NIER: AUTOMATA VER1.1A SEASON 2 PLOT
In the finale of NieR: Automata Ver1.1a Season 1, “Flowers for m[A]chines”, commanders go against the orders and use the bunker laser to destroy Adam.
The Pods detect Adam s’ signal in the crater and 2B and 9S head down to finish him off.
When they arrive, Adam is already wounded, and before dying, he accepts his fate as it will reunite him with Eve.
Adam s’ death also shuts the nearby machines, which puts an end to their ambush.
Unfortunately, 9S is infected with a logic virus due to hacking Adam, and 2B is forced to mercy kill him and breaks down over his death.
However, 9S manages to save himself by transferring his consciousness to a nearby Machine.
In a post credit scene, during his time getting repaired at the Bunker, 9S connects with the Bunker’s server.
Sensing an anomaly, 9S prevents himself and 2B’s data from synching with the Bunker server.
As he investigates, he accidentally triggers the server’s defense system, and he encounters twin girls wearing red dresses who claim they are observing the androids and help 9S discover the truth about Project YoRHa.
He learns that Humanity has long been extinct and that Project YoRHa was created to raise android morale by fooling them into believing humans are still living on the Moon.
9S then wakes up and responds to 2B’s request for backup as he is secretly observed by the girl in the red dress.
Since the anime is based on the game and not source material like NieR: Automata Ver1.1a manga, the sequel will continue from where the first season left off.
In the NieR: Automata Ver1.1a Season 2, you should definitely expect the secret of command to be revealed.
Judging by the frames from the teaser, the viewer will clearly see the continuation of the A2 storyline and the past of Devola and Popola.
In the trailer, we see the commander reading a declaration about the next phase of the war.
We also witness some glimpses where 9S and 2B are fighting with machine lifeforms.
There was a glimpse where we could see Devola and Papola in a dangerous situation as the war between YohRa and Androids resumes.
