Nanachi Reunites With Mitty for Made in Abyss Figure

posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
Anime News Network's merchandise coverage sponsored by Tokyo Otaku Mode.

Keep your tissues at the ready because this new figure from Good Smile Company and FREEing is a real tearjerker.

Measuring at 1/8-scale, the figure depicts Nanachi embracing her friend closely on a grassy field.The field itself is actually a soft, plush material. The pose is based on an original image from the manga's third volume.

The figure costs 10,926 yen (US$96) and is expected to ship in July 2018.

Kotobukiya opened pre-orders for its own Nanachi figure (sans Mitty) at the end of October.

Amazon Prime's Anime Strike streaming channel simulcast Made in Abyss in the U.S. as it aired in Japan. Sentai Filmwork's HIDIVE service streamed the series in English outside of the U.S.

In the story, an enormous pit and cave system called the "Abyss" is the only unexplored place in the world. Strange and wonderful creatures reside in its depths, and it is full of precious relics that current humans are unable to make. The mysteries of the Abyss fascinate humans, and they head down to explore. The adventurers who venture into pit are known as "Cave Raiders." A little orphan girl named Rico lives in the town of Ōsu on the edge of the Abyss. Her dream is to become a Cave Raider like her mother and solve the mysteries of the cave system. One day, Rico starts exploring the caves and discovers a robot who resembles a human boy.

Masayuki Kojima (Black Bullet, Tibetan Dog) directed the anime at the studio Kinema Citrus (Scorching Ping Pong Girls, Barakamon). Hideyuki Kurata (Samurai Flamenco, The World God Only Knows) was in charge of series composition, and Kazuchika Kise (Ghost in the Shell: Arise Alternative Architecture, xxxHOLiC) designed the characters. Kevin Penkin (Norn9, Under the Dog) composed the music.

A sequel anime is in the works.
