About Assault Lily
The Assault Lily Project is a mixed-media franchise. It is based on action dolls figures of a 1/12th scale. These action figures were conceived by the doll maker Azone International and the ACUS creative group in 2013.
The anime will occur in the near future where humanity is threatened by mysterious creatures known as “Huge.”
In an attempt to train a unit against these creatures, the government creates specialized military academies known as “Gardens” that train girls known as “Lilies.”
Lilies wield weapons made from a combination of science and magic called CHARM ( Counter Juge Arms). These CHARM wilding girls protect the Earth from this mysterious threat.
