Cyberpunk: Edgerunners is a standalone 10-episode anime series set in the world of Cyberpunk 2077. The story revolves around a street kid trying to survive in Night City – a technology and body modification-obsessed metropolis. 

In order to make a living in this harsh environment, the protagonist becomes an Edgerunner. These mercenary outlaws are known to use violence to achieve their goals, with local law enforcement often keen to crack down on their activities. 

The show aims to capture both the visceral violence of the game, while also covering themes and topics that weren’t explored in CD Projekt RED’s title. This means viewers who haven’t experienced the game can still enjoy Cyberpunk: Edgerunners.
