Synopsis of 86: Eighty-Six
The Republic of San Magnolia. During a long time, this country has been besieged by its neighbor, the Giadian Empire, which created a series of unmanned drones called Legion. After years of meticulous research, the Republic finally developed its own autonomous drones, converting the unilateral struggle into a war without victims, or at least, that is what the Government affirms. In truth, there is no undergarly 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 abandoned land are marked as "the Eighty-Six" and, stripped of their humanity, lead the "unmanned" weapons to the battle ... Shinn directs the actions of a young Eighty-Six detachment in the battlefield. Lena is a "manipulator" that commands the detachment from the remote rear with the help of a special communication. Start the farewell story of the severe and sad fight of these two!
