Lycoris Recoil made headlines due to its unique original story and chaotic girl action that defied the rules of anime. Everyone thought Chisato's story had ended after the first season, but the good news is that the second season has been greenlit! Here’s everything we know so far about Lycoris Recoil Season 2!

What to Expect From Lycoris Recoil Season 2
The first season of Lycoris Recoil ended on a high note with Chisato's clash with Majima on top of the Enkuboku tower. Chisato wants to maintain the status quo, whereas Majima wants to restore Japan's natural balance.
It was the highlight of the first season of Lycoris Recoil, and it was fascinating to see two kindred spirits share the kind of dynamic that isn't usually seen between protagonists and antagonists.
With the announcement of Lycoris Recoil Season 2, fans can expect to see more of Chisato, Takina, and the others in Lyco-Reco Café for more action.
Knowing that the heavily bandaged Majima is still alive, that there are still a lot of guns in Tokyo, and that the DA and Radiata are still around, Lycoris Recoil Season 2 has more stories to tell.
While we are pleased to see Takina and Chisato living their lives freely, Lycoris Recoil Season 2 has the potential to provide more character development for them to grow.
Not to mention, their dynamic and relationship with each other may lead to them becoming a couple rather than just ship teasing.
Lycoris Recoil Season 2 is expected to be more visually impressive than Season 1, with smooth-flowing fight sequences, well-written characters, and an engaging narrative.

Because Lycoris Recoil is an original anime with no material to adapt, the second season could arrive in late 2024 or early 2025, but take this with a grain of salt.
