It looks like the abyss will not wait much longer.
Earlier today, the official Made in Abyss anime website updated with a new teaser visual for the upcoming compilation film project, as well as details on the films’ premiere dates.
The new image features the main characters descending toward the camera. Behind them, various characters and beasts can be seen looming against a clear evening sky.
Both movies will hit Japanese theaters in January 2019. The schedule is as follows:
- Made in Abyss: Dawn of the Journey: 1/4/2019
- Made in Abyss: Wandering Night: 1/18/2018
The Made in Abyss films will be a compilation project, which recaps the events of the original TV series.
Made In Abyss is based on Akihito Tsukushi’s manga of the same name. Masayuki Kojima (Monster, Black Bullet) is directing the movies at Kinema Citrus, with Kazuchika Kise (Ghost in the Shell) providing character designs. Hideyoshi Kurata (Now and Then, Here and There, World God Only Knows) is in charge of series composition for the project.
Sentai Filmworks currently holds the rights to Made In Abyss. They describe the show as:
The “Abyss” is the last unexplored region, an enormous and treacherous cave system filled with ancient relics and strange creatures. Only the bravest of adventurers can traverse its depths, earning them the nickname, “Cave Raiders.” Within the depths of the Abyss, a girl named Riko stumbles upon a robot who looks like a young boy. Tantalized by the Abyss, Riko and her new friend descend into uncharted territory to unlock its mysteries, but what lies in wait for them in the darkness?
A second season of the show was announced on November 27, 2017.
