Edens Zero Chapter 129 Review/Recap
After about four months of fighting, more fighting, and confronting emotional trauma, the Foresta Arc seems to be coming to an end. Ziggy’s mad plans for Foresta have been thwarted, the machines have come to their senses, and the whole planet can begin to heal. And mourn the ones they lost. In the long-term, this will lead to potential strife and discord in the Aoi Cosmos. However, in the short-term, the Edens Zero gained an important victory with the defeat of Muller. Now, for the first time, we get to see Kleene truly smile. And it is beautiful!!
With Muller’s defeat and the destruction of Foresta halted, the heroes regroup on their respective ships. Shiki and the others express their gratitude to Elsie for saving them from Justice, while she apologizes for getting them wrapped up in her problems. She warns them to steer clear of that group, and declares her intentions to continue hunting Ziggy. In the mess hall, Witch goes to speak with the little girl Rebecca and the others saved, Aruna. She knows that her friend Mimi died, and she’s left in absolute tears from this. Moved by this, and remembering how she felt when Valkyrie died, Witch tells the girl that she shouldn’t keep crying forever. Otherwise, those in Heaven won’t be happy for them.
In Sister’s ward, Jinn and Weisz have a talk about what the former and Kleene went through, and how they beat the snot out of Muller for them. More importantly, though, Weisz apologizes for being hard on them. Finally, Sister leaves the room and lets Jinn know that Kleene’s awake. And what he sees, I cannot put into words, so I’m just going to use the images.
Her smile is so beautiful!
I’m sorry, but I need a minute here. My feels like it’s about to burst from all the emotion!!
After seeing all the pain and suffering that Muller put Jinn and Kleene through, to know that they’re getting their happy ending! It’s moments like this that give me faith in humanity’s capacity for good! And when Kleene smiles, she looks so cute!
Joy aside, I loved Witch’s heart to heart with Aruna. She knows what it’s like to lose someone you love, and so she knows how to help the poor girl. Mimi wouldn’t want her friend to be sad because she was gone, so I hope Aruna takes that to heart. And I’m sure that Edens Zero would happily take her in and be her new family.
At any rate, though, something else big happened this chapter: Xeno awoke. Apparently, he uploaded his personality data onto the cloud to keep the virus out, but now that the threat’s gone, he’s back up and running!
I don’t know what Xeno’s role is in the story so far, but he seems dead set on making sure Ziggy’s stopped, and that Shiki can be the one to do so. It would be nice to have him join the crew as Shiki’s mentor, and I’m already thinking of headcanon voices for him. Regardless the Foresta Arc’s wrapping up, but the Aoi Cosmos Saga’s just getting started.
