Edens Zero Chapter 189 – Rebecca VS Clown: Conviction

Edens Zero Chapter 189 - Rebecca activates Ether Overdrive to fight Clown

The concept of strength exist in a state beyond the perception of ones abilities. Components comprising ones power incorporates more than just the martial proficiency of an individual. Awareness, determination, empathy, resonance, compatibility, familiarity, adaptation and luck are some elements that define the extents of ones abilities. And when it comes to Rebecca, she may not have battle experience equivalent to what the other members of the Edens Zero possess but what she does have is a brilliant acumen toward tackling obstacles and rising above them. Rebecca accepts her current state and rather than dwell on what she does not possess, she had directed her attention toward what she can do and utilising that to stand against those challenging the bonds of her family. The perception of strength is inconsequential to the conviction she holds towards her decision of protecting her family.

[Analysis] Edens Zero – Labilia: The Girl Who Lost Herself In Her Affection

Edens Zero Chapter 178 - Rebecca reaches out to Labilia as a friend

I was indifferent to Labilia’s character initially but after chapter 178, I began to see her in a completely new light. That chapter not only highlighted Rebecca’s embracing self but it also recontextualized the entire relationship Labilia and Rebecca share.

Since their first time interacting with each other, they were bonded as B-cubers. The relationship may have been a toxic and negative one on the surface but with Labilia’s side of the story now being told, we have come to understand to an extent what was really going on with her. Labilia never meant malice through her actions but her love had just become too twisted from her confused mind. She couldn’t comprehend Rebecca and within that fog, she began to express her feelings for Rebecca in unorthodox ways.

[Analysis] One Piece – The Okuchi No Makami And Its Role As Guardian Deity Of Wano

One Piece Chapter 1025 - Yamato defends against Kaido

Zoan Devil Fruits have been charactertized in a different context relative to their Paramecia and Logia counterparts. Rather than just possessing and imbuing power, Zoan Devil Fruits also possess a will of their own and are able to express themselves in ways impossible for the Paramecia and Logia Devil Fruits. Due to having a will, inanimate objects or lifeless mediums possessing no will of their own are able to become host for the Zoan Devil Fruits such as guns, swords, teapots or gaseous slimes. Life is able to be established within these mediums due to the nature of Zoan Devil Fruits. Further, it is also implied that the Zoan Devil Fruits have some power over deciding who consumes them. The Nika Fruit evaded the World Government for over 800 years because it did not want to fall into their hands. With that in mind, could the Okuchi no Makami Fruit have chosen Yamato to be its user for specific reasons?

One Piece Chapter 1047 – Luffy VS Kaido: Battle Of Haki

One Piece Chapter 1047 - Luffy readies his attack toward Kaido

Kaido came out and straight said it, no matter how powerful someone’s Devil Fruit, if their opponents Haki is stronger, they will be the overwhelmed. Both Kaido and Luffy possess Mythical Zoans and both possess Haoshoku Haki. They have been evenly matched and are now in their last legs in terms of endurance. What Luffy seeks to do is send one last attack Kaido’s way that is impossible to dodge and defend against. A fist so massive that it covers the skies and almost rivals Onigashima in size. Onigashima is in Luffy’s way and Momonosuke is tasked to move it before the hammer of Luffy drops.

Edens Zero Chapter 188 – Shiki VS Wizard: Breakthrough

Edens Zero Chapter 188 - Shiki defeats Wizard

Shiki has finally arrived at the curiosity that is Ziggy’s actions and the enigma surrounding them. Before returning to Granbell and leaving the Edens Zero, Ziggy wasn’t driven by dark intentions but he still proceeded to wipe the memories of the Four Shining Stars that related to events outside the Sakura Cosmos. Initially I believed that Ziggy intended to hide any information referencing Mother that the Four Shining Stars knew but the theory Shiki presented in regards to Ziggy expecting to fall to the dark side put the past in a whole new context. Ziggy anticipated falling to the Dark Side and in hopes of establishing a safeguard against himself, he chose to abandon his mission to find Mother and focus on developing Shiki as a counter to his power. All in order to prevent what Ziggy feared deeply – the end of coexistence.

Edens Zero Chapter 187 – Shiki VS Wizard: Blind Spot

Edens Zero Chapter 187 - Shiki faces off against Wizard

The implications pertaining to the revelation at the end of the chapter echoes a deeper regard toward the history of the constructs of Ziggy. Why do they know each other and when did they have the chance to encounter each other? Were the Shining and Dark Stars “created” by Ziggy or transformed by him into the form they now take. Unlike any of the other robots Ziggy has created, the Shining and Dark Stars bear a close resemblance to humans in the form they take – why? Why not design your elite force to look more mechanical than human? Could it be that the Shining and Dark Stars aren’t machines by origin but in fact humans who at some point Ziggy decided to save/use by reviving their minds in a mechanical body?

Fairy Tail: 100 Years Quest Chapter 105 – Erza VS Misaki: Scarlet Enchantment

Fairy Tail: 100 Years Quest Chapter 105 - Erza channels Jellal through her attack

Warfare truly is grounded on information and for those lacking in it, the consequences can be irreparable. Neither Erza nor Misaki knew what the other was capable of but the assessment of what was possible came to define where victory ultimately settled. Misaki presumed her superiority and as if covering her own eyes, she neglected to take into account variances to past experiences. Erza on the other hand, continuously took steps to improve herself by learning new magics. And the aspect of the battle that concluded the conflict was the Enchantment magic Erza had learned from Wendy. A Scarlet magic encapsulating Erza’s love and rage. Love she feels toward Jellal and rage directed at Misaki for cutting her precious hair.

One Piece Chapter 1046 – Luffy VS Kaido: Rhythm Of Liberation

One Piece Chapter 1046 - Luffy and Kaido ready their climatic attacks

Amidst the sheer outlandishness on display, Kaido can’t help but wonder who Luffy is and how the shift in his power and presence evolved since their first encounter. Kaido’s perspective of Luffy continuously kept transitioning throughout their encounters. From a rookie unable to truly comprehend the realms of an Emperor toward one who was capable of challenging the Yonko and pushing them to the brink. Kaido now recognises Luffy’s spirit and acknowledges the will he possesses as genuine. In conjunction with Kaido’s changing view, Zunesha too is having a reevaluation of their thoughts. Zunesha did not believe Luffy was Joy Boy when they first met during the Zou Arc but now after Luffy awakened Gear Fifth and the Nika Fruit, Zunesha understands that Luffy is the one who has inherited Joy Boy’s will. After over 800 years of separation, Zunesha has experienced the rhythm of his dear friend who could not accomplish the mission he began all those centuries ago. Zunesha’s heart danced to the sound emanating from Luffy inspiring them to put all of their hopes into Luffy. All those subject to Luffy’s awakening may view it from different avenues from they all arrive at the point where they are left in awe on what is on display.

[Theory] Edens Zero – How Witch Can Return Using The Chronophage

Edens Zero Chapter 164 - Witch cover page

One of the most fascinating and creative aspects of Edens Zero are the existence of Chronophages which presents a unique spin on the time-travel mechanic popular in science fiction stories. Rather than tethering space and time into one encapsulating concept where time overarches all space, the Chronophage distort that reality and detaches time from the overall space, restricting it to just the space in their proximity. What this allows for are time-travel instances that don’t drag the whole world setting along with its momentum. It introduces a more manageable mechanic existing outside time paradoxes that is just as fascinating as general time travel if not more. You can have two version of a character present in the same time or a planet saved from the corruption of insatiable greed by turning its present state into a past form. Additionally, another event that is theoretically possible using the nature of the Chronophage is having a fallen character return back into the story i.e. Witch.

Edens Zero Chapter 186 – The Four Dark Stars

Edens Zero Chapter 186 - Edens Zero encounters the Four Dark Stars

After a directed introduction and a sacrificial encounter with one of the Oración Seis Interstellar members, the Four Dark Stars are now set-up to face off against the main force of the Edens Zero. The way the Four Dark Stars were introduced, they were doubtlessly arranged to be foils for the Four Shining Stars in regards to their representation as programs over beings. The presence of a metaphysical heart created a divide between the versions and established a conflict requiring an answer. Were the Four Dark Stars superior because of their designs and advanced hardware? Or was the freedom present in the Four Shining Stars programming an element that defined a new path of evolution? Such a variation has become a story that is still ongoing. Even though the original Four Shining Stars are not present in the fight, I wholeheartedly hope that events would navigate themselves into seeing the Four Shining Stars match up against the Four Dark Stars.
