Edens Zero Season 1 Anime

10+ Of The Most Worthy Anime Shows Like Edens Zero!

Edens Zero is an anime and manga by the same author as Fairy Tail. But it’s a spin-off series.

While it’s not a direct sequel to Fairy Tail, it does take design-inspiration from Fairy Tail.

In this world, space, the cosmos, bigger adventures, and lots of world building takes place. Not to mention magic, comedy, and all the good stuff the author is known for.

Let’s talk about comparable anime along those lines.


Anime Like Edens Zero:


1. Slayers

slayers anime

Slayers is an old school anime series at this point. The studio is J.C Staff. It was first released in the early 1990s.

There are around five seasons, 2 of which were made in the 2000s and beyond.

That all said, there’s a lot similar to Edens Zero.

A female lead protagonist called Lina Inverse, and a male protagonist (Gourry). A magic and swordsman duo.

Lina is officially one of the most powerful anime characters around. And the adventure aspect of this anime is a good transition for Edens Zero fans.


2. Gurren Lagann

Gurren Lagann starts with the main characters underground. They’ve lived this way for all their life.

With undying ambition and determination, they break out and reach the surface. And later, there’s a “space” aspect to this anime.

This is where I draw some of the comparisons to Edens Zero.

There aren’t many adventure series as good as Gurren Lagann, or as enjoyable and wacky. With some powerful life lessons and inspirational messages.

Great series.

3. The Legend Of The Legendary Heroes

The Legend Of The Legendary Heroes is also an anime that focuses on magic and adventures.

The setting is more old school compared to Edens Zero. And the anime, as shown in episode 1, is much more violent and savage.

The violence is comparable to Akame Ga Kill. And it’s continuous but not overbearing.

It’s still a good anime to start watching if you want something similar and right up the alley.


4. One Piece

One Piece needs no introduction. It’s recognized as one of the greatest adventure series of all time.

It also has good world-building aspects, just like Edens Zero (or even Fairy Tail).

Monkey D. Luffy is your typical hype, energetic protagonist. But he’s not like other shonen MCs.

He doesn’t jump in to save someone to be heroic. In fact, his motivations are unique, and that’s why he stands out.

5. Magi Series

Magi: Kingdom Of Magic & Labyrinth Of Magic is a good anime to start watching from Edens Zero. It’s about Aladdin, a prodigy kid, and his friends like Morgiana and Alibaba.

Morgiana, in particular, has a backstory comparable to Erza Scarlet.

There’s a satisfying amount of action, fight scenes, magic, and adventures, with the usual comedy to uplift it.

The anime isn’t mentioned much these days, but it’s not bad at all.


6. Fairy Tail

Fairy Tail is an obvious choice and had to be mentioned sooner or later. It’s the direct inspiration behind Edens Zero.

The designs are the most obvious aspect of Fairy Tail that connects it to Edens Zero.

Even though FT has made a name for itself and staked its claim, it’s an anime you either love or hate.

Either way, it has some of the best memorable characters. And everything that shonen brings to the table.

You HAVE to watch it if you started with Edens Zero first.


7. Black Clover

Black Clover gets a lot of hate, but also gets a LOT of love and appreciation. In this way, it’s just like Fairy Tail, but different.

It’s about Asta, the typical chipper protagonist in a shonen setting. One who shouts a lot.

The anime’s had a consistent story that’s been running since 2018.

Since it’s a good recommendation for its similarities to Fairy Tail, the same is true for Edens Zero as well.

It’s good to transition into.


8. Tensei Slime

tensei slime season 2

Tensei Slime is two seasons in now. The main character starts out as a slime and evolves to the point of being able to change shape.

Rimuru Tempest becomes a leader, the kind who strives for peace but will fight if he has to.

That draws people to him, and the anime builds heavily on this point.

The fantasy element and adventures make it a good recommendation for Edens Zero fans.


9. Soul Eater

Soul Eater has a female protagonist called Maka Albarn. She was one of the best female protagonists from the 2000s.

There’s also Black Star, who in some ways can be compared to Shiki from Edens Zero.

But he’s different.

In this world, it’s about meisters who wield weapons and slay demons to collect their eggs.

On the surface, it’s more like a Bleach type of vibe, but it does have lightweight relevance. Making it worth mentioning on this list.


10. Kono Subarashii


Kono Subarashii is a comedy/parody series. For the comedy and ridiculousness, it’s directly comparable to both Fairy Tail and Edens Zero.

You’ll get a good laugh out of it, and there’s a direct comparison with its fantasy, adventure, and magic elements.

Just like Edens Zero, the characters MAKE the anime. And how they interact with each other plays an important role in shaping the enjoyment.
