The Second Weirdest Training I’ve Ever Seen

So, I think that we can all agree that after the knockdown, dragged out fight on Foresta, Shiki and the others all need training. If they’re going up against Justice, Ziggy, Shura, and Emperor Nero, they need to get stronger. Thankfully, Xenolith is going to train Shiki up to defeat his Grandpa, and the others are going to get in on this. But I should warn you guys: Xenolith’s training methods are a little…out there.

Finally, A Smile of Hope from Kleene

After about four months of fighting, more fighting, and confronting emotional trauma, the Foresta Arc seems to be coming to an end. Ziggy’s mad plans for Foresta have been thwarted, the machines have come to their senses, and the whole planet can begin to heal. And mourn the ones they lost. In the long-term, this will lead to potential strife and discord in the Aoi Cosmos. However, in the short-term, the Edens Zero gained an important victory with the defeat of Muller. Now, for the first time, we get to see Kleene truly smile. And it is beautiful!!

Heart of Gravity

Happy New Year, everyone! I’ve been on break for the holidays, but now I’m back and ready to review more manga, more anime, and more pop culture goodness! And I’ve got some good news and bad news for everyone. The good news is that the Edens Zero anime is on track to be released in April, though I don’t know if I’ll be reviewing it. As for the bad news, the website where I read the manga is gone, so the links no longer work. But I found a new website, though, so I’m good! Now, let’s get the new year started off right with Shiki as he looks deep into the heart of gravity and sees his true potential lay before him.

Dude! Justice is A Total Jerk!

Before we start, I would like to say that I had no clue that there was a new chapter of Edens Zero last week. I thought the manga was on break for the Holidays. And I picked a bad time to drop the ball, too. Remember how my last review called Justice a Knight Templar? I’m considering upgrading him to Sakazuki levels of jerkass after reading the latest chapter.

Ah great! Edens Zero’s Got A Knight Templar now!

Have you ever heard of the ‘Knight Templar’ trope? It’s a person or group in a work of fiction that think they’re on the side of good. However, their methods are so hardcore that they’re just as bad as the enemies they fight; sometimes worse! To my dismay, that Justice guy in Edens Zero falls right into the Knight Templar category as he picks a fight with someone that he should be (at least) neutral to: Shiki.

Hermit Confronts Her Traumatic Past

I’ve been a fan of Hiro Mashima’s work as a mangaka for several years now. And when you follow a particular writer or artist for some time, you tend to notice recurring themes in their work. Firstly, Mashima seems to be a fan of giving the main heroes traumatic backstories. Secondly, those backstories end up coming back to haunt the heroes in the present day. In this case, we see Hermit come face-to-face with the hideous man who made her the emotional wreck she was when Shiki found her.

Mashima’s Girls are Badass

I know that a lot can be said about the girls in Hiro Mashima’s manga. That they’re overly-attractive. He uses them for a lot of fan service. However, when you look past the excess fan service, you’ll notice that most of the girls Mashima creates have one thing in common. When things hit the fan, they become incredibly badass!

Fan service Achieves Running Gag Status in Edens Zero

Congratulations, Hiro Mashima, for you have done it. You have managed to take the concept of fan service and made it into one of the biggest running gags in Edens Zero. If memory serves, you’ve managed to fit in at least one scene in each arc that sees a girl’s clothes get damaged. And Rebecca is usually the unfortunate recipient of the fan service.

Shiki vs. Mora! Edens Zero Has its Next Fight

So, in my review of last week’s chapter of Edens Zero, I ended it with the realization that Nero’s Commandos could end up targeting Happy and Pino. You know, since there are orders are to destroy every machine on Foresta, regardless of allegiance? This is one of those moments where I actually hate being right about something, because it’s going to lead to more trouble for the heroes. Like the title of this chapter states, the Battle of Foresta begins!

The War Against Machines Begins on Foresta

Well, it looks my predictions from the last few posts are turning out to be accurate. Shiki and his crew are about to get involved in a three way war on Foresta. The crew of Edens Zero vs. Emperor Nero’s team of purgers vs. the machines that Ziggy drove crazy. And judging by how this chapter ends, it’s going to be a tough fight.

Edens Zero Chapter 105 Dragonfall

Dragonfall!

Well, folks, it’s been a long time coming, but at last, the crew of Edens Zero is leaving Sakura Cosmos behind. Beyond them layers Outer Space, untold adventures, and most importantly, Mother. With Joe defeated and the Shining Stars assembled, the Edens Zero is ready for the last obstacle between them and Outer Space: Dragonfall! It’s going to take help from everyone if they want to get through the home of the dragons, but they’ve come too far now to lose. Dragonfall will be the start of their next journey!
