Studio A-1 Pictures’ original Lycoris Recoil anime released a fall-themed jacket cover for the fourth volume of BD and DVD. The product compiles the eighth and ninth episodes and is scheduled to be released on December 21, 2022.
The newly-unveiled jacket cover was drawn by the original character designer Imigimuru and depicts the series’ main characters dressed for chillier weather; Chisato Nishikigi (left) is sitting and Takina Inoue (right) is standing. They are surrounded by pumpkins, which give the illustration a Halloween feel.
Chika Anzai (Chisa Kotegawa in Grand Blue Dreaming) voiced Chisato Nishikigi, while Shion Wakayama (Destiny in Takt Op. Destiny) played the role of Takina Inoue. The voice actresses took the top 2 spots in Anime Corner’s Seiyuu of the Season for Summer 2022 with Anzai’s win.
Other than the jacket illustration, the product compiles;
- Original Soundtrack 2
- Non-credit Endings (Episodes 8 and 9)
- Web Previews (Episodes 9 and 10)
- Café LycoReco Secret Operational Record (20 Pages)
