Here’s Taiju Ooki where’s he’s about to confess his feelings towards his crush Yuzuriha Ogawa. But instead of telling it right away, Taiju told Yuzuriha to wait.
Although she’s okay for Taiju Ooki to wait for a bit longer, I think he should tell her right away because Yuzuriha Ogawa might fall in love to someone else.
Now then, it’s time for Senku to teach them how to make gunpowder. All they need to do is to mix sulfur, charcoal, and potassium nitrate in which it was created by mixing crushed seashells with nitric acid until it’s reduced to a fine powder.
Getting sulfur and charcoal is easy, but getting potassium nitrate is a pain in the ass for Senku. But hey, at least he got what he needed to make gunpowder.
Now all it needs to mix it all together as Taiju Ooki will do the pound- Wait, I think Taiju shouldn’t pound the mixture because he can’t control his strength.
On second thought, seems that Taiju can control his strength after all as he pounds the mixture. C’mon, there’s no way gunpowder would ignite unless there’s a spark.
Actually, I’ll take it back as Taiju Ooki can’t control his strength after all. As you can see, he pound the gunpowder mixture so much that it creates a spark, which means that it’s gonna explode in front of them.
But yes, seems that Taiju’s immerse strength has put him and his friends in harm’s way as the gunpowder mixture explodes, although they’re fine since it’s not powerful enough to knock them dead.
Of course, that gunpowder explosion produced black smoke which Tsukasa Shishio will find their location.
And speaking of Tsukasa Shishio, he’s running towards Hakone at break-neck speed as Tsukasa must stop Senku from creating gunpowder that’ll kill him.
Back at Hakone, Senku and Taiju Ooki tries to put out the black smoke ’cause they don’t want to get spotted by Tsukasa Shishio.
On the other hand, seems that Senku and the rest saw white smoke over the distance. Oh yeah, and it’s not some random smoke which signal a forest fire, meaning that there’s a survivor producing it.
And really, there’s this person who survived being petrified for more than 3 millennia. I can’t wait to see this survivor in the future.
Right now, Tsukasa Shishio has arrived and took Yuzuriha Ogawa as a hostage. Damn, this situation is getting worse for Senku and his friends.
Anyways, Tsukasa demanded Senku in regards to the petrification liquid formula, as well as halting progression of bringing back modern civilization in exchange for Yuzuriha Ogawa’s life. Well, that was a tough choice for Senku to make.
Of course, Senku refused to give into Tsukasa’s demands as he’ll continue to bring back modern civilization as quickly as possible. And besides, he doesn’t care towards Yuzuriha anyway since Senku will find another female to repopulate the human race.
Actually, Senku is just bluffing as he really wants to save Yuzuriha while keeping the petrification liquid formula to himself.
Unfortunately for Senku, Tsukasa Shishio is very serious that he won’t hesitate on killing Yuzuriha Ogawa. Sure that he just cut her hair, but Tsukasa won’t miss this time.
On the other hand, it seems that Yuzuriha tells Senku not to give the secret formula to Tsukasa as she decided to end her life, which Taiju Ooki will be very sad if that happened.
At this point, Senku is really stuck between saving Yuzuriha and stopping Tsukasa’s ambitions.
In the end, Senku told Tsukasa Shishio about the petrification liquid formula, but he won’t back down on bringing back modern civilization because Senku loves science that’ll he treasure it for the rest of his life.
Of course, Senku’s declaration doesn’t sit well for Tsukasa Shishio as he decides to end Senku’s life instead. Yeah, this is gonna suck!
Meanwhile, here’s Taiju Ooki as he’s gathering sticks of wood to make charcoal when he heard Yuzuriha Ogawa’s voice. And all I could say is that Taiju’s friends are in trouble!
But will Taiju managed to stop Tsukasa from killing his best friend? We’ll find that out next time as Taiju Ooki goes back to the volcano!
On second thought, I think someone other that Taiju will come to rescue Senku. After all, there’s another survivor who might appear on the next episode.
