'86' Anime Delays Episode 18 by 1 Week Due to 'Production Issues'

Nov 08, 2021 05:36 AM

The official website for the television anime of Asato Asato's 86 light novel series announced on Sunday that the anime's 18th episode will not air next Sunday due to "production issues." A "visual commentary" episode will air in its place. The 18th episode will instead air on November 20.

The anime will also not have a regular episode on December 11, and will instead air a special compilation episode.

The anime's second cours premiered on October 2.

amazarashi performs the second opening theme song "Kyōkaisen" (Boundary Line), and Regal Lily performs the second ending theme song "Alchemila."

The new cast includes:

  • Misaki Kuno as Frederica Rosenfort
  • Yuya Uchida as Ernst Zimmerman
  • Asuna Tomari as Shiden Iida

Yen Press is publishing the light novel series in English, and it describes the story:

The San Magnolia Republic has long been under attack by unmanned weapons from the neighboring Empire. Against this onslaught, the Republic has also deployed similar weapons, narrowly avoiding great loss of life and impending disaster-or at least that's how it seemed.

The truth is that it has never been possible to have no casualties. Young men and women drawn from the Republic's supposedly non-existent 86th district are organized into the "86 unit" and then ordered to pilot the "unmanned weapons" before heading to battle.

The television anime premiered on April 10, and is airing for two cours (quarters of the year). Crunchyroll is streaming the series as it airs in Japan, and it is also streaming an English dub.
