Netflix Debuts Exception Horror Anime Series in 2022

posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda

Netflix announced during its Netflix Festival Japan 2021 livestream, event on Tuesday that the new space horror anime Exception will debut on Netflix worldwide in 2022.

The series is based on a new story by novelist and film director Hirotaka Adachi (also known as "Otsuichi"), and it will feature character designs by Final Fantasy's Yoshitaka Amano. Adachi is also writing the script. Yūzō Satō is directing the series and Bakken Record and 5 Inc. are producing the anime.

Netflix describes the story:

In the distant future, human beings have been forced to leave earth and migrate to another galaxy. An advanced team of spacecraft arrives at a planet that is to be terraformed. Each member of the team is output by a biological 3D printer.

Netflix had announced in February 2020 that it was partnering with several creators including Otsuichi (Stare film, Goth, Calling You, Zoo) to expand its anime lineup.
