Crunchyroll anime series Dr. Stone Season 3 Episode 9 Recap


A fun episode that breaks some of the tension while still progressing the story.

We recap the Crunchyroll anime series Dr. Stone Season 3 Episode 9, “Beautiful Science,” which contains spoilers. 

Just when it seemed like Senku (Yusuke Kobayashi) and his friends were out of options, both Ginro (Ayumu Murase) and Suika (Karin Takahashi) appeared, giving the viewers hope.

With both of them still on the ship, there’s a much better chance of Senku getting the lab needed to help Kohaku (Manami Numakura) infiltrate the treasure island kingdom.

However, just because they’re not petrified doesn’t mean the task will be easy. With both the Master’s minister and one of his best warriors on the ship, there’s still a chance Ginro and Suika could get caught and end up in an even worse situation.

Dr. Stone Season 3 Episode 9 Recap

The episode opens with Suika locating the mobile lab on the ship and putting a camouflage covering on top of it. While Senku believes in her abilities to help them, the team is a bit divided on Ginro’s. Still, Kohaku has faith that he will be able to come through for them as well.

Do Suika and Ginro get the lab off of the ship?

Suika and Ginro successfully smuggle the lab off the ship after Suika manages to create a distraction. From there, they are able to get in on land to Senku and his friends.

To makeover Kohaku, Senku uses the lab and various island fruits to create shampoo, conditioner, foundation, lipstick, and perfume. They hope with the help of these products; the Master will choose her to join him in the inner palace.

In order to increase their chance of infiltration, Senku and the group disguise Ginro as a female as well in hopes he will pass the Master’s selection.

Who passes the Master’s selection? 

In the end, Kohaku, Amaryllis, and Ginro all pass the Master’s selection and are invited to the inner palace. The episode ends with them being led toward the palace while Senku plans to enact the next part of their plan.

Even when Dr. Stone is at it’s most serious, it always manages to find a way to shift the tone with a nice lighthearted scene or joke. This episode definitely felt like a break from the chaos and tension but in a good way.

At first, I suspected it to be a filler episode, but that wasn’t the case at all. Instead, it found a good balance between comedy and progressing the plot without sacrificing one for the other.

While this episode was a bit more relaxed, it definitely felt like it was building up to something more serious. I have a feeling these comedic moments were here to prepare us for what is to come and that things could get just as intense as they were in season one when Senku was up against the Tsukasa Empire.

If that’s the case, the second half of the season is shaping up to be as intense as it will be entertaining.
