No spoilers!

During story progression, Popola will ask you to revisit the Aerie. This culminates in a boss battle. If the boss is defeated in less than eight and a half minutes, the achievement will unlock.

The battle is time consuming because the boss will move to three different locations and Nier will have to deliver long range Dark Lance attacks moving to a spot where he is in range of the distant boss. After sustaining a certain amount of damage, the boss moves from the first spot to the second. Nier follows to a vantage point where he can reengage. Again, once sustaining a certain amount of damage, the boss moves from the second spot to the third and final spot where the coup de grace can be administered. If the battle is concluded in less than eight and a half minutes, the achievement will unlock.

As with similar timed fights, make sure you skip the cut scenes. Accordingly, you might want to fight the boss twice--once viewing the cut scenes and the second skipping them reverting to a save that you made just before the fight. Also, this fight recurs for each walkthrough--working towards the A, B, C, and D endings. Nier will be progressively stronger during each walkthrough until he reaches max strength. So, depending on how fast you have been leveling up--a personal choice--you may want to defer getting this achievement for a later playthrough when Nier is at a level where he can more quickly defeat this boss. On the other hand, if you have leveled up Nier rapidly, the achievement can readily be obtained in a first playthrough.
