An original novel set in the universe of the award-winning, international hit video game NieR:Automata.
Based on the stage drama "Project YoRHa," YoRHA Boys recounts events that occurred before the beginning of the post-apocalyptic action role-playing game NieR:Automata. Written by bestselling novelist Jun Eishima, supervised by NieR:Automata Director Yoko Taro, and featuring artwork by acclaimed Final Fantasy illustrator Toshiyuki Itahana, this is the previously untold tale of the formation of YoRHa Experimental M Squadron--the beginning of both "curse" and "punishment," of androids dreaming of the glory of mankind.
