Oh, look who’s back and decided to give us a release date! Edens Zero is an exciting new series and out of all the releases this Geeked Week, this might be the anime to top it all this year. However, nothing’s set in stone yet––we have to watch the series first before concluding anything. With that, here’s everything you need to know about the upcoming Netflix anime series!
What is Edens Zero all about?
Edens Zero is an upcoming Japanese Netflix Original anime series from J.C. Staff adapted from Hiro Mashima’s manga of the same name. A lot––and I mean a lot––of people is sure to recognize the distinct art style of Mashima, mostly known for his creation of one of the biggest animes in the world, Fairy Tail. Rings a bell now, does it?
In the Granbell Kingdom lives a boy named Shiki who lived the entirety of his life alongside machines, animatronics, and the big abandoned amusement park. However, as Rebecca and her cat Happy (literally the one from Fairy Tail) explore the part, they find Shiki––who considers this his first human interaction in a hundred years. When Shiki’s home ultimately becomes the heart of a robotic rebellion, it also becomes too dangerous for Shiki to live in––joining Rebecca and Happy as they travel across space in their spaceship.
When is the release date of Edens Zero Season 1 on Netflix?
Arigato, Geeked Week! Because of you, we learned about the specific release date of Edens Zero. At first, the streaming giant just announced that the anime would be released in 2021––but this time, it’s dropping on the platform on the 26th of August, 2021.
All episodes of the first season will be premiering once it drops on Netflix. As for how many episodes the first season will boast, it still hasn’t been confirmed. But knowing that Hiro Mashima was responsible for this, we could look at something similar to Fairy Tail––around 24 or 48 episodes, at least.
