I know that I’m in the minority when I say this, but I don’t mind spoilers. They can help you avoid a movie that won’t be worth your time, they can save you days on a video game that has a lame ending, etc. The point is, sometimes spoilers can be a good thing. In this case, Rebecca having knowledge of the future is helping Edens Zero turn the tables on Drakken!
When I had heard about the rumor that there was a spy amongst the Nine Red Scabbards, I didn’t believe it. I had seen how loyal these men were to each other, and after everything they went through, the thought of one of them being a traitor never crossed my mind. After this chapter, though, I can deny it no longer: there’s a traitor in the Nine Red Scabbards. And you won’t believe who it is.
How many of you have had some fantastic dream as a child only for it to be crushed by reality? I’m pretty sure that everyone has, but that doesn’t make our inability to attain it hurt any less. Why bring this up? Because we get a look at Gentle and La Brava’s pasts in this episode, and it makes us realize that they’re not evil. They’re just two people who’ve had a lousy life and are trying to make something of it.
Last week, we saw the absolute lowest in Edens Zero give way to an unexpected hope. As Rebecca despaired over Shiki’s death and the loss of her friends, her Ether Gear suddenly activated! Next thing we know, she’s back on the ship as Shiki’s about to leave for Belial Goer. In my last post, I had hypothesized that Rebecca’s Gear returned her to the past. Now it’s confirmed. The counterattack begins!
Ever since Midoriya began attending U.A., life seems to have gotten bleaker. First, the League of Villains, then Stain, All for One, Overhaul, and All Might’s retirement. However, despite how dark things are, U.A.’s determined to have their School Festival even as some seek to ruin it. Thus, both sides steel their resolve over a cup of rare tea in this episode.
I’m currently writing this on my phone as I prepare to go to bed, but this can’t wait until the morning. I just got done watching My Hero Academia: Heroes … Continue Reading Deku and Bakugo Team Up in Heroes Rising and it is Glorious
I heard somewhere that the hallmark of a good story is it’s ability to make you feel certain emotions. You laugh when the characters are having fun, you cry when they’re suffering, and you whoop in jubilation at their triumphs. As of today, let there be no doubt that Hiro Mashima’s made a great story with Edens Zero. And this chapter was a tearjerker.
My Hero Academia Season 4, Episode 19 Review/Recap A school for heroes is still a school, and in Japan, schools have festivals. With the U.A. Festival in a month, Class … Continue Reading Gentle Criminal Forms a Plan
One Piece Chapter 972 Review/Recap I rarely ever come across situations where I have no words to start off a blog post. However, after reading this chapter of One Piece, … Continue Reading RIP Oden Kozuki
There comes a point in many stories or arcs where the hero hits rock bottom. Where things are at their absolute bleakest. As of this chapter, I think I can say that Edens Zero has become the rock. Rock, meet bottom.
Normally I have some sort of introduction for these manga chapter reviews. Today, however, I have nothing. The reason why I have nothing is because I’m stumped at the name of the latest chapter of Edens Zero: “60-Day Commemorative Coin”. What kind of title is that, Mashima?
One Piece Chapter 970 Review/Recap The more we’ve seen of this flashback, the more I’ve been wondering something: how did Kaido beat Oden Kozuki? Oden was probably one of the … Continue Reading So that’s How Oden Lost!
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.
So, last episode of My Hero Academia saw the end to one of the biggest stories in the anime’s history. Overhaul loses the ability to use his Quirk, and Sir Nighteye died surrounded by All Might, Deku, LeMillion, and everyone else. What could one of the biggest shonen anime on the market do to top such an amazing arc? Apparently start a new one with a slice of life theme.
I’m now ready for this flashback to be over. However, it would seem that Oda still has some more backstory to explain regarding Oden and the Nine Red Scabbards. Thus, we get to see how Oden went from being the one everyone hoped would save Wano into Oden the Fool.
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.
