MADE IN ABYSS

Journey's Dawn

Riko and her plucky band of friends dream of one day becoming Cave Raiders, exalted adventurers who brave the treacherous descent into the enigmatic Abyss. 

When Riko learns about the death of her mother, she longs to discover her fate. 

With her mysterious robot friend Reg, they set out upon a harrowing, breathtaking journey into the Abyss. But they also know that those who venture into the Abyss’ dark depths sometimes never emerge. And when they do, they are forever changed.

With never-before-seen footage, exclusive interviews with Japanese creators and a behind-the-scenes look with Japanese studio Kinema Citrus, MADE IN ABYSS: Journey’s Dawn is one special event anime fans won’t want to miss.
