Now if you are not familiar with Lycoris Recoil, you should. Know the story's concept was crafted by Spider Lily and Asaura. It follows two girls who work as Lycoris agents in Japan to perform everything from espionage to assassinations. When hotshot Takina Inoue is sanctioned by her bosses after a mistake on the job, she is sent to work under one of the best Lycoris agents in history, Chisato Nishikigi. The pair take deadly jobs at night while working cover jobs in a cafe by day where their clashing personalities are impossible to ignore. But as the pair continue working together, Takina and Chisato find themselves growing closer.
