86 eighty-six

If you’ve been enjoying the anime adaptation of 86 EIGHTY-SIX—based on the science fiction light novel series written by Asato Asato and illustrated by Shirabii—you’ll be happy to hear that the continuation has a date. The second cours of the anime will officially debut on TV in Japan starting this October, with broadcast plans scheduled for TOKYO MX and other stations.

There’s no exact date yet, but a new teaser is here to get everyone ready for more.

Crunchyroll streamed the first part of the A-1 Pictures production of 86 EIGHTY-SIX as it aired and describes it:

Called “Juggernaut,” these are the unmanned combat drones developed by the Republic of San Magnolia in answer to the attacks by the autonomous unmanned drones of the neighboring Empire of Giad, the “Legion”. But they’re only unmanned in name. In reality, they are piloted by the Eighty-sixers—those considered to be less than human and treated as mere tools. Determined to achieve his own mysterious ends, Shin, the captain of Spearhead Squadron, which is comprised of Eighty-sixers, continues to fight a hopeless war on a battlefield where only death awaits him.
