Cyberpunk anime

Cyberpunk is a particular genre of anime I really enjoy- with the Cyberpunk 2077 anime show coming to Netflix I thought it would be a good time to discuss the cyberpunk genre of anime in general. This whole genre of sci-fi is something that doesn't really occur in western animation. The only western shows I can think of right now is Peter Chung's Aeon Flux and maybe Spider-Man 2099- if you can think of another please post.

Currently I'm watching Iria: Zeiram the Animation (on Tubi for free) which has that very particular 90's style of animation. Of course there are the more popular shows like Cowboy Bebop, Trigun, Outlaw Star, Bubblegum Crisis, GitS, etc, etc. Of course I would be remiss if I failed to mention Akira. If you have a favorite please share it, especially something a lesser known show or movie.

Re: Cyberpunk anime

I think any of Shirow's works would qualify: besides GiTS, there's Appleseed, Dominion, Black Magic M-66, etc. There's Space Adventure Cobra, whose toys were famously used for Go-bots. Battle Angel Alita, though sadly there's never really been a long form anime adaptation. Nihei's various works (Knights of Sidonia, Blame, etc.)

Most of these are much better in manga form, though.

I'm not sure of the strict definition of Cyber Punk so I don't know if stuff like Psycho Pass, Ergo Proxy or Texhnolyze fit in. Like is Lain cyberpunk or just cyber?

The animated series 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. CD PROJEKT RED, the company behind the Cyberpunk 2077 video game, is producing the series, with a creative team formed of talent from The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, and Cyberpunk 2077. The team at CD PROJEKT RED has been working on this new series since 2018.

Re: Cyberpunk anime

Love the animation and it has potential. I know they can't license Keanu for this but the two main avatars are off-putting, because they're practically kids. Will definitely tune in, though.

Re: Cyberpunk anime

When I finally read "Neuromancer" by William Gibson, the sci-fi novel that was the forerunner of cyberpunk, I was amazed at how much it looked forward to "Cowboy Bebop." I wonder if the makers were ever asked if they read that book.

Re: Cyberpunk anime

I'm on episode 3 and this series is off the hook! The animation is stellar and I love that it's canon to the game. Night City looks epic here.

It's in HD/DV / 5.1, though. I wish it was 4K/Atmos, but whatever.

Re: Cyberpunk anime

Well, this has become an Edgerunners thread, so...

I've been hearing it's really good so it's on my list.
