Editor’s Note: There will be a 2B spoiler for the events of both the NieR Automata anime adaptation and the game below.

When both NieR Automata and Ver1.1a begin, 2B is basically the main character. She’s accompanied by 9S We begin by seeing the two as they deal with the machine lifeforms. However, the game also involves both 9S and A2 being equal leads after a point. The latest key art suggests this second cour of the anime will involve the major event involving 2B that helps provide motivations for 9S’ decisions.

There are currently 12 episodes of Ver1.1a available to watch online. In addition to the original Japanese voice acting, Crunchyroll offers English, Brazilian Portuguese, and Latin American Spanish as dub options.

This comes right as NieR Automata is celebrating its seventh anniversary. The game debuted on the PS4 and PC in 2017. Square Enix revealed it passed eight million in sales after hitting that milestone.

NieR Automata is available on the PS4, Switch, Xbox One, and Windows PC. The first cour of the Ver1.1a anime adaptation is available to stream via Crunchyroll, and the second cour of NieR Automata will appear in 2024.
