Anime adaptations of video games have to be the best purely for their attention span. The latest to hop on that train is NieR: Automata, and looking at their promos one can quickly tell they’re aiming for the top spot.
Otaku gamers may be familiar with this action-packed game, but it’s a whole new world just for anime fans. Given that they are venturing into new territory, the franchise is bold enough to get off to a good start with trailers and teasers.
Contrary to its first teaser, NieR: Automata’s latest anime is a promo video for characters 2B and 9S. According to the video, the anime’s official title is “NieR: Automata Ver1.1a” and is expected to debut in January 2023.

The first character video titled “Promotion File 001:2B” features female Android 2B.
It features 2B with his monologue in the background as he takes down several mecha enemies with his god-level sword skills.
From his voice and attitude, 2B seems to be a serious character who is not very expressive and seems cold. Despite being an android, he seems to have an understanding of the world and its complexities.
The second character video is titled “Promotion File 002:9S” and features the male 9S android.
Unlike the 2B, the 9S seems more expressive and a bit cheerful for an Android. 9S seems to be the brains of the team with all kinds of mission information.
Instead of living in reality, the 9S looks like a curious soul who wants to explore the world and see what it has to offer.
Additionally, the videos also reveal the cast that will play these characters and more:
|character||the cast||other work|
|2B||Yui Ishikawa||Mikasa Ackerman (Attack on Titan)|
|9S||Natsuki Hanai||Tanjiro Kamado (Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba)|
|Capsule 042||Hiroki Yasumoto||Sado Yasutora (Bleach)|
|Capsule 153||Kaoru Akiyama||Mitsuko Kanzaki (Re: Stage! Dream Days)|
Looking at the star cast list, I can safely say that this anime is going to be epic.
The franchise also teased the anime’s staff roster, and we’ve got it for you here:
|Composition of the series||Yoko Taro, Ryuji Masuyama||–|
|Character designer||Jun Nakai||Blue Ghost Saint|
|the composer||Monaco||Nana’s buried treasure|

I hope all this newly revealed information inspires you for anime, because it certainly did for me.
