A preview video was released for episode 2 of Lycoris Recoil on Tuesday on the official Aniplex YouTube channel. The upcoming episode is titled “The more the merrier” and will air on Saturday, July 9, exclusively on Crunchyroll.
Last week’s season premiere left a lasting impression as it kickstarted the series off in a major way. With wonderful exposition and plot development, Lycoris Recoil seems to be spearheading itself to be one of the better series out of the entire Summer 2022 lineup. With this week’s episode, it looks like Chisato will be dragging Takina along on some missions and getting into all kinds of nerve-wracking situations. And it looks like the hacker could make another appearance in this episode as well.
Lycoris Recoil is an original anime series produced by A-1 Pictures and directed by Sword Art Online‘s chief animation director, Shingo Adachi. The original story for Lycoris Recoil was created by Asaura, the same creator for the action-packed comedy series Ben-To. Among the cast is Chika Anzai as Chisato, Shion Wakayama as Takina, Ami Koshimizu as Misuki, and Kosuke Sakaki as Mika.
The official English website for the series describes the series as follows:
“LycoReco” is a café with a traditional Japanese twist located in downtown Tokyo. But the delicious coffee and sugary sweets are not the only orders this café takes! From delivering packages to short distances, to pick-ups and drop-offs on the lonely streets at night, to zombies and giant monster extermination…?! Whatever your problem, we’re here to help! We will solve any kind of “trouble” you may have! Waiting for you are the ever-smiling poster girl and the cool, serious newcomer. A petite girl who never wants to work and a young woman approaching thirty who wants to get married. And the manager is a nice guy who’s obsessed with Japan! Whatever your order is, leave it all up to us!
