yone. Nero, Shura, and Ijuna are dead; Creed’s dead; Witch gave her life to save Edens Zero. Everyone’s experienced some form of loss, and Ziggy is at the heart of it all. Having seen what his adoptive Grandpa’s now capable of, Shiki can’t let him go unchecked. With a new resolve, Shiki makes a declaration of war: he will bring Ziggy down.
The war for Aoi Cosmos is over, and all that’s left is to mourn the lives lost. This week, Edens Zero returns the dead to the sea of stars.
Two days have passed since the loss of Witch, and the crew of Edens is still trying to cope with her death.
With the Edens Zero trapped in an explosion capable of wiping out entire planets, Witch makes the ultimate sacrifice for her family.
Three times. That is how many times we have now seen a planet that Shiki and the heroes have been on come under threat of destruction. Firstly, we saw the Chronophage wipe away the filth of Guilst. Then, we saw the Muller almost destroy Foresta. Now, Nero 66 is about to be on the chopping block thanks to Ziggy. Worse, there’s nothing that Shiki can do to stop his grandfather. His only option now: run.
Last week on Edens Zero, the fight for fate of Aoi Cosmos began to reach its climax. On Planet Nero 66, Shura’s moments away from activating the All-Link System. Not only will it destroy all machines in the Aoi Cosmos, it will blow the capital world of the Temple to kingdom come! Meanwhile, at the Temple itself, Emperor Nero and Demon King Ziggy prepare to face off. The prize is nothing less than the future of Aoi Cosmos. But can a gambit by Emperor Nero allow him to defeat Ziggy?
Even as Shiki and Shura battle for control of the All-Link System, Ziggy confronts Emperor Nero for control of the entire Aoi Cosmos!
Time after time, Edens Zero has proven to be the darkest work of Hiro Mashima to date. We’ve seen the heroes be put through immense mental torture, suffer great loss, and in one timeline, we saw Shiki die! Well, that trend is about to, unfortunately, continue. This week, Mashima may have just sent several more named characters to their deaths.
So, last week, Hiro Mashima gave us one of the biggest examples of Stockholm Syndrome I’ve ever seen in my life. Laguna learned that his former comrade, Princess, got captured by Shura and horribly tortured. As a result of that, she developed severe Stockholm Syndrome and started serving the nutjob willingly. A nutjob who, by the way, just tortured Witch to near-death to piss off Shiki.
I have seen a lot of toxic relationships in the annals of fiction. Rick and Morty’s a twisted version of Doc and Marty. The Joker and Harley Quinn fills me with nothing but pity and revulsion. Name a Sith master and apprentice in Star Wars, and I’ll be 99.5% sure it’s bad. But this? What Mashima has created? This relationship is like the idea of Stockholm Syndrome and the feeling of pity had a baby!!!
