The story is set in "Lyco-Reco" (Riko-Riko) a Japanese-style cafe in the old downtown area of Tokyo. The cafe takes in orders for anything from delicious coffee to sugary sweets ... and perhaps a little something extra like dealing with kids, business negotiations, love advice, one-on-ones about zombies and giant monsters, and more. "No matter what you order, we'll serve it up...!"

The series will premiere in July. Anzai and Wakayama will appear at the advance screening of the first three episodes at TOHO CINEMAS Kinshichō Rakutenchi theater in Tokyo on June 12.

I didn't expect it to be about the cafe but it looks funny so far base on the PV. I love Chisato's giggle already.

She looks similar to Reina from Hibike! Euphonium. And how coincidence that Chisato is voiced by VA of aforementioned character.

Episode 1

Huh. That was... surprisingly enjoyable. Chisato's smile and happy attitude were too bright to ignore. I was expecting to hate this once the previews started revealing what it really was, but... I didn't hate it after all. It would have to pull off something extra special for me to begin to really care about it, but as an amusing show to casually catch up on each weekend... I think it might do alright.

Ep.1

The first episode is alright. It balances the 'funny' side and 'action' side well. The story is not too light and not too serious. Animation is as good as one would expect from A-1.

Main characters are instant likeable for me. Chisato is genki girl who have a hint of serious side and quite skilled at her job. I can forgive Chisato no-kill policy since she did it in such a badass way. Takina is serious in a funny way and she's trigger happy LOL. Their conversation and banter are enjoyable to listen too.

Now Let's see how the plot will develop from here.

ED animation is great. Too bad we don't get to see OP in this episode.

I'll say it: Genki Gunslinger Girls.

That said, I didn't know what to expect from this, the cold opening was very surprising contrast to the way they've been portraying the PVs, and I was intrigued by it.

I enjoyed the early hints at conspiracy/mystery, so there is even a "hard-boiled" feel to it despite the main characters.

There was a lot to like here.

(Aside from the 'suppressors aka silencers don't actually work that way' element that is omnipresent in media.)

I could've sworn that Gun Smith Cats was the only anime that did silencer sound right. Any recommendation of other titles that did it right?

Do you think they'll actually get around to explaining why all their hitmen are high school girls, or it's just something we have to roll with? That's my only beef with this show. Maybe they actually explained it and I missed it since the show was buffering every 20 seconds and I spent most of the time on my phone as a result. Crunchyroll needs to get their shit together.

The rest was really good.

Yeah this was good, but no wonder takina deserved to be puched if she is pulling stuff like that all the time, using the woman that she needs to protect as bait was pretty shitty.

I think they will explain it at some point. The first ep. is mostly an introduction to the overall plot and main characters. They still don't explain about how one get chosen to become Lycoris, and the meaning of uniform color (This one is easy to guess), for example.

Edited: @belatkuro Oh I missed that line about taking in orphans.

A short line by the glasses cake lady looking for marriage said that the association was taking in orphans and raising them as assassins and she was fed up with it. Apparently most that they pick up are girls. So yeah just roll with it. Cute girls being cute secret agents.

I had no idea what I went into as I didn't watch any PVs of it and I neither like or dislike it. It's one of the shows Aniplus picked up so I'll watch it I guess and see where it goes.

Interesting that in the credits, Walnut's seiyuu is blurred out. He was using a fake voice in the episode but to go that far for that character is a pretty amusing detail.

Maybe it's just me but the look & interaction of the duo MCs reminds me of Akane & Rikka from Gridman.

Probably will watch it tomorrow since there was so much today, but someone said it was Gridman without Gridman

I don't think there are any others.

The cracking sound is still 120 dB. It won't travel as far because it is no longer 140+ dB, and that's what movies, live-action, and anime essentially never get right. The sound itself is close enough, but not how loud it still is. You can easily hear it 50-100 meters away, instead of over a kilometer away.

Not something where teenage girls can execute a criminal in a park and nobody notices. It's really my only complaint, and easy enough to ignore because it is so common.
