-both look childish at a first glance, but in reality are completely messed up
While watching Made in Abyss I couldn't help but be reminded of Kaiba every step of the way. Right off the bat it is apparent that the two protagonists (Reg and Kaiba) are similar to each other, as they are both amnesiacs who posses great power, and are both thrown into an adventure for the sake of one whom they hold dear. Not only that, but the very nature of these shows are similar, as the viewer is allowed to immerse themself into a spectacular universe where the possibilities are limitless. Whether it be upside down forests with Made in Abyss, or underwater ghost towns
Both stories involve character(s) exploring a vast world filled with interesting things, Both main characters are exploring the world to find someone they love.
