Chrome made me go "Taiju, who dat" so damn fast, love the guy
I must say really wasn't expecting a cooking ep, but it made sense plot wise, was a fun ep. Dr. Stone actually for the most part seems like a wholesome show.And here we start the long and complicated route to antibiotics. Before they can even make the first step, they find a roadblock of a lack of manpower needed to get the fires hot enough to even melt iron. Somehow on the road to antibiotics, it was necessary to create ramen. This series is all about the side routes needed to even make a bit of progress.
When your only strategy is anti-status quo that's what happens.
It depends on how you define isekai. If A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court doesn't count, then Dr. Stone probably wouldn't either.
I personally prefer to place things into genres based on the emotions and themes that the works evoke rather than the technicalities of things like the setting. For example, I wouldn't consider Star Wars to be Science Fiction. Yes, Star Wars takes place in space and features advanced technologies, but the context is that of a fantasy rather than thinking about the specifics of how these technologies would work or how humanity might progress to that stage. So, it's more Space Fantasy.
