Hiro Mashima is famous for reusing his character designs in his works, and has done so again in Edens Zero. Hiro Mashima started his manga career in 1999 with Master delusion, which lasted until 2005. Just a year later, it was serialized again with Fairy tale. Fairy tale it’s probably Mashima’s greatest creation yet. It has released weekly chapters continuously for over a decade and has even received an anime adaptation, spinoff series, movies, and even a PS4 game. Next year Fairy tale finished, Mashima returns again with a new title – Edens Zero. It already has more than a hundred chapters and an anime on the way.

Even during his Fairy tale days, Mashima has already repurposed some of her character designs from Master delusion. What stands out the most, however, is Plue, the bearer of the Rave Master stone in Master delusion and Lucy’s celestial spirit in Fairy tale. Since then, Plue has somehow become Mashima’s mascot in her works. Plue also makes an appearance in Edens Zero, although it does not have as important a role as in Fairy tale Y Master delusion. Like Fairy tale, Mashima has borrowed quite a few character designs for Edens Zero. Of course, some of them have been modified here and there. However, the similarity between them is amazing.
