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.

Spoiler
If there were ever a dead horse we need to stop beating and just bury already, it would probably be cyberpunk. In this newest reanimation of the genre, there isn't any rotting meat left to tenderize, just raw horse hide and bones. The cyberpunk genre mixes gritty dystopia with high tech, and there are basically two main kinds on display: stuff like Ghost in the Shell or Texhnolyze that use the tropes to explore themes of dehumanization and loss of meaning. Then there are the ones that glorify the cyborg lifestyle and portray it as oh soooooo cool and focus on mind-numbing action, ridiculous digital ...

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 ...

Mixed Feelings
I never played Cyberpunk 2077 so I have an unbiased opinion about the franchise going into this show.

Character: 5/10
With as short and as bloody as this show is, it's hard to make people you care deeply about aside from 1 or 2 main characters and the rest are just along for the ride. If we had 12 episodes with more time to feel for the cast, I feel like the emotional payoffs would be much higher.

Art: 10/10
I don't need to explain to much into this, Studio Trigger puts their souls into anything they create. The visuals are colorful and the action is hot.

Story: 3/10
