Edens Zero Chapter 182 Recap/Review
Edens Zero has taken a lot of inspiration from other famous manga and anime throughout its run. Besides being a spiritual successor to Mashima’s previous work, Fairy Tail, the premise of the story’s similar to that of One Piece. As of this week’s chapter, though, we can now add mecha anime like Gundam to the shout-outs made. The children of the Mother of Dragon’s faces the Sword of Edens!
The entire fleet trying to break through to Lendard is taken aback by the presence of Dragons. Even worse, they’re tougher than the ones found at Dragonfall. Fortunately, Holy’s fleet has specialized anti-Dragon Ether cannons that start blasting away at the Dragons. Then, much to Holy’s surprise, Hermit replicates it in, like, five seconds flat. However, it still takes too much time and resources to take them down.
Hermit, though, has a backup plan. Homura’s personal fighter is also a Knight Gear, a type of Gundam-esque mecha that she uses to do what she does best. The Sword of Edens, armed with an Anti-Dragon Ether sword, proceeds to make mincemeat out of the Dragons. Thanks to her, the fleet’s able to push down to Lendard to commence Operation: Planet Eater!
Well, I was certainly not expecting the heroes (and Holy) to find a way to get through the Dragons so quickly. The fact that they’re considered to be this pseudo-force of nature only to get taken out so easily really cheapens their overall value as a threat. Considering how big Dragons are in Fairy Tail, it’s more than a little sad.
Then, again, we got Homura in a Gundam, so I guess things even out.
In addition to the fights that will look way better in anime form, we also got a brief look into Ziggy’s mindset. He’s already said that raising Shiki was a mistake, but we still don’t know why. What we now know is that Ziggy’s convinced that Shiki’s a threat to the cosmos itself, yet we have no clue as to why. Hopefully, more will be revealed soon.
Next week, though, it looks like Operation: Planet Eater will commence, for better or worse. I’m looking forward to this.
