Synopsis:

Eleven months after the grand finale of Fairy Tail, master mangaka Hiro Mashima is back with a great adventure beyond imagination! All the steadfast friendship, crazy fighting, and blue cats you've come to expect... IN SPACE!

A young boy gazes up at the sky and sees a streaming bolt of light. The friendly, armor-clad being at his side tells him gently, "That's a dragon." The fact that he's joking isn't important. What's important is the look of wonder on the boy's face... and the galaxy-spanning adventure that's about to take place! Join Hiro Mashima (Fairy Tail, Rave Master) once more as he takes to the stars for another thrilling saga!




Im glad we didn't have to wait long for Mashima's next work.

Chapter 1


Mashima did a great job on the first chapter as he gave us comedy, action and feels. I can't wait to see the adventures Shiki will go on as he travels the cosmos with Rebecca and Happy.

I gotta admit, I enjoyed a lot more that I expected, I went in with low expectations but it was actually a good read, specially the space twist off the story and the robots made me feel a little in the end, which was a really nice surprise, I'll continue reading it

Pretty standard set-up for a first chapter. So that plus reused character designs made the whole chapter pretty boring.

Space+Kingdom Hearts style worlds is interesting though. Hopefully that is used well.

I really liked the first chapter. The characters are familiar yet different and its refreshing. That makes it easier to get invested in the characters I just hope the Story holds up. So far so good Mashima!

i wish he would have went with a different theme...fairytail was all about friendship, but real friendship isn't that great... that combined with the exact same character designs for the main characters... feels like it's fairy tale 2.0, which would be great if i wasn't sick to death of fairy tale 1.0 after watching the entire show. he did mix it up a bit with the space and robots, but that's just a skin so far. i did like the emotions near the end though it was a bit tacked on.

Glad I wasn't the only one thinking that. When I first saw the cover my reaction was, "Lucy? Happy? Is that you?" I wouldn't have been surprised if someone told me this was a Fairy Tail spinoff. Considering Hiro Mashima's track record with fantasy manga, I think it'll be interesting to see what he brings to the sci-fi genre with this series.

I have real feels about this. The whole time I was like that's Happy, that's Erza, is that Wendy! Looking at the cover photo. But when I read it, and the cat was named happy, though the tip of his tail was black instead, and the name of the themepark sounding familiar,, it's definitely the same world/universe/galaxy just waaay in the future. There's no way it isn't. Not with the names, and faces. And I can't remember Lucy's little sister/doll's name, but wasn't it something like Rebecca when she was human?

I know we are getting a spin off of Fairy Tail too, but I feel like this is one too. It's what happens to the world later. It feels very Rave Master-y too. Ether-nanos gear huh? Shiiki seems a lot like Natsu, so are he and Rebecca very distant cousins, bc obvi Lucy and Natsu got together. OR is he the descendent of the baby Gajeel and Levy had at the end of Fairy Tail? He feels too much like Natsu to be from that line. And it looks like Happy and Charolette get together, for us to have a Happy so far in the future. Plus with the permanent extinction of the dragons, it makes sense for the later people to dream of them soaring as ships even in space.

Honestly I'm so happy, but so thrown. I don't think I'll be able to read this without reacting out loud, until my theory is proven.

It was kind of off putting with characters looking that similar to Fairy Tail. The opening story itself wasn't bad, but super open-ended.

I really enjoyed it and, like a lot of you, loved the space twist. I’m keen to know how Happy ended up with Rebecca or if it is the same Happy as Fairy Tail at all or just another Exceed with the same name.

I doubt its the same Happy from Fairy Tail or even an Exceed type as this cat had no wings.

Been seeing raw untranslated pages of the next chapter floating around twitter. I guess we'll see the translated version soon?

Chapter 2

The second chapter has Rebecca, Shiki and Happy getting to Blue Garden where Happy gets taken by someone planning to sell him. This chapter we get background info on Rebecca and Happy which turns out Rebecca grew up as a orphan. She was pretty much alone until she picked up Happy on the street and gave him his name. One day something horrible happens and we see that Happy is different compare to the Happy we know from FT. Once Shiki and Rebecca chased down the thief Rebecca shows her true colors for trying to take her friend and Happy transforms into a pair of guns that she uses to defeat the enemy. This pretty much reminds me of Elie from Rave as Rebecca's guns are based on Elie's tonfa blasters. At the end we are introduced to Erza's clone in this series Elcy Crimson a space pirate who's men call princess? Maybe she really is a princess?

Here are some posts worth sharing from /comics/manga/edens-zero/comments:

p0114rd: Mashima is not being lazy or uninspired in having characters resembling those from his previous works here. He has his actors/actresses and gives them new roles. Look up "Osamu Tezuka's Star System." It is a common tool of some mangaka.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Osamu_Tezuka%27s_Star_System

NinjaKirby1: It's not Fairy Tail in space, don't worry. It's entirely different worlds with entirely different lores and laws of physics. Go read Rave Master.
NinjaKirby1: TO THOSE WHO HAVEN'T READ RAVE MASTER: Don't complain about the characters looking like those from Fairy Tail. If you complain about that, then you must also complain about the number of Rave Master characters and references in Fairy Tail.

danny1593: The use of characters does not bother me. Think of it this way. You don't care if you see real life actors in a lot of different movies, for example, Dwayne Johnson. You won't go oh you look the same, please change your appearance. haha

Ventus5655: It might not be the Happy you know. Plue was a character from Mashima's previous work Rave Master. He was included in Fairy Tail ,but there's no telling if it's the same Plue or not. May be the same situation with the Happy in this.



I've never seen/read Fairy Tail or Rave Master, but coincidentally I was recently putting a Fairy Tail picture into a collage for a MAL club and thought "Hey, this Mashima guy designs really cute girls," so here I am. At first I was skeptical, and I kind of wish I'd counted how many times the word "friend" appeared in the first chapter alone, but I think I'm a fan now, I've been refreshing the simulpub page all day.

The end of chapter 1 made me think of Yamada in B Gata H Kei



Happily, Yamada only ends up with one partner for life. But hopefully Shiki will get closer to his goal.

Glad to see Mashima's artwork back again.

A lot of stuff come back like similar designs, friendship, Mashima's super horniness, and more.

If there is any complaint I have it would be maybe Mashima could spruce it up with his story/writing. Feels a bit too similar to his past works and I wouldn't mind some versatility.
