This article discusses the Netflix anime series exception, including the release date, time, synopsis, voice cast, and how to watch online.

Netflix is ramping up its output of anime content, and its latest entry is the new series exception, which is based on a new story by Hirotaka Adachi (aka “Otsuichi“). If you haven’t heard of it, here are some details about it that might catch you up to speed.

Netflix anime series exception synopsis

From Netflix, here’s the official synopsis of anime series exception:

“In the far future, humanity has been driven from Earth and forced to move its population to another galaxy. Members of a scouting team are sent to search for a planet suitable for terraforming. The crew is created through a biological 3D printer, but a system malfunction causes one of the crew members, Lewis, to emerge in a deformed state. As Lewis turns on his fellow crew members Nina, Mack, Patty and Oscar, a countdown to the end of the mission begins in the frightening darkness of the ship.”

Our opinion of the premise

As usual with anime content, it’s a completely out-there and unique idea that we are not getting in many other markets or in any other forms of media. Mixing science-fiction with horror always seems like a natural fit — the future can be scary at times! Moreover, there are classic examples of outstanding movies that exploit the idea of a crew figuring their stuff out in outer space, from the first two Alien movies or Interstellar to even Andrei Tarkovsky’s Solaris. Granted, this is an anime series, but it’s still enough to get me excited about watching it.
