Finally, if you’re in Tokyo from March 19 to 25, you can stop by Kokusai-Tenjijō Station, which serves Tokyo Big Sight, to see a large Made in Abyss poster made up of individual frames from the series. Tokyo Big Sight will host AnimeJapan from March 22 to 25.

Made in Abyss was a 13-episode series that aired from July to September last year. Here’s how Sentai Filmworks describes it:

The “Abyss” is the last unexplored region, an enormous and treacherous cave system filled with ancient relics and strange creatures. Only the bravest of adventurers can traverse its depths, earning them the nickname, “Cave Raiders.” Within the depths of the Abyss, a girl named Riko stumbles upon a robot who looks like a young boy. Tantalized by the Abyss, Riko and her new friend descend into uncharted territory to unlock its mysteries, but what lies in wait for them in the darkness?
