    Tsukasa must kill several of animals a day to feed his growing army, and even if Gen was bad at handicrafts (and as a magician he is probably skilled at making his own prop stuff anyway), there's a master of crafts around. She doesn't care what he wants non-leaking bags for...

    Tsukasa already believes Senku is dead and buried. To not find him above ground is to re-assure he is dead; Gen knows this and the reason for the assignment. It makes sense to me to pair those phrases "I didn't find him. He's definitely dead (like we believed)."

    Absence of evidence isn't evidence of absence. The only one with that level of confirmation would be Tsukasa as he's the one who felt the blow to Senku's neck. Gen himself shouldn't really display any level of certainty about Senku's death.

    It's a stone age world, with wild animals all over the place. If the other two returned to Tsukasa's nation, and Gen doesn't find Senku alive anywhere, his body was carried off and eaten. The end.

    It might have been better if Senku tore off a chunk of his coat with an animal skull, dirtied it up, and handed it over. But that isn't the deal Senku made with Gen. Any kind of trickery is more likely to make Tsukasa suspicious.

    Weak episode.
    Antibiotics will probably take all remaining episodes to be done.
    Tsukasa's kingdom had some Hokuto no Ken vibes mixed with HxH.

    All in all not much to write about that ep, maybe focusing too much on Gen is a bit irritating to me.

    All the things I really like to do are either illegal, immoral, or fattening. And then: Golf.

    Yeah, I guess they could just be ugly, but a lot of the dudes in Tsukasa's "no adults" kingdom look like some adult-ass adults.

    It's more about saying "I don't see evidence of Senku being alive" as opposed to "Senku is dead". Unless you see a body (and you'd expect Taiju to have buried him since he's a bro), you can't really prove the latter.

    Don't forget that Senku survived in this Stone Age World by himself for the first year or something.

    I'm not.

    Taiju and Yuzuriha aren't trustworthy. That's the whole point of sending Gen out to see if those two were lying about Senku's death.

    Seriously, what is so difficult for you to grasp here?

    No.

    If you send me out to see if some dude is alive and I couldn't certify him, I come back and tell you "I've found no trace of him[1]", not "He's dead", let alone "He's dead, without a doubt." That's why Sunrisen from the dead is a thing.

    [1] He did in fact say "Senku-chan was gone without a trace", he just didn't leave it at that.

    Man, I am just enjoying the hell out of this series.

    That whole Mecha Senku segment just felt like "Let me show you my Warcraft build tree."

    It was a little weird seeing Chrome shocked by thingo's muscles. You know, having personally tied him up and everything.

    The food stall is so important as far as hiring labour goes xD

    It always tickled me that Kaseki's motivator is "I can't stand to watch you do this so bad! Gimme that!"

    It also helps that he really is an artist and the idea of working in a new fascinating medium is genuinely appealing to him.
