I wonder if any of the actual city of Barcelona remains? I think it could be REALLY cool to see an arc set in the remains of the city, because the architecture there is beautiful.
No...unfortunately not. Stuff like steel (which is going to last dramatically longer than rock/concrete/etc.) is already completely gone. We had the visuals of Japan slowly breaking down initially, so this happened throughout the entire world. >
That would be really nice, but I’m sure at some point a challenge will arise. It won’t be anything like what we saw with Xeno and Stan (as far as we know the only revived humans are the ones Team Senku have depetrified in this chapter, so no personal conflict there), but I’m sure theres a potential twist coming…
Yup, so far every single arc has had a different overall "plan" behind it. So for me personally, I think things get the most exciting if this "Spain arc" is actually just "smooth sailing for the essentials of space travel". We create a 50-50 split of options between why-man and "maintaining peace in the world". It has been directly stated multiple times that the main problem is maintaining their utopia since even greedy adults will be revived.
Will the two major arcs occur at the same time?! That is the most exciting outcome possible in my mind. It makes the series astronomically shorter than I thought even just last week...but if there is a greater climax, I'd 100% take it any day.
