Lycoris Recoil Episode 8 Chisato Handstand

As the show continues to be one of the surprise hits of the Summer 2022 season, Lycoris Recoil Episode 8 had a moment featuring Chisato in a revealing pose that went viral online.

On Twitter, a tweet with a picture of Chisato doing a handstand gained got thousands of likes and a good number of retweets.

Wondering what’s the context? In Lycoris Recoil episode 8, Chisato and Takina helped the community by participating in a Halloween event for kids, as well as assisting in a Japanese language class.

During that class, Chisato did a handstand that was quite revealing for the anime’s standards.

The specific tweet isn’t a simple screenshot from the anime though as it’s an image that’s seemingly stitched from multiple frames.

What made this moment go viral online is partly because of how it showed off Chisato’s legs – a rare moment given the show doesn’t have much if any fan service.

In fact, the episode didn’t even show Chisato’s underwear, adding to how the show has a refreshing lack of fan service; other shows would’ve probably made the scene even more revealing.

While it wasn’t explicitly shown, it’s fair to say that Chisato wasn’t wearing the men’s style boxers that she tried on during a recent episode.

Lycoris Recoil is an original anime series by A-1 Pictures that’s directed by Shingo Adachi and written by Asaura.

The series is set in an alternate version of Japan where the peace is kept by “Lycoris” – an all-female group of assassins and spies who eliminate criminals and terrorists without the general population knowing.

Its story follows Takina, a Lycoris agent who is sanctioned for disobeying orders. As a result, she is assigned to work under agent Chisato who works in an agency branch that’s disguised as a café.

While Chisato might not seem like an expert agent, she is one of the best out there.

Takina is a serious agent while Chisato is more laid back and carefree. Despite this, Takina must get along with Chisato if she wants to get her old position back.

New episodes of Lycoris Recoil are released every week on Crunchyroll.
