Hello everybody, こんにちは皆さん
Big news, if you are a Made in Abyss fan, then you are in for a treat.
A short synopsis, if you have not yet heard about the series:
- The Abyss—a gaping chasm stretching down into the depths of the earth, filled with mysterious creatures and relics from a time long past. How did it come to be? What lies at the bottom? Countless brave individuals, known as Divers, have sought to solve these mysteries of the Abyss, fearlessly descending into its darkest realms. The best and bravest of the Divers, the White Whistles, are hailed as legends by those who remain on the surface.
- Riko, daughter of the missing White Whistle Lyza the Annihilator, aspires to become like her mother and explore the furthest reaches of the Abyss. However, just a novice Red Whistle herself, she is only permitted to roam its most upper layer. Even so, Riko has a chance encounter with a mysterious robot with the appearance of an ordinary young boy. She comes to name him Reg, and he has no recollection of the events preceding his discovery. Certain that the technology to create Reg must come from deep within the Abyss, the two decide to venture forth into the chasm to recover his memories and see the bottom of the great pit with their own eyes. However, they know not of the harsh reality that is the true existence of the Abyss.
The unprecedented arrival of the anime adapted from the light novel didn’t quite cause quite a stir when it released in the Fall 2017 season to a lukewarm reception, however instantly becoming a cult classic and being circulated through the anime community become famous.
We can be glad this happened, since, there is no dull moment or lull in the narration of the adventure. The story took us on an emotional rollercoaster, and, eventually, rightly earned the title of Anime of the year at the 2017 Crunchyroll Anime awards.
Putting that on the aside for a second: On the back of winning the award, production has announced two new movies, which has been set to release in 2019. We could at least see the first one in the winter 2018 and the second in the fall 2018 seasons. This should be anticipated round up of the story, bringing it to a close.
Part one “Made in Abyss: Tabidachi no Yoake”(Journey’s Dawn)
“ Made in Abyss: Hourousuru Tasogare”(Wandering Twilight)
I really cannot wait to find out how the plot unfolds and what lies ahead for the young adventurers.
But until then, I will see you soon…
