Original Author Mashima Hiro
I’m looking forward to the battle scene involving Shiki’s gravity ability and Rebecca’s gun action. For the game, it would make me happy if both the original manga fans and also game fans can enjoy it.
As “EDEN ZERO” will be having video media, which are the anime and game, I hope that you will be looking forward to it.
Anime’s General Director Ishihira Shinji
After handling “FAIRY TAIL”, I will be the general director for this work as well. This is the first time I felt this tremendous pressure (haha)
This time, I am studying various thing to make the gravity actions as real as possible so this is a worthy challenge for me. In the case of using gravity to fly, I believe it would be better to express it as falling instead of flying. While brainstorming with my partner, director Suzuki, we are also thinking about making some good changes based on “FAIRY TAIL”. As the original manga is a level higher than “FAIRY TAIL”, so I wanted the anime to be a level higher as well.
While we are reading between the lines of the original manga, I want to draw out the amazingness of a science fiction work. Despite feeling a tremendous pressure, I felt that this is something worthy for me. Do look forward to it
