How has the world become so deserving of anime? Sometimes, these series are the only things that matter the most on some days––and I’m sure you’ll be glad to hear that there’s a fresh one coming out relatively soon. To what may come as a surprise, Hiro Mashima’s Eden Zero will be coming to Netflix internationally in 2021.
As expected, this anime series could become one of, if not, the best Netflix animes of the year (if they miraculously decide to put in Jujutsu Kaisen). So far, here’s everything you need to know about the anime––from the plot, the cast, trailers, and the long-awaited release date.

What is Edens Zero all about?
Edens Zero is an upcoming Netflix Original Japanese anime series from the genius of J.C. Staff. The series is hugely inspired by author Hiro Mashima’s manga series of the same name. Mashima’s name is no stranger to the anime world. In fact, he might just be the biggest of them all––especially after creating Fairy Tail, of course.
According to What’s on Netflix, the plot is stated to be as:
“In the Granbell Kingdom, inside of an abandoned amusement park, the young boy Shiki has lived his entire life amongst the machines and animatronics. Unbeknownst to Rebecca, and her cat companion Happy, who are exploring the park, they are the first human contact that Shiki has had in a hundred years. When Shiki’s home becomes the centre of a robotic rebellion, it becomes too dangerous for him to stay, so he joins Rebecca and Happy in their spaceship as they travel the cosmos.“
When is Edens Zero Season 1 premiering on Netflix?
Trailers have saved the day for everyday Netflix users. With the trailer, we can confirm that the anime series is coming to Netflix in 2021. Which month, however, is still a mystery to us. Either way, we’re just happy that the series is premiering this year.
Outside of Japan, the series has been licensed for distribution by the streaming giant. However, it’s unlikely that we’ll see the anime soon enough. In Japan, Edens Zero will be broadcast on Japan’s Nippon TV where it will premiere on the 11th of April, 2021. As for Netflix watchers, expect that the anime series will be arriving around the fourth quarter of the year––somewhere around October, November, or December.
How many episodes are there for Edens Zero Season 1?
Well, the trailer really hasn’t said much about how many episodes the anime series will hold––and what trailer in the right mind will do that in the first place? However, Mashima’s existence within the series could highly affect how many episodes there are in a season. Considering Fairy Tail, Edens Zero may have anywhere between 24 and 48 episodes a season.
Not too bad for a first season, eh?
Who are the cast members of Edens Zero?
Though the English dub still hasn’t been announced, the voice actors for the Japanese dub have already been confirmed and listed:
- Takuma Terashima as Shiki Granbell
- Mikako Komatsu as Rebecca Bluegarden
- Shiki Aoki as Homura Kougetsa
- Hiromichi Tezuka as Weisz Steiner
- Rie Kugimiya as Happy
- Shiori Izawa as E.M. Pino
- Sayaka Ohara as Elsie Crimson
- Houchuu Ootsuka as Ziggy
- Kikuko Inoue as Mother
There are a handful of people expecting great things about the anime––and for good reason. It’s a Mashima project with voice actors ranging from those who’ve voiced for big animes like FMA: Brotherhood, Jujutsu Kaisen, Demon Slayer, and even One Punch Man. If it does meet the standard, Netflix has got themselves a pretty big anime in the books.
Is there a trailer for Edens Zero?
Oh, you bet there is––and it’s as epic as how you’d imagine Mashima’s stories would be. Watch it below!
