Edens Zero Chapter 252 Recap

Edens Zero chapter 242, Shiki, Rebecca, and Prof. Weisz use Wormhole to transport themselves onto the EZ while the others deal with the Joker copies. Prof. Weisz’s objective is to repair Joker. However, after they arrive at the far end of the ship from Joker, they discover that everything inside the ship, including Shiki and Prof. Weisz, is frozen.

Joker creates a series of video game worlds where she and Rebecca fight, including a 16-bit RPG, a bike racer, and 2D fighting game, leading to one of the coolest chapters in the series. Rebecca is one of the characters Joker remembers from when she was a standard game engine, although Rebecca was unaware of it back then.

Joker aims to collect Mother Ether for Void, but she also wants to “play” with Rebecca again. However, Prof. Weisz created a watch that cancels Joker’s power, allowing Shiki and Prof. Weisz to enter the game world where they, along with Rebecca, fight Joker as stereotypical RPG characters.
