Powered by friendship and love, Hiro Mashima’s newest creation Edens Zero is an inter-galactic tale of Shiki, a boy raised by robots, and his adventures while travelling with Rebecca and her robot cat Happy.
While Hiro Mashima’s previous work Fairy Tail was set in a magical land filled with mages, Edens Zero focuses on technology, robots and space travel. With such a fun premise, no wonder Netflix picked up the manga for an anime adaptation.
Now, Netflix has just dropped the official trailer for Edens Zero airing from April 10th at 24:55 on Japanese TV channel NTV and Netflix will soon be sharing info about streaming the series on their platform.
The trailer is a summary of Shiki and Rebecca’s first encounter when Rebecca and Happy’s had decided to visit the Granbell Kingdom. They find Shiki and urge him to go with them and thus starts their epic adventure. Now on their journey they meet new friends, enemies and travel the inter galactic space.
The trailer shares some snippet of Shiki’s fight while the opening theme song “Eden through the rough” by Takanori Nishikawa plays in the background.
The ending theme song is by CHICO with Honeyworks titled “A Vlog of the Journey.”
Information on cast and staff information has also been released.

Edens Zero will soon be getting a 3D RPG game as well. Konami is planning to develop the game and it will soon be released on consoles and mobile devices as well.
If you’ve loved Hiro Mashima’s earlier work Fairy Tail, then you probably should give Edens Zero a try. Not only do the characters share a striking resemblance towards each other, but the similar theme of friendship and helping others in need will certainly drawn you towards watching the anime.
On the other hand, Edens Zero is a very plot heavy manga compared to Fairy Tail. Mashima’s has really worked hard in his new space concept and each arc has better characterization and a darker tone. So, you don’t have to worry about Edens Zero being totally like Fairy Tail.
You can enjoy both regardless. All you have to do is wait till April 10 for its grand release!
