As an anime-only viewer, I was really getting into NieR, and the stories of 2B and 9S and Adam and Eve looked finally ready to connect. Unfortunately, Covid doesn’t care about narrative momentum or my anime viewing preferences, and so the series has yet again been delayed, with episodes 9 and beyond to air at a later date to be determined.
Thankfully, it’s not a matter of if but simply when the remainder of the series airs. But as nice as it is, far more important than the anime re-airing is the short and long-term physical and mental health of the production staff, so relatively speaking it’s really not that hard to be patient.
Now for some good news: Re:Zero is getting a third season!
