Episode 1 Spoilers
The anime “Lycoris Recoil” begins with a scene in which Chisoku Nishiki is summoned by Mika. Japan, a country governed by the rule of law, is known for its lack of danger, but behind the scenes, a group of girls known as “Lycoris” have been keeping Japan safe. In the first episode of the anime, one of the Lycoris is taken hostage by an arms dealer, and Takina Inoue defeats the arms dealer with a machine gun after communication with the command center is cut off.
Takina Inoue used a machine gun to defeat the arms dealer, but was beaten by Fuki Harukawa, who was angry at her for nearly killing a comrade. The commander also believes that Takina Inoue’s actions ruined the operation, and sends her to “Cafe Ricorico”. Takina Inoue then meets Chisoku Nishikiki, who has a cheerful personality unlike Licorice.
Takina Inoue is depressed about being left at “Cafe Ricorico” and wants to return to DA with a successful career. However, because Chisoku Nishikiki was only working “taking care of children,” “teaching Japanese,” and “delivering coffee,” Takina Inoue was puzzled by her job, which did not seem to be licorice. In the meantime, Chisoku Nishikiki and Takina Inoue are overwhelmed by suspicious men when they receive a request from a woman named Saori who is being stalked by a man.
Episode 2 Spoilers.
Episode 2 of the anime “Lycoris Recoil/Ricorico” begins with a scene of Walnut and Robota talking. Walnut, whose whereabouts have been identified, has requested “Cafe Lycorico” to escort him, and Chisoku Nishikiki and Takina Inoue are to escort Walnut. The two were therefore riding in a car driven by Walnut, but Robota’s hacking deprived them of control of the car.
Since the car was being tracked by Robota’s drone, Walnut cut the line and Takina Inoue destroyed the drone, thereby regaining control of the car. The three men also got out of the car and took refuge in a building, but they were attacked by Robota’s fellow men. Nishikiki Chisoku then overpowers the men while performing the divine feat of “dodging bullets”.
Chisoku Nishiki is an overwhelmingly strong licorice, but she had a desire not to kill people. Therefore, she treats a man who has been shot by Takina Inoue, and the man who is treated decides to abort the mission. In the meantime, Walnut, who was wearing a stuffed animal, was shot, but since the stuffed animal was “Mizuki Nakahara, who was wearing a bulletproof vest,” Walnut/Kurumi, who was made to look dead, was sheltered at “Cafe Ricorico”.
Episode 3 Spoilers.
In episode 3 of the “Lycoris Recoil/Ricorico” anime, Chisoku Nishikiki and Takina Inoue visit the DA.

However, Mika told her to go because it was the last day, and Takina Inoue, who heard the conversation, also decided to go to the DA to appeal directly to the commander for her reinstatement.
There was a rumor among the Licorice that Takina Inoue had almost killed one of their friends, and when she visited the DA, she was sarcastic. Also, Chisoku Nishikiki meets Fuki Harukawa again at the physical fitness test, and Fuki Harukawa asks Chisoku Nishikiki about Takina Inoue. Chisoku Nishikiki then asks the commander to “reinstate” Takina Inoue, but the commander refuses on the grounds that it is a violation of his orders.
Since the partnership between Takina Inoue and Fuki Harukawa was dissolved, “Otome Sakura” became Fuki Harukawa’s new partner. Otome Sakura provoked Takina Inoue, who was training with her, and when Chisoku Nishikiki heard the provocation, she became angry and they decided to face each other as a pair. However, Takina Inoue could not accept her situation and fled the scene.
Chisoku Nishikiki and Fuki Harukawa/Otome Sakura decided to face off, and Chisoku Nishikiki was able to overpower them both with her superhuman abilities. In the midst of all this, Takina Inoue, who had made up her mind to fight, entered the battle, beating up and shooting bullets at Fuki Harukawa.

Takina Inoue is not too keen on having fun on her day off, but when Chisoku Nishikiki helps her pick out some clothes, she is not too happy about it.

Also, Lycoris is composed of “an orphan girl protected by DA,” but since DA is not determined to be absolutely righteous, there seems to be a consideration that “DA has a back face.

Mika is the manager of Cafe Rico Rico and is 48 years old. She was a DA training instructor before the main story begins and is like a father figure to the orphaned Chisoku Nishiki. She has a calm and gentle personality, but because she is depicted as pondering about Shinji Yoshimatsu and the Allan Agency, it is thought that she knows the organization’s backstage face.

As of episode 8, Majima’s true identity is unknown, but since he and Chisoku Nishikiki are shown to share the same interests, it has been suggested that “Chisoku Nishikiki and Majima” are brother and sister.

Spoiler alert for Lycoris Recoil terms.
After learning about the synopsis spoilers, characters, and voice actors, we will introduce the terms of the anime “Lycoris Recoil/Ricorico”. Information about the coffee shop where Chisoku Nishiki and Takina Inoue work and why the girls are fighting will be explained with spoilers.
Terminology 1 DA
DA is a “security organization” that prevents terrorism and crime, and its official name is Direct Attack. As a national public organization, it cooperates with the government, but has more power than the police. In addition, the public does not know about the existence of the DA because information is falsified when incidents occur. The headquarters seems to be located far from the city center, where many licorice live.
Terminology 2 Coffee shop ricorico
Cafe Ricorico is a coffee shop where Chisoku Nishiki and Takina Inoue work. Although it is nominally a “branch of the DA,” it has the authority to operate independently and seems to regularly escort civilians. Although it receives support from the DA, it seems to be running in the red because it is run too appropriately.
Terminology 3 Licorice
Licorice is an active duty member of the DA and has a “Murderer’s License” which authorizes her to kill. The uniform that Licorice wears is an urban camouflage uniform, and we know that he cannot use a gun without the uniform. Licorice also seem to have ranks, with the highest rank, Nishiki Chisoku and Harukawa Fuki, wearing red uniforms.
In the Meiji era, there was a security organization called “Yatagarasu,” and “Higanbana,” which is under the organization, seems to be the current licorice. There was also a male organization called “Kimikagekusa,” but its details are currently unknown, leading some to believe that Licorice and Kimikagekusa are enemies. It is also believed that the terrorist Majima is a former member of Kimikagecho.
Terminology 4. Allan Agency
The Alan Agency is a support group operating under the name “Alan Adams” that finds gifted children from the poor and provides them with free assistance. However, since it was discovered that the Alan Agency was involved in the gun trade early in the story, it is considered that the Alan Agency has an underhanded face. The main character, Chisoku Nishiki, has a “machine heart” with the assistance of the Alan Agency and wanted to thank the people who saved him.
There seems to be a consideration that the Alan Agency and DA are connected in Lycoris Recoil; DA says that they are protecting an “orphan girl” and making her into Lycoris, but the consideration is that “the Alan Agency finds a gifted child and DA kills the parents and makes the girl an orphan”. It seems. Therefore, if DA and Alan Agency are evil organizations, there may be no such thing as licorice in the end.
Terminology 5 Radiata
Radiata is an AI installed in DA, whose scientific name is Lycoris radiata, which is the scientific name for higanbana. It is a fairly high-performance AI that can prevent hacking from the outside, but Kurumi easily hacks DA, which shows that he is a hacker not comparable to Robota.
