Every cafe has its fun staff members and Riko Riko Cafe of the upcoming TV anime Lycoris Recoil is no different. Today, the newest trailer was released for the original series directed by Shingo Adachi (Sword Art Online anime character designer) introducing us to the energetic Chisato Nishikigi, who runs the signboard for the cafe with unusual requests.
This is the first of four character trailers for Lycoris Recoil, which is set to release one every week for the next three weeks, making four character trailers including Nishikigi’s.
Set in Tokyo at the Riko Riko Cafe, Lycoris Recoil follows the daily adventures of energetic signboard girl Chisato Nishikigi and coolheaded newcomer Takina Inoue as they deal with orders not just for ordinary things like coffee, sweets, and night-time pick-up and delivery, but also for more eccentric requests such as zombie extermination and dealing with giant monsters.
