[Anime] Made in Abyss

Made in Abyss

Anime

This impression is based on the first season of the show.

An imaginative horror show that initially tricks you with its cute outward appearance, but since most of its content hinges on the mystery of the Abyss, it’s pretty much useless in its current incomplete state.

It’s way too early to tell whether it’ll turn out to be amazing or will be a disappointment, so I wouldn’t really recommend picking it up until it’s finished. It honestly reminds me of the Southern Reach trilogy, and I can totally see it fizzling out in the same way.

Positive:
Negative:
Imaginative, fascinating setting
Boring, cliche characters
The mystery of the Abyss is extremely interesting
The plot feels like a simple adventure story with horror elements… so far
Lots of delicious horror scenes that don’t let the characters get off easy
So incomplete, it feels more like a trial than a full-fledged product
