Here is an overview of the series, via CD Projekt RED:
Cyberpunk: Edgerunners tells the story of David Martinez, a street kid trying to survive in a technology and body modification-obsessed city of the future. In the aftermath of a personal tragedy, David decides to take control of his own destiny by becoming an edgerunner—a mercenary outlaw also known as a cyberpunk.
The acclaimed Japanese animation company Studio TRIGGER collaborated with CD Projekt RED to bring the story to life, with Hiroyuki Imaishi (Gurren Lagann, Kill la Kill, Promare) directing the show. Yoh Yoshinari (Little Witch Academia, BNA: Brand New Animal) is the chief character designer as well as executive animation director.

The original score is composed by Akira Yamaoka (Silent Hill series).
