Hiro Mashima followed up one of the best Shonen anime series, Fairy Tail, with another one, Edens Zero. After a successful first season, Edens Zero season 2 has been officially announced. The anime’s source material is Hiro Mashima’s manga of the same name as the anime.
The manga was first published in June 2018 by Weekly Shonen Magazine and Kodansha Comics has the rights to publish it in both print and digital formats in English. Mashima san’s third project, after Rave Master and Fairy Tail, is Edens Zero.
Edens Zero, with its sci-fi and space themes, is very similar to his previous projects. The first season was a big hit on Netflix, with a 7.31 from over 74,000 viewers. Many stories and secrets have yet to be revealed, so fans have been looking forward to the second season.
When does Edens Zero season 2 come out?
The second season of Edens Zero will be released in April 2023, but the exact date of the first episode is still unknown. That’s the plan for Japan, but for people outside of Japan, the show might just come out August 2023.
This would be in line with the first season of the fantasy show, which premiered in Japan in April 2021 and came to the rest of the world via streaming service Netflix four months later.
What could be the plot of the second season of Edens Zero?
In Season 2 of Edens Zero, Shiki Granbell, Rebecca Bluegarden and Happy the Cat will continue their search for Mother, a legendary goddess known only as Mother.
As the fabric of space and time falls apart, war breaks out in the universeand the evil Edens One regime that threatens to destroy Mother, Shiki and the Edens Zero team will have their hands full with the anime villains in Season 2.
We don’t know all the details yet, but we can always look at the manga that inspired him. Season 1 went all the way up to the Sun Jewel arc in the manga. Season 2 starts with the Belial Gore Arc, which means the next episode will be based on manga chapter 69.
Cast and production
Reports say Kodansha will make the series, and Shinji Ishihira and Toshinori Watanabe will be in charge of it. The main voice actors from the first season return for the second season. It follows as:
- Takuma Terashima as Shiki
- Mikako Komatsu as Rebecca Bluegarden
- Rie Kugimiya as Lucky
- Shiori Izawa as EMPino
- Shiki Aoki as Homura Kougetsu
- Hiromichi Tezuka as Weisz Steiner
How many more seasons of Edens Zero can we expect?
As of this writing, 171 manga chapters have been released, that’s a little short of the 60 or more chapters we expect from each season. But the manga is still being written and dozens more chapters will be released by the end of the second season. This means that at least A third and fourth season can be expected from Edens Zero.
Where can I watch Season 2 of Edens Zero?
The first season of Eden Zeros was on Netflix in the US and UK, but the second season is likely to be on Disney Plus. With Japanese publishing houses Kodansha and Walt Disney Company closing a new long-term deal in late 2022, ownership of Edens Zero will now likely belong to the House of Mouse and its streaming platform.
