One of the most acclaimed anime of recent years is Made in Abyss—what starts as a childhood adventure turns into something more meaningful and far darker than perhaps many viewers had expected. Today, Team FtK jumps into this new classic episode by episode—we encourage you to check it out even if you haven’t seen the series for the many interesting themes the trio discuss, but to also perhaps come back to this episode after watching it and see if your thoughts match theirs, and to comment below if you wish to discuss.

And we want your feedback as well! Each week we’ll ask a question on the podcast and feature your answers the next time that team rolls around. Here’s this week’s CQ (Cast Question): If you’re able to keep a loved one alive by whatever means necessary (mechanical / ventilator dependency)—even if he or she is suffering—would you do it? And also, what would you want for yourself?
- The group mentioned Alita: Battle Angel, and indeed, we did review the film
- We also reviewed the Made in Abyss film
- Check out this sweet fanart of John Cho as Spike—it’s the piece that one of our CQ responders refers to when she says she can now “see it.”
