Made in Abyss Season 2 Story
Made on the manga of the same name this show pays much significance to the Abyss in the town of Orth. There are raiders of different levels that go inside the cave. The cave’s depth is divided into various levels. The raiders get ranked on the basis of the level they have descended till.
The reason for the descend is to recover the relics and ancient artifacts and bring them up to the ground for keepsake or sale. The real issue is the curse that the abyss puts on the raider while he/she is ascending. While coming up the curse can be something little or something that changes your appearance or the way you perceive the world or feel or it can be something fatal.
The show has various characters that have such curses. Riko is the central character of the show. Riko wants to follow her mother’s steps and become a successful raider.
Riko was born to Lyza in the cave and while ascending was saved by Lyza from fatal curses but still has a permanent one that she shall get a headache if she looks at the world without crystal glasses. As an orphan, she lives in the Belchero orphanage and has made some friends there. She and her friends raid the abyss but are asked to give up the relics they find so that they can be sold and money can be earned to run the orphanage.
But Riko with her friends has kept with them some items that they thought are too precious or significant to give up. One of such things is the compass that they have. Through the raiding itself, she found a robot named Reg in the second layer of the abyss and brought him home. The robot lost all his ability to remember his past hence he stays with Riko at the orphanage now.
He has a special helmet and an extending arm that can emit rays powerful enough to melt a stone. Apart from this Riko also has a friend Nanachi who is a raider. He used to be a human child but then he was sent into the abyss and while returning he became a hollow with rabbit-like features.
He also met a girl Mitty while raiding who went a little too deep on the instruction of their senior and thus when she ascended her body was just a lump of flesh and had just one eye. She lost all ability to feel things and is immortal. Nanahi also accompanies Riko on raids.
