Made in Abyss — First Impressions

Little kids go treasure hunting in a brutal world.

Easily the best first episode so far of the season.

It has this chibi, cutesy art work, combined with gorgeous backgrounds and an absolutely brutal world. I love how it has the cutesy exterior but some hints that things are actually pretty dark. Everyone almost dying in the first few minutes, the fact that they live in an orphanage with parents who had their same job, the torture instruments casually scattered about the main characters room, and the hinted at past punishments make me quite curious. Reminds me of Narutaru and Higurashi a bit.

Totally psyched for the rest of this.
