Kadokawa’s listing for the June issue of its Comic Alive magazine records a new prequel manga for Asato’s 86 light novel series named 86 – Fragmental Neoteny.
The listing doesn’t give a depiction of the manga. The magazine will release on April 26. Yen Press is distributing 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 dispatched the novel series under Kadokawa’s Dengeki Bunko imprint in April 2017. Shirabi is drawing the illustrations, and the artist I-IV is responsible for the mechanical plan.
