Outside the 85 districts of the Republic there is the ‘non-existent 86th district,’ where young men and women continue to fight. Sheen directs the actions of young suicide bombers, while Lena is a “curator” who commands a detachment from a remote rear. The story of the tragic struggle between these two begins!”

The second season of 86 is set to premiere in October. The first season of the anime is currently available to stream on Crunchyroll.
