Voice actor Yoshitsugu Matsuoka appeared 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 attacks the subway. Judging by the end of the episode, we’ll see more of the character. Official design is revealed:
Matsuoka is perhaps best known for voicing Kirito from Sword Art Online series that was also animated by A-1 Pictures. Sword Art Online character designer and animator, Shingo Adachi directed Lycoris Recoil anime and many fans noticed a few interesting things after the end of the fourth episode. In the subway fight scene, we got 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.
Lycoris Recoil began broadcasting earlier this month. Crunchyroll is streaming the anime in English and the main cast includes:
- Shion Wakayama as Takina Inoue
- Chika Anzai as Chisato Nishikigi

- And Koshimizu as Mizuki Nakahara

The story is an original work by Spider Lily (consisting of Kadokawa Corporation, Dentsu Entertainment, and Aniplex) and Asaura, who is credited for the original story.
For these peaceful days – behind all this there is a secret.
A secret organization that prevents crimes: “DA – Direct Attack”.
And their group of girl agents: “Lycoris”.
This peaceful everyday life is thanks to these young girls.
Elite Chisato Nishikigi is the strongest Licoris agent of all time.
Next to him is Takina Inoue, the talented but mysterious Licoris.
They work together in one of its branches – Café LycoReco.
Here, the orders this cafe accepts range from coffee and pastries to babysitting, shopping, teaching Japanese to foreign students, etc.
These are mostly tasks that are not suitable for Lycoris.
The freedom-loving and optimistic pacifist Chisato.
And the cool and efficient Takina.
The chaotic daily life of this mismatched duo begins!
