Made in Abyss Episode 10: Turning it up


It seems like the "fun" is over now. Sure, Riko and Reg have been in danger before now, but this week's episode really sold the harshness of the Abyss. It went to a level I really didn't expect, one that I admittedly had some difficulty watching. But we've heard so much about the dangers of the Abyss...it's about time it delivered on these inexperienced cave raiders.

I just wanted to make a quick note on this scene. Since it's a Japanese scene, I might be reading too much into it, but it worked as foreshadowing for me. Vinegar is typically associated with a sour taste, and you can kinda say this episode is where things went sour. Vinegar is also fermented, so maybe it's universal enough as a concept.

I really don't have much to say about Riko's suffering...it was pretty gruesome.

But overall, I guess all of this torment is meant to give Nanachi a way into the cast by saving the day. I don't think she could have come at a better time. Given that she's been surviving in the fourth layer alone, she must be skilled. Adding her to the group makes their trip way more believable.

I'm curious about her statement regarding the Curse, though. She made it sound like she's able to "see" the Curse's influence. I wonder that's supposed to mean. Anyway, maybe we'll find out next week.
