Some Nier: Automata Fans Made An Awesome Cartoon

A team of just six people is to thank for this Nier short, whose mix of game-related action and 1990s Liquid TV-ish style is very good.


The actual short (excluding credits) only runs for just over a minute, but there’s so much going on—and so much animation—that it feels a lot longer.

The short’s director was Vincent Chansard, a student at the prestigious animation school Gobelins, whose impressive output we’ve featured several times here before.

Thanks T P!

Just another reminder that I really need to start Automata one of these days..its still sitting unopened on my shelf, shamefully relegated to my ever-growing PS4 backlog.
