Synopsis for 86: Eighty-Six

The Republic of Saint Magnolia.

This country has long been under siege by its neighbor, the Giadian Empire, which created a series of unmanned drones called the Legion. After years of painstaking research, the Republic finally developed its own autonomous drones, turning the one-sided fight into a casualtyless war – or at least, that’s what the government claims.

In truth, there is no bloodless war. Beyond the walls that protect the eighty-five territories of the Republic is the “nonexistent” “Eighty-Six Sector”. The young men and women of this forsaken land are branded as “The Eighty-Six” and, stripped of their humanity, lead the “unmanned” weapons into battle …

Shinn directs the actions of a detachment of Eighty-Six youths on the battlefield. Lena is a “manipulator” who commands the detachment from the remote rear with the help of special communication. The farewell story of the severe and sad fight of these two begins!
