The chapter begins back in Ishigami Village, where Chrome explains to Suika what happened in the flashback. Ruri freaks out over the fact they are all Senku’s relatives - but Senku assures her that Byakuya wasn’t his biological father. Everyone heads down to the banquet, but as everyone else is drinking, Senku and Ruri make their way out of the village. Ruri tells Senku that wasn’t the whole story.
The scene flashes back once again to Byakuya looking at a grave, with the crew suggesting they get some antibiotics from the mainland. A frustrated Byakuya refuses to let Pneumonia take them out. It’s revealed the grave belongs to Shamil, and we see another dflashback of Shamil on his deathbed, telling Byakuya he did have fun in the end. He thanks him for the ramen (from when the world was petrified) and tells him it was nice enough to make him smile.
Byakuya vows to rebuild humanity to a point where they can eat ramen in space again. In another flashback, we see Byakuya drawing something in the sand with Lillian. We learn these are the 100 stories, designed to teach the future descendants the basics of survival - how to catch food, etc. He then adds a message to the final story, telling Senku that he trusts him to rebuild humanity, with the help of the villagers.
The scene goes back to Ruri and Senku at the village graveyard, where Senku decides to stay for a while. He thinks about how much has happened since the petrification and how nostalgic it all is. He sheds a single tear, but thanks Byakuya for “the science souvenirs“ (the villagers) and assures him he will help return humankind to where it was. Back at the village, Gen is talking about his cola with one of the villagers. He explains he can’t drink because he has a message to pass on. At that moment, Senku returns, and asks him whats happened with Tsukasa. Gen smiles humourlessly and tells him that Tsukasa and his army are coming for them. Senku smirks and gets ready for battle.
