Edens Zero Chapter 143 Review/Recap
If you’ve followed Edens Zero for a long time, then you know that A big thing about Shiki is that he likes making friends. He wants to make as many friends as he can. But the end of the last chapter saw Shura offer to be his friend! And given how Shura’s a sucker for that line, we had every right to be worried. Fortunately, Shiki proves that he’s smart enough to know that a friendship with Shura is a bad one. Too bad Shura doesn’t take rejection well!
Picking up where we left off, Shura reaffirms his offer of being friends with Shiki; that, and to beat Ziggy. However, Shiki wants him to promise to call off his plans to destroy all the machines. In response, Shura tries to talk him over to his side, saying if they were friends, he’d understand his decision. Seeing Shura’s toxic views on friendship for what they are, Shiki refuses.
Shura does not take rejection well. At all. In response to Shiki’s decision, Shura lets loose an army of battle droids on him, forcing Shiki to fight them all by himself.
In the meantime, Shura decides to have some “fun” and see how Shiki likes it when he destroys his friends. As a result, he attacks the Edens Zero and the Shining Stars, who can’t even requip due to his gravity Ether!
Down below, the assault team continues to make its way to the All-Link. However, they’re not alone. Amidst a hallway of mirrors, Homura peers inside of one…and suddenly goes berserk! The culprit being none other than one of the Ocean 6.
Well, at least now we know that Shura’s offer to befriend Shiki wasn’t a bluff. Or at least he planned to be friends with him long enough to take down Ziggy. And, since Shura’s possibly a sociopath, he doesn’t take rejection well. As a result, he retaliates against Shiki’s refusal by threatening his ship and the Shining Stars. Between them, Laguna, and the Wind Siblings, they might be able to hold him off. For a while, at least. Shiki’s the only one who can take him down, though.
It may be a while before we return to the fight of Shiki and Shura, though. The assault team’s made contact with the first of the Ocean 6, and she has the power to make someone act evil. It’s like a Stand from JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure! I actually like it; very creative idea, Mashima. I just hope that this doesn’t end like it did the first time with the Belial Gore and we have to reset everything. That would be very emotionally draining!
I Give “You Didn’t Do Anything to Deserve This!” A 3.9/5. Loved Shiki’s Development
