If Hiro Mashima-senpai's goal was to shock me in every chapter as if he put cattle prods in the pages, then he's certainly achieving that goal at the very least. Not only that, but the chapter gets even better because I can't make any unfavourable comparisons to Fairy Tail this time!

Our chapter begins with Rebecca showing Shiki his room, and then he asks if he can try flying the ship. It crashes almost immediately. Insert "lol" here. Thanks to Shiki's Gravity Gear, he makes the ship weightless to lift it up. And speaking of the Gravity Gear, Shiki makes the discovery that this is where Earth Ether comes from, raining down from the sky. Happy explains to a confused Shiki that Ether is "power" also known as "magic" or "spiral energy" or "ki" or "chi" or "some other power source from so many other fictional stories".
|Geez, Rebecca. Would it have killed you to give him a heads-up? (HA! Heads-up! HA!)|
|Oh Mashima-senpai. One day, you'll get your own DxD series. I believe in you.|
Oh and then we take a gentle stroll to 20000 YEARS LATER, where two astronauts discover two human corpses and one of them has the necklace of Happy on it, which has the words "Eden's Zero."
Opinion: Ow. That turn hurt me!
So apparently, in 20000 years time, something relevant to the current time is going to happen. Or has happened already... This timeskip, plus the introduction of a young Wise, is definitely hinting at some sort of time travel plot. The Professor Wise that we're seeing, if I had to guess, is one from the past before he met Rebecca and Happy.
|This picture is so surreal and so strange, that I don't even know how to comment on it.|
As for the final page, in which an astronaut finds Happy's necklace and it says "Eden's Zero"... well, I have no clue but I am utterly intrigued! Hiro Mashima-senpai definitely has something big planned, and it's great to see him moving with the times and adapting. Too many mangakas try to write as they work without planning, and the series can suffer because of it. (Hello, Buu arc!). I can see why Mashima-senpai was so excited to release this story.
Manga Rating: 4/5
Character of the Week: Shiki for the general laughs.
Best Part: Future things!
Worst Part: Not much to really discuss without guessing, hence the short review.
|"Wise" because he's a professor. "Steiner" as in Frankenstein. Subtle.|
Born under the stars of the Dark Gods, Shiggins owns the power of the Great Eye and is utterly magnificent in his omniscience. If you dare to discover more about someone as great as him, then go ahead. And to all my friends and family members, YOU are wrong and I should be disappointed! Not the other way round!,. You can find out about him or ask him stuff on ask.fm/shigginsishere or go to his tumblr page http://otakugajeel.tumblr.com/
