86 - Eighty Six - Wiki

Let's Go (行こう, Ikou?) is the eighth episode of the 86 -Eighty Six- anime adaptation, originally broadcasted on May 29, 2021.


The truth of the Spearhead Squadron was revealed by Shin. That is, the Special Reconnaissance Mission forced upon them. Now informed of its existence, Lena pleads for Annette's help in order to somehow rescind the mission. She is, however, dismissed by Annette, who thinks that there is nothing they can do. Annette finally snapped at Lena and began telling the truth of the Para-RAID system with a story regarding her former neighbors.[1]


After retreating back to base, Shin reveals to Raiden that he heard Shourei's voice among the Legion, and he is eager to confront him one final time. Meanwhile, Lena studies Spearhead's history and discovers that numerous previous iterations of the unit had been sent on Special Reconnaissance Missions to guarantee their destruction. She goes to Annette to ask for help, which only makes Annette furious as Lena's idealism only reminds her of how she allowed her Colorata neighbors, who were her friends, to be taken away by the government. She reveals that their Para-RAID technology was developed by performing human experimentation on the Eighty-Six, and her own father committed suicide from the guilt. Lena and Annette have a falling out and Lena goes to her uncle next to protest Spearhead's upcoming Special Reconnaissance Mission. However, he explains that the complete extermination of the Eighty-Six is necessary, because if the truth of their treatment were ever to get out, the Republic would immediately become a pariah state among foreign nations. Unable to do anything, Lena can only bid Shin farewell. Shin informs Lena that once he destroys Shourei, who is now a Shepherd, that will cause enough of a disturbance among the Legion so that there is a chance that help may arrive from the East, where he cannot hear the Legion. On the day of the mission, the last remaining members of Spearhead: Shin, Raiden, Theoto, Kurena, and Anju, clean out their base and head out. Meanwhile, Shourei moves out to intercept them, eager to assimilate Shin into the Legion in a warped desire to protect him.[2]
