TL;DR Review

Love, Death & Robots (stylized as LOVE DEATH + ROBOTS) is an American adult animated anthology television series on Netflix.

Though officially, this isn’t an anime. I feel its art and theme matches that of what I love about anime.

I came into this series blind, knowing nothing of it except it was on Netflix. After watching the first episode “Sonnie’s Edge”, I was hooked and could not stop watching the rest of the season. Granted it is only 185 minutes long, so more akin to a movie length feature.

The 3D CGI are amazing and came very close, if not at that uncanny valley level. If I provides you with some screenshots from certain episode, it would be hard to tell if it was CGI or live action. The series animation styles, however, varied considerably between episodes. I don’t think this is a bad thing as it help break up that uncanny feeling. You can go from life-like animation to goofy cell-shading.

Though, all my personal favorite episodes (Sonnie’s Edge, Beyond the Aquila Rift, Shape-Shifters, Lucky 13, and Secret War) are the life-like animation one. Maybe it is just a coincident.

I highly recommend this series to the fans of cyberpunk and a mature theme animation. Love, Death & Robots contains graphic violence and suggestive themes/dialogs. Intended for mature audiences only.
