Dr. Stone: New World Part 2 Was Great!

Key points for Dr. Stone: New World Part 2 Review:

  • Dr. Stone: New World Part 2 delivers an unforgettable Treasure Island arc, marked by unexpected twists and a consistently high level of excitement.
  • Ibara emerges as a standout villain, surpassing even Tsukasa, with his irredeemable actions and willingness to sacrifice his own people for personal gain.
  • The anime maintains Boichi’s unique art style, with top-notch animations, a mesmerizing sand painting in the ending theme, and solid opening and ending themes, contributing to an overall enjoyable experience.

I feel like we just had what might have been the best episode of the season. I know that there are 3 more episodes to go but I don’t think that they will be as thrilling as this one. The remaining 3 episodes will more than likely consist of lore drops since the bulk of the season is already over. But man, Dr. Stone: New World Part 2 has had one banger of an episode after another and I enjoyed every single moment of it.

Someone said that the last few episodes have pretty much been Ibara screaming in confusion and it couldn’t be truer. And I loved every moment of it.

I’ve said this before and I will say it again, this season truly rebuilt the series and I cannot wait to see where the series goes from here on. So welcome back to another review. And today, we are talking about Dr. Stone: New World Part 2. Let’s get started.

Plot

We pick up right where Part 1 left off, of course. The Treasure Island arc was already pretty good. But this part of the arc made it into something truly unforgettable. Every single episode had some unexpected twist. This part already starts off on a very high note with the whole Kohaku and Ginro incident. But somehow manages to keep climbing higher and higher with every passing episode.

It is paced exceptionally well. It gives you twists left, right, and center to always keep you on edge and the ending of every episode will leave you begging for more. Honestly, this is definitely the best story arc of the series by far. And I am very excited to see the lore drops in the upcoming episode as well. I know what is coming, but I am still very excited about it.

Characters

Special shout-out to Ibara here. I didn’t think they’d manage to create another villain as memorable as Tsukasa but I think in many aspects Ibara surpasses Tsukasa. See, unlike Tsukasa, Ibara is an irredeemable piece of $hit. He would do anything and everything in his power to maintain his position in the village. He even petrified and killed the real village chief sometime in the past and essentially used his statue to rule the village. The guy is more than willing to sacrifice his own people if it benefits him. This arc got so much better because of him.

Other than him, Senku got a really good character moment at the end of this week’s episode. This season did an amazing job of showcasing the trust Senku’s friends have in him. They believe that this guy will fix everything without a shadow of a doubt. Such moments added a lot more impact to the plot as well.

Animations and Soundtracks

The animations, of course, look as good as ever. Boichi’s art style is unique and the anime does a great job of transitioning it over from the manga. The ending theme animation is a beautiful blend of real sand painting and animations. It is mesmerizing to watch. And of course, yes, the opening and ending themes are indeed pretty good as always.

Summing Up

Here are my final scores for Dr. Stone: New World Part 2

  • Plot – 9/10
  • Characters – 9/10
  • Animations – 10/10
  • Soundtracks – 8/10
  • Enjoyment – 10/10
  • Overall – 9/10
