“The story revolves around an orphan girl named Riko who lives in the Belchero Orphanage, located in the town of Orth on an island in the middle of the Beoluska Sea. The town of Orth besieged a giant hole that went deep into the earth, commonly known as Abyss (Abyss). The Abyss is a gathering place of strange creatures and also contains rare relics from an ancient civilization unknown to humans, which later became a popular hunting ground for Cave Raiders, the common name of explorers who defied difficulties, hardships and dangers, to go deep into the pit and find the artifacts they found. Returning from the abyss causes more obstacles due to the “Curse of the Abyss”, causing dizziness, vomiting, body pain to death for explorers as they descend further. Some legendary Cave Raiders have fortunately returned and recounted their journey, one of them is Lyza known as the White Whistle, Riko’s biological mother.
Riko’s life aspiration is to follow in her mother’s footsteps to become a White Whistle. One day, she finds and befriends a robot boy in the Abyss, he is named Reg. Riko and her friends help Reg get into Belchero. One day, Riko read a message from Lyka that her mother was waiting for her at the bottom of the Abyss. She decides to start her journey to find her mother with Reg, saying goodbye to her friends and the whole town.”
