Meet Emi Lo

Emi Lo is a Taiwanese-Chinese-American voice actor providing the English pipes for Lucy in Cyberpunk: Edgerunners. Lucy’s Japanese voice actor is Aoi Yûki.

The voice actor has a long list of credits in anime dubs for Funimation and Band Zoom! Entertainment.

Lo’s credits began in 2010 and the actor has since performed a staggering 79 roles since the debut of Kemono Friends in 2017.

The voice actor has brought a number of characters to life, including Chitose Inui in Kakegurui Twin, Amira and Maria Slime in Edens Zero, and Suma in Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba.

Cyberpunk: Edgerunners Season 2 Possibilities

Netflix has confirmed that Cyberpunk: Edgerunners is a “standalone” story, which could hint at what Season 2 has in store.

The anime has not been billed as a limited series nor a miniseries, meaning it does have room to expand.

The “standalone” description suggests Season 2 will have a completely new story and the Season 1 ending also supports this.

Season 1 has, so far, received overwhelming positivity from the fanbase, which should be more than enough to convince the platform to consider its continuation.
