    I understand that Eishima is the writer and that Yoko Taro directed/wrote NieR:A the game. So if Yoko Taro is the supervisor of the novel, does that still make him the author?

    • No. Since an author is a person who writes a book, he is not the author. Eishima Jun is. The concept and content flow are still his ideas, which makes him the supervisor.
