New World Part 1

Dr. Stone: New World is the third season of the Dr. Stone anime. After the original season, there was Stone Wars. And after Stone Wars, there was the Ryuusui OVA. New World comes after the OVA. And in case you’re wondering, yes, the OVA is canon.

If you don’t watch the Ryuusui OVA before New World, you’re going to be a bit lost. The OVA introduces two new characters, one of which is very important. And, it sets up what’s going to happen in New World. Think of it like New World Episode 0.

So, what happens in New World? A portion of the Kingdom of Science’s citizens set out on an adventure. And there are three things they’re looking for.

1. The origin of the petrification beam.
2. The origin of the “Why Man” radio signal.
3. The Soyuz space capsule.

This search leads Senkuu and his companions to an island that may hold all three. But, is that a blessing or a curse? If this island is the source of the petrification beam, its inhabitants may be enemies. However, the Soyuz capsule might also contain the materials needed to save the world.

Now, there’s one thing I’ve glossed over so far that you may have noticed in the title of this section. This season is only Part 1 of the arc. Unlike the previous seasons, the arc doesn’t get wrapped up within these 11 episodes.

There is good news for Dr. Stone fans, though. You won’t have to wait long for New World Part 2. It’s set to air in the fall of 2023. So, while this part focused mainly on the setup, the next part should be better. It should give us the answers to our questions.

New Characters

There are five new characters in this season. Two are on the side of the Kingdom of Science. And three are part of the enemy nation. I’m not sure if that nation has a name that we know. But, whatever it’s called, they’re the bad guys.

Soyuz is the first new character. He’s actually a member of the Kingdom of Science and one of the Ishigami villagers. But, it turns out that he’s not originally from the village. He was born on the island Senkuu & Co. are heading to. And, as you may have guessed, he was named after the Soyuz capsule.

Amaryllis is the next new character. She’s an inhabitant of the island. But, she’s part of a rebel force that wants to overthrow the island’s leader. So, it was only natural for her to team up with the Kingdom of Science.

Ibara is a high-ranking official on the island and the main antagonist. He doesn’t actually do much in this season. But, he’s clearly the bad guy. His job is to gather the prettiest girls from the island and present them to the island’s leader.

Mozu is one of the two strongest warriors on the island. Ibara is the brains of the operation and Mozu is the muscle. If someone’s not complying with Ibara’s orders, Mozu gets involved. He’s also very interested in cute girls, which sometimes puts him at odds with Ibara’s job.

Kirisame is the other strongest warrior on the island. Like Mozu, she serves Ibara and enforces his policies. However, what makes Kirisame unique is her use of a petrification device. She has a device that, when thrown, emits a short-range petrification beam. Unfortunately, we don’t know how this technology works or why Kirisame was chosen to wield it.

Mystery of the Petrification

Obviously, Kirisame having petrification technology is a big deal. Does that mean this island is where the original petrification beam came from? That seems pretty unlikely. The petrification beam supposedly came from the other side of the world (the Americas).

So, how did the islanders get their hands on this technology? Did they somehow develop it themselves? Did someone give it to them? Neither answer makes very much sense. After all, we know that the islanders are the descendants of the Soyuz astronauts. That means their ancestors had nothing to do with the petrification event.

So, if someone gave the islanders the petrification technology, it happened later. It must have happened after the deaths of the Soyuz astronauts. This is because they would have recognized what the petrification beam was. That’s why we know it must have come to the island at a later date.

There’s another piece of evidence pointing toward the petrification beam being a gift. If the islanders developed this technology themselves, why does only Kirisame have it? Surely, others such as Mozu and Ibara would have the ability to petrify people, as well. Since they don’t, we can assume this technology is rare.

And, the technology being rare is actually a good thing. It means that if the Kingdom of Science can destroy it, it’s gone for good. The islanders won’t be able to reproduce it. Also, it’s not like the Kingdom of Science needs to keep it intact.

Senkuu has no need for the petrification beam. Using it on people would go against the mission of the Kingdom of Science: to revive all of humanity. And he doesn’t need the beam’s technology to figure out how to undo the petrification. He already knows how to accomplish that with platinum.


Dr. Stone: New World is a 6/10. I’m a known Dr. Stone hater, so if you think it’s better than that, fine. But, I thought this season was pretty okay. I didn’t dislike it quite as much as the previous seasons. And part of that may be because I was interested in the mystery this time.

Manifest Destiny

Dr. Stone: Ryusui (Dr. Stone: Ryuusui / Dr.STONE 龍水) is a special episode that takes place between Seasons 2 and 3. Dr. Stone: Stone Wars is Season 2 and Dr. Stone: New World is Season 3. Ryusui is also canon, which means you should watch it before Season 3.

And, that’s exactly why I watched it this week. I originally planned to skip this special because I figured it wouldn’t matter. But, since it’s canon, I figured I should watch it since I’m going to be watching Season 3 as it airs.

Well, I plan to watch Season 3 as it airs. But, because I put off watching Ryusui, I’m a week behind now. Still, it’s not hard to catch up on a single episode. And since I’m not reviewing the newest season of Dr. Stone on a weekly basis, there’s no pressure.

As for the plot of Ryusui, it sets up the next hurdle for the Kingdom of Science to get over. Previously, we saw the Kingdom of Science forge an alliance with the Tsukasa Empire. Now, the two groups are working together to get to the bottom of the mystery of the petrification event.

All they know right now is that the event started somewhere on the other side of the world. That, and the fact that the next season is called “New World” implies it came from the Americas. But, how is the Kingdom of Science supposed to get there from Japan?

The answer is simple: they’re going to sail. Sailing is the easiest way to cross the ocean with the Kingdom’s current level of technology. But, crossing an entire ocean is no small feat. To do this, they’ll not only need a sturdy ship, but an experienced captain.

Ryusui Nanami

Unfortunately for the Kingdom of Science, they don’t have an experienced captain. But, fortunately for them, they do have a former reporter with a superpower. She can find anyone with any skill the Kingdom requires. And she knows just the person to revive as the new captain.

The man chosen for the job is Ryusui Nanami. He’s the son of a wealthy businessman who owned a variety of companies in Japan. And, as a hobby, he sailed ships. No, not boats. Ships. And, this is what made him the perfect candidate.

Sure, they could have revived an experienced captain. But, they’d likely only be experienced with modern ships. What the Kingdom of Science needs is someone experienced with sailing ships. And throughout this special episode, Ryusui proves himself to be just that. He’s a master of reading the wind, which will be a vital skill.

There’s a major problem with Ryusui, though. Due to his upbringing, his personality isn’t great. He’s materialistic, obsessed with money, and thinks of himself as being above others. Ryusui is also a ruthless businessman. However, that doesn’t mean he has the brains to back that up, as Senku can still control him.

For example, one of the first things Ryusui does is negotiate his price for being the captain. The ship is going to be a hybrid that uses sails as well as an engine. And to power the engine, the Kingdom needs oil. As compensation for his services, Ryusui wants ownership of the oil.

He then plans to sell the oil to the Kingdom of Science. And to facilitate this sale, he prints his own money. That’s right, Ryusui created the first economy of the new age. But, Senku is able to turn this economy to his advantage.

First Flight

While some members of the Kingdom work on building the ship, others need to find oil. That doesn’t sound very easy, to me. And due to the landscape changes over the past 3,000 years, it’s more difficult than Senku thought it would be.

Without an accurate map of the terrain, it’s going to be hard to find oil. But, walking around on foot and making a map the old-fashioned way would take too long. So, the solution Senku comes up with, thanks to Suika’s comment, is to fly. It’ll be much easier to draw a map when you can look down on the terrain.

At this stage, powered flight is out of the question. From what I remember, they do have access to batteries. So, you may think they could build an electric aircraft. But, the batteries they have are large, heavy, and not very good at storing energy.

So, Senku decides to create a hot air balloon out of hemp. Hot air balloons are among the simplest ways to fly. Though, they’re not very good when it comes to controlling where you’re flying. But, luckily, as I mentioned earlier, Ryusui is an expert at reading the wind.

He, Senku, and Chrome hop in the balloon’s basket for its maiden voyage. And their destination is Ishigami Village, which would be a 2-day trek. By air, the travel time is only about 2 hours. However, not everything goes as planned during this trip (of course).

The trio runs into a thunderstorm and the balloon gets damaged by an earlier run-in with a bird. But, Ryusui is still able to navigate them out of the storm and to safety. Something I noticed, though, is that after the storm, the damage is miraculously gone. My immersion, ruined.


As much as I don’t want to admit it, I thought Dr. Stone: Ryusui was pretty good. I gave both previous seasons of the series 5/10 ratings. But, at the end of this special, I rated it a 7/10. Don’t expect my rating of New World to remain that high, though.

Dr. Stone: Stone Wars

Dr. Stone: Stone Wars

Season Overview

Dr. Stone: Stone Wars (ドクターストーン STONE WARS) is the second season of the Dr. Stone anime series. Compared to the 24 episodes of the first season, this season is considerably shorter, at only 11 episodes. But, I don’t think that’s a bad thing.

Spoilers Incoming

The Stone Wars season covers the “war” between Senku’s Kingdom of Science and the Tsukasa Empire, lead by Tsukasa, of course. The only thing is, it’s not really much of a war. It’s a single attack by the Kingdom of Science on the Tsukasa Empire that lasts about 1 episode.

You may recall from the first season that Senku’s plan for defeating the Tsukasa Empire is to use information warfare. If Senku can create a radio with which to contact Taiju and Yuzuriha, he can outmaneuver Tsukasa’s forces and win the war without bloodshed.

That’s what this second season is all about. The entire season focuses on the construction of a two-way radio, sneaking one of the radios into the Tsukasa Empire, and then using it to bring Tsukasa’s allies over to Senku’s side.

This season also features some new characters who I wasn’t all that impressed with. To be fair, I don’t really care about any of the cast. But the newer characters in particular felt a bit out of place.

For example, Tsukasa’s trying to create the ultimate army of useful people, and one of them is just a fangirl of a singer. Maybe there was something else to her character, but I honestly can’t remember what. And another guy was just a former prison guard with nothing special about him. Yet, these are some of Tsukasa’s elite forces.

The Same, But Slightly Worse

The reason I think it’s good that the second season of Dr. Stone is less than half the length of the first season is that it’s basically the same thing, but slightly worse. One of the biggest problems is that Stone Wars is very linear, as I alluded to in the previous section.

In the first season, there are a lot of detours along the way to Senku’s relatively minor goal of taking down Tsukasa. Things go wrong, and Senku is forced to adapt and go down a different path temporarily. But, these detours still end in inventions that will further Senku’s ultimate goal of reintroducing modern technology to the stone world.

This type of storytelling framework was good because it kept the story progressing while also not falling into a predictable rhythm. The second season basically throws that away in favor of a direct route to the minor goal.

Unfortunately, the linear nature of this season is also what leads to the second issue. Despite the fact that a lot of the science in Dr. Stone is dumbed-down, or flat out wrong, I will admit that Senku using this “science” to invent things was probably the most entertaining part.

But there’s not much of that in the second season. Senku still does invent some things, like paper armor, but nothing exciting. You could argue that the radio he makes is exciting, but the explanation is so simple that it’s not satisfying.

To be fair, my expectations for this series are probably too high. It’s just a generic shounen series. It was never going to have a great story, characters, or complex topics. So in that regard, I guess Dr. Stone is exactly what it’s supposed to be — easily digestible entertainment you can put on and not pay much attention to.

The Ultimate Twist

Something that a lot of these anime with “extremely smart” characters do is that they pull really stupid plot twists out of thin air and pretend like the protagonist, or whoever the smart character is, figured it all out. This is a major complaint I have with Death Note, for example.

Dr. Stone has its own version of this trope, and it was just as bad as any other, if not worse. Without any lead-in, it was randomly revealed that the reason Tsukasa is doing everything he’s doing is that he wants to save his younger sister who’s never been mentioned before.

When this is revealed, the viewer is supposed to be surprised by Senku’s genius. After all, he was able to figure out Tsukasa’s true motivation when nobody else could! But there’s one problem. No matter how smart Senku is, this isn’t something he could ever figure out with the information at his disposal.

There’s absolutely no evidence to support Senku’s claim. I don’t remember the exact “evidence” he gives since this was weeks ago and Dr. Stone isn’t important enough for me to remember all the details.

But basically, his evidence was that Tsukasa is a “protector.” So, therefore, he must have been wanting to protect someone important to him, such as a younger sibling. And why does his younger sibling need protecting? Because she’s been in a coma for (thousands of) years.

You can’t get from “Tsukasa is actually a nice guy who protected me when we first met” to “Tsukasa has a younger sister he’s never mentioned who’s in a coma and he murders people in order to save her.” There’s very obviously a huge gap in that logic.


Although I do think that Dr. Stone: Stone Wars is worse than the first season of Dr. Stone, I’ve ended up giving it the same score: 5/10. It’s worse, but I still think it’s “average,” not “bad.” I dislike it, but that alone doesn’t make something bad.

What I will say is actually bad, though, is the OP for this season. The Stone Wars OP is very bad. The song doesn’t really match the visuals, and the visuals are garbage. I’m sorry if you like the OP, but it’s just not good.

My review of Dr. Stone: Ryusui is available now.

Dr. Stone

Dr. Stone

Dr. Stone


Dr. Stone (ドクターストーン) isn’t one of my favorite anime. I’m sorry to everyone who loved this series, but I need to mention that right from the start so you don’t get your hopes up. And from what I’ve experienced, those of you who love this series are extremely opposed to evidence of its shortcomings.

But, hopefully you’ll take the time to actually understand what I’m saying in this review. And if you disagree with anything I say, or have questions about why I said the things I did, I’m more than happy to have a discussion with you in the comments or over on Discord.

And with that said, it’s not like I hate Dr. Stone. This series had a good premise, but unfortunately wasn’t able to live up to that premise for a number of reasons. I also recognize the fact that this is a shounen series, which means I’m not the target demographic.

So, for everyone who hasn’t seen Dr. Stone, what is it about? Basically everyone on Earth gets turned to stone during some sort of petrification event. Then, 3,700 years later, our protagonist breaks free from the petrification and sets off on his plan to rebuild the world.

And one major part of this plan is to “revive” everyone else who was petrified. Senku is similar to most shounen protagonists in that regard. He doesn’t just want to rebuild the world — he wants to save everyone.

Like I said, it’s a good premise for an anime, and it would allow for a lot of historical topics I’m personally interested in to be explored, but the series falls short. Instead, what we get is a series which at some parts feels like it’s ripping of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure, and at other times is teaching children semi-correct science.


Rather than going through individual characters, let’s go through them in groups. The first group is Senku (the protagonist) and his friends from school, Taiju and Yuzuriha. While Senku is the brains of the operation, Taiju is the brawn. Together they make the perfect team.

But then we throw Yuzuriha into the mix, and even after watching the entire first season I’m still not sure what she brings to the table. As far as I can tell she’s just the token female character of the main trio.

Taiju and a broken “statue”

The Tsukasa empire is the next group, which is the antagonistic group of the series so far. I’m guessing at some point the Tsukasa empire has to be defeated and the series won’t end there, but I’m not entirely sure. This group is dedicated to being “anti-science,” and no, there’s not a good reason for this to be the case.

Basically, they don’t want the entire world to be revived from petrification. And since Senku does want that, and is also very much into science, the Tsukasa empire takes an anti-science stance simply because it’s the opposite of Senku’s stance.

The final I’ll just refer to as the stone village, because the name of the village isn’t actually revealed until later in the series. This is a village made up of people who were born and raised post-petrification event. They don’t really know anything about the world of 3,700 years ago.

This village is also where we spend the majority of the series, and some of the notable characters are Kohaku, Chrome, Kinro, Ginro, and Suika (I guess). The most important is Chrome, because although he doesn’t know what science is, he’s a scientist at heart.


I’ve discussed the issues with the science in this series at length in my episode reviews. So instead, let’s discuss how the “science” of this series actually diverted the series from the premise it laid out at the start: which is to rebuild and save humanity. And yes, this section will include spoilers.

Dr. Stone sort of advertised itself as this science x history series which was going to go through all the major scientific developments throughout human history. However, it quickly became apparent that this wasn’t actually going to happen, which is a shame because it seems a lot of people, myself included, were looking forward to that.

But that in itself isn’t really an issue. Just because a series isn’t how I wanted it to be doesn’t make it a failure.

Senku holding a gun

It didn’t take long for Senku to reinvent gunpowder, which would make taking down Tsukasa relatively easy. However, that would also eliminate the major conflict of the series, so that obviously can’t happen. To prevent this, we get some mental gymnastics on the part of the author.

It goes like this: Tsukasa figures out that Senku is making gunpowder (because apparently he’s also a super genius). Then there’s a weak excuse for why Senku can no longer make gunpowder. And then Senku decides to build a whole bunch of other inventions to take down Tsukasa in a roundabout way.

However, none of his new inventions will actually take down Tsukasa. He still needs either gunpowder, or the talk-no-jutsu. And since this is a shounen series, I have a feeling the latter is what we’re going to see in the end.


Overall, Dr. Stone is a 5/10 from me. It’s almost a 6, but not quite. There were just way too many flaws with the logic of the series for my liking. And that’s especially egregious considering this series advertises itself as a science series.

If you really want a more in-depth look at this series, I did weekly reviews for every episode. In those reviews I discussed the specific issues I had with the science of each episode, so they’ll give you a much better understanding of why I have this series rated as I do.

My review of the second season: Stone Wars is available.

Dr. Stone Episode 24

Dr. Stone Episode 24

Voices Over Infinite Distance

We’ve finally made it to the end of Dr. Stone. Or should I say, the end of Dr. Stone season 1, because season 2 was confirmed. And while I don’t particularly want to watch season 2, of course I’m going to. So when that finally comes out, tweet at me or something to let me know if you want it to come back as a weekly review.

If you’re a “fan” of Dr. Stone, that’s great and all, but I’m so glad this series is over so I won’t have to see people talking about it anymore. Yes, it’s a fine anime, but that’s all it is.

But as for this episode in particular, I’m going to have to go ahead and say it was bad. I know some of you will probably want to defend it, and you’re free to do so in the comments, or on Twitter, or over on Discord. But this was basically a recap episode as the final episode of the season.

Once the (first of two) radios was complete, I figured we’d just skip to the second one being complete and then get into some action. You know, have Senku, Chrome, Kohaku, and Magma infiltrate the Tsukasa Empire and deliver one to Taiju and Yuzuriha. But no, once the radio is done we move on to recap.

3,700 Year Old Record

By now you should know how I feel about characters breaking out into song for no real reason in anime — I don’t like it. And that was basically the main purpose of the record Senku finds, which his father and his companions had left behind.

When we first learned about the record I figured maybe we’d get a bit more backstory on Senku’s relationship with his father, but that’s not the case. Didn’t we learn at one point that Senku was adopted or something? Is that ever going to be relevant in the story?

Or was that just stated because Kohaku is technically a descendant of Byakuya, so then it would be frowned upon for Senku to end up in a relationship with her. Not that I think Senku is ever going to end up in a relationship with anyone in this series.

Unfortunately, the only flashback we got involved Byakuya & co. working together to create this record which they left for Senku to find.

However, this record could turn out to be more interesting than it seems. We don’t know what else was on it. Was it simply Byakuya’s introduction and then the song? Or was there perhaps other information preserved on this record after the song that we didn’t get to hear?

And what about the other records? It seemed to be implied that there was a record hidden within the tomb stones of each of the founders. So what information could be hidden on those records, if they exist? We’ll probably never know.

Season Recap

As I’ve already mentioned, the entire middle section of the episode basically just recapped the major events of the season. We got to see Senku finishing some of his inventions, and we had characters reminding us of what happened in the past.

I’m not sure what other series I’ve brought this up in regards to, but you should never end a season with a recap episode. Instead, you should include an “episode 0” at the beginning of the next season for those who want to be reminded of the previous season’s events.

There are many times I get to a second season which comes out years after the first, and they dive right into the action. In those cases, I’d really like to have had a quick recap. And in those cases, a recap episode in the previous season isn’t going to help. You think I’ll remember that Dr. Stone episode 24 was a recap episode by the time season 2 comes out? Of course not.

The Future of Stone

Now before I conclude this episode review, I want to touch on the future of this series. And by that I mean both the second season and what Senku has planned for the future of Ishigami village. Starting with the latter, Senku tells Chrome, and the other villagers, that there’s a whole lot more entertainment in the “future” than just music.

He mentions, games, movies, manga, you name it. And I did enjoy the visuals which were added to go along with the things he was listing off, so let’s go through those.

First we have Dungeons & Dragons; then some sort of VR video game; I’m not quite sure what’s next, but it looks like Dragon Ball was based on it; then a movie theater; 10,000 Leagues Under the Sea; Jurassic Park; then Sherlock Holmes; War of the Worlds (the original, not the US radio broadcast); a Nintendo Switch; and finally, Goku from Dragon Ball Z.

Goku from Dragon Ball Z

Of these entertainment inventions, which do you think we’ll see next in the series? My guess is that in season 2 we’ll have the introduction of movies. We already have recorded audio this season, so recorded video seems like the logical next step.

And speaking of season 2, it’s going to cover the “stone wars” arc, which means we’ll finally have Ishigami Village fighting against the Tsukasa Empire. Though, I don’t really see this series becoming a battle series. While there will definitely be fights, I don’t think they’ll be all that different from those we’ve seen so far.

Rather than true fights, we’ll get to see how science can defeat aggressive combatants while causing zero casualties. I bet Tsukasa won’t even be killed when they finally defeat him.


What did you think of Dr. Stone episode 24? Did you like it? Hate it? Do you think having a recap episode as the final episode is a good or bad idea? And, how many of the references did you pick up on when Senku was listing off all the entertainment options in the “future?” Let me know in the comments.
