Edens Zero Chapter 50 Review/Recap
In the last chapter, the Edens Zero gained an unexpected new guest in the form of the mysterious Captain Conner. Thanks to his incredible flying skills, they got to Sun Jewel in less than a day. That’s all well and good, but considering its reputation as the space version of Las Vegas, I’m concerned. I’m almost sure that Sun Jewel has a dark side to it.
The Edens Zero arrives on Sun Jewel and splits into two groups. Weisz stays with the Three Shining Stars to watch Conner and work on a new weapon. The rest head down to the planet to look for Valkyrie, starting at the Casino Paradise. Rebecca even gets dressed up for the place (for the views).
No sooner do they arrive than a group of masked criminals try and rob the place. Shiki and Homura promptly kick their butts. Before they can decide what to do with them, though, the criminals are enveloped with a bright light and disintegrated.
According to the onlookers, that’s the work of the Scarlet Woman, the protector of Sun Jewel. They say she keeps their planet safe, but Rebecca thinks there’s something wrong with Sun Jewel.
She has no idea how right she is: the Scarlet Woman is an ally of Drakken Joe, whose come seeking out the Edens Zero. Elsewhere, in the Sun Jewel Slums, informants tell Valkyrie that Homura’s come looking for her.
From the moment I heard what Sun Jewel was like, I knew that it spelled trouble. Now my fears seem justified: the planet’s run by a woman who can obliterate people in the blink of an eye. There’s a huge divide between rich and poor; and the worst part is that Drakken Joe’s on Sun Jewel. If he finds out Shiki’s there, he’ll throw everything he has at the Edens Zero crew. This will be their toughest fight yet.
Then there’s Valkyrie. I don’t know what her motives are yet, but I think it won’t be as easy to get to her as Homura hopes. Given what we’ve seen of her thus far, she could be in the slums protecting the people there, which means there’s more going on than meets the eye. No matter how I look at it, I think the Sun Jewel Arc is going to be the biggest battle in Edens Zero yet. Let’s hope Mashima’s up for it.
I Give “The Scarlet Woman” a 3/5. Good start to a new arc.

Fairy Tail Cameos
I’d know Natsu and Lucy anywhere, and the robber’s mask looks like Icihiya from the same manga. Plus, we have Touka from the sequel, Fairy Tail: Hundred Year Quest
