NieR: Automata was released back in 2017 as a long-awaited sequel to the cult classic PS3 game NieR, thus expanding on the original universe in the best possible way. And while the original game by Yoko Taro received mixed reviews – the story and the characters, as well as the music, received absolute acclaim, while the graphics and the gameplay were criticized – NieR: Automata became an absolute hit, surpassing all expectations with over 6 million copies sold worldwide. On the fifth anniversary of the game, it was announced that NieR: Automata would be getting an anime adaptation, titled NieR: Automata Ver1.1a, thus becoming the first installment of Taro’s games to receive such recognition. In honor of that, we have decided to give you a full watch order of the NieR anime series.
