‘Fairy Tail’ creator announces new anime series adaptation ‘Edens Zero’


Hiro Mashima, the creator of Fairy Tail, announced that an Edens Zero anime series adaptation is currently in the works.

Hiro Mashima’s Fairy Tail has been a major hit since its release in 2009. In 10 years, the title has already spawned its own anime series and a video game. After Mashima finished Fairy Tail, he started a brand new manga series entitled, Edens Zero.

Edens Zero, which was serialized in the pages of Kodansha’s Weekly Shonen Sunday, has become widely popular upon release. Furthermore, it has proven to be a worthy successor to the series that came before it.

As a result, the manga’s success paved the way for an anime series adaptation. Hiro Mashima announced on Twitter:

“A TV anime for Edens Zero has been approved! Be sure to check out the weekly magazine that will be published next week! More information will be announced soon, so please stay tuned.”

The news did not come as a surprise for some fans as Mashima already teased the big announcement. The creator previously penned:

“Next issue, there will be a serious announcement! Please look forward to it.”

As of press time, the producer’s identity of the anime remains uncertain. However, some devotees have their hopes on A-1 Production. The studio has overseen the shows inspired by Mashima’s manga, such as Fairy Tail.

More about Edens Zero

Hiro Mashima launched Edens Zero in Weekly Shōnen Magazine in June 2018. Kodansha Comics consequently published the manga’s ninth compiled book volume on April 17, 2020. The publication is also releasing the series simultaneously on its digital platform.

Kodansha Comics’ official synopsis of Edens Zero reads:

“At Granbell Kingdom, an abandoned amusement park, Shiki has lived his entire life among machines. But one day, Rebecca and her cat companion Happy appear at the park’s front gates. Little do these newcomers know that this is the first human contact Granbell has had in a hundred years. As Shiki stumbles his way into making new friends, his former neighbors stir at an opportunity for a robo-rebellion. And when his old homeland becomes too dangerous, Shiki must join Rebecca and Happy on their spaceship and escape into the boundless cosmos.”
