In the fall of 2020, it was confirmed that Hiro Mashima’s Edens Zero manga will be adapted into an anime. Hiro Mashima is also the author of the popular anime and manga, Fairy Tail. Since Fairy Tail ended, fans of Hiro Mashima have been waiting for the anime adaptation of his latest work.
Edens Zero is an adventure fantasy and science fiction manga written and illustrated by Hiro Mashima. Hiro Mashima (Fairy Tail, Rave Master) first launched the manga in Weekly Shōnen Magazine in June 2018. Kodansha published the manga’s 11th compiled book volume on August 17.
Even though we already knew Edens Zero will be making its debut sometime in April 2021, the specific date was unknown and only a few other details had been confirmed until, recently, Kodansha released a teaser video to promote the TV anime series.
