It began publication by ASCII Media Works under their Dengeki Bunko imprint in February 2017. The series is licensed in North America by Yen Press.

A manga adaptation illustrated by Motoki Yoshihara was serialized in Square Enix's seinen manga magazine Young Gangan from 2018 to 2022, with two spin-off manga series—86: Operation High School by Suzume Somemiya and 86: Fragmental Neoteny—being serialized in Media Factory's seinen manga magazine Monthly Comic Alive in June 2020 and April 2021, respectively. An anime television series adaptation by A-1 Pictures aired from April 2021 to March 2022.

Plot[edit]

The Republic of San Magnolia has been at war with the Empire of Giad for nine years. Though it initially suffered devastating losses to the Empire's autonomous mechanized Legions, the Republic has since developed its own autonomous units, called Juggernauts, which are directed remotely by a Handler. While on the surface, the public believes the war is being fought between machines, in reality, the Juggernauts are being piloted by humans, all of whom are "86"—the designation given to the Colorata minority of San Magnolia. The 86 originally had equal rights, but were persecuted and scapegoated by the dominant Alba race and the Alba-supremacist Republic government to the point where Colorata were both officially designated and popularly considered subhuman. The 86 were not permitted to have personal names and were immured in internment camps in the 86th District (their namesake); all the while being forced to fight in the Republic's war with the Empire to receive better treatment.

Major Vladilena "Lena" Milizé, an Alba noble and military officer in the San Magnolian military, is an outspoken activist against the grave mistreatment of the nation's Colorata minority, and the willful deception of the general public by the Republic government. She is assigned as the Handler of the Spearhead Squadron of the Eastern Front: an elite unit composed entirely of 86 veterans who have earned names. Led by their squad leader, Shinei "The Undertaker" Nouzen, the Spearhead Squadron is infamous among military officials. Its notoriety stems from the state in which its commanding officers are left: Handlers presiding over the squad have descended into insanity and some have gone as far as committing suicide. Lena, an avowed 86 sympathizer, gets to know the Spearhead Squadron in her time as head of the contingent. At the same time, Lena and Shinei learn a dark secret: the Republic and the war with the Empire are not what they seem.

Production[edit]

One of the inspirations for the series was drone warfare, and the novel explores the logistics and ethics around this form of combat.[18] Another major inspiration was the 2007 film The Mist. As she came up with the fictional ideas of the story, Asato started working on the light novel. Asato had been working on the novel since 2014 and it was only in 2017 that it was published. The setting of the story took a while for the author to come up with. She wanted the story to take place within a fortressed city. However, she switched the idea and finalized the current setting for the series. She usually spend about 6–8 hours a day writing.[19]

Media[edit]

The CGI will be developed by Shirogumi. The series was originally scheduled to air in 2020, but it was indefinitely delayed.[3] The series is a split-cour anime, with the first half airing on Tokyo MX and other stations from April 11 to June 20, 2021.[64][65][a] On March 28, 2021, Tokyo MX broadcast a special program commemorating the start of the series starring main cast members Shōya Chiba and Ikumi Hasegawa, producer Nobuhiro Nakayama and music composer Hiroyuki Sawano.[66] The second half aired from October 3, 2021 to March 19, 2022.[67] Crunchyroll licensed the series outside of Asia for an English simulcast and simuldub.[68][4] Muse Communication licensed the series in Southeast Asia and is streaming it on iQIYI, Bilibili and Netflix.[69] The first opening theme is "3-pun 29-byō" (3分29秒, San-pun Nijūkyū-byō; "3 Minutes 29 Seconds") by Hitorie, while the first ending theme is "Avid" by SawanoHiroyuki[nZk]:mizuki and the second theme is "Hands Up to the Sky" by SawanoHiroyuki[nZk]:Laco.[7][70] The second opening theme is "Kyōkaisen" (境界線; "Boundary Line") by Amazarashi, while the third ending theme is "Alchemilla" (アルケミラ, Arukemira) by Regal Lily and the fourth ending theme is "LilaS" by SawanoHiroyuki[nZk]:Takahashi Honoka.[15][71]

Reception[edit]

The light novel won the Grand Prize at the 23rd Dengeki Novel Prize award in 2016.[3] The light novel also ranked second in 2018 in Takarajimasha's annual light novel guide book Kono Light Novel ga Sugoi!, in the bunkobon category.[72] It ranked fifth in 2019.[73]

Joe Ballard of Comic Book Resources noted the light novel's critical acclaim and called it "a movingly honest portrayal of war, drama, the supernatural, and the shockingly discriminatory views of a nation's general public, 86-Eighty-Six is anything but your standard light novel series."[74] UK Anime News praised the first volume of the light novel, calling it thought-provoking, emotional and incredibly difficult to put down."[75] The Fandom Post found the first volume "not particularly groundbreaking", but was impressed by the subversion of the "bloodless war" theme and found the development of the plot and characters "quite solid."[76]

IGN listed the show as one of the best anime of 2021.[77] Multiple writers from Anime News Network listed the anime's first season as one of their favorite series from spring 2021,[78] with Steve Jones also naming the second season as his most anticipated for fall 2021.[79]

The Fandom Post gave the show an A−, noting that although the first episode felt stiff and full of "technobabble", the show found its footing by episode two.[80] At the close of season one, the site praised the show's stellar production value, solid animation and music, and beautiful conveyance of its themes.[81] Callum May's review for Anime News Network also noted the series' improvement by episode two, describing the first few episodes as "surprisingly gripping",[82] and offered specific praise to the show's directing, storyboarding, and animation.[83]

The anime received four nominations at the 6th Crunchyroll Anime Awards in the categories: Anime of the Year, Best Drama, Best Girl, and Best Score.[84]
