him.
Senku holds her off by telling her that Asagiri needs to report back to Shishio to avoid him coming to investigate for himself. He then promises that once Asagiri sees the advances they make he’ll want to join the Kingdom of Science.
The Kingdom of Science is working on creating a generator. Senku states that they’ll need lightening and as luck would have it a thunderstorm lights up the sky. Senku looks shaken to the core because he was ill-prepared for the storm.
The team springs into action to create lightning rods to harness the energy of the lightning and create a magnet. Some of the primitive villagers mistake this frantic preparation for the destruction of the bridge and anger of the heavens due to their sorcery. Asagiri uses a flower trick to confuse the primitive group so that the Kingdom of Science can continue with its mission to harness the lightning.
Chrome, Senku, Kohoku, Ginro, Kinro, and Asagiri all stand on a hill with iron rods waiting to get struck by lightning. Kohaku uses Kinro’s spear with the golden tip to mount the iron rod in the air. As a result, a magnet is created to aide the group in the creation of the generator.
They create the generator and with some Asagiri’s magical persuasion, Kinro and Ginro finally join the Kingdom of Science as the two operators of the generator with promises of getting new golden spears.
Senku also created a light bulb that illuminates the night, showed the group the result of their hard work, won over Asagiri, and took Senku one step closer to realizing his dream of bringing the world back to its former glory.
In this episode, Senku and Kohaku find a hot spring so that Kohaku can take the water to her sick sister, Ruri. Senku is thrown off at first because he believes that she confessed her undying love for him. She denies that she loves him, but confirms she likes his way of life. However, I do think she will fall for him eventually, but she is more concerned about her sister’s health right now.
The jug with the hot spring water in it is too heavy and Senku offers to carry it. He eventually falls over and decides to create a vehicle to help them transport the supplies. Kohaku believes the hot spring has healing properties. Senku knows it will not heal her sister, adding to the primitive origin. They arrive at Kohaku’s village where two guards will not let Senku in because he is an outsider.
Where Two Million Years Have Gone
Senku is excited about finding the village and wonders where all of these people came from. He deduces that they were born post petrification due to their primitive nature and assumes he will be able to take over the village.
He encounters two guards that will not let him pass. So he tests their intelligence by creating bubbles. They don’t know what the bubbles are an immediately take a defensive stance and scream for Chrome, their village sorcerer.
Science vs. Sorcery
Chrome arrives on the scene and explains away the bubbles while popping them. This surprises Senku and he is excited that another person interested in how the world works is alive.
Chrome tries to amaze Senku by using crystals to create various colors of fire, but Senku can deduce how he achieved the fire. Seeing Chrome’s passion for sorcery makes Senku think of Shishio.
He tells Chrome that Shishio would eventually try to kill him because he too is interested in how the world works and even though he doesn’t understand everything, his existence and abilities would challenge Shishio’s purified world.
Chrome challenges Senku to a battle of numbers and puts up his entire lab as collateral. Whoever wins takes it all. Senku crushes Chrome easily and takes his lab for his own, but invites Chrome and the two guards to join him and Kohaku in the Kingdom of Science.
Kinro, one of the guards is settled in his ways and tells Senku that he can not come into the villages because “rules are rules”. Kinro does ease up after Senku puts a gold coating over his spear.
While looking through the resources he gained from Chromes inventory, Senku gives shouts out to Dragon Quest and Monster Hunter.
Kohaku heads into town to see her sister, Ruri. Ruri turns out to be the priestess of the town and she is sick. Kohaku and Chrome are trying hard to figure out what can save her.
Senku decides to tell Chrome what happened to the world with petrification over 3700 years. Chrome is overcome with grief and hope and vows to help Senku rebuild.
Senku says he can save Ruri with an antibiotic.
In this episode, we pick up with Senku still in a flashback. After waking up from his petrification, Senku solidifies his goal to rebuild civilization. He discovers that something in the soil aided his awakening and follows the source back to the bat cave we saw earlier in the season.
The bat cave has a liquid dripping from its ceiling. Senku believes that it had a significant part in his awakening so he gathers an amount and pours it on a nearby body that happens to be Taiju.
When the petrification does not immediately wake Taiju up, Senku revisits his theory to figure out what other components could be involved in the awakening. This leads him to use Albert Einstein’s special-relativity equation, E = mc2. Senku uses the bat juice along with igniting the consciousness of Taiju and he wakes up.
Senku wakes up in real-time.
Two Nations of the Stone World
After Senku wakes up, Yuzuriha put a wood plank to his back to protect his spine and neck. Senku is unbothered by almost dying and decides to use his presumed death to get the upper hand on Shishio.
Shishio thinks Senku is dead, so Senku proposes Taiju and Yuzuriha go and join his ranks to act as double agents and thwart his plans to create his perfect youthful world.
At the same time, Senku will go to find the people who sent up smoke signals to begin his community of science.
When we next see Shishio he is approaching the bat cave when he is attacked by a girl. He identifies her as a 2nd generation human born after the petrification. He categorized her as primitive and planned to take over her clan at a later time. He traps her under a tree and proceeds to his destination.
Senku comes to rescue her. She is enamored by Senku’s ability to get her from under the tree using science. He used a pulley system. We find out her name is Kohaku and she vows to be with Senku.
Previously on Dr. Stone, Senku and Taiju faced a ravaging pack of lions during their attempt to revive Yuzuriha. In a panic, they revived the strongest human from their school named Shishio.
He proved to be helpful with necessary tasks like hunting and protecting. However, Senku soon realized that Shishio’s motives were skewed from the goal of reviving all of civilization.
Shishio’s main goal was to resurrect a purified society. His answer to making sure only young people were resurrected included crushing the stones of all of the adults so that they can not corrupt society again.
Senku is playing it cool for the most part around Shishio despite knowing his actual goals to kill every adult so that they can not revive.
Operation: Save Every Last Human Being
In the meantime, Taiju is gathering the resources needed to create the revival serum. Senku plans to keep the ingredients of the serum a secret from Shishio, however, Taiju is very oblivious and blurts out that he’s acquired everything.
Shishio is instantly intrigued, and Senku knowns that if he finds out the recipe, he’ll dispose of them. So to continue Operation: Let’s save every last human being, Senku sends Shishio to get the nitric acid (one of the ingredients).
While Shishio went to look for the nitric acid, Senku and Taiju revived Yuzuriha. Senku reveals to them that Shishio is a straight murderer and they could either run away and live life together or fight with him against the murders.
Yuzuriha is down to stay with the group and fight with them right away, which is great. I like that about her.
“Advance civilization and make better weapons of science.” – Senku
When Shishio gets back, a standoff occurs between the two groups. Shishio knocks Taiju out after he threats to kill Yuzuriha and tells them to stay out of his way or get killed.
Senku decides they need to create weapons of science to take Shishio down. They reach a Buddha statue where Senku harvests bronze and then they go to Mount Fuji to get resources to make gun powder.
Shishio is smart as well as athletic because he figures this out right away. As a result, he plans to stop them before Senku can create gun powder and stop him for good.
Previously on Dr. Stone, Taiju and Senku woke from their petrified stone state to find that 3700 years had passed and nature had reclaimed the world. They stayed away for the entire 3700 years. Taiju obsessed over his crush, Yuzuriha. Senku stayed awake by counting the day, time, and hours as they passed by.
Senku was freed 6 months before Taiju. This allowed him to develop a serum to free other humans from their rock state.
Fast forward to episode two.
Taiju is ready to use this serum on Yuzuriha. However, he hesitates because she will be naked once the rock shell falls off of her. Just as he’s arguing with Senku about this fact, a lion and his pride close in on them and force them to put everything on hold and run away.
As they run, Taiju determines that he needs to self-sacrifice to save Senku and Yuzuriha so that they can go on and rebuild civilization. However, Senku convinces him that that is a bad idea because he is the brawn in their duo and is needs to help rebuild life as they knew it.
Once Taiju rids the idea of self-sacrifice from his head, he decides to revive Shishio (a very strong former classmate of theirs). They run to his body and pour the serum on him. He wakes just in time to ask what the situation is.
“From now on, I’ll do the fighting” – Shishio
Senku gives him a brief but accurate description of the problem and Shishio springs into action by punching the lion in the face and scaring his pride away.
I find it hard to believe that a person could spend 3700 years in a rock and be able to move and fight without having an adjustment period, but hey whatever.
Shishio turns out to be a reliable hunter and fighter. Taiju remains a building and scavenger, while Senku remains the brains behind the operation.
However, Senku does have a bad feeling about Shishio. He’s worried that their ideals of bringing back every human may not line up with Shishio’s ideals. He expresses this feeling to Taiju, but he’s oblivious. As a result of his uneasiness, Senku omits some information about the uses of calcium carbonate.
He was right to do so.
“A man who praises another man to his face is full of ulterior motives.” – Senku
While gathering seashell supplies to create calcium carbonate with Taiju, Shishio finds an adult that is petrified. He knocks the adults head off and states that he wants a world of pure-hearted youth.
He feels that bringing adults back with offer gratitude for a time, but they will soon take over again, and force their unfair rulings over the land. So he plans to eliminate them before they can corrupt society again.
Senku stands up to Shishio. He tells him that he plans to awaken everyone regardless.
And the conflict begins!
