Sentai Filmworks announced that the first ‘Made in Abyss’ compilation anime film, ‘Journey’s Dawn’, will be coming to the U.S. on March 15. That’s the good news. It’s even better news if you live in Los Angeles, otherwise, it’s not so good news for you.
The film will make it’s U.S. premiere at the Regal Cinema and will host the film’s director, Masayuki Kojima, composer Kevin Penkin, music producer Hiromitsu Iijima, and producer Shinpei Yamashita.
If you’re feeling down about not living in Los Angeles, there is no need to panic as Sentai Filmworks has announced that they will screen both compilation films in U.S. theaters this year. When they will do that remains to be seen. My guess will be sometime after March 15. Just an internet anime pundit’s opinion.
The official English title for the first compilation film will be Made in Abyss: Journey’s Dawn.
Sentai Filmworks described the film as follows:
The enigmatic Abyss is an unforgiving and deadly place. Despite the dangers, it still captures the imagination of explorers such as Riko who wishes to follow in her mother’s footsteps and trains hard to become a Cave Raider. One day, she receives news that her mother died in the Abyss, yet a mysterious note tells Riko that her mother may still be alive. Vowing to uncover the truth about her mother’s fate, Riko embarks on a journey with a humanoid robot boy name Reg. Together, they will discover if they have what it takes to survive where so many others have perished.
