After the huge success of Fairy Tail, Hiro Mashima created Edens Zero. Edens Zero revolves around Shiki, a mysterious boy who has lived his entire life with robots.
Edens Zero is based on the manga of the same name. Hiro Mashima created Edens Zero manga in 2018 and as of 2021, 16 volumes are available. According to Myanimelist, there will be 25 episodes of Edens Zero, and a total of 19 episodes have aired so far. It’s not clear how many episodes will be available on Netflix and if the remaining episodes will be uploaded simultaneously on the day of the broadcast.
There have been many fans upset with Edens zero and called it a copy of Fairy Tail due to the similarities in the characters. Happy is a recurring character from the Fairy Tail universe and a companion of Rebecca, who seems like a look-alike of Lucy from Fairy Tail. The character Elsie Crimson looks very similar to Erza Scarlet from Fairy Tail. Edens Zero seems similar to Fairy Tail in terms of concept, and they also have a guild system. The only difference is Edens Zero is a space adventure Shonen anime.
