Edens Zero Chapter 81 Review/Recap
Well, if they weren’t before, then they certainly are now. The crew of Edens Zero has been backed into a corner.
So, Daichi proceeds to give into his torture fetish and uses his Ether Gear to make this tree painfully sprout from inside Rebecca. As a result, she cries in pain until Laguna shows up and turns her into water to stop her suffering. He then proceeds to chatsise Daichi for harming Rebecca. Meanwhile, Homura finds herself cornered by Sylph, who proceeds to capture her and the medicine for Weisz. At Sibir’s hideout, Fie arrives to capture Weisz and appears to shoot Sibir.
Meanwhile, Shiki’s battered and bruised from his fight with Jinn, yet he won’t give in. Right when he appears to have activated his own Overdrive, Drakken Joe himself shows up and ends their battle. Then, just to show how far above the two of them he is, he shows them a true Overdrive. By pushing one’s past its critical point, a person can change the ether in their body. As a result, Joe can convert his body into all sorts of elements! When Shiki demands to know where Rebecca is, Joe sadistically declares that she belongs to him.
Well…. they’re all screwed.
Like I said before, Edens Zero has been backed into a corner. After all this time of dominating their opponents, the heroes seemed to have been beaten by the power of Joe and his Element 4. Even Laguna, whom Weisz beat earlier, is back up and running! Worse still, the whole team’s separated and injured.
This chapter was meant to drive the point home: Edens Zero can’t win against Drakken Joe in their current state. Unless they can get stronger, they won’t have a chance; though they may not even have a chance to do that! Despite how dire things may be, though, I’m not counting the heroes out yet. We never see Fie kill Sibir; that gunshot could have been Weisz somehow pulling an ace up his sleeve. The team may be backed into a corner, but all it needs is one member to slip away to help them win.
This chapter was a major improvement over what we got last time, as it raised the stakes to new levels. I’m looking forward to seeing what happens next week.
I Give “Intercession” a 3.8/5
