Lycoris Recoil Scriptwriter Gets Harassed For Not Writing Yuri Relationship

Published on September 28th, 2022

Lycoris Recoil is an original anime series animated by A-1 Pictures. The anime tells the story of a secret organization that employs orphan girls to fight against any kind of threats that want to destroy the peace of Tokyo, Japan.

Since the start of the series, the two main characters, Chisato Nishikigi and Takina Inoue have been shipped together by fans. Many anime fans expected the series to go the “yuri route” at the finale, where a clear romantic relationship between the two will be shown, but that wasn’t the case. Some frustrated fans took to the Twitter account of the Lycoris Recoil screenwriter to express their “feelings.”

Twitter user “Baleygr (@Baleygr086) ” pointed out that some fans were harassing the production staff of the original anime studio A-1 Pictures, Lycoris Recoil, specifically the scriptwriter of the show, @kanedanova, Kanbayashi who wrote the script of episodes 4, 8, 9, 11, 12, and 13.

Toxicity and acts of harassment over any staff involved in the production of a series is entirely uncalled for. In the case of LycoReco, the obvious behavior towards Kanbayashi who handled the script for almost half of the series over sullied yuribait expectations is disturbing.

The scriptwriter tweeted to thank all the fans who watched the show. However, the replies turned to nasty comments, and due to harassment, Kanbayashi had to disable the comments on the Tweet.

Here are some of the replies criticizing the scriptwriter for their writing:

So what do you think of Takina? Is she really a heroine in your opinion?Do you think Majima is more important than Takina?If that’s what you think, then don’t write any scripts because you don’t even know who the main character is.

Takina hurts and been beaten many times but get nothing from Chisato whether in words or affection,episode 4&9 are perfect,but why the episode 13 so bad in affection handling,i hope i can see Takina & Chisato’s relationship has a substantical change in season 2,will it come true?

It seems Takina killed your mother. Then I recommend you to let Chisato and Majima get married since Majima is your father. This will be a perfect solution cuz you can have a mother and Chisato cares more about Majima than Takina.

u successfully fool those who wanna watch the yuri from lycoris recoil, and please let 千束 and 真岛 get married next season. don’t abuse thanks.don’t abuse takina thx

Just let LYCO_RECO go. I don’t want to see you anymore

I have to say that ur script is awful. Almost every characters in the last four episodes are confusing. What makes me feel so angry is that as an essential character, takina seems have nothing to do with the plot and her indeed contributions for chisato is always being ignored.

Apart from that, why are you creating such incidents about majima and chisato? Don’t u know that the true emotion line should be about chisato and takina? Though it’s rude to say but I have to admit that the action between majima and chisato in the last ep make me want to vomit.

You better think about what the audience wants more. The creator should set up the right values for the audience instead of making a bad guy play the leading role.

You are a despicable liar and failed screenwriter.

What’s more worrying is that some of these comments have gotten hundreds of likes which means that many Lycoris Recoil fans also feel the same way. Even if someone doesn’t like the ending, this doesn’t give them the authority to harass someone.

Crunchyroll describes the Lycoris Recoil anime series as follows:

For these peaceful days――there’s a secret behind it all. A secret organization that prevents crimes: “DA – Direct Attack”. And their group of all-girl agents: “Lycoris”. This peaceful everyday life is all thanks to these young girls. The elite Chisato Nishikigi is the strongest Lycoris agent of all time. Alongside is Takina Inoue, the talented but mysterious Lycoris. They work together at one of its branches–Café LycoReco. Here, the orders this café takes range from coffee and sweets to childcare, shopping, teaching Japanese to foreign students, etc. It’s mostly tasks unbefitting of Lycoris. The free-spirited and optimistic pacifist, Chisato. And the cool-headed and efficient Takina. The chaotic everyday lives of this mismatched duo begin

      1. The world’s already gone batshit insane and now people asking for this? 2012 should’ve happened.

    1. I’m seriously impressed how people find it perfectly normal to passive-aggressively react to someone just because they say they’re happy with an ending they didn’t like.

    2. I’m SUPER happy with the way the relationship blossomed into a wholesome “sisterhood” between the two MC’s. People on the LGBTQ spectrum who harass artists who don’t conform to their views is chilling. The story itself is one of the most beautiful anime tales in existence.

  1. I watch anime for it’s was anime. I like Shounen, Yuri, fight, Mecha and anything as long it’s was good in my heart. Lycoris is a amazing anime for original novel. Why you want Yuri route so much when we has good anime to watch this season? Of course I also want Yuri route also but this also good. I hope we will has game for Lycoris and Yuri route at the game.

  2. Hey I also wanted takina and Chisato to end up together tbh but it’s not that deep I feel like it had an amazing ending when Chisato revealed her heart disease I just said that I was satisfied with any ending as long as Chisato is alive

  3. Ngl the anime is good I’ve only seen up to EP 2 yuri or not I by far like it although ngl some crumbs can be misleading towards yuri.

  4. This anime is great entertainment. There is no need to change anything. The writers are good and them being harassed is unfair. Those people who want to decide the story for themselves should create their own anime and not harass the creators of LycoReco. Peace.

  5. I personally don’t think Lycoris Recoil needed a Yuri relationship in it’s script. The emotions are delivered expertly and Chisato and Takina’s friendship and trust is genuine. Those pining for a romance between the two are just immature and dissatisfied folks who simply get what they wanted, while ignoring all the other good things about the anime. Nobody has any right to harass or insult the screenwriter who put hard work into this series and produced an overall good show.
    People need to stop pushing their LGBTQ desires and fantasies into every piece of media out there. Let it be.

    1. Well said. It is bone chilling when the audience harasses the artist to pressure them to write THEIR story, rather than what the artist chooses to express. These episodes were chef’s kiss perfect.

  6. Typical anime fandom. Thinking they know the characters better than the writers, and as usual, thinking they somehow own the intellectual property themselves. These people haven’t met the word intellectual.

  7. Twitter users going insane over a creator’s choices on their own creations differing from the fan choices? Great…

  8. It was implied and that’s already great, doujin works are there for that kind of stuff anyway, though it would’ve been so much better if it was official

  9. The comments here are really disgusting. So you yuri haters are fine with yuri fans being treated like fools forever and that yuri should always be nothing more than just a phase or friendship. Japan has been treating yuri as a laughing stock for decades using the likes of Hibike Euphonium, Little Witch Academia, Amanchu, Cross Ange, Idolmaster, and Uma Musume. I don’t blame the people who harassed that yuribait-writing id*ot. It’s about damn time they do something about the negative treatment towards yuri. Lycoris Recoil should have been yuri but that writer just doesn’t have the balls to do it.

  10. I like a good Yuri story but this anime didnt need to have Yuri involved. The story was perfectly fine without it. Frankly the Yuri would have simply been
    superfluous.
