After a one-week break, the showrunners are set to resume the broadcast of "86 Eighty-Six." The massive army of Legion stands in the path of the Nachzehrer in Season 2, Episode 8 (Episode 19). The new episode is titled "As It Is."

Nachzehrer has taken off successfully and is proceeding toward the target as planned. However, things are about to get chaotic when the fighter jet faces an inevitable army of Legion, according to the spoiler stills and synopsis of "86 Eighty-Six" Season 2, Episode 8 (Episode 19).

Meanwhile, Grethe wants to send Shin and his comrades toward Morpho while avoiding any conflict.

The federal forces are not ready to retreat as they remain on the frontline to protect their hometown and families.

Morpho, which is a giant railgun Legion, continues to remain a major threat as it is capable of single-handedly beating the forces.

"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," read the official series synopsis, according to Crunchyroll.
