Out Of This World Anime Aliens
Our fascination with the unknown is pervasive and widespread. From Jules Verne’s classic Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea which utilizes the unexplored depths of the Ocean to create mystery and suspense, to the sci-fi horror Alien that immerses itself in the vastness of space and introduces to the world the Xenomorph and facehugger.
Aliens are a prominent feature of these mysterious worlds, and while they can be frightening and deadly, often in anime, they are hilarious and non-threatening. Let’s go check some of them out!
