selector infected WIXOSS // First Impressions

Screenshot - 4_30_2014 , 3_32_04 PMOK, I got some weeks until my unofficially official cutoff date for new anime. Let’s pick up one more. How about uh… this one? CARD GAMES ON (Fill in the blank)!!

selector infected WIXOSS is a J.C. Staff original based on the Takara Tomy collectible card game. The card battle game WIXOSS is highly popular amongst high school students, mostly females. Among WIXOSS cards are LRIG cards that each possess a spirit that only a select few females known as Selectors can hear their voices. When Ruko Kominato obtains her own WIXOSS deck with a LRIG, she ends up being thrown into battles with other Selectors to have their wishes comes true and come one step closer to becoming an Eternal Girl. And if a Selector lose three times, they’re locked out of the game forever.

I learned from experience (read: Madoka Magica) that there is a high price to pay to make miracles happen. Two episodes in, it seems to me that it has the potential to be alot more than just a commercial for card games. However, I get the feeling that there’s more to the price than just losing the right to be a Selector. Let’s hope it turns out to be a better dark magical girl fantasy than Day Break Illusion.
