Fortunately, on November 26, 2017, an exciting news appeared on the official Twitter page of the anime. According to this announcement, Made in Abyss has got a sequel. You may watch the official video announcement below. Frankly, we have been waiting for the renewal. Below is our forecast on the subject. We used the statistical approach to figure out the odds of Made in Abyss to return for Season 2. As turned out, we were right in our assumptions.
We will use an indirect approach in an attempt to predict the fate of the franchise. First, we would like to note that Made in Abyss has received an incredibly favorable response from the target audience. According to MyAnimeList, the fantasy anime holds a score of 8.92/10 ~ 91,500 votes. We consider this indicator pretty high. Secondly, the original manga series consists of six volumes and is currently ongoing. Although there is currently not enough source material to produce one more season, we still think that Akihito Tsukushi will soon add more chapters to the story. Finally, the series indeed very well done. The series' creators managed to build such a gripping fantasy world that we think very few viewers remained indifferent to the series.
Made in Abyss premiered in July 2017. It's a television adaptation of the eponymous manga by Akihito Tsukushi. Kinema Citrus served as the series developer. Sentai Filmworks acted as a licensor of the anime in North America. The first season consists of thirteen episodes. The anime is available for video streaming on Amazon Prime Video.
What Is Made in Abyss About?For those who didn't have a chance to get acquainted with the anime, here is a brief overview below.
People always strived to comprehend the unknown, even if this could cause a danger. Centuries ago, the human discovered an island in the sea of Beoluska with a giant hole amidst it. Many people visited the island in an attempt to find the supposed treasures inside the hole. Endless hordes of treasure hunters gradually populated this piece of land as a result. As turned out, the hole is indeed rich in treasures. However, those Cave Raiders, who descended deeper claimed that there are dangerous creatures inside the pit. Some of them supposed that the hole is fathomless in fact. Thus, people started to call this place the Abyss. Over time, the town of Oosu appeared around the Abyss, thanks to the efforts of the descendants of the first treasure hunters.
The story focuses on Riko, a 12-year-old girl, who is an orphan like many other children in the town since their parents disappeared in the Abyss. These children are forced to live in shelters, under the guild of researchers who study the hole. Keeping memories of her legendary mother, Riko is aspired to as fast as possible get a White Whistle, which will allow her to descend into the Abyss. But for now, she is just a student, who is content with a Red Whistle. This status allows Riko to descend just for 100 feet below the surface. One day, Riko stumbles upon a cyborg named Reg, who rescues her from danger. Together, they embark on a journey deeper inside the Abyss.
