Edens Zero is one of those anime that has led fans love sci-fi and utopic storylines. Edens Zero may appear to some as a rehash especially with characters whose designs recollects some of Mashima’s prior works. But Edens Zero, on the other hand, stands out for its well-balanced mix of shonen-typical features in an outer space scenario, as well as a more mature tone.

After a terrific first season, fans of Edens Zero will be thrilled to find that Shiki and the crew of Edens Zero are in for more adventures. Edens Zero is an internationally licensed Netflix Original Japanese anime series created by J.C. Staff, based on Hiro Mashima’s manga series of the same name. Many fans would remember Mashima’s distinctive artwork, who is best known for his work on Fairy Tail.

What does the series bring to the table?

Shiki has already acquired a few friends via his experiences with Rebecca and Happy since leaving his Granbell Kingdom home. Shiki, now the true captain and owner of the space ship Edens Zero, has enlisted the help of the Hermit to restore the ship’s full strength, and after Valkyrie’s death, Homura has stepped up to assume her old master’s place on the ship.

Shiki and the crew of Edens Zero may finally begin their adventure beyond the Sakura Cosmos now that all four bright stars have been collected. However, Drakken Joe and his massive space castle, the Belial Gore, are on the hunt!

How many more seasons of Edens Zero can we expect?

There are presently 171 published manga chapters as of this writing, which is slightly short of the 60+ chapters we expect from each season. The manga, on the other hand, is still active, and there will be dozens more chapters published by the end of the second season. This implies we may anticipate a third and fourth season of Edens Zero at the very least.

Edens Zero Plot

Shiki Granbell is a human Ether Gear user who lives on Granbell, a barren theme park world in the Sakura Cosmos, amid robots. Two space-traveling B-Cubers, Rebecca Bluegarden and her robotic cat companion Happy, pay a visit to the park one day, and Shiki befriends them as they make movies for their online account, Aoneko Channel. The three set off to explore the world in quest of Mother, the mythological goddess of the cosmos, when the park’s robots forced them off the planet to rescue Shiki from being stuck before their batteries died. Shiki inherits the interstellar cruiser Edens Zero from his grandpa figure, the mechanical Demon King Ziggy, who piloted the ship on a previous mission for Shiki’s mother.
