Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Cyberpunk: Edgerunners is an anime series based on the Cyberpunk 2077 video game that is intended for adults. There's lots of bloody and brutal fantasy violence, and guns are often visible. There's strong sexual content, including scenes of sexual acts (and full-frontal female nudity), frequent cursing, lots of smoking, and drinking. It also offers a good story that is separate from the video game, and great animation.
Is It Any Good?
The edgy, violent, and well-produced anime series takes place in the Cyberpunk 2077 universe, but offers its own standalone narrative. It features a different cast from from the video game, but incorporates elements from it, including some cameo appearances and specific augments and settings that will be recognizable to those who play it. Nonetheless, Cyberpunk: Edgerunners tells a good story in its own right, and you don't have to be familiar with the game to appreciate it. But you do have to be old enough to handle its mature content, because it isn't meant for kids.
