Edens Zero series creator Hiro Mashima has really gotten under fans’ skins with one surprising new look for Rebecca Bluegarden in some scary new art! Mashima’s newest serialization is quickly getting closer to its 200th chapter milestone, and while Mashima has a ton of work on his plate with this series and the official Fairy Tail sequel manga (which is getting its own anime adaptation soon), the creator often finds the time to share some fun new looks at each of his favorite characters. This has been especially true lately as he’s been making his way through the main Edens Zero crew in fun new sketches.
Previous sketches shared recently have given new looks to Homura Kogetsu, Sister Ivry, Hermit Mio, and more. As fans have seen over the course of the series, makeovers are pretty much built into the DNA of the series as a whole, and that continues with each new sketch Hiro Mashima shares for Edens Zero‘s characters. This is the case with his latest new look at Rebecca, but alongside the usually cute offering, Mashima has thrown fans for a loop by imagining a much darker and more horrifying look at the heroine as well.

Rebecca will be making her return along with the rest of the Edens Zero crew (hopefully just not as creepy looking as she is here) in the upcoming second season of the series now in the works. There have yet to be any concrete details revealed for the new season such as potential returning staff and cast, studio, and potential release date as of this writing, but that also means plenty of time left to catch up. You can find the Edens Zero manga’s newest chapters released each week with Crunchyroll, and the 25 episode first season is now streaming with Netflix, and they tease the series as such:
“It is the year X492, an age in which people freely travel through the universe. Rebecca, a video-creating B-Cuber, visits the robotic world of Granbell and meets a young man with special powers: Shiki, who’s lived his entire life among machines. Soon Shiki is exploring the cosmos with Rebecca, encountering new places, people and things, and making friends along the way.”
