Lycoris Recoil | Episode Three: Chisato is the best.

Jumping back into the swing of things, I decided it was time for me to get started with Lycoris Recoil once again. You know what? I can definitely see Lycoris Recoil being one of the better anime for the season, I can feel it in my bones.

Furthermore, I can tell that Chisato is going to be one of those characters that will be remembered for a long time. I think this in part has to do with her personality. Chisato is like your big sister, she’s like the perfect character in my eyes. Understanding, wise, thoughtful, supportive, happy and badass.

Episode three was great in that regard because it was an episode where Chisato wanted to help Takina get back to the DA, but also was there to support her (Takina) when she (Chisato) knew that Takina wouldn’t get her wish. Chisato was the star of the episode because she understood what the DA meant to Takina, Chisato was there at one point too. However, unlike Takina, Chisato found something far better and more fulfilling than working for the DA.

I loved how Chisato helped Takina realize that there is more to life than just being a Lycoris working for the DA. That there is something more fulfilling and more to cherish. Takina may have lost something important to her, but through that lose she gained something even more valuable and meaningful in Chisato. To me that’s something that warms the heart — definitely.

While the first half of the episode showcased Chisato’s supportive side, the latter half showed Chisato’s badass side and it was dope. I especially love how Chisato is like this mystical figure because I’m under the impression that all the ‘newer’ Lycoris’ don’t know who she is or how skilled Chisato is as a Lycoris. So seeing her own the inexperienced without even trying was just epic.

The way Chisato goes about dodging the paintballs is pretty neat because it looks like she’s levitating, like the movement itself looks very unnatural. It makes you wonder how many projectiles she could dodge at any given time. We know she could dodge the bullets from an assault rifle like it’s nothing, so I assume that her ability to predict shot trajectory is god-like.

It also makes you wonder just how she’s able to dodge bullets with ease, they mention how its like a form of magic but I definitely think it’s much more than that. Like this is some next level superhuman like abilities and I personally want to see more.

Anyway, for sure, episode three was a great episode. I’m giving it an 8/10.

  1. That ability to dodge bullets by watching the direction of the barrel and the twitch of the trigger finger is not that uncommon in martial arts movies. Otherwise you’d have a lot of dead martial artists. I think the first time I ever saw it was in “Remo Williams – The Destroyer.”
