....So they might have already found the petrification device then.
Now Kohaku just needs to tell the others somehow.
I think it's more likely that she has found the Soyuz which is the whole reason they came to the island in the first place.
So... When did Magma escape and evolve into this Oarashi guy?
Inagaki seems to love his Dumb Muscles, doesn't he… Or Boichi, I'm not sure who's in charge of character designs…

Okay it is hilarious how pedantic people are being over the first episode alone.
I guess this is what you get when you mix shonen & science, people expecting ultra-realism.
Seen the first episode of the anime. TMS doesn't disappoint. Wanna make a separate thread or leave it be?
Dunno if there are enough anime-onlies here for that…
But anyway, yeah, the first episode was well-done. My only complaint is that the epic adventurous music during the slow decay of the human world felt a bit jarring. Would have needed something a bit more somber. I wished the scene was slower too.
Skipping language feels like a big skip here I think. Why even go for Japanese immediately, use a simpler script.

Episode 2 of the anime:
Well, like in the manga, they ended up unpetrify a guy named Tsukasa for some protection and it worked as they seemingly friends with each other as Tsukasa himself helps the two heroes. However, things went downhill between the relationship of Tsukasa and Senkuu after the former had a displeasure to see some adults to be revived again and prefer pure hearted person to be revived and keeping the world in stone age state which goes against Senkuu's ideals.
Just started watching the anime, a pleasant surprise and i'm liking it so far, though Netsu is a bit too much of a smug know-it-all to be likable IMO. I also found shishio's backstory pretty contrived and a bit silly, but he's a cool foil so far.
also the ending theme is legit.
Also just started the anime, and I finished episode 2 just now. Interesting to have such a well-balanced conflict already.
^^Who is Netsu?
I think they meant Senku.
And yeah, he rubs me in a wrong way, considering his "hard science" background and how he treats science (and wanting to bring everything back, capitalism and all) without a single drop of skepticism. But as a Shonen protagonist, he also shows how things can be solved through brains rather than brawn while at the same time recognizing that survival and development require more skills than just academic knowledge. I like that.
Yeah senku. Japanese names tend to be hard to remember haha.
The only Japanese words that are troublesome to remember are the long ones.
Senku is simple & short so its easy to remember.
Netsu is actually Senku's twin brother whose genius was focused on revolutionizing the Stone World's fishing industry.
He invented nets.
Yay! Yuzuriha is revived. Though Tsukasa turns into the dark side which is understandable but yea...
One of my favorite things about Dr. Stone is how much respect it has for the skills and intelligence of people who lack Senku's book larnin'. Like how his reaction to seeing Chrome's collection is "what up, fellow scientist" and the villagers turn out to be really good at making coastal fishing boats with limited technology, while the modern-timers who dismiss them as stupid primitives are continually proven wrong.
....right up until his last moments, Senku's dad was a Bad Ass. Lets all lower our heads in remembrance.
Why the hell is Taiju above Yuzuriha in the poll. =[
Anyway, good thinking from Kohaku there. And all hail to Best Dad Ever (after Bondrewd).
Like father like son.
Huh. The metals weren't from the ISS? That's kinda surprising. Also the first generation not helping their parent was mean.
The first generation was probably busy figuring out the equation that would allow their community to survive without inbreeding.
Huh so that's how the other people in the opening show up.
This show keeps getting more interesting.

How well does it match the trope?
