The overall settings and plot of the series really remind me Code Geass OVA: Akito the Exiled: * discriminated soldiers from another nation/race * spider like mecha/drones * kindly female commander * indoctrinated "republic" * nicknames of both units are related to Ghost/Death

Similar premise, themes, characters (Vladilena/Shin and Leila/Akito), spider mechas, CGI action scenes and dialogues. 86 is so similar to Code Geass Akito that it feels like a blatant copy or a parody.

Both main characters are very similar: Leila and Lena are commanders who cares about their armies, Akito and Shin are silent and telented militaries. Also, both are war themed with some racial questions.

Everything about these two series is the same: naive young girl from a high social class gets put in charge of commanding a military squad with multiple insubordinate soldiers, an edgy main character with barely a hint of a personality who is known for being ruthless and has a nickname related to death, the military force is made of people from a different country because they are seen as subhuman, and there's extensive use of ugly CGI spider mechas.

So many similarities, you can just watch and see what I mean, the main thing separating these shows is that 86 is objectively superior, in story telling, pacing, and character. Akito the Exiled is a lot more boring and uninteresting than 86 is, while having similar themes, 86 holds itself to the theming more than Akito does. Akito was a lot more boring.
