Nier Automata Ver1.1a, The Anime is releasing their last 4 episodes back to back on July 23. The anime gained popularity with the release of Nier Automata, the video game. The game is an action RPG with great lore and story. The success of the game instinctively led to the making of the anime. Mostly following the story on the games but also focusing world building and lore. The game also has weirdly named dlc called 3C3C1D119440927. Anyway the show is great and it’s nearing it’s end.
