Edens Zero Chapter 148
The more I read Edens Zero, the more I find myself being reminded of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure. Think about it. A lot of the Ether Gear used by people can be on the bizarre side. Laguna can turn people into water when they cry. Milani of the Ocean’s 6 has that mirror world gear. And now we have Nasseh with his Ether Gear, the Eye of Horus. Which can somehow hypnotize people into acting however he wants. The Eye of Horus may end up being the gang’s toughest challenge yet.
Also, I was wrong about my theory of the Eye of Horus not affecting machines, as you’ll soon see.
Following a title shift which sees Shiki arrive at the tunnels where the others are, the chapter shifts back to the massive space battle overhead. While both sides seem evenly matched, Shura’s ranks are bolstered by the ten thousand ships he had hiding on Shura 66!
This almost swings the fight in Shura’s favor, until Justice and his fleet of ships come in clutch to save the day. Justice alone manages to wipe out scores of enemy ships, turning the tide back in the Government and Oasis’ favor
Back in the tunnels, Pino, Happy, and Moscoy are at a loss as to how Nasseh’s controlling Rebecca and Weisz and not them. Moscoy gambles on it because his Eye of Horus doesn’t work on machines and goes on the attack. However, he gets his ass kicked, prompting Nasseh to reveal the truth. His Eye of Horus does work on machines, it just takes longer. So, Pino uses her EMP to cancel out his Ether Gear, snapping the others back to normal. However, Nasseh then turns his attention to the machines. As a result, the group’s back as square one. This time, though, it’s Rebecca and Weisz at Nasseh’s mercy.
Like I said, the Eye of Horus Ether Gear reminds me a lot of one of the Stands from JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure. It’s bizarre, and it’s going to require some finesse in order to beat. That’s normally not my cup of tea, but JoJo has taught me to appreciate these kinds of fights.
On their own, Rebecca and Weisz aren’t exactly the strongest members of Edens Zero, but they have a lot of potential to become that. But if they want to beat Nasseh, they’ll need to push themselves harder than ever. But I have faith that they can.
As far as chapters go, I’d say that this was pretty decent. Not the best chapter, but not the worst, either.
I Give “Eye of Horus” a 3/5
