Voice actor Yoshitsugu Matsuoka made an appearance in the fourth episode of A-1 Pictures’ Lycoris Recoil anime. The episode aired on Saturday, July 23, and Matsuoka voiced a terrorist named Majima who attacked the subway. Judging from the ending of the episode, we will be seeing more of the character. Official design has been revealed:
Matsuoka is perhaps best-known for voicing Kirito from the Sword Art Online series, which was also animated by A-1 Pictures. Sword Art Online character designer and animator, Shingo Adachi is directing Lycoris Recoil anime and many fans noticed a few interesting things after the fourth episode ended. In the subway fighting scene, we were able to see the cameos of a few Sword Art Online characters: girls who looked like Lisbeth and Suguha and another girl with Asuna’s hairstyle.

- Shion Wakayama as Takina Inoue
