  • "86 Eighty-Six" Season 2, Episode 9 (Episode 20) is releasing Saturday
  • The episode will stream on Crunchyroll

After a one-week break, the anime is returning with a new installment showcasing what Raiden Shuga wants Shin Nouzen to do next. "86 Eighty-Six" Season 2, Episode 9 (Episode 20) is called "Together Unto Death."

The official website has released the spoiler stills and synopsis of "86 Eighty-Six" Season 2, Episode 9 (Episode 20). They suggest Raiden wants Shin to retire with Frederica Rosenfort, who sneaked into the battle area in order to be with Shin.

The threat of Morpho continues to haunt the squad and it remains to be seen how Shin responds.

In Episode 19 of the anime, Shin found out he won't be receiving any air or military support. Also, the Federacy was not in a position to send any reinforcement to support the squad.

The leadership asked Shin if he still wanted to continue. Shin responded that any air support or military reinforcement was never part of his plan. He informed them they will continue to fight against the Legion because if they don't take it down, it will kill them all.

"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.

The cast of "86 Eighty-Six" anime includes Ikumi Hasegawa as Vladilena Milizé, Shōya Chiba as Shinei Nōzen, Yuya Uchida as Ernst Zimmerman, Seiichirō Yamashita as Raiden Shuga, Sayumi Suzushiro as Kurena Kukumila, Saori Hayami as Anju Emma, Natsumi Fujiwara as Theoto Rikka, Misaki Kuno as Frederica Rosenfort, Kana Ueda as Grethe Wenzel, Atsushi Tamaru as Eugene Rantz, Itaru Yamamoto as Brent Bernholdt, Kengo Takanashi as Erwin Marcel and Asuna Tomari as Shiden Iida.
