Edens Zero is Hiro Mashima’s first venture into the science fiction genre. His past work, Fairy Tail, and Edens Zero are supposed to be different stories altogether.
Yet, it makes us wonder why a familiar talking blue cat called Happy is traipsing around.
The familiar looking characters can be chalked up to Mashima’s characteristic art style that makes fans feel right at home with the new series. We cannot wait to find out more about the character’s comic journey from the anime.
The official website of the Edens Zero anime has revealed a new key visual. The anime will premiere on 10th April on the NTV channel.
The visual shows Shiki Granbell, Rebecca, Happy, Homura, Elisa, Weisz, E.M. Pino and the Mother. The mother is an entity who is regarded as the Goddess of the Cosmos and she is larger than any planet.
Shiki will escape to a new adventure with Rebecca and Happy after leaving his home planet. With space pirates, cosmic entities and adventurers, this anime is ready to take us on another Fairy Tail-like journey.
Three new characters and their cast have been revealed for the anime:
|Weisz Steiner||Hiromichi Tezuka||Seiya Kori (Talentless Nana)|
|E.M. Pino||Shiori Izawa||Pina (Sword Art Online)|
|Homura Kogetsu||Shiki Aoki||Kaoru Tsutsui (Real Girl)|
Comments from the main cast have arrived as well. Takuma Terashima (Shiki), had appeared as a jackal in the Fairy Tail anime where he remembers marvelling at Natsu. He honors that moment and wants to voice Shiki wholeheartedly.
Mikako Komatsu (Rebecca) exclaims that she was moved by the words of the characters after she read the script. She hopes that the audience will look forward to the fun adventure of the three buddies.
Rie Kugimiya (Happy) is excited about the anime just like us. Neither she nor we can wait for it to release!
