It’s been almost a year since “Fairy Tail” manga series ended and broke the hearts of fans worldwide. However, if you were a fan of the manga series, then you’d be really happy to know the Hiro Mashima, the author of Fairy Tail, has been working on a new manga series called “Eden’s Zero” which is going to debut sooner than you think.
Fairy Tail was one of the most popular manga series of recent times that ran in Weekly Shonen Jump from August 2006 to July 2017 and sold well over 60 million copies worldwide. It even resulted in two seasons of anime series that was very well received and a third season is in the works that will be released later this year. So, considering that fans really enjoyed reading the magic-based manga series, the hopes are high for the upcoming manga from Hiro Mashima!
Eden’s Zero Manga Illustration Revealed
It’s really amazing to know that the author isn’t taking any long breaks as he’s back in action in just under one year. He’s also been helping out with the final season of the Fairy Tail anime series, while working on the new manga. Fans were hoping to see a glimpse or some illustrations of the characters, and thanks to Kodansha Comics, we’ve got just that for you.
The first look of the full cast of Eden’s Zero was released recently, featuring a slew of heroes as well as villains. You can check out the illustration below and if you’ve been a die-hard fan of his previous series, you are going to notice a lot of similarities in the character design.
The main character of the series looks like a blend of Natsu and Gray from Fairy Tail. He’s got the wide grin of Natsu and the black hair and impulsiveness of Gray. Moving on from that, we also see a blonde girl in the illustration who has a striking resemblance to Lucy Heartfilia and behind her is a girl with navy blue hair who looks like Juvia Lockster. The resemblances don’t end there as there’s another red-headed girl who could pass of as Erza Scarlet.
Plus, there are two other characters that you may realize instantly. They are the blue cat, who’s a Happy lookalike without the wings, and Plue, the little snowman!
So far, not much is known regarding the plot or the details about the characters, but we can assume that it will be different from the previous works of the author.
