Released back in 2017, the Nier Automata game became a surprise hit. Despite being from a fairly niche series, Nier Automata became a success thanks to its memorable story and action-packed gameplay.

Although it had been years since the game was released, an anime adaptation was announced. And to the delight of fans, the original Japanese voice cast from the game was brought back.

These include Yui Ishikawa (Mikasa in Attack on Titan) as 2B and Natsuki Hanae (Tanjiro in Demon Slayer) as 9S.

While it was one of the bigger shows of Winter 23, the hype for it was derailed back in January as Aniplex announced a delay for the series.

The anime finally resumed airing on February 19, and since then, new episodes have been released weekly.

This should mean the anime won’t get any more delays until its end.
