86: Eighty-Six Episode 19 finally aired, giving us some thrills and some nightmare fuel. The episode was once again delayed due to production issues. These have yet to be resolved, as the newest episode of the mecha anime will be delayed once more.
The hunt for Kiriya is more intense than ever, and we expect some very emotional moments for Shin and Frederica - if Shin survives, that is. The 12-episode second cour is now more than halfway through and we expect some major twists before the end.
If you look forward to finding out more, keep reading. Below you'll find everything you need to know about 86: Eighty-Six Episode 20 (Or 86 Season 2 Episode 9 depending on who you ask), including the release date and release time for the beloved mecha anime!
86: Eighty-Six Anime Episode 19 Recap
Warning: Spoilers for 86 Episode 19 below!
In Episode 19, we see Morpho in all its horror. It definitely makes you worry about Shin for a while, no matter what he's survived before. Even more horrifyingly, the damaged Morpho is revealed to be only a bait for another; one that Kiriya controls.
Shinnei descends into a battle mode only Kurena manages to snap him out of. Kiriya's superior, "No-Face" (which I can't repeat with a straight face without thinking of Spirited Away) orders him to withdraw. Shin and his friends go after him. Federacy rescues Grethe and the other Nordlicht survivors, but can't support Shin.
During a break, Shin and his comrades discover Frederica, who managed to sneak in and stay with them. Their first instinct is to be angry at her. For her part, Frederica explains that as a child "hostage" her role isn't to force them into battle. Rather, her goal is to ensure they return home, rather than fight to the death as they learned in 86. Her hope is that if they have her with them, they will actually care about surviving, rather than just winning. The group has no choice but to accept her presence. Shin ominously gives her a gun to kill herself and avoid capture if all adults die. Frederica refuses to even consider such a possibility.
