Made in Abyss has returned for its highly anticipated second season as part of the Summer 2022 anime schedule, and has debuted a new opening theme sequence to cap it all off! This Summer in particular has been stacked with some of the biggest returns in the anime world so far, and one of the major franchises leading the pack has been Made in Abyss. Following the success of the first season, compilation films, and official film sequel with Dawn of the Deep Soul, Made in Abyss has now returned for The Golden City of the Scorching Sun as Riko and Reg continue diving further into the titular Abyss.
With Made in Abyss: The Golden City of the Scorching Sun now a couple episodes into its run for the Summer, the series has also debuted the full opening theme sequence for its new episode. This time around the opening theme is titled "Katachi" as performed by Riko Azuna, and the sequence teases not only the fact that Season 2 introduces a whole new group of characters, but also some of the intense moments that will be coming our young main characters' way as it continues. You can check out the opening theme sequence for Made in Abyss: The Golden City of the Scorching Sun below:
Made in Abyss: The Golden City of the Scorching Sun is directed by Masayuki Kojima for Kinema Citrus with Shinpei Yamashita returning as producer, Kazuchika Kise returning as character designer, Hiryuki Kurata handling the scripts once more, and Kevin Penkin returning to compose the music.
