Cyberpunk: Edgerunners has really taken over ever since it released on Netflix earlier this Fall, and one awesome music video is honoring David Martinez and Lucy’s romance throughout the series! Although Cyberpunk 2077 has been a major video game release with fans, the franchise just got a huge shot in the arm with a brand new anime series that opened up a whole new look on the series’ world. Much of it is due to the central romance between its two lead characters that fans wanted to see play out over its run. Now the two have gotten a fun new way to show off their relationship!
That romance was such a hit with fans that Cyberpunk: Edgerunners is celebrating the series’ release with Netflix with a cool new music video showing off David and Lucy’s connection with the series. Taking on “I Really Want to Stay At Your House” as performed by Rosa Walton (Let’s Eat Grandma), the special music video taps into much of what fans loved about the series overall. You can check it out below:
ComicBook.com’s Evan Valentine teased the following in the official review for Cyberpunk: Edgerunners (which you can find in full here), “…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.”
As for the series itself, 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. Netflix officially teases the series 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.”
