There is no connection as Mashima has said that Rave, FT and EZ are in different universes.

There is absolutely no relation to any of Mashima’s works. Just that there is just similarities in the protagonists name...which is usually names of seasons but the actual story and setting is different. He might just add visually similar characters but they are all standalone.

Well no Fairy Tail and Edens Zero are complete different universes, they are two stories which go on their own... So no need to watch Fairy Tail before this since the plot is not related.
But on the other hand, Mashima makes a LOT of references to his own previous works so yeah you basically have many elements of Rave and FT in Edens Zero, but see it as an auto-reference, a Mashima-verse, like the Trigger-verse in some way.

Yeah, this is its own series. You don't need to have even heard of Fairy Tail to get into this.

Dont worry, Edens Zero is not a sequel or even spin-off of Fairy Tail.

Its just the creator of this series just kind of lazy. He basically only changing the name character and setting of story. The story is kind of good but you kind of DISTURBED if you already see Fairy Tail because of the same character design and terminology.

Like REALLY, many of the people dislike it not because the story but he just giving too many REFERENCE from his previous series so it felt like he only copying (or plagiating it, i dont know the right word to be honest) without having any of creative idea to his new series.

Hiro Mashima is considered one of the most hardworking manga artists. He draws faster and more than many other authors. He is by no means lazy.
I advise you to find and read about the Osamu Tezuka's Star System. Hiro Mashima uses this system, as he has talked about many times.

First of all, it's called Fairy Tail, NOT Fairy Tale. It's something different like everyone said. I personally would've preferred more of the same universe, tbh, such use the Hundred Year Quest, more Zero, Sabretooth and so on, but I'm curious to see this, as the title is not as NPC as Rave lol

You cannot commit plagiarism of yourself. It goes without saying lol There's nothing wrong with picturing the same characters being different in different universes. If you don't like, don't watch.

If you were talking about setting and story, i aggree about it. I already mention it lol. I am not talking about his laziness in his drawing, just the some character design and name technique (like Meteor and Grand Chariot), heck even the movement and gesture is exactly the same. It just felt wrong if you just call it reference.

I just give you my opinion so dont get angry lol. I just read it because the story kind of interesting, but still it make me felt weird watching it. Same feeling like when you see Scarlet Johanson in ghost in the shell. Different movie, but both film felt like same black widow from marvel movie, not different character.

I understand what you mean. I'm just used to people talking about plagiarism without understanding what it means. Literal websites with references all over each page and bibliographies at the end of each page, and people still commenting about "plagiarised material" lol

well basically
the author of fairy tail , rave master , edens zero are the same
so you might find similarities in character designs
but still fairy tail is worth a try

Don't state wrong information.
Of course it's plagiarism to copy even if it's your own work. In writing, as long as the previous work is already published, you gotta credit the sources even if that implies crediting yourself.
I'm not saying the author did it. But if he's called for it, he better acknowledge that he reused his ideas.

Not really, no. The IP belongs to him.

Crediting oneself in the academic environment is only useful to help people expand on the subject, not a matter of plagiarism. You cannot steal from yourself. It does not make any sense.

If you think you'd need to watch Death Note before watching Bakuman..
Irony aside, @Ciezul, you created a thread title with a question and a poll with the opposite question, that's why the results are messed up.

For future watchers that come to this thread and are in confusion :
Faity Tail and Edens Zero are NOT related

It's just Hiro Mashima's way of designing his manga. It's an actual thing called 'Osamu Tezuka's Star System' that refers to recurring characters with differences to personality, design, and setting. It's actually a Hollywood practice as well called 'star system', where the film director uses the same actors on multiple movies. The only ones that are straight up part of this practice are Happy and Plue, while the rest look similar but have different names.

Some might consider this lazy, but to be honest, Edens Zero has enough aesthetic colour and difference to its characters that you barely even realize it when you read it enough.

No. Same creator. It's more obvious it is thought because Mashima can really draw only one character design

You could try reading the manga to see that the characters are also quite different.

the only thing I noticed (I didn’t watch much of FT) was the kitten whose name I forgot. I found the identical animal among the anime

YES! you can watch this without watching Fairytail, same goes for Fairytail, you can watch it without having to watch rave master. Mahima will tend to use similar character designs so you might remind this and that characters from his prvious works. But the story, plot and setting are comepletely different from each other so you don't have to watch his previous works.

weird because I´ve read the whole Fairy Tale manga. all chapters and spinnoffs. And tbh it´s not really good, the last quarter was trash - so why would I read another manga of the same author which characters look exactly the same.
I never said they have the same personality but you can´t deny they look exactly the same. Shiki is Natsu, Rebecca is Lucy, Elsie is Erza.... etc

Its just the mangaka being genius. With absolute minimum effort, he shits out a "not fairy tail" series and prints money. I respect Hiro Mashima. It takes around 3 days to draw a chapter and he is done lmao.

No, but it feels like a fairy tail 2.0 with a different theme.

I personally dont like this "star system" thing, seems to me that the author is lazy for repeating character design all the time, but it might be your thing.

They are not related. I don't read Eden Zero, but the character design is similar to Fairy Tail. They are like doppelganger of Fairy Tail character, but I think that's a artistic choice. Like Sakura of Cardcaptor Sakura appear in other CLAMP works.

Fairy Tail has nothing to do with Edens Zero.

Then you look at the characters and you think to yourself "have I ever seen those faces before?"

I ain't hatin' here and I've seen multiple products coming from the same source but it is a little tiny bit over the fuckin' top here. All i'm sayin'.
