Edens Zero Chapter 192 Review/Recap
For the record, I think we all knew that when the last chapter ended with Weisz seeing his dead mom, it was an obvious trap. Like, unbelievably obvious. Was Killer hoping that Weisz would let his guard down? Because it didn’t really work. At least, not at first.
Even though he knows it’s fake, Weisz gets shaken up by the sight of the Mom he thought to be dead. However, he keeps his head on straight enough that he can call Killer out on it, and how he says that Human emotions make him weak. The two continue their battle, but with Killer in control of the dimension, he robs Weisz of any chance to use his Ether Gear to mod his surroundings. Fortunately, Weisz switches to his Arsenal armor to give him the upper hand once more.
The two continue to battle and remain evenly matched. When Killer gets rid of the Arsenal armor, Weisz retaliates by activating his Overdrive, putting Killer on the backfoot. However, Killer has one last card to play: a healing pod, with what looks like Weisz’s mother inside, and he plans on smashing it to spit Weisz!
Okay, what are you doing, Mashima? You expect us to believe that Weisz’s mom was brought back to life by scientists who decided to study her after she died in the hopes of understanding what killed her? And that somehow, Killer got a hold of her ? I’m sorry, but even I find that hard to believe. That would mean that they had to travel to Norma, which is trapped in the past, and then escape. It’s possible, but even I think that’s unlikely.
The problem, though, is that Weisz can’t afford to take that risk. Killer knows how to emotionally manipulate him to win, and that’s what makes him so dangerous. Beyond that, though, this wasn’t a very interesting chapter for me. If it turns out that Weisz’s mother is somehow alive, then I’ll be impressed. Until then, not so much. I did like Weisz’s Overdrive, though.
I Give “Weisz vs. Killer” a 3/5
