Edens Zero Chapter 156 Review/Recap
If there was any doubt that Shura was a piece of garbage, then let it be silenced now. Shura is like Ramsay Bolton from Game of Throne if he had superpowers, which makes him ten times as dangerous. Worse, he’s got no loyalty whatsoever to his adoptive father, and this chapter proves it!
As Xiao Mei recaps what’s happened in the fight for the All-Link, the scene then shifts to another planet: Nero 1, home to Poseidon Nero’s Temple. While his comrades are attacking Nero 66, Jaguar of the Oracion Seis Interstellar’s launched an all-out invasion of Nero’s capital to bring him down for good. And the warrior demonstrates that his name isn’t just for show: his Ether Gear lets him transform into a humanoid Jaguar. Then, he wastes the only member of the Ocean’s 6 that’s on-planet, Fabiano. As a result, Jaguar’s able to directly confront Poseidon Nero, but before the two can fight, they’re met by an unexpected guest: Ziggy himself!
Back on Nero 66, Shura gets word that his Dad’s throne world is under attack. Instead of getting scared or annoyed, though, he bursts out laughing. This was his goal the entire time: to get Nero and Ziggy to fight each other. With his Dad out of the way, Shura can seize control and rule over Aoi Cosmos all to himself.
What the heck, Shura?
Like I said, Shura is an absolute bastard. Not only is he willing to destroy every Android in the Aoi Cosmos to draw out Ziggy, he’s willing to sacrifice his adoptive father. And for what? So he can rule over the ruins of his Dad’s empire? What an utter dirtbag!
Honestly, this chapter did little to surprise me, as we already knew that Shura was gunning for his Dad’s throne. However, what did surprise me was the fact that he planned to pit his Dad against Ziggy. On paper, it’s a good strategy to weaken them both. In practice, it won’t work. Nero and Ziggy are too strong to lose against the likes of Shura.
If Shiki wants to save the Aoi Cosmos from this wannabe Caligula, he’s gotta take him down. HARD. I’m looking forward to seeing how he does that.
In other news, I thought that Jaguar’s beast form was pretty cool, even if it borrows from the Zoan-Type Devil Fruit User’s from One Piece. From my perspective, at least.
I Give “The Beast Lord” a 2.9/5
