The disappearance of the Spearhead Squadron beyond the horizon does little to hide the intensity of the Republic of San Magnolia's endless propaganda. Vladilena Milizé continues to operate as "Handler One," the commander of yet another dehumanized 86th faction's squadron in the continuous war against the Legion.

On the Western Front, Shinei Nouzen and his squad are quarantined in a military base controlled by the Federal Republic of Giad, formerly known as the Giadian Empire. The newly-established government grants the saved Eighty-Six full citizenship and freedom. Housed by the president Ernst Zimmerman himself, the group meets his adoptive daughter and the last Empress, Augusta Frederica Adel-Adler.

However, within the calm of this tender society, Shinei and his team feel that their purpose is on the battlefield. Before long, they are once again in the midst of the Legion's onslaught as a part of the Federacy's Nordlicht Squadron, accompanied by Augusta Frederica. But, as history repeats itself, they realize that no matter the side, death and pain on the front lines are the only comfort they know.

Poetry in motion.

After watching the first cour of this entire series, 86 Part 2 exceeds far past the expectations set in the first cour's ending. It was far more polished in terms of writing, cinematography, symbolism, and sequencing. Every single shot, cut, camera angle was created with intent to tell the story and evoke great sense of emotions which can be described as to near perfection levels of direction. Now, there are three, maybe four reasons why this anime can be considered one of the best war-themed anime.

First, the writing is impactful in wonders unexplainable. While some lines are cheesy and a little over-the-top, the ...

Mixed Feelings
Meh... You know, I feel the same feeling, like always. Again we had a good first season and something worse/not that good in second. Let's be honest, there were a really good potential in first season, another way to show descrimination and all other nearby to it. And i thought, that in second we'll see more and better, 'cauze rationg were much higher, but what we've seen so? No progress at all? Just a 12 episodes of average mech anime about war? It feels like i just watched a basic faceless title. Too much cliche, standart shonen characters and more. We lost somehow mystic atmosphere ...

Is it worth watching an entire season just for the last 2 episodes to be good?
Consider Part 1 the ending. Go do something else.

As well as the last scene is, and as anticipated as the reveal was, I do not consider it worth watching the whole show just for it. Maybe somebody could make an abridged version that leaves out the boss fight arc, and that'll make it better to watch and less dragged out. We don't learn much more about the characters, and they stop becoming interesting as soon as the focus is turned away from the survival aspect.
