Got any hopes for CDPR and Trigger's joint project?


They will never be able to live up to the standards of Inferno Cop.


it's trigger so i will consoom it
can anyone who played cyberpunk tell me if it's anti-capitalist or if trigger can make the anime so?


The most anticapitalist message in CP77 is its release. Also Trigger will only work on direction and animation afaik.


I mean Cyberpunk 2077 is pretty indistinct (by design) in terms of setting and plot so I'm just thinking of it as another Trigger anime. Meaning it will be either "overall pretty good but with some noticeable lulls" or "completely unremarkable"


so it will just be a Darling in the franxx where it's probably written like shit but there is cool animation.


pretty good so far. pigs are pigs. corps are corps. havent played the actual game tho. classic mid life crisis of following other people's dreams. cyberpsychosis just seems like an allegory for PTSD and something else(delusion of grandeur) rather than the actual cybernetics doing jank to a person's mind

God damn that was good. Guy who wrote the script for this really needs to do more cyberpunk anime.


was pretty good, expected a cashgrab got a good story in a cool cyberpunk setting


Same here, I expected nothing and instead I got the anime of the year.


Is it a series? When does it air?


It already ended. You can find rips on nyaa.


Thanks. I was confused because MAL says it's ten episodes but only gives a single date for airing.


It is, if you do the cyberpsycho quests they basically all have a reveal that the psycho was going/had gone through rough shit like war or homelessnes (which is multiplied by the affected knowing they are capable of massive destruction) and then snapping


damn the cyberpunk lore droppers from youtube really wanted their audiences to know that it was only the implants causing cyberpsychosis. maybe ill play through it myself


but interesting nonetheless i appreciate u telling me about the quest


Np man, also I'm not sure but a friend told me once that the same is also stated in the original tabletop lore too: the whole cyberpsychosis thing started with the central american war vets getting back home and the goverment just blaming the implants as a scapegoat instead of paying for therapy or lower enlistment rates.


They must be dumb as shit then, if implants were the sole reason for cyberpsychosis, then 90% of the people would develop it, instead it's just a minority.

What an enjoyable cast of characters.


I wish we got a well-funded Shadowrun anime but fucking Microsoft owns the rights to the series.


It's ok.


Instead of "based", say "preem" or "nova".
Instead of "cringe", say "gonk" or "gonked".
Instead of "redpilled", say "chromed".
Instead of "bro" or "senpai", say "choom", "choomba" or "chombatta".
Instead of "Chad" or "sigma", say "Solo"
Instead of "sneed", say "sneed."


>cyberpsychosis just seems like an allegory for PTSD and something else
Wouldn't the obvious allegory be for mass shooters? That's basically what they end up doing.


In Shadowrun there's also humanity loss for getting too chromed but afaik sociopaths don't suffer from it.

I wish anime girls smoking showed up more often.


The domestic anime market is stagnant. All the best studios are courting international investment now.


Smoking is gross

Take that back.


Feel like the whole cyberpunk genre has become doomer porn tbh.


It's just a warning of what would happen if capitalism isn't destroyed.


I wonder if this means a recline from fantasy anime and sci fi will once again be in the for front to some degree. I can see how a lot of boilerplae isekai can turn people off or at least make them check out. For every Sci-Fi story nowadays there is 20 fantasy comics, most of which are power fantasy.


I just hope it means more interesting anime will be made again instead of run-of-the-mill isekai and romcoms. There's no more GitSes being made anymore.


i was watching this video essay on the horror game industry and how horror games turn into entirely different genre games the more iterations you make of the series, see Dead Space and Resident Evil turning from Horror into a more action based third person shooter type of game. off topic, but the third person based shooter was first seen in horror games, and was the inspiration for future iconic third person perspective shooters like Gears of War or the warhammer 40k video games. part of the philosophy were the game devs themselves trying to instill new thrills to an assumed desensitized player audience, but the real deep dive away from horror was basically the financial hierarchs deciding that they want to lean into this action element and ordering the devs to re-scrap entire projects to fit their vision.

i imagine it's similar if not the same for the anime industry. isekai/fantasy and shit pushed bc its popular. probably golden years for creators who have always wanted to do isekai/fantasy and nightmare for anyone who wants something different. we'll have the old golden year to bloated cycle(not necessarily occurring one after the other, possibly can occur at the same time)again if sci fi gets pushed


although unlike games, anime cant be scrapped and rebuilt, so i imagine whatever financial board or marketing department goes hard with pressure at the beginning(does it even work that way? not sure)


Anime and LN adaptations are mostly faithful.


As a libertarian, I find it strange people call Cyberpunk a Dystopian genre. I see a completely destroyed world as a Dystopia not a thriving and technologically advanced world where people live longer and have access to far better tech.

Not just that, it also has far greater opportunities for people to actually achieve greatness and thrive. Equality does not equal greatness; the greater the inequality the greater opportunities you would have. I literally enjoy Cyberpunk 2077 world so much solely for how technologically advanced it was and how huge the wealth gap was. A successful corpo (not even a CEO type) wield far more power over the rest of the people than they would today, it makes me so jealous. I am a software engineer for a top 3 tech company and I would be the equivalent of a successful corpo in that world. In this world, after taxes, I barely make 2x what a regular household income would be (cause my gf doesn't work); in Cyberpunk 2077, I would be able to enjoy far greater things (from existence of wealth gap). Don't people see that? Wealth gap literally means you have a higher ceiling to reach and could achieve more. How boring would it be if a conqueror or genius type lived in the cavemen times where everyone is virtually equal no matter how hard you try (maybe you get a few more piece of meat and live slightly longer and enjoy slight better mates).

Mike Pondsmith (creator of the original TTRPG) posted an explanation of cyberpsychosis on some reddit thread.


>I expected nothing and instead I got the anime of the year.
I expected bad, and got ok. Anime of the year? I don't watch much anime so hard to compare, but it was pretty meh. I didn't dislike it, but wouldn't recommend it to anyone.


>wouldn't recommend it to anyone.
seems harsh, I definitely recommended it to a bunch of ppl.

>as a delusional sociopathic retard […] can't wait to be a even more of a tool of capital run amok that get sent to the trash as soon as he fail / get backstabbed in a power struggle / die a stupid death to a rival corp or random cyberpunks because I'd get a nice suit and cool cars and could call gangs on people I dislike !
I know it must be bait, but it's funny to me how these morons somehow think they wouldnt get shafted hard in the ass just cause they think they're "worthy" or some stupid shit like that, as if that would prevent them to get crushed by the capitalist machine


I guess it fits in with what this guy >>17081 was saying, psychological factors play a big deal


It's been 3 days since I finished the show and today I broke down a little bit and cried.
I'm of the opinion that the ending is hopeless and there's no silver lining, the moon will become just like night city with capital flowing through every inch of it and lucy's hell will just repeat itself.

I just can't get over it, is there something wrong with me? Probably doesn't help that I've got nothing else going on and this show took me by storm.


Not gonna lie a lot of anime fans have low standards when it comes to good writing and story telling
Which is why everyone keeps repeating "anime of the year" all the fucking time
They get hooked on the sakuga or some good ideas and just assume the show is good just by that


is there anything even worth mining on the moon? anyways they already got a tourism spot there


Helium 3


Pointless and stupid. What's actually worth mining on the moon is materials to produce ultra simple solar panels and machinery to beam the power back to Earth in the form of microwaves.


Didn't think we'd get a happy ending given the themes of cyberpunk and all but I was pleasantly surprised!


The moon makes more sense as a launch platform for further space exploration. It has its own gravity which solves certain structural problems with large scale complexes and enough mass to serve as a launch point for ships traveling farther form Earth. A moon base would make sense for transportation reasons since the lower gravity means less energy is required for takeoff. The fact that it's tidally locked would actually make a space elevator a fairly sensible solution, too.


I feel better now



oh boy! time to beat the shit out of Adam with a dildo again.


Falco best boy


haha why is he shirtless on the moon 😃😃😃😃


good :D i might watch it again tbh


I haven't broken down but it's not something to watch if you're in a bad mood.

Personally, it was just another show in a line of shows that are well-loved but I don't vibe with much. I thought the main relationship was well done, and they hit something with the cast, but the story got muddled by the end, imo.

If it makes you feel better, just look up all the coping on Twitter and stuff.


hope u feel better! if thats possible…


It should've had the standard of 12 episodes.


damn cant believe we missed out on the dorio maine sex scene in the deleted scenes :P


I really enjoyed it. I liked the characters, and the animation is vibrant and stylish. I'm glad she survived because in the end I loved her too


I think the game implies at some point that the moon base is actually some sort of corpo experiment or honeypot and the people that inhabit it are doomed somehow, so best girl might have gone from frying pan to frier.
