Major anime series delayed due to Covid

At the height of the coronavirus pandemic, countless anime franchises were forced to postpone installments, movies, and other projects in the medium. Unfortunately, COVID-19 continues to throw some major monkey wrenches at some major series, and a recent fan favorite has indefinitely postponed future installments. While this isn’t the first time this particular series has been delayed, this is arguably one of the biggest delays the video game adaptation has faced to date.

Nier: Automata Ver 1.1a is an anime adaptation of the popular video game Nier: Automata, in which players take control of androids to battle against a world where robots reign supreme and humanity is in its final throes. The game debuted in 2017, and one of the entry’s big hooks was the idea that players would have to beat the video game multiple times to learn the full story behind this world. The news was shared by the production committee behind the creation of the series, stating that the ninth episode and subsequent episodes have been postponed indefinitely due to the impact COVID-19 has had on their offices.

Nier: Automata Delay

The official Nier: Automata Ver 1.1a Twitter account shared the disheartening news that episode nine of the series would be postponed indefinitely along with future episodes. Earlier, the anime adaptation released the English Dub for the series on Crunchyroll.

If you haven’t had a chance to check out this video game adaptation, Crunchyroll has the episodes on its streaming service and has listed the following description: “NieR: Automata tells the story of androids 2B, 9S and A2 and their struggle to reclaim the machine-driven dystopia overrun by powerful machines. Humanity has been driven from Earth by mechanical beings from another world. In a final attempt to take back the planet, the human resistance sends a force of android soldiers to destroy the invaders. Now a war is raging between machines and androids… A war that could soon reveal a long-forgotten truth of the world.”
