It has been almost three years since the last episode of Fairy Tail, and even today, we miss the hallmarks of a typical ‘hero’s quest.
However, 2021 is the perfect time to somewhat fill that void with Hiro Mashima’s other work that follows the intergalactic adventure of Shiki Granbell, the Demon King of spaceship Edens Zero.
Based on Hiro Mashima’s original manga, Edens Zero anime has already premiered in Japan on April 11, 2021, and is listed for 25 episodes.
There’s nothing to worry about for the international fans; Eden Zero’s official Twitter account revealed that Netflix would be streaming the series worldwide in Fall 2021.
Apart from that, Mashima has shared an illustration to commemorate the official premiere. It features Shiki, Rebecca, and her cat Happy; you can observe their uncanny similarity with Natsu, Lucy, and the other Happy (Fairy Tail).

Not only that, 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. Thanks to Fairy Tail’s reputation, the new franchise has a considerable viewer base already.
If Fairy Tail was all about magic, guilds, and supernatural creatures, Edens Zero is a similar adventure that revolves around technology, aliens, and space travel instead.
Despite the differences, things like an intense storyline, catchy music, and a heart-warming theme of friendship will remain the same. It’s still too early to say anything, but I am confident that this new show will be the perfect follow-up of Fairy Tail and will probably meet all our expectations.
