Edens Zero Chapter 153 – Rebecca VS Lyra: Cognitive Perspective

Edens Zero chapter 153 - Rebecca reveals the five that Lyra couldn't have drawn

Despite the warped narrative dictating the Lost Card Game, Rebecca was successfully able to negate the influence Lyra had over the game by psychologically cornering her and shining light on her deceptive actions. In the face of Lyra’s intentions, Rebecca did manage to bring the game back to a battle of psychology to outwit and outplay Lyra. Accustomed to reactions of despair and hollow victories, Lyra intentionally conditioned herself to wholly rely on her Ether Gear to determine the outcome within the Lost Card Game. Unbeknownst to Lyra though, use of Ether Gear powers can go both ways. Rebecca’s Cat Leaper power allowed her the opportunity to test a theory and acquire evidence to corner Lyra as a cheater. After Lyra’s first lost to Nero, she should have known better than hubristically believing she was immune to losing. Alas, the cat is out of the bag so to speak and Rebecca has psychologically won the battle in the Lost Card Game.

Edens Zero Chapter 152 – Rebecca VS Lyra: Card Manipulation

Edens Zero chapter 152 - Rebecca chooses her card

What should be chance and a test of psychology instead colours itself in an unnerving air of fabrication. Rebecca’s attempts to out-play Lyra within the Lost Card Game falls deftly within the scope of Lyra’s narration. The notion of ‘game’ within the title is a laughable misrepresentation of the actual events ongoing. There is little fair play being had. The only losses Lyra suffers are those chosen by her to construct a ‘game’ that invokes a hollow reverberation of entertainment. Beyond the misleading setting of the game, Ether Powers are deceptively used behind the scenes to design the outcome sought. The particular game and rule-set were chosen by Lyra for reason rather than a physical bout. Outside of combat, Lyra’s abilities more than likely benefits from such structure. With Rebecca introduced to such a possibility, how will she exercise her observations into her deductions? The revelation that Lyra lost once conveys that the Lost Card isn’t unbeatable. If anyone can fight a route to victory in such a game, it is Rebecca (and Happy).

One Piece chapter 1019 -Yamato's Hybrid Devil Fruit form

[Theory] One Piece – Yamato’s Devil Fruit (Part 2)

Edit: Chapter 1020 reveals that Yamato has the Inu Inu no Mi, Model: Okuchi no Makami.

I love how Yamato has been causing problems for Kaido since Oden’s execution. Even with being shackled, imprisoned to one Island for decades, and beaten each time after a challenge, Yamato never once conceded to Kaido’s plans for him. Rather Yamato’s actions were a constant reminder to Kaido that he didn’t defeat Oden and that he isn’t as sovereign as he would like himself to believe. Kaido confirms that Yamato had consumed a Devil Fruit that he viewed as valuable, one he didn’t intend for Yamato to eat. The visual appearance of Yamato’s current form may give us some ideas as to what the Devil Fruit is.

One Piece Chapter 1019 – Franky VS Sasaki: Unforeseen

One Piece chapter 1019 - Franky uses Radical Beam on Sasaki

Franky has certainly primed himself into a formidable force with the advancements of his research and application of his passion. It was by no means a pretty win for Franky but a win regardless. General Franky was damaged. Franken Blade was broken. Frank’s cola has been depleted. But Sasaki now lies unconscious on the floor bested by Franky. Another of the Beast Pirates Tobi Roppo has been defeated and only one more remains (not including Drake and discounting Page One returning to the fight).

Edens Zero Chapter 151 – Rebecca VS Lyra: Lost Card Game

Edens Zero chapter 151 - Lyra reveals the ominous nature of the Lost Card Game

A game setting that seemingly extends into horror with the apparent structure set-up by Lyra. Beyond the obvious appeal of the initial rules, would the Aoi Cosmos audience really consider the loss of limbs an act of entertainment? Surely not. Which implies that the meaning Rebecca interpreted Lyra’s words as may not have been their exact meaning. The word that Lyra used that triggered Rebecca’s traumatic experience from her consciousness travel moment before was the word ‘lost’. Did Lyra intend to convey the destruction of her body or something else? When Lyra mentions ‘lost’, could she be expressing something less permanent? What Rebecca is envisioning isn’t exactly what Lyra has in mind.

Edens Zero Chapter 150 – Weisz VS Nasseh: Architect

Edens Zero chapter 150 - Weisz defeats Nasseh

It’s easy to forget that Weisz existed in a different time from the current one and that he is in fact an incredible genius. Weisz’s casual and crude demeanor belies his actual aptitude. I don’t blame Nasseh for being fooled by Weisz and not expecting such capabilities. Nasseh genuinely underestimated Weisz and got burned for it.

One Piece Chapter 1018 – Jinbe VS Who’s Who: The Heart Of A Fish-Man

One Piece chapter 1018 - Jinbe VS Who's-Who

What a exhilarating display of power, technique and composure by Jinbe. I am left in awe. To handle the six forms of the Cipher Pol secret arts and to defend, evade and then counter them. Jinbe is a master for a reason. Who’s Who has been utterly bested. The battle is over but Who’s Who will not be killed by Jinbe as the CP-0 expect. And unbeknownst to the CP-0, there are others present on Onigashima that possess more dangerous knowledge of the secrets hidden in the past that the World Government wishes kept buried (Momonosuke, Yamato, Kaido and Robin).

Edens Zero Chapter 149 – Alternate Eden

Edens Zero chapter 149 - Rebecca wakes up in an alternate future timeline

Electrical signals, huh? That is how Nasseh is able able to configure the Ether of his targets to conform to his instructions by inserting his own Ether program within the electrical signals. How curious. Aside from blocking the signal, would disrupting it also work? With Nasseh’s “hypnosis” nullified, he has resorted to fighting Weisz mecha to mecha. As for Rebecca, she has sent her consciousness forward into a branch of time that has been referred to by a certain character, the ‘worst possible future’. What is the relevance of such a timeline and Rebecca’s presence there?
