The production of the second “Made in Abyss” season is once again the responsibility of Studio Kinema Citrus, who have already taken care of the first season of the anime. Director Masayuki Kojima will also be there again, which also applies to Hitoshi Haga, who represents him. The series composition is again the responsibility of Hideyuki Kurata, who is also solely responsible for the scripts this time. In the character designs, Kazuchika Kise will be supported this time by Yuka Kuroda, who was already involved in season 1 as an animation director and was responsible for the film “Made in Abyss: Souls of Darkness”. With the announcement of the number of episodes, it was also revealed that the series will receive a mini-anime. This will be released in Japan on October 26, 2022 and will be included as a disc extra.

Made in Abyss Season 2 Visual
Made in Abyss Season 2 Plot
The encounter with Bondrewd has cost the companions Riko, Reg and Nanachi a lot: Reg has lost one of his arms, Nanachi has learned that Bondrewd can see through her eyes and Riko is still shaken by what happened to Prushka, Bondrewd’s daughter. At least the journey to the sixth layer is gentle and its “elevator” releases it into a light-flooded landscape.
Here lies Iru buru, the capital of shadows, i.e. beings like Nanachi is one. The community there seems friendly and welcoming, even if Riko and her friends don’t understand their language. But as is the case with “Made in Abyss”: There is always something disturbing lurking beneath the surface. In the area of Iru buru there is also a being who claims to know Reg from the past. Let’s get to the bottom of the mysteries of the Abyss.
