Dr. Stone – Episode Guide


Episode 1: Stone World

Review: Dr. Stone Episode 01 – Best In Show

In Dr. Stone episode 01, “Stone World,” it was a normal high school day for Senkuu and Taiju Ooki. The former was busily figuring out how to solve the world’s fossil fuel problems, and the latter was once again not telling the girl of his dreams, Yuzuriha Ogawa, how he felt about her. There then two things very much out of the ordinarily happened. First, Taiju worked up the courage to confess his love. Second, just as he was speaking the words, a bright light overtook the world, and every single human turned to stone. Can even Senkuu’s brilliant scientific mind overcome being turned to stone? Will Taiju ever get to confess his love for Yuzuriha? Would she even hear it if he did?

Episode 2: King of the Stone World

Review: Dr. Stone Episode 02 – Best In Show

In Dr. Stone episode 02, “King of the Stone World,” Senkuu and Taiju Ooki prepare to revive Yuzuriha Ogawa, the young woman (now not so young — over 3,700 years old!) to whom Taiju wanted to confess his feelings. But Taiju discovered what was to him a huge problem: she would be naked when she revived, so he wanted to carry her back to camp first! Seeing Taiju’s resolve, Senkuu agreed, and they started back. That’s when they realized they weren’t alone: a pride of lions whose ancestors had lived in zoos attacked them. Cornered, they realized they had stopped by the stone statue of Tsukasa Shishiou, who they had nick named “Tarzan” before the were stoned. Using the acid they’d intended to use on Yuzuriha, they revived him, and he easily defeated the male lion. The others retreated. Taiju is elated: he himself is brawny, but he’s terrible at fighting. Senkuu is less enthusiastic. Can they trust Tsukasa, even though he’s bringing them plenty of game for food? Or does he have some other plan — a plan he could back up with ridiculous strength?

Review: Dr. Stone Episode 03 – Best In Show

In Dr. Stone episode 03, “Weapons of Science,” Senkuu’s hopes to keep the location of the reviving fluid secret are accidentally dashed when Taiju Ooki basically tells Tsukasa Shishiou where it is. Now, it’s a race against time: Can Senkuu and Taiju revive Yuzuriha Ogawa before Tsukasa gets back from the cave? And if they can’t, what can even Taiju do, as sturdy as he is, against a man who can kill a full grown lion with his bare hands?

Review: Dr. Stone Episode 04 – Best In Show

In Dr. Stone episode 04, “Fire the Smoke Signal,” Senkuu tries to teach Taiju Ooki and Yuzuriha Ogawa how to make gunpowder. The good news is that the operation is a success! The bad news is that they knew it was a success because it exploded! But in doing so, it triggered many answering smoke signals. Senkuu knows that Tsukasa Shishiou is closing in on them. If he finds them before Senkuu can create a weapon with the gunpowder, they’re done for. Will Senkuu attempt to communicate with the people who started the other signal fires? Will he focus on defending against Tsukasa? And will Taiju ever confess to Yuzuriha?

Review: Dr. Stone Episode 05 – Best In Show

Taiju Ooki and Yuzuriha Ogawa find themselves pitted against the powerful Tsukasa Shishiou — not to mention their own grief.

And even if Senkuu were still with them, would could his intellect do to save them — it having failed once already?

Will the extraordinary restorative power of the stone’s removal bring him back to life? Meanwhile, their gunpowder blast alerted other humans to their presence. One of those other humans, Kohaku, had been watching from a distance. Now, she approaches Tsukasa Shishiou with an arm full of flowers. What’s she up to? If she has intentions other than submission, what chance does someone as small as she is stand against the monster that is Tsukasa? And where did she come from, anyway?

Episode 7: Where Two Million Years Have Gone

Review: Dr. Stone Episode 07 – Best In Show

In Dr. Stone episode 07, “Where Two Million Years Have Gone,” Kohaku decides to take Senkuu back to her village. As soon as he arrives, Ginrou and Kinrou deny him access, because he’s an outsider. Kohaku threatens to duel them, and it was clear that the two of them knew that she would likely take both of them in a fight — even if they fought together — so it was a good thing that the village sorcerer Chrome choose that moment to reveal himself. Will Chrome’s tricks, as impressive as they are to Kohaku, Ginrou, and Kinrou, have any effect on Senkuu whatsoever? How will Chrome react to Senkuu’s own brand of “sorcery?” And what in the world has Chrome been collecting in his hut outside of the village?

Episode 8: Stone Road

Review: Dr. Stone Episode 08 – Best In Show

In Dr. Stone episode 08, “Stone Road,” Senkuu creates an elaborate flow chart to explain to Chrome and Kohaku how they’re going to create penicillin. It’s overwhelming to them, but they set out to gather the materials they need — including magnets and iron sand. With the help of their new recruit, Suika, they make great progress. However, getting their furnace hot enough to make iron proves beyond their current capabilities. How can they recruit more people, especially since the village leaders want to keep strangers — strangers like Senkuu — out? How much longer does Kohaku’s sister, Ruri, have without penicillin? And is there anything Kohaku can do to make Senkuu and Chrome carry their weight when gathering materials?

Review: Dr. Stone Episode 09 – Best In Show

In Dr. Stone episode 09, “Let There Be the Light of Science,” SenkuuChromeKohaku, and Suika are busily bribing the villagers with ramen. Suddenly, a stranger draws attention to himself, and Kohaku and the two guards Ginrou and Kinrou surround him. They learn his name is Gen Asagiri, a contemporary of Senkuu, who says he’s been all alone since he un-petrified. But given how well he’s dressed, it that even possible? Is he really a spy for Tsukasa Shishiou? Even more important, will the ramen be enough to bribe the villagers into helping Senkuu make steel?

Episode 10: A Flimsy Alliance

Review: Dr. Stone Episode 10 – Best In Show

In Dr. Stone episode 10, “A Flimsy Alliance,” the question of Gen Asagiri takes a back seat when Magma, a thug who wants to take over the village, mistakes Gen for Senkuu and brutally attacks the man, leaving him for dead. Kohaku tells Senkuu that Magma tried to win the yearly tournament; a tournament that would have let him take over as village elder by marrying Ruri, Kohaku’s sister. However, Kohaku overheard Magma saying that he didn’t want to deal with taking care of her, so after the marriage, he might arrange for her to have a swimming accident. He was less than pleased when Kohaku entered the tournament just to defeat him — and succeeded. Easily. Can our heroes stop Magma from his rampage again since they’ve rescheduled the tournament — and forbade Kohaku from participating? Will Senkuu even be able to give Ruri medicine if Magma becomes the leader? And did Gen survive the brutal spear attack?

Episode 11: Clear World

Review: Dr. Stone Episode 11 – Best In Show

In Dr. Stone episode 11, “Clear World,” Senkuu sets his sights on the next critical element for achieving an antibiotic: glass. With help from ChromeKohakuSuika, they gather all of the materials they need. They fashion an iron pipe to help shape the glass. They try to make glass vessels like beakers or cups — and they utterly fail. Senkuu’s used to the scientific method; he knows failures are just steps on the road to success. But Chrome has a better idea, and he rushes into the village to fetch a local craftsman. He comes back with Kaseki — all tied up as a prisoner! Will Senkuu be able to convince Kaseki to help them now that they’ve treated him so roughly? Do they have any hope of creating the class vessels they need for chemistry within the next six months if they can’t convince him? And what do they discover about why Suika wears the melon rind on her head?

Episode 12: Buddies Back to Back

Review: Dr. Stone Episode 12 – Best In Show

In Dr. Stone episode 12, “Buddies Back to Back,” Senkuu continues the search for the ingredients he’ll need to make antibiotics, and now the time has come for the most dangerous part: finding sulfuric acid. It’s dangerous because if places where it occurs naturally, the gas accompanying it is instantly lethal. Senkuu bribes Ginrou to be their guard with a silver-tipped spear. Why silver? Because it reacts with the gas and might give them a chance to back away before they die. Can Senkuu, Chrome, and Kohaku find a naturally occurring source of sulfuric acid? If they do, can they retrieve it without dying? And why does Senkuu seem to think it’s up to him to do it alone?

Episode 13: Masked Warrior

Review: Dr. Stone Episode 13 – Best In Show

In Dr. Stone episode 13, “Masked Warrior,” SenkuuKohakuChrome, and Suika gather the final ingredients for antibiotics. They’ve finished collecting the most dangerous ingredient — at least dangerous from the perspective of the ingredient itself potentially killing them. Because when Kohaku learns the source of the last ingredient, she seemed on the verge of killing Senkuu and Chrome herself. Meanwhile, Kinrou and Ginrou continue their preparations to battle Magma. Will their extensive preparations — some bordering on illegal! — help Kinrou win? Or will Magma’s minions come up with a scheme to derail them?

Episode 14: Master of Flame

Review: Dr. Stone Episode 14 – Best In Show

In Dr. Stone episode 14, “Master of Flame,” Kinrou’s honesty proves his undoing as Magma stages a comeback while Kinrou consults with the referee. Kohaku still hasn’t returned from searching for Suika, and if she doesn’t make it back before her bout starts, she’ll be disqualified. That would leave Chrome to face Magma — and we all know what his chances are. Can Kohaku make it back in time? If not, can even Senkuu think of anything to do to improve Chrome’s chances?

Episode 15: The Culmination of Two Million Years

Review: Dr. Stone Episode 15 – Best In Show

In Dr. Stone episode 15, “The Culmination of Two Million Years,” now that Chrome has defeated Magma, the way seems to be clear for Chrome to become chief. But an innocent comment from Ruri drives Ginrou to unheard of levels of performance in his bout against Senkuu. Can the scientist evade the inflamed Ginrou? Can he come up with a scientific counter attack? Most importantly, will Gen ever get his cola? Or will the ingredients go to Ruri’s medicine? And how will Gen react to that?

Episode 16: A Tale for the Ages

Review: Dr. Stone Episode 16 – Best In Show

In Dr. Stone episode 16, “A Tale for the Ages,” Ruri told Senkuu that the village he’s now chief of bears his name: Ishigami Village. He was shocked. Is it just coincidence? A scientific mind like Senkuu’s wouldn’t accept any kind of mystic answer, that’s for sure. Ruri’s story, though, is even more strange than Senkuu imagined. It involves his father — as in the man who raised him over 3,000 years ago — and a ring-side seat for the petrification of humanity. How will Senkuu react the story? Will it affect how his supporters like Kohaku see him? And what does it mean for their future?

Episode 17: A Hundred Nights and a Thousand Skies

Review: Dr. Stone Episode 17 – Best In Show

In Dr. Stone episode 17, “A Hundred Nights and a Thousand Skies,” Byakuya Ishigami was determined to return to the surface and find a way to save all seven billion humans. Shamil Volkov, however, made a compelling argument, punctuated with a punch to Byakuya’s gut, that the astronauts without family should try it first. After all, what if they land, only to become petrified? Shamil used a capsule to return to Earth with Lillian Weinberg and Connie Lee. Without any ground support, their landed off course, in the water, upside down. Can Byakuya figure out a way to save them? If he does, can they survive on a deserted island without any modern infrastructure — or medicine?

Episode 18: Stone Wars

Review: Dr. Stone Episode 18 – Best In Show

In Dr. Stone episode 18, “Stone Wars,” Gen warned that Tsukasa’s army was coming to attack the village. His warning came almost too late, because at that moment, Kinrou was holding the bridge against invaders. Most were simply muscle bound brutes with no sense, but one of then, Hyoga, might have rivaled Tsukasa in intelligence and cunning. While Kinrou was able to hold the bridge against the brutes, he soon found himself being forced to retreat by Hyoga and his kuda-yari, a type of spear. With the enemy already at the gates, what can SenkuKohaku, and the others do to protect themselves? Can they keep the invaders back? Or will the kingdom of science become just another state in the kingdom of might?

Episode 19: To Modernity

Review: Dr. Stone Episode 19 – Best In Show

In Dr. Stone episode 19, “To Modernity“, a brief flashback showed us Tsukasa Shishiou un-stoning Hyoga. The muscle-bound, less mentally agile of Tsukasa’s followers berate Hyoga for being so scrawny and weak, but their taunts don’t last for long. Meanwhile, we get to see that Tsukasa has built quite a following. Their cave homes looked to be the size of a small city, and his people adored him. What does this mean for Senkuu and his village? We get a partial answer as the narrative returns to the battle. Senkuu, Kohaku, and the others pushed back Hyoga and his forces, but they didn’t notice that another of Tsukasa’s agents, Homura, had used the main battle as a diversion. She busily set fire to the village. Everyone streamed out conflagration toward the waiting invaders. How will Senkuu and his friends save the villagers now?

Episode 20: The Age of Energy

Review: Dr. Stone Episode 20 – Best In Show

In Dr. Stone episode 20, “The Age of Energy,” Senkuu explained his smart phone plans to KohakuGenChrome, and the others. Chrome followed some of its complexity; Kohaku got a bit lost. Gen, though, understood enough of it to know that they had a lot of hard work ahead of them. What he wasn’t prepared for, though, were Senkuu’s plans to make cotton candy. With Homura watching their every move and reporting back to Hyoga, do they really have time for a carnival treat? How will that help them make modern electronics? And what idea did Chrome come up with that made him rush off with a fired up Kaseki in tow (or vice versa)?

Episode 21: Spartan Crafts Club

Review: Dr. Stone Episode 21 – Best In Show

In Dr. Stone episode 21, “Spartan Crafts Club,” Senkuu generated a lot of excitement when the villagers learned that the water wheel, and the electrical generator it now powered, meant they won’t have to do some of the hard physical labor associated with manufacturing. It also gives them the means to make the next components in their quest for cell phones. Unfortunately, even with Kaseki applying all his skill, one of the components is proving problematic: vacuum tubes. And without those, it’s game over for their communications advantage! With fall slipping away into winter, and with options dwindling, will they find a way to keep their miracle streak alive? Or are they destined to become thralls in the Kingdom of Might — or worse?

Episode 22: The Treasure

Review: Dr. Stone Episode 22 – Best In Show

In Dr. Stone episode 22, “The Treasure,” the entire village — except maybe Senkuu himself — was worried. Senkuu and Chrome were heading into a cave to search for tungsten, and Senkuu had decided that adding Magma was a good idea. The rest of the village was convinced they’d never see Senkuu and Chrome again. Has Senkuu lost his mind? Does he know something the others don’t? And just what does Gen whisper to Magma as the explorers are about to leave?

Episode 23: Wave of Science

Review: Dr. Stone Episode 23 – Best In Show

In Dr. Stone episode 23, “Wave of Science,” Senkuu showed just how smart he really is: he knew that he couldn’t finish the cell phone project himself. So, he enlisted Chrome to build the furnace to temper the tungsten, Kaseki to build a mammoth vacuum tube assembly engine, and Gen to assemble new batteries. Even the kids like Suika got involved! But the obstacles are many, and their time is short. Can the team handle their assignments? Can Chrome, even calling on all of his experience and new learning, built a furnace that’s hot enough — but not too hot? And can they all finish on time?

Episode 24: Voices Over Infinite Distance

Review: Dr. Stone Episode 24 – Best In Show

In Dr. Stone episode 24, “Voices Over Infinite Distance,” Senkuu powered up the new cell phone, and the village cheered when it came on line. Ruri marveled that they could send their voices over the air waves. Suika could barely speak. Everyone was in high spirits until Kohaku asked what was, in retrospect, the obvious question: How would they receive the calls this new device would make? Senkuu pretends he had forgotten about that, but Gen saw through the deception: he’d known all along and didn’t want the villagers to get discouraged at the amount of work! Before they build the second, they wanted to conduct a test of the first. It went well until Ruri said something that shocked Senkuu — and that would shock the villagers, too.
