Edens Zero Chapter 189 Review/Recap
Sorry that this is a little later than normal, but I’ve been busy this week. Also, there’s the fact that there’s no One Piece this week, so I wanted something to fill in for Friday, and Edens Zero seemed to be my best bet. In the last chapter, Shiki dealt a finishing blow to Wizard of the four Dark Stars. Not only that, but he also revealed that he was only using one-tenth of his full power! Will the rest of the Crew of Edens be able to handle their opponent’s, though? Probably; Rebecca’s now a cat girl!
As Shiki keeps speculating about why Ziggy erased the Shining Stars memories, elsewhere, Elsie wakes up…to find herself stripped of her armor and chained to a pole, courtesy of Justice.
The reason being that Justice plans on having Elsie stand trial for her crimes before killing her, though he’s surprised that she couldn’t kill Ziggy. In addition, Justice reveals that the other members of Oracion Seis Interstelar are coming to Lendard to take down Ziggy.
Elsewhere, Rebecca continues her battle with Clown, now in her Overdrive form. In her cat girl form, she has a much better time fighting off Clown, managing to force him to the ground, leading her to follow suit. Aboard the Edens Zero, though, Labilia’s barely keeping it together amidst the battle while Couchpo tries to reassure her. That’s when the two find Rebecca’s latest video to her fans saying that she may not be coming back for a while, as she wants to protect the people she loves. As a result, Labilia’s so moved that she resolves to help however she can, much to Couchpo’s distress. Down below, though, the next stage of Rebecca’s fight begins: the cat girl in the ring of fire!
My, how far Rebecca has come since we first met her. Granted, she was already a badass when the series started, but getting Leaper, then Cat Leaper, then her cat girl overdrive form has made her even tougher. Now she’s able to fight alongside the best of them. However, the fact that Labilia’s leaving the safety of the ship leaves me concerned about her, well, safety. She could get killed!
Besides the fight between Rebecca and Clown, the only other notable thing about this chapter is what happened between Elsie and Justice. Firstly, did Justice have to strip her down, or is that just Mashima giving us fanservice again? I’d say it’s the latter. However, I’m more surprised at the fact that Justice chose to not kill her outright. Maybe he’s mellowing out…or actually believes what he’s saying.
This was an okay chapter, overall. I got no positives or negatives about it.
I Give “Rebecca vs. Clown” a 3/5
