86 EIGHTY-SIX TV Anime's Final 2 Episodes Postponed Until March 2022

Episode 21 will continue to air this Sunday



The production committee for the 86 EIGHTY-SIX TV anime announced tonight that the final two episodes of the series, episodes 22 and 23, will be delayed until March 2022. In a statement on the official website for the series, the production committee stated that they "have decided to take some extra time to complete the episodes so that the viewers who have been looking forward to enjoying the climax of the second cour of this work can do so with the best quality we can produce."





The 21st episode of 86 EIGHTY-SIX is still set to air this Sunday in Japan, with the 22nd episode following on March 12, 2022, at 24:00 on Tokyo MX, and the 23rd episode, the final, scheduled for March 19 at the same time as the previous episode. The statement noted that this timing can only be confirmed for the Tokyo MX broadcast, with other stations and streaming services to be confirmed at a later time.


The staff apologized to fans for the delay and stated that "the entire staff will do their best to create a work that will meet the expectations of our fans."


The second part of 86 EIGHTY-SIX began on TOKYO MX in Japan on October 2 at 24:00 (effectively, 12:00 AM on October 3), with Crunchyroll streaming the series as it airs. Episodes 18, 19, and 20 were also delayed in the Fall 2021 broadcast season, airing every two weeks instead of weekly. 


The first season is also streaming on Crunchyroll both subbed and dubbed, which describes the TV anime as such:


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.
