this fucking anime

Ah, a hollow then. Forgot what Lyza said about them in the beginning, guess I'll check that out.

Despite how rough this episode was to watch,i'm surprised how many people were shocked by the tonal shift which has sorta always been there and somewhat dark or at least they've indicated it was with all the death and what not ,i just hope there are some serious consequences for this because if it wasn't for the sake of the plot progressing i still don't think they would've made it this far i mean it was suicidal from the start lol.
Clearly, it's almost wrong to speak of a tonal shift. They've been narrowly escaping death since episode 1. Everything has been ambiguous in the abyss. Ohzen is the perfect example.

Mostly because we never shown how dangerous the Abyss is, but always talked about "so dangerous, so many died" but never shown, this is the first time. Before this the whole thing felt like a picnic, and even this one occasion wont result in anything new.
Sure the little almost toodler girl, suffered a little, but she will recover without problem and this whole thing end up for nothing , just a filler.
It would have been far better to see the robot chopping her hand, now thats CONSEQUNCE.
We need more of that, not only in this show, but overall in other animes, most anime makes even death feel like a temporary condition, easy to come back like nothing happened

Then you really were not paying attention... Even disregarding all of the comments on death etc.... just the nature of the culture, and everything that goes on there . . . You must have zero sense of environment, because the danger of it has even been alluded to via circumstance and presentation alone. You are the one here who seems to need to see consequence to know it's there.

I saw it come and go several times... Up until this point they had been extremely lucky, and they were riding on their luck. If they keep doing that they'll end up dead, or survive by pure RNG.

WTF man, how hard and painful was this episode.

For some moments I remembered that I had a similar reaction when I saw the episode 3 of Madoka xD

This episode was a lot better than the previous one in all sense, taking aside some things from the plot, or from character actions in this episode (I'm talking to you, Reg).
This arc of the loli rabbit is leaving me a better impression than the one of Ouzen, although I do not think that they add anything more on the past history of Riko.
Apparently in the ending now the adventures will be in charge of these 3 characters until the end.




PS: Has anyone already taken a look or is reading the manga ?: (No spoilers pls)
I am interested in knowing if they are omitting some things in this adaptation, also I have doubts on the level of censorship that is having.
Many thanks in advance if you respond, anyway I am determined to read the manga when this series ends. Although I am not sure to read it from the beginning or not.

Jesus Christ. This was probably the most suspenseful thing I've ever watched. I spent most of the episode crying due to nerves and the obvious emotional stuff.

It was awesome.

After years of The Walking Dead avid watching, whenever I see someone get afflicted with a deadly poison/venom on a limb, I automatically think that it may get amputated, so I wasn't particularly bothered or surprised by the scenes.

This anime has been consistently great from the beginning. While it seems adventurous and kid-oriented due to the art, it's very riveting and deep nonetheless.

And finally that furball from the OP makes an appearance. It seems really cute and mysterious. Gotta add to the party! :D

Mygosh I can't stand Riko, she's so useless since the first episode.


By all standards, she's not useless. She's held back by her physical limitations, but she's got the brains. Let's remind ourselves that what she's doing for a kid her age is not accomplished by many much older and psychically capable adults.

Really, Reg's got the brawn, while Riko's go the wits. Only when you compare them in a combat-capable situation do you perceive her as useless. Otherwise, she's great.

None omitted, what was shown in this episode was almost exactly what was in the manga. The only difference was that the manga actually showed Reg trying to cut Riko's bones instead of just us hearing about it.
On the other hand, I suppose that would have been too much for television.

Oh, and if you thought that was bad, there's worse to come.

Whats this Japan?

An actual anime where the characters made quick decisions, are mature and suffer consequences? This is heretic!

I loved when the new character went up and said "it's like a kiss".

In EVERY OTHER ANIME we would get three minutes with this lame romantic drama when the character is blushed or something else.

But nope. It's life or death, no need to spend time thinking about bullocks.

Japan, Japan. Is this even made in your land? Because it's too good to be true. It's waaaay too good to be true.

To add to this, you can always see how distraught Reg is whenever Riko isn't around, but now she was nearing death you could see how helpless he was.

I watched a ton of anime, and the scene where Riko is bleeding out and Reg tries to cut her arm has to be one of the hardest and the most suspenseful that I've ever watched, it really made me feel bad for them, I felt really uneasy and really thought for a second that she would have to go on with a major handicap (her hand + other things)... Well, we'll see.

I think this would've benefited from a longer runtime than the standard 20-21 minutes runtime, mainly for setting up the struggle between the transition of descending to the fourth layer and the creature that was chasing, where spending a bit more time on the creature and the struggle with them overcoming and finding a solution to escape the position in which they are, would allow us to sympathise and feel the struggle they had much more effectively.

Next, I think exposition that's been going on from episode one up to now should be reduced to a minimum or should've been set in the earlier episodes, because we're already too deep in the episode count and I find it weird that there is worldbuilding occurring or some other exposition that is going to happen in the next scene or a couple of minutes down the episode.

Lastly, there should've been consequences for Riko, else, it's just dark for the sake of being dark, all the screaming and crying will just lose it value and power once you realise that there won't be any consequences for our characters.

All in all, a good episode with good acting and with couple of improvements and creative liberty that would've suffice to make this a better episode with real consequence to our characters.

Oh no.. the Rikodex is broken, how will they be able to identify all the pokemons now? :(


OT: Seeing Riko struggle like this kinda makes last week episode feel in a way rather pointless.. But regardless good episode overall i guess (even if most of the running time consisted of mostly just bleeding and screaming), they will probably stay in this layer for quite sometime now because of Riko injury.

Damn, that was something. The whole episode had such an intense atmosphere. The music was great, and the voice acting was amazing.

Too bad I already got the scene spoiled cause people keep posting manga spoilers in the ANIME ONLY discussions. Seriously, fuck off with the spoilers.

That's really a silly thing to say, if all episodes were as intense and dramatic as this by the time we would have reached ep10 that scene would have had ZERO impact, maybe words like "world-building" and "Dramatic Structure" mean nothing to you but the majority of us understand their importance and appreciate it.


You really wanna start something, huh.

Well, I don't know if you've been paying attention to what people have been saying, but I'm not the only one saying this anime has been paced too slowly. Christ, the episodes with Orza, they took an entire episode just to adapt a single chapter of the manga. I shouldn't have to wait 10 episodes for the bass to drop. If it were any other show with less interesting lore and characters I would have dropped it 3 episodes ago.

Don't talk like you know me. Humble yourself.

After having this PTW before the season started and then removing it, I'm still not sure whether I want to start watching it or not. Seems like a whole show of Frodo and Sam in Mordor, only with A) less of a good reason to be there and B) no end in sight. On the other hand, not having seen it is probably going to become more and more annoying over time....

I haven't gotten the opportunity yet to watch past ep 3 as I've been busy but what's this I'm hearing about? Someone said it was Berserk level so are we talking just extreme gore or is a little girl going to get raped by some weird fucking monster? Cause i'd rather see a baby get eaten (like in castlevania) before the japanese rapey town by weird monster happen

It's just a lot of blood and gore, nothing else. And too be honest, it's not terribly graphic like Berserk. But it is more disturbing than your average anime.

Are you kidding me ? she'd be dead long ago without Regu who do everything and save her ass everytime. She was so close to die on the FIRST layer please
She's really useless and if she hasn't a great training arc (not the short thing before, that's not enough) she's gonna die like a shit before ending her journey.

She even said "But you know, less than ten percent of the creatures in the Abyss have even been named.” And she's poisoned and trapped by the monsters SHE KNOW ABOUT DAMNIT

It were just a matter of time before she take a reality slap in the head.


You clearly have no clue whatsoever about what "Character Dynamics" mean, not every goddamn character has to be freaking power houses with excessive strength and flawless intellect, characters that can shatter boulders with their bare-hands and lift a ton of steel while solving complex quantum physics equations.

The more a character is competent from the start of the story and the more there are competent characters the faster things get stale and boring, Riko starts off poorly becasue she is a red whistle and a child ffs, still she is far more knowledgeable and resourceful than Reg will ever be.

Also knowing about a creature by itself doesn't make you immune to it, that's just so silly idea, she just mentioned this episode a BLACK WHISTLE had to cut their goddamn arm off because they were poisoned by the creature, and clearly from the stuff we see inside the house of Nanachi in that cave plenty of BLACK And PURPLE whistles DIED on this level, so don't you give me this crap about "she was poisoned and trapped by the monsters she knew about", FUCK the first thing she asks Reg to do is to fucking run away a.s.a.p, which is the thing they end up doing in the end and saves their lives.

Long story short NEITHER of them would have survived without the other, that's the whole goddamn point of the show ffs, that they both need each other to survive, Riko needs Regs strong robotic body, grappling hooks and Incinerator beam while Reg needs Riko's Intellect, bravery, knowledge, optimism and cooking skills.

As for what she did since the start of the series.
-Saved her friend from a monster that would have eaten him by risking her life even though she wasn't trained or armed to fight something like that nor should the creature be in the first lv.
-She is the one who took the decision to start that journey (partially because of the message she got and the fact she is magically attracted to the Abyss like Ozen said).
-She dragged unconscious Reg and survived several encounters with multiple creatures as well as the curse to get them to safety.

Reg might be a powerful robot but he is amnesiac, ignorant about the Abyss, very hesitant and totally unmotivated on his own, he would be going around wandering aimlessly or get trapped and crushed somewhere if it wasn't for Riko keeping him focused and motivating him to push forward into the Abyss.[/quote]

Well yeah you said it.
All of this story is full of bullshit and it's like they took children and put them into a dark fantasy world just because they wanted to made a torture porn with children, cause they're vulnerable and cute and people will love them.

What kind of morons let children go on a deadly journey like this ? NOBODY.
Fucking god. Everyone help them and everyone is dumb. Ouzen have a weird personallity so why not, but the others have absolutely no exscuses.

The red whistle isn't an excuse, they could have wait to be better but no, it's funnier if they go on their journey as children.

Story is crap. Characters are crap. But I like torture porn, the universe / background, mystery, robots and moe so I watch it for that. But definitely not for these stupid heroes who have what they deserve.

First of all, I agree with you that this entire journey is stupid


No it isn't, Riko is magically attracted and compelled to go to the bottom of the abyss ever since she was born in the Abyss, died in it, then was revived by the magical cube artifact, that's why the whole damn thing is TRAGIC rather than stupid.

One small problem is that they namedrop/explain a bit too much I think. Really minor tho
Anyway, deserves the praise and the 92% approval, even though I unfortunately was spoiled this scene miles back.
You can tell the producers put extra effort into this, it looks and sounds noticeably more dynamic

It's not like they spent 3 entire episodes establishing that the whole society around the abyss has completely different values from ours and basically deifies weirdos that go die at the bottom of the hole if they find anything new about it. Also, everyone who could have stopped riko and reg in the city (aka leader, habo and their friends from the orphanage) didn't do it because they knew that even if they tried they wouldn't be able to stop them.
Tl;dr: the whole "why did they let them go?" Argument is not really valid.
To the sky, to the stars, and even beyond in the beautiful infinity of space...

If you want torture porn I'm pretty sure there are plenty of better alternatives outhere with interesting settings, go watch them instead of coming here and spewing that cynical crap.

And if they tried to stop they would have failed either way because Riko would never stop attempting to escape, so letting them go unprepared and with ZERO help is somehow better, i think not, also don't forget the state never approved any of this.

And there are plenty of reasons for starting the Journey now, Reg's arrival (which is obvuously linked to Riko's mother as seen from her documents), the documents themselves, whistle of Riko's mother and the mysterious message asking her to go into the Abyss (which is confirned to not be written by her mother), and the very damn fact she is already cursed and was born and died already once into the Abyss, afflicting her with the uncontrolable urge to seek the depths of the Abyss as Ozen explicitly explained.

So sorry the only crap i see here is your tantrums.

I never really liked the premise of this show, but really the character and the story is good.
But really kid wandering in unknown just accompanied by another kid robot, that is simply scary, I couldn't really stand watching this.

The event in this episode simply proves my fear. Oh my god, if they were not anime characters they would be long dead.

OMG! this episode really made me "WTF!!!!"
3/4 of this whole episode is very painful to watch especially to the condition of Riko!
but DAMN! Nanachi is a real life saver and if Nanachi wasn't there, for sure Riko is goners!
5/5!

I think that this season will end with
as there is a lot of content that has been condensed in the manga to rush it towards
which got confusing at times and definitely felt very rushed in comparison to previous chapters.

But damn, things are all gonna head further downhill from here
Phosphophyllite is best gem

While i watched this episode i got teary eyed, i was heavy breathing and my legs were trembling.
After it finished i lied down to recover from the shock, for about 20 minutes. I was still trembling and my heart was beating fast, and when i got up my vision just got black for around 3 seconds.
This never happened to me , even though i watched anime that were supposes to be "sad",or were gore-filled.
Also, this really did happen to me.
I did not watch this anime beacause i though the round style used for riko and reg was it's art style(welp, it's not),but now i marathoned it to episode 10 and im glad i did...
10/5 never had such an experience in my life. Anime of the year if the remaining seasons do not bring us something truly exceptional..

I haven't gotten the opportunity yet to watch past ep 3 as I've been busy but what's this I'm hearing about? Someone said it was Berserk level so are we talking just extreme gore or is a little girl going to get raped by some weird fucking monster? Cause i'd rather see a baby get eaten (like in castlevania) before the japanese rapey town by weird monster happen
It's just a lot of blood and gore, nothing else. And too be honest, it's not terribly graphic like Berserk. But it is more disturbing than your average anime.


So it is just more so people weren't expecting it from this anime. Then I don't mind watching it if it is blood and gore. Watched castlevania netflix's animated 4eps and you see babies and people gettin torn in half and their intestines strung across spikes so it maybe hard to top that lol

Netflix's Castlevania is more brutal than Made in Abyss, though Made in Abyss probably had a more disturbing/intense atmosphere during this episode.

You must have zero sense of environment, because the danger of it has even been alluded to via circumstance and presentation alone. You are the one here who seems to need to see consequence to know it's there.

I saw it come and go several times... Up until this point they had been extremely lucky, and they were riding on their luck. If they keep doing that they'll end up dead, or survive by pure RNG.


By this logic shounen animes also have consequences and sense of dangers... Except in 99,999% of those shows the hero always finds a way and somewhat always has laughable lucky pure rng.
In this fable, even more laughable, the little kid girl who ALWAYS DOES STUPID THINGS surviving against impossible odds despite hunderds of ADULT EXPERIENCED adventures dying on every layers.. There is only so much luck one can take before the whole thing loses its appeal and made in abyss already played that trope so many times, plus never showing any real consquence.



@Kariossus
Bullseye. Its way too CONVINCENT, I mean did anyone really think for a moment that the girl lose her arm? I certainly didnt, expected a miracle saving, and got that...

@Titadou
This isnt even a torture porn, 75% of this show pure trash filler contect, and about 1% the so called "gore"... It could have been great if few little child also went with the pair, and we would have seen those dying horribly in absyy, just imagine, now thats a first class material.

@Talcon
Agreed. 9 episodes and barely anything happened, this whole show, just terribly slow and as heard very unpopular in japan exactly because of that.
All this so called world building makes no sense, because its not gonna play any real role anyway. I guess we just cant enjoy fillers
This show should have been a 4 episode ova

Oh my fucking god, I was grabbing my arm for half the episode, that was simply brutal.

Amazing episode, we also got to see Nanachi for first time, source readers seem to hype this character pretty hard, solid introduction so far.

So they did it, i'm glad that anime adaptation keep the brutality from the manga.

Manga


I doubt an hour can cover everything leading to the elevator. more than likely it will be the story of Nanachi and Mitty with some filler extension to pad out the story more.

Or they just put everything in one big ending, to not left anime with half ending.

I saw stuff on twitter about episode 10 in Made in Abyss and I wasn't going to pick up any anime this season but I was coerced otherwise and I thought it was gonna be some generic anime but when episode 10 came around... holy shit.

Not even the furry topped that scene.

Shit got real FAST!
The beast was damm ferocious, to the point I feel like the plot in cheating on the MCs...
And Reg had to break her arm, a bit more and he would have finished severing it too.
Really creepy with all the amount of blood pouring out too!
