The "Deep in Abyss Katari" event for the Made in Abyss franchise announced on Sunday that the Made in Abyss television anime series is getting a sequel. The below video announcement for the sequel features new voiced lines by Toshiyuki Morikawa as Bondrewd.
The first 13-episode anime series premiered in Japan on July 7. Sentai Filmworks licensed the series. The show streamed in the United States on Amazon's Anime Strike service, and HIDIVE streamed the series outside of the United States.
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.
The anime is based on Akihito Tsukushi's manga of the same name. Seven Seas Entertainment has licensed the manga and will release it starting in January.
