There are more looks at the NieR Automata anime, particularly major protagonist 9S, ahead of Ver1.1a‘s debut. Two videos showed up. One focuses solely on 9S. The other is a more general NieR Automata anime trailer dedicated to showing footage of characters during poignant moments. That video seems to show animated adaptations of major scenes from the game.
Next, here’s the 9S video. In addition to showing footage of him in the show, it gives people a chance to hear Natsuki Hanae as him again. Hanae is also the voice actor for 9S in the game. People might also recognize him as Tanjiro in Demon Slayer, Alm in Fire Emblem, and Ken in Tokyo Ghoul.
