“They were mean to robots and then robots killed them!” a familiar looking character cackles in the official trailer for ‘LOVE DEATH + ROBOTS VOLUME 3’. The award winning Netflix animated anthology is back with 9 new shorts and they all look freaking amazing, at least in the trailer. The teasers for all nine stories play against a haunting rendition of Beethoven’s ‘Für Elise’, creating just the right kind of intrigue around them.
Death, Dystopia, Steampunk, Space-travel seem to be the dominant themes again and the distinct art styles of different creators makes this series just as exciting as ever. The animation quality looks top-notch like its predecessors and there’s a little something for all kind of animation fans, right from fantasy to history and horror (maybe just not some good-old romance). If you’ve seen volume 1 and 2, you already know what to expect. One short is titled ‘Night of the Mini Dead’, which has the horror fan in me completely whipped.
The series is out on May 20 on Netflix. Trailer below.
