Edgerunners Soared To The Top Of Netflix Anime History

From the moment it was first released back on September 12th, 2022, “Cyberpunk Edgerunners” enjoyed an extreme amount of success — earning 14,880,800 hours of global viewership in it’s very first week, and immediately entering the global top 10 for television shows (Non-English) on Netflix (via Twitter).

As if the incredible viewership numbers for “Cyberpunk: Edgerunners” weren’t already enough, the series further entrenched itself in Netflix anime history with its remarkable critical reception, earning an astounding 100% Critical Rating and an even more impressive 96% Audience Score on Rotten Tomatoes. These spectacular ratings make “Edgerunners” one of the most highly rated Netflix originals of all time, animated or otherwise, and even surpass the respective ratings for the beloved Netflix anime “Castlevania.”

Not only that, but the show’s meteoric rise in popularity is also repeating a surprising accomplishment made by Netflix’s “The Witcher” by actually boosting sales for the video game which it is based on –- a feat made even more impressive by the fact that “Cyberpunk 2077” was universally panned upon release. The film’s impressive viewership, incredible ratings, and measurable effect on video game sales make it undoubtedly one of the most successful Netflix anime series of all time, and certainly place it within the upper-echelon of animated Netflix originals.
