A preview trailer was released for episode 8 of Lycoris Recoil on the official Aniplex YouTube channel. The upcoming episode titled “Another day, another dollar” will air on Saturday, August 20, exclusively on Crunchyroll.
The window on Chisato’s past continues to open as the series continues. In last week’s episode, fans were given a rather slow episode, or at least slow in Lycoris Recoil terms, but we’re given a lot of new information on our main cast of characters and their past, specifically Chisato. And as that window continues to open, so will the plans both DA and the Alan Institute have in store. With everything beginning to intertwine, it’s only a matter of time until heads clash again as they did in episode 6.
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 Lycoris Recoil 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!
