86 EIGHTY-SIX Anime Adaptation Shows Off Its Ending Theme

This season marked the debut of the anime adaptation of 86 EIGHTY-SIX, based on the series of light novels written by Asato Asato and illustrated by Shirabi. The hotly-anticipated series just kicked off earlier this month on Crunchyroll, so the Aniplex YouTube channel celebrated by sharing the episode two version of the anime's ending theme.

The 86 EIGHTY-SIX ED has SawanoHiroyuki[nZk]:mizuki performing the song "Avid," with photographer Satsuki Takahashi taking point on the featured illustrations. Check it out below, and look for new episodes of the anime to debut on Crunchyroll every Saturday at 9:30am PT.



Here's how Crunchyroll describes the series:

Called “Juggernaut,” these are the unmanned combat drones developed by the Republic of San Magnolia in answer to the attacks by the autonomous unmanned drones of the neighboring Empire of Giad, the “Legion”. But they’re only unmanned in name. In reality, they are piloted by the Eighty-sixers—those considered to be less than human and treated as mere tools. Determined to achieve his own mysterious ends, Shin, the captain of Spearhead Squadron, which is comprised of Eighty-sixers, continues to fight a hopeless war on a battlefield where only death awaits him.
