Lostorage Incited WIXOSS Episode 6

Review:

I’m thinking the combination of the Bookmaker and Chinatsu is going to be an absolute recipe for disaster in Lostorage Incited WIXOSS; the truly great to watch kind of disaster. While there is still no end game in sight for the actual game, the relationship between Suzuku and Chinatsu has definitely hit a critical turning point. Chi isn’t just rejecting her friendship anymore, she is openly wanting to overwrite anything and everything connected to it. As justification for this, she’s re-examining her childhood memories and tainting them with her current self-loathing. While she might have had ulterior motives as a child, it kind of seems like she’s definitely allowing her current emotional state to overshadow anything that was ever any good about her friendship. We also get the interesting idea that maybe changing a memory could change the world but given this thought is floated from a child who has lost her mother it seems more likely that this is wishful thinking that is destined to be shattered. All and all, this show continues to deliver a nice emotional roller coaster even while the plot kind of stands still and waits for the character to all get to the appropriate level of desperate before progressing.

Lostorage Incited WIXOSS is available on Crunchyroll.

  1. I also thought it was interesting that they brought in some more rules in this episode too. For example, characters can bet more than 1 coin each game and the “interruption” mechanic from previous seasons is still in place. Good episode in my book.

    1. It would have been nice to have seen the interruption on a lesser fight first though before using it as a get-out-of-jail free card for Suzuko because she got herself cornered.

      1. I can see what you mean but even still the interruption was totally necessary here. Suzuko needed to see how serious Chinatsu is about achieving her goal. In addition to this, it gives motivation for Suzuko to start taking the game more seriously.

I'd love to know what you think.
