Made in Abyss

  • AKA: メイドインアビス
  • Aired: 07/07/2017
  • Episodes: 13

The Abyss—a gaping chasm stretching down into the depths of the earth, filled with mysterious creatures and relics from a time long past. How did it come to be? What lies at the bottom? Countless brave individuals, known as Divers, have sought to solve these mysteries of the Abyss, fearlessly descending into its darkest realms. The best and bravest of the Divers, the White Whistles, are hailed as legends by those who remain on the surface.

Riko, daughter of the missing White Whistle Lyza the Annihilator, aspires to become like her mother and explore the furthest reaches of the Abyss. However, just a novice Red Whistle herself, she is only permitted to roam its most upper layer. Even so, Riko has a chance encounter with a mysterious robot with the appearance of an ordinary young boy. She comes to name him Reg, and he has no recollection of the events preceding his discovery. Certain that the technology to create Reg must come from deep within the Abyss, the two decide to venture forth into the chasm to recover his memories and see the bottom of the great pit with their own eyes. However, they know not of the harsh reality that is the true existence of the Abyss.

Mysteriously in Depth

Highlight Points

  1. Main Plot is unique and not as cliche as other animes about a child going after a long lost parent. The main objective of the Main Character is there but the plot doesn't just focus on the objective of the Main Character alone. 
  2. Background stories of the supporting roles are in depth and spice up the anime as a whole.
  3. The anime shares some of its secrets and teasingly keeps other mysteries in reserve for the viewers to find out sooner or later in the anime. It doesn't give everything all at once which makes it not boring to watch.                                                 

Comments

  1. Character Developments are kind of slow since there are a lot of backstories shown so some parts of the anime focuses on this supporting character and so on. This backstories MAY BE because the anime wants to explain the real deal about the abyss by the use of these backstories so it kind of goes against chronological order unlike other animes where the Main Character discovers the truth for himself. In this anime the supporting characters were given the spotlight and the viewers can see through the thoughts and point of views of each supporting characters.

      and the names of the characters. I'm hoping someone will know what it is and can tell me, based on what i remember of the plot?
       
      A baby girl is sent forward it time, to protect her from a war in ancient japan (to "modern" day, late 90s, early 2000s...) and grows to teenage/high school age. She was found as a baby in the same place the ritual was performed, by an archaeologist and his son, who then adopted and raised her. When she returns to the place where she first appeared, she is sent back again to not long after she left. She and her adoptive brother, who absorbed her power as she went forward in time, are now stuck in the middle of a raging war, trying to find a way to return to the time they came from.

      Hey guys! I was wondering if you guys have read 'Sorairo Ageha' by Kumagai Kyoko.
      The art style is adorable, the characters are heartwarming and the dialogue is often quite funny - since it's quite a short shoujo (11 chapters long) and rather underestimated, I'd really recommend at least having a quick look.
      I'd love to hear back about what you guys think!
