Do you guys remember Fairy Tale? The 2011 manga and anime series is so good that it makes you appreciate the genre as a whole. Well, being good comes with a price as its ending in 2016 caused a massive reaction among the fans back in the day, as they were demanding more. Thankfully, there is Edens Zero, which is created by the same name as Fairy Tale, Hiro Mashima, and shares multiple similar qualities. Now, it is time to talk about Edens Zero Season 2 Release Date.
Back in 2018, when Edens Zero manga was initially released, it received a largely positive reception as fans were already missing Fairy Tale’s unique vibes. Even its score on the Myanimelist is quite close to the score of the Fairy Tale, as the two have numbers 7 and 7.6, respectfully. However, the release of the anime series took a little bit longer.
The anime of Edens Zero premiered first in Japan, back in April 2021, and then came to Netflix in August 2021. Yes, we got to see the anime three long years after the airing of the manga. Still, the anime was great in its adaptation and fans started to ask for the Edens Zero Season 2 Release Date already.
In this article, we will inspect the time of the Edens Zero Season 2 Release Date. If you are an anime fan who is looking for brand new quality shows to binge-watch, this is the article for you!
Edens Zero Anime
We can categorize Edens Zero as a science fantasy series that follows the adventures of Shiki Granbell, a young boy on a voyage through various planets as he is looking for some kind of a goddess named “Mother”. The manga of the series has 16 chapters and has been translated into six languages other than Japanese so far. Apart from the anime of the series that was produced by J.C. Staff, Edens Zero also has a video game already, which is waiting to be released.
Edens Zero Season 2 Release Date
When it comes to predicting Edens Zero Season 2 Release Date, we are quite lucky since the production process of the anime moves quite fastly. In fact, the 2nd season of the series has already started to be aired in Japan, meaning that there is not much time left for Netflix to acquire the show and release it to us.
The 2nd season will have 24 episodes, meaning that after their premiere in Japan, each one of these episodes will need to be translated and dubbed, which is a process that might take time. Still, we don’t think it would take longer than 6 months to complete it, based on other anime production processes of Netflix. This means that we might get to welcome the Edens Zero Season 2 Release Date as of early 2022.
Why is Edens Zero similar to Fairy Tail?
Mashima does not have any announcements officially linking the two series to each other. However, there are obvious similarities between the two shows, making it impossible to not speculate whether they belong to the same universe or not.
Even though officially there is no such link, from characters to drawings and plot points, the two series share multiple commonalities. Especially the leads in the two shows are too similar to each other that even the fans are confusing which one was doing what. Nevertheless, this resemblance can be explained by the fact that both are written by the same man and that’s all.
Is Happy from Fairy Tail in Edens Zero
One of the characters that are speculated the most for being belonging to both universes was Happy. “Which Happy?” you might ask. Yes, you heard it right. Both Fairy Tale and Edens Zero have a character named Happy and naturally, fans question whether they are the same or not.
The fans are both right and wrong in coming up with such a conclusion. It is true that both Happy’s are the same. However, they are different versions of each other. We know that it sounds complicated at first. Let us explain: At the beginning of the Edens Zero, Rebecca gets to meet with Happy, the one we know from Fairy Tale. Shortly after this brief meeting, Happy gets killed and Rebecca brings him to Professor Weisz to bring him back to life. The professor transfers Happy’s mind to an android and creates the Happy of the Edens Zero. We hope this explanation clarifies the situation.
