Teased at Geeked Week in 2021, we’ve waited a whole year to learn more about Otsuichi’s exciting horror sci-fi anime, Exception. First look images have been revealed by Netflix during Geeked Week 2022, showcasing some of Yoshitaka Amano’s incredible character designs. Here’s everything we know so far about Exception season 1 on Netflix.
Otsuichi (the award-winning author of ZOO and Goth) created Exception, a Japanese Netflix Original animated horror-sci-fi series.
Exception's characters were designed by Yoshitaka, the Japanese artist who created the stunning art for Final Fantasy. Amano also worked on Japanese media. He collaborated with Neil Gaiman to create Sandman: The Dream Hunters. A Bram Stoker Award was awarded for this collaboration.
During Netflix’s Geeked Week event in 2021, the upcoming anime horror Exception was revealed.
It’s been a year since the announcement was made and we finally have our first look at Exception.
Netflix has provided the synopsis of Exception:
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.
We have our first images of the anime but we’re still waiting for Netflix to reveal who the cast members are.
It’s our expectation that we’ll learn of the Japanese dub cast before the English dub cast is revealed.
We’re hoping to learn more soon.
Despite the first glimpse of the images from Exception, Netflix is yet to announce when horror anime will be available.
There’s a chance we could see Exception on Netflix before the end of 2022. A more realistic release date is 2023.
