Based on the light novel series of the same name written by Asato Asato and illustrated by Shirabii, ’86′ or ‘Eighty-Six’ is a science fiction mecha TV anime. The show centers upon the years-long military confrontation and war between the Republic of San Magnolia and the Empire of Giad. While the government of the former claims that the war is bloodless and is merely a showdown between drones of two technologically advanced political powers, the truth is much bitter. The Republic is a racist nation that discriminates against its Colarata minority and uses them as pilots of their so-called autonomous drones.
When Vladilena Milizé, an Alba majority, becomes the handler of the Spearhead squadron, her life takes an unexpected turn. The first season of the science fiction military anime premiered from April 11, 2021, to June 20, 2021. Here’s everything you need to know about its upcoming episode.

In episode 3, Shin and his friends, who had decided to fulfill Ernst’s wishes and enrolled in the Special Officer’s Training School, not only keep their word, but thanks to their military experience, they easily manage to clear the exam. Then they start working under Lt. Colonel Grethe Wenzel in the Nordlicht Squadron. They later visit a region recently captured by the Federacy, where they find their destroyed Juggernauts.
Grethe informs them that a memorial honoring the memory of everyone Shin can remember been erected there. Furthermore, Fido’s wreckage is also not only recovered but with its core intact, the entire body is constructed again. Shin then pilots the Reginleif mechs to help the Federacy forces and also reunites with Eugene. He had become friends with him before signing up, but the protagonist was not ready for the shock that would soon follow.
During a Legion attack, Eugene, unfortunately, gets seriously injured, and the responsibility to end his misery ultimately falls on Shin. While he has barely recovered from the shock, he learns that another Legion attack is likely to happen soon. In episode 4, Shin may have to come to terms with the death of people he considers very close to him. The next legion attack will be just as devastating as the previous one.
