A completely original CG anime, Obsolete is set in a world where aliens have made contact with humanity in 2014 for trade. In exchange for limestone, the aliens offer self-aware robots known as Exoframes. Cheaper than aircraft, tanks, or guns, and easily operable by anyone, Exoframe technology is set to change the world…
Obsolete streams via Bandai Namco Arts Channel on YouTube from 8:00 pm JST on Dec. 3.
