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.
In the last chapter of Edens Zero, we got an exposition dump on how to find Mother: gather Relics that have her Ether, and it will lead the way. Which brings us to Shiki’s next stop, the planet Foresta. A planet that it seems Ziggy already made a mess of. This week, we see just what he did to the planet. And to be honest, it’s nothing like what I imagined. They’re in the doghouse now!
Well, it looks like the Red Cave Arc is over now. No big enemy to fight, just a major revelation about Mother and what kind of effect that she has on the universe. Also, remember how last chapter, I guessed that Andrew somehow got his hands on the treasure of Red Cave before he died? Called it!
I’m not sure if you guys know this about me, but I’m a big supporter of the idea of love conquering all. It doesn’t matter if it’s nationalities, gender differences, or (in the case of fiction) different species. Love is love, no matter what. So when Hiro Mashima wants to throw something like a robot being in love with a human, I won’t judge. Because as it turns out, that’s exactly what happened in the new chapter of Edens Zero.
The heroes of Edens Zero hit the beaches of Red Cave in their first stop in the Aoi Cosmos. But once they get there, they discover something amazing under the sea.
We’re back, people! After a national holiday that saw manga take a break last week, Edens Zero is back and ready for a new arc. When we last saw the Edens Zero, they had made it into the Aoi Cosmos. Which, in Mashima’s mind, somehow equates to oceans in the middle of space. As the heroes continue on their journey, though, they’ve attracted attention from the authorities. Enough attention for the Interstellar Army to call something called a “Prayer Council.” What is a Prayer Council? I don’t know, but it sounds important.
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!
Thanks to the intervention of Elsie Crimson, Ziggy and the Edens One have retreated. That’s small comfort to Shiki and the Shining Stars. They now have to accept the fact that Shiki’s adopted grandpa’s now his worst enemy. However, what could have brought about this change following his resurrection? In this chapter, Elsie Crimson gives us some clues and explains her past with Ziggy.
All right, I will be the first to admit that I may be wrong. Ziggy’s face-heel turn may be genuine and not just an act to see if Shiki’s ready to make the journey to see Mother. It doesn’t matter, though. What matters now is that Ziggy’s trying to destroy Edens Zero. This chapter pits Zero against One in a clash of the Cosmos!
Shiki’s grandpa Ziggy came back to life, only to attack Shiki and the others. Then he claims that he no longer sees organics as worth being friends with. And with the newly arrived Edens One, he plans to conquer the cosmos and have machines rule over all. And I don’t buy it for a second! I don’t think Ziggy is evil, but only time will tell.
Well, people, we knew that this chapter was going to be a very emotional one. Have some tissues ready, just in case, because Shiki is going to need them before we’re done.
As the manga reaches its 100th chapter, the heroes head off on their new quest. Meanwhile, we get our first look at the Edens One. It looks like a fish.
I cannot tell you how excited I am about this piece of news. I’ve been reading Edens Zero from the beginning, and I knew that it was perfect anime material. Given how successful the adaptation for Fairy Tail was, it would make less sense to not adapt it!
Let it be said here and now: Edens Zero should be standing among the great Shonen Manga out right now! This chapter sees the rise of the Demon King Shiki!
Well, of all the events that I expected to happen in the fight against Drakken Joe, I don’t think that this was one of them. Also, I’m sorry that I didn’t post this sooner, but I’ve been busy with a lot of stuff. So let’s do this thing!
We all remember what happened the first time that Shiki tried to stand up to Drakken Joe. We saw him get brutally murdered by the crime lord, traumatizing poor Rebecca and leaving her with PTSD. Even with the reset button Mashima gave the manga, the fact remains that Shiki’s outmatched against Joe. However, this is a Shonen manga. In Shonen manga, when the hero faces a villain stronger than them, they have to get stronger. In other words, unless we want a repeat of the execution site, Shiki has to get tougher.
