■ Yogi Gautama (Director) Comment

It is no exaggeration to say that the work of the original animation is a luck of time. This time, the miracle coincidence and a miracle overlapped, and the work called TIER: Automata was undertaken, and even if you are now able to touch the new work as much as you can now, you can now do the most. We hope that we can show the new possibilities of Near.

■ Yoko Taro (Original Director) Comment

Looking at the storyboards, etc., while inheriting the image of the game, the anime is doing what the anime could not be done by cutting the anime cut and the expression of the character, and doing what the game could not be d1. Very impressive. I hope this will be a painting that people who play the game will be able to see.


■ Yew Ashikaga (2B role) Comment

The staff are all full of love, and I’m excited that it will be a good anime. Please look forward to it.

■ Katsuki Heine (9s) Comment

I am very happy to animate. 9s shouted quite a bit in the second half of the game, but how much to shout in anime… I’m a little excited now. I will do my best, so please look forward to the completion.
