Adaptation of mecha science fiction series by Asato Asato continues this fall on Crunchyroll
The second cour of 86 EIGHTY SIX, the TV anime adaptation based on the science fiction mecha light novel series written by Asato Asato and illustrated by Shirabii about soldiers trapped within a hopeless war, is currently in full-swing, and Aniplex has published the new opening animation for the series on Youtube.
The OP animation video (below) features the song "Kyokai-sen" ("Borderline"), which is performed by amazarashi.
Crunchyroll describes the story of 86 EIGHTY SIX as follows:
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.
The 86 EIGHTY-SIX TV anime is directed by Toshimasa Ishii and features animation production by A-1 Pictures. The second cour of the series is currently broadcasting in Japan on TOKYO MX, BS11, and other stations, and it is also available via streaming on Crunchyroll.
