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.

[Written by MAL Rewrite]


The first season adapts the first three manga volumes in their entirety, and it concludes with the first chapter of the manga's fourth volume.

Made in Abyss has earned its place as one of the best fantasy anime of the modern era, matching the likes of Berserk, Fullmetal Alchemist and Attack on Titans. It's creepy and ominous, yet innocent and adventurous, making it a unique and unforgettable experience.

Some might compare its world-building or story to shows like One Piece, but that's just an unfair comparison. It's world is less forgiving and much more cruel, the stakes in Made in Abyss are higher and actually feel real and terrifying.

Furthermore, the lore in Made in Abyss is unmatched, it goes to such depth to provide knowledge and an understanding of its ...

This is sooooo boring. The plot is simple but the narration is really hard to understand: it just constantly fills you with events without explanations. You just have to accept what happens in every single episode without really asking "why" because the brief answer the show would give you just leave you with more doubts.
So you just have to passively see things happen. And guess what? Most of these things are disturbing! I mean I am a grown adult and my stomach does not shake for something like this but I simply would have enjoyed more seeing videos of bees collecting their honey or birds ...

A girl and her humanoid robot friend escape an orphanage to travel to the bottom of the deep abyss in order to find the girl's mother. This world is very imaginative and the soundtrack is great.

However, as this rating shows, there are some critical flaws in this animation. One of the characters whom our heroes meet in the abyss is a foul lady. Watching the way she trains our heroes is very uncomfortable. The worst part of these 13 episodes is the part where someone's arm gets cut off by smashing the humerus bone with a large rock.

If the series was about the adventures ...
