Made in Abyss – My Anime Recommendation


It’s been a while since I wrote something about movies/tv series/anime.  I decided to write something about this anime simply because it deserves recommendation. This anime is artistically written and made.  I just love every inch of this Anime.

I always like fantasy and magic-themed animes. Though Made in Abyss is fantasy-advanture anime, it focuses more on the story. The way they build the each of the character is mind-boggling. Until the very end of season one you are still not sure who they really are and what would happened next.

I watched animes at, and here’s the description of this anime

Genres: Adventure, Drama, Fantasy, Mystery, Sci-Fi

Date aired: Jul 7, 2017 to Sep 29, 2017

Status: Completed


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.


This is not the typical anime that I usually watch. It made me think and analyse the characters every episode, yet I always ended not really knowing anything.  Just when I thought I know what will happen next, then the writer has actually a different idea in mind. lol

Watching every episode of this anime made me feel connected to Riko & Reg.  There are no super magical powers here (except that blaster of Reg). This is not like Naruto, FairyTail, HunterXHUnter.. It is a league of its own.  The Abyss World is also superbly created.  The author of this anime may have idolize Hayao Miyazaki when he created the Abyss World.  Similar to Hayao’s work the Abyss World is the Abyss World.  There’s no comparison.  Maybe I am exaggerating now. lol  I just like this anime a lot.  It deserves to be watched and second season.

Oh by the way, this anime made me cry as well.  Watch out for that episode!!!

So please… do watch this anime…

I actually don’t know what to say as I am not good in writing movie/tv reviews… If you like Hayao’s films then you will also like this.  Not exactly the same but on the same direction…

Akihhito Tsukushi is the manga writer of this series.  It’s like he’s telling us The World is Beautiful (the Abyss) but also dangerous… I got that kind of feeling in Hayao’s film. 😀
