There are a lot of magical girl anime out there and some amazing protagonists that get shimmering transformations and attack sequences. However in this post I want to look at some of the supporting characters who may or may not also be magical girls but are certainly not granted main-character plot immunity. These are memorable characters who really help elevate the story and potentially the actual protagonist to heights they may not have reached had this character not been around. I did limit myself to one supporting character per show so while I could potentially just have found five awesome supporting characters from Sailor Moon, I have limited myself to just the one.
What a way to start the new year, counting down the top anime villains from 2018. These are my favourites but I'd love to know who your favourite villains were in 2018.
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?
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
These characters have been here before. They thought they knew what to expect. This episode helps the characters and the viewers realise that this isn't the WIXOSS we've seen before. Wixoss has always been an anime that collected some crazy antagonists. The battle junkies who were getting off on the horror of the Selector matches. … Continue reading Lostorage Conflated Wixoss Episode 4: It Just Got Real
Some solid ground work is going in to bringing the cast of this anime together and I think the end result might be quite interesting. Though, early days yet for the battles. It seemed inevitable that characters I didn't like so much would also return as well as ones that I had fond memories for. … Continue reading Lostorage Conflated Wixoss Episode 3: New Rules; Same Trauma
Spring bloomed with a whole pile of new anime to watch and as usual, more than a few of these are returning franchises with spin-offs, sequels, and reboots a plenty to be found in the line up (of course there's plenty of new titles as well to be found across the various streaming services). However, … Continue reading Friday’s Feature: Is Brand Familiarity Influencing Our Anime Viewing?
The rules of WIXOSS have never been overly clear in any version of this anime, but as seasons converge they seem to be trying to set a few things down in stone. Again, this episode was heavily focused on prior events but it isn't just walking us through prior seasons. It is genuinely giving us … Continue reading Lostorage Conflated Wixoss Episode 2: There’s Just No Escape
A decent enough return for those who like WIXOSS anime. Not a lot of point if you haven't watched the previous season though. What did you think? I'm just going to point out that this franchise continues to just kind of mash words together before adding WIXOSS on the end and expects us to somehow … Continue reading Lostorage Conflated Wixoss First Impressions
