Netflix’s Cyberpunk: Edgerunners is an up-and-coming anime series that has created a lot of buzz in the otaku community.
While showing us the tech-savvy Night City, the anime ventures deep into the Cyberpunk world full of people obsessed with modifying their bodies with tech. Being from the Cyberpunk 2077 franchise, this one has much anticipation and expectations tied to it.
Now that Netflix has listed Cyberpunk: Edgerunners anime for a premiere on September 13, 2022, fans have become even more agitated.
The streaming giant had previously revealed that the anime would be out in September 2022 but only recently confirmed a date. There’s not an official announcement about it yet, but the date is mentioned on Netflix US’s website.
Edgerunners is listed as a 10-episode series with a street kid named David as its protagonist. The story will follow David’s adventures and encounters in Night City among people who are crazy about altering their bodies with technology.
To stay alive in this ruthless city, people become edgerunners or cyberpunks who are mercenary outlaws. David, also an edgerunner, survives by taking up dangerous odd jobs by putting everything he has on the line.
Since a materialistic mindset plagues the city, heinous crimes have become a daily occurrence. Cyberpunks or Edgerunners are people who deal with such dirty work.
Such a plot proves that people will do anything to hold out a little longer, no matter how dangerous something is. David is also a kid ambitious about living to experience a world he’s never seen before and in hopes of better days.
With less than a month left for the premiere, I’d like to remind everyone to renew their subscriptions if you haven’t already.
