You can read our review here if you don’t mind the spoilers!
What Time Does the Eighty-Six Episode 23 Dub Release?
The final episode will be dropping on Crunchyroll May 21st for premium users, and a week later for free users. The network confirmed with Postapocalytpic Media that the new 86 EIGHTY-SIX dubs will air at 12:30 p.m. Pacific /3:30 p.m. Eastern. Time to grab your popcorn and a bunch of tissues because it is a very emotional one! Not only because of the show itself, but because it has a deeper meaning in some people’s hearts as the main actor for the protagonist’s voice was recently diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer. He had to step down for the last two episodes of the series, leaving voice actor Aleks Le to fill in the massive shoes.
Le didn’t disappoint and left people in awe with his performance. On the Crunchyroll website for episode 22, many positively comment on the subject. User MrMcFunkaDunk says “Aleks did a wonderful job of Shin in place of Billy. I’m sure Billy would be proud of that performance.” Some even didn’t realize that Shin had a different voice actor.
I'm honored to be filling in for Billy as Shin Nouzen for the last 2 eps of 86 EIGHTY-SIX. They’re mighty big shoes to fill, so I’ll work really hard to make you proud.
Let’s do our best to send him some love & support✨
