After four long months of waiting, it’s almost time for the hit anime series ‘Edens Zero’ to release for streaming around the world!
Aside from the fifth season of My Hero Academia, no other anime series premiering on the Spring slate had as much excitement and expectation as Edens Zero.
Adapting the critically acclaimed manga of the same name, the series has experienced some serious hype ever since the anime adaptation was announced in June 2020.
The series debuted in early April in Japan, but how and when can viewers around the world watch the anime?
How to watch Edens Zero…
The Edens Zero anime series is still currently airing new episodes on Nippon TV in Japan and will be available to stream internationally through Netflix.
Netflix officially acquired the broadcasting rights to Edens Zero back in March, so don’t expect the series to be made available on platforms such as Funimation or Crunchyroll.
The series is also available through the Japanese version of Hulu.
Edens Zero: Netflix release date and time…
- The Edens Zero anime series will release worldwide via the Netflix streaming service at 12 AM PDT on Thursday, August 26th.
The series premiered in Japan on April 11th and is still airing weekly episodes 12:55 AM local time each Sunday.
On June 10th, Netflix officially confirmed that the series would broadcast on August 26th.
The series is expected to launch at the following times around the world:
- Pacific Time: 12 AM PDT
- Central Time: 2 AM CDT
- Eastern Time: 3 AM EDT
- British Time: 8 AM BST
- European Time: 9 AM CEST
- India Time: 12: 30 PM IST
- Philippine Time: 3 PM PHT
- Australia Time: 4: 30 PM ACST
How many episodes are in season 1?
Technically, Edens Zero season 1 will consist of 25 episodes, but HITC does not predict that the entire 25-episode run will be released on Netflix on August 26th.
This is because the series is still airing episodes on Japanese television which, at the time of writing, is up to episode 20.
Netflix will likely release 12 or 13 episodes on August 26th and label this as ‘season 1’.
The streaming platform will then likely release ‘season 2’, i.e. the remaining 12 or 13 episodes in a few months after the Japanese broadcast has concluded.
