New-World Pilots (
The Kingdom of Science are shocked by Senku's declaration and wonder how they can travel to the moon. Senku states they will follow the previous method of traveling, gathering allies and materials to do so. Some of them aren't surprised while others are fascinated by the idea of space travel.
On the island, the Kingdom of Science are freeing all those who were petrified, while Matsukaze is greatly amazed by witnessing the feat. Chrome then asks Matsukaze if there are other Petrification Devices but he states they were destroyed by his master and the last one was seized by a renegade. The Kingdom deduce this was the one Ibara used.
Senku states that they can revive the petrified as long as their statue is intact. Hearing this, Soyuz reflects on his father's state while Ginro is shocked they will free the island soldiers they were fighting against, but Ryusui isn't worried. Kirisame and the soldiers recognize Soyuz as their leader's son and bow to him. Suika is saddened by how Soyuz can't talk to his father despite him being just in the rext room. In silence, Senku seems touched by this remark, and Kohaku next to him notices it.
The next morning, early before dawn, Senku hangs alone near the big tree where the Soyuz capsule remains. He senses Kohaku aproaching, and after greetings, she notes that they are there for the same reason. Staring into the tree, they reflect on how thousands of years ago, Byakuya and the astronauts came down from space and started anew in that exact place. Senku notes that it's been so long, there is nothing of them left. She however corrects him, asserting that he is very wrong, as although every human including them is doomed to die and disintegrate, their hopes and aspirations last through the generations, getting worked on and perfected through the ages, just like Science as Senku taught her about it.
The next day, Soyuz tells Senku that he has chosen to stay on the island. Senku is not surprised, stating it's his choice while Soyuz reveals he memorized the revival formula, as Gen is still impressed by his memory. Soyuz is determined to revive all petrified people, as Amaryllis voices intentions to aid him in this. Soyuz also has Kirisame take his place on the Perseus to help the effort against Whyman and she agrees. Ginro then has Matsukaze join the crew too and the crew remark on his way of asking, the core request being the same but with vastly different intentions. Regardless the warrior agrees to join while Ryusui comments that he will be a valuable asset, and Gen notes Ryusui is just as bad.
The next day, the Perseus sets sail with people of the Petrification Kingdom seeing them off with tears in their eyes. Senku tells the crew not to cry, as it isn't goodbye forever, as it is shown a radio tower has been built on the hill of Treasure Island with a flag on it, signifying the Petrification Kingdom is part of the Kingdom of Science.
Senku says for the journey to the moon, they need a crew of astronauts. They already deduced Senku and Ryusui are likely candidates, and a warrior is left to choose. With the petrification weapon acquired, they set sail home to revive Tsukasa.
