Made in Abyss Season 2: It’s franchise’s performance till now
While analysing some important factors that affect the performance of any show like the popularity, source material and the sales of a series, revealed why some of the series got a sequel like Made in Abyss and why some didn’t. Even though Made in Abyss was officially announced the only way to discover the likelihood of a sequel is by looking at all these factors of any series.
Let’s have a look at all these factors to evaluate the success of Made in Abyss franchise.
Based on the performance of source material of the series
Most anime series are harmonized from already existing source materials like manga, light novels, manhwa, visual novels and mobile games because it helps benefit the popularity and sales of the source material.
Thus, like hundreds of anime series, Made in Abyss is also adapted from the manga. Now if the manga is still ongoing, it boosts the possibilities of a sequel. However, if the manga has ended, then there is no purpose left for a sequel to pan out. Also, the number of volumes used to adapt the anime series plays a significant part in the making of a continuation.
Made in Abyss is a still ongoing manga with nine volumes released in Japan till now. The last volume was released in 2020 maintaining the average release rate of the manga that is one volume per year. This has been the release pace for the last 5 years and even though it is a little less, it’s constant.
With covering the first four volumes, season one was first premiered in 2017 and won many awards including the best anime series . After that, the Made in Abyss movie covered what was left of volume 4 and the whole volume 5. That means the rest four volumes will be covered in Made in Abyss season 2.
Based on the performance of sales and profit earned from the series
Profit and sales hold a significant tole in affecting the performance of any series. If the show wasn’t successful enough in season one or there was no gain at all then that gives up no reason for the production team to contemplate creating a second season.
However, Made in Abyss anime and movie were quite successful in terms of sales and profit. Made in Abyss merchandise is doing extremely well with 30 figures and 300 goods. Also, the movie was a blockbuster earning 6 million dollars in the box office which was quite a shock as anime movies are not as famous as others.
Also, the Blu-ray sales were satisfactory as well. Though the manga sales were less than expected, it’s okay if we consider the fact that only one volume is released per year. Nevertheless all-around, the franchise makes a lot of money.
