Cyberpunk: Edgerunners made its anime debut around the world earlier this Fall, and one awesome cosplay is reminding fans of just how cool Kiwi was! The Studio Trigger take on the massive Cyberpunk franchise tossed fans into a futuristic world full of characters with memorable designs. It wasn't a long series run by any means, but if reactions to the series since its premiere on Netflix have been any indication, the anime made quite a lot of waves with fans nonetheless. Even still, fans are holding out hope that there might even be more of it someday in the future.
This is because while the story seemed to end for each of the main characters, there are just as many throughout its world that fans want to get to know much better than they were able to. Characters like Kiwi, who ended up playing a role in how it all went down in a surprising way, but at the same time still had plenty of secrets left hidden when the credits rolled on the final episode. At least the character is living on through awesome cosplay from artist @kyoko_xie on Instagram. Check it out below:
How to Watch Cyberpunk: Edgerunners
Cyberpunk: Edgerunners is directed by Hiroyuki Imaishi with Hiromi Wakabayashi serving as creative director, Yoh Yoshinari as character designer and animation director, with an adapted screenplay from Yoshiki Usa and Masahiko Otsuka. You can now find the series streaming with Netflix, and they tease the anime as such, "The series tells a standalone, 10-episode story about a street kid trying to survive in Night City — a technology and body modification-obsessed city of the future. Having everything to lose, he stays alive by becoming an edgerunner — a mercenary outlaw also known as a cyberpunk."
ComicBook.com's Evan Valentine reviewed the series' when it hit Netflix earlier this Fall (which you can find in full here), and if you're wondering how the anime shook out, here's an excerpt, "...Edgerunners is a series that isn't shy about its ultra-violence, and while some of the stars will meet gruesome ends, Trigge was able to help make those scenes hit that much harder when they inevitably happen to a member of the crew that we came to know over the ten episodes. Trigger uses an animation style that is fluid, energetic, and crackling with power along the way, helping to keep your eyes transfixed on the screen in fear that you might miss an animation cell along the way."
