Edens Zero (Japanese: エデンズ ゼロ, Hepburn: Edenzu Zero) is a Japanese science fiction manga series written and illustrated by Hiro Mashima. It has been serialized in Kodansha's Weekly Shōnen Magazine since June 27, 2018, with its chapters collected into six tankōbon volumes as of September 17, 2019. The story follows the interstellar adventures of Shiki Granbell, a boy with gravity powers who uses the titular starship to search for the fabled cosmic goddess "Mother". The manga is published digitally in six other languages as they are released in Japan, with Kodansha USA licensing the series for English publication in North America on Crunchyroll, Comixology, and Amazon Kindle.

Synopsis[edit]

Setting[edit]

Edens Zero takes place in a fictional spacefaring universe inhabited by humans, aliens, and sentient robots. The universe is divided into smaller "cosmoses", with the Sakura Cosmos[Jp. 1] serving as the primary setting. Most planets and locations have futuristic elements, some of which are combined with classic fantasy.[3] All technology in the series runs on a magical power source called Ether, which forms the basis of the story's "fantasy" aspect;[4] one recurring device is the B-Cube,[Jp. 2] a video recorder that allows content creators, called "B-Cubers", to access a same-named video sharing website based on YouTube.[5][6] Ether also causes a variety of planetary phenomena such as airborne rivers of water,[5][7] clouds that produce crystal pillars,[8] and gargantuan trees visible from space.[9] Several characters directly harness Ether with Ether Gear,[Jp. 3] a power from the universe's "Dark Ages" that grants its users superhuman abilities.[3] The universe is also home to various cosmic entities, such as cybernetic dragons that swarm in a sector bordering the Sakura Cosmos called Dragonfall,[10] and a Chronophage[Jp. 4] that devours planets and permanently rewinds their time, creating alternate histories without causing time paradoxes.[11][12]

Plot[edit]

Shiki Granbell is a human Ether Gear user who is adopted and raised by robots on the planet Granbell, a deserted theme park world in the Sakura Cosmos. One day, the park is visited by two space traveling B-Cubers – Rebecca and her cybernetic cat companion Happy – whom Shiki befriends while they are there recording videos for their online account, Aoneko Channel. After the park's robots force them off the planet to save Shiki from being stranded before their batteries die, Shiki joins Rebecca and Happy's adventurers guild to explore the universe by searching for Mother, the fabled goddess of the cosmos. In the process, he obtains the Edens Zero, an interstellar warship previously used by his adoptive grandfather, the "Demon King" Ziggy, during another such failed search.

Characters[edit]

Main[edit]

Shiki Granbell (シキ・グランベル, Shiki Guranberu)

Shiki is the sole human denizen of the robot-inhabited planet Granbell, which Rebecca derives his surname from. He is found as an infant by the Edens Zero crew during Ziggy's failed voyage to find Mother, which leads Ziggy to raise him as a grandson. Shiki inherits Ziggy's Gravity Ether Gear at childhood, allowing him to change the strength and direction of gravity for himself and others to a certain degree. Due to his lifetime without human contact in Granbell's fantasy theme park, the Granbell Kingdom, Shiki is socially awkward around other humans and obsessed with fantasy, and he suffers from a paralyzing fear of bugs. Shiki becomes motivated to find Mother partly out of a desire to make as many new friends as possible, and partly to fulfill Ziggy's dream upon discovering his failure.

Rebecca (レベッカ, Rebekka)

Rebecca is a B-Cuber and member of Shooting Starlight from the planet Blue Garden who travels to record videos of other planets. She aims to amass one million subscribers for her and Happy's shared account, Aoneko Channel, which suffers from low viewership due to poor-quality content. After befriending Shiki, she joins him on his search for Mother to attract viewers by recording evidence of the goddess's existence. Ordinarily a cheerful girl, Rebecca becomes aggressive and ends her sentences with the particle zeyo (ぜよ) when angered or flustered; in the English version, she uses the word "ducky" instead. She is also a skilled marksman, and is the owner and pilot of the Aqua Wing, a spaceship that doubles as a seaboat, until she forfeits the ship to Weisz's younger self. After repeatedly bathing in the Edens Zero's spa, Rebecca develops her own Ether Gear called Leaper, which enhances her jumping skill and agility, and allows her to rewind time.

Happy (ハッピー, Happī)

Happy is a blue alien cat android from the planet Excede, based on the character of the same name from Mashima's previous series, Fairy Tail. He is originally found by Rebecca as an organic creature before suffering a near-fatal roadside accident during her childhood, which leads Professor Weisz to save him by transferring Happy's mind into an advanced robotic body. As Rebecca's partner, Happy transforms himself into a pair of firearms called Happy Blasters, which Rebecca uses to fire non-lethal rounds of Ether bullets.

Weisz Steiner (ワイズ・シュタイナー, Waizu Shutainā)

Weisz is a man from the planet Norma who uses a form of Ether Gear called Machina Maker to instantaneously build and modify machines. Originally a greedy and lecherous thief in his youth, he grows into a respected professor later in life, and is responsible for rebuilding Happy as a robot for Rebecca, serving as their benefactor. Weisz's adolescent self is brought into the present after a Chronophage rewinds Norma's time by fifty years, while his present self escapes the planet before it is consumed, allowing both versions of Weisz to co-exist as separate people. As a result, the younger Weisz accompanies Shiki's crew to explore the future, while the older Weisz embarks on his own adventures.

E.M. Pino (EMピーノ, Ī Emu Pīno)

Pino is a miniature "anti-bot" android capable of creating an EMP that disables machinery and Ether Gear for short periods of time. She is built by Ziggy as a successor to the Four Shining Stars called the "Light of Edens", but has her memories of Ziggy erased by Weisz's former criminal gang. After Shiki saves her, she acknowledges him as her new master and joins his crew to have her memories restored, eventually gaining a desire to become human and share his experiences.

Homura Kōgetsu (ホムラ・コウゲツ)

Homura is a young swordswoman from Oedo, a planet styled after Edo-period Japan. She is trained by Valkyrie Yuna in the use of Soul Blade, a form of Ether Gear that produces a powered sword of solid Ether. She lacks a social filter due to being encouraged by Valkyrie to abandon her shy and quiet nature as a child, which results in her habitually voicing her thoughts and intentions at nearly all times. Homura joins the crew of the Edens Zero to search for Valkyrie following her disappearance five years prior, as well as to duel Shiki for inheriting the title of "Demon King" from Ziggy, Valkyrie's undefeated rival.

Supporting[edit]

Shooting Starlight

Shooting Starlight[Jp. 5] is an adventurers' guild on planet Blue Garden, led by its seldom seen guild master, Noah Glenfield (ノア・グレンフィールド, Noa Gurenfīrudo). Shiki, Rebecca, and Happy are members of the guild, where they receive passports to travel to other planets. The receptionist, Clarisse Layer (クラリス・レイヤー, Kurarisu Reiyā), is a sensitive young woman and one of the few members to be on friendly terms with Shiki's group. Another of its members, Labilia Christy (ラビリア・クリスティ, Rabiria Kurisuti), is a famous B-Cube personality who has an antagonistic relationship with Rebecca. Labilia becomes fascinated with Shiki's gravity powers after he humiliates her for bullying Rebecca, and intends to make him the focus of one of her videos.

Cosmic government

The cosmic government is the ruling power of the Sakura Cosmos. Its military force is the Interstellar Union Army,[Jp. 6] which includes Justice (ジャスティス, Jasutisu), an officer obsessed with capturing the space pirate Elsie Crimson; his colleagues Victory (ビクトリー, Bikutorī) and Creed (クリード, Kurīdo); and their commanding officer, Jaguar (ジャガー, Jagā). The government also employs Amira (アミラ), a spy from the Galactic Intelligence Agency[Jp. 7] (GIA) who is capable of shapeshifting and copying people's memories to disguise herself, and her subordinate Jesse (ジェシー, Jeshī), a mole within Elsie's crew. Mashima modeled Justice's design after the character Sieg Hart from Rave Master, following a "tradition" of using such characters in his works.[13]

Four Shining Stars

The Demon King's Four Shining Stars[Jp. 8] are a group of female androids built by Ziggy to serve aboard the Edens Zero, with each member being connected to one of the ship's core functions. The group disbands upon Ziggy's retirement, with Shiki traveling the Sakura Cosmos to reassemble them in order to enable the ship's travel into the outer regions of space.

  • Witch (ウィッチ, Witchi), the only member to remain aboard the Edens Zero before its delivery to Shiki, is a masked woman who serves as the "Shield of Edens", tasked with defending and maintaining the ship. She also provides massages to crew members among other services, and is completely obedient to Shiki's orders, including those he does not make seriously.
  • Sister Ivry (シスター・イヴリィ, Shisutā Ivurii), the "Life of Edens", is a nun with the power to heal wounds and repair "living" machines. She has a crass and masculine demeanor, and speaks with the male pronoun ore. Before rejoining the crew, she is held captive on the lawless planet Guilst and impersonated by a robotic mercenary leader for ten years. Sister is accompanied by an obese android "minion" named Mosco (モスコ, Mosuko), who serves as the ship's caretaker and has a mysterious button on his navel that she forbids anyone from pressing.
  • Hermit (ハーミット, Hāmitto), the "Mind of Edens", is a programmer with the appearance of a young girl who manages the ship's security systems. She is inherently friendly and helpful towards humans, but fifteen years before meeting Shiki's crew, she becomes disillusioned after being cruelly experimented on by human scientists who manipulated her into helping them destroy a planet of robots. As a result, she isolates herself within the virtual planet Digitalis until Shiki's crew gains her trust and befriends her.
  • Valkyrie Yuna (ヴァルキリー・ユナ, Varukirī Yuna) is the "Sword of Edens" and Homura's mentor, who disappears five years prior to the events of the series to reunite Homura with her long-lost biological mother, Kurenai. Upon the Edens Zero crew's arrival on the planet Sun Jewel, Valkyrie's last sighted appearance, she is discovered to have been dead for three years after being betrayed by Kurenai and breaking down while fighting a horde of alien monsters to protect the planet's slave workers.

Others[edit]

  • Ziggy (ジギー, Jigī), also known as the Demon King,[Jp. 9] is a benevolent robot, the retired ruler of the Sakura Cosmos, and the adoptive grandfather of Shiki, whom he finds as an infant during a failed search for Mother. He breaks down during Shiki's childhood after teaching his Gravity Ether Gear ability to him, leaving the Edens Zero as Shiki's inheritance.
  • Mother (マザー, Mazā) is a planet-sized woman who exists beyond the Sakura Cosmos, where she is regarded as a mythical goddess. She is the subject of countless failed search efforts made by space explorers, with Shiki determined to be the first to verify her existence.
  • Elsie Crimson (エルシー・クリムゾン, Erushī Kurimuzon) is an armored space pirate who is notorious for conquering the universe's seven "cosmic seas". She delivers the Edens Zero to Shiki out of debt to Ziggy, using the transformed ship as a storage vessel called the Skull Fairy in the meantime.
  • Xiaomei (シャオメイ, Shaomei) is an omniscient girl who serves as the series' narrator and Greek chorus by breaking the fourth wall.
  • Drakken Joe (ドラッケン・ジョー, Dorakken Jō) is a member of the Oración Seis Galáctica,[Jp. 10] a group of six powerful warriors who are each capable of destroying an entire planet.

Production[edit]

Following the conclusion of his series Fairy Tail on July 26, 2017, Hiro Mashima posted a Tweet on December 31, 2017 promising to start a new series sometime in 2018.[14] After his visit to the Angoulême International Comics Festival in France, Mashima revealed that the new series would be "a new form of fantasy", and that the character Plue from his earlier series Rave Master would appear in the manga.[1] On May 14, 2018, Mashima commented on Twitter that he was becoming "a little confused" due to working simultaneously on this series, a Fairy Tail continuation, and another "secret" project. He also stated that he was coming up with new ideas for the series "one after another".[15] On May 30, 2018, Weekly Shōnen Magazine revealed that the series was tentatively titled Eden's Zero.[16]

Media[edit]

Shiki fights back and saves Rebecca using his Gravity Ether Gear ability, earning her friendship. After Rebecca and Happy take Shiki off the planet on their spaceship, the Aqua Wing, the robots express satisfaction over Shiki's escape before breaking down, having staged their rebellion to save him from being marooned. The three arrive at the planet Blue Garden and register Shiki into the adventurers guild Shooting Starlight, where Shiki recognizes a hologram of a cosmic goddess called Mother. When the guild disbelieves his supposed encounter with Mother, the three decide to find her and prove her existence, traveling to the planet Norma to acquire a more spaceworthy ship from Rebecca and Happy's benefactor, Professor Weisz Steiner. Upon visiting Weisz's laboratory, they are confronted by a stranger who introduces himself with the professor's name.

Deciding to take the Skull Fairy for themselves, the group eliminates the alien parasites mimicking Elsie and her crew.
