Fantasy Vs. Science (FANTASY (ファンタシ) VS (バーサス) SCIENCE (サイエンス) Fantashī Bāsasu Saiensu) is the second chapter of the Dr. Stone manga.


The story continues with Taiju bringing home a collection of foraged food and Senku being impressed by his stamina because of the large amount. Senku realises that most are poisonous and calls him an idiot, but enough of them are edible for Senku to make a meal. Taiju is impressed with how good it tastes thanks to Senku adding salt from seawater.

Taiju leaves in the other direction to explore, and finds more edible foods such as grapes. During the search, he encounters a cave where he finds a bucket filled with liquid. He assumes that there are more survivors, but Senku explains that he has been collecting the nitric acid from the cave to use in his experiments.

After that it is shown they are trying to revive a petrified bird. Senku reveals that he has already done a lot of experiments and so far has not been successful. Senku tells him he wants to try making a stronger corrosive, nital, to see if that can depetrify the birds. He mentions he needs alcohol to do that, and Taiju tells him that he found grapes.

For three weeks, they set to work for the preparation of wine.

By winter, they still haven't found the cure. Taiju is shown with full beard, which he complains about and for that Senku proceeds to pluck his beard out using clam shells.

In the spring they had succeeded for the first time with a feather. The second time was a bird that broke free and flew into the sky. As a human test and as thanks for finding the grapes, Senku allows Taiju to choose who to revive next and he chooses Yuzuriha.

Chapter Notes[]

  • Senku does not have facial hair after being unpetrified for year, but Taiju does.
    • From real world perspective, this can be attributed to testoterone. The more of this hormone someone has, the faster facial hair grows.
    • Senku is quite weak physically, meaning his body does not produce enough to faciliate facial hair growth.
