Funimation Delays Assault Lily Bouquet Anime's Streaming Schedule to Fridays
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
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).
