Cyberpunk: Edgerunners, one of the most highly-anticipated Netflix anime titles, is coming next month! Today, it was announced that the anime adaptation from CD Projekt Red and created by Studio Trigger (Kill la Kill, Promare) is coming to Netflix on September 13. The 10-episode anime series is based on the best-selling open-world roleplaying videogame Cyberpunk 2077 and set in the futuristic world of Mike Pondsmith's tabletop RPG Cyberpunk.
The official website for the anime series confirmed the release date with a new artwork that features characters from the Night City:
Cyberpunk: Edgerunners follows David, a street kid trying to survive in a technology and body modification-obsessed city of the future known as Night City. Having everything to lose, he chooses to stay alive by becoming an edgerunner – a mercenary outlaw also known as cyberpunk - after he meets a mysterious hacker named Lucy. He will be fighting Night City's most notorious criminals and cyber-psychos in his mission to become a so-called legend.
Voice actor David Martinez will be leading the series for the English dub. The anime series was directed by Hiroyuki Imaishi (Kill la Kill, Gurren Lagann, Promare) along with creative director Hiromi Wakabayashi (Kill la Kill), with character designs by Yoh Yoshinari (BNA: Brand New Animal, Little Witch Academia) and an original score composed by Akira Yamaoka (Silent Hill series).
