FUNimation Entertainment has announced that it will begin simulcasting the Assault Lily Bouquet television anime on October 1, 2020 as part of the Fall 2020 season.
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 story of the anime is described as:
On Earth in the near future, humanity faced imminent destruction from mysterious giant creatures known as “Huge.” The entire world unites against the Huge, and successfully develops weaponry known as “CHARM” (Counter Huge Arms) by combining science and magic. CHARM exhibits high rates of synchronization with teenaged girls, and the girls who use CHARM are viewed as heroes called “Lilies.” Throughout the world, “Garden” military academies are established to train Lilies to face the Huge and to serve as bases to protect and guide people. This is a story about fighting girls who aim to become Lilies at one such Garden.
Assault Lily Bouquet was originally scheduled to premiere in July 2020. However, the premiere was delayed to October 2020 to prioritize the safety of its cast and staff during the COVID-19 pandemic.
