86: Eighty Six Action
The Republic of San Magnolia has long been under attack by an army of unmanned drones from the neighboring Giadian Empire, known as the Legion. After years of painstaking research, the Republic has finally developed its own autonomous drones and turned the one-sided struggle into a war without sacrifice – at least that is what the government claims.
But there is no such thing as a war without blood. Beyond the fortified walls that protect the eighty-five territories of the Republic lies the “non-existent” eighty-six sector. The young men and women of this abandoned country are branded and controlled as “the eighty-six”, deprived of their humanity, the “unmanned” weapons in battle.
