From tools of stone to machinery and delicate products such as glass to giant projects such as the Perseus, we have seen the Kingdom of Science grow under the leadership of Senku.
Chapter 152 of Dr. Stone ended with a major reveal — the Kingdom of Science is going to make the next leap from the water to the sky by building a runway on the Perseus for their plane.
In chapter 150, the Kingdom of Science was attacked by a plane, but using his wits, Senku came up with a way to take it down. Instead of just hurrying out of there, Ryusui and Senku decided to salvage the plane so that they wouldn’t be at a disadvantage anymore.
After which they sent out a small party to spy on the enemies. Gen made his way to the enemy’s base alone and used his smooth-talking to trick them into thinking that Taiju is the science expert in their group.
Chapter 152 shows Kohaku and Chrome reporting to the Perseus. The wireless communication helped the enemy to make contact and to triangulate their location.
During the communication, Taiju talked to Dr. Xeno and pretended to be the leader of the Kingdom of Science. As it turns out, the enemy has a factory to produce gunpowder out of air and water, giving them an infinite supply of ammunition.
However, they do not have Senku’s revival fluid formula, and hence they are low in number. The call ended with Taiju refusing to give them any information.
After quite a long time, we will see Senku making another build step by step.
