Lostorage Incited WIXOSS Episode 5

Review:

Lostorage Incited Wixoss kind of fell flat this week and the reason is because we don’t gain anything from this episode. Certainly we consolidate the fall out from Chi and Suzu’s reunion and Hanna and Suzu finally face off (an event which has been on the cards since episode 1) but we learn nothing new about the game or even the characters involved. While consolidation is all well and good, and setting things up for Hanna to finally get her 5 coins so we can find out what happens next, is interesting enough, there isn’t really anything in this episode that will make you sit up and take notice. Even the battle between Hanna and Suzu is pretty predictable given their relative personalities and what we’ve seen of them fighting so far. All and all a watchable but unexciting entry in a show that needs to find its direction fast now that we’ve got our characters firmly established.

Lostorage Incited WIXOSS is aviailable on Crunchyroll.

  1. Caught up with this one actually! Thinking about doing a first look at episodes 1-5 as well, but I digress. I actually disagree with you on this one. While the episode certainly was predictable, it did serve as a necessary bridge for where the show wants to be heading. Wixoss has always been more of a character drama than anything and this is really the only episode where the game has taken more of a backseat than not.

    I’ve found this to be the best entry in the Wixoss series so far so I’m eager to see exactly what this show has in mind. While the ending seems to be obvious at this point, I’m still convinced this one may be holding back some surprises for us (I just hope they can deliver).

    1. It’s always a gamble as to whether all the half hints and potential ideas will actual evolve into something by the end of the series. This is the kind of episode that would work fine as part of a marathon but as a stand alone was kind of dull.
