    This comment is probably gonna get lost in the soup, but whatever;
    I was lucky enough to contribute a tiny bit towards this season of Made in Abyss, and the love the show is getting is incredible. I was a fan of season 1 when it came out, and being able to have worked on season 2 was a huge point of personal pride, and seeing everyone loving it is equally incredible. I only put a little bit of work into the show but it makes me insanely proud to see where it is and how it's moving people. Anime of the year hands down, great work Gigguk.

      holy shit dude! even if its only a little bit u have contributed to one of the best anime series of all time, congratulations honestly. initially i started watching MiA after only having seen a couple of frames of it in some video and i thought "hmm, looks quite good, imma give it a watch". needless to say it quickly stole my heart and it is still one of my favourite stories of all time. thank you for your contribution o7

    The real winner this year imo were the soundtracks. Between The Witch from Mercury, Kongming, Lycoris Recoil, AOT, Bocchi, Edgerunners, and Made in Abyss... damn, some of them actually give me chills and get me teary. }

      @Minstrel Blood hmm, disagree 🤷🏻‍♂️. I loved Chainsaw Man's ost, but the only song I even downloaded was the OP. I've had Bocchi on repeat since episode 2 lol. But that's all subjective anyway, it just so happens that the songs in Bocchi hit all the marks for me

I walked into the anime with the notion "oh, this is just another anime portraying adulthood life stage through children-like characters" I was right but yet so wrong. To all you newcomers to this anime, don't be scared!!!

    Man Gigguk's literature teachers throughout his student years must've been reading fire after fire whenever they tell him to make an essay. Everything in this list is amazingly descriptive of what it is and the emotions you'll feel when viewing it, to the point that it feels like I've already watched the anime despite not even seeing a single episode about it. A true blessing to the anime community indeed.

    DoomSlinger 22 days ago +5

    The best description I can give of Made in Abyss, especially season 2, is that it's a show that forces you to confront the natural suffering of life, and come to terms with it. That's the most accurate description of the emotions it invokes that I can come up with.

    Having watched only season one of Made in Abyss (an unforgettably intense and bizarrely wonderful experience), I closed my eyes and only listened to Gigguk's description for the second season. His description, as well as the overlay of an emotional Kevin Penkin tune that I'd never heard before, compelled me to tears because they elicited all of those emotions that I felt years ago when I saw the original season. The despair, the hope, the trauma, the love, and the delicate dance that intertwines those themes came through in this video, even with my eyes closed.
    I now know what I'm watching tonight. I need to stretch my emotional legs and hop onto the Made in Abyss feels-train once again. I know that it'll hurt, but that's what makes Abyss so special.
    Thanks, Garnt.

    Made in Abyss is truly a masterpiece and the fact that even after all it's horrors it still comes out without you feeling any hate towards any of its characters in season 2 is truly remarkable. I still feel for vieko and faputa. And vieko is one of my fav character in all anime.

    Seeing Made in Abyss, a show that I started with the Manga, going to watch season 1, and after giving up on a season 2, actually getting it, and having all the emotions and immersion of it even after reading the manga beforehand, I still felt like it was the first time seeing it. Truly a masterpiece that deserves the first place. Well done Gigguk

  • Andy's Amateur Adventures

    My whole time watching this list I was like "where's Made in Abyss?" I lost hope because NOBODY seems to rate it highly, especially since it wasn't on C-roll. Then it came out in the #1 on the list and I'm like FUCK YEAH!!!! LET'S GO BOY!!!!!! Can't wait for the manga to start going at ch 64 again.

    The world cup was legit the most fun I’ve had watching anything on TV in like the past 3 years. Glad you brought it up, because it really was more anime than anime itself. We got Japan as the hardcore underdog that turns it around at the last second against amazing teams like something out of old school inazuma 11. We got the favorites like Portugal losing to relatively new but history-making teams like Morocco, and we got the Rocky Balboa of football, Messi himself, at likely his final world cup, finally bringing home the only award he didn’t have and the one he always cared about the most. Also that final match was legit the best world cup match ever played: unexpected beginning, mid-game frustration, the lategame comeback, 2 great extra time halves with some of the best moments in the entire competition (eg: Emi Martinez’s last minute save with his leg), Mbappe getting to show his worth as one of the future greats by scoring a hat trick in the world cup final and keeping france in the game, and then the tense penalties where Emi Martinez again shows his worth and manages to win it for Argentina after the Argentinian players scored. Also the redemption for Montiel who was the reason France got a penalty by having him be the one to win Argentina the cup in penalties. Plus the celebration afterwards outdid any celebration ever portrayed in anime. All around a great fucking time to be an Argentina and Messi fan.

      It is such a shame that the prelude to the World Cup saw such controversy, only to be followed by one of the most entertaining world cups in years. It was so great, and yet I could never not feel sorry for all those workers that died for a minimal wage giving us entertainment.

    Gigguk's ability to take you on a journey of emotions by music and editing choices alone is absolutely insane. Went from laughing uncontrollably, to being near tears remembering certain events from certain episodes, all crafted by the experience mostly found in the music and scenes chosen.

    • CyAA 0627
      CyAA 0627 Month ago

      ​@Kapra Tako completely disagree with you on this. the only reason why a majority of people here in gigguk's video appear to be agreeing with them is because it's actually more rare to find made in abyss appreciation in the grander sphere of otakus/anime fans. Made in Abyss is still SMALL in comparison to a lot of mainstream anime, and Gigguk's video is a refuge for the people who actually watched it.
      scroll down and you'd still see people asking 'where is attack on titan, bleach, etc", because those are the mainstream ones. but i bet if another Crunchyroll or mainstream poll comes along and these popular animes get recognize and not Made in Abyss, I'm willing to bet MiAbyss fans would be completely absent due to the nature of this ecosystem.
      Made in Abyss is not a sure win because it's a taste not for everyone. Were not here to shove it down your throat but atleast give the show and the fans the recognition they deserve.

    I never recommend anime after watching just one episode. The only time I broke that rule was when I watched Made in Abyss season 1. I had been waiting for Kevin Penkin soundtrack for many years. When I saw the first episode of season 2, I thought to myself dude this is a masterpiece-its just perfect! I believe Made in abyss is probably not for everyone but if you like it, you like it. I don't have any doubts that its a masterpiece. And if you love anime, you need to support such artists. Shout out to Muse YT channel for supporting and free streaming Made In Abyss S2. And as always to my favorite YT anime reviewer Gigguk, keep it rolling brother!

      @Robert Laidlaw Abyss is very unlike any other anime, it really does stand out on its own. So if you dislike tired clichés in anime, it could be a good choice. It's a very good fantasy adventure/Sci fi, but also delves heavily into themes about morality and the nature of humanity.
      Watch the first 3 episodes of season 1 and it should be a good litmus test for you.

      @Beast It is a truly unique adventure show, filled with the spirit of awe, discovery, longing. The Abyss itself works by bizarre rules, and yet it feels like a real place. In fact, the show is grounded in realism and is not for the faint of heart. There are depictions of immense suffering, physical and emotional. Be warned and tread with care.

    I just have to comment because of the last part or just the entire video in general. How you described Made In Abyss or other Anime like Summer Time Rendering, and even other previous Anime from similar videos like Mushoku Tensei genuinely got me invested, intrigued and mesmerized. There has always been an effect on me whenever someone describes a piece of media they love and expressing the power of that show, that music, etc. It's something I praise when I see people like you do it because it manages to capture an audience and let them know, even for a second, your love, your feelings on this show. It hypes me up, it makes me excited, it scares me, it makes me cry, and it makes me shut up and truly take something like a simple raw explanation of a show with the utmost seriousness. These explanations of these Anime, even if I've never seen them make me feel so much happiness, that's the beauty of Anime videos, video essays for me. It can be fun and exciting but truly beautiful with the most genuine and sincere expression translated to words to convey the feeling the piece of media you watched gave you, with the right editing, etc. It's what makes me want to express myself out there as I have a pretty uneventful, nothing life I don't like and want to escape through Anime. It's one of the things right now that makes me so god damn happy and sad, and just so many other different emotions. Please make more stuff like this it's genuinely amazing and I love it.
