“NieR: Automata” is an action RPG produced by Square Enix and developed by Platinum Games.

Comment from Yui Ishikawa (as 2B) The
staff are all full of NieR love, and I’m excited that it will become a good anime. Please look forward to it.

Comment from Natsuki Hanae (as 9S)
I am thrilled with the anime adaptation. In the game, 9S was screaming a lot towards the end, but I’m a little nervous about how much he’ll scream in the anime. Nevertheless, I will do my best, so please look forward to the completion.
