Made in Abyss Plot
People are always curious about the unknown and strive to learn more about suspicious places that are underneath the earth. Centuries ago, the human discovered a distant island in the sea of Beoluska, with a giant hole in it.
As nature instinct goes, many people tried to find what’s underneath the hole, hoping to find treasures. As a result, more and more treasure hunters populate the area. And Cave Raiders claimed that there are indeed treasures below but the journey will be dangerous.
Cave Raiders, a title given to those who descended deeper into the hole, said that dangerous creatures are inside the pit. And can harm anyone going near. Over time, the town of Oosu appeared around the Abyss or the hole. And treasure hunters still haven’t reached the bottom of it.
The story follows the journey of a 12-year-old girl named Riko, who is an orphan in Oosu. Like many children with parents that attempted to go beyond the pit and disappeared, they grew up in an orphanage. Before anyone can be allowed to descend into the Abyss, a rank called White Whistle must be given.
At the beginning of the story, Riko is only a Red Whistle, but she couldn’t wait until she can descend for 100 feet below the surface. One day, like an accident, Riko met a Cyborg named Reg. Who rescues her from danger. Reg accompanied her to the journey going deeper and deeper inside the mysterious Abyss.
Made In Abyss Characters
The main character of this television show is Riko, the 12-year-old orphan from the town Oosu. Her mother disappeared when she was two years old, that’s why she lived with other children in the Belchero orphanage. Her mother is quite famous, being the Annihilator or a White Whistle. Riko is an only child and her father died long before her mother went missing in the expedition.
Riko’s appearance is typical, with green eyes and long blond hair. As a young girl, she had tied her hair into two ponytails. Moreover, Riko always wears an eyeglass and a head protector while exploring the Abyss.
Her dream is to become a White Whistle so she can explore the pit and find her mother. As a young girl, Riko is playful, cheerful, and energetic. She is smart and easily thinks of solutions when a problem is encountered. Her best qualities include being rational and keeping her cool even under pressure.
Reg is a robot that appears to be a little boy. He cannot recall vital information about his past and origins. His name was given by Riko after her dog’s name. As a robot, Reg has an artificial body and completely immune to the curse of the Abyss. This is a powerful phenomenon, it creates severe symptoms like dizziness, nausea, intense body pain, loss of senses and even death. This curse has been the reason why countless treasure hunters disappeared.
Most commonly referred to as the ‘Treasure Of The Deep’, Reg is an actual Interference Unit of the lower layers. He has tanned skin and dark hair. Just like Riko, he wears a metal helmet with two asymmetrical horns out of its sides. There is also what appears to be a glass lens in front of the helmet.
When it comes to his personality, Reg is a bit unassertive and naïve. He blushes easily and often cries when in stressful situations. In the event that he is forced into danger, Reg shows irritation and is hot-tempered compared to Riko’s analytic role. Despite all his imperfections, Reg swears to protect Riko and he will not hesitate to put on a fight when she is in danger.
The orphanage where Riko and other children are staying is at Belchero. This name came from the director itself in the same name, who imposes strict rules in the academy. Her appearance shows his strong personality—sharp eyes, gaunt face and angry brows. As the authority figure in the orphanage, Belchero makes it a point to lecture the children from time to time and impose new rules for the sake of the children’s safety.
Belchero teaches the kids about the Abyss. That it is dangerous for people to explore. In addition to Abyss’ education, she also teaches the kids other subjects.
Another figure in the Belchero Orphanage is Jiruo, who teaches kids how to behave properly and provide valuable advice. He is very supportive of the kids at the orphanage. And even gives his best to support Riko after her mother’s whistle was brought back to the surface.
Jiruo is a Moon Whistle Delver. This type of title is given to individuals who carry an extensive knowledge about the Abyss. Because of their broad knowledge about the unknown, they serve as instructors for newer generations.
Another important character in the series is Shiggy. He studied to become a Delver at a young age and attained a rank of Red Whistle Delver in his first descent.
He becomes close to Riko after their trip to the Abyss and both return to the orphanage. He is the one responsible for causing blackouts to Reg and was later punished. Despite this, Shiggy is known to be intellectual. An important asset for everyone. He can travel to the first layer of the Abyss and likely to be a skilled Delver.
