The director’s official website Shingo AdachiThe original television anime of Recoil of Lycoris released the anime’s first full promotional video on Friday. Unlike last month’s promotional video, this new video features actual animated footage from the series.
The story takes place in “Lyco-Reco” (Riko-Riko), a Japanese-style cafe in the old city center of Tokyo. The cafe takes orders for everything from delicious coffee to sweet treats… and maybe a little something extra like looking after the kids, business negotiations, love advice, one-on-one on the zombies and giant monsters, and more. “Whatever you order, we’ll serve it…!”
The cast includes:
Chika Anzai like the always smiling Chisato Nishikigi
Shion Wakayama like the most reserved and serious Takina Inoue
Friend Koshimizu like Mizuki Nakahara, who is in her mid-thirties and desperate for marriage
Misaki Kuno like Kurumi, who doesn’t want to work
Kosuke Sakaki as Mika, the cafe manager
The anime will be Adachi’s directorial debut. Prior to this anime, Adachi was the character designer and chief animation director for Sword Art Online and Wagnaria!! (Work!!). Imigimuru (This art club has a problem!) designs the television anime, and Pictures A-1 produces the project. Ben To author Asaura wrote the story. Kimika Onai (Nogizaka46outfits Sakurazaka46) designed the characters’ uniforms.
The series will air in July. Anzai and Wakayama will appear at the premiere of the first three episodes at TOHO CINEMAS Kinshichō Rakutenchi Theater in Tokyo on June 12.
