netflix animated seriess exception synopsis
From Netflix, here is the official synopsis of the anime series exception:
“In the distant future, humanity has been driven from Earth and forced to relocate its population to another galaxy. Members of an exploration team are sent to search for a suitable planet 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 crewmates Nina, Mack, Patty and Oscar, he begins a countdown to the end of the mission in the terrifying darkness of the ship.”
Our take on the premise
As usual with anime content, it’s a completely original and unique idea that we don’t get in many other markets or any other form of media. Mixing sci-fi with horror always seems like a natural match – the future can be scary sometimes! Plus, there are classic examples of outstanding movies that exploit the idea of a crew discovering their stuff in outer space, from the first two Alien movies or Interstellar to Andrei Tarkovsky’s Solaris. Of course, this is an anime series, but it’s still enough to make me excited to watch it.
