Lostorage Incited WIXOSS Episode 9

Review:

We now have a clear link back to the other installments in the WIXOSS franchise but they’ve done this in a way that even those with limited familiarity will still be fine to follow the plot. Also, we finally find out what happens when you have all five golden coins. This episode is intense. From Chinatsu ignoring warnings and continuing to bull-headedly believe that she’s now free and choosing her own path, to the LRIGs and the various games they are playing, to the object lesson of what some LRIGs think of being human, to the final battle and reveal, there is so much going on and parts of this episode get dark. It was a job to watch but definitely not light viewing. This season of WIXOSS is delivering a fairly solid emotional experience though the question of whether they can wrap up their story in a satisfactory manner still remains.

Lostorage Incited WIXOSS is available on Crunchyroll.

    1. I dont’ know, she’s been pretty stubbornly moronic since about episode 5. I somehow doubt she’s getting an epiphany without someone literally dying.

      1. That’s true. The flags are waving for Shou, then. But he seems to know what he’s doing when he fights so I don’t know. Susuzko is even more unlikely. Hmm.

      2. She’s probably still trying to deny that she cares about Suzuko, anyways. Chinatsu’s motivation still seems a little hazy to me. She just seems to have wanted to act like a horrible person and she’s justifying her current actions as this being her true self. It’s not just me, right?

        1. Nope, that’s how I read her too. At first I felt she was trying to break out of her shell but she’s mostly just used this as an excuse to act horribly. Any sympathy I felt for her as a character died quite awhile ago.

    1. WIXOSS has been pretty good. It isn’t a must watch but I generally like fairly dark anime and this one has been pretty decent at making all of its characters miserable. If it manages to pull all this together for the end it would be a very good anime but until we know what the final reveals are I’m still fence sitting on that one.

I'd love to know what you think.
