Lycoris Recoil Episode 3: Release Date and Where to Watch

Lycoris Recoil Episode 3 Release Date
Lycoris Recoil

Lycoris Recoil Episode 3 is set to release on the weekend. This original Japanese anime television series is produced by A-1 Pictures. Director Shingo Adachi incorporated Imigimuru’s designs and Asaura’s series composition into the series.

“Lyco-Reco” follows Chisato Nishikigi and Takina Inoue as they live their “absurd daily lives” in Tokyo’s old downtown. The story takes place in a Japanese-style cafe called “Riko-Riko” in the old district. The café offers a wide range of services, including delectable coffee, sweet treats, and sometimes a little extra such as dealing with children, business negotiations, love counseling, extortion of zombies, etc. Episode 2 is titled “The more, the merrier” Fans are excited to see what the next episode brings to us.

Lycoris Recoil Episode 2 Review

The episode opens with a delightfully Lain-like scene of two hackers meeting in cyberspace. One is Walnut, who we met last week, and the other is Roboto, a new face. The two are in a tense relationship, and Roboto recently revealed Walnut’s apartment to mysterious billionaire Allen Adams. As you may have noticed, the LycoReco cafe girls helped Walnut escape from the country after his apartment was destroyed by a car touchpad toward the end of the premiere. This comes across as a fairly straightforward premise, and it mostly is, but numerous small details color the entire story.

Takina Inoue and Chisato Nishikigi From Lycoris Recoil

To begin, we learn that Takina and Chisato have been dating for about a month. And we learn that Adams, who goes by the alias “Mr. Yoshi,” has become a regular at the cafe. (He attempts to play the nice, well-intentioned rich customer…maybe a bit too hard, even giving Chisato a souvenir from the Russian trip). In almost every aspect of the job they pull off here, Chisato and Takina’s approaches are deliberately juxtaposed. Chisato and Takina have very different personalities, but they work well together. When Chisato attends the briefing, she appears to be distracted and fails to remember most of the specifics of where she should go and how to get there, Takina, on the other hand, knows everything. Takina sips a jelly drink—Soylent?—to gain energy before anything truly scary occurs, whilst Chisato consumes a bento box instead.

As part of the mission, Walnut is escorted by the mercenaries hired by Roboto – who, we learn, is working for Allen himself – while he is pursued by a group of mercenaries. It’s also fun stuff. Chisato is disappointed when she sees that the Lambo-like supercar she’d spotted in the parking lot won’t be their ride when the two meet Walnut (who spends the entire episode dressed in a squirrel suit). Throughout the anime, Chisato uses rubber bullets while Takina uses only a minor compromise to shoot shoulders instead of heads when things get hairy. Even here, the two are very different. Chisato’s strategy appears to be the more effective of the two. She calmly sidesteps her way out of point-blank rifle fire, literally waltzing between shots as if nothing unusual is happening. This is a ridiculously cool moment that I hope has a sci-fi hokum explanation.

Later, Takina tends to the wounds of one of their enemies so he doesn’t bleed out in what has become a recurring pattern. However, as she does that, Takina is shot from across the roof by a squirrel-suited hacker. In the ensuing bloody mess, Chisato is, for the first time in the first two episodes, visibly rattled, and she and Takina grimly carry his dead body to an ambulance. When it looked like the episode was going to end on a low note, Walnut got out of the ambulance bed, took off his helmet, and revealed himself to be…Mizuki?

Kurumi and Chisato From Lycoris Recoil

The entire plot of Lycoris Recoil is an elaborate blind op, and Mizuki always wears the squirrel costume. The Lycorii handle the hard parts, but Mizuki and Mika do the pretending, wearing bulletproof squirrel costumes. That means you can pull off this borderline corny twist. After helping them out with future missions, the real Walnut, an adult girl, switches to a fake name called Kurumi (Misaki Kuno, thankfully using her lower, naturalistic register instead of what she used to play Chisato on Prima Doll recently). This episode ends with Mr. Adams patronizing the cafe once again and Mika asking him straight up what he and Chisato do. Perhaps this is an introduction to next week’s episode?
