Sentai Filmworks describes Made in Abyss: Journey's Dawn:
The enigmatic Abyss is an unforgiving and deadly place. Despite the dangers, it still captures the imagination of explorers such as Riko who wishes to follow in her mother's footsteps and trains hard to become a Cave Raider. One day, she receives news that her mother died in the Abyss, yet a mysterious note tells Riko that her mother may still be alive. Vowing to uncover the truth about her mother's fate, Riko embarks on a journey with a humanoid robot boy named Reg. Together they will discover if they have what it takes to survive where so many others have perished.
Sentai Filmworks describes Made in Abyss: Wandering Twilight:
Made in Abyss: Wandering Twilight follows Riko and Reg on their adventure through the Abyss, picking up directly after the events of Made in Abyss: Journey's Dawn. The mystery surrounding her mother's death deepens as Riko learns more about the truth of her origins. More determined than ever to travel to the bottom of the Abyss, Riko and Reg leave Ozen's Seeker Camp and delve into the treacherous Third Layer — and beyond. Perilous, poignant and spectacular in turns, this continuation of Riko and Reg's journey is sure to leave fans of MADE IN ABYSS absolutely spellbound.
