Welcome! Are you ready for an Anime Rant? First is a few brief thoughts on Dr. Stone episode 7. After that, you’ll find a surprise!
—Dr. Stone Episode 7 Review–
I love where things are going in Dr. Stone. It’s getting better and better. I expected the episode to be split between scenes of Yuzuriha with Taiju and Kohaku with Senku traveling through the woods. I thought it wouldn’t be very exciting since last episode was so good. I was dead wrong. First of all, nothing yet has been shown about Taiju and Yuzu. Secondly, Senku and Kohaku arrived pretty quickly at the village where the latter comes from. Lastly, this episode was damned exciting! I was thrilled to see all the new developments and meet the new character, Chrome.
The character of Senku is great. He can be arrogant and off-putting, but he handled things pretty well and wasn’t too obnoxious when it came to interacting with people from Kohaku’s village. Senku even stops himself at one point in the middle of calling them primitive, realizing that it’s actually extremely impressive what these people — and especially Chrome — have been able to do on their own. I love Senku’s occasional insights and thoughts on the positive qualities of humanity and/or hope for the human race’s continuation.
The interactions of Senku and Chrome are highly enjoyable. I loved their sorcery contest and I love Chrome’s curious, scientific nature. Also, I think Kohaku is a very interesting and admirable character. I hope that her sister can be healed. I’m not excited about her sister being “The Priestess” though. Religion might hold the village back from aligning with Senku. I foresee problems with that in the near future. Then again, maybe the village will accept him if he can indeed cure her.
This episode gave us a lot of new stuff to work with. There was character development and new character introduction. There are new possibilities for Senku with the home and materials of Chrome at his disposal, and potentially a village of forty strong supporters. There’s the mysteries, too, like where did these people come from? How are they going to make antibiotics? I eagerly anticipate the next episode.
–An Early Look at The MBTI of Dr. Stone Characters–
Surprise! Or maybe not so surprising since it’s obvious that I’m fanatic about the MBTI model of personality types. This is an early look, and my opinions might very well change as the show goes on, with regards to which characters are which types. Remember, it’s impossible to confirm the personality typing of a fictional character, so everyone is free to interpret the characters how they wish.
