I like anime, however I presumably like anime intros much more. At their greatest they seem to be a rush of fashion and vitality, they typically function higher animation than the present that follows, and they’re commonly scored by first fee Japanese jazz, rock or blues tracks.
Netflix simply posted the intro to the upcoming Cyberpunk anime, Cyberpunk: Edgerunners, and it is bought a Franz Ferdinand observe excessive – however hey, it is nonetheless fairly good.
Edgerunners is a ten-part anime series set in Night City and written and produced in partnership with CD Projekt Red, however with a special forged of characters than Cyberpunk 2077. It’s being animated by Studio Trigger, the Japanese anime studio accountable for Kill La Kill, SSSS.Gridman and the Little Witch Academia film. These aren’t initiatives I really like, however I’m pretty assured at the very least that the intro will not be the flashiest little bit of animation within the present. A trailer launched final month signifies first rate manufacturing values.
Who is aware of what the standard of the series can be, however I benefit from the intro. The Franz Ferdinand observe lacks the horn part I most crave, however it’s nonetheless good. If Speed Grapher can use Duran Duran, then Cyberpunk can use a Franz Ferdinand tune from 2004. Plus, all the opposite parts I need from an intro are there: daring colors, large fonts, visible metaphors taken to ridiculous extremes…
Cyberpunk: Edgerunners is due someday this September. In the meantime, go on, inform me your favorite anime intro. I can not decide mine – however solely as a result of it is Cowboy Bebop and that appears too apparent to put in writing down.
