This is almost definitely Taro's most densely packed story yet. It's so much to process.
And to reinforce the significance of how intimately 2B strangling 9S is shot, it's important to remember the "love scene" between Nier and Kaine. Kaine basically slapped the shit out of an emotionally devastated and traumatized man and threw him around the room.
The undertones of the 2B/6O relationship were also noticeable however. Also Sting has a song called Desert Rose
. I don't know how deep Taro is into sappy British music, but those are certainly some lyrics.
