This is Cyberpunk: Edgerunners
That’s what it’s about: The anime series is set in the same dystopian world as Cyberpunk 2077, but tells an independent story with new characters. Our protagonist is the “street kid” David, who wants to become a lawless mercenary – an edge runner. Together with a crew of other Edgerunners, he not only takes on criminals, but also has to deal with one of the most powerful mega-corporations in the world.
The series relies on stylish animations that are not stingy with blood and brutality. The production is created by the Japanese animation studio Studio Trigger, which is known for Promare and Kill la Kill, among other things.
Intro and episodes are known
You can also already watch the intro to the cyberpunk anime, the song This Fire comes from the British band Franz Ferdinand. According to Netflix, Cyberpunk: Edgerunners is designed for ten episodes, but the streaming provider has not yet revealed whether the series is complete or whether another season could come.
