Preview: Edens Zero Episode 1

Based on a manga series written and illustrated by Hiro Mashima, ‘Edens Zero’ is a space fantasy anime show. While creating the manga series, Mashima reused certain elements from arguably his most popular work, ‘Fairy Tail,’ including character designs, motivations behind their actions, and Happy’s appearance as one of the primary members of the cast. The story is set in a universe fragmented into smaller variations called cosmoses, each of which is brimming with humans, aliens, and robots. The protagonist is Shiki Granbell, a human child who grows up in the theme park planet Granbell and later embarks on an incredible adventure to find the legendary goddess Mother, just like his adoptive grandfather, the robotic Demon King Ziggy, has done before him.

The first two episodes of ‘Edens Zero’ were screened online in advance on March 29, 2021. Here is everything you need to know about the pilot episode of the anime show.
