Although the second cour of 86 -Eighty Six- had received a positive response from fans, the constant delay of episodes is dampening the enthusiasm.
The precarious situation between the Legion and the Republic is being suspended time and again due to these delays as various production issues keep coming up.
Episode 19 of the 86 -Eighty Six- anime has been delayed by a week and will be released on December 4, 2021. The episode was initially scheduled for release on November 27.
[Notice of future broadcast date and time changes]
Regarding the broadcast of episode 19 scheduled from 24:00 on Saturday, November 27, we have decided to change the broadcast date and time due to production reasons.
Please check the official website for future broadcast schedules.

Previously, episode 18 was also delayed by a week due to production issues. Instead of the episode, a special program was scheduled where the cast members talked about the second cour’s episodes.
Alas, this is not the last episode that will face a postponement as the December 11 episode will also be rescheduled due to a special broadcast event on that day.
The production committee has profusely apologized for the disorder, yet the continuous breaks are sure to disrupt the attention of fans.
Still, some fans have realized that it is better to wait a bit more rather than receive a rushed job. 86 -Eighty Six- has had a fabulous story and animation so far, and it’d be painful to see the quality go down due to a pinch.
With Shin riled up, the upcoming episodes are bound to be adrenaline-pumping. So, I hope these breaks cease soon so that new episodes can be enjoyed regularly like before.
About 86 -Eighty Six-
86 is a Japanese science fiction light novel series, written by Asato Asato and illustrated by Shirabi, with mechanical design by I-IV.
86 follows the story of a 16-year-old girl, Vladilena Milizé, better known as Lena. Lena serves as a major in the Republic of San Magnolia’s army and a handler for the ‘Processors’ of the Republic’s ‘unmanned drones’ known as Juggernauts.
Their goal is to use these drones to defend against Legion drones developed by the Giadian Empire, which started a war with them a while back. However, there is also a dark secret which the Republic holds.
