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.

Will There Be Made in Abyss season 2?

I was really looking forward to the North American screening of the third movie.
They haven't given us any information on when it's coming back,
but this delay will make the wait for Season 2 a little bit shorter.

With how amazing everything was in the first season,
I'm more than happy to wait as long as needed
if it means we'll get that same par of quality.

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. -_-

DON'T worry, it IS a new season... Follow this thread, rather read it from the beginning, you'll know... 😉😎😇

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

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...

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?
