Instead of taking a conventional approach towards the genre, ‘Assault Lily: Bouquet’ brings in fascinating world-building and magic elements to its fore and slowly captures you with its action-filled drama. Not to mention, Studio Shaft (‘Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica‘, ‘Monogatari‘) is animating it. So we can rest assured that it is in safe hands.

Assault Lily: Bouquet Spoilers
‘Assualt Lily: Bouquet’ is set in the near future. The world is at the brink of destruction, and humanity is almost extinct. All of this because creatures, known as “Huge,” have taken over. As the name suggests, Huge are vicious beasts that destroy anything or anyone who crosses their path. So in an attempt to fight back, humans develop a superior weapon called “CHARM” (Counter Huge Arms). CHARM is nothing but a complex combination of science and magic. When used by teenage girls, the weapon reaches its full potential and becomes destructive enough to kill the Huge.
The young teenage girls who use the weapon against the monsters are called Lilies. These Lilies go through intense training at the “Gardens,” which are special academies designed not only for training but also for protecting helpless people. ‘Assualt Lily: Bouquet’ is not just about one Lily but about all the Lillies out there who are determined to save their world.
