What is Made in Abyss About?
The adventure dark-fantasy series begins from the chasm called the Abyss – a system of pits and caves that host the most wondrous and intriguing creatures of the world. The descent of the abyss deep into the earth also means it holds remains of old civilizations and all that excites Cave Raiders. The abyss is not free from danger and ominous presences that lurk in the shadows.
Those who return after Diving into it to excavate and bring things back often face the Curse of the Abyss, a non-corporeal form that unleashes misfortune based on the kind of dive that is made into the Abyss. The story focuses on the Belchero Orphanage in Orth which hosts a young girl named Riko. She loses her mother under mysterious circumstances. Riko’s mother Lyza was a skilled cave diver, given the title of a White Whistle. Riko aspires to achieve the same title and sets out to become a diver.
She meets a robot that resembles and boy and names him Reg. Choosing to bring him back to the orphanage makes him a part of their cosy little group. Riko takes Reg along with her for a secret expedition into the Abyss, the outcome of which seems to be riddled with a lot of dangers.
The anime series by Kinema Citrus is licensed by Sentai Filmworks for distribution in other regions! The key visuals for Made in Abyss Season 2 have already been released!
Made in Abyss Season 2 Plot
Made in Abyss Season 2 has officially been titled “Made in Abyss: The Golden City of the Scorching Sun”. Made in Abyss has one season of an anime adaptation that has lasted 13 episodes along with 3 movies after that. Made in Abyss Season 2 is expected to pick up after Movie 3: Dawn of the Deep Soul.
The manga for the series currently has 62 chapters, the latest of which was released in January 2022. Given the amount of source material that is currently there to work with, chances are that the series will deviate from the manga as the chapter release will not be able to catch up with the season release.
The upcoming season will be covering the Ilblu Arc of the manga, which will lead our group to the Golden City. The trailer for Made in Abyss Season 2 shows a quest on the rocky seas that lands our group on an isolated island. What lies ahead is going to come at a high price to pay.
