Well, if it wasn’t clear before, I think it’s clear now. The crew of Edens Zero is facing their toughest battle yet. Personally, I think it’s about time that this happened! Rebecca’s held captive by Joe, Homura has Sylph chasing her down, and Weisz hangs by a thread. To top it all off, Jinn’s kicking Shiki’s butt! In addition, we don’t learn anything about why Joe wants Rebecca so badly.
I’ve read most of Hiro Mashima’s works as a mangaka before. As a result, I think I can recognize a lot of recurring tropes his creations. Firstly, he likes doing a lot of fan service. However, there’s another trope that he’s used in most of his stories. What is it, you may ask? It’s where the main female lead has some big reveal about her past that will have an effect on the story going forward. I’m only bringing this up because that’s exactly what happens to Rebecca in this new chapter of Edens Zero.
Rebecca and Happy have been captured by Sylph, are nowhere to be found, and Shiki has to face down an old enemy to defeat Sylph. Meanwhile, the reason for Drakken Joe’s obsession with Edens Zero begins to come to light.
In his second bout with the forces of evil, Arsenal takes on the villainous Laguna of the Element 4. Technology and elements clash!
