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).

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 181 – Appearance Of A God

Edens Zero Chapter 181 - God Acnoella appears

What an unexpected complication for there to be within this eleventh hour. Not only was Ziggy able to ally with Deadend Crow but it has now also come to the Edens Zero’s attention that Ziggy too engaged into an alliance with God Acnoella. The terms of such an agreement remain a mystery but with another member of the Oración Seis Galáctica joining Ziggy, the battle at hand has become an insurmountable task for those looking to end death and destruction. Ziggy has revealed part of his hand and now it is up to the Edens Zero team to respond. Will another potential ally of there’s reveal itself or can their current forces handle two Oración Seis Galáctica and Ziggy.

Edens Zero Chapter 180 – Summoning The Chronophage

Edens Zero Chapter 190 - The Chronophage approaches Lendard

One of the most creative concepts Mashima-sensei introduced in Edens Zero and once again it continues to fascinate. The Chronophage, it was bound to resurface sooner or later and it appears that in an arc where Ziggy is the enemy residing on a planet that has been converted into an living military android production factory, the circumstances have aligned to bring it back into focus. The Chronophage is an existence that is drawn to time and for yet unknown reasons, consumes time. Whether it is for sustenance or accumulation of energy for a certain objective, too little is known at present to lean on any specific conclusion. I suspect though that there is an intention driving the Chronophage’s actions, one that is very particular about the planets targeted.

Edens Zero Chapter 178 – Rebecca And Labilia: Friends

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

That was entirely more wholesome than I was anticipating. A relationship built not on hate but rather love that became warped into expressions of toxic projection. Labilia always respected Rebecca, she just could not find a way to accurately convey such feelings toward Rebecca. The apprehension, expectation, confusion and desire to thank Rebecca converged into a what would become the only way in which Labilia knew how to release herself and that was making content for her B-cuber channel. Labilia never genuinely wanted to hurt Rebecca, she just didn’t know how to go about opening herself up to Rebecca until she finally made peace with the reality of her death.

Edens Zero Chapter 177 – Holy: Thorns Of Darkness

Edens Zero Chapter 177 - The blessings of Holy

As expected from a rose, complimenting such beauty and vibrance are the existence of thorns. Sharp and deadly thorns that impale any subject to the roses enchantment. Holy behind her divine radiance hides a darkness akin to thorns presiding alongside the rose. Wanting to be both adored and feared, Holy initiates her methodology and filters her proposal through Shiki and the Edens Zero crew. Words of alignment and explanatory reasoning coat the proposition yet behind the visage may exist a thread of deception ready to make Shiki and his crew bleed. Will Holy become an enemy or settle as an independent player within the storm looking to ravage the Edens Zero crew?

Edens Zero Chapter 176 – Holy: Hand Of Friendship

Edens Zero Chapter 176 - Holy reaches out a hand of friendship to Shiki and Rebecca

Curious doesn’t even begin to define the situation currently centering around Holy. Existing within a group opposing Shiki yet personally locating him to not extend the chains of justice but instead to reach out with a hand offering friendship? What is the end play sought by Holy? Does the Interstellar Union Army not represent her reality but rather a vehicle to sustain her own personal mission? If her ideals aren’t solely intertwined within the intentions of the Interstellar Union Army, her actions of deviating from the Oración Seis Interstellar’s objective would be based on a foundation foreshadowing a deeper relevance to the worlds existing in the shadows. Shiki may have aged but his interest in befriending others still remains and with Holy approaching him in such an unaggressive and inviting manner, there shouldn’t be a reason for Shiki to reject her proposal of friendship.

Edens Zero Chapter 174 – Feather: Meeting Shiki

Edens Zero Chapter 174 - Shiki and Feather meet

The mechanics behind the Eye of God power leaves much mystery in it’s wake. How does it function? How does it analyse information? And how does it assist in constructing a path forward for the user? It’s natural operation seems straight forward – it receives information and uses that to predict the future. When defining the type of information it uses in its analysis, it becomes incredibly more fascinating – what form does that information take? Does the Eye of God power act on general information or specific? It likely overlaps between the two with seemingly more emphasis to the general interpretation based on the overarching nature of the power. The fact that Shiki was able to escape Feather’s “sight” implies the rigidity in its interpretation. A reasonable person may have behaved in the manner Feather predicted but after her meeting with Shiki, she now knows that Shiki isn’t someone ordinary. Feather’s Eye of God power going forward will continue to stumble when attempting to predict Shiki’s next action.

Edens Zero Chapter 173 – Feather: Eye Of God

Edens Zero Chapter 173 - Feather intercepting the Edens Zero before they head back to the Kaede Cosmos

As the Edens Zero prepares to assault the planet Lendard, they first take a detour to Blue Garden in order to drop off Connor at the Adventurer’s Guild – Shooting Starlight. In addition to meeting Noah, they also find themselves targeted by the Interstellar Union Army, specifically, Feather of the Oración Seis Interstellar. Just like Noah, she possess the Eye of God Ether Gear that has the ability to observe the locations of people through both space and time. Unlike Noah though, Feather has seemingly kept the information of Rebecca’s abnormal positioning to herself. Neither the Oración Seis Interstellar or the Interstellar Union army are aware of the abilities Rebecca possesses. Why is this the case?
