Mediatoon Secures Rights to Edens Zero Season Two


Mediatoon Distribution has acquired the worldwide rights to the upcoming second season of the NTV anime series Edens Zero.

From creator Hiro Mashima (Fairy Tail), the series sees Shiki and his friends travel through Sakura Cosmos seeking an entity who grants any wish for those who are brave enough to find her. It tackles subjects such as the endangerment of the environment, dependence on technology and the relationship between humans and robots.

The series is commissioned by NTV and produced by J.C. Staff. Season two will debut on NTV in Japan on April 2 and simulcast on ADN, a Paris-based SVOD platform.

“We are glad to strengthen our long-lasting partnership with Kodansha,” said Jérôme Alby, CEO of Mediatoon Distribution. “The acquisition of Edens Zero’s worldwide rights cements Mediatoon’s position as one of the world’s leading distributors and IP managers for star kids and anime shows.”
