A Brief Introduction on 86 Eighty Six Anime Episode 1
In the 86 Eighty Six anime, the first protagonist to be introduced in the episode was Lena Mirizé, the daughter from a certain noble family in the republic of San Magnolia. First of all, Lena was the youngest person to become a major at the of age 16. Also, among all the majors out there, it seems that Lena is the only one who treats her subordinates fairly.
Their subordinates are the ones called “86”. Many of the soldiers are calling them pigs, on the news, they are called drones. On the other hand, it seems that Lena values their lives just as how she values her own. Why is Lena the only one who values them fairly? What is 86’s real nature and do they deserve that treatment?
Lena was in charge of handling the defense line unit 3 of 86. However, while in their headquarters, Lena is told by her commanding officer that she will be in charge of unit 1, the elite unit of 86. The leader of the aforementioned unit is called Undertaker. It is also said that every handler who takes responsibility of the said unit eventually retires or wants to change their commanding unit. What’s more, some of them even committed suicide. For that reason, Undertaker was also called “The Reaper”. It looks like Lena will have her hands full with her new unit.
What is the mystery behind Undertaker? Can Lena survive the weight of handling the elite unit? What will happen to Lena as she forms a new relationship with a different unit of 86? It seems that watching the start of 86 Eighty Six anime and its future episodes will answer the questions. It is sure that you will enjoy watching the anime because of the plot and animation.

A War Without Casualties. The Republic of San Magnolia has long been under attack from the neighboring Giadian Empire’s army of unmanned drones known as the Legion. After years of painstaking research, the Republic finally developed autonomous drones of their own, turning the one-sided struggle into a war without casualties-or at least, that’s what the government claims.
In truth, there is no such thing as a bloodless war. Beyond the fortified walls protecting the eighty-five Republic territories lies the “nonexistent” Eighty-Sixth Sector. The young men and women of this forsaken land are branded the Eighty-Six and, stripped of their humanity, pilot the “unmanned” weapons into battle…
