With Dr. Stone’s 3rd season on its way. I believe it is the PERFECT time to re-watch the previous one. However, re-watching takes a LOT of time and we know that your time is precious. In order to keep track of what is going on, here is a Recap of the Second Season of Dr. Stone. This season was all about Senku vs Tsukasa AKA Stone War. It comprised 13 episodes and we’ll take a look at them one by one.
Senku and the others had finally managed to build a cell phone. It will give them a HUGE edge over their enemies in the war. According to Senku, there is another thing they need and that is INSTANT RAMEN!!! The villagers hated the idea of it, but when they added hot water and tasted it, their brains just went BLANK with how good it tasted.
Senku and Gen had planned to use Lilian’s voice to lure over some members of Tsukasa’s army. They wanted to give them hope that the US is still intact and a ship is coming to help them. And all of this should be in Lilian’s voice so that they believe. Let’s see how this plan unfolds.
It was time for Senku and the others to install the cell phone. However, in order to do this, they have to distract Homura who has been spying on them. They used a bomb blast to distract and capture her, but all in vain. She finally realized that Senku is up to something and rushes back to Tsukasa.
Gen and Chrome somehow managed to catch her and install the cell phone. The funny thing is that they installed the phone at Senku’s grave LOL!! Taiju and Yuzuriha discovered the cell phone and made the first phone call to Senku.
Gen, Chrome, and Magma had somehow managed to deliver the cell phone and now it was time for them to escape. However, they realized that someone is following Taiku and Yuzuriha, and guess what? It was Ukyo with his impeccable hearing skills. By creating a smoke screen, Chrome, and Magma allowed Gen to escape. Meanwhile, Taiju managed to convince Nikki to listen to their cause.
She was HUGE Lilian fan and deceiving her would’ve been really difficult. Gen tried his very best to deceive her, but she saw through Senku’s tricks. She asked Senku if he can revive Lilian’s other songs, but it was impossible. Senku promised to keep this song safe. After hearing this, Nikki agreed to join them.
The between Ukyo and Chrome was still going on. Chrome finally decided to surrender and allow Magma to run away. Ukyo took him to Tsukasa so that they can ask him what he was doing there. They tried their very best, but Chromo didn’t give them any intel.
Meanwhile, Magma reported that Tsukasa has captured Chrome and they must rescue him. Senku decided that it was time for them to ambush Tsukasa Empire. However, for this purpose, they have built an AUTOMOBILE!!!
On the other hand, Tsukasa decided that Chrome is of no use and should be disposed of. They decided to throw him off a cliff. They did not throw him off the cliff, but the interesting thing here is that Ukyo lied to Tsukasa about Chrome’s whereabouts. This just shows Chrome’s resolve as a warrior of Science.
Senku and the others have finally managed to build an Automobile. Some final adjustments were made and after naming it the STEAM GORILLA, they were ready for War. The elders of the village stayed back to look after everything. Meanwhile, everyone else went to war. They had some difficulties on Mountain Terrain as the steam engine isn’t that powerful. After camping, Senku decided that they should convert their Steam Gorilla into a Tank using Carbon Fiber Senki made from paper.
On the other hand, Tsukasa had anticipated that Senku will build an Automobile after gunpowder. So, he asked his men to set up some traps. He knew that Senku wouldn’t abandon his friend Chrome and would fall for the traps. Chrome, meanwhile, was hoping to escape using Science.
This episode was all about Chrome’s escape. Tsukasa had asked Yo, a former policeman, to keep an eye on Chrome and subjugate Senku’s army. Chrome wanted to escape using fire. He collected herbs and bamboo sticks using washroom breaks. However, they were not enough and Yo also discovered him.
Now, someone delivered Chrome a BATTERY he can use to escape. It was probably Taiju. In order to escape using this battery, Chrome thought of making Acid using salt and the battery. After some hard work, he finally escaped. He also tricked Yo by telling him that he had Pneumonia and spit blood on his face. Kohaku discovered Chrome and the villagers were more than happy to see him.
Senku had finally managed to complete the Steam Gorilla Tank and it was ready for battle. They had also installed a Canon on top to further scare Tsukasa’s army. Nikki and Taiju, on the other hand, managed to convince some other villagers as well. However, Ukyo finally discovered them and immediately saw through Gen’s personification.
Ukyo decided to join Senju as he was bewildered by Senku’s effort to revive humanity. Yuzuriha had been working secretly to collect the broken statues and glue them. Ukyo further stated that he doesn’t want anyone else to die. Senku promises him that there won’t be any bloodshed. Meanwhile, Tsukasa was visiting the Graveyard to dig a grave in memory of Yo when he finally discovered the Cell Phone. Is this the turning point?
I have mixed opinions regarding this episode. Using their Gorilla Tank, Senku and the others began their ambush. Using the sound canon, they managed to disperse the guards and got close to the cave. Because of traps, the Tank had to stop. It was time for Magma to shine as he used his Shock Canon. With this, they had finally managed to secure the Cave. Senku wanted to use the depetrification fluid to make a bomb.
However, before he could do it, Hyoga and Tsukasa arrived on the scene. Ukyo was holding the jar and Hyoga broke it with his spear. Tsukasa declared that the villagers can live peacefully if Senku dies. But, he had more friends and a WHOLE ARMY with him this time. As Kahaku and the others were fighting Tsukasa, Senku rushed inside the cave to make something.
This episode basically marked the end of the WAR!!! Kohaku and the others somehow managed to keep Tsukasa and Hyoga away from the cave. Meanwhile, Senku was looking to make some nitroglycerin using the fluid. Chrome brought him some Sulfuric Acid he gathered from the cannon. With this, he managed to make explosive nitroglycerin. He dipped the tips of paper planes in this explosive and launched them toward a tree. The tree exploded.
Ukyo also dipped the tip of his arrow in this fluid and threatened Tsukasa. Senku knew that Tsukasa wanted to save his dying sister. He offered to use the de-petrification fluid on her which will cure her illness as well. Tsukasa was not sure about this offer but he still agreed and called TRUCE!! With this, they started looking for his sister.
Senku and the others finally managed to find Mirai and used the fluid to release her. Everything went smoothly and Tsukasa finally got reunited with his sister. It was WHOLESOME moment unless Hyoga betrayed Tsukasa and managed to stab him. Senku tries to help Tsukasa and both of them fall into the river.
Hyoga followed them as they washed away to a nearby Island. It was time for BATTLE!! Tsukasa was getting weaker with each passing second, however, he was somehow holding Hyoga back. Senku was kinda useless in battle so he used his brain and used the batteries he had prepared to electrocute Hyoga. With this, they managed to defeat Hyoga and the GREATEST TAG TEAM BATTLE ended!
Things have settled down and the Kingdom of Science has won this WAR!! After capturing Homura and Hyoga, Senku went on to treat Tsukasa’s wounds. However, without modern technology, it would be difficult to save him. The only option is to petrify him once again. For this, Senku has to find the source of that MYSTERIOUS LIGHT and freeze Tsukasa till he finds it.
He uses the power of the river to make a small refrigerator and freezes Tsukasa. Now, it is time for them to set sail and find the CULPRIT of the petrification event. With this, the season ended!!!
