Set in the near future in Japan, year 2035. A major incident was known as "Burst" which was caused by researching artificial life. A certain AI called "Matter" has eroded the Kurobe Gorge. Entering the research city, which has been called as humanity's last hope, has been prohibited by the government.

Two years later, Aiko Tachibana, a 15-year-old girl who lost her family from the incident, was told by a transfer student named Yuuya Kanzaki the truth that Aiko didn't know regarding a secret hidden within her body. The key to solve the mystery is said to be in the Primary Point, the center of Burst. When a boy and a girl, who bears the future of humanity, meet, what will be the new truth?

A.I.C.O. Incarnation is another fun sci-fi romp in Netflix's catalog, a solid addition to the thriller genre. It's an old school thrill ride full great action sequences, exciting twists, an exhilarating soundtrack, a good protagonist, and a story with a surprising amount of depth.

In the near future in a city known for its advanced researching facilities, a catastrophe known as the “Burst” puts a swift end to the city’s utopian-like harmony. This catastrophe creates a giant mass of red matter that wreaks havoc on the outskirts of the city, killing many people.

Through some relatively wordy exposition, we learn that researchers experimenting with artificial life read more

A.I.C.O. Tells the story of Japan being overrun with "matter", a sort of abstract material that destroys everything in it's path. The story is a bit generic but the pacing make's up for that. The biggest issue I had with this anime was the main character; Tachibana, Aiko. it's not that she lacks depth, it's the way she reacts to every situation. It's like she was made to be shocked at every turn. And it gets tiresome fast. The best aspect of the anime is the artwork. The elegant animations and fast pace of the series is what kept the two dimensional characters in check read more

If you wondering what episode 12 try to tell you must be like trying to put in all the plot and stories that been happening so far to fully understand what it tries to imply. Episode 12 is like a puzzle that the creator lets you try to find out what it means by yourself. I won't tell you the answer, the true meaning of the ending cause it will count as a spoiler which I don't want to do that at all.

The stories are kinda interesting. Some people will say it like Akira the movie but at the same time, it isn't. This isn't read more

This show is a good example of how important good characters are. A.I.C.O.: Incarnation is visually fantastic with an intriguing story, but it falls flat when it comes to characters.

Not only does it fail to properly introduce them, but each and every one of them are so badly written it's pathetic.
For starters, we are given no reason to care about any of them. There are a few "emotional" scenes in this show that are clearly supposed to be tearjerkers, including a death and some drama. But, listen, nobody's going to cry over a character they don't care about!
