Lycoris Recoil is an original anime from studio A-1 Pictures, and the story follows cute girls who secretly keep a Japanese city safe. How do they do it? Well, they work for a secret organization that has little mercy for anyone who commits crimes. We’ve already seen the brutality of it all in the first episode, as well as one of the main characters (Chisato) and her own style of doing things as a top-level Licoris. The official story synopsis:
“LycoReco” is a cafe with a traditional Japanese flavor located in the center of Tokyo. But delicious coffee and sweet pastries are not the only orders this cafe accepts! From short distance package delivery, to pick up and drop off on lonely streets at night, to zombies and giant monster slaying…?! Whatever your problem, we’re here to help! We will solve any kind of “problem” you may have!
The ever-smiling poster girl and the cool, serious newcomer await. A petite girl who never wants to work and a young woman in her thirties who wants to get married. And the manager is a nice guy who is obsessed with Japan! Whatever your order, leave it all to us!
Not all summer 2022 anime shows have premiered yet and week 1 is still too early to tell, but Lycoris Recoil certainly has the potential to be one of the best this season!
