Unlike the show’s badass squad of female agents, it’s no secret that Lycoris Recoil is one of the biggest hits of the Summer 2022 anime season. And now it’s come to light that the series’ first Blu-ray volume, containing episodes 1-3 at 8,800 yen, that went on sale on September 21 in Japan went on to sell approximately 21,000 copies in its first week — the highest of any TV anime in its first week for the whole year, according to Oricon.


The limited-edition volume is due to be released on October 3; the cover is pictured below.
