Space is a reliably terrifying placebut things elevate to a new level of “Oh Hell no” in Netflix anime series Exception. With Earth in the rearview mirror, a terraforming mission sets out for a distant planet, but the mission soon goes dangerously—nay, monstrously-awry. Check out the trailer here!
Here’s the official synopsis for the series, which is definitely going to mix some big questions (like “What makes a human, human?”) into its running-and-screaming-in-deep-space actions: “In the distant future, humanity has been forced to leave Earth and migrate to another galaxy. A spacecraft is sent to a planet to terraform it and the crew is created one by one by a biological 3D printer. However, a fatal error occurred during the creation of one of the members. The crew then begins to encounter a series of unpredictable events.”
Exception has an original story and story and screenplay by Hirotaka Adachi, best-known by the pen name Otsuichi (Goth, Calling You), and if the character designs catch your eye, that’s because they are by Yoshitaka Amano, an influential artist and illustrator whose credits include Speed Racer, Vampire Hunter Dthe Final Fantasy franchiseand Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman: Dream Hunters.
Exception hits Netflix October 13.
