This lovely series is getting the send-off it deserves.
Yesterday, the Made In Abyss anime series’ official Twitter account announced that the show will receive an hour-long finale. The thirteenth and final episode will hit Japanese TV on September 29.
A preview event is planned for September 24. The show’s staff and cast are slated to attend the event.
Made In Abyss is based on Akihito Tsukushi’s manga of the same name. Masayuki Kojima (Monster, Black Bullet) is directing the show at Kinema Citrus, with Kazuchika Kise (Ghost in the Shell) providing character designs. Hideyoshi Kurata (Now and Then, Here and There, World God Only Knows) is in charge of series composition for the project.
Sentai Filmworks currently holds the rights to Made In Abyss, while HIDIVE streams the title as a simulcast. Sentai describes the show as:
The “Abyss” is the last unexplored region, an enormous and treacherous cave system filled with ancient relics and strange creatures. Only the bravest of adventurers can traverse its depths, earning them the nickname, “Cave Raiders.” Within the depths of the Abyss, a girl named Riko stumbles upon a robot who looks like a young boy. Tantalized by the Abyss, Riko and her new friend descend into uncharted territory to unlock its mysteries, but what lies in wait for them in the darkness?
