Synopsis for 86: Eighty-six

The Republic of the Holy Magnolia. This country has long been besieged by its neighbor, the Giadian Empire, which created a series of unmanned drones called the Legion. After years of careful research, the republic eventually developed its own autonomous drones and turned the one-sided struggle into a casual war - or at least so the government claims.

In truth there is no such thing as a bloodless war. Behind the walls protecting the republic's eighty-five territories is the "nonexistent" "eighty-six sector". The young men and women of this deserted land are branded "The Eighty-Six" and lead the "unmanned" weapons into battle without humanity ... Shinn directs a detachment of eighty-six youths on the battlefield. Lena is a "manipulator" who, with the help of a special communication, commands the detachment from the far rear. The farewell story of the difficult and sad struggle between these two begins!
