Plot

Allison & Lillia's story covers the story from the Allison light novels for the first half of the series, and switches to the story from the Lillia and Treize light novels for the second half. Allison & Lillia is set in a world with one continent split down the middle from north-south by the towering Central Mountains, and the vast Lutoni River. Due to the geography, two cultures developed on either side of the divide. The eastern region is formally known as the Roxcheanuk Confederation, though more commonly known as Roxche (ロクシェ Rokushe ?). The entire region comprises sixteen countries which all speak a common language. The western region is formally known as the United Kingdom of Bezel Iltoa, though better known as Sou Beil (スー・ベー・イル Sū Bē Iru ?). This region comprises the two kingdoms of Bezel and Iltoa which both serve to bring together a small number of countries under the same common language as with that of the eastern region. There are very few blond-haired people in Sou Beil. At the time the story begins, it is year 3287 on the fictional universe's World Calendar during summer. By this time, the two regions have been at war on and off for most of history, with the most recent hostilities breaking out some thirty-five years prior to the start of the series. An armistice has been in effect for the past thirty years, with only one major conflict during this time, creating a buffer zone thirty kilometers on either side of the river. The industry and technology of the world are roughly equivalent to the 1930s.

The first half of the story centers around Allison Whittington, a young blonde pilot in the Roxche Air Force who has experience with biplanes. She comes to visit her good friend Wil Schultz (short for Wilhelm, so pronounced Vill) during his summer vacation at Rowe Sneyum Senior School's dormitory after being away for six months. Wil, who resides in Roxche, enjoys reading books, has a photographic memory, and is a good marksman. The two get involved in three different adventures over a period of a year where they meet new people and form important bonds.

The second half of the story starts about fifteen years after the conclusion of the first half. The story centers around Lilliane Schultz, or Lillia for short, the daughter of Allison and Wil. Wil has in this time assumed a new identity, Travas, under the Sou Beil military, though still dates Allison. Lillia's companion is her childhood friend Treize, son of Carr Benedict and Fiona; Treize has a twin sister named Merielle. Lillia's and Treize's adventure together begins during her summer vacation from school.

Characters

Allison Whittington (アリソン・ウィッティングトン Arison Wittinguton ?)
Voiced by: Nana Mizuki (young), Hōko Kuwashima (adult)
The main female protagonist of the series' first part. Pilot of the Roxche air force and daughter of a military officer who died during the war, she was raised in an orphanage along with Wil. An impulsive, daring and somewhat tomboyish girl (not to mention her well-above average gymnastics) who has a talent for getting herself in trouble. Though being in the military, she is not above bending the rules (and the occasional mischief) to help others, and get things done. Wilhelm becomes the receiving end of her bad sleeping habits on a few occasions when they have to share a single bed out of circumstance. She also gets into jealousy fits when she sees how close how Benedict and Fiona are to each other, while on her end, she tries so hard to do the same with Wilhelm to no avail. In the second half of the story, Allison gives birth to Lillia with Wil whose name has been changed due to becoming a secret agent. She still dates Wil, but has kept his true identity a secret from Lillia.
Wilhelm Schultz (ヴィルヘルム・シュルツ Viruherumu Shurutsu ?)
Voiced by: Motoko Kumai
Allison's childhood friend, and the second protagonist of the series' first part. A scholar who has the ability to memorize things instantly and also is skilled at firearms. Wil does not share Allison's sense for adventure, but is usually dragged along by her. While Allison is physically more apt and spontaneous than he is, Wilhelm brings in the level-headedness and wits during their adventures.
Carr Benedict (カー・ベネディクト Kā Benedikuto ?)
Voiced by: Kōichi Yamadera
A pilot in the Sou Beil air force who became friends with Allison and Wil, and always ready to help them when needed. He has a bad, but harmless habit of trying to hit on any girl that he finds attractive (that is, until he meets Fiona).
Fiona (フィオナ ?)
Voiced by: Mamiko Noto
The sole survivor of the small country of Ikstova's royal family, who decided to leave her secluded life after meeting Allison, Wil and Benedict. She has a great passion for photography.
Corazón Muto (コラソン・ムート Korason Mūto ?)
Voiced by: Toshiko Fujita
The old woman at Future House who took care of orphaned children in Roxche, including Wil and Allison. Originally from Sou Beil, her humanitarian efforts on the other side of the river earned her the scorn of her compatriots. As a result of her care, both Allison and Wil show compassion for both sides in the conflict, and can speak the language of Sou Beil.
Lillia (リリア Riria ?)
Voiced by: Nana Mizuki
The main female protagonist of the series' second part. She is Allison's and Wil's daughter. She is shy of being called by her full name: Lilliane Acacia Corazón Whittington Schultz. She is, as her mother mutters in a monologue, as dense as Wilhelm when it comes to romance.
Treize (トレイズ Toreizu ?)
Voiced by: Hiroyuki Yoshino
Son, and one of the fraternal twin children of Carr Benedict and Fiona, and Lillia's closest friend. Looks to form a relationship with Lillia similar to that which Allison and Wil had in their younger days. Being a son of Fiona, he is also the Prince of Ikstova, though Lillia is unaware of this and only sees him as a childhood friend. He is worldly and does not really care for his royal heritage, and wishes that he can be like a normal civilian, and not be a subject to political favors among royal families.
Merielle (メリエル Merieru ?)
Voiced by: Chiwa Saitō
Daughter of Carr Benedict and Fiona, and Treize's fraternal twin sister, she is the official heir to the throne of Ikstova. Has a pushy and headstrong personality similar to Allison, which she shows even in front of her own parents. She has a sharp tooth at the corner of her mouth that stands out when she talks.
Travas (トラヴァス Toravasu ?)
Voiced by: Toshiyuki Morikawa
The adopted son of Radia, Travas is a Major in the Sou Beil armed forces, stationed in Roxche as a diplomatic liaison. He is involved in a relationship with Allison, who addressed him as her boyfriend. Travas is, in fact, Wilhelm Schultz. He knows of Treize's royal heritage and even greeted him as "Your Highness" behind Lillia's back.

Production

The animated television series Allison & Lillia is directed by Masayoshi Nishida, and produced by Madhouse in collaboration with Tezuka Productions, along with Geneon which is in charge of music. The anime shares its title as a combination with the light novel series Allison, and Lillia and Treize, which the anime is based on. The series started airing on April 3, 2008 on NHK in Japan, and ran for twenty-six episodes.

Theme songs

Two pieces of theme music are used for the anime; one opening theme, one ending theme. The opening theme is "Tameiki no Hashi" (溜め息の橋 ?) by the Kuricorder Quartet and Shione Yukawa, and the ending theme is "Sayonara no Omajinai" (サヨナラのおまじない ?) by the Kuricorder Quartet and Sō Matsumoto. Both singles for the two themes were released by Geneon on June 25, 2008.[1] That same day, an image song album will be released containing short audio dramas and character songs sung by Nana Mizuki and Motoko Kumai who play Allison and Wil in the anime.[1]
