CDPR deserves a lot of credit for what makes Netflix’s new anime Cyberpunk Edgerunners so good, but considering they built Night City and wrote the script, they’re I almost made a big mistake.
If you’ve seen this series, you probably agree with the sentiment that one of the best, if not the best, characters is Rebecca, the goblin member with the gang’s little gorilla hand, LMG But CDPR classified her as another loli and didn’t want her on the crew as a result. But the trigger was pushed back.
At a recent Twitch event, CDPR I explained what happened:
“She’s the best girl, but I feel a little guilty saying that because I was one of the creative team who actually voted Rebecca out of the original cast during pre-production. When they got the character design for , they said, “She’s a loli. Loris doesn’t exist in Night City. It doesn’t fit into the ‘Cyberpunk 2077’ aesthetic.”
According to the developer, the trigger’s response: “No, Lori must stay.”
This whole exchange has generated a certain amount of controversy among cyberpunk fans, given how loaded the term “loli” is in anime. The quote from Trigger is second-hand, and most likely not the way she was actually classified.
Some say that Rebecca isn’t underage and is just a tiny woman designed with a petite build.But you probably remember the segment on Edgerunners where Rebecca was denied entry to an afterlife bar because she was too young. Then there’s a time jump that I’m assuming is at least a year or two, so she’s even older. In terms of the character being sexualized, there is one segment of her early on in which Rebecca appears in her underwear (although in that scene, she is the main one who threatens her character rather than seducing her). are available). .
However, the end result worked out well, as even CDPR agreed that Rebecca was the “best girl” and was pleased that she was included in the series as a character that might have resonated the most with fans. Of course the problem is (spoiler, spoiler, spoiler), like most of the cast, Rebecca does not survive the events of the series. Because just before he kills David himself, he is crushed to death by Adam Smasher, who jumps off the Arasaka Tower in pursuit of David. There’s a particularly horrific moment when Rebecca sees her brain slammed to the ground and smashed, but we’re hearing some fans are desperate for it to be “undone” for Season 2. .
In short, listen to your trigger. they know what they are doing.
