Funimation Delays Assault Lily Bouquet Anime's Streaming Schedule to Fridays

posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda

Funimation announced on Tuesday that its weekly stream of new episodes of the Assault Lily Bouquet anime will switch to a new schedule on Fridays at 9:00 a.m. EDT.

Funimation's stream of last week's episode was similarly delayed to Friday due to a delay in delivery of materials to Funimation.

The anime premiered on October 1. The anime previously delayed its premiere date to October to prioritize the safety of its cast and staff during the new coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic. The anime was originally slated to premiere in July.

The Assault Lily Project is a mixed-media franchise based on 1/12-scale action doll figures conceived by the doll maker AZONE International and the creative group acus in 2013. The tagline on the anime's website reads, "A rhapsody of petals dancing on the frontline." The theme of the project centers around battles waged by beautiful girls with weapons.

The franchise's stage play cast members are reprising their roles in the anime.

Shouji Saeki (He Is My Master, Mahoromatic: Summer Special, Medaka Box) is directing the anime at SHAFT, with Mieko Hosoi (Aiura, Grimgar, Ashes and Illusions, Shōwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjū) as the character designer. Keita Nagahara is the assistant director. Kazuya Shiotsuki (Gourmet Girl Graffiti) is the sub-character designer, and is also serving as chief animation director alongside Sōta Suwa (Sakura Quest, Karakai Jōzu no Takagi-san 2).

RAISE A SUILEN are performing the anime's opening theme song "Sacred world," and Hikaru Akao is performing the ending theme song "Edel Lilie" as her character.
