Assault Lily Geek Impulse

Assault Lily is based on the range of 1/12-scale dolls and figurines created by Azone International and acus in 2013. The project also inspired two novels—Assault Lily: Ichiryuutai, Shutsugeki Shimasu! and Assault Lily Arms in June 2015 and July 2017, respectively.


During the “Assault Lily: Nice to meet you” exchange party event on Sunday, it was announced that the multimedia project is getting a TV anime produced by Shaft. Titled Assault Lily Bouquet, the series will be directed by Shouji Saeki (Houkago no Pleiades, Medaka Box) and Mieko Hosoi (Aiura) will design characters for animation.

Project synopsis

In the near future, humanity faces imminent destruction from mysterious creatures known as “Huge.” The world wages war against the Huge, and develops the anti-weapon “CHARM” (Counter Huge Arms) by combining science and magic. CHARM works more effectively when used by teenage girls, and those who use the weapons are revered as “Lilies.” The Lilies are trained at military academies called “Gardens,” which also serve as bases to protect and advise people. This is a story about girls who aim to become Lilies so they can protect Earth.

As part of the project, a stage play by Bushiroad will feature actresses who are also voicing the characters. Assault Lily: League of Guardian will take place at Tokyo’s Shinjuku Face venue from January 9 to January 15.

A project involving Shaft and Bushiroad? That’s enough reason to get me hyped! That visual really makes it look like a bootleg Madoka rip-off, though. Not that it’s a bad thing.
