Crunchyroll announced on Wednesday that it will stream English, Portuguese, Spanish, French, and German dubs for the television anime of Asato Asato‘s 86 light novel series. The company will reveal more details at a later date.

The anime premiered on April 10. The anime will air for two cours (quarters of the year). However, the two cours will be split, and not air one after another. Crunchroll is streaming the series as it airs in Japan.

Toshimasa Ishii (episode director for Space Brothers, ERASED, Occultic;Nine) is directing the anime at A-1 Pictures. Toshiya Ono (The Promised Neverland, Land of the Lustrous, Blue Exorcist: Kyoto Saga) is in charge of the series scripts, and Tetsuya Kawakami (Interviews with Monster Girls, Robot Girls Z, The Asterisk War: The Academy City on the Water) is designing the characters. Shirogumi is producing the CG, and Hiroyuki Sawano and Kohta Yamamoto are contributing the music.

Hitorie performs the opening theme song “3-bun 29-byō” (3 Minutes 29 Seconds), and SawanoHiroyuki[nZk]:mizuki will performs the ending theme song “Avid.”

Yen Press is publishing the light novel series in English, and it describes the story:

The Republic of San Magnolia has been
attacked by its neighbor, the Empire. 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!

Asato launched the novel series under Kadokawa‘s Dengeki Bunko imprint in April 2017. Shirabi (The Ryuo’s Work Is Never Done!, Myriad Colors Phantom World) is drawing the illustrations, and the artist I-IV (Aldnoah.Zero, Re:CREATORS) is in charge of mechanical design. The light novel series has a manga adaptation by Motoki Yoshihara in Square Enix‘s Young Gangan magazine. Yen Press is also releasing the manga in English. The light novel series is also inspiring a Gakuen 86 (Academy 86) manga by Suzume Somemiya in Kadokawa‘s Monthly Comic Alive magazine.
