I Know that Rebecca’s Playing A Rigged Card Game!
Edens Zero Chapter 152 Review/Recap
One of the first anime that I ever watched growing up was Yu-Gi-Oh!; and yes, it was the 4Kids dub. While time has made me realize just how much 4Kids censored, I still look back on it fondly. And considering how Edens Zero currently has Rebecca dealing with her own twisted card game, I’m glad that I watched Yu-Gi-Oh! It helped to teach me when people cheat at card games, and Rebecca’s being cheated!
As Homura’s stunned to have run into Creed, both quickly reveal their intentions to stop the All-Link. Given their mutual enemy, Creed suggests that they work together to stop the All-Link and take down Shura. However, Homura rightfully calls him out on what he did the last time they met, saying that she refuses to trust him. In response, Creed blurts this out:
Meanwhile, Happy, Pino, and Moscoy have snapped out of their hypnosis, but are now left all alone. However, when Moscoy tries watching some cartoons, they discover the livestream of Rebecca’s card game against Lyra, much to their horror.
In the arena, Lyra explains the rules, and thus the card game of lost card begins. Despite managing to get in some wins of her own, Rebecca continues to find herself on the losing end, until all that’s left is her leotard. Desperate, Rebecca uses Reverse to turn back time. However, to her utter horror, she discovers that she still managed to lose, despite knowing where each card would be. Lyra then boasts to her that she’s only lost this game once before to Emperor Nero.
I know that it may be too soon to draw such conclusions, but I carefully observed Lyra’s behavior during the card game. Based on how uncaring she was about losing her clothes, I could come to only one conclusion: Lyra’s cheating somehow.
At the end of the chapter, Lyra boasted how she’s played Lost Card a hundred times, and only lost to Emperor Nero. That’s some pretty good odds for a card game that’s supposed to lack strategy. My guess is that she’s either rigged it so that she’ll inevitably win, and Nero just managed to beat her anyway. However, I’m willing to bet that it has more to do with her Ether Gear letting her counteract Rebecca’s. If Rebecca wants to win, then she’s going have to find a way to outsmart Lyra.
As a whole, I wasn’t that big of a fan of this chapter. There wasn’t that much going on beyond Rebecca starting to lose a potentially rigged card game. Now we have to wait a whole week to learn how she gets out of this. Maybe more due to the Olympics.
I Give “Lost Card” a 2/5

Looking at the initial spoilers for the chapter; I heard people weren’t too into this chapter. And I can kind of agree with that. Though all things considered- ’twas fine.
OMG HE ACTUALLY SAID IT. I have NO CLUE how Homura is going to react to what she just heard. But I know for certain that any meeting they have in the future will be PRETTY DARN AWKWARD. Wonder if he’s gonna tell anyone about this interaction. Heck; how will the crew react when Homura blurts this out?
Oh yeah; Lyra’s cheating her @$$ off. Nero was able to beat her because his Empire dice told him which cards to choose. Looking at him; Nero didn’t strip her of her clothes because he’s a perv- he just wanted to humiliate her before taking her eye(nice touch, by the way).
Rebecca’s going to lose that leotard before this is over. Mashima has so far found a way for her to lose her clothes in every arc- he’s not gonna break that chain!
You realize that if she loses that leotard, she’s going to lose a limb
YEAH………..Something’ll happen to keep that from happening………maybe………
Wait, wouldn’t it be a better idea to get rid of the bomb on her neck
WOW- I kind of forgot how real the danger is for her right now! Huh………World 31 at the last minute- like those other times Noah implied it happened? She might be able to both expose Lyra’s cheating and get out of the game without too much of a problem.
