Dreams are doomed to die in Night City, a futuristic Californian metropolis. As a teenager living in the city's slums, David Martinez is trying to fulfill his mother's lifelong wish for him to reach the top of Arasaka, the world's leading security corporation. To this end, he attends the prestigious Arasaka Academy while his mother works tirelessly to keep their family afloat.

When an incident with a street gang leaves David's life in tatters, he stumbles upon Sandevistan cyberware—a prosthetic that grants its wearer superhuman speed. Fueled by rage, David implants the device in his back, using it to exact revenge on one of his tormentors. This gets him expelled from the academy, shattering his hopes of ever making his mother proud.

After witnessing David's newfound abilities, the beautiful data thief Lucyna "Lucy" Kushinada offers to team up with him, handing him a ticket to salvation. However, associating with Lucy introduces David to the world of Edgerunners—cyborg criminals who will break any law for money. Edgerunners often lose their lives, if the cyberware does not break their minds first; but in his fight for survival inside a corrupt system, David is ready to risk it all.

[Written by MAL Rewrite]


Cyberpunk: Edgerunners is based on the Cyberpunk 2077 video game by CD Projekt Red. The series acts as a prequel to the game's story.

I must start by saying that Cyberpunk: Endrunners will inevitably divide opinions because it is a non-originally Japanese work, part of the direction is not Japanese, so the general vision is not Japanese.
At first this is a problem, because a lot of people LOVE the local culture and how they approach each other. Considering this, the script is by far better than 90% of the anime already made and that will be made. But isn't that an exaggeration? Yes! It is indeed an exaggeration, but based on statistics. Cyberpunk uses oriental anime formulas, but has no shame in showing what should be shown and doing ...

Mixed Feelings
This is my first review on here but I had to write one for this show. The first episode of this show is god tier. So much potential, animation is exquisite, plot is set up b-e-a-u-tifally, characters are both intriguing and interesting...and then episode 2 says "hey remember all that shit you cared about in episode one? Well fuck that we're going a different direction.". I don't understand why they made this the way they did, maybe people who played Cyberpunk 2077 would feel different but if this is your first and only foray into this world I'd guess you'd feel ...

I only finished this series because I'd seen so many people online saying it was amazing and emotional. Found myself incredibly mystified, because all the other series I've seen recommended this hard have been amazing, like, transformative, 12/10 experiences.

Watching this felt like... if a nightmare were boring and predictable.

I never found myself caring about any of the characters or anything that happened in the world.
For full disclosure, I was watching it dubbed due to the friend I was watching it with being dyslexic. It's not impossible that the Japanese audio had absolutely incredible vocal performances that pull the heartstrings despite the awful writing they were ...
