Edens Zero Chapter 128 Review/Recap
Few things are as satisfying in life as seeing some scumbag in a work of fiction get what’s coming to them. And I was in ecstasy when I saw how the last chapter of Edens Zero ended with Muller getting it’s just desserts. But the karma didn’t stop there. As we see in this week’s chapter, Hermit puts Muller in its place and reaffirms what’s important to her.
Thanks to Muller’s self-destruct sequence, Foresta is close to becoming space dust. In addition, a bunch of drones keep chasing after Shiki and the others. Fortunately, the heroes manage to take care of the machines in an incredibly badass action-sequence.
On board the station, Hermit wastes no time in getting to work on removing the virus. However, she’s then met by a pitiful sight: what remains of Muller, begging for Hermit to save it. Muller spouts nonsense about seeing the error of its ways and saying whatever it has to to survive. Thankfully, no one buys the monster’s BS, and after using Muller for a retinal scan, Hermit kicks her former tormentor to the curb.
Thanks to Muller, she now understands what’s truly important to her in life: her real friends. And with that, Ziggy’s virus is erased, the self-destruct sequence is stopped, and Foresta’s saved. All that’s left now is for humans and machines to rebuild and reconcile.
It’s over. The madness and hate that Ziggy unleashed on Foresta is finally over. But it came at a great cost. Thanks to Ziggy, so many humans and machines lost their lives. That’s not something that people will be willing to forgive or forget so easily. I’m not even sure if the machines will be able to forgive themselves for what they did!
I know that it’s going to sound totally cheesy, but the only solution to this kind of hatred is love and forgiveness. The humans will have to learn to forgive the machines for what they were forced to do. But I have hope that they will.
In the meantime, I’m glad to see Hermit reaffirm what’s important to her, and conquer her fear of Muller. And to top it off, Sister managed to save Kleene! She erased the memory of the torture that Muller inflicted on her brother. While I don’t approve of mind-wiping to heal emotional scars, I can’t think of any better solutions. It’s for the best, really.
It looks like the Foresta Arc’s finally wrapping up. Next week, we deal with the aftermath and the consequences of everybody’s actions. What’s important, though, is that Shiki has to stop his Grandpa before he causes an interstellar war between man and machine. Bring it on.
