Kodoani.com – Anime official website Lycoris Recoil announced on Friday that the series has changed the blindfold illustration for episode 11. The illustrations will be replaced across streaming platforms and all subsequent TV shows. The episode will also use new illustrations.
The reason for the change is that in the original illustration, the characters are shown putting bilberry flowers (i.e. lycoris) in their mouths. Flowers are poisonous, the production board asked fans not to imitate the pose in real life.
The original poses are still maintained in the opening animation. The production committee explained that this was to respect the artistic intent of the scene.
The anime premiered on July 2.
