Into the Sky Where Cherry Blossoms Flutter is the first episode of Edens Zero.
Influencer Rebecca Bluegarden and her feline companion Happy arrive at the theme park Granbell Kingdom to shoot a video for their B-Cube channel. The park is completely staffed by robots, but Rebecca encounters a human boy named Shiki, who was apparently adopted by the Demon King, one of the park's robots who has since broken down. Shiki has never seen another human before and clumsily attempts to make friends with Rebecca, to little success.
Later, Rebecca is captured and tied to a stake by the bots. When Shiki arrives, the robots reveal that they have gained self-awareness and intend to kill Rebecca and steal her ship to escape from Granbell to stage a revolt against mankind. When Shiki attempts to reason with them, the bots turn against him and beat him up. When Rebecca cries at this betrayal, Shiki gains the will to fight back, remembering that the Demon King told him that a friend who sheds tears for him is someone who must be treasured. While Shiki fights the robots, Happy (who has been asleep this whole time despite being tied up next to Rebecca) wakes up and unties his companion. After Shiki defeats the robots' leader, he takes Rebecca and Happy and flees with them.
