Anime is that source of entertainment that truly has no limit. You can imagine a dragon falling down a rollercoaster while a fairy rushes to save him, and boom, you have it on the screen.

These creatures were not only haunting the entire children in their school but also were disturbing the peace of the entire town. But given the fact that there is urbanization going on in the surrounding area and the building is getting broken, these ghosts are releasing one after the other.

This is why the Cave Raiders, a popular group of hunters, try to get these special items from here. What they do not realize is, the spot is weirdly dangerous and might even cost their life. Even the humans who manage to return from this place are not safe. It is because of the Curse of the Abyss. It happens to be a mysterious manifestation that attaches to the people. The effect of this curse actually depends upon the depth a person is willing to go.
These curses actually increase on going inside. There are some of the Cave Raiders who are awarded the legendary title of White Whistles. Lyza, the mother of Riko, happened to bag one of these. As of right now, Lyza is considered given that she took her last descent into the abyss. This is when we see that Riko wants nothing else but to follow her mother and become a White Whistle himself.
