Friends Have Each Other's Backs (
With the dangerous task ahead, Senku tells Chrome that he's going to inherit all 2 million years of humanity's scientific progress. Chrome says that's bad luck, but Senku says he doesn't intend to die, he's only trying to be practical. Chrome says that he's not going with that plan, and says that if Senku dies, so will science.
Kohaku overhears this conversation and remembers a situation years ago when she'd argued the same thing against her father. She refused to learn the 100 Tales if that meant Ruri could die. Instead, she vowed to keep carrying the hot water to her daily to keep her alive.
Senku continues arguing that their odds are best if only one of them goes, but Chrome insists having a scientist tag team will increase their odds even more. Senku finally relents after Chrome brings up the fact that Taiju and Yuzuriha are also risking their lives for him. He comments they'll have to make another gas mask thanks to him now.
Kohaku wistfully mentions that everyone would be happy if Ruri could marry someone like Chrome, but Chrome could never win the Grand Bout to even have the option to. Instead, Kohaku offers herself in marriage but Chrome calls her a gorilla.
With some extra crafting, another gas mask is made and the team is ready to confront Sulfurina once more.
