86: Eighty Six Anime synopsis
The Eighty Six anime is an adaptation of a light-novel, which is also called 86. 86’s authors are Asato Asato (Story) and Shirabi (Art).
Called “Juggernaut”, they are the combat drones developed by the Republic of San Magnolia in response to attacks by autonomous drones from the neighboring Empire of Giad, the “Legion”. They are supposed to be driven by remote control. In reality, they are piloted by the Eighty-Six, those who are seen as less than human and treated as mere tools.
Shinei, the captain of the Spearhead Squadron, which is made up of Eighty-six, continues to wage a hopeless war on a battlefield where only death awaits him. As his fight rages on, Vladilena Milizé, an elite Republic trooper, arrives and becomes his new mastermind.
Hating the way the Republic uses the Eighty-Six as cannon fodder and despises them for being “pigs in human skin,” she decides to treat them like human beings.
A young man and eighty-sixth who constantly faces death on the front lines, and a promising young woman of the military elite. Ordinarily, they would never have crossed paths, but now that a fierce war is raging around them, they are looking to the future…
