Synopsis

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.

One of the best animr ever. It's intense, full of action and emotion. The anime is an adrenaline injection and the same time there are emotional parts that made me cry. The animation is a masterpiece, studio trigger is incredible.
The story is very surprising, you don't expect some things are going to happen with the main characters.
Cyberpunk is a very unique genre of science fiction, and I have to say, this anime has all elements of a very good cyberpunk story. We have the social critics, the femme fatale persona, the nihilist characters, the rock music, thr hight tech - low life ambience ...

Every now and then, an anime will come along that walks across a tightrope. And, depending on which angle you view it from, it either falls off spectacularly, or miraculously makes it to the other side. Cyberpunk: Edgerunners is one of those anime. And that’s because, at the end of the day, what you take from it will be highly dependent on how much you can connect with a work that is fundamentally struggling to maintain equilibrium. Or rather, wasn’t even trying to maintain it in the first place. Either because of its short ten episode run time, its roots as a spin-off to a ...

After watching Cyberpunk: Edgerunners, I can confidently say that while it starts with a lot of promise, it ultimately fails to deliver, leaving a bitter aftertaste.

The anime had a strong start, and by the time I reached the third episode, I was already hooked. The world-building was well-detailed and felt authentic. The unique art style and animation by Trigger added to the overall experience, with the dazzling color palette, refined background art, and fluid animation being particularly impressive. The main character, David, stood out among other anime protagonists, as he didn't complain about his miserable life but rather took action and worked with what he ...
