ruth to that saying. You should never underestimate the elderly, especially when they’re superpowered and capable of destroying entire planets! In this case, Shura learns a hard lesson: if he’s gonna do one over on his old man, make sure you’ve covered all your bases! This week, Shura’s master plan falls apart in front of him. As for Nero, he learns a lesson: don’t underestimate plot armor!
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!!!
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!!
I’ve been reviewing Edens Zero for two years now, and during that time, I’ve seen many villains that disgust me. That frog-man Illega, Homura’s mother, Drakken Joe. However, you know which villain I hate the most right now? Dr. Muller, the psychopathic robophile that traumatized poor Hermit. As the fight to free Foresta spirals even further out of control, we see the true depths of Dr. Muller’s depravity laid bare. That’s right; Muller’s even worse than he already was!
Our adventures on the planet Red Cave came to an end last week, but we learned a lot of new info. There are relics scattered across the universe that are filled with Mother’s Ether. Collect the Ether, and it can lead the way to Mother. It’s simple on paper, but nothing ever goes that simple in a story. Also, remember how I said that Shiki may end up angering Nero, the ruler of the Aoi Cosmos? I fear that we may be building up to just that.
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.
Edens Zero Chapter 99 Review/Recap It feels like it was only yesterday that Edens Zero began. Now here we are, on the cusp of a hundred chapters, and an anime … Continue Reading To a New Adventure! But Where’s Connor?
As the Shining Stars begin to push the Element 4 back, Noah reveals the secrets behind Rebecca’s powers and how they may be the key to defeating Drakken Joe.
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!
Normally I try to keep these review/recaps as shirt as possible. For this one though, I feel that would be a disservice to the subject. So, I’m going to talk about the deus ex machina Mashima pulled in the latest chapter of Edens Zero.
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?
Edens Zero Chapter 64 Review/Recap For the last several arcs of Edens Zero, the manga’s been hinting that Rebecca would get her own Ether Gear. This chapter sees that plot … Continue Reading Rebecca the Leaper
So, last chapter saw Shiki move against Homura’s evil mom in order to avenge the death of Valkyrie. Right when Shiki starts to back her into a corner, a new player emerges. Drakken Joe’s come to collect on a debt the Scarlet Woman owes. The chaotic fight continues, and it is getting crazier than I thought possible.
In the last chapter of Edens Zero, Rebecca was subjected to a humiliating prank by Labilia with the false promise of getting her to the slums to save Shiki and Homura. In the end, they did get the help of fellow B-Cuber, Nino. Meanwhile, Shiki fires the opening shots on a war against the Scarlet Woman’s rule when he defies her enforcer Garret to rescue Homura.
In the last chapter of Edens Zero, Shiki and the gang learned that the last of the four Shining Stars, Valkyrie, is on the planet Sun Jewel. Thus, they set sail for the last crew member they need before leaving the Sakura Cosmos. But they run into an unexpected detour in the form someone called Captain Conner.
