NieR: Automata Anime Episodes Guide – Release Dates, Times & More

NieR Automata

The critically acclaimed video game franchise NieR has finally received an anime adaptation. Hopefully, NieR Automata Ver1.1a will draw even more fans into the fascinating war between androids and aliens.

In case you’re wondering, the NieR: Automata anime is a close adaptation of the video game’s plot. But even though it won’t be an original story, there will likely be some discrepancies. Yoko Taro, NieR: Automata’s game director said in an interview that: “The title Nier: Automata was a story we created to be a game, so copying it as is wouldn’t make an interesting story for an anime. So I brought up the idea of changing things around.”

Long-time fans of the franchise will probably want to get their hands on the episodes as soon as they drop. This NieR: Automata Ver1.1a episode guide will let you know when each episode will air, right down to the minute.

A new NieR: Automata anime episode will release every Sunday for those in Europe and America, with the show premiering in Japan and Australia the following day because of timezone differences.
