Welcome to the new age of Japan, where they train orphaned middle school girls to replace the country's military force. That is Lycoris, a secret syndicate with the purpose of uphelding public safety in Japan.
After ignoring the orders of her superiors, Takina Inoue has transferred to Cafe LycoReco, where she can learn from Chisato Nishikigi, one of the top-tier Lycoris. Takina is a realist who desires results, while Chisato is cheerful and brimming with life. Together the eccentric pair have teamed-up to do all sorts of mission, from serving in a cafe to bodyguard duties, etc. Takina hopes to return back to her designation,
Chisato helps her produce results. If you love spy-action thriller shows with fun characters or just something chill to watch, then this is a treat for you.
As much as I love the idea of cute girls with guns doing badass stuff like dodging bullets with ultra instinct, shooting terrorists with an aim bot, and elite hacking. The show did a good job of executing it all out. The fluid movements of the characters, especially in the action scenes were captivating to watch. Huge applause to the choreographer. The animation is also visually appealing. A-1 Pictures sure did deliver a show with lots of potential.
The opening song is sung by ClariS, ending song is sung by Sayuri. Both artists I am familiar with and fond of during the old times.
Overall, one of the best shows this Summer 2022.
