Rhapsody of petals fluttering on the front line.
Earth in the near future.
Humanity is on the verge of ruin due to the emergence of a mysterious being called "Huge".
The whole world is united in a single mission against the Huge, and succeeds in developing decisive battle arms called "CHARM", which brings together the power of science and magic.
The "Garden", an institution for training the girls who would become its users, the "Lily", was established in various parts of the world.
Riri Hitotsuyanagi, who was accepted as a substitute to Yurigaoka Girls Academy, one of the most prestigious schools in the Gardens, takes her first steps as a Lily to fight for the existence of humankind.
Riri took the entrance exam for this academy in pursuit of Yuyu Shirai, who had once saved her from a tight spot, and on her first day at school she has a chance encounter with Yuyu, but there is something different about her from the previous Yuyu.
The story of these girls, fighting fleetingly but beautifully, begins to blossom...
This is a TV animation work produced as part of the media mix project for the doll series Assault Lily, which began in 2013. Animation production is done by Shaft, known for Puella Magi Madoka Magica and other works.
Originally scheduled to be broadcast from July 2020, but postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic; broadcast began in October 2020.
Broadcast stations include TBS, RKB Mainichi Broadcasting, Sun TV, KBS Kyoto, TV Shin Hiroshima, TV Aichi and others, as well as BS-TBS and CS TBS Channel 1.
The streaming service was exclusively available on Amazon Prime Video for unlimited streaming, and rental streaming began sequentially on each streaming service (the exclusive release was later lifted, and as of 2022, the unlimited streaming service is available on each streaming service).
The director and series composition is by Shouji Saeki, known for directing "Wish Upon the Pleiades". Director Saeki is originally from GAINAX, but was offered the job by Shaft because he had been the main director of the GAINAX x SHAFT production "Mahoromatic".
Character design is by Mieko Hosoi. The original creator, Obanazawa, was a fan of the anime "Aiura" and approached Hosoi, who worked on the character design for the work.
This is the first Shaft-produced TV animation in 14 years, since the 2006 broadcast of "REC", without Akiyuki Shinbo, a leading creator of Shaft, being involved in the production in any way (director, general director, supervisor, animation supervisor, etc.).
In addition, the app game "Assault Lily Last Bullet", released on 20 January 2021, is linked to this work and shares a world setting among the multiple world settings (story setting differences between the series) of the Assault Lily Project. The story in Last Bullet is developed as a timeline after the final episode of the anime series.
For this reason, the first episode of the anime is shown in full on the initial download screen in the application.
