While Cyberpunk 2077 is going to be delayed AGAIN, fans of the whole cyberpunk concept might want to check out the top cyberpunk anime of all time.
While the majority of the world is currently looking towards the future with smooth surfaces and fancy luxurious cars, the whole cyberpunk concept describes a different type of future. Instead of having all those smooth surfaces and whatnot, the cyberpunk concept is a fusion of both the past and the future with futuristic technology but in a very distinctive setting.
Fans of this genre usually appreciate this because of the creative mixture of both nostalgia as well as a keen eye to certain futuristic technology. Of course, the reason why these specific animes were able to be dubbed as classic is because of their story and quality as anime as well.
The thing about watching cyberpunk is that it is best done on a big screen in order to see the detail (although classic) of futuristic cyberpunk created in the past. Sony has recently released the Sony X750H 65-Inch LED 4K TV at a 40% discount. Enjoy the top cyberpunk anime of all time on the best screen possible.
Here are the top cyberpunk anime of all time:
- Cowboy Bebop
Cowboy Bebop is one of the most space noir meets classic cyberpunk anime. The whole anime series gives a whole new jazzy look to what cyberpunk is usually stereotyped as. Instead of just a decaying retro world, fans will get a futuristic and fresh but also very gritty and retro feel coming from classic cyberpunk content.
The story follows a particular bounty hunter and his crew as they tread the galaxy in hopes of the crew’s leader, Spot, being able to fulfill something dear to his heart. The anime, although comedic at most points, can also be very heavy and existential as well. Oh yeah, you might want to have good speakers like the VIZIO SB3651-F6 to appreciate all that jazz.
Trigun, on the other hand, takes viewers to the wild wild west where the futuristic gunslinger/criminal is on a mission to save the world. The journey through abandoned spaceships and space ports give such a perfect depiction of what cyberpunk is.
The anime is also very sentimental in nature. The reason why this is part of the top cyberpunk anime of all time is because it was an anime that was created back in 1998 but up to this day paints a really colorful picture of what a western cyberpunk dystopia would look like.
- Ghost in the Shell
When Ghost in the Shell was created, the idea of AIs and cyborgs were still very far from reality and although it might not shock a lot of people nowadays, it is worth noting that the anime was also created back in 1995. The story plot is also very rich and thick all throughout. This anime is available on Netflix making it really easy to watch.
