We can’t deny that trigger he did a spectacular job with the anime Cyberpunk Edgerunnerswhich escapes from everything usual that we have seen from anime series so far this year, more than anything because of what raw and bloodybut which in turn lends itself to this futuristic and cyberpunk universe.
Another factor to take into account is their characters and their growth, starting from David Martinezwho is the main character and Lucyalong with his bandmates made up of Rebecca, Maine, Dorian, Falco, Pillar Y Kiwi.
But if you liked the anime series, then we leave you 5 similar recommendations that share gender, similarity in story development or are from the same Trigger study that animated the series:
Psycho-Pass is an original anime made by Production I.G. It currently has three seasons and one movieand takes us to a futuristic Japan where justice is enforced by a system we’ll know as Sibyl, a technology that measures each citizen’s threat level by examining their mental state for signs of criminal intent, known as their Psycho- Pass.
Spotting a person with negative intentions, inspectors uphold the law by subjugating, often with deadly force, anyone harboring even the slightest bit of ill will. But will Sibyl be an infallible system to do justice?

Akame ga Kill!
Akame ga Kill! It is another series that I add to the recommendations and although it is not related to the cyberpunk genre, I add it because of the similarity in the development of the story, since it tells us the story of Tatsumi, who dreamed of enlisting in the army so to be able to help his native town out of misery. But on the way of his journey, he meets different challenges and enemies, which will put his own morals and values to the limit.
The anime premiered in July 2014, and had 24 episodes animated by White Fox. The series adapts the homonymous manga by author Takahiro and illustrator Tetsuya Tashiro.
Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann
Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann is another anime that is not part of the cyberpunk genre, but I add it since it is an anime animated by Gainaxstudy where the founders of StudioTrigger, we talk about Hiroyuki Imaishi Y Masahiko Ohtsuka.
The series tells us about the adventures of Simon and Kamina, who were born and raised in an underground town. But one day, while digging up the earth, Simon stumbles upon a mysterious object that turns out to be the ignition key to an ancient artifact of war, which the duo names Lagann. Later, Simon and Kamina set out on an adventure that will never be turned back, discovering the surface that was unknown to them while slowly unraveling a mystery the size of a galaxy.
The anime premiered in April 2007 and has a total of 27 episodes.
kill la kill
Finally we have Kill la Kill, which is the first anime developed by Trigger and also doesn’t share the cyberpunk genre, but I add it since it was the first anime produced by the studio behind Cyberpunk Edgerunners.
This anime stars Ryuuko Matoi, who loses her father at the hands of assassins, wanders the earth looking for the culprit, following a single clue, the missing half of her invention, the Scissor Blade, arrives at the prestigious Honnouji Academy, a high school like no other.
