Edens Zero Episode 5 Spoilers
In episode 4, after crash-landing on Planet Norma, Shiki, Rebecca, and Happy come across a young man who claims to be Weisz, the professor they came to the planet to see. However, their Weisz is supposed to be several decades older. They save Weisz from an ambush set up by a member of the crew of the local crime boss, Sibir, but Weisz leaves them behind. Later, Rebecca figures out that they have somehow traveled back 50 years into the past and tells Shiki and Happy that they must not do anything that will affect the future.
However, they are soon attacked by Sibir and his crew, and Shiki is forced to use his powers to save himself, Rebecca, and Happy. Later, Rebecca takes them to a bar where she knows that Older Weisz frequents. They find Younger Weisz there and explain their situation, even showing him a picture of his older self. Although Weisz seems to believe them, he says that he can’t help. He carries around a mysterious box that he stole from Sibir, believing that it has money.
Shiki takes it away from him, and the electromagnetic-pulse-emitting robot inside the box gets activated. She introduces herself as E.M. Pino and claims that her master’s voice activated her. However, her memory has been wiped out. The moment she hears Sibir’s name, she undergoes a sudden change and states that the crime boss is her new master. She leaves but not before accepting Shiki’s friendship.
Shiki, Rebecca, and Happy learn about the horrible treatment that Pino has received from Sibir from the B-Cube device she leaves behind. Upon learning that Pino is from their time, Shiki and others decide to help her. In episode 5, Shiki, Rebecca, and Happy might try to rescue Pino from Sibir’s gang. They will likely attack Sibir’s main hideout, prompting a battle between Shiki and Sibir. Weisz will probably be there as well and might try to escape with Pino.
