Edens Zero Chapter 134 Review/Recap
You guys ever seen the Terminator films before? In that franchise, an AI the military created becomes sentient and, due to its lack of morals, turns on humanity. The end result is Judgement Day, an event in which the evil AI takes out a good chunk of humanity. Why am I bringing this whole thing up here? Because that’s about happen in Edens Zero, but in reverse. This time, Judgement Day is coming for the machines!
After leaving Foresta behind, the Edens Zero resumes its quest of finding Mother Ether. Their latest adventure takes them to a planet of Mud Roll, where everything is literally made out of mud. Much to the annoyance of Rebecca, who spends the whole time getting filthy.
While Rebecca edits her latest B-Cube video (with help from Couchpo), Witch suggests that the crew leave the Aoi Cosmos for the time being. The reason being that there’s too many powerful Ether’s in the region. They can’t fight them all by themselves. However, events are about to force their hand.
In a special, cosmos wide press conference, Shura declares that several more machine uprsisings have taken place in the Aoi Cosmsos, but have been suppressed by Nero’s forces. As a result, he announces their intention to wipe out every machine in the Aoi Cosmos. Judgement day has come for the machines!
I think we all knew that this “Judgement Day” would be the end result of what happened on Foresta. Thanks to Ziggy’s actions, Shura has all the justification he needs to begin a robotic genocide. In fact, he’s already started it. Hermit confirms that all those other “uprisings” never happened. Shura just slaughtered all those machines.
While I have no doubt that Shura’s willing to make good on his promise, he’s got an ulterior motive. There’s only one way someone can destroy all the machines in the Aoi Cosmos, and it’s through something called the All-Link System. Shura could use it shut them all down. However, Ziggy could use it to take control of all the machines. Either way, the end result would be a judgement day for man or machine.
What Shura doesn’t realize is that Shiki’s not going to sit back and let this happen. That’s going to be a huge wrinkle in the brat’s plans. Either way, it looks like Shiki’s going to have to stick around to stop this judgment day from coming.
On a lighter note, I noticed how Rebecca wrote “Edens Zero” on her B-Cube. It was before I started reviewing the manga, but thousands of years in the future, that very B-Cube is found on a distant planet. In other words, the time-traveling escapades of the Edens Zero are far from over. I just thought that this was a nice bit of foreshadowing. Mashima’s improved his long-term storytelling.
I Give “Judgement Day” a 3.25/5
