The highly-anticipated anime ‘Edens Zero’ will officially premiere this week in Japan, but what time will episode 1 air and how can fans around the world watch it?
Aside from the fifth season of My Hero Academia, no other anime series premiering on the Spring slate has as much excitement and expectation as Edens Zero.
Adapting the critically acclaimed manga of the same name, Edens Zero has experienced some serious hype ever since the anime adaptation was announced in June 2020.
The series is scheduled to premiere this week, but how can viewers watch Edens Zero and what date will episode 1 release?
Edens Zero episode 1: Release date and time
Edens Zero episode 1 is set to premiere on Nippon TV on Sunday, April 11th.
You may have seen some reviews floating around the internet already and this is because episodes 1 and 2 were streamed in advance of the series debut this weekend.
The first episode will premiere in Japan at 12:55 AM local time.
How to watch Edens Zero…
- Unfortunately, Edens Zero will only be available legally for Japanese viewers via channels such as Nippon TV, with Netflix not releasing the series until after its conclusion in Japan.
Netflix has officially purchased the broadcasting rights to Edens Zero, so don’t expect the series to be made available on platforms such as Funimation or Crunchyroll.
Unfortunately, as the Netflix release date remains unknown, it could be several months until Edens Zero arrives on the streaming giant.
Anime series typically debut on Netflix between three and seven months after their conclusion in Japan.
However, the episode listings have not yet been confirmed, so we have no information on when Edens Zero season 1 will finish its weekly broadcast in Japan.
At a very early prediction, Edens Zero may debut on Netflix in either late-Summer or Fall this year.
This article will be updated as soon as more information is revealed.
