Akudama Drive is a Japanese Sci-fi anime series produced by Pierrot and Too Kyo Games. The show was originally scheduled for a July release which was postponed due to the pandemic. It has finally come our way to entertain us in October and we’re already approaching Akudama Drive Episode 3. The excitement is only going to build up from here onwards and we can’t stay calm.
The visuals of the anime are very gratifying and are likened to that of movies with the cyberpunk aesthetic like “The Blade Runner”. Viewers who favor such art styles plus the dystopian genre will surely love this latest release of 2020. Unlike the majority of animes, this one is a story in itself since it hasn’t been adapted from a pre-existing novel series or otherwise. The series has rather birthed a manga adaptation that is being written currently.
