Studio Trigger's 'Cyberpunk: Edgerunners' Anime Series Full Trailer
"Welcome to Night City… where chrome exceeds the flesh." This looks totally nuts!! Netflix has debuted the full-length official trailer for an epic futuristic anime series titled Cyberpunk: Edgerunners. Inspired by and also co-developed by the video game studio CD PROJEKT RED, based on the game Cyberpunk 2077, this new sci-fi anime series will feature 10 episodes set in a cyberpunk dystopian future. In a new dystopia riddled with corruption and cybernetic implants, we follow a talented but reckless street kid named David Martinez. The series tells a standalone, 10-episode story is about this kid trying to survive in Night City — a technology and body modification-obsessed city of the future. Having everything to lose, he stays alive by becoming an edgerunner — a mercenary outlaw also known as a cyberpunk. Written and produced by P.T. Adamczyk. There's still no official voice cast announced yet, despite the character intros in the trailer. This looks awesome in about 100 ways!! A bit of Akira, a bit of "Snow Crash", a bit of Blade Runner, with heaps of Cyberpunk 2077 mania thrown into this gnarly sci-fi anime series with a whole bunch of wild characters.
