According to the Republic of San Magnolia, their ongoing war against the Giadian Empire has no casualties—however, that is mere propaganda. While the silver-haired Alba of the Republic's eighty-five sectors live safely behind protective walls, those of different appearances are interned in a secret eighty-sixth faction. Known within the military as the Eighty-Six, they are forced to fight against the Empire's autonomous Legion under the command of the Republican "Handlers."

Vladilena Milizé is assigned to the Spearhead squadron to replace their previous Handler. Shunned by her peers for being a fellow Eighty-Six supporter, she continues to fight against their inhumane discrimination. Shinei Nouzen is the captain of the Spearhead squadron. Infamous for being the sole survivor of every squadron he's been in, he insists on shouldering the names and wishes of his fallen comrades. When the fates of these young souls from two different worlds collide, will it ignite the spark that lights their path to salvation, or will they burn themselves in the flames of despair?

The word masterpiece gets thrown around so much these days, it’s nearly lost its meaning. The literal meaning being the defining work of an individual’s career. I’m here to tell you now, Eighty-Six:86 is a masterpiece in the truest sense of the word and is one of the best stories in the modern history of the medium. 86 depicts the brutal nature of war, racism and oppression in such a way that you can’t help but to be absorbed into the story, characters and fall in love with the series.

From the time it was announced that my favourite LN series would be getting an anime ...

Mixed Feelings
A1 Pictures has returned, and has returned with an ambitious investment: adapting a Light Novel very renowned by its readers, 86. In the beginning, it was imaginable to see a very good arsenal in the staff and in the show's advertising. No wonder that the name of the show itself caused interest by many. However, we need to keep our feet on the ground. This ambition makes 86 leave an anime that still needs to really show its objective to a level that suffocates and embodies a quality... that doesn't exist yet.

Looking at the construction of the episodes, the show brings an innovation in its ...

Every season, one can find countless anime adaptations of light novels or manga applauded by its dedicated fanbase as being deep, provoking, emotional, amazing, etc. Some live up to or even surpass that hype. Others are an honest adaptation, but an adaptation is all they are. Then, there are those that, quite frankly, are just straight up overrated.

And 86 is in my eyes overrated.

Before I have Milizé simps knocking at my door calling for my head, I just want to make it clear: overrated doesn’t equate to being bad. I don’t think 86 is a bad anime; it’s okay and pretty watchable. But is ...
