86 Season 3, when will it happen?

Many wars in action anime feature some form of the army using modernized weapons as part of the mecha military.

One such series employing this trope was the anime adaption of Asato Asato’s’ light novel, 86.

The premise is set in a world wherein the Republic of San Magnolia has been in constant conflict with the Empire of Giad for a decade.

The Republic of San Magnolia has often come second due to San Magnolia s’ mechanized Legion but has now developed its units called Juggernauts.

These Juggernauts are controlled remotely by pilots known as Handlers.

The public is unaware that these warheads are being controlled by not robots but actual humans, who are referred to as 86.

Although they are humans, 86 are only considered as sub humans who are forced to fight in the war to receive better treatment.

The story follows Major Vladilena “Lena” Milizé, an outspoken activist who fights against the injustice of the nation’s’ army.

She is assigned to the Spearhead squadron, and immediately expresses resentment due to her support for 86.

Captain of the squad, Shinei Nouzen is the only survivor from past missions and feels obligated to share the burden of his fallen comrades.

What will when the destiny of these two young souls come face to face? Will it be burn a desire of salvation or destroy in the abyss of doom.
