I like anime, however I presumably like anime intros much more. At their greatest they are a rush of favor and vitality, they usually characteristic higher animation than the present that follows, and they’re often scored by first charge Japanese jazz, rock or blues tracks.
Netflix simply posted the intro to the upcoming Cyberpunk anime, Cyberpunk: Edgerunners, and it is obtained a Franz Ferdinand monitor 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 solid of characters than Cyberpunk 2077. It’s being animated by Studio Trigger, the Japanese anime studio answerable 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 might be, however I benefit from the intro. The Franz Ferdinand monitor lacks the horn part I most crave, but it surely’s nonetheless good. If Speed Grapher can use Duran Duran, then Cyberpunk can use a Franz Ferdinand track from 2004. Plus, all the opposite parts I would like 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 choose mine – however solely as a result of it is Cowboy Bebop and that appears too apparent to jot down down.
