Edens Zero Chapter 160 – The Flicker Of Stars

Edens Zero Chapter 160 - Homura befriends Seiji

Even with Shura’s forces dissembled, Nero still remains. And with the bulk of the Imperial Army military under his command, he exist as an active player within the conflict around Nero 66. Detached from any analysis, Nero preemptively took matters into his own hands and gambled on the fate he places within his dice. Such a roll dictated he dispatch one of the Temple weaponry to Nero 66, the Sea Serpent. A devastating weapon capable of mass destruction. The death of soldiers on all sides cascade on top of each other leaving but grief, terror and dread in its wake. Beyond the Sea Serpent, what else does Nero have lying in wait?

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).

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 146 – Homura And Milani

Edens Zero chapter 146 - Homura VS Milani - Homura defeat Milani's mirror clones

I had suspected that Milani was more a victim of her surrounding norms than a willful participant who instinctively despised androids but I did not expect that Milani all along cherished androids and only followed Shura out of fear. If Milani has been cornered emotionally and mentally to such an extent, how many other members of the Nero Empire are in a similar situation where even though they know what they are doing is wrong, they can’t help but conform to the status quo lest they risk the wrath and madness of Shura. If the hatred for androids isn’t a universal feeling across the Aoi Cosmos, then defeating Shura and removing Nero’s control over the cosmos can very well help in bringing living beings (mainly humanity) and androids back together. Shura may hate androids but there are those within the Aoi Cosmos that still shed tears for the lives of androids. Will Milani team up with Homura to help stop the All-Link system from activating? And will she also assist in providing information about Ijuna to the Edens team and recovering Witch?

Edens Zero Chapter 145 – Homura: Overdrive Unleashed

Edens Zero chapter 145 - Homura's Ether Gear Overdrive form

How gallant and radiant. The spirit of Valkyrie resonates resoundingly through the courage of your soul, Homura. The rejection of others disapproval of your acceptance of androids has always been a reality you had to face. Where you saw life and felt love, others perceived inanimate objects devoid of feeling. It wasn’t until your encounter with Shiki, Rebecca, Happy, Pino and Weisz that the feelings you held were echoed. Now, once again the rejection of androids and their ability to exist consciously has reappeared around you. As is with the rest of the Edens Zero crew, the fight being waged for the lives of androids is something incredibly personal. While others continue to reject the existences of android, you alongside your comrades have chosen to lay your lives down to fight for those you care about, be it machine or human.

Edens Zero Chapter 144 – Gravity, Time And Space

Edens Zero chapter 144 - Rebecca reverses time for herself

Rebecca has used her powers and reversed herself back 90 seconds which means the whole world she now exist in is the past present from her perspective. For those 90 seconds, anything else that happened within the world outside the facility will also have taken place in the world she came from. This could mean the explosion Shiki was caught up in may not have taken place yet in the world Rebecca reverted to. If everything plays out as it had, Shiki will fall prey to the explosion once more. But given the connection Shiki and Rebecca share, could Shiki have once again had his gravity attract memories of the future present into his current self? Could the Shiki in the current world now be partially aware of the self-destruct protocol the robot is about to activate? If so, will Shiki be able to adapt to the situation using the knowledge he now possesses? And what about Shura, as a Gravity Gear user, can he also attract memories of his other selves from different timelines when Rebecca uses her powers?

Edens Zero Chapter 143 – Shiki VS Shura: Repulsion

Edens Zero chapter 143 - Shiki rejects Shura's hollow offer of friendship

For someone like Shiki to reject ones offer for friendship, that person must be incredibly duplicitous. What should have been a reaction of exuberance from Shiki was instead one of caution. Any sincerity or genuineness was devoid in the weight of Shura’s words upon reaching his hand out. Both the arrogance and ignorance of Shura led him to believe that any offer he would make would be accepted. Yet, Shiki who values friendship tremendously, understood the character of Shura and recognised the type of person he was based on his intentions and actions. Shiki drew a line in the sand and rejected Shura’s offer, something which likely hasn’t happened frequently to Shura. The battle between the two may have paused but Shiki will without question make his way back to Shura and challenge him once again.

Edens Zero Chapter 137-138 – The Fight For Freedom

Edens Zero chapter 137 and chapter 138 colour spread pages

Poseidon Nero’s complete reliance on his dice will ultimately be the foundation of his downfall. The fate that once built him up to where he now resides will become the debilitating thorn in his side when he finds himself without possession of his Empire Dice. At that point without a medium to direct his “fate” onto, how will Nero function? Will he even be able to function at that time? Nero has cast his power away to the dice he possesses and contrary to the expected relation, it is the dice that is in the end controlling Nero. What Nero calls “fate” is but a convenient excuse to run away from the consequences of his decisions. Whatever collateral amounts behind him, Nero deludes himself into rationalising such a reality with the conceited idea that him being victorious is all the justice needed in the world. All else is but an aside to be forgotten about. What once seemed like a reasonable ruler has now revealed the extent of his darkened heart devoid of any emotion for those that follow him. Freedom in such eyes is but a meaningless concept irrelevant to his desire for victory.

The war against the Imperial Army has become not just a fight against Shura and his Oceans but also a battle against Nero and his twisted conceptualisation of governance. A mind like his continuing to remain central to the Aoi Cosmos, will keep the notion of freedom non-existent. Change will only be able to be brought about with his gone.

Edens Zero Chapter 128 – Saving Foresta

Edens Zero chapter 128 - Laguna assisting Hermit with the cooling

With the demon of her past in front of her, Hermit confronts her terror and awakens a realisation within herself that she has things important to her already. People she considers friends. Hermit has liberated herself from the shadow of Müller and expressed her severance from his darkness through that punch carrying the weight of her trauma. Whatever fear Müller cast over Hermit has been cleared and rewritten over with positive emotions. The dream of humans and robots coexisting has been reclaimed. And with it, so too has the safety of Foresta which has had its Doomsday System shutdown.

Edens Zero Chapter 126 – Twisted Terror

Edens Zero chapter 126 - Jinn pleads Sister to help save Kleene

How unnerving. How disconcerting. How frightening. How tragic. The terror that is Dr. Muller continues to darken the minds of his victims by the sheer insanity of his obduracy. Muller is completely oblivious to the unethical nature of acts. Rather, in his mind, he believes what he is inflicting on those he damages is a necessary undertaking for the pursuit of the justice he seeks. Reality has become so twisted for Muller, he genuinely believes what he is doing is consistent with the disposition of the world. Not only has he terrorized Hermit in the past but his victims also extends to Jinn and Kleene who have suffered because of his hunger for “superiority”.
