Made in Abyss: Official Anthology is a collection of shorter manga works by various authors. While not canon to the main series and uninvolving its author, Akihito Tsukushi, in the creation, it is an officially licensed and sold work by the publisher of Made in Abyss, Takeshobo, and allows artists to show their different art styles with short stories. Nonetheless, Akihito Tsukushi expressed like and supported the Anthology online.[1][2] The first volume of the Anthology has been released in English, with the second and the third not yet having an English release.

The Anthology spans three volumes (called "layers"), with the first being released in 2017[3] and the second and third released in 2020.[4][5] A fourth volume has started serialization online on April 20, 2021.[6]

On December 13, 2019, Seven Seas, the official English-language publisher of the manga, announced that they have acquired the rights to the Made in Abyss Anthology and that the first volume released on September 29, 2020.[7] The release of the second and third volumes by Seven Seas is planned on June 15, 2021 and November 2, 2021.[8][9]
