NieR: Automata could delay its fourth episode

Previously, different sources from the anime industry had already commented that the production of the anime adaptation of NieR: Automata he was in quite a bit of trouble, and it seems that the new news is confirming this information. It should be noted that “production” is completely different from “adaptation”, so the series could “look pretty” but be a total mess behind the scenes.

Well, the popular leaker OECUF shared an update informing that the fourth episode of the anime NieR: Automata Ver1.1a will be delayed indefinitely and will instead re-air episodes 1 through 3 in Japan. It’s quite early for a series to go off the air, which would show that there are problems from the early stages of production.

However, it should also be noted that this information is not yet official, but rather a leak. Yes ok OECUF has provided leaks that have ended up being confirmed in the past, there can always be a chance that the information is wrong. In the end it’s better wait for an official confirmation when the third episode airs this weekend.
