‘Cyberpunk: Edgerunners’ Anime Reveals Official Synopsis


Is there Cyberpunk 2077 fans here eager to watch the Cyberpunk: Edge Runners anime adaptation? Good, netflix is here with an official synopsis to amp up the hype. Check it out below:

Borderline Cyberpunk?

With animation by Studio Trigger to boot.

netflix just released an official synopsis for Cyberpunk: Edge Runners on their Netflix Geek Twitter Account. As you might expect from a synopsis, this gives us a glimpse of the story behind this upcoming anime series. For redundancy (and just in case of a technical issue), here are the exact words from the Netflix Geeked synopsis on Twitter:

“CYBERPUNK: EDGERRUNNERS is an animated series from @CDPROJEKTRED + @trigger_inc that follows a street kid trying to survive in a tech- and body-obsessed city of the future. With everything to lose, he chooses to become an edgerunner, a mercenary outlaw also known as cyberpunk.

It’s not much, but it’s the most we’ve had Cyberpunk: Edge Runners so far in terms of history. What we got is quite interesting. Judging by the fact that the main character is specifically a “street kid”, this seems to suggest that he has minimal or no cybernetics installed in him. In a town where virtually everyone has some amount of implants, that might make this “street kid” quite unique. Without cybernetics, it’s possible he could evade the sensors that are specifically looking for them. We’ll have to see how Trigger performs once we’re done seeing it, but overall it looks pretty promising.

Perhaps that glowing hand is a sign that this “street kid” isn’t entirely devoid of cybernetics.

Here’s what we know so far Cyberpunk: Edge Runners. The animation studio is, as I’ve mentioned several times before, Studio Trigger (kill her kill her, Little Witch Academy, Darling in the Franxx). The studio is known for its rather crazy style of animation combined with high-octane action. With that in mind, we can probably expect edge runners be in a similar style.

The only release date we have for Cyberpunk: Edge Runners is somewhere this year in 2022. However, they do not specify exactly when this year. This is something we will have to wait for Netflix, CD Projekt Red or Studio Trigger to give us later. Especially the former, as the anime will be a Netflix exclusive. Check with us later for the release date when we finally get it.
