Designer Shingo Adachi to debut as director in July
Kodoani.com – Official website for anime Lycoris Recoil director Shingo Adachi posted the anime’s first full promotional video on Friday. Unlike last month’s teaser promo video, this new one features actual animated footage from the series.
The story is set in “Lyco-Reco” (Riko-Riko) a Japanese-style cafe in the quaint downtown district of Tokyo. The cafe takes orders for anything from good coffee to sweets… and perhaps a little something extra like dealing with kids, business negotiations, love advice, live corpses ghosts and giant monsters, etc. “Whatever you order, we’ll deliver…!”
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 years old and longing for marriage
Misaki Kuno as Kurumi, who doesn’t want to work
Kosuke Sakaki as Mika, the cafe manager
The anime will be the directorial debut of Adachi. Prior to this anime, Adachi was the character designer and animation director for Sword Art Online and Wagnaria!!. Imigimuru is designing the television anime and A-1 Pictures is producing the project. Ben-To author Asaura drafted the story. Kimika Onai designed the characters’ uniforms.
The anime series will premiere in July. Anzai and Wakayama will appear at the pre-screening of the first three episodes at the TOHO CINEMAS Kinshichō Rakutenchi theater in Tokyo on June 12.
