This Sunday, Kadokawa announced the production of a sequel project for the franchise based on the manga written and illustrated by Akihito Tsukushi. Crafted in the Abyss. However, it has not yet been confirmed if this new production will be a third season of the series or if it will be a movie or an OVA. No release date has been set either.
The truth is that for now, the manga doesn't have enough footage to adapt to a full-season television project. However, fans of this franchise can rejoice in the confirmation of this announcement, and any project will always be welcome.
Author Akihito Tsukushi began publishing the manga through the magazine Web Comic Gamma from the publisher takeshobo in October 2012. The play inspired a thirteen-episode first season released in July 2017, followed by two compilation films, one film titled Made in Abyss: Dawn of the Deep Soul and a second season to be released in July 2021.
Synopsis for Made in Abyss
The Abyss... a yawning abyss that stretches deep into the earth, filled with mysterious creatures and relics from a bygone age. How did it come about? What's in the background? Countless brave individuals known as "Diggers" have attempted to solve the mysteries of the Abyss by fearlessly descending into the darkness. The bravest and finest of the Diggers, the White Whistles are hailed as legends by those who prefer to stay above ground.
Riko, the daughter of a missing White Whistle, aspires to be like her mother and explore the depths of the Abyss. However, since she is a Red Whistle, she is only allowed to explore the top layer. But an encounter with a mysterious robot with no memories marks the beginning of the adventure down, unaware that the further down they descend, the harsher the reality of the Abyss will be.
