It was adapted by Kinema Citrus and had thirteen episodes in 2017. This popular anime series had exceptionally good reviews from fans all over the world.
Riko is the main character of the story. She lives in Belchero Orphanage in the town of Orth. She is just 12 years old but already orphaned.
It is a strange town she’s living in described as a giant hole going deep into the earth – a weird fantasy. It is commonly called the Abyss.

On January 18, 2020, the good news was finally announced. It confirmed the hearsay and released a special announcement trailer. They showed everyone that the latest sequel’s production has started.
Could the next season have the same style as the first one? The fanbase argues whether it’s going to be a movie or not.
Because the upcoming story is going to be too vast to be clumped in one sitting and be consumed in a single film. If so, it is suggested by many that the next movie is in a series form instead.
Despite the movie having multiple sequels, the fans still craved a second season. It only debuted in 2017 but it was easy to become an anime lover’s favorite.
Season 2: Movie Production
Although Kinema Citrus finally confirmed the renewal of season 2, it is yet to start its production. There has been a delay due to a lack of source of the material.
The creators had a problem with having enough manga chapters. It was fortunate enough to release the 9th volume so they only need one more.
For you to understand, the first season of the anime covered 26 manga chapters. It was halfway through volume 4.
The Dawn of the Deep Soul movie ends with chapter 38. It featured the Bondrewd story arc. It was about a male character who has many discoveries about the Abyss.
The recently released 9th volume contained up to the 55th manga chapter. This would mean that there are 17 chapters left for the second season.
To produce season 2, Kinema Citrus needed one more manga volume. Volume 10 is expected to come out in the middle of 2021. Hence, the tenth volume should be launched before the new installment begins.
Season 2: Plot
This is so exciting! Season 2 is expected to be continuing the story of the Dawn of the Deep Soul movie, featuring the Capital of the Unreturned that is referred to as Shourou.
This is so much fun! The leading characters will be Riko, Reg, and Nanachi, who will enter the sixth layer via the altar following Minya.
The three main characters will be surprised to find themselves stuck in the Narehate Village of Ilblu which is populated by the Hollows. They will discover mysteries, terrors, and bewildering truths reaching the depths of the Abyss.
The plot is very adventurous and thrilling. Riko awakens the sixth layer and loses her company along the way.
What would you do if you were Riko? The young character searched for her company. This adventure led her to fall deep into the Village of the Hollows.
Riko was forced to make difficult decisions. How could that be? Later on, she knew about the origin story of the Village of the Hollows.
MIA Dawn of the Deep Soul: U.S. Release Date Delay

There was supposed to be an English dubbed and subbed version expected to be played in U.S. theatres. Unfortunately because of the COVID-19 outbreak, the screenings have been canceled.
Theatre screening and any other film activities are prohibited. This delays the anime movie’s debut in U.S. theatres anytime soon.
Although Sentai Filmworks has licensed the series and films for their English dubbed and subbed version to release in North America, UK, and Ireland, they still haven’t given a public announcement about when the new U.S. release date will be.
