Watch the trailer for the upcoming animated adaptation of The Three-Body Problem

In case the audio adaptation Liu Cixin's award-winning sci-fi novel The Three-Body Problem wasn't enough to hold you over until the release of the upcoming Netflix adaptation, the Chinese streaming platform Bilibili is releasing its own anime-style adaptation, due out next month. Author Liu sounds excited about this particular version, saying in a press release:
