Why you should watch Cyberpunk: Edgerunners



With the lack of content on Netflix, I was on the verge of finally cancelling my subscription. There was nothing worthwhile on the platform that was going to keep me paying, or so I thought.

It stood out in plain sight with its splashing, bright, grandiose colours on the trending page, Netflix’s most recent anime – Cyberpunk: Edgerunners. “Let’s give this a shot,” I thought to myself.

What followed were some of the best hours I have spent watching any anime.

Set in the year 2077, the show takes place in the same universe as the Cyberpunk 2077 video game and follows David Martinez. The audience follows our young protagonist manoeuvring through the clutches of a vivid, cybernetic dystopia as he struggles to follow his dreams.

For the people who are aware of Cyberpunk, the thing they might be most sceptical of is whether or not the adaptation is as bad as the game’s release. To them, I say no. This is one of the best anime adaptations out right now, and you should find the time to watch this. It was a much-needed win for Netflix and was also necessary to get people interested in the game again.

The first thing that stood out to me was the animation itself.
