If you haven't watched the previous three seasons of this franchise, I'd strongly suggest this isn't the place to start. That said, if you've been onboard through Selector Infected WIXOSS up until now, you will probably quite enjoy the latest round of Selector Battles. Review: Where many continuing series go wrong is they end up … Continue reading Lostorage Conflated Wixoss Series Review: The Final End of the Battles?
Welcome to the Best of Spring 2018 and while we might say there were slightly leaner pickings this time around, as always it has been fun following the shows with others in the blogosphere and discussing from week to week. Whether that is the discussions around Wixoss, the laughing at Devils' Line, or just being … Continue reading Here It Is! The Results of the Best of Spring 2018 Reader Poll!
While I'm not entirely convinced about this as an episode, I am happy that this franchise wrapped itself up. While they might force a continuation, there's no sense that the story is unresolved when this episode closes. Kiyoi has made it to the room of white windows finally and is determined to end the battles, … Continue reading Lostorage Conflated Wixoss Episode 12: A Solid Conclusion
We finally get the showdowns and now we're opening the door. The question becomes, what next? There's not a lot to say about this episode. All of the characters behave exactly as you would expect given the journey to this point. I did find it interesting how Suzuko ended up bowing out given there's been … Continue reading Lostorage Conflated Wixoss Episode 11: The End of The Battles?
While there's nothing wrong with this episode, it all feels very much like we're just stretching things out until the final with two aborted battles here. If I'm honest, I kind of zoned out during this episode for a number of reasons, but the main one is that for the first time I kind of … Continue reading Lostorage Conflated Wixoss Episode 10: Battle, Battle, Battle
We've finally managed to have the girls from the first two seasons make contact with the girls from season 3. The question now becomes, what happens next? It is episodes like this that prove you don't need to be unpredictable to be interesting. These two groups were always going to converge and the set up … Continue reading Lostorage Conflated Wixoss Episode 9: When Worlds Collide
There are fewer things more unfair than when someone keeps moving the finishing line of a race, but that is exactly what the girls in Wixoss find themselves facing in this round of Selector Battles. This episode got dark, and I'm not just talking about the tone. Other than the battle itself every scene this … Continue reading Lostorage Conflated Wixoss Episode 8: The Condition To Win
Season 1 and 2 veterans continue their fight against Layla while season 3 veterans plus Kiyoi continue to try to figure out the nature of the new game this week in Lostorage Conflated Wixoss. I'm really looking forward to these two groups meeting. The game continues with more and more evidence that it isn't so … Continue reading Lostorage Conflated Wixoss Episode 7: It’s Going To Be Fun When These Groups Converge
Carnival has had things going all their way since this anime returned and now we see they have rule breaking abilities. I have to wonder how they could possibly be defeated given everything seems to be in their favour this time around. I guess the more difficult they are the greater the triumph when they … Continue reading Lostorage Conflated Wixoss Episode 6: It’s Totally Unfair, And That’s The Way It Is
As rule after rule seems to be overturned, Wixoss is making it hard to understand the game at all at this point as it seems characters do what they wish. While this anime has never been amazing at explaining the game's rules, this is the first time it has felt like it is actively ignoring … Continue reading Lostorage Conflated Wixoss Episode 5: The Rules Are Breaking
