There are lots of anime based on Japanese manga. And here Made in Abyss will remain on top. That’s why we fans are waiting for the Made in Abyss season 2.
And the production studio has already confirmed this sequel. ‘Will There Be Made in Abyss Season 2’ release date can be the middle of 2022. And season 2 will surely give us more surprises. Now, how can we get the confirmation of the sequel?
Yes, there are some ways that indicate to you the possibility. And in this article, we are going to explore all of these.
Has Made In Abyss Season 2 Already Premiered?
Well, today I am discussing the Made in Abyss anime which is one of the highest-ranked anime in Japan. As you are an anime lover, I think this is something you will really enjoy. That’s because it has got a very touching story with an interesting plot.
The amazing anime television series is written by Hideyuki Kurata. And it was directed by Masayuki Kojima; Kinema Citrus adapted the series.
It’s a story about an orphaned girl and her robot who conquered a new place for the little girl’s mother. This Kinema Citrus adapted series’ first episode aired on July 7, 2017. It ended on September 29, 2017. There are 13 episodes in total.
Right after the premiere of this great adventure mystery, it has got a lot of benefits from OST and voice acting. But there is no official announcement of Made in Abyss season 2 so far. And without season 2, the fans will never know what happened to Riko and Nanachi in the deepest parts of Abyss.
The only way to know what happened further is to read the manga series. Well, for most fans, anime is more alluring than the reading manga. Also, as they liked it from the very beginning, definitely they are waiting for the next season.
How Can We Figure Out Made In Abyss Season Will Get Announced?
Without any doubt, we can say, after the release, the anime has attracted so many anime lovers. We can even see it looking at the ratings and reviews of the series.
But there is no announcement of its season 2 from the production. And it’s been almost 3 years since the first season ended.
However, there is a way that can help us to know if we should expect the next season of any anime. I have done it many times after going through anime series in the past few years. The same information about the anime will help us out, I just needed to do some information collection.
Source material, popularity, and sales report of the series can indicate to that direction whether there will be any season next. I can tell you that this method works in most cases.
If you go through this, you will understand whether there’s any possibility of releasing season 2.
Source Material for Made in Abyss season 2
Most anime series are adapted from source materials like light novels, manga, visual novels, or mobile games.
For Made in Abyss season 1, the main source material was the manga series.
When we go through the source material we need to look first at whether that is still ongoing. Because of which novels or manga are still going on, those anime have more probability to release another season.
Such as if the Made in Abyss manga series is present, then it may have the possibility like One Punch Man season 3. One punch man manga is not finished yet. So fans can hope to see its sequel.
Another thing we need to look into is how many volumes of manga or novels were adapted for the premiered seasons of the anime series. That’s why Overlord season 4 is showing the green light.
How Many Volumes Are There Of Made In Abyss?
The author of the manga series is Akihito Tsukushi who is still releasing it. The first and last ones were released on October 20, 2012, and July 27, 2020, respectively.
The author of the manga releases one volume every year for the last five years. So it’s very good news as the releasing rate is steady.
How Many Volumes Are Covered For Made In Abyss Season 1?
Till now, the first four volumes were used for making season 1 and if the second one comes, it will start from volume 5. As for the movie Fukaki Tamashii no Reimei, it covers almost all of volume 5.
So, in both cases, we see that from volume 6, the story is totally unrevealed.
There are still 5 volumes left to adapt for the anime series. Which is more than enough to announce the second season of the series. Also, the fan base doesn’t know about the rest of the story because no movie is covered from volume 6. So, the source material won’t be an obstacle for season 2.
Sales And Profit For Made In Abyss Season 2
When an anime fails to make a profit from its released season, then there’s no way the production committee will take a risk for a sequel. Which’s why Noragami season 3 hasn’t seen the green light yet.
So, both the anime and movie profit needs to be taken into consideration.
The Blu-ray sales of Made in Abyss are satisfactory we can say. The first season sold about 5,500 copies of disks which is not so bad. Well, above 5,000 disks sale is regarded as good in 2020. Because now the streaming platform is taking over the profit of a series.
Volume 8 was released on May 30, 2019, and was sold not so well, it was about 120,000 copies. And the latest one released in 2020 sold about 80,000. It’s the sale of the first week only.
Looking at the other manga series, the sale is not expected. We can say it’s running well. But as the story of the series is a bit different and has got tragic, so it’s okay.
But the money is not coming well from the manga series.
There are around 30 figures of the series which are mostly of Riko, Nanachi, Prushka, and Regu. The series has 300 goods in the market.
The anime along with the movie has a good amount of figures and merch and it’s making enough profit from these.
A satisfying thing is the goods are covering almost all the characters of the series. So no fans will be disappointed because they can reach their favorite characters’ through the merch.
Movie box office
The movie sold 20,000 copies in Japan. Also, the box office profit for both the anime and movie are excellent. It’s almost like the hit No Game No Life for which No Game No season 2 is more likely to be announced.
So, sales and profit information give us very good hope for the anime’s second season.
The Popularity Of Made In Abyss
In this, we will look at social media, google trends, and official websites. If the popularity drops, then the anime can face problems to have the sequel.
The official website was last updated in 2020. In their official Twitter account, they have 95,000 followers and tweets almost every day.
Made in Abyss had its peak popularity at the time of premiere but after that, it kept dropping. After the release of the movie, it got 70% of the series’ response. Now the search decreased to 30% which is good enough.
So, people are still looking for season 2 as we can see there are searches on google. It increases the possibility of the Made in Abyss sequel.
Made In Abyss Season 2 Release Date: [Update: January, 2022]
Yes, it’s already announced that there will be Made in Abyss season 2. But we don’t know when it will come out. Or will it be an anime or movie? But the production has confirmed that there will be a season 2.
It got postponed because of the pandemic and we hope that it may get released by 2022. Again I will love it more if the anime series comes. Because the information indicates there’s no reason for not having the sequel.
The Plot Of Made In Abyss
The story is about a 12 years old orphaned girl in the. There’s a giant hole called Abyss that has artifacts from a long time ago. People went there to collect the relics. But the deeper they go into the hole, the curse effect is more.
Riko’s mother Lyza had gone there and earned the “White Whistle” title. And one day a balloon containing Lyza’s discoveries reached the surface with a message that her mother was waiting at the bottom of the hole. So Riko with her robot friend Reg started their journey to find her mother.
We have come to the end of the article. I will say that Made in Abyss is an anime full of mystery that will take you to the little girl Riko’s world.
Who hasn’t watched it yet, can really watch season 1. And as fans of this anime, we can wait for Made in Abyss season 2. Because in this way or that, I really think it will come by 2022.
