This NSFW Love, Death & Robots Trailer Is Chock-full of Horny Robot Content

Do you want to watch cyborgs get busy? Then Netflix has the show for you.

We here at The Mary Sue see more than our fair share of trailers, but this might be the trailer that breaks us. Netflix’s Love, Death & Robots is an adult animation anthology series from the minds of Tim Miller (Deadpool) and David Fincher (Gone Girl). The series features 18 shorts that involve (you guessed it) death, love, and robots.

The synopsis reads, “Sentient dairy products, werewolf soldiers, robots gone wild, garbage monsters, cyborg bounty hunters, alien spiders and blood-thirsty demons from hell – all converge in eighteen NSFW animated stories.”

The first trailer was a frenetic, migraine-inducing supercut that showed off the vastly different animation styles and subject matter:

But the latest trailer (shown at the top) focuses on the “love” aspect of the series, or more appropriately, the lust section. We get a romantic overture and longing looks from the characters before the trailer devolves into some intense robot-on-robot action. Like the first trailer, this one is edited to the extreme, but we catch a glimpse of the variety of styles, from hyper-realistic 3D CGI to anime to Cartoon Network.

The series also bounces through genres, dipping into sci-fi, horror, comedy, and fantasy. Love, Death & Robots includes animation from artists across the globe, and features Topher Grace, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Gary Cole and Samira Wiley.

Miller said of the project, “Love, Death & Robots is my dream project, it combines my love of animation and amazing stories. Midnight movies, comics, books and magazines of fantastic fiction have inspired me for decades, but they were relegated to the fringe culture of geeks and nerds of which I was a part. I’m so fucking excited that the creative landscape has finally changed enough for adult-themed animation to become part of a larger cultural conversation.”

I’m curious to check out the series, but the trailers are not doing it any favors. The jumpy editing and earsplitting music really turn me off to a project that is clearly trying its hardest to be edgy. I’m on board for an adult animation anthology, but these trailers might give me a seizure. However, if you want a slower look at what the series has to offer, I’d recommend checking out their Instagram, which gives you a closer look at the animation.

So if you have a penchant for cult content, animated violence, or you just want to see some crazy robots bone down, then this is the series for you. Love, Death & Robots premieres on Netflix on March 15th.
