“Edens Zero,” the shounen-fantasy anime sensation penned by the same author behind Fairy Tail, has just wrapped up its second season with a total of 25 episodes.
Fans are now buzzing with questions about the future of the series. Here’s the scoop on what we know so far.
Despite the unfortunate passing of the series’ director, the production team remained steadfast, successfully delivering a second season that resonated well with Shounen anime fans.
The series is centered around “Rebecca,” a teenage girl who loves to create videos. She visits the Granbell Kingdom and finds a single human living among robots.
His name is “Shiki,” and he can use superpowers known as “Ether Gear Powers.”
Shiki possesses magnetic powers, which intrigues Rebecca’s mind as she takes him alongside him.
Season 2 follows the story as a big war is about to occur. Shiki and his group train under the strongest fighters to prepare for the future.
The anime aired from April 11, 2023, to October 3, 2023, and was animated by the renowned studio J.C. Staff, known for works like “The Duke of Death and His Maid” and “The Sacrificial Princess and The King of Beasts.“
