The Made In Abyss Season 2 Episode 12 release date is at 2:30 PM EST on September 28, 2022.
The official website for the anime adaptation of Akihito Tsukushi’s Made in Abyss sci-fi, adventure, dark fantasy manga released a synopsis of the upcoming finale for the second season. The Made in Abyss Season 2 Episode 12 and 13 trailer PV and screenshots highlight some of the exciting events which will occur.
Made in Abyss Season 2’s finale will be a double episode (the first season also ended with a double episode). Fans have been hungry for more Made in Abyss since there was no new episode last week, and we were left with Faputa trying to decide her own value and trying to determine what her wish/desire is.
The upcoming episode is titled “Gold” – which could be a reference to the golden wish-granting eggs, or “cradles of desire”.
What is the plot of Made in Abyss “Gold”?
The episode begins with Riko, Reg, and Nanachi evacuating with Magickaja and the others through the collapsing Hollow Village.
On their way out they end up stumbling upon a prone Wazukyan, who is unable to move due to over-using his powers. Wazukyan takes that opportunity to question Riko whether or not she is happy she came there and then explains what he wishes to accomplish.
From the screenshots, we can deduce that Riko comes to a decision to fight using the power of her white whistle Prushka.
After Riko uses Prushka, Reg appears to heal from his injuries and gets a power-up. Who will Reg be fighting? Faputa? Or the monsters that stand in their way?
Meanwhile, Faputa is dealing with the emotional aftermath of having been exposed to the memories of her mother and her friends’ adventure through the Abyss. She continues to think about what her true value is and what her real wish is.
Faputa is forced to battle against the creatures that attack the village because if they steal away her prey, aka the villagers, then she will lose her purpose and no longer have any value.
The final screenshot shows a crying Vueko cradling something to her chest – a dead child? A newborn child? It’s hard to say if this is something Faputa is remembering from the past or how the episode might end.
