Love, Death Robots ...



Love, Death & Robots may touch on similar themes at times, but each of these stories dofeel like their own distinct universes. Furthermore, nearly all of these stories involve robots of some kind, but the designs for these machines are all so wildly different and full of variety, which definitely helps a lot to avoid mech fatigue.




Love, Death Robots ...



As mentioned before, due to the subject matter, structure, and style, Love, Death & Robots will inevitably be compared to The Animatrix, and honestly, that feels like a more fully realized, polished version of this idea. Love, Death & Robots can technically feature an even wider variety of stories, but perhaps therein lies the problem. Topics like robots and science fiction are soexpansive that it results in stories that hit on similar ideas and some feel like echoes of each other in various respects. This series undeniably covers a lot of territory, but it still feels like there are blind spots that could have been touched on or that the narratives could have been a little more cerebral.


Worst of all, the series rarely does anything with animation that couldn't be done better in another medium. The animators may be using cutting-edge techniques, but without compelling stories or inspired images, the series is as lifeless as the robots it depicts.


The episodes vary in animation style, tone and theme, and are usually between ten and twenty minutes long. Episodes tend to be about, well, love and/or death and/or robots, covering a variety of tales about humanity and technology. Most of them are adaptations of short stories from the likes of Peter F. Hamilton, John Scalzi, Alastair Reynolds, and Joe Lansdale. Be advised that the marketing isn't lying; many of the shorts really are NSFW in content. 041b061a72
