Takanori Nishikawa graced the second season with the invigorating first opening theme song, “Never say Never.” Meanwhile, ASCA enchanted audiences with the poignant ending theme song, “Rinne” (Reincarnation Cycle).
The second season of Edens Zero debuted on April 1st, airing on NTV and its affiliated networks. For international fans, Crunchyroll continues to stream the anime as it airs, bringing the excitement worldwide.
In a significant move, Mediatoon Distribution from France secured the global distribution rights for the second season, highlighting the growing popularity of the series beyond Japan’s borders.
The initial season premiered in Japan back in April 2021, treating viewers to 25 thrilling episodes. International audiences were not left behind, as the show became available on Netflix outside of Japan in August 2021.
The talented team behind the first season deserves recognition, with Shinji Ishihara serving as the chief director at J.C. Staff and Yūshi Suzuki, an accomplished episode director for Fairy Tail season 3, helming the season. Sadly, Suzuki passed away on September 9, 2021, leaving behind an impressive legacy. Mitsutaka Hirota expertly oversaw and wrote the series scripts, while Yurika Sako, known for her exceptional key animation work in Food Wars! The Third Plate, brought the characters to life with her animation designs.
Hiro Mashima, the mastermind behind other notable series such as Fairy Tail and Rave Master, launched the Edens Zero manga in Weekly Shōnen Magazine in June 2018. Fans eagerly followed the story’s progression, thanks to Kodansha USA Publishing releasing the manga in English digitally and in print. The company describes the tale as follows:
“Shiki has spent his entire life surrounded by machines in Granbell Kingdom, an abandoned amusement park. However, everything changes when Rebecca and her feline companion Happy arrive at the park’s gates, marking the first human contact Granbell has seen in a century! As Shiki forges new friendships, the once dormant machines plot a rebellion. When his homeland becomes perilous, Shiki joins Rebecca and Happy aboard their spaceship, embarking on an extraordinary journey across the limitless cosmos.”
The manga’s popularity extends beyond the pages, inspiring the development of a 3D action RPG for consoles and a top-down RPG for mobile devices. Fans can anticipate Konami’s involvement in bringing these immersive gaming experiences to life.
