MADE IN ABYSS is a visually stunning, coming-of-age anime series released in 2017 on Anime Strike. The series follows the journey of an orphaned girl named Riko, who lives in a world surrounded by a massive and mysterious abyss. The abyss is filled with countless treasures, creatures, and ancient ruins, and it is widely believed that the abyss goes all the way to the center of the earth.

Riko, who dreams of becoming a legendary explorer like her mother, who had disappeared while exploring the abyss, lives in the town of Orth, which is situated on the rim of the abyss. After discovering a strange robot boy that looks like a human child, who she names Reg, in one of the abyss levels, Riko and Reg form a bond and set out on a thrilling and perilous journey to find Riko's mother and uncover the secrets of the abyss.

The series is notable for its stunning visuals, which are a visual feast for viewers' eyes. The animation, character design, and art direction are all breathtaking, and the lush background art and unique creature designs create a fantastic and immersive setting for the story.

However, MADE IN ABYSS is not just a visual masterpiece, as it also has a well-crafted and engaging story. The series does an excellent job of balancing its lighthearted and dark moments, and it does not shy away from the dangers and brutalities of exploring the abyss. The world-building is also impressive, as the show explores the different levels of the abyss, each with its distinct ecosystems and dangers. The series is both adventurous and thought-provoking, as it explores themes of growing up, sacrifice, and the pursuit of knowledge despite the risks.

The voice acting in the show is another strong point, with veteran voice actress Luci Christian delivering a standout performance as Riko. Her emotional range and ability to convey Riko's curiosity, determination, and vulnerability make her character one of the highlights of the series. Brittany Lauda also does an admirable job as Reg, capturing the character's childlike innocence and naivety, while also delivering some of the show's most emotional moments. Miyu Tomita, who plays Nanachi, a mysterious and adorable creature who becomes a companion to Riko and Reg, also delivers a standout performance.

Overall, MADE IN ABYSS is an excellent anime series that deservedly garnered critical acclaim upon its release. The show is a masterpiece of animation and storytelling, with its adventurous spirit and fascinating world-building drawing viewers into the series. The striking visuals, engaging story, and memorable characters make this a must-watch series for fans of anime and fans of adventure and fantasy stories.

MADE IN ABYSS is a series that is currently running and has 2 seasons (25 episodes). The series first aired on July 7, 2017.
