The official website for director Shingo Adachi‘s original television anime Lycoris Recoil posted the anime’s second character promotional video on Wednesday. The video introduces the new café staff member Takina Inoue:
The story is set in “Lyco-Reco” (Riko-Riko) a Japanese-style cafe in the old downtown area of Tokyo. The cafe takes in orders for anything from delicious coffee to sugary sweets … and perhaps a little something extra like dealing with kids, business negotiations, love advice, one-on-ones about zombies and giant monsters, and more. “No matter what you order, we’ll serve it up…!”
The new anime depicts the “absurd daily life” of the blonde girl Chisato Nishikigi and the brunette girl Takina Inoue.
The cast includes:
Chika Anzai as the always smiling Chisato Nishikigi
Shion Wakayama as the more reserved and serious Takina Inoue
Ami Koshimizu as Mizuki Nakahara, who is around 30 and desperately seeking marriage
Misaki Kuno as Kurumi, who doesn’t want to work
Kosuke Sakaki as Mika, the café manager
The anime will be Adachi’s directorial debut. Before this anime, Adachi was the character designer and chief animation director for Sword Art Online and Wagnaria!! (Working!!). Imigimuru (This Art Club Has a Problem!) is designing the television anime, and A-1 Pictures is producing the project. Ben-To author Asaura drafted the story. Kimika Onai (Nogizaka46, Sakurazaka46 outfits) designed the characters’ uniforms.
The series will premiere in July. Anzai and Wakayama will appear at the advance screening of the first three episodes at TOHO CINEMAS Kinshichō Rakutenchi theater in Tokyo on June 12.
