The first 13-episode television anime series based on Akihito Tsukushi's manga premiered in Japan in July 2017. Sentai Filmworks licensed the series and released it on Blu-ray Disc on October 23. The English-subtitled version of the show streamed in the United States on Amazon's Anime Strike service, and HIDIVE streamed the series outside of the United States. The dub is also streaming on HIDIVE.
Production of a sequel is underway.
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 is releasing the manga in English. Takeshobo published the manga's seventh volume in Japan on July 27.
