A.I.C.O. -Incarnation- is a science-fiction anime series produced by Studio Bones that premiered on Netflix last week. It tells the story of Aiko Tachibana, a high school student who lost her family in a biological experiment gone awry. I’ve watched one episode so far, and it’s intriguing. However – and I say this is a dub devotee – spare your ears some torture, and watch the sub for this one.
