A2 and White
A2 a shit
I love Devola&Popola!
>>250234596That's not my bed.
I love coomander!
I love Ishikawa Yui so much
>>250237008I love her but I prefer A2 in N:A
I guess the dub begins release today, with the game's cast back. I suppose if anyone is into the dub they should check it out.I'm most curious what they will do with the English script. Localize it to death or what.
>>250237057no one cares, fuck off
>>250233946I haven't been keeping up with this series. Has there been any deviation from the game's story yet? Any new Drakengard or Nier tidbits? Zero cameo? I'm not going to watch it if it's just a 99% retread of Automata's plot.
>>250237209>Has there been any deviation from the game's story yet? Any new Drakengard or Nier tidbits?yes
>>250237209Lily is the resistance camp captain instead of Anemone. There was omake mentioning night/day kingdoms and dragons were mentioned. It's only 7 episodes so far so it's hard to tell if they're going to have any major deviations yet
more kommander NOW
>>250237209Some scenes have changes, there are quite a bit of additional content and some stuff has been moved around, but I wouldn't say it diverged other than the Lily<->Anemone swap.
Where are people watching this? The bilibili link doesn't work anymore

>>250239426>>250239440>>250239457Wtf is this? How?
>>250239044>>2502390862B is so pretty
>>250239826The anime is dead
>>250239440Wtf is this? Is the anime finally diverging? Did Accord paint these?
>>250239826How the fuck does Aniplex manages to shit everything
>>250240086Painted by the long white haired dude
>>250240206But how this is possible? It's a fucking loop?
>>250240206Why Adam would paint them?
>>250240297My guess is that he tried to understand human and androids are the closest to human.
>>250240297He's also a 9S2B shipper.
>the only episodes so far with substantial 2B fanservice are 1 and 4I want to complain, but I feel that filtering out secondaries is the point and probably the better move in the long run.>>250239826This shit really doesn’t help, though.
>>250240097The moment the first delay hits it goes to shit because staff does multiple anime at the same time and of course additional full funding for delays usually isn't provided. More delays and quality drop off are only natural.
>Anime is delayed AGAIN.>/a/ keeps watching it anyways.Why do you KEEP doing this to yourselves?
>>250240784What the fuck are we supposed to do?Apply to be replace the chink sweatshop animators?

>>250239826What if this all part of Yoko Taro's keikaku
>>250239719what more delays? I keep hearing about delays but we've been getting new ep every weekwhat is going on
It is unironically over.
This was sexier than seeing her butt
>>250233946G-guys it's covid, honestly. It's not like we're incompetent amateurs unable to stick to the deadlines.
would you befriend them?
>>250242915>fuck Devola and Popola every night.>entire village hates you.Is it really worth it?
you may not realize it, butt 9S just sat on your face
>>250242845I mean I'm inclined to believe it is because everyone outsources to China and the Philippines. Deadlines have always been a concern for tv anime and when it comes down to it they just air sloppy unchecked garbage 90% of the time. Delays for simply being late are rare because you can cut a lot of your production safety net and make pretty much anything to broadcast, unless the workers you're relying on just aren't working.
>>250242845Why don't they just brute force the episode like mappa does also doesn't delaying the episode mean more loss for the production committee as they have to pay the broadcasting services for it.
>>250243126God damn this boy is ugly.I can see why 2B doesn't make a move.
>>250243225>>250243127is this jackass?
>>250243286Of course. Have you seen another tombot among the Resistance?
>2B doesn't take off her boots
>>250239440>finding the room of your shipperby the way, these were drawn by the VAs
>>250243502Sorry, 9S is the designated fanservice character of this show.
eat the mackerel anon
>>250243502You not into wet, synthetic-leather shoes?
>adam disconnects himself from the network and possibly kidnaps 9s before the alien ship get uncovered, also uncovering the road to copied city where he takes 9s towhat's this now? a divergence?
>>250240297Adam is very interested in 2B and 9S because of how humanlike they are.
>tons of operators>no new veiled blowjob fanart
>>250243746It's a shame that 9S is no match for Network boosted Adam/Eve unless he also starts drawing from the network.
>>250243718They're cutting the second goliath fight, the alien ship and Grun for more comfy moments and character interactions.
>>250243999>no pants>still wears thighsDo women really?
>>250243938Quite honestly those were basically worthless and had only a few good moments like 9S saving the day by taking control of the rocketsIf it means more copied city i'm all for it
So no le epic giant robot fight?Lame slice of life anime.
This was kino. Did they really skip animating this?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ur6blv6Wl_I
he was killed so many times, no wonder his arms look like that
>>250244155nooooo I wanted more CGI k*no !!!!
Weird how the best episodes are when it deviates from the game the most.
9S is getting some fuck action
VERY SPOOKY PICTURE DO NOT OPEN
>>250244345This scene is going to be interesting
>>250244325Probably because new stuff is way interesting than going 1:1
First half of episode looks like it was taken from Tarkovskiy movie
Thank fuck we got a lot of 9S screentime before the anime got delayed(AGAIN)
>>250244669God I love 9S
>>250244570Where's my ass shot?
Played it years ago, what is her problem again?
>I really love this boy>*Proceeds to kill him over and over again*>Woe is me!!!Why are women like this?
>>250244746White bitch is lying to everyone.Humans are long dead.Androids are sent down only to be abandoned.Both androids and machines keep the war going to maintain the status quo.
>>250243075>why dont they just bruteforce itWhat the fuck does this even mean. I have never read something so retarded before on this entire website.
>>250244155I wonder if Grun is going to happen later now or not at all. The story beats are getting mixed around now.
That WHORE took off his socks!
I finished my replay yesterday, the anime did some weird changes
>>250244894Weird how they played the Kaine's theme for this scene though. >>250244155They also skipped the second Engels fight and Mothership fight
Do we even know if this will have 24 episodes? I don't want them to end at route A/B
>>250244966At the rate this shit keeps getting delayed I am not sure anymore.
>>250244884Probably never. We might never see Hegel vs A2 kino fight if this keeps up.
>>250237209It starts out very similar, but I'll tell you, it starts doing its own thing very quickly. No major deviations yet though.
>>250244796>White bitchHmm i remember commander felt guilt about it too, and she redeemed it at the end but im not sure what the purpose of a2, i forgot her role
>>250244896He was so erotic in this episode...

>>250243558wait really? Source?
>>250239513I wasn't expecting Yoko Taro to acknowledge the fact that buildings would have disappeared by the timeline of the games... I guess he is a true nerd after all.
>>250244155I'll be honest, this is the most boring part of the game, and it'd have looked like shit with all the 3DCG.Shame they cut the mothership fight tho.
>>250239554He knew that the nerds would kill themselves from ecstasy if they saw Two-Bee feet.
Did they skip the part where 9S and 2B fight Adam and Eve underground? Surrounded by the old alien base
>>250245924the credits in the picture

>>250244036How is she going to sit without thighs?
>>250247109>>250243558I really like how the Nier actors and producers actually really seem to like their characters.
>9S becoming dangerously more curious every episode.
>>250247345He is going to die
>>250247739Imagine if this time, 9S is the one who dies and 2B is the one who goes insane.
9S is discovering the truth much more early than the game and commander knows that was him that was hearing the conversation, what this means?
>>250247770I fucking hope so, it's leading to this way to be honest. There's too much A2 things related with 2B to not be this.
what secrets is he hiding?
>Kaine's theme played when 2B took off the strip>They already mentioned twice about the flower on the hairWhy they are putting so much Kaine's reference on 2B? What the fuck is Taro planning with this?
>>250239719>>250239826Sucks to be you nierfags kek
>>250240784>It's delayed, therefore not funabsolutely retarded
>>250248070I dunno but it's A2 who's supposed to be the Kaine of Automata. She's got the personality.
>>250248491Yes, A2 is based on Kaine's data, I don't know if 2B is the same tho.
>>250242915Sure, I don't mind being friends with them.>>250244345Least it isn't N2 spooking us. Yet.
Was this shot really necessary?
>>250244725bluray release preorder now
>>250248908Yes. We have lots of fanservice of 2B, and it's fair to give him one, too.
>>250248908Whose decision was this?

>>250249530i can believe all that except the tie in to the sequel
>>250249530Post the 2ch link
>>250249530>game announced with animeNot happening especially with this schedule.
>>250249677Nier automata sold 7 million units and the cheap replicant remake is near to 2 million units, why do you think square enix would not want a sequel?
>>250249530>finale is supposed to tie in to the sequel nier game>please play the mobile for more eheInto the trash it goes
>>250249616i doubt this one too bc Yoko doesn't really do the same cast as main characters in a sequel
>>250249530Hes lying there's nothing like that
>>250249530Fakest shit I ever read
>>250249712>why do you think square enix would not want a sequel?Seeing how they completely fucked with Forsaken I don't really want any new Nier games.And there's no chance to advertise a sequel at the end of cheap anime, sorry, this is bullshit.
>>250249837>Cheap animeWhat? The quality has been amazing what the fuck are you on about?
>>250249723his will doesn't matter to squeenix. they will pull a drakengard 2 and he will like it.
>>250249530>9S A2 Adam and Eve become buddiesToo kino to be legit
>Hacks into the bunker>They notice>"There's no way they'll specifically know it was me">Says the boy that got killed more than 30 times for hacking in the fucking bunkerCute curious retard
>>250249723I can imagine Squeenix pressuring for that direction though. Gotta make up for the loss of Forspoken with guaranteed money from a 2B sequel
Damn, almost missed Adam here in this shot - left side
Here's the link of the automata thread on futaba https://may.2chan.net/b/res/1077700909.htmIt hasn't any leak here, the anon above is saying fake shit
>>250250330Futaba channel is not 2ch my friend
>>250249530non-factual and homosexual
>>250244966It's definitely going to be a single cour at this rate. Route A/B can be finished in another two or three episodes, all that's left is the underground, copied city and the cult/Eve. Route C doesn't need that much time for plot given that in the game it was mostly revisiting old areas. The resource box segments for instance were just fighting through waves of enemies with lore dumps inbetween, the important bits can be reworked into the tower ascent.
>>250250330>>2502503772ch thread: http://toro.2ch.sc/test/read.cgi/anime/1677989103/0-
I challenge you to find (1) anime that has been delayed this many fucking times.
>>25025049686 eighty six
>>250250496Didn't the latest JoJo take like a year for the second half of it?
>>250250491It has nothing there either
>>25025049686 had delays and recaps, i was very traumatized by the end
>>250250496Whatever the answer is there's a 100% chance it'll be aniplex shit
>>250250587>>250250683And both shows animated by A-1
>>250249530If this is real does this mean 9S will end up with A2 instead
>>250247912>what secrets is he hiding?That he has a pussy instead of penis.
>>250249999>The quality has been amazingTell me you're joking here.
>>250234596She's a shit character
>>250250803>A2&9S will have sex on 2B grave while Lily watchesToo kino to be true
>>250242915I don't befriend evil people.
>>250250803not gonna happen with how they are throwing so much of 2B and 9S together in anime and even outside of the anime like collabs and staff interviews.
>>250250988all the better to make you hurt
>Skipping the crater explosion that reveals the true aliens.>Skipping the seaside battle.>Going straight to 9S kidnapping.What does it mean???
>>250251042Copied city soon?
>>250251042Have they even mentioned Aliens in the anime?
>>250251042They are trying to scrap as much battle scenes/boss fights as possible because it would just be a worse version of the game.
>>250249999>The quality has been amazing Shut the fuck up faggot
>>250251042There's no way they're going to skip the alien ship part, they'll definitely just put it somewhere else in the timeline. Maybe 2B will discover it on her own while 9S is AWOL
>>250251189That's what it seems like, maybe too much work to animate so they'll skip fights altogether.
>>250251038Just to see them together in the end? Worth it. I'll take more angst as I can just so to see them happy together. Yoko is very sappy to romance with how much he keeps making more content of them together, so he'll make it happen.
>>250239044I like the change but I'm also really surprised they went for removing the blindfolds so early. Sure it's in the OP as well but at least for me the blindfolds coming off at the very end made for a massive impact so I'm hoping this doesn't detract from it.
>>250250868>>250251216We don't talk about episode 1.
>>250244040Grun was fucking kino, fuck you
>>250250496>he doesn't know
>>250250496it's still one time short from isekai ojisan
>>250242273>>250242321>>250242437>boy fan servicecute cute cute
>>250237209I kind of agree with the others about there having not been any big deviations but I also kind of disagree. The most obvious thing is that in this timeline Lily and Anemone were switched -- so there's some flashbacks and stuff that give a different version of events from the stage plays. The order of events here is also switched around, or things take place in different places -- I'm not sure how big the repercussions of this are. We meet another Emile and have flashbacks from Replicant. There's also an episode focusing on a novella side story. The biggest thing though, imo, is that our characters are for the most part investigating rather than fighting their way through the story -- like they don't kill anyone in the forest kingdom, because A2 has already massacred them.With everything that's happening I wouldn't be surprised if we end up with a completely different ending than the original game. In fact, given Yoko Taro's history, I would be very surprised if he didn't take the opportunity to give us a new ending.
>>250251541What was so good with grun? Even the OST is one of Tomato's weaker ones.
>>250249176a true man of culture
>>250251964stage plays and novellas always have different things but the events play up mostly same.
>>250251996Grun's boss theme was from Nier Replicant you uncultured swine.https://youtu.be/mNN6KKfdMJM
>>250251996Grun was quite fun, just a little bit, but yeah, it's not my favorite. Fight is too long that even if I like shmup, Grun was dragging for too long that it became boring for me. The only thing I like is the part where they shoot the missile through its mouth. That was pretty cool. Oh, and where you can see the Grun upright on the horizon after the battle, that shit was awesome.
>>250250089>Cute curious retardThe best kind
>>250252324And it was a worse remix
>>250251103Eve hinted at it in the last puppet show.>Hey nii-chan I found this place underground like a plant bulb>>250251222My guess is it's integrated into the Copied City segment. They're both underground and right next to eachother.
>>250242321Him sitting on me would kill me...I still want it.
Anyone got a webm of the full end segment?
>>250250496haduki, ojisan, beatless and many others
>>250240297Adam's whole thing in the game was that he was pissed off that him and his brother were dumped into this world without any one to learn from or anything and so he had to educate himself from human books and stuff but as a machine had difficulty understanding human emotions and concepts -- which led to him becoming obsessed in trying to understand. Ultimately with his final battle being about him trying to understand what death is. So it makes sense that he would be spending all his time reading human books and emulating human customs and stuff. In this scene the first paintings shown are childlike scribbles before getting to the big paintings, including the one that was just painted. Probably he taught himself how to paint because he was trying to understand why humans did it or some human concept related to art or something.>>250242718>>250243126I thought this was super interesting. In the game and stage plays the act of removing your blindfold is used as a metaphor for no longer averting your gaze from the truth. Similarly, operators have veils that cover their mouths as a metaphor representing the fact that they do not speak the truth. I wonder if maybe them removing their blindfolds here means that they have wordlessly accepted the fact that command is full of shit.>>250243746With the satellite jamming and stuff I wonder if that means we're going straight to the copied city after this, which is crazy because in the games that doesn't happen until (chapter 8) after the city is destroyed (in chapter 5).>>250244155I don't remember why Grun breaks free in the game. I know it happens after the ayys are revealed and before the copied city but maybe something necessary just hasn't happened yet.https://youtu.be/3nECN9FKTB0>>250246646Nice catch!>>250246817No.
>>250252702How much does 9S weigh?
>>250249530>sequel announced You almost got me.
>>250244746Her backstory is more fleshed out in the stage plays. There's an episode in the anime that goes over the main beats though. Basically what this anon said >>250245859
>>250253245That's from the game right?
>>250239426>>250239440That room is almost exactly like Popola's library room from Replicant.
i havent seen the ep yet and cant till later. How was it? no spoilers pls
>>250253552what did Yoko Kojima mean by this
>>250253430fun, very different from game, even some horror elements thrown in.
>>250253430Yoko Taro trolled everyone by sexualizing 9S instead of 2B.Based gay shota lover.
Grun would be kino with a great adaptation for battles, if it's like episode 1, It's better to skip it.
>>250253148Less than 2B
Does anyone else think the anime is just better than the game at telling the story so far?
>>250253130then who are the ones who hear no truth?
>>250253919I also think this
>>250253919Better for the interaction between 2B and 9S yes absolutely, that shit was barely touched on before the reveal.Everything else is merely different so far, a lot less subtle and way more blatant but still good.
>>250253857As she should.Jackass doesn't even have official game art and she's still better than 2B
>>250253919Agreed. And I'm gonna be honest that I am really liking this than the game just because of the way they handle the characters. Anime for character and story development, game for action and metaness.
>>250253919The core of the game is done better, but there's definite less breadth and detail.
>>250247912I think this was about the nuts used as a lure that are kept in the pouch. I think it's a gag based on an explanation saito or someone gave about what's in the pouch in an interview or something. If I remember correctly they elaborate in the puppet scene at the end of the episode.>>250240784I'd much rather it get delayed than end up with a shitty rush job like Kumo Desu Ga or like Seiken Densetsu. As far as I'm concerned they can take as long as they need.>>250248608That's just speculation. We don't really have confirmation at this point.>>250249530Kino if true, but hard to believe we'd get a sequel that ties in directly into Automata instead of a "Nier" game that takes place in some entirely random time and place.>>250253395>>250239765HOLY FUCK YOU'RE RIGHT! I just rewatched the scene and compared it with screenshots. It's almost exactly the same. Even the books are laid out the exact same way. Only differences are>The board with the pictures pinned to it used to have a map.>There's a couch in popola's room.>In Replicant we see the room from the side and part of it is cut off. It seems that part of what is cut off includes both an extra small table with books and a second doorway to the side of popola's desk (the one 9S walks through).Other than that
>>250254041>>250254049>>250254163>>250254202I think the main reason for this is 2B and 9S are actually interacting with the world. In automata, the game is more focused on the robots than the resistance and the main 2 androids which is fine for individual stories but it makes it harder to care about main androids and the resistance when they barely interact with eachother.2B basically emotionally numbs herself and A2 has no screen time leading 9S as the only engaging character despite all of them being fine characters, however here it's alot more overt so we can sympathise with 2B a bit more and see why she'd like 9S.I think losing details like that shit grum fight is well worth it if the core story is solid, thats why i liked replicant so much
>>250254274Here is a screenshot from the episode. You can see how about 1/3 of the left side is cut off in Replicant.
>>250254323Yeah Replicant is much better in spite of the less complex gameplay. The characters and world are fully realized.
>>250254274>>250254333I'm loving these Replicant connections, it's improving the story a lot just with those changes
>>250254299I know she's a robot, but you shouldn't let one draw her.
>>250253874Confirmed. Guess Grun is already dead now in this timeline. Maybe it was killed the first time it rose up (if I remember correctly, in the game they said it attacked long ago and they couldn't defeat it).
>>250254560It could be just an oversight. It's only shown in that one scene.
>>250253552jobbed so hard it's already dead by the start of the anime
>>250254592I don't like how fucking sexy they made commander White.She wasn't sexy in the game.But in the anime I want her to whip me with her riding crop.
literally did nothing wrong
>>250253919They're definitely different. The game made you kill a bunch so it could make you see it from a new perspective in the next playthroughs. The anime is hitting the same story beats in a more straightforward way, without choices or violence. I think both storytelling methods are good in their medium. If you adapted the anime's story beats into the game then it would be a weaker story -- and similarly if you just adapted the story from the game into the anime then it would probably be awful.
>>250234596Not in my bed.
>>250247109>>250243558took this from gogoanime's comment section BUT''A lot of the drawings that 9S saw in that unsettling room at the end of the episode were drawn by pretty much the entire main cast themselves, which include the VAs for 2B, 9S, A2, Pod 042, Pod 153, Pascal, Adam, Eve, Commander, 6O, 21O, Lily, Devola/Popola (the twins), Emil (the big head in the tree), and Jackass.A1 even hired other VAs unrelated to the show to provide some drawings, presumably because they’re good at it: Kito Akari (Nezuko in Demon Slayer, Inglis in Reborn to Master the Blade), Waki Azumi (Senko in Helpful Fox Senko-San, Special Week in Uma Musume), and Tokui Sora (Niko Yazawa from Love Live).''
>>250254782he was turning black so he is wrong now.
You can delay it as much as you want I will not play the games
COVID-SAMA I KNEEL
What happened to all the Lily androids that they used to use as operators in the Bunker? Did they get scavenged for parts or just decommissioned and destroyed?
>>250250491>>250250330Not here, anon is full of shit.
>>250253245Does this mean the resistance still has their aircraft carrier since the big battle didn't happen the way it did in the game?
>>250255504What are you talking about? Lily isn't YoRha, why would she be in The Bunker?
>>250255965So what were those Lily-looking androids in the Bunker during ep6? Maybe those were pre-Yorha models since Yorha seemed to be new at the time?
>>250254274>I'd much rather it get delayed than end up with a shitty rush jobThe first delay was worth the wait. I hope that trend will continue.Though I think the first delay pretty much said it would be back after rebroadcasting the first 3 episodes, whereas this time the news is just up in the air.
>>250251996the ost leading up to him + his reveal were kino. The fight itself and the OST during his fight were not the best but still good
>>250256160Bunker came with YoRHas. It was autonomously constructed by Pods on orders faked by Number 9. The only outsider is Commander White.
So they're not doing the sea monster/aircraft carrier battle? What a disappoint. That was a cool boss battle involving 2B/9S, other elite YoRHa flight units, YoRHa laser weapons fired from orbit, shore-based missile batteries and even Pascal and the other village robots came to help. Would have been a good way to end the first cour. There is another cour right?
>>250255272Interesting method, which made it look more authentic in conveying artists, or the growth (quick growth) of an artist.Gotta be memorable for the actors also. Some of them are very very good. Nice easter egg.They could have been lazy with it and pretend Adam was taking pictures the whole time, but the differences in artwork make it more unsettling, like more time and passion went into the work of a "stalker".
>>250256470what you talkin 'bout willis? that's crazy talk.
>>250256500It can still happen. Eve made Network go batshit insane, Grun can show up as a result.
I know this is /a/, but it may also be the best thread to ask:How worth is ng+? I don't mean the new routes, playing as 9S and A2 after beating B2's route. Does ng+ add new stuff aside from going for the other ending?
>>250256160These girls are just YoRha units of some kind. I think they were present in the game as well, in the desks in front of the commander. I can't verify right now though.>>250256573It is crazy but it's true. That's from one of the novellas. It's a different number 9 -- though I can't remember if it's implied or confirmed that 9S is based on him. The whole YoRha conspiracy goes deep, the entire thing was a huge psyop from the beginning.
>>250256760>though I can't remember if it's implied or confirmed that 9S is based on himIt's literally a personality number 9, prototype of our Nines. Essentially a different version of him. So yeah, he's the beginning and end of all yorha.The craziest thing is not his relation to Number 9, it's how Zinnia's personality data ended up in Pod 042 so in the end it's a story about a dad saving his kids.
>>250256754I don't remember how new game plus works. Isn't that where you basically jump straight into a chapter select and can choose to replay any chapter in case you missed any quests or whatever (and can jump out of any chapter whenever?).I haven't played in a while. Last time I loaded it up I fooled around for a bit trying to fight Emil to test my new controller and didn't remember until later that if you don't collect your body you lose your drops (meaning I lost a lot of my best chips). So I'm not sure I'll jump into it any time soon unless I just flat out replay it.
>>250256549>>250255272I mean this isn't particularly surprising considering the best track in the original's game soundtrack was sung by the full dev team
>>250253919yeahthe game suffers from being a gameat least here the story is given to you seamlessly, instead of in sporadic bouts after doing a long ass session of dogshit fetch quests and backtracking
Will they manage to fuck everything up in a brand new way?
>>250253919Taro didn't lie when he made this Automata 1.1. It does indeed flesh out a lot of details and makes the story more focused while providing a lot of fanservice for people into Nier stuff. We got god damn Jackass in a bikini for fuck's sake, i remember /ndg/ times when people would fucking kill for good lewds of her.
>>250251996I really liked his backstory revealed in theatre during B route. Also music was fucking great and his ENTER was cool as fuck. Boss fight itself wasn't that good though.
They will definitely announce a replicant anime at the end right?
>>250245856Why didn't 2B take off her shoes?
>>250258237Sorry, it's going to be a Drakengard 2 adaption by MAPPA.
>>250244450I got high expectations for how they deal with the mindrape, especially this part that's ambiguous in every translation, but due to the english language and how it gets censored in text format, minds quickly jump to one particular word.Though I would laugh if they completely cut the line out. will they still achieve the same sense of violation in the anime format...
>>250258237God I wish. I wanna see the mermaid part animated.
>>250233946More robot bitches for BenderHey sexy mama
>>250258276She's not shota bait like 9S being a goofy kid
>>250258448Same, that one was sad as hell
>no barefoot 2Bfuck this show. yoko taro is a hack
>>2502585932B doesn't have feet. Her boots are just her legs that detach at the knee.
>>250258448I wonder if Grun was created by Network based on Louise. Getting tossed into the ocean and longing for mother/father while also being insanely strong
>>250250803>>250250936will he call her toobie during sex?
>>250258734Grun is named after German socialist/philosopher like many of the other robots.>Grün argued that humans are material beings who are by nature social and need the community of others to survive. From Feuerbach he adopted the thesis that the idea of God is merely an alienated representation of human sociality or 'species being', reflecting the alienating and unjust character of actual human social conditions.It's ironic that Grun was exiled to the bottom of the ocean to be alone for all eternity.
>>250239062>AExZRn.jpg (278 KB, 955x537)Imagine 2B doing this in bare feet
>>250258448I don't think anons can be trusted with Louise.
>>250244964>Weird how they played the Kaine's theme for this scene though.Lunar tear
>>250253148129.9kgalmost 300 pound shota butt to our face
>>250239177Jackass is actually quite pretty. It's just the short hair that makes her look tomboyish.
>>250259448>It's just the short hair that makes her look tomboyishtomboy is more than a short haircut thoughbut there is a masculine quality about her even if she has a feminine body
>>250259429Are you homosexual or did traps give you a fetish for shotas?
>>250239137Why doesn't Jackass have seams at her joints like 2A and presumably 2B does? Is she a more advanced android model or something?
>>2502597162B doesn't have exposed joints, A2 is probably just worn down since she hasn't been back to the bunker for maintenance
>>250239095>>250239102>>250239116>lesbian robotdisgustingBut that means you can build a harem with her?
Has the series ever explained in universe why the side of the world that's stuck facing the sun isn't an uninhabitably hot nightmare and why the side facing away isn't a frozen hellscape?
>>250259858You mean thaz the earth doesn't rotate in Nier Automata?That woudld also mean the end of the surface.
>>250259858No, it never has. It's barely touched upon even in side materials.>>250259944It does not rotate anymore.
Why are there robot fish in the sea? What purpose do they serve?
>>250260052Wouldn't that mean that the atmosphere disappears?Do these robots actually sleep?
>>250260052>It does not rotate anymore.Temperature shit can be explained away but what's responsible for the gravity on the surface?
>>250259858The sun is relatively low in Nier Automata, so tokyo is close to the terminator, which explains why temperature would be tolerable there.India would be a scorching desert thoAlso picrel is a mistake, america is canonically in the eternal night
>>250260052>>250260095>>250260151>>250260184>>250260190>Yoko Taro: Small indie company, prease undastando.
>>250260095wtf they are robots?
>>250260095It's explained in the game. I think it was the aliens trying to cut off humanity's food supply by making robotic fish that would kill and outcompete real fish.
>>250260444There's gestals, replicants, androids, aliens, tidal locked planet, moon blowing up, robots taking the world, dragons, magic, salt demons and a bunch more.It's honestly a bit much. Series would have probably been better had someone told Yoko to drop some of the themes
>>250249530Fake and gay
>>250260528They looked like machine lifeform fish that seemed to coexist with the regular fish. I didn't see any robot animals on land so I was wondering why there are robot fish in the sea.
>>250253370>Her backstory is more fleshed out in the stage plays.Taro's funny like that. And if you want to know some really major shit about how Drakenguard and Nier fits together... go play FFXIV.
>>25025980990% of Yorha is women, lesbians is implied
>all the delays are being faked to have the audience rewatch past episodes like players had to replay the game
really nice episode today, boy we're really getting off the rails of the game now. finally starting to get exciting to see just where this thing is going
>>250260536I guess that makes sense. Does that mean there are also robotic predators on land to kill off all the moose and boars too?
Will she show up?
>>250244155Like they have enough money to animate this properly
>jumping straight into 9s' mindrape and 2b's rescue mission into the copied citydoesn't this skip like 2 whole chapters at least? but it'll be nice to see it play out visually instead of textalso that conversation the commander was having with the masculine voice didn't happen in the game did it? cause tha commander already knows humanity doesn't exist on the moon, and that masculine voice is usually associated with prerecorded messages sent out to boost droid moralle, so what's going on there?
>>250260778no I killed her
>>250261400You went on a redguard hunting tour?
Why is there a shot of a little boy sitting on my face
>i thought the flower was between her tits but she was holding it with her hands>seconds later she actually puts it there
>>250261695cause they know you wanted it
>>250261780Maybe you have Haruhi's powers of reality warping?
>>250260762Maybe the machines used to and that explains why the only moose and boar left are the ones so strong they can one shot advanced super military androids.Should note that they stopped making the fish machines some time ago, so if there was a plan to kill off land animals they probably halted that as well.
>>250261344>that conversation the commander was having with the masculine voice didn't happen in the game did it?Nope, it's anime original.>that masculine voice is usually associated with prerecorded messagesShe's probably talking with the pod network on the moon that run the server.
I can deal with them cutting out all the battles, but no aliens are dead twist, eh? bold.
>>250250936I hope you've got the uncropped file to share with everyone.
>>250261896I wanted it.
>>250257687Are those ZILs?
>>250251275speedwatcher, they already showed their eyes at the end of ep 1
I wanna **** 2b with my big white **** and then **** her with a **** until I *** all up in her ***** ******
why is this industry retarded? just finish your damn show before you decide to air it. it's fucking simple.
>>250262584>I wanna slap 2b with my big white mackerel and then clean her with a pressure washer until I get out the fish oil all up in her circuit boards
>>250259069I guess that's the penalty for being full of shit.

>>250262796>whole episode of white text on black background for the forest of illusiontoo kino for television
>>250262796Mola Ram much?
>>250253919not at all, except maybe on the basic bitch electric sheep themes. the world is half as fleshed out. hardly any emil.
>>250262796>Shitty flowerEvery single post-credits scene should be Nier farming.
>>250260184That's not how gravity works anon. The only difference the lack of centrifugal force would make is that being on the equator would weigh the same amount as they do on the poles.
reincarnation sisters... will they throw a bone at us??
These androids are just humans with machine bodies which is actually one of the current goals of transhumanism. It's highly likely that within a few hundred years we humans will give up our organic bodies for machine bodies that live forever and can easily access cyberspace. The androids should just find a way to make peace with the machines and live their lives peacefully. Since they don't need food or air they could also colonize the rest of the solar system or even the nearby stars fairly easily.
>>250264026I guess I'm retarded
>>250264066what even is the story in reincarnation, is the name supposed to imply they are in the Ark?
>>250233946how many episodes was this supposed to be again?
>>250263031>alternate post-credits for the finale
>>250264287story is split between arcs, the first one is about the girl and the monster, the second one is about a brother and sister, You progress through the story by restoring a weapon story behind it, and spoilers: they all have a very Yoko Taro twist ending for both sides, specially this second arc, newest and probably last arc (before eos) is coming soon
>>250264572>2B with a tiny Zero in her boob window.
>>250237209Mixing Zaregoto/Nissoin with NierThey follow the same type of storyline.
>>250264637pfft. As a reminder though, The Flower is not a Lunar Tear, even if it looks like one. Taro said so, don't ask him about it.
>>250258448SinoAlice covered that.
>>250249530Shit if real.
>>250243746>those black bars appearing little by little just like when the game enter in cutsceneLoved it!Also, did they skip the fact the aliens are already dead and Adam and Eve talking with the 2? Because I really feel like we are going straight to Adam last battle
>>250249530Fake as shit, your not the uncle from Nintendo.The 1st line shows that 2ch didn't even play the game. >Adam discovered the truth in this loop alreadyHe had access to the machine network he already knew in the game very early on and it's not a loop. IF you premise is wrong then what follows is completely wrong, sounds like a post to Taro to get people arguing.
>>250246996what is the fifth one?
>>250264066Every other piece of Nier canon is being referenced, so of course it will.
>>250265214They skipped it because the aliens are actually alive this time
>>250265293>it's not a loopThe entire universe is a loop, that's how all routes of all games are canon
I miss Anemone, who cares about this Lily bitch.
we'll see him next week right bros?
>>250265546We better, I need to hear The Dark Colossus Destroys All
>>250265428Okay fine, tell me where exactly it says it's a loop.
>>250265419After 10000 years in a hostile environment??
>>250265546It would be strange to skip the big sea battle after Rose mentioned having to eventually fight the Pacific Ocean monsters in episode 6.
>>250249709>>250253213Announcing a new game could happen and at the end of the anime is the most logical time. I doubt it's a direct sequel but it makes sense. I mean it's not like the important game devs work on the anime.
>>250257476You can make an argument their failure is a good thing or otherwise irrelevant, because of it was a vital point then Accord could have just suicide bombed the party several hundred times to guarantee that D&P win
>It's a fucking loopSomeone stop Taro

>>250264287A place called the Cage which is being used to store the different stories of mankind and has the ability to manifest people from either the data or actually pulling them from their timelines. First a girl and monster travel the Cage then a brother and sister.Its ambiguous if the Cage was made by man or just repurposed.Regardless the Cage is being run by the ghost things you see and unknown admins including Accord who makes all the weapons seen in game.Also the admins might be a watcher reference because speaking of them is grounds for the ghosts to get killed.>>250264066Accord will reference the cage when she appears
>>250266208wow that's fackin gay
>>250245856>it's harder to move in waterIs it just bad translation? How would she not know something so basic? At least in the game there's ankle deep water like that right outside the resistance camp, your telling me that in years of operation she never once stepped in a puddle?
>Grun already dead and in the same pose when defeated in the game>Pascal being suspicious>More Nier and Drakengard references than normal>Adam doing more stuff>9S already corrupted and fuckedAnime original route here we gooooo
>>250266509pretty pissed there's no Grun battle since it would have been fucking EPIC especially considering how good they did with the songstress fight. but yeah, it was maybe too daunting of a task. would have taken a couple episodes to do it justice i guess
>>250266609no, just an actual budgetbut this show is literally chinese sweatshop tier
>>250254333Note that the candles on the walls are unlit and the chandeliers are removed and replaced with an electric light-bulb. So at some point occupants got sick of replacing candles and installed electricity.

>>250257425>at least here the story is given to you seamlessly, instead of in sporadic bouts after doing a long ass session of dogshit fetch quests and backtrackingYoko Taro complained that he was given a specific playtime length to target for. That was why there was so much Game+ content. He would rather make a shorter game but Square Enix wouldn't allow it.
>>250264598Why is the doujin mirrored?

>>250264340Man, that's just gay. Really shoulda been 2B doing it.
>>250267229>>250267247this Grun has been dead for decades, maybe centuries. this is already the next iteration of the same plot being played on repeat to eternally extend the war
