Lycoris Recoil Synopsis
The number of terrorist acts in Japan has never been lower, thanks to the efforts of a syndicate called Direct Attack (DA). The organization raises orphaned girls as assassins to carry out killings under its “Lycoris” program. Takina Inoue is an exceptional Lycoris, with a strong sense of will and a penchant for perfection. Unfortunately, a hostage situation tests her patience, and the resulting act of insubordination gets her transferred out of the DA. She’s not thrilled about losing the only place she ever belonged, but reluctantly arrives at her new base of operations: LycoReco, a disguised diner.
However, Takina’s new partner turns out to be very different from what she imagined. Despite being the famous Lycoris prodigy, Chisato Nishikigi seems almost unconcerned with her obligations. She drags Takina into all sorts of odd jobs under the simple explanation of helping people in need. Takina is further taken aback when Chisato takes down a group of armed assailants without killing any of them. Feeling like a fish out of water, Takina is determined to rejoin the DA, but Chisato is determined to show her that there is more to life than just taking it.
