Cyberpunk: Edgerunners might have been created by CD Projekt Red and Studio TRIGGER, but the anime has been a big hit for Netflix since landing on the streaming service. Following a young mercenary attempting to make a name for himself with the city known as Night City, David finds love in his fellow cyberpunk, Lucy. With Edgerunners becoming a love story, one cosplayer has brought the edgerunner to life who helps initiate David into the seedy underbelly of their shared city.
Edgerunners was created by Studio TRIGGER, who anime fans might not best for the animation studio's work on the likes of Kill la Kill, Paramore, and BNA: Brand New Animal. Hot off the heels of Edgerunners, TRIGGER has been confirmed to adapt a fan-favorite manga in Delicious in Dungeon, where a band of adventurers blend fighting with looking for delicious dishes. The latest Cyberpunk anime series had Lucy meeting David by accident, attempting to scam him but ultimately falling in love with the edgy teenager that discovers top secret tech which gives him an edge in Night City's underworld. Without going too deeply into spoiler territory, it is possible that Lucy might return in the future, though we would imagine that it might be via CD Projket's game.
Instagram Cosplayer Kan.Alyss shared the new take on Cyberpunk: Edgerunners' Lucy, who had a tragic childhood which led to her becoming one of the greatest hackers currently in Night City and made her a force to be reckoned with inside of Maine's crew in the Netflix adaptation:
The official website for Cyberpunk revealed an official description for Edgerunners' anime series, breaking down the story of David and his crew if you haven't had the opportunity to dive into the ten-episode series by Studio TRIGGER:
"Cyberpunk: Edgerunners 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."
Do you think we'll one day see Lucy make a comeback? Feel free to let us know in the comments or hit me up directly on Twitter @EVComedy to talk all things comics, anime, and the world of Cyberpunk.0comments
