In the Republic of San Magnolia, the production of unmanned combat drones, known as “Juggernauts,” is a response to attacks by the autonomous drones of the Giad Empire, called the “Legion.”

However, the term “unmanned” is misleading. In reality, these drones are piloted by individuals known as Eighty-Six, treated as subhuman in San Magnolia and dehumanized as mere tools.


Shin, the captain of the Spearhead Squadron consisting of the Eighty-Six, is determined to achieve a personal goal, leading them into seemingly futile battles where death looms.

On the contrary, Vladilena Milize, also known as Major Lena, is among the few who see the Eighty-Six as human beings, caring for their well-being amidst the dehumanizing environment.
