Aniplex has announced a new anime production based on the original ‘Lycoris Recoil’. The format of the new project has yet to be announced.
The announcement’s tagline reads, “Their story… has not ended.”
Earlier in the day, the announcement was made at the “Lycoris Recoil Café Presents After Party! Tomorrow is another day” event.
The anime Lycoris Recoil premiered on July 2. The anime was streamed on Crunchyroll as it aired in Japan, and an English dub was also available. According to Crunchyroll, the anime is:
There is a secret behind these peaceful days.
“DA – Direct Attack” is a covert organisation that prevents crime. “Lycoris” is their all-girl agent group. This peaceful way of life is entirely due to these young ladies. Chisato Nishikigi is the most powerful Lycoris agent of all time. Takina Inoue, the talented but mysterious Lycoris, joins them. They collaborate at one of its locations, Café LycoReco.
This café accepts orders ranging from coffee and sweets to childcare, shopping, teaching Japanese to foreign students, and so on. The majority of the tasks are unsuitable for Lycoris.
Chisato is a free-spirited and optimistic pacifist. And the cool-headed and efficient Takina. The chaotic daily lives of this mismatched couple begin!
Since its initial release, Lycoris Recoil has spawned a manga adaptation, spin-off manga, spin-off light novel, and stage play. Hideo Kojima, the creator of Metal Gear Solid, became interested in the anime and provided a quote (and his face) for the light novel’s obi. Kojima also retweeted the announcement video for the new film.
The anime marked Adachi’s directorial debut. Adachi previously worked for Sword Art Online and Wagnaria!! (Working!!) as a character designer and chief animation director. Imigimuru (This Art Club Has a Problem!) created the television anime, which was produced by A-1 Pictures. The story was written by Asaura, a Ben-To author. Kimika Onai designed the uniforms (Nogizaka46, Sakurazaka46 outfits).
ClariS performed the opening theme song “ALIVE,” and Sayuri performed the ending theme song “Hana no T.” (Flower Tower).
