Edens Zero Chapter 243 Review/Recap
Remember how I said last week that Rebecca would be too smart for Muller’s trap? That she was only pretending to fall for it? It turns out I overestimated her abilities. She fell for it, hook, line, and sinker!! Now I feel like an idiot, Mashima! Thanks a lot!
Shiki, Shura, and Pino return to Shura’s residence on The Temple to bring the Muller down, much to the relief of Shura’s forces. However, when they arrive at what should be Muller’s lab, the Muller is long gone. That, and the Muller rigged the place to self-destruct!
Meanwhile, Rebecca and Happy fall right into Muller’s trap And get knocked the heck out. While they’re out cold in Muller’s secret lab; Muller decides he’s gonna take Rebecca’s Ether Gear for itself.
However, the process involves hacking her legs off with a chainsaw. The newly conscious Rebecca grows horrified that this might be the future she once saw, but right as Muller starts the process, “Happy” punches Muller’s lights out!
Except it’s not Happy, it’s Amira, the shapeshifting spy. Somehow, she swapped with Happy when no one was watching. That, and she ratted out Muller’s secret lab to Shiki and Shura. Now they’re mad.
Mashima, why are you like this? You just invalidated my arguments from last week about Rebecca not falling for Muller’s obvious trap. Then again, I might have overestimated Rebecca’s smarts. It’s not like she’s Jotaro Kujo, who could figure out something was up rather easily. Still, though, it made me feel dumb.
At least we got confirmation that the Muller’s plans wouldn’t have worked. He would’ve just blown himself up along with The Temple itself. However, I would hate to think that this incident could’ve left Rebecca an amputee. That was a horrifying prospect.
The bigger question, though is how did Amira swap with Happy in the first place. It’s not like she had much time to pull that off! Then again, this isn’t the first time she’s duped us.
Disappointment aside, I’m happy that Muller’s not going to get away with its crimes for much longer. Now Shiki and Shura are pissed, and they’re going to tear that quack apart. That should be fun to watch.
I Give “Where Did that Cat Come From?” a 3/5
