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 159 – Laguna VS Ijuna: Destiny

Edens Zero chapter 159 - The tears that restore ones heart

A heart brought to the point of desperation where the desire for survival constructed the deception that was the affection Ijuna felt toward Shura. It was an escape from the agony washing over Ijuna day after day, cruelty after cruelty, torture after torture. A subconscious defensive mechanism activated alongside her Ether Gear and in the maelstrom of hopelessness and torment, a red string of ether driven by anguish connected Ijuna to Shura. The love binding Ijuna to Shura is but an illusion of emotions conjured by her despair and connection to Ether. What ultimately saved Ijuna were the tears of her heart longing for the bonds she was already connected by. Unbreakable bonds that tied Oasis together in the form of their desire for liberation. Laguna awakened Ijuna’s heart and released Ijuna from the bindings entrapping her allowing her to sever the red thread tying her to Shura. The destiny awaiting Ijuna isn’t Shura but the red destiny of Oasis.

Edens Zero Chapter 158 – Laguna VS Ijuna: Broken

Edens Zero Chapter 158 - Laguna VS Ijuna

I was not expecting such a dark take on the tragedy existing in Ijuna’s past. To think that what led Ijuna to commit her servitude to the Imperial Empire was not her desire to gain vengeance on Shura but rather the fragility of the human mind being brought to the point of hopelessness and despondency. In the state of perpetual torture, her psyche broke and began being shaped by the twisted narrative of despair. In the pit of darkness, Shura became her light and guided by the desire to end her suffering, her mind warped her perception to conjure illusions of affection. The nature of her pure soul became dyed by such anguish and served to fetter her mind from recalling a reality outside such torment. Ijuna was psychologically broken down and brainwashed by Shura into championing the corrupt and inhumane actions of himself and the Imperial Empire he seeks to shape.

Edens Zero Chapter 157 – Laguna And Ijuna: Oasis

Edens Zero chapter 157 - Laguna and Ijuna encounter each other

And so they meet. An encounter destined to manifest from the moment the existence of the Oasis Princess was first revealed. The circumstances surrounding her perceived death was not only suspicious but foreshadowing toward this moment. I have championed this encounter and supported Laguna’s role in turning Ijuna into an ally. Ijuna may appear antagonistic but the manner of her actions seem directed toward an end which she conceded would justify her means. Ijuna was not in support of Shura but rather awaiting an opportunity to exact the revenge boiling within her. While physically close to Shura, she emotionally distanced herself from him. All her efforts tempered the axe she wishes to bring down on Shura’s head. Laguna will not only melt the ice freezing her heart and soul but reconnect the thread of family submerged under that ocean of hatred that has frozen over. The clouds of anger blocking the warmth from reaching Ijuna will dissipate allowing the light of joy and freedom to shine through once again. Her Oasis is not lost.

Edens Zero Chapter 154 – Kris & Kleene VS Callum & Lyra: Mist

Edens Zero chapter 154 - Kris and Kleene VS Callum and Lyra

And the roar of the Wind is deafened by the weight of the Mist. An unexpected reunion uncovering memories from Kris’s past from his time at the Skymech Dojo throws Kris into an unstable position with memories of his past influencing his actions against the opponent before him. Not only was it shocking to learn that the Skymech Dojo was based on Guilst at one point but that Callum was a member of the Dojo too when Kris attended it as Jinn. Such a relation characterized by the seniority of Callum won’t be inconsequential to the behaviour of Kris within this battle. Callum is not just an opponent Kris can fight with a closed heart. Regardless of how distant they were during their time in the Skymech Dojo, there were connected by a shared experience.

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 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?

Edens Zero Chapter 147 – Oceans 6: Lyra And Nasseh

Edens Zero chapter 147 - Lyra, the new commander of Shura's forces

More members of the Oceans 6 begin to move targeting the Edens Zero team that they are aware of whom have snuck inside the Nero 66 facility. As first impressions go about the personality of Lyra and Nasseh, I can’t help but notice the hubris emanating from their dialogue and composure. Elevated they are by their own power that the prospect of a challenge has ceased to exist as a possibility within their minds. The Oceans 6 shown within this chapter carry themselves as the next step of Aoi Cosmos warriors. Powerful they may be but contained within a regulated bubble they have existed, at least in terms of their time within the Imperial Army. The universe is vast with impossibility only a word.

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 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?
