According to the Republic of San Magnolia, their ongoing war against the Giadian Empire has no casualties—however, that is mere propaganda. While the silver-haired Alba of the Republic's eighty-five sectors live safely behind protective walls, those of different appearances are interned in a secret eighty-sixth faction. Known within the military as the Eighty-Six, they are forced to fight against the Empire's autonomous Legion under the command of the Republican "Handlers." Vladilena Milizé is assigned to the Spearhead squadron to replace their previous Handler. Shunned by her peers for being a fellow Eighty-Six supporter, she continues to fight against their inhumane discrimination. Shinei Nouzen is the captain of the Spearhead squadron. Infamous for being the sole survivor of every squadron he's been in, he insists on shouldering the names and wishes of his fallen comrades. When the fates of these young souls from two different worlds collide, will it ignite the spark that lights their path to salvation, or will they burn themselves in the flames of despair?

Don’t miss out on this fantastic story.


A gripping, beautiful tale of institutionalized genocide and inevitable death on a brutal sci-fi battlefield. Near flawless production.


Sweet jesus mother of god this animation and art is beautiful. It could honestly be the shittest story known to man and I’d still love it


Simply fantastic, and far greater than I expected. This might be a contender for Anime of the Season, if not the year.


What a rollercoaster of emotions.


What if Darling in The Franx was actually an RTS?


Provocative, politically-driven war story, presented with beautiful art direction/animation. By the end, you really care for the characters.
