Who will direct EDENS ZERO S2?

Fans of the series may be rightly wondering who will direct the upcoming EDENS ZERO Season 2. The question is more than just rhetorical; the EDENS ZERO S1 director Yūshi Suzuki passed away on September 9, 2021!

Season 1 was produced by J.C. Staff (Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?), directed by Yūshi Suzuki, and chief directed by Shinji Ishihira (Fairy Tail). Mitsutaka Hirota (Rent-a-Girlfriend) was handling the scripts and series composition while Yurika Sako (Date a Live) was in charge of character design.

Yoshihisa Hirano (Death Note) composed the soundtrack.

For the first cour of the EDENS ZERO Season 1, the OP song “Eden Through the Rough” was performed by Takanori Nishikawa; the ED song “A Vlog of the Journey” (Bouken no Vlog) was performed by CHiCO & HoneyWorks.

For the second cour, the OP song “FOREVER” was performed by L’Arc-en-Ciel, while the ED song “Secret of the World” (Sekai no Himitsu) was performed by Sanketsu-girl Sayuri.

The EDENS ZERO Season 2 OP and ED songs haven’t been announced yet.

As for the EDENS ZERO Season 1, it premiered in Japan in April 2021 in Japan, with Hulu and Netflix Japan simulcasting the series. The first cour (12 episodes) was released on Netflix in August and the second (13 episodes) — in November 2021.

With the passing of director Suzuki, EDENS ZERO S1 went through a number of trials and tribulations but eventually managed to pull off.

EDENS ZERO S2 will continue the journey of Shiki Granbell, Rebecca Bluegarden, and Happy the Cat in their search for Mother, the fabled goddess of the cosmos.
