Edens Zero Chapter 145 Review/Recap
Super Saiyan, Tailed Beast Mode, Dragon Force, Second Gear, Overdrive. It seems like a prerequisite for a lot of Shonen manga to give the heroes some sort of super-powered form. Edens Zero established one some time ago in the form of Overdrive, and Shiki’s already attained it. However, this chapter of Edens Zero sees another hero reach that status. Amidst her fight against the first of the Ocean’s 6, Homura awakens Overdrive, and her inner fox spirit!
It makes sense in context.
With the only way out of the mirror world being to beat Milani of the Ocean’s 6, Homura as no choice but to fight. Easier said than done, though. Milani’s Ether Gear allows her to move inside mirrors and attack from them. Homura can only do so much to fight off her attacks at first. In addition, if Homura attacks her own reflection, she’ll get hurt in the process.
However, Milani makes a big mistake in thinking that the pain will stop Homura. The Sword of Edens Zero‘s resolve proves far greater than any pain she experiences, letting her power through the attacks. As a result, she unlocks her own Overdrive and wastes Milani!
Elsewhere, Jinn arrives at the sight of that big explosion that Shiki was in the middle of. All he finds are the charred remains of the androids that kamikazed themselves, along with a mysterious figure lying unconscious.
Okay, first things first: I’m with Homura about Milani’s mirror powers. They’re already in a mirror world, and she can go into the mirrors in there? That’s a mind-screw if there ever was one. That said, I think that her power’s were very impressive. However, as Homura made clear, if one could predict her attacks and power through them, then it would be easy to beat her.
On top of that, Homura’s got her own Overdrive form now! And it looks amazing!!! While I have some questions as to why it’s got a fox motif to it, I don’t really care. What matters is that she’s grown more powerful. And if the rest of the Ocean’s 6 are like Milani, then the heroes will need their A-Game to take them down.
As for Shiki, I’m not too worried about his safety. I have no doubt that he survived the explosion. But it looks like it may be a while before he’s ready to fight again. Again, I can wait. As long as we get to see the other heroes show off their new powers, I doubt fans will complain.
