Fairy Tail: 100 Years Quest Chapter 107 – Selene VS Ignia: Diversion

Fairy Tail: 100 Years Quest Chapter 107 - Selene and Ignia clash

Ignia presents himself as such an entitled fool. He has disillusioned himself to the point of believing he is the strongest existence walking the Earth Land but where was he when the real threats of the world endangered life and brought everything to the brink of annihilation? Ah, that is right, he was hiding in Guiltina away from Acnologia. Ignia keeps mentioning he was stronger than Acnologia and that he would have killed Acnologia had he met him. But all Ignia has to pad his claims are words. Hollow, exaggerated, meaningless words. At no time during the 400 years Acnologia was present did Ignia even attempt to face him. Not even when Acnologia himself was present in Guiltina during the attempt Gildarts made at the 100-year-quest. Ignia hid. And now he has the gall to preach himself as the hero who could have taken down Acnologia? Sorry but I don’t buy that. Ignia is much weaker than he believes. His claim of being stronger than Acnologia is just a fantasy. A diversion from reality his mind enraptured his belief in to cope with his own inabilities. Even now, against Selene, he used a moment of distraction to capitalize on Selene’s weakened guard. The path Ignia has before him is one where the bitter reality of truth will come crashing down on him.

Edens Zero Chapter 190 – Rebecca VS Clown: Nightmare

Edens Zero Chapter 190 - Rebecca equips Happy guns

Clowns are often representative of entertainment but beyond the joy they reflect onto children, they also find symbolic meaning in nightmares within pop culture. This is why horror themed settings feature Clowns and amusement parks prominently within its narrative. There is a certain inherent terror sourced from subjects that embody innocence such as clowns, nuns, dolls or children. One of the most well known and genuinely terrifying horror characters is a clown (Pennywise). Following in tune with such a depiction, Clown’s Requip mode is a Nightmare version of his self. One that reflects the darker side of clowns. And true to its portrayal, the ominous cloud of terror is immediately felt as Rebecca disappears from sight leaving just Pino and Happy alone with Clown. (Pro tip: Don’t talk to clowns that happen to be in sewers).

Fairy Tail: 100 Years Quest Chapter 106 – Selene VS Ignia: Distortion

Fairy Tail: 100 Years Quest Chapter 106 - Selene arrives to stop Ignia

Ignia’s abrupt entrance within the conflict between Fairy Tail and Diabolos reveals itself to be based on an alliance comprised of Ignia and Dogramag. A plan set in motion between the two sometime before Dogramag’s fall with Dogramag taking it upon himself to utilise the magic of Elefseria’s human heart to move forward the intentions of Ignia. Dogramag didn’t have the opportunity to share his ideas with Ignia before he died but Ignia eventually sensed a disturbance and paid the Labyrinth of Dogramag a visit. Ignia discovered what Dogramag left behind which at this point does not appear to require the human heart of Elefseria anymore. Selene confronted Ignia but was unable to stop him from destroying the heart and when she expressed her reasoning behind her opposition to him, Ignia retorts with the Age of Dragons is “only just beginning”. This response from Ignia suggest the plan Dogramag and he constructed involves a potential revival of Dragons. What did Dogramag do with Elefseria’s heart and how does Ignia intend to revive the Dragons?

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.

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.

[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.
