The Lycoris Recoil anime has released a 30-second “OPver” commercial, providing a preview of the opening song “ALIVE” by ClariS. More of the show’s action genre elements are also shown.

Initially advertised as a mainly lighthearted show with hints of action and otherworldly elements, Lycoris Recoil follows a group of girls who are Lycoris, agents of the DA (Direct Attack) organization. Their mission is to maintain peace by preventing crimes before they have begun, but the LICORICO cafe that is one of the DA’s branches also takes on tasks like taking care of children and teaching Japanese to foreigners.
