'86' Anime Also Delays Episode 19 by 1 Week Due to 'Production Issues'
posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
The official website for the television anime of Asato Asato's 86 light novel series announced on Sunday that the staff are delaying the anime's 19th episode by one week due to "production issues." The episode will now air on December 4, instead of November 27. A special edition program for the franchise will air on November 27 instead.
Additionally, the anime had planned to air a special compilation episode on December 11 instead of a regular episode, but that airing is canceled.
The San Magnolia Republic has long been under attack by unmanned weapons from the neighboring Empire. Against this onslaught, the Republic has also deployed similar weapons, narrowly avoiding great loss of life and impending disaster-or at least that's how it seemed.
The truth is that it has never been possible to have no casualties. Young men and women drawn from the Republic's supposedly non-existent 86th district are organized into the "86 unit" and then ordered to pilot the "unmanned weapons" before heading to battle.
