A preview video was released for episode 3 of Lycoris Recoil on the official Aniplex YouTube channel. The upcoming episode is titled “More haste, less speed” and will air on Saturday, July 16, exclusively on Crunchyroll.
After debuting at #1 on our first Summer 2022 weekly poll, Lycoris Recoil came back last week with another action-packed episode filled with mystery and topped off with an exciting twist. In just two episodes, the series has managed to become one of the most popular new anime of the season! After two fast-paced episodes to kickstart the series in high gear, this week looks to cool off a little bit to showcase plot and character development as Chisato comes in contact with Takina’s old squad. Meanwhile, more shady stuff seems to be happening behind the scenes as Takina and Chisato get to know each other more. As we all know at this point, Lycoris Recoil isn’t some basic, run-of-the-mill series—anything could happen.
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 are 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!
