Now there's nothing stopping the robot from becoming an important ally once the Science Kingdom goes to space.

I mean, I don't think there's any explicit confirmation that

The original attack on Earth in 20XX
The Medusa raining down in Matsukaze's time
And the broadcasts of Why-man

are all from the same source. The original attack and the later raining Medusae are probably linked, but the Why-man broadcast could be something else entirely.

The Why-man is actually someone tormented by the question of WHY someone would petrify humanity. Thus we now face Why not?-man.

Of course she will, she has to fight her dark doppleganger who lives on the moon and did the original attack, which is absolutely 100% for sure going to exist by the way and we will get at least 3 cover pages, 2 volume covers and several page spreads of them being in mirrored poses

One of them will be that thing where they sit across each other and join hands into the shape of a heart and look at the camera

For a more reliable de-petrifying machine why didn't senku think of the easier and more reliable: Make a shower with a dissolvable plug? Like just make a sugar plug or something that'll take a few minutes to dissolve away. Or some thin paper that'll get soaked and fall out letting the revival fluid shower down.

I know the plot and story answer since they wanted a timeskip to reset things for dramatic purposes. But it feels too variable for something Senku would be ok with risking their success on. Far easier to test that and make it than the big tower with the Rube-Goldberg machine. Even the "well they only had so much time to prepare" point fails for me since, again, they had time to come up with a complicated mechanism and build a big tower. Like even if they get the big enough sound to trigger the device, what if the wind is too strong and blows the bottle away as it falls.

Minor gripe, but meh, I feel like this one falls short of Senku's usual good ideas.

the tower was meant to activate the medusa, using it to break the revival fluid was a seat-of-their-pants solution to their immediate problem and not the intent of it

So this is just going to be an excuse to de-petrify Suika before everyone else and have her be the same age as Kohaku right? I'm sure people have already put forth that theory in this very thread.

A timed release mechanism needs to be reset and you need someone ready to be in position at any time.

If anything, a wristband with a wax motor that opens up once people turn into stone (because they won't keep it warm anymore) would be portable and wouldn't shower you in Nital unless necessary.

The two girls who had the bottles of fluid could've reasonably planned for it. Just have one person lay down, then have the second person slightly loosen the cork on the bottle and hold it by the cork over the person on the ground. The cork would eventually come loose and drop the bottle onto the second person.

They had 56 seconds to come up with a plan, and neither of them are the stable, rational type that would be able to think under such tremendous pressure.

even if this hasty plan works and suika comes out first, she'll have problems with producing more revival fluid. the original plan was to have her hang out out of range with a supply, not make it from scratch. she knows enough to be able to figure it out eventually, but it will still take some time.

Boo I'm gonna miss kid Suika. Wonder how much this manga has left in the tank, guess we're not gonna see a whole world tour before the end. Guess they could make any excuse really, depending on what Senku wants to build. Looking forward to the Congo expedition to mine cobalt.

the boar & dog are in ishigami, i think. You can see the uhhh what is it. Prison thing? in the background and everyone dresses differently on Soyuz's island. Both tribes were going into defensive positions.

Either way you're right they are both on the other side of the world
