It's Too Late (今更そんなこと, Imasara Sonna Koto?) is the second episode of the second cour and the thirteenth overall episode of the 86 -Eighty Six- anime adaptation, originally broadcasted on October 9, 2021.
It's been a month since they were taken into custody by the Federal Republic of Giad. Shin and his friends spent the their lives there as "normal" boys and girls, working part-time jobs and attending cooking classes. In the city, they saw a "peaceful daily life" that they've never experienced before. However, they only stared at that peace with unsettled expressions... After taking in the sights and sounds of the city, they came to a decision.
Differences from Light Novel
- The scene when we see Raiden, Theo and Anju in their daily lives in Federacy is expanded from the source, which only mentioned their activities instead of showing them.
- Raiden's reaction, as well as Theo and Anju's reaction, to the Vánagandr parade is original from the anime.
- In light novel, Kurena is making a round of window shopping when she ends up seeing the parade across the street, unlike the anime where she is already inside a store.
- The scene where Frederica watches TV is anime original.
- Shin leaving with Frederica to buy a stuffed animal is anime original.
- The dialogue between Raiden and Frederica at dinner has been slightly modified compared to the light novel. In the anime, Frederica finds out about Shin's brother, something that in the light novel is only known shortly after.
- The after-credits scene is anime original, in order to connect with the events of episode 14.
