Systematic oppression, the cruelty of war, to the many people who ignore the problems in the world of war.
Synopsis Anime 86
Anime 86 (just replace with engagers, so it’s delicious!), Anime Eighty-Six itself is included in the military Mecha genre where the main story is a war between 2 regions, namely the Republic and the Legion. In that war, the Republican position is more advantageous and in the anime, they will win within 2 years.
Of course, the war in anime, especially in the Mecha genre, will not be complete without heavy equipment as the weapon used, but it is a little different from other mecha anime which takes the form of giant robots like Gundam or at least looks dashing and fierce like in Heavy Object. Unfortunately in the Eighty-Six anime, all of this is invisible because the mecha used takes the form of an insect.
Juggernaut Is the name of the weapon in the anime, equipped with a cannon on its back. The Juggernaut weapon is considered an unmanned weapon by the Republican soldiers and is controlled by the so-called Processor, then the soldiers from the republic who call themselves handlers manage all existing Processors.

The story of this anime is set in the Republic of San Magnolia which is inhabited exclusively by people who are white and have silver eyes. They had been at war with the Legion of robots threatening their territory for a long time. Fortunately, the country has been protected by autonomous robots so that it does not sacrifice human lives. At least, that’s what people believe.
The reality behind the scenes is that the obsolete robot is controlled by 86, namely people who come from colonized countries and do not fit the essence of the Republic. Therefore, legally it is not counted as “human”. General San Magnolian was directing 86 through long-distance communication from behind the security of the national wall even though they knew what was going on.
Young and idealistic Major Vladilena Milize (often referred to as Lena) discovers the plight of the 86 members when she is chosen to lead the elite Spearhead Squadron. He gets challenged from all sides while trying to make things better than them. His superiors and friends warned that sticking his neck out was not worth the security of the soldier.
Concepts like this are very different from mainstream shounen, where friendship can solve problems. Sometimes good intentions alone are not enough to dismantle centuries of oppression. Real change requires immediate action from many people over a long period. Nor does it completely remove the pain of the past.
Review Anime 86
Actually, for the first time Rizu wanted to watch this, he was a little hesitant and thought about making batches, but after trying one episode, it turned out to be quite interesting. Even though the premise that is raised is rather general, like the anime ALDNOAH ZERO or Gundam, namely 2 warring countries fighting for power. Even the main character who has the nickname Undertaker is also similar to Kaizuka Inaho, which is less sensitive, but on the other hand, he is very smart in battle.
The thing that makes the Eighty-Six anime interesting is the story behind the number 86, where it is the name of the district where the exiles who are considered not human are, moreover, it turns out that these people control the Juggernaut which is considered unmanned by the Republicans.
So behind all that, there is a very clear doctrine and caste difference that underlies it, then there is the main female character who knows all that and wants to tell everyone. Of course, it can not beat the doctrine that has been practiced for years.
Rizu himself, who was initially uncomfortable with the shape of the mecha, finally quite enjoyed the fight scene between the 2 insect robots, even the maneuvers of the robots were quite eye-catching.
So Rizu concludes that the anime 86 Oups Eighty-Six is very enjoyable, especially for mecha lovers who like bloody battles between 2 robots. Don’t forget to miss the husbu able character designs and waifu able anyway.
However, the unavoidable reality was that most of them would all die and just wait their turn. The anime’s execution of this section is quite successful in draining the audience’s emotions. Even the last, very faint message could only be heard through Lena’s communicator. Good memories are fleeting with the exploding robot. Although some characters appear only briefly, the effects of losing those who are already dead are felt.
Anime 86 presents a plot that is similar to a roller coaster to play the emotions of the audience every episode. Of course, this anime is not for those of you who have a gentle heart. However, if you’re ready to take on a variety of feelings while watching it, this anime is one of the best in Spring 2021.
