Cyberpunk Edgerunners Trailer Reveals First Look At Netflix Anime (VIDEO)
As the streaming wars grow only more competitive and crowded, the major streaming services have looked to video game franchises give them an edge against their rivals. Netflix has especially been early and prolific in adapting video game franchises to films and tv series for their platform. While their biggest success has been with The Witcher live-action series, they have found animation to be a consistent path for bringing video game stories to life. While Cyberpunk 2077 as a video game has had some questionable results, it did help bring the franchise to the forefront of culture again. Now, Netflix has revealed the anime with the first Cyberpunk Edgerunners trailer.
Netflix has released their first Cyberpunk Edgerunners trailer on their official YouTube channel. The series will be set in the world of the video game, though it will mostly focus on original new characters. The trailer mainly focuses on David, a streetkid trying to survive on the streets of Night City and Lucy, a netrunner who is part of a crew of edgerunners that David will join.
The limited 10-episode anime series is being created by Studio Trigger, in partnership with CD Projekt Red. The project will see CD Projekt Red’s Rafal Jaki as showrunner and executive producer, along with Satoru Homma, Bartosz Sztybor and Saya Elder as producers. Plenty of anime veterans are also on hand for the project. Gurren Lagann and Kill la Kill’s Hiroyuki Imaishi will direct the series along with creative director Hiromi Wakabayashi. Little Witch Academia’s Yoh Yoshinari will serve as character designer and animation director. Masahiko Otsuka and Yoshiki Usa will pen the adapted screenplay. The original score will be composed by Akira Yamaoka who has provided the music for games in the Silent Hill series. The anime looks quite stunning and evokes many of the elements from the games. Hopefully this anime doesn’t have numerous bugs to work out before and after it launches.
