Inspired by a manga series, the anime is all set to release on OTT for Indian, Brazilian and Japanese audiences.
The Japanese anime series Edens Zero is finally slated for release in India. The OTT platform Netflix India has acquired rights to stream the show in the country. Edens Zero will be available to the Indian audiences from August 25.
Inspired by a manga series like most anime, Edens Zero revolves around the life of a protagonist named Shiki. Having grown up around machines, he finds himself hanging around a long-abandoned amusement park the Granbell Kingdom.
Shiki is usually in his own company till he meets two people just like him at the amusement park. An influencer named Rebecca Bluegarden visits the park with her cat Happy to make fun videos for their B-Cube (another name for YouTube) channel. The two find a friend in the socially awkward Shiki.
Rebecca and Happy set off on a journey to Sakura Cosmos with Shiki. The latter hopes to make new friends, after recalling the words by his late grandfather.
A zealous Rebecca sets off on the mission to make more interesting videos and finds the elusive goddess Mother who is often spoken about but never seen. Shiki is enthralled and passionate to explore the boundless space with his new friends, which involves helping Rebecca with her mission too.
While 19 episodes of Edens Zero have been released in total, there is still no clarity on how many will Netflix India release at once. The Japanese science fantasy manga has nearly 13 chapters that are available for reading, the latest being Edens Zero 14, which was released in 2021 itself.
While the manga is penned by Hiro Mashima, the anime is helmed by Shinji Ishihira. Yuushi Suzuki steps in as the co-director of the show. Edens Zero as an anime will not be available only to Indian audiences but also to people in Brazil and of course, Japan.
