Global streaming platform Netflix announced a new original anime series titled Exception during the fourth day of the Netflix Geeked event on Thursday. The event also announced the main staff and a teaser visual (pictured).

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. (Source: Netflix)

Yuuzou Satou (Gatchaman Crowds assistant director) is directing the space horror anime at Tatsunoko Production (Bakken Record) and 5 Inc. Novelist and live-action director Otsuichi (Adachi Hirotaka) (Goth, Kizu) is penning the original story. Yoshitaka Amano (Vampire Hunter D, Gibiate) is designing the characters.

Netflix announced last February that the company was partnering with six Japanese creators to develop new anime originals, including Otsuichi.

so like Expelled From Paradise that their minds are digital and are in The Matrix while they just 3D print a biological body on demand? sounds interesting

If this is remotely like the rest of the “anime” “originals” Netflix has put out recently (Eden and Yasuke), it’s going to be trash

Why does the premise sound like someone watched Episode 4 of Red Dwarf XI and tried to wring it into anime form?

Staff isn't much though, probably a pass unless more reassuring info comes to light.

@DatRandomDude You should have mention Yoshitaka Amano's Final Fantasy-related fame not Gibiate.
