86 EIGHTY-SIX Storyline
San Magnolia has long been attacked by an army of unmanned drones from the Gigian Empire, the Legion. After years of painstaking research, the republic has finally developed autonomous drones itself that turn one-sided combat into a war without victims – at least that’s what the government claims.
In truth, there is no such thing as a war without victims. Beyond the walls that protect the 85 territories of the Republic lies the 86th sector. The young people of this abandoned country, deprived of their humanity, lead the “unmanned” weapons into battle.
