Seeing Francoise's pronouns man... Okay, me being nonbinary and craving rep aside, this was an epic chapter.
Yes, Francois has been badass from the start! I think that it's great that we get to see her take action outside of the hospitality side though. It shows that she's already at the analytical level of situations as Senku. She might not have the same science knowledge to figure out the best answer when the climax of plots come around, but she is going to be a key character throughout the rest of the series based on this.>
WOW is that Stanley on the cover page? He's kinda uhh... hot in colour
Yup, and he's head over heels for Xeno based on the chibi doll on his dog tags. Great addition by Bochi!>
The real question is what happens with the revival fluid? If Team Stanley find it, they'll know that petrification is an option. At which point, they can quite easily kill Suika and Francois, steal the revival fluid and avoid being petrified altogether. I wonder if there's a failsafe in place for that situation?
Hmm...the first thing that comes to mind for me is that they will recognize it, but they would keep it so that they have the "upper hand". If Francois is carrying almost all of their revival fluid, it does immediately make it suspicious and Stan is now thinking of a counter to potential Medusa attacks. His only exposure is the worldwide attack, so he is probably preparing for Senku's plan...which means Senku has to do his usual counter of the enemies counterattack. And I fully expect this since Stan is suspicious of Francois upon hearing the message being sent out right before she exposed herself. I didn't catch the name of the radar guy, but it looks like he's going to be a major adult character too based on his subtle character development.
Damn...and per the usual of Dr. Stone, it's probably going to be pretty straight forward but something shocking and exciting!
