In today’s video, we take a trip into Night City, to discover the dreams that reside there, but most importantly, to analyze the pointlessness of it all. To do that, we’ll first take a look at Studio Trigger’s writing as a whole, and how they just GET it, and then fully breakdown (and explain the ending) Cyberpunk: Edgerunners in this anime video essay!
