Dr. Stone: Two Nations of the Stone World (S01, E06) | (recap)

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

Senku, Dr. Stone

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.

Shishio, Senku, Taiju, Yuzuriha, Dr. Stone

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.

Kohaku, Dr. Stone

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.

Dr. Stone: Weapons of Science (s01, e03) | (recap)

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.

Spoilers ahead

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.

Dr. Stone: King of the Stone World (S01 E02 ) | (recap)

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.

Spoilers ahead

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

Shishio, dr. stone episode 2

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

Senku, episode 2 of Dr. Stone

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!

Dr. Stone: S01 E01 | Stone World (recap)

I’ve never heard of Dr. Stone before it’s release this month, but if every human turned to stone and centuries passed before my stone cast broke away and I was intact, I’d want a friend like Senku awake too.

There was not a lot of character development in this first episode, but we at least know that if you stayed conscious during your petrified stone state, eventually you would crack open fully aware of what happened.

Season 1, Episode 1 – Stone World

Yuzuriha Ogawa, Dr. Stone, crunchy roll

We meet two important characters right away, including Senku (a scientific genius well above his high school years) and Taiju (a standard high school boy with a mega crush on Yuzuriha – a girl he plans to express his feelings to outside of school).

Unfortunately, before Taiju can express his feelings a bright green light spreads through the land and petrifies every human alive. Doesn’t matter if they are inside a building or outside, they turn to stone.

“The date is October 5, 5738” – Senku

We follow Taiju through the seasons and years that pass after the green light flooded the earth. The animals take back territory and nature reclaims the structures that were built during the human-dominated era.

Taiju managed to stay conscious during the centuries that he was petrified due to his obsession with confessing his love for Yuzuriha. Eventually, his stone cracks away and he is miraculously okay.

He has drifted quite a ways away from the schoolyard where he planned to confess his love, but he manages to make his way back to the school’s previous location. Luckily he finds Yuzuriha still there in her petrified state. He also sees a messaged etched into the tree behind her.

“Follow the river idiot” – Senku

Senku Ishigami and Taiju Ōki, Dr Stone, Crunchyroll

Senku leaves a message scratched into the tree behind Yuzuriha’s head. The message prompts Taiju to meet up with Senku who has been awake for 6 months and managed to stay awake by counting the days to prevent himself from going unconscious.

First of all, can we just take a moment to appreciate the trust that Senku had in his friend Taiju?

He expected his friend to be alive. We see that he has those high expectations at the beginning of the episode as well. Senku offers Taiju a love potion to win Yuzuriha’s heart, but Taiju says no.

Turns out the potion was actually gasoline, but Senku had no doubts that Taiju was going to say no. We’ll probably see that same expectation through out the entire series until something drastic happens and trust is broken.

Maybe.

Turns out Senku, being the scientific genius we know him as, has figured out a way to de-petrify humans from their stone state. Senku and Taiju create the formula and test it out on birds until they get the combination correct!

Finally, the bird is freed of the stone!
