Calendars[edit | edit source]

There are at least two calendars used in the world of 86 -Eighty Six-.

In the Light Novel, the Republic of San Magnolia uses the revolution that founded it to mark the start of its calendar, the Republic Year.

The Stellar Year[† 1]. is the international or global calendar, its start marks an unknown event.

The Anime solely uses the Stellar Year calendar. There may be some divergence between the light novel and the anime's timelines.

  • The Giadian Empire launched an all-out war against all of its neighboring countries—including the Republic of San Magnolia, the United Kingdom of Roa Gracia, and the Alliance of Wald—using the Legion.
  • Within half a month of the start of the war, the Republic Army was mostly destroyed. The Republic evacuated its predominately Alba population into eighty-five administrative sectors. The Special Wartime Peace Preservation Act, Presidential Order #6609 was enacted to strip the Colorata of their rights under the pretense of them being Giadian spies.
  • The Colorata were relocated outside of the Eighty-Five Sectors into the nonexistent Eighty-Sixth Sector. Now known as the Eighty-Six, they were forced to build a fortification around the Eighty-Five Sectors known as the Gran Mur.
  • Over the next decade, the Eighty-Six would be continuously exploited by the Republic through forced labor, human experimentation, and forced conscription.

RY 359 / SY 2140[edit | edit source]

  • Republic Military Industries developed the M1A4 Juggernaut as the Republic's answer to the Legion.

The Eighty-Six are conscripted into serving as Processors, with officers of the Republic Army overseeing them as Handlers.

May[edit | edit source]

  • Not long after Shin turned eight, he received a message of his mother's death on the battlefield. Shin, who hadn't understood why she had died, pestered his brother—Shourei—to give him an answer. Rei snapped at Shin and strangled him to a near death state. Shin gained the scar around his neck and the ability to hear the voices of the dead. Rei soon left for the frontlines.

RY 361 / SY 2142[edit | edit source]

  • Vaclav Milizé took his daughter, Vladilena Milizé, on a flight to the frontlines to show her how the Colorata were being mistreated by the Republic.

  • Start of Volume 10: Fragmental Neoteny.
  • Fragmental Neoteny, Pledge: Shin was conscripted into the Eastern Front's Halberd Squadron under the command of Alice Araich, a female Jet Processor. Alice was the person that gave him the scarf which covered his scar. The entire squadron had been wiped out save for Shin, who began his promise to take his fallen comrades' tags to his final destination.

RY 363 / SY 2144[edit | edit source]

  • The Giadian people overthrew the Giadian Empire and its royal family in a revolution to establish the Federal Republic of Giad, but lack the ability to deactivate the Legion. The Federacy was also unable to contact other countries, and began a bloody campaign to recapture its lost territory from the Legion alone.[† 2]
  • Fragmental Neoteny, Brand: Shin had come across a Juggernaut from an unknown squadron. Despite not knowing the Processor, he extracted a dog tag from the unit just like he would any other. It was then that Shin officially took up the personal name of Undertaker, with his personal mark based on the unknown unit's mark. He would later learn that the Juggernaut had belonged to his dead brother, Rei.

RY 368 / SY 2149[edit | edit source]

  • The month of respite had come to a close for the survivors. They confirmed that their place was not on civilian grounds, but on the battlefield.
  • The survivors enrolled in a three-month-long officer basic training course separate from one another in preparation for redeployment. Shin went to the Special Officer Academy alongside Eugene Rantz and Erwin Marcel.
  • Shin was shipped off to the 1028th Trial Unit after his basic training. As he had been utterly incompatible with the fighting style that the Federacy's M4A3 Vanagandr required, he was instead sent to test the newly developed XM2 Reginleif which had been reverse engineered from his Undertaker. The entire unit had been wiped out save for his company during a sortie, which eventually managed to turn the tides.
  • A month later, the 177th Armored Division's Nordlicht Squadron was formed from the Eighty-Six survivors, the Vargus mercenaries, such as Brent Bernholdt, and an assortment of Federacy pilots. Half of the squadron was later annihilated, leaving Shin as the squadron's highest ranking officer.
  • Eugene Rantz was euthanized by Shin during an operation.

  • The Gran Mur's gates were blasted open using the interception cannons under the order of Vladilena Milizé.

The Eigthy-Six obliged, some squadrons rushed to defend the First Sector, while others maintained defensive strongholds around internment camps.
  • The joint operation to eliminate the Morpho had commenced. The Nordlicht Squadron was the spearhead of the operation, with the Federacy, United Kingdom, and Alliance forces supporting them on their respective fronts. The XC-1 Nachzehrer was deployed to carry fifteen Nordlicht Processors along with Lieutenant Colonel Grethe Wenzel straight to the Morpho. The Morpho was successfully eliminated.
  • Two months after forming their defensive line, the Republic of San Magnolia was rescued by the forces of the Federacy. The Republic was given the minimum amount of aid given for their survival, while the Eighty-Six made up the focus of the Federacy's care. Out of the millions of Colorata that lived in the Republic before the war, only ten thousand survived.

Footnotes[edit | edit source]

  1. Stellar Year (星歴, Seireki?) is pronounced the same way as Anno Domini (西暦, Seireki?).
  2. Volume 2 states that the Federacy was established nine years ago. This meant that the Federacy had existed since the start of the war, and Kiriya's death four years before Volume 2 would indicate that the Empire was still active until at least SY 2146. This year only marks the fall of the Empire from the Republic's point of view.
  3. The Light Novel states that Kujo died 10 days before Lena synchronized with Shin (which would be May 12th), while Kujo dies on the day of in the Anime.
  4. This scene happened before their first battle with Lena on May 29th in the Light Novel. In the original scene, only Daiya was present.
