The stage greeting event commemorating the release of the Made in Abyss: Fukaki Tamashii no Reimei (Made in Abyss: Dawn of the Deep Soul) anime film announced a sequel for the series on Saturday. The official website also revealed an image board (pictured above) and an announcement promo.

Voice actresses Miyu Tomita (Riko), Mariya Ise (Regu), Shiori Izawa (Nanachi), and Inori Minase (Prushka) attended the event at the EJ Anime Theater in Shinjuku.

Made in Abyss adapts Akihito Tsukushi's adventure fantasy manga of the same title, which began its serialization in the Web Comic Gamma website in October 2012. Takeshobo published the eighth volume in May 2019.

The first anime series produced by Kinema Citrus aired in 13 episodes in Summer 2017. Kadokawa released two compilation films—subtitled Tabidachi no Yoake (Journey's Dawn) and Hourou Suru Tasogare (Wandering Twilight)—on January 4 and 18 last year, respectively. The Fukaki Tamashii no Reimei sequel anime film opened in Japan on Friday (pictured right).

Sentai Filmworks licensed the anime and streamed it on Amazon's now-defunct Anime Strike platform and HIDIVE. The company released the television series on Blu-ray and DVD in October 2018 and screened the compilation films in the U.S. theaters in March and May last year. Sentai Filmworks also acquired the Fukaki Tamashii no Reimei anime film in July 2019 and plans to premiere it this year.

Seven Seas Entertainment licensed the manga in English in 2017 and shipped the seventh volume in September 2019. The eighth volume is planned for a March 31 release. The manga has also been published in multiple foreign languages, including Chinese, Mandarin, and Korean.

Made in Abyss ranked among the top 20 titles in the male readers' division in the 2018 Kono Manga ga Sugoi! rankings and was nominated for the 11th Manga Taisho Awards.

Still haven't got round to watching the first season. I've heard it is good. This has potentialy convinced me to check it out.

I don't understand why they're following up the brilliant first season with movies. Should've been a 2nd season from the get-go. Wouldn't surprise me if this just ends up being another movie. -_-

So is this going to be a TV series or just another movie in the endless line of movies they have?

Meh, wasnt impressed with the first season. Interesting plot ruined by overuse of flashbacks and conveniences

Jan 21, 1:27 PM by Mazurkanator

Although it means the manga will keep slowing down... Worth it?

I couldn’t dream better than that!

Ah yes, the fantasy about children participating in excessive brutality. Poor poor Japanese people... Please, protect them.

Wait, so the first 2 movies are a compilation of the first season and the third movie adapted new stuff?


The first 2 movies are just recaps, the third one is the one that follows s1 with a new arc yeah.


Thank you! I would have skipped it...

Jan 18, 10:46 AM by Miragee

Great news! :-) I do wonder though whether this will be a full season. I thought there is not enough material yet written for a new season?

Jan 18, 9:43 AM by huntress1013

Hell yes! I'm so fucking hyped for a sequel for this series since it's probably one of my current favorites, not to mention I do need to go and give it a re-watch at some point and time just for this and a few others ><

Chapters became much longer as the manga went on. Every MiA volume has the same number of pages, so let's use that as reference instead. Season 1 covered roughly 3.15 volumes. The movie covered roughly 1.85. 5 volumes have been adapted into anime.

There are 8 complete volumes of manga released and half of an unfinished one in chapters 52 and 53. So 8.5 volumes of manga available.

There are 3.5 volumes of manga that hasn't been adapted yet, more than the 3.15 from season 1, or more or less the same give or take various details like the extra chapters. If anything, this seems to indicate that the arc is going to wrap up soon. Furthermore, if the previous sequel confirmation was any indication, it's going to take at least a year for this announcement to materialize, so there's more than enough time for new chapters, even by Tsukushi standards.

Now this is weird.
The arc they they want to adapt still has not enough chapter for a full season, nor has it reached its conclusion in the manga.
A movie, maybe? But there there is not a good stopping point

Okay who cares, FAPUTA ANIMATED HYPE!

From what i have read up to know, the current arc is defintly reaching its climax but it will be awhile longer, my guess is that this new season will be out sometime in mid to late 2021 or even early 2022 as the movie just wrapped up and anime series takes about 3 to 4 years to produce, if this started when mia s1 already finished it should be out by right around than. Guess we will wait and see.

We pretty much expected this would happen and it is now officially confirmed now it is just a waiting game. No need to rush as long as the quality is the same level as both the first season and the movie.

Best arc yet (I know it's not done), the worldbuilding and plot is just insane this arc
