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 185 – Elsie VS Ziggy: The Arrival Of Justice

Edens Zero Chapter 185 - Justice arrives to save Elsie

Capitalizing on his deception, Ziggy continues to force Elsie’s defenses down in order to land a finishing blow on her. Elsie on the other hand, struggling to stabilize her mind and body from the injury, is given no time to evaluate what just happened due to immediately and continuously being barraged by forces of gravity. Likely, Elsie’s mind is still reeling from the unintended reaction at Ziggy’s hollow and dishonest plea. Elsie fully intended to kill Ziggy but something within her heart compelled her to pause at the performance of Ziggy. An act that reached deep inside Elsie’s heart and triggered feelings Elsie thought she locked deep away before engaging in this battle. Along with her body being in shock from the injury, her mind as well remained in disbelief. Thankfully though, a third party arrived to save her from such a situation. A savior in the form of a person who too wishes to kill her. Justice.

Edens Zero Chapter 184 – Elsie VS Ziggy: Impact

It is not easy to vilify a parental figure within your life, especially one who removed you from circumstances embedded in destruction, terror and war. When Elsie looks at Ziggy, she is reminded of a time in her life impressed in joy, love and salvation. Ziggy did save Elsie and the subsequent care she received aboard the Edens Zero established an environment within which she could recover physically, mentally and spiritually. To Elsie, the image of Ziggy had become synonymous with shades of altruism. And to now reconcile those feelings against the current reality that Ziggy is in fact a madman seeking to end life, the step she is required to take may in fact be too heavy within this moment.

Elsie was the spark that ignited the conflict overflowing within factions of the Kaede Cosmos. She may not have been the cause for the conflict but she did become the basis on which the dissenting factions could maneuver their antagonism through. Under the pretense of “unraveling an unchecked power that grew too strong” war was waged. Guilt would have been one of the elements gnawing away within Elsie as she sunk within misery but it was due to the crew of the Edens Zero that her young self could navigate out from that darkness and onto a path filled with hope and motivation. Elsie is who she is because of the time she spent aboard the Edens Zero. Such emotions within her heart resonates every moment she interacts with Ziggy. The battle she wages is not only against Ziggy but also against the impressions of her heart that recalls happier times.

Edens Zero Chapter 183 – Elsie Crimson: Home

Edens Zero Chapter 183 - Elsie and Ziggy face off

Lendard was not only a former kingdom in the Kaede Cosmos but it was in fact the homeworld of Elsie Crimson, whose real name is Elsie Le Lendard. This planet was the one where Elsie’s life changed forever after attempting to end the obsession the kingdom had for arms development. In pursuit of such an end, she unknowingly initiated a war that would engulf the whole Cosmos and end the rule of the Le Lendard family. Her choices driven by innocent hopes of peace resulted in the destruction of the society existing within the Kaede Cosmos. Additionally, it was during her escape from Lendard where she lost/injured her right eye. Now having returned home, Elsie seeks to put a stop to Lendard’s weapon manufacturing once again. This time by defeating 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.

[Theory] Edens Zero – Was Pino Created On Granbell?

Edens Zero Chapter 179 - Holy notes Pino's relevance

Pino is one of the most mysterious characters in Edens Zero. In addition to her lost memory, there is also her enigmatic origins and the reserved focus Mashima-sensei has been handling Pino with throughout the story so far. It has been stated that Ziggy created her but if that was the case, why has Ziggy not created any more anti-bots? He is an android, so he surely must know the process involved in creating an anti-bot unless there are reasons he cannot create anti-bots.

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 172 – The Edenverse: Universe 3

Edens Zero Chapter 172 - Ziggy awaiting the Edens Zero to finally crush them

The dynamics between time, space and Rebecca’s relevance comes to the forefront within this chapter as allusions to her role going forward continues to nudge at the deeper mysteries within Edens Zero. In addition to affecting the flow of the future, Rebecca has also become the key to unlocking and developing the existence of the Multiverse. What this means is that while one world exist, so to do countless others. Similar yet radically different worlds that are both connected and independent from one another residing and breathing alongside each other. Where Rebecca comes in is possessing the unique ability of being able to navigate through such worlds. Not only is Rebecca able to manipulate time and space relative to her world but her ability to displace herself allows her to transition “herself” into spaces outside the one she usually exist in. The applicability of such a power means that the Multiverse, or in this case, the Edenverse, is going to become a more prominent setting for the story going forward. A setting that will drive and dictate the story.

Edens Zero Chapter 171 – Kaede Cosmos: Finding Ziggy

Edens Zero Chapter 171 - Three years later character reveal 2

Perpetually in a state of reaction, the Edens Zero have constantly failed to close the distance between themselves and Ziggy over the past three years. Whenever they acquired pieces of information that led them to Ziggy, he was always one step ahead and one moment later. Without a proper information network, all the Edens Zero had been doing is filtering information that had already expired in terms of encountering Ziggy. Facing such a barrier, their encounter with Connor could be a blessing or a seed planted by Ziggy to blossom into the ruin that may end up engulfing them.

Edens Zero Chapter 169 – Declaration And Resolve

Edens Zero chapter 169 - 3 years later Shiki

That awkward moment you get when the bandage on Shiki’s face that existed since the very first chapter turns out to be surprise reveal. I noticed it yet I didn’t notice it. The bandage blended in with Shiki’s overall design that I never found myself wondering why it was there. The moment Shiki began to remove his bandage, my mind literally arrived at the thought – ‘there was a bandage there?’ For a scar that embodies a major moment in Shiki’s life, Mashima-sensei did an amazing job hiding such a relevance. The revelation was such a discombobulating one that I do feel I hoodwinked myself by failing to acknowledge the relevance of the bandage earlier. Even future Shiki that Rebecca met had the scar. What a rush though. Shiki’s scar not only represents a meaningful moment in his past but the act of him removing the bandage signals his resolve to continue forward with his eyes wide open in regards to Ziggy.
