Made in Abyss Key VisualMade In Abyss is based on Akihito Tsukushi’s manga of the same name. Masayuki Kojima (Monster, Black Bullet) directed 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) was in charge of series composition for the project.

Sentai Filmworks currently holds the rights to Made In Abyss. They describe 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?
