Dr. Stone Wiki

Stone Wars Beginning is the twenty-fifth episode of the Dr. Stone anime, and the first episode of the second season.


Senku reveals the next innovative invention that will help the villagers survive the winter, which is Space Food. From there, after getting an epiphany from listening to Lillian Weinberg's song, Gen tells Senku of a devious plan of his that would help them win the upcoming war.

Plot Details[]

Gen tells a story about the modern world before the mysterious petrification event occurred to a group of village children. When Gen asks for Senku's thoughts on what he calls the "Stone World Foundation Story," he sarcastically praises it and orders Gen to get back to work. He, however, only works for a brief moment and then continues his story, leading up to the current events. Curious to know what the village will reinvent next, Senku answers that it's "space food," leaving the children confused and Gen perplexed as usual.

Freezedried ramen roadmap

The Ishigami Villagers are informed about Senku's next reinvention that would improve the village's ramen. Kokuyo gets the wrong impression that they'll be using it for space artillery purposes; however, Ruri insists that can't be right. Senku then explains the purpose and practicality of "space food" to the villagers. Due to Tsukasa not wanting to invade the village in the winter, Senku plans on taking advantage of Tsukasa's setback with science. The blueprint on how to create "space food" is created, and wasting no time, the villagers get to work. Kaseki is tasked with creating a vacuum, Kohaku cooks ramen with the help of Suika, and Kinro and Ginro build an igloo.

Eventually, all of the equipment and ingredients are prepared, and Senku explains how they'll be turning it into instant ramen through freeze-drying. Using the freeze-drying machine Chrome and Kaseki made, Senku prepares some ramen. At first, the villagers' response is mild, seeing the dry noodles, but after Senku adds warm water to the ramen, Chrome volunteers to try it, and he euphorically approves of it. Everyone else in the village then tries it, much to their delight. While watching them eat, Senku is reminded of how he made freeze-dried ramen with his father years before.

Ruri asks Senku if there is a way to win the upcoming war without violence, and Senku explains that he doesn't plan to wage an all-out war; he just wants to take back the Cave of Miracles. Kaseki interrupts their conversation, asking about Taiju and Yuzuriha's well-being, and Kinro also states his concern for them too. However, Senku isn't worried for them at all, as he's confident they're both all right. Just then, Chrome plays the recording of Lillian's song for the village kids, which gives Gen an epiphany.

"Let's hear it, mentalist"

That night, Gen visits Senku in the observatory, and proposes a plan to help out on the so-called "bloodless siege" of the Tsukasa Empire. Below them, Chrome eavesdrops on their conversation, and Gen elaborates on how they can topple the empire using an even more popular figure than their charismatic leader Tsukasa: Lillian Weinberg. Gen briefly mimics her voice to make his point about using the low-quality recording left by the ISS crew to trick the empire into thinking that other people have survived and recovered and that Americans will come rescue them. Impressed with the idea, Senku agrees, but then Chrome's head breaks through the floor, screaming that he didn't comprehend any of it.

While Senku and Chrome mend the floor, Gen explains to Chrome the new plan from the top. Although impressed by the plan, Chrome points out a fatal flaw: when the empire's citizens figure out the lie, they'll retaliate again. Senku and Gen respond confidently that they'll sort all that out later. When asked by Senku to inform the other villagers about their plan, Chrome claims he's an accomplice in their plan and will help them with it. Meanwhile, Tsukasa is shown brushing the snow off the statue of a young girl at the beach.

The next morning, Senku assigns a three-person task force: Chrome as engineer, Magma as transporter, and Gen as navigator, setting off for the Tsukasa Empire with the cell phone. Kohaku states that there's still a problem with Homura acting as a spy on the outskirts of the village. If she were to learn about their plan or, worse, about their cell phones, they'd be doomed. To solve their spy problem, Senku reveals that they'll place the newly invented "sonic bombs" around the periphery to distract Homura. With that, the Stone Wars has officially begun.
