The action continues in Lycoris Recoil as the plot unfolds in every episode. From the mystery surrounding the Alan Institute and Chisato’s true identity comes to another puzzle left to be solved. In Episode 6, Chisato briefly mentioned it, but what is Lycori’s Recoil’s Lilybells?

Lycoris Recoil has yet to shed light on the Lilybells mentioned in Episode 6 by Chisato.

What is certain is that Lilybells were used to attack and infiltrate Chisato's hideout. This means that, like Majima and the rest of his goons, they are also after Chisato. However, for what reason?!

In Lycoris Recoil, Lilybells are the male counterparts of Lycoris agents.

Although little is known about Lilybells, it is certain that their skills and abilities are comparable to those of Lycoris agents. According to Chisato's statement in Episode 6, they are the same as Lycoris.

She doesn't know much about them, despite the fact that they have attempted to attack her hideout in the past. They are, however, more skilled and dangerous than the men sent by Robota to kill Chisato.

Since Chisato easily dispatched Robota's men, it is safe to assume that Lilybells are better trained in eliminating their targets. However, their combat ability and level are currently unknown.

Because Lilybells are male agents, it is assumed that they receive the same treatment and training as Lycoris. They are not only trained in combat but also in gun shooting and self-defense.

No one knows what the Lilybells are as of this writing. Their department is unknown, as are their agents. What is certain is that as the anime progresses, more information about them will be revealed.

In the organization chart shared by Robota in Episode 6, it is briefly shown that Lily of the Valley, along with Spider Lily and Hollyhock, is one of the branches of the Yatagarasu, also known as the Three-Legged Crow organization.

According to Robota's spiel, the Spider Lily is an assassination squad formed prior to the establishment of the Meiji Government. They are currently known as Lycoris based on the plant's scientific name.

Lily of the Valley, on the other hand, is known as Lilybells due to the plant's scientific name. As a result, the two branches of Yatagarasu are related.

It's also worth noting that Lycoris Recoil has a third branch that has yet to appear. The third branch is called "hollyhock," which is also the name of a plant.

According to Robota's organizational chart, the Spider Lily branch adheres to the doctrine of cleaning up silently, whereas the Lily of the Valley adheres to the doctrine of terminating by force.

The Hollyhock branch, on the other hand, is more of a kagemusha, or political ruse.

In any case, the Yatagarasu, or Three-Legged Crow, is known in Japan to represent a divine intervention in everyday life.

According to legend, the crow is a symbol of rebirth and rejuvenation because it cleans up after battles.

As of this writing, it is unknown whether Majima is part of the Lilybells in Lycoris Recoil.

However, there is a lot of speculation that Majima was part of the branch before going rogue.

With his skills and abilities, Majima can spar with Chisato. His strength relies on his ability to think rationally, allowing him to maximize his skills and abilities.

It would not be surprising if Majima was a former Lilybells member. With all of his determination to destroy the DA and Chisato, it is only a matter of time before more information about him is revealed.

For the time being, the Lilybells are viewed as a future implication for Chisato and the others.

Knowing that they frequently target Chisato, it is safe to assume that they are yet another troublesome group of people that Chisato and Takina will have to deal with soon.
