Rebecca Bluegarden: Mikako Komatsu (Hai to Gensou no Grimgar)
The girl who works as a "B-Cuber," an online video streamer. Her videos are badly rated and viewer count is sluggish. She is an adventurer registered in the guild but was rather reclusive up until recently, playing video games at home. While her online rank is low, she boasts high shooting skills because of her excellent kinetic visual acuity acquired through these games. If you give her a gun, she will easily decide things with a headshot.

Happy: Rie Kugimiya (ēlDLIVE)
Rebecca's friend, her partner cat. Lost its life when Rebecca was very young but with the help of Professor Weisz was completely mechanized and revived as an android. Is a B-Cuber together with Rebecca on their "Aoneko Channel." Can also transform into the "Happy Blaster."

Edens Zero adapts Hiro Mashima's adventure fantasy manga, which he began serializing in Weekly Shounen Magazine in June 2018. Kodansha published the 11th volume on August 17, with the 12th volume planned for release on October 16.

Kodansha Comics licensed the manga in English and simulpublishes it with the Japanese release on Crunchyroll Manga, ComiXology, and Kindle. The ninth volume went on sale on September 15.

Lol using eidlive as Kugimiya Rie's example voice acting. How about just using Happy from Fairy Tail instead. Those who don't follow Mashima Hiro's works will find it interesting to have the voice actor dubbing the same character name with identical figure. With this, they may interest to watch this anime Eden Zero and it predecessor, the masterpiece Fairy Tail.

Wtf Happy what're you doin there!

Looks like future/modern Fairy Tail but set in space, that looks like space ship or boat. Hiro Mashima is really inspired from Oda and his One Piece. Let's hope this Mashima work, shows for the final time a grandiose adventure like One Piece.

I love the guy doing the music for this series, so there is that.

For those who are still snubbing this series, it's not very different than Fairy Tail, but it is better:

The world (universe) is quite vast and eccentric
The series has a darker tone than FT
It has fewer characters but they are more lovable
Superpowers have a better concept than simple magic
The protagonist is all the time in search of his main objective
The author said he had the series planned from start to finish

PS: The voice actors are perfect !!

If satomi sato and tomoaki maeno join this cast, it will be husband wife reunion and rie kugimiya will shock after she know that they're married in real life

Pass. Easy.

After the disappointments who were Bleach and Fairy Tail, I sweared to never again read a long running battle shounen.

Why waste time reading something with 300+ chapters who can turn bad (and likely will...) when you can read multiple sm0l mangas who stay consistent on his themes and charc development?

And I have the fellings this is gonna be Boruto level of milking nostalgia, with lowest possible effort.




It seems like your just reading the wrong long running Shonen



Nah, aside from HiatusXHiatus, Samurai Troopers, Yu Yu Hakusho and FMAB, they all either started good and got bad, or just are kinda bad from the begining.

J.C. Staff has actually done some great work. They've done well with To Aru spin offs, the animation for Is It Wrong to Pick up Girls in a dungeon is good, the konosuba movie looked good, Nobari no ou looked good,
WIXOSS
Heavy Object
Toradora
Golden Time
Shakugan no Shana
Ano natsu de matteru
Amanchu
Bakumon
Children of the whales
Their animation has never been amazing, but it's only ever been bad when the studio is rushed or lacking in budget

The fact I don't even know what most of those are, in addition to the ones I do know (bar KonoSuba) are anime I don't even like, your point is moot to me.


In that case, you could look into them. They're all on MAL and they're all readily available.

I was excited about this because I liked the manga, but then I read JC Staff and all my hype died.

Shiki and Shintaro (kagepro) have the same voice actor--- I definitely didn't expect that! At first, I couldn't imagine it in my head, but the more I think about it the more it fits!

And Rebecca's voice! I didn't remember her voice from the other shows I watched, but I looked it up and it fits so well! I honestly love it so much!

Maybe they could have chosen someone else for Happy, but oh well, I'm really excited to hear them. x)

Why does this look like Fairy Tail? Like I get the whole "same face syndrome" thing but blondie looks exactly the same as Lucy. Not almost the same....EXACTLY the same.
and the other character is Gray as kid.

Finally our so long awaited ship has been finally sailed. Alleluia!

Rie Kyugumiya voicing Happy, AGAIN. Star of the J.C Staff for a reason.

Sep 27, 1:56 AM by 28012001

I guess I'll watch it to pass time. Dropped the manga cause the plot of different planets really didn't interest me.

Everyone talking about same face syndrome, Hiro Mashima has the severe “same face syndrome” it's not surprising to me.

Couldn't stop my laugh after seeing JC Staff but then again I don't really care, this one wouldn't leave that kind of impact like how Fairy Tail left. To me it's just gonna be a long running anime on the side.

Would have been better if they just adapted the Fairy Tail 100 year quest. Would enjoy it just for the nostalgia.

I'm happy that Komatsu Mikako will be voicing Rebecca. Will watch it only to hear her cute voice.

Is Happy the same character as the one from Fairy Tail or the author just was lazy?
In this happy is a robot. It came from the planet named similar to what their species is called in fairytail, at least thats what I remember from the manga.

Sep 26, 9:56 PM by Johnrupesh

I read the manga when it started and it is an ok series. However, I think we are too old for shounen now. Not excited for this anime at all.

Sep 26, 9:54 PM by Johnrupesh

Happy? What the fuck? Like how Plue came from Rave Master to Fairy Tail? Holy shit. I'm guessing they're somehow a different character, like Fairy Tail Plue is as well. :/
