TAkudama Drive is one of the most visually stylistic anime to come out in 2020. Its cyberpunk elements are astounding to look at and the action is breathtaking. Originally the show was supposed to air in July 2020 but the ongoing CoVID-19 pandemic delayed it until October. With four episodes in, fans can hardly wait for Akudama Drive Episode 5.
Akudama Drive is set in a dystopian future in Kansai and follows Akudama or criminals, pursued by the government. We follow these criminals on various missions with amazing cyberpunk aesthetic and the obvious Quentin Tarantino influence.
