The official trailer of Made In Abyss Season 2 is out already! Click on the video to watch.
Without the second season, we will never see Riko, Nanachi, and Regu exploring Abyss’ undiscovered parts. There are many mysterious creatures and relics that this series didn’t show us yet.
If I am honest, even if I’ll be curious enough to read the manga, I’ll still wait for season 2 because the animation, voice acting, scenes, etc., sums up to be the perfect anime one can ever miss.
So the problem is that Made in Abyss Season 2 was officially announced but hasn’t in 2020, and we don’t know how long it will take.
I’ll explain everything in detail, and by the end, you will get to know about the release date of
Reasons for Made in Abyss Season 2 Release Information Explained in Parts
1. Reference for adaption
The source material of Made in Abyss is the manga.
We need to check how many manga volumes got released so far and whether the story is still ongoing. An ongoing manga will always have a better chance of receiving a second season. Thus Made In Abyss Season 2 has high chances to make it on screen.
We also need to check how many manga volumes got used for the Made in Abyss anime and movie.
There are currently nine manga volumes of Made in Abyss published in Japan, according to Wikipedia.
Made in Abyss is an ongoing series in 2020 (as expected). The last volume was released in Japan on July 27, 2020, by the author Akihito Tsukushi. English translated volume for the same will be released on March 30, 2021.
The author does write one new volume per year. The rate is steady, and like this for the past 5 years. Which is a good sign for Made In Abyss Season 2.
The first season of Made in Abyss anime adapted volumes 1-4. The movie Fukaki Tamashii no Reimei adapted 4-5. That means from manga volume 6, Made In Abyss Season 2 can continue.
2. Sales And Profit
Anime like Tokyo Ravens didn’t get a second season because it didn’t earn enough profit.
So checking the sales and profit is important as it can give us hints whether the production committee would like to invest in Made In Abyss Season 2 or not.
Made in Abyss can cost approximately 2-3 million dollars to produce Made In Abyss Season 2.
The first season of Made in Abyss sold approximately 5,500 copies per disk on average. Sales above 5,000 are regarded as really good in 2020, so I’m happy to see it did well.
Blu-Ray sales are just another sideway of profit these days since streaming took over most of the profit series. Popular series like Mob Psycho 100 will be profitable only from that, so no wonder there will be Mob Psycho season 3.
Volume 8 of Made in Abyss was released on May 30, 2019, and sold approximately 12 million copies. The latest manga volume 9 that got released in 2020 sold around 80k copies in the first week.
The manga sales are less than I expected, but I know people prefer anime over manga when it comes to series like this, so it’s okay. With just one volume per year, the manga does not make as much money as other manga in the market.
20+ figures are available for Made in Abyss, and most of them are Nanachi, Riko, Regu, and Prushka. There are also around 250+ goods for this series.
The anime and the movie got a good amount of figures and merch. I can say that the merchandise is making a nice profit, which is good for Made In Abyss Season 2.
The best thing about this anime is that all the characters are getting merch and figures. It’s not like Accel World, where Kuroyukihime receives 90% of everything, and people wonder why there is no Accel World Season 2.
The Made in Abyss movie’s box office is 6.5 million yen, which is approximately 5.8 million dollars. The film sold about 20,000 Blu-Ray copies in Japan.
So you see, the film made quite a profit just like Konosuba Season 3 chances increased a lot with a successful movie, so the same can be said for Made in Abyss Season 2.
3. Popularity Information
Popularity and fanbase are as important as sales because if an anime doesn’t have a good fan base, then the DVD and merch sales would eventually go down. Now let’s see if Made in Abyss has enough popularity or not.
The official website for Made in Abyss is active and it got last updated in 2020 with news about the movie being available in Nipponbashi, Osaka!.
The official Twitter account for this franchise with 95K followers actively tweets daily, and the recent tweet was on 4 Jan 2021:-
“You may have forgotten it, so Let me tell you again. “Made in Abyss” sequel production …! Please wait patiently.”
The popularity of Made in Abyss was quite high on October 7, 2017, and after that, it kept dropping. The movie release boosted it back at around 70%. Currently, the search volume for this anime is approximately 30%, which is fine. Usually, it drops to around only 10-20% for most series as viewers lose interest with time.
If I look at new merchandise, then it’s excellent. Made in Abyss is an anime that gets new announcements every month. The movie also boosted the merch and figures numbers, which boosted them in google trends as well. So Made In Abyss Season 2 must be out in no time.

FAQs on Made in Abyss
1. Are Narehate (Hollows) affected by the curse?
With the current information at hand (6), it seems that it’s more of a complex consciousness of human origin, and possibly of organic nature, for the curse to affect said beings which is evident by beings outside of the spectrum not being affected by the curse.
Only the Narehate, like Mitty and the one at the Altar of the Absolute Boundary, are unaffected by the curse.

Yes, it was officially announced already in 2020 and we expected it to air by mid of 2020 but due to the pandemic there’s delay in production.
