Cyberpunk: Edgerunners Season 1 Review

Cyberpunk: Edgerunners Review

Cyberpunk: Edgerunners Review. Cyberpunk 2077 was one the most anticipated media pieces ever made. CDProjekt RED, a Polish studio that created the acclaimed The Witcher series, had high expectations for Cyberpunk 2077. The universe in which the game takes place is also a big part of their ambitions. Cyberpunk 2077 seemed impossible to fail. There were many collaborations and projects before the game was released. One of these collaborations was with Netflix and the legendary studio Trigger to create an anime series that is based on the game. Let’s take a look at it and see what it came up with.

By TeleFlix

Cyberpunk: Edgerunners, an anime series by CD Projekt RED and animated by Studio Trigger is available on Netflix. The series follows David, a 17-year-old boy who lives in Night City, a cyberpunk city where tabletop and video games are played. David will be confronted with a tragedy that will set him on his way to becoming a big-name figure in the city. He will need to work hard to make it happen in this cyberpunk dystopia.

Cyberpunk 2077 was one of the most highly anticipated media pieces ever made. However, it ended up being one the most disastrous media launches ever. As users realized that the promised game didn’t exist, the situation quickly escalated. Cyberpunk 2077 launched in an incomplete state. It also had bugs, glitches and many performance issues, particularly compared to the previous generation.

After the launch of the game, CD Projekt Red, which owns the IP, was unable to recover. Although the company was successful, the stock price plummeted, their PR was terrible, and they were literally racing against time to finish the game that they had released. They announced that they would be releasing an anime series in collaboration avec Studio Trigger before the game was launched. Although the announcement was received with great excitement at the time, many people don’t care anymore now that the anime has finally arrived years later.

It is unfortunate because, even though the game was a disaster it has been fixed by CD Projekt Red and made playable. Although it may not be the game that we had in mind, the current state of the game makes it a lot more enjoyable. Edgerunners comes at a time when the brand has begun to heal, slowly but surely. Because of the remarkable work that Trigger did in this series, it will only aid in healing.

Cyberpunk: Edgerunners is a series of 10 episodes that tells the story of David, an 18-year-old man who is trying to rise to the top of Night City. The story can be read on its own and has nothing to do with the game’s story. The anime draws heavily from the game’s concepts, lore, and locals, so those who have already played it will get a lot more out of the series. It is clear that the two studios worked together to make this series a part of the entire universe, and not just a spin-off with the same name.

Studio Trigger is the main character in the series. Studio Trigger is now a legend thanks to its incredible animation style. Trigger is the best at anime. Trigger is unrivaled in his ability to create action sequences and over-the-top characters. The studio continues to show off its animation skills in every scene and sequence. The action is intense and exciting, the characters are original and sexy, while the anime’s main protagonist, the city, feels alive.

We have all seen the story of David before. Even the creators of anime admit that Martin Scorsese’s films were a major inspiration in the story they are telling. First, there’s “Goodfellas”. David is just like Henry in the movie. He starts out as a normal kid with ambition. Then he begins to hang out with the wrong people and his descent into Night City’s criminal underground becomes a normal progression. Although it all seems familiar, Trigger is able to bring a bit of cyberpunk to the story.

Trigger is able to spice up the story as the season progresses. Although David and Lucy, the femme fatale, are familiar with the story, it is not long before things get out of control. Midway through the season, the story begins to exploit the universe and uses details unique to the setting in order to create truly terrifying and exciting events. Although David and Lucy may not be the most complex characters in anime, they are easy to love and look after, especially during fast-paced action sequences.

Cyberpunk 2077 may still be recovering from the disastrous launch that nearly killed the company. Cyberpunk: Edgerunners is a positive start. This series could even introduce a new audience for the game. That would be amazing because the game is now and not when it launched. These video game adaptations have been a huge success on Netflix. Animation seems to be the best way to bring these franchises to life on the big screen.
