The official portal for the franchise based on the manga written and illustrated by Hiro Mashima, Edens Zero, announced the launch of its official channel “EDENS ZERO Channel” on YouTube to offer the latest information on the television anime and upcoming video games. The guests of its first thirteen-minute episode are Mikako Komatsu (Rebecca Bluegarden) and Shiki Aoki (Homura Kougetsu), who have worked together for the first time in this anime (however, due to the COVID-19 pandemic they’ve only met face-to-face once in a studio this year). The two shared many behind-the-scenes stories about the anime’s production, provided by the staff and voice cast members.
For example, Shiki confessed that Miyuki Sawashiro’s performance as Valkyrie was so wonderful that she cried a lot when she watched her rehearsal video. Before the actual voice recording session, she had to watch the video over and over, while she was crying, until she got used to it so she could focus on her own performance.
The series is on air in Japan and is confirmed with a total of twenty-five episodes. Furthermore, Mashima has been publishing the manga in Kodansha publisher’s Weekly Shonen Magazine since June 2018. The work is also inspiring two video games developed by Konami, with the first described as a 3D action role-playing game for consoles and the second as a role-playing game for smartphones.
Edens Zero Synopsis
All his life, Shiki has been surrounded by machines. In Granbell Kingdom, a long-abandoned amusement park, he’s the only one of his kind out there. That is, until Rebecca Bluegarden and her feline companion Happy arrive, unaware that they are Granbell’s first visitors in a hundred years. Their goal is to make funny videos for their B-Cube channel, but what they find is a friend in the socially awkward Shiki.
When Granbell becomes too dangerous for the three of them, they embark on an adventure through the Sakura Cosmos. They hope to make more interesting videos and even find the elusive Mother goddess, while Shiki wants to make more friends, prompted by the words of his late grandfather. Of course, the journey will not be easy, as no one has seen Mother before, but Shiki is determined to reach his goal and explore the limitless limits of space together with his new friends.
