Storyline

It's hard being the new girl, and Ruuko Kominato knows this better than anyone. She has yet to make any new friends after moving to a new town. Her brother sees her struggling and gives her a deck for the popular trading card game WIXOSS, hoping that it would help Ruuko connect with other people and forge new friendships. In Selector Infected WIXOSS, each WIXOSS deck comes equipped with a LRIG card, which serves as a player's avatar during matches. It all seems pretty straightforward, except for one thing. The girl drawn on Ruuko's card moves and talks! Is that normal? She soon finds out when a fellow student at her school approaches her and challenges her to a WIXOSS battle. Over the course of their match, Ruuko learns a few things. First of all, she is a Selector, a special girl who is gifted with a living LRIG. Secondly, Selectors have the opportunity to make a wish come true. But, finally, if they lose three matches, they forfeit their chance to realize a wish and instead become ...

watch it of you liked Mahou Shoujo Madoka...
1 January 2015 | by joelherroSee all my reviews

...although, unfortunately, it's not as good as Madoka.

Ruuko starts playing a new card game called Wixoss that's all the rage at her school. Then she meets a girl named Yuzuki who tells her she's a Selector, and that she wants to battle her. Selectors can actually interact with the character on their main card. Ruuko's card has a character named Tama, while Yuzuki's card character is called Hanayo. They then go round finding other Selectors to battle. Each time you win a battle, you get closer to becoming an Eternal girl, who has her deepest wish or desire granted. If you lose three times however, you lose your ability as a Selector, and worse, which I won't spoil.

I initially thought this show would be something like Yu-gi-oh, which sounded way too kiddy-ish for me, but it's actually a lot darker than that. There's definitely similarities to Madoka as well, but I prefer Madoka to this. The animation is decent and the characters are all good, and while it was dark, I thought something was lacking, although I can't quite put my finger on what. It was certainly better than Black Rock Shooter, which I hated and was worried this would be similar to. Worth a watch if you have the time and like predominately female, special power stuff.
