Should You Watch The Made In Abyss Movies And Shorts?

Lots of anime series make it so that only the seasonal episodes are required watches. They just make movies, OVAs, and shorts as non-cannon side stories. Do Made In Abyss’s movies and shorts share the same fate?

You can either skip the first two movies or watch them and then skip Season 1. These two movies are simply retellings of the first season. There are a few different scenes, but you won’t miss anything crucial by skipping one or the other. Although, the season does offer better exposition and world-building if you don’t mind the longer watch time.

However, you must not skip Movie 3. Dawn Of The Deep Soul is not a recap; it is a completely canon story that takes place between the first and second seasons. It tells the entire story of the children’s journey through the Abyss’s fifth layer, so the events that happen here are pretty important.

The shorts are totally skippable. They’re only about 12 minutes in total, but if you’re really pressed for time, you won’t miss any major plot points by skipping them.


Where Can You Watch Made In Abyss?

You can watch different entries of the show through different streaming services.

Season 1 is on Crunchyroll, HIDIVE, and Netflix, depending on your region.

Season 2 is available on tons of platforms. Among the most well-known ones are Crunchyroll, HIDIVE, Disney+, Bilibili, and the Muse Asia YouTube channel.

As for the three movies, you can find them all on HIDIVE.

For fans determined to watch the shorts, they come bundled in with the Blu-ray release of Made in Abyss Movie 3: Dawn of the Deep Soul. That’s the only way you can legally watch them right now.

It’s currently unknown where the next season will go, but from the looks of the previous entries, HIDIVE is the most likely candidate.
