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.
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.
