Dr. STONE NEW WORLD Part 2 Episode 14 – Quick Summary
In Dr. STONE NEW WORLD Part 2 episode 14, “Deal Game, Test of Wit,” things seemed to be going well for the Kingdom of Science. They had manufactured a small quantity of the revival fluid, and it had begun to restore their friends. But then Amaryllis brought the news of what happened to Kohaku and Ginrou to Senkuu. He was seriously, seriously displeased. How will Senkuu, Ryuus, Gen, and the rest respond? Especially since they all know they can’t keep their base hidden forever!

Favorite Quote from Dr. STONE NEW WORLD Part 2 Episode 14
Gen’s act was so convincing he had me fooled. Capture from the Crunchyroll stream.
I gotta say: I like Gen. I like how the show portrays him. In this episode, they had be believing Gen had lost – that Mozu had resisted Gen’s verbal attack. I thought maybe Mozu was too stubborn. Or maybe not intelligent enough? Some of Gen’s attacks rely on intelligence, after all. And Mozu is not that intelligent. Clever, sure. But he hasn’t been able to out maneuver Ibara in all this time.
My favorite quote is Senkuu reacting to Ukyou, who said he was shocked at how the conversation had changed – after it became apparent that it had gone exactly as Gen had wanted, despite how it had seemed at the time.
“The conversation was originally whether he was going to kill us all or not,” Senkuu said (18:26), where “he” meant Mozu. “Psychological reactance has him refusing to do as this sleazy man wants. We’re suddenly talking about working together!”
Remind me never to play poker against Gen! Though I’m not likely to forget…
Favorite Moment from Dr. STONE NEW WORLD Part 2 Episode 14
This is Senkuu’s “Someone is going to pay” expression. Capture from the Crunchyroll stream.
Senkuu’s a reserved man. He responds to the world intellectually. He doesn’t let his emotions overwhelm him. The guy remains in control even under the most dire of circumstances. That’s why my favorite moments this episode is a single shot.
Remember when Amaryllis brought the news that Kohaku and Ginrou had been petrified? She was weeping. The others, like Chrome, seemed shocked and dismayed. But not Senkuu. His expression made me sit up in my chair. He was absolutely livid.
Amaryllis watched what happened closely so she could report it. Capture from the Crunchyroll stream.
I don’t know how he feels about Kohaku. In the previous episode, when she described what she admired in a man, she might as well have been listing Senkuu’s personality traits. But I wasn’t quite sure how he felt about her. I still don’t know for sure. But I know this: he did not take the news of her petrification with his usual sense of reserve. She’s important to him – special – so special that the news pieced his calm. There was simply no way he was going to let this stand. I almost felt sorry for Ibara and Kirisame in that moment.
What did you think of Mozu popping up out of the water? What were your favorite moments? Feel free to let me know in the comments!
