  8. tl;dr
  9. 2B had killed him at least 6 times before the events of Nier: Automata. By that point 9S already were able to retain memories, and he was fine with 2B killing him over and over again. pod 153 was the one in charge of monitoring when 9S illegally accesses bunker server, and notifies 2B when 9S needs to be "terminated". 2B was deeply tortured by her actions.

  25. Act 1 December 29th
  26. 2B (Voice Over): Everything that lives is designed to end. We are perpetually trapped, in a never-ending spiral of life and death. Is this a curse? Or some kind of punishment? I often think about the god who blessed us with this cryptic puzzle, and wonder if we’ll ever have the chance to kill him.
  27. On screen: December 29th
  28. 9S (struggling painfully): Why, 2B, why….why!?
  29. Pod153 (VO): The pure, wide blade pierced through 9S’ abdomen. Crimson blood is dripping.
  30. 2B (hiding her pain): Because you accessed classified secrets.
  31. 9S: But….2B….Believe me….
  32. Pod 153 (VO): 9S’ body function is declining. Heartbeat dropping. Body temperature dropping. Motor function defective. Pupil dilating. All parameters malfunctioning. The boy said his last words.
  33. 9S: It hurts….hurts….really hurts….ahhhh.
  34. SE: The sound of heart flatlining bi------ (9S is dead. Count 1).
  35. 2B: (can’t hold back the tears): sobbing…sobbing…
  36. Pod153: Pod153 to 2E. Recommendation: Destruct 9S’ current data and reload the default data.
  37. 2B: This…is…enough….this….
  38. Pod 153: Yorha model 2 type E. 9S’s invasion to Bunker’s intelligence is predicted behavior. Model 2 type E is an executioner model. This action is part of the mission, it is also part of predicted behaviors to Model 2 Type E. Question: Not related to predicted behaviors, I cannot fathom the current state of model 2 type E.
  39. 2B: Shut up!
  40. Pod 153: Also, YoRHa forbids emotions. Recommendation: Stop exhibiting emotions, destroy current 9S data, and perform default data….
  41. 2B (rage): Shut up!
  42. 2B (breathing hard, slowly): 9….S….
  43.  
  44. Act 2 April 6th
  45. On screen: April 6th
  46. 9S and 2B’s individual monologue
  47. 9S (happily, regular tone): My name is 9S…YoRHa unit, model 9, type E. We are scanners. We use our ability for reconnaissance or investigating enemy machine life form’s mechanism. Occasionally, we hack enemies. But we are not very good at combat. We basically operate in the dark, alone. Even for models like us, we are contributing to YoRHa unit….At least that is my hope.
  48. 2B (calmly): My name is 2B, YoRHa unit model 2 type B. B is a unit specialized in battle, and we are programmed for gruesome frontline battles over and over again. We are programmed to feel nothing about killing and dying. Yes, I feel nothing about losing my life. But…after meeting you, 9S…..I….
  49. 9S: Ever since I was paired with 2B I’ve ran into more combat scenarios. She always rushes into dangerous situations. I got scared and got cold sweats all over from watching her. Since I am a scanner model, I can only equip one weapon. This is not easy.
  50. 9S (a bit happier): But I’m happy to be able to work with 2B. Why? Because I’m not alone anymore, or, I feel like I have family.
  51. 2B: 9S’ ability to investigate is exceptional, and this was known during the designing phase. But due to its exceptional investigative abilities, things like accessing classified ‘YoRHa Project’ files are predicted to happen.
  52. 2B: My real name is 2E…Model 2, type E. When 9S access Bunker illegally, I would execute him immediately. This is my mission, a repetitive, ceaseless, never-ending mission.
  53. 9S (calmly): I do not deny that I have special feelings for 2B. This is not allowed by YoRHa.
  54. 2B (somewhat painfully): How many times, how many times do I have to kill 9S again and again. Every time I would feel a gigantic void inside my body. Can I have hope?
  55. 9S: The day
  56. 2B: The day
  57. 9S, 2B: my sins were forgiven.
  58. SE: The sound of a heart flatlining bi------ (9S is dead again. Count 2).
  59. Pod 153: Comfirmation: 9S’ current data are all gone. Erasing all memory and reloading all default data…
  60.  
  61. Act 3 January 18th
  62.  
  63. 9S (investigating): That…that looks like a commercial facility.
  64. 2B: Yep.
  65. 9S: Human used to buy a lot of stuff. And it’s not about purchasing, it seems that they were happy just looking at them. According to record, this behavior is called “shopping”. Human really do weird things. Shall we try it sometime? “shopping”?
  66. 2B: We are soldiers created for war. We don’t do meaningless things like shopping in the ruins.
  67. 9S: After the war, we androids don’t have to fight anymore. It must be fun, shopping.
  68. 2B: After the war. I’ll think about it.
  69. 9S (VO): As 2B said that, she turned her back to me. A bit shy. A bit of sadness, like it’s impossible.
  70. 9S (VO): We spent the day fishing in the Flooded City. We doing a reconnaissance of marine resources, but we did not catch the targeted fish. We did not talk much. Both of us were looking at the calm sea as we fished. The salty and humid sea breeze, waves glistering under the sun. We did not obtain any meaningful intelligence, but I still remember this.
  71. 9S (VO): Among all that happened in the City Ruins, this gave me the deepest impression: When we first arrived, we got in trouble with some boars. And we were chased by the boar for a whole day. Then we discussed if boars would be a higher priority than machine lifeform for investigation on top of a collapsed building covered by greens.
  72. 9S (VO): There are more animals and plants compared the old world. The smell of wind, the sound of rain, they remain unchanged. Those useless but precious memories.
  73. 9S (VO): We visited many places. Of course, it was not for fun. Those were our missions. At places that are hard to get to, we fought veraciously with gigantic machine lifeforms. But compared to the memories of fighting, the regular days I spent with 2B left larger impression on my memory.
  74. 9S (VO, a little lonely): Soon those memories will disappear, with the rest of my data. I’m really happy that I get to be with you. Farewell, 2B.
  75. SE: The sound of heart flat lining bi------ (9S is dead again. Count 3).
  76.  
  77. On Screen: January, 18th
  78. Pod 153: Confirmation: 9S’ current data has completely disappeared. Erasing all memory and reloading default data.
  79. 2B: is it…
  80.  
  81. In Isolation
  82. Pod 153: Because YoRHa 9S repeatedly accesses classified files, he was executed repeatedly. But we cannot confirm his resistance during this execution, and according to data in 9S’ memory, he knew about YoRHa model 2B being an execution model in disguise.
  83. Pod 145: Question: 9S does not have any reason to resist execution.
  84. 2B: 9S knows about….me being an execution model?
  85. 2B (laughs sadly): haha, hahahaha…
  86. 2B: Pod 153, you can’t understand 9S.
  87. Pod 153: Negative. This machine is a support unit for YoRHa Unit 9S. I maintain the usual combat actions of this model. I also monitor for illegal access to the Bunker, and notify YoRHa Type E of her mission. This machine controls all intelligence on YoRHa unit 9S. Therefore it’s not appropriate to say this machine cannot understand YoRHa unit 9S.
  88. 2B: You do not understand 9S at all…
  89. 2B (lonely): I also…
  90.  
  91. Act 4 February 4th
  92.  
  93. 2B (painfully, with tears): No, this is enough. This…
  94. Pod 153: Recommendation: Proceed with 2B’s mission.
  95. SE: The sound of heart flat lining bi------ (9S is dead again. Count 4).
  96. 2B: I don’t want to kill anymore…
  97. Pod 153: Negative. YoRHa Unit 2B’s mission is ongoing. The request to terminate current mission to Command was denied 64 hours ago.
  98. SE: The sound of heart flat lining bi------ (9S was dead before he could speak. Count 5).
  99.  
  100. 2B: why…do I have to….
  101. Pod 153: Report: YoRHa unit 2B was modeled on the last surviving unit of YoRHa Experimental Unit. She has high survivability under harsh environments and high combat capability. So she was chosen as the perfect candidate for this mission.
  102. 2B: I am not well suited for this kind of mission at all.
  103. Pod 153: Negative
  104. 2B: Save me, save me.
  105. Pod 153 (keeps on repeating as if it were broken, background SE is the sound of flatlining): Negative…Report…Recommendation…Damaged…Command….Punishment…Humanity…Moon…Falsehood…Machine….Youth….Guilt…
  106. 2B (screams over Pod): Nines!
  107.  
  108. A moment later:
  109.  
  110. 9S (VO): We YoRHa exist to be killed. The endless circle of losing our lives, and the endless circle of rebirth. Like samsara.
  111. 9S (VO, a bit annoyed): But why do I feel this weight on my chest? Why is it that every time I lost my life, I felt a void in an important part of my heart and I felt annoyed? Ah, 2B, the fact that I can’t see you again, the fact that the current me will disappear. Why do I feel this, this loneliness?
  112.  
  113. A moment later
  114.  
  115. 2B (VO): We YoRHa exist to be killed. For reviving mankind, for taking back Earth, we are willing to give up lives. That includes, killing our compatriots.
  116.  
  117. 2B (VO, a bit annoyed): But, killing 9S repeatedly and endlessly, it’s building up inside me like dirty blood. I can’t wipe it clean no matter how hard I try. It attacks me with 9S’ words.
  118. 2B (Wants to cry out because of her self reprimand, but repressing it): ……Ah…9S, our choice, was it wrong?
  119.  
  120. On Screen: February, 4th
  121.  
  122. SE: Errors bi –
  123. 9S (painfully before dying): oh ahhhhhhhhhh!
  124. 2B: 9S….nines!
  125. 9S (painfully, out of breath): ha, hahahah. Finally, you called me nines.
  126. 2B: Why! Why do you use self-demolition program? That way, your data will…!
  127. Pod 153 (VO): Because physical virus is causing 9S’ body to degrade. Hair, fingertips, wrists, degradation is causing immense pain.
  128. 9S: Alright, 2B…You killing me is, your mission, isn’t it? I know…you are agonizing over that you have to kill me…
  129. Pod 153 (VO): The hand trying to touch 2B’s face does not exist anymore.
  130. 9S: For 2B, a body like this, I don’t mind losing it.
  131. Pod 153 (VO): body degrading, struggling with hope.
  132. 2B: Nines, how do we come to this….
  133. 9S: (with pain, but awe-inspiring to 2B): 2B…I, no, YoRHa Unit Model 9 Type S feel much honored to be able to fight alongside you. I wish all the glory to you in your future combat.
  134. 2B (in tears): nine….s
  135. 9S: 2B, one final request, if we ever meet again, please make sure to kill me. That’s a promise, ok?
  136. 2B (sadly)
  137. 9S: hahaha, 2B you are so gentle…then
  138. Pod 153 (VO): The sound does not form words anymore.
  139. 9S: The streets we traveled together, the amusement park, the sea. I will not forget.
  140. Pod 153 (VO): Even though the light is gone from the eyes.
  141. 9S: Thank you, for being with me… 2B.
  142. SE: The sound of heart flat lining bi------ (9S is dead after all. Count 6).
  143. 9S stops breathing.
  144. 2B (groaning painfully): I….I….nines…sorry…sorry
  145.  
  146. All raise their heads (All VO from this point forward)
  147.  
  148. Pod 153: Everything that lives is designed to end. We are perpetually trapped, in a never-ending spiral of life and death.
  149. 2B: Let the pain of killing 9S, be the sin of the living.
  150. 9S: Let the joy of meeting 2B, be the meaning of life.
  151. 2B: Even so, I keep on resisting.
  152. 9S: Just so, I keep on fighting.
  153. 2B, 9S: That is…
  154. 2B, 9S: the chance to kill god.
  155.  
  156.  
  157. After the show, CV’s thought:
  158. Akiyama (pod 153): I’ll be short. (in pod’s voice) Recommend: Go back and click “like” on social networks.
  159. Hanae (9S): this is the same from the booklet. I want some more gentle plots, so I asked Yoko-san (for it). But when I got the script, it’s worse.
  160. Ishikiwa (2B): yeah. Keeps dying. How many times did you die?
  161. Hanae (9S): 6 times.
  162. Okabe: You asked Yoko to be gentle?
