Space pirate Elsie gives Shiki the warship he needs to continue his quest to find Mother. Little did he know, the ship belonged to the Demon King Ziggy! Once aboard, Shiki and the crew meet Witch, one of the Demon King's Four Shining Stars, who welcomes Shiki as the new Demon King. When the group ends up at planet Blue Garden while chasing the remaining Shining Stars, they are swept up in a heinous plot to kidnap B-Cubers! However, in the shadows lurks a chaos beyond anything Shiki and his friends could have ever imagined...

Things are starting to heat up in this third volume of Edens Zero. We have some questions about Rebecca and her power and if she can use hers like Shiki which would presumably be addressed at some point in the future. The way has definitely been left open for her to get a power up though! Not long after settling in to the new ship however, and establishing themselves as a team, we get a new team member in the form of Witch. Witch is an android charged with maintenance and one of the Demon Kings Four Shining Stars. 

Thanks to Witch, the ship gets an upgrade and thus we have...Edens Zero. Yep the ship is called Edens Zero. Boom. It also appears Shiki is the new King. 

I have to say, this volume has a snappy pace. After settling in we're quickly given a mission and something to aim for. Namely gathering the other three Shining Stars so that they'll have a chance at making it past the border and the dragons in search of Mother. We also get introduced to Homura in this volume, who seems kind of shady as willing as she is to help. 

While our team is given a goal to aim for, we get sidetracked in this volume as we have to carry out a rescue mission which provides us plenty of action and excitement to keep this volume moving at a fast pace. Of course we do come face to face with another of the Shining Stars which presents us with a little bit of a mystery. 

I'm loving the bonds of friendship and the teamwork already between our crew members, and I love how Weisz just keeps on coming back. I'm also enjoying how things are picking up this volume. I feel like this volume the story is really getting in to its stride, and there's a more solid direction for the plot to head in as the storyline is given a focus when the characters are given a goal! We do get left on an interesting cliffhanger though as four characters are ready to throw down and our latest character has some suspicious motives. Things have certainly gotten interesting!
