I'm surprised no one has made a topic yet.
10 episodes, on Netflix, set in the same world as the Cyberpunk 2077 videogame.

It's truly great, and despite feeling so Imaishi it's at the same time very different from everything he's done before.
Shinji: "Sooner or later I'll be betrayed... And they'll leave me. Still... I want to meet them again, because I believe my feelings at that time were real."
Ryuko: "I'm gonna knock ya on your asses!"
-Asuka: THINK IN GERMAN!!! -Shinji: Öh... Baumkuchen...
Hayashida: "As game developers, our work is special. All of us here can put smiles on very many people's faces with our work."

I had some trepidation going into this since I had pretty mixed feelings on 2077, but Trigger pulled through and made something really quite good IMO.

Gonna reserve some time this weekend to watch it. The game is shrouded in controversy and Keanu Reeves memes, but this will give it more life.

EDIT: I have now watched it and think it is pretty great. I was a bit worried halfway through when the direction of the story made a big turn, but I think it wrapped up pretty well and had some distinct points. The only thing that would be better would be if there was a sequel, although it could exist perfectly as a stand-alone.
