Made in Abyss Wiki

The Forbidden Field of Flowers is the twenty-seventh chapter of the Made in Abyss manga series.


Reg confronts the Umbra Hand, who warns him to be quiet and says that these grounds are forbidden. To Reg's shock, the Umbra Hand returns the Blaze Reap to him, warns him not to lose it again, and urges him to pass the warning onto Riko and Nanachi. Nanachi wonders how Bondrewd was able to observe them, and they and Reg agree that they need more information. Reg insists on observing the Umbra Hand, who doesn't respond.

Riko notices an insect that resembles an Eternal Fortune. Reg is stunned to see the Umbra Hand was studying a Delver who is being eaten alive and nested in by the insects. The Umbra Hand explains that this is why these grounds are forbidden: the insects hide among the flowers and prey upon unsuspecting humans. Riko finds an entry in her notes that warns of the insects nesting the 6th layer, and the potential dangers of them spreading to higher layers.

The Umbra Hand says that three of their number have already been killed, including the one who found the Blaze Reap. He reveals that he sent some Moon Whistles to plant burning agents in the field, but they likely won't return, and uses a flamethrower to set the field ablaze. Reg protests, wanting to save the Delvers, but the Umbra Hand insists there is nothing else that can be done. Nanachi agrees, since they cannot protect Riko by themself. The Umbra Hand tells Reg to return to this friends, and says Bondrewd is waiting for them. The insects become active and start attacking Reg, but him being a robot protects him.

Reg apologizes to Nanachi for failing to find out how Bondrewd is observing them. Nanachi is angry at themself, because they thought their ability to see the force field meant that they could see everything. They don't like that Bondrewd is expecting not just them, but all three of the kids. The trio pauses to watch the field as it is entirely consumed in flames.
