NieR: Automata Ver1.1a, an anime based on Square Enix's action RPG "NieR: Automata," is scheduled to begin airing on January 7, 2023.
Recently, "Promotion File 008" was released. It means that 8 videos have been released so far. As a person who played the original work, the videos are faithful to the original work. However, the producer, Mr. Yoko Taro, said that it would be different from the game version, and there must be something, especially since it is "NieR." I am both excited and worried about it.
A special show announcing the latest information on "NieR: Automata Ver1.1a" was released on December 28, 2022, and it was a great opportunity to hear valuable stories and see the life-size "Virtuous Treaty" and "Virtuous Contract."
And since it is a special show to announce the latest information, there will be the latest news about the NieR: Automata Ver1.1a!
Promotion File 009 is now available! The theme song artist has been determined!
OP by Aimer, ED by amazarashi!
The newly revealed NieR: Automata Ver1.1a Promotion File 009 is the latest video featuring "Devola" and "Popola" in addition to characters featured in the previously released Promotion File.
For those who have played the games, there are probably scenes you have seen before. I am really looking forward to seeing how they will be portrayed in the anime.
As for the songs in the video, the opening theme of "NieR: Automata Ver1.1a" will be Aimer's new song "escalate," and the ending music will be amazarashi's new song "Antinomy"!
I am happy and honored to be entrusted with the opening theme for the "NieR: Automata Ver1.1a" anime.
I created "escalate" as the opening theme for the world of "NieR: Automata" to assemble a beautiful and glorious song that would capture the pain and despair the girls feel at the beginning of each episode of their story.
I wish this song could go into the hearts held captive by "NieR: Automata."
We have worked together on the game "NieR: Automata" before, and now we have the opportunity to work on the ending of the anime "NieR: Automata Ver1.1a".
I appreciate it. Thank you very much.
Even though I am just a fan of the Nier series, I am honored to be given this role again, and I tried my best to create a song that fits the ending of Nier Automata, and I hope you like it.
I named the song "Antinomy" to express this emotional conflict, where something you believe in can be turned on its head in an instant, or something you think is good may end up hurting the other person.
If we can convey the pain and hatred felt by androids and mechanical life forms, as well as the hesitation that comes with having love, as part of the animation, we will have done our part.
I can feel that the music expresses the vision of the world of "NieR: Automata." I can't wait to hear it in full song!
Recently, Aimer's song "残響散歌," the theme song for the anime "Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba (season 2)", has become a big hit. She enchanted the audience with her unique, husky, powerful voice.
And if you are a fan of "NieR: Automata," you must be thinking, "The ending is amazarashi?"
Yes, the ending theme is by amazarashi!
amazarashi has previously worked with NieR: Automata to output the collaboration single, Inochi ni Fusawashii (命にふさわしい). The song and its video may have moved many people.
The music video is available on the amazarashi Official YouTube Channel.
If you are new to "NieR: Automata" with "NieR:Automata Ver1.1a," listen to this song once before watching it, and then listen to it again after the final episode.
