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.

WARNING: Might contain some spoilers!

I’ve been on MAL for a few years and the only function I used to track my anime progression, until 86 came around. Because of this anime I visited the forums and started talking about this anime with the users. I didn’t write a review regarding part 1, but I’ve decided to sit down and tell you my thoughts regarding the second cour of 86.

While part 1 only covered the first volume of the LN, the second part covers the 2nd and 3rd volumes, which leads to vastly faster pace than we experienced in the first cour.

86 is a series that wears its themes on its sleeve and like many other modern stories surrounding oppression and class disparity, the writing can come off amateurish and lacking in subtlety. Lack of subtlety is an issue you simply must accept when reading many light novels (and Y/A in general) and 86 is no different in this regard. But the anime adaptation is truly something else.

As a reader of Asato's work I can't help but gush over how amazing this adaptation really is. While the novels suffer from slow pacing and excessive exposition, the anime condenses everything important into tight, 20 minute directorial read more

(Note: - It would probably make sense to watch the 86 season 1 summary before watching the second season)

86 is back pretty soon for its second cour and the first few episodes did not disappoint. The OP is a complete banger and the art is amazing. Hopefully the show will continue to be great.

The 5 remaining members of the spearhead squadron have made it to the kingdom of Giad and are living a very different life there. This life has a sharp contrast to their life back in the republic, and they discover a whole new side to themselves, which I quite like. Episode 2 read more

"War is when the young and stupid are tricked by the old and bitter into killing each other."

The statement "Anime is dead" has become a new trend among pseudo-elitists aka fake Anime fans who don't watch more than 5 shows every Season. What we often tend to ignore is that instead Mecha genre is on the verge of extinction. One of the oldest and revolutionary sub-genre that has sustained the Industry for decades with legendary franchises like Gundam to highly acclaimed ones like Evangelion.
While recent shows like Darling in the Franxx failed to got any positive reception. A1 Pictures burdened with the stigma of read more
