‘Cyberpunk 2077’ anime coming from ‘Kill la Kill’ and ‘Gurren Lagann’ studio. This is so fucking choice!
Holy gloriously swollen-taint, friends! My favorite anime studio is bringing a Cyberpunk 2077 anime to Netflix. Like, I say goddamn!
Studio Trigger, the anime production company made up of former members of the legendary studio Gainax, is producing a Cyberpunk 2077 anime for Netflix set to premiere in 2022. Called Cyberpunk: Edgerunners, the anime will be a standalone story set in the world of developer CD Projekt Red’s upcoming open-world action roleplaying game.
Here’s how CD Projekt Red describes it:
CYBERPUNK: EDGERUNNERS tells a standalone, 10-episode 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.
Trigger, besides being founded by members that worked on seminal anime like Neon Genesis Evangelion, is best known for its highly stylistic, experimental art styles and over-the-top narratives. Its best-known works include Kill la Kill, Darling in the Franxx, and more recently, the hugely successful anime film Promare.
