Along with a new key visual featuring the three familiar characters, Riko, Reg, and Nanachi, the official website for the Made in Abyss anime franchise confirmed today that its second TV anime Made in Abyss: The Golden City of the Scorching Sun is set to premiere in Japan in July 2022. The second TV anime has been licensed by Sentai Filmworks.
The first TV anime inspired by Akihito Tsukushi’s fantasy adventure manga was aired for 12 episodes from July to September 2017, and its two compilation films, Journey’s Dawn and Wandering Twilight followed in January 2019. Then, an all-new film Dawn of the Deep Soul was released in January 2020.
All of the main voice cast members are set to return.
Message from Miyu Tomita (Riko):
I believe that you will be able to see Riko and her friends grow up after the first season and the film. With more new characters, it has become more lively, and I am inspired by my seniors to perform in every episode. I am very excited and at the same time really looking forward to the new season! I hope you are all looking forward to it!
Message from Mariya Ise (Reg):
Finally, the adventure to the sixth layer of the Abyss, the Golden City, is about to begin! And I’m so excited! Reg and his friends have overcome many adversities in the past…only this time…I can’t predict how it will end. I will play my part with all my heart and sincerity!
Message from Shiori Izawa (Nanachi):
Congratulations to all Abyss fans worldwide! It’s the long-awaited second season of the TV series! I can’t help but congratulate you! (laughs) I, too, am very happy to be able to return with Nanachi to continue our adventures. The story will move into a thicker and deeper abyss with new characters. Please be careful of the rising load and follow us closely to the end!
