A preview trailer was released for the season finale of Lycoris Recoil on the official Aniplex YouTube channel. The upcoming episode, titled “Recoil of Lycoris”, will air on Saturday, September 24, on Crunchyroll.
The series has made a lasting impact by becoming one of the highest-rated television anime series of 2022. After last week’s episode gave us plenty of epic moments the previous 11 episodes built up to, we still have one more in store that leaves some speculation of a possible second season. Although it’s rare to see an original anime series receive a sequel, it’s still possible. Birdie Wing – Golf Girls’ Story-, an original series animated by Bandai Namco Pictures, announced a Season 2 after the first ended earlier this year and in the past, we saw franchises like PSYCHO-PASS grow. The Lycoris Recoil season finale trailer does sort of hint at the possibility of a sequel but we’ll just have to wait and see!
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!
