Studio Trigger Produces 'Cyberpunk: Edgerunners' Anime Series

Recommended Posts

During the Cyberpunk 2077 Night City Wire: Episode 1 livestream on Thursday, an anime series titled Cyberpunk: Edgerunners was announced. The anime will take place in the same universe as the game, featuring an original story. The 10-episode anime series will debut on Netflix in 2022.

Cyberpunk: Edgerunners tells a standalone story about a street kid trying to survive in a technology and body modification-obsessed city of the future. Having everything to lose, he chooses to stay alive by becoming an edgerunner—a mercenary outlaw also known as a cyberpunk.

Hiroyuki Imaishi, the director behind Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann and Kill la Kill, will helm the series at animation studio Trigger, with assistant director Masahiko Otsuka (Promare, Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt). Otsuka is also in charge of the screenplay alongside Yoshiki Usa (SSSS.Gridman producer). You Yoshinari (Little Witch Academia) and Yuuto Kaneko (BNA animation director) are designing the characters.

Akira Yamaoka (Silent Hill video game franchise) is composing the original score. Hiromi Wakabayashi (Uchuu Patrol Luluco) is serving as the creative director.

Developed by CD Projekt, Cyberpunk 2077 adapts the 1988 tabletop role-playing game, which is scheduled for release on Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on November 19.
