SynopsisWIXOSS is a card game that's popular with teenagers. Supposedly there exist "LRIG Cards," female character cards with wills of their own. Special girls can hear the voices of the LRIGs, and those who possess them are called Selectors. These Selectors have card battles in a dimension that other humans cannot access. It's said that whoever triumphs in these battles will have their wish granted. Ruko Kominato is the latest girl to find an LRIG card. She names her card Tama, and without any further explanation is thrown into her life as a Selector.

Characters & Voice Actors
If you were in a competition in where you won, your wish would be granted, would you compete? Knowing that there are other people who may have a more important or dire wish? Is your wish more important than others? Is it less important?
Do you even have a wish?
Before going into this review, you will need to know what a Selector is. In this series, there is a popular card game called WIXOSS. Among the players, there are Selectors, people who are able to communicate with their LRIG, or the avatar of their deck. The point of this partner ship is for the LRIG to help the Selector become an Eternal Girl and have their dream, their desire or their wish fulfilled.
Wishes and desire and the dark undertone that comes with those two are used quite a lot in story telling. This story is fairly predictable when it comes to the concept of despair and wishes. Though, if you haven't expirenced much with this common story device, you will be in for a treat, as most people who see the dark side and consequences of wishes tend to enjoy the story.
Out story follows Ruuko, a standard character when it comes to these types of wish stories. She is a character is couldn't be separated from the crowd prior to being a Selector. By becoming a Selector and playing WIXOSS, she makes friends, she makes foes and she learns more about herself.
On a side note, do you need to know the rules of WIXOSS before watching?
NOPE. Not at all. The anime's main focus when it comes to card battles are the emotion of the Selectors and the ending result, who wins or who loses. The only concept you need to understand is that a deck is made to power up their LRIG.
Also keep in mind that this story isn't to surprising to those who have gone through stories related to the dark undertone of wishes. It's very predictable and isn't too unique compared to other stories with a similar premise. If you have not gone through a story that involved wishes and darkness, you will be in for a treat as WIXOSS is a great introduction to these types of stories.
Art outside of battles is quite bland, with a lot of use of pale colors and grey. All the backgrounds, all the foregrounds, use this type of bland coloring. Is this bad? Not entirely, as it gives a feel of emptiness, which does help deliver the dark undertone this anime has. Was it required? I feel like this coloring was a bit over done.
Art inside of battles were beautiful colors that faded into a never-ending darkness. I could be a literature teacher about this and pull meaning out of nothingness, but I rather not. I still enjoyed the art of the battles.
Animation was great during battles, standard outside of them. Hand to hand combat and the magical attacks that happened during battle all looked beautiful.
Character designs were pretty standard, though the designs for LRIGs were amazing. Loved how they would look when they would power up.
What an amazing OP, killy killy JOKER is one of my more favorite OPs of this season and one of my favorites of all time. With an amazing chorus, it is hard not to get your head in the rhythm of the song, which is very similar to our main character, Ruuko. She does the same thing during battles, and gets caught up in the hype of them. The ED, realize -Yume no Matsu Basho-, is another beautiful piece that compliments the OP really well.
Well.. again, outside of the battles, the soundtrack wasn't all too impressive. It may have added to the feeling of emptiness, but again, it wasn't all that needed. Songs used during the battles were all great! Songs included DnB and dubstep, that all helped give the battles intensity without the songs being too absurd.
As I have said before, Ruuko is a very clean slate character, you will see her character develop as she meets other Selectors, as she wins battles, as she begins thinking of the questions I asked you at the beginning of this review. She is quite the enjoyable character to watch.
A great point in this anime is the relationship between our Selectors: Yuzuki, Akira, Hitoe and Iona. Some are friends, some are foes, all have a wish they want granted. These include some intense moments when we have our more important side characters battling each other knowing that their wishes are on the line.
The only problem with this are the super side characters.... the nameless ones. They are all terrible people with a terrible attitude and personality. These are mainly nameless classmates whose only goal in the series is to cause tension and drama. Sure it was enjoyable to see our main characters go through it, but the way they did it felt super forced.
Keep in mind, I was coming into this series expecting it to be about cute girls and card games. Boy was I surprised! I was looking forward to some dark anime series during the spring season, Gokukoku no Brynhildr, Black Bullet and Akuma no Riddle. WIXOSS blew all those series out of the water and another surprise series did the same thing this season. I never expected this series to get dark.
I love love love how they handle card battles. The no information needed to watch this show is amazing and I feel they handled that expertly!
Suspense and intensity.
The amount of suspense, the suspense in decision making, the suspense is revealing information, the suspense of wanting to know more, all of these add intensity to the series that keeps the viewer interested and wanting more.
With a great ending that is an excellent follow up to a season two, the plot twists, the cute girls. This was a surprise series that was an amazing to watch show.
Some food for thought... what is girl backwards? read more
Selector Infected WIXOSS- A deconstruction of the ever popular card game anime genre?
Not really…But does it even matter?
Putting the Madoka Magica comparisons aside, WIXOSS is a show that tries to smother the viewer with an array of emotions, as well as unfortunate plot points, bringing up in me that “one…more…episode…” feeling. Yes. WIXOSS has many aspects which make it an enjoyable work that can/will leave one questioning the moral standards of the issues presented. On with it, I suppose.
Without rewriting the synopsis above, we know that the characters in the show play a card game called WIXOSS, however some girls become “selectors,” and are thrown into some special circumstances. That is all I shall say regarding the story- this show is definitely best viewed if one knows little to nothing about it, as the twists and surprises will be that much sweeter. However, I can comment that the quality of the story is very good in this show. This can perhaps lead to an explanation of my opening- the card game aspect seems to exist for the sole purpose of being a vehicle for the story. There is nothing wrong with this, as it does the job nicely. The story provokes the viewer into thinking about the show, from character motivations to the consequences of decisions. While it may throw around classic tropes, or be slightly hard to understand- the story of WIXOSS is well done, and this is largely due to the array of characters in the show.
What WIXOSS does well with its characters, besides using them well in conjunction with the story, is the emotions they seems to create in the viewer. It is very easy to feel some sort of emotion to each character- you may despise one, feel pity for one, care for one, etc. This vital interaction between the viewer and the characters are very important in the psychological genre, as the connections you form with them only heighten the drama and suspense of the issues they come across. With their array of personality, as well as the emotional attachment with the viewer, the characters in WIXOSS become an integral part of the story. Unfortunately, some characters receive little screen time, and some are easily forgettable. However, this issue will be discussed shortly.
The characters and story both are portrayed very well by the visual and artistic direction here. What I particularly enjoyed was the differences in the world when a normal situation was occurring, as opposed to a dark, negative situation in the story. The art truly did reflect the state of the characters. Technically speaking, everything was up to standard- art and animation were mostly consistent, although I wouldn’t say they were stellar. The same can be said for the musical score, attributed to Iuchi Maiko, of “A Certain Magical Index” fame. Some tracks certainly stand out more than others, however I must commend the high energy tunes used during the battle sequences. They certainly provide a high note in a score which is fairly normal otherwise.
So…I’d if you reached the end of this review, I’d like to leave you with this- you should probably watch this show. While I don’t feel this classifies as a true deconstruction, (Because the card game aspect is really only used as a vehicle for the character’s motivations and the story, it is not truly explored) this show was highly enjoyable for me. If you make it through the first season, the second, Selector Spread WIXOSS, is slightly different in approach and style, especially regarding the characters. However, I will not say too much regarding that- the WIXOSS series is enjoyed the most when one knows nothing about it. So go forth.
Have fun. read more
In depth review #4 - Selector Infected WIXOSS
Before getting into this review, I just want to get the elephants out the room first. Selector Infected WIXOSS is really similar to Madoka Magica. The dark themes and the situation these girls where in is just too similar not to mention. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing though since I enjoyed watching both of these anime. I just felt like I was watching something I already seen before. Despite this, I still wouldn’t say Selector Infected WIXOSS is a Madoka Magica clone. This series does a lot of unique and ambitious things right on its own like actually making a card game anime watchable so don't worry. Its also worth mentioning that there are a couple of incest themes in this anime that some viewers might not be comfortable with but i honestly think they handled it maturely. The show goes in depth about how someone might feel in this situation rather than.....well you know.
Story: 7 (Good)
Selector Infected WIXOSS follows the story behind a girl named Ruuko Kominato, and her friends as they play WIXOSS, a popular trading card game among young girls. At first glance, this is just a harmless game until Ruuko gets a pack of cards from her brother. When she opens it, she finds a card that has a personality of it own called an LRIG. The people who are able to see these cards are called selectors. Selectors have a chance to make any wish they want come true by battling other selectors. This seems like an amazing opportunity until these girls find out the dark truth behind this game. Like i said above, the setup for this show is very similar to another show I've watched but the plot is definitely interesting. You won't find another card game anime as fun to watch as this one. Its interesting and enjoyable but not unique.
Animation: 8 (Very Good)
The animation for this anime was good, but nothing really stood out during the scenes inside buildings and in the city. The characters animation was also good but nothing special. Just standard animation throughout. However, the battle scenes went to an entirely different level of animation. To say it simply, it was stunning and it's where the animation shined in this show. The LRIGs trapped in the cards turned into nicely detailed avatars. Even the atmosphere changed drastically to correspond to the people battling each other. The color pallet had a wide range of vivid colors to corresponding to each characters deck color. And i cant forget about the attacks. The magic used by the LRIGs looked amazing and made me yearn to see more of the LRIGs move sets.
Sound: 8 (Very Good)
Similar to the animation, the sound really popped out at you during the battle sequences. During these scenes, the music really punched you in the face from how epic they where. They used several catchy Tech based songs with orchestrated rhythms in it as well as DnB and Dubstep. Any show that has Dubstep in it i was most likely fall in love with.The music that played during the transition and in the opening/ending themes were also good. I especially like the ending song. During the casual scenes however, i can't remember an songs off of the top of my head i liked. This probably happened since there wasn't many playing or they weren't that memorable.
Characters: 7 (Good)
All of the main characters in this show made me feel differently about them corresponding to their situation. The way the behaved and how there personalities developed over the course of the show made me think about how i would act if i were in their shoes. This was extremely relevant in Ruuko, Yuzuki and Hitoe's case. I don't want to spoil anything but i genuinely felt bad about how things were turning out for these innocent girls half way through the series. As for Akira, she was a bitch, but liked her at the same time. She is like the character you don't like but enjoy seeing them mess with someone else.
Enjoyment: 8 (Great)
I went into this anime not knowing anything about it. All i knew about that anime was that a lot of people weren't expecting it to be as good as it was, and i can see why. This anime was completely overlooked by the more popular anime this session but i enjoyed it about the same and ever more than those anime. It was a unique spin on the trading card game genre that i just have to applaud for since most of them aren't that good, Cough..Yugioh Zexal..Cough. It was interesting and made me remember how good deconstruction show actually are.
Score: 7.6/10 (Good) - Worth the Watch read more
So recently I decided to watch the anime 'Selector Infected WIXOSS', from the outside it looks like a simple anime about girls playing a card game, however the actual anime is surprisingly a whole lot deeper and darker.
The animes setting revolves around the card game WIXOSS, the card game itself is pretty wierd and not exactly easy to understand, however surprisingly the animes center focus isn't about the card game, its about the characters playing the game and about there wishes. Now the story has it where there are people who are selected 'selectors' who are able to go through battles in this card game to achieve there wish. These selectors find that they have a card that is essentially alive and is able to talk to them. Only selectors can see or hear them, these selectors battle each other in what seems to be a alternate dimensional world just for these battles, and basically battle each other with there LRIG, which is the card that seems to be alive. The story focuses on one specific character Ruko Kominato who is the latest girl to find an LRIG card. She names her card Tama, and without any further explanation is thrown into her life as a Selector.
The story does go into a darker path, with twists and tragedies happening to beloved characters which can only make you go 'Daaaaaamn', the story and setting I find are quite unique in this anime and make it quite enjoyable just to see how it alls plays out.
All the characters in the series are done quiet well also, as they all seem to have a complicated life that are all connected with there wishes, which you cannot help but feel sympathy for.
The art style of the anime isn't as unique, however it is on par with other animes being produced recently, with some exceptions like in the card battles where the art style turns into something that can only be described as pretty.
The sound had no problems with the sound effects and voice acting being superb, the intro song chosen for the anime "killy killy JOKER" by Kanon Wakeshima, was a great choice for the anime, being one that I would personally not ever skip, it gives a true felling of what is to come from the anime, aw well as being catchy.
However there were some negatives, being that the card games rules aren't exactly clear to the viewers, and really there wasn't a great majority of different battles to be seen, also I feel like the story may have been a bit rushed, and could have been a bit better with a few more episodes.
At the end, the series did end in a way that made me just want more, thankfully there will be a second season 'Infected Spread WIXOSS' which I honestly cannot wait for in order to see what happens.
Overall the anime was quiet surprisingly enjoyable, and I would recommend everyone to give it a try, even if you're not a fan of animes based on card games, the show is done in a way that anyone can enjoy it. read more
Selector and Madoka both take the formula that is normal for Anime of the card game genre and magical girl genre and places a dark twist on it involving the fulfillment of wishes happening. On top of these wishes having a darker side to them there is the fact there is a “pure” character, a character that happens to have a positive outlook on life and easily be able to make friends with people. The characters also don't have a wish because they can't think of anything to actually wish for. There is also quite a bit of slice of life elements as well as character growth over the course of the series. There is a wide range of characters. The issues each character deals with helps round out the characters as well.
Both anime begin with the main character finding out she can be special. The anime develops in a dark shoujo with battles to be fought.
Both series have a dark aspect within an seemingly innocent environment. Both deals with despair, while Madoka Magica has more, Selector has enough to make it depressing at almost the same level as Madoka Magica. Both deals with wishes and the cost of these wishes as well as the dark outcomes of several choices that are made.
Spooky dreams of potentially prophetic nature, cute girls pained by the smaller and larger hardships of their youthful existence, and a curious "thing" that can grant any wish upon meeting certain requirements.
Cute girls, story that starts cute and nice, then gets darker.
Both have nice art.
Both shows star a cute innocent girl who joins a battle of some sort to get a wish granted, even though she doesn't really have a wish. It turns out that this battle is even more dangerous than it seems as the mascots of the shows are keeping secrets. What follows next is a psychological thriller about cute girls making friends and having terrible things happen to those friends. WIXOSS even tries to rip off Madoka's ending until going for a "screw you, we have more planned" thing.
-starts out to be a simple and happy story and later on turns out to be a dark one.
Psychological and dark anime that involves cute girls
Both have very similar plots- A group of girls discover new powers (transforming into Magical Girls in Madoka, Becoming a Selector in a card game in WIXOSS), and struggle to decide whether fighting is the right thing to do. There are a lot of moral dilemmas over their situations, and there's a lot of crying in both shows. There are also a lot of similar plot points later in their respective series, to the point where some scenes are nearly identical.
- Very depressing, annoying characters that make you want to claw your eyes out.
- Both involve wishes.
- Psychological involving little girls.
- MC is depressed 80% of the time and constantly repeats lines.
- Both are to do with a sort of magic.
Both are about group of girls who get in contact with a fairy common anime theme (card game/mahou-shoujo). It all starts nice and innocent but gets darker later.
- Both take a popular anime genre (Selected Infected = Card Game and Madoka Magica = Magical Girl) and do a much more darker take on it
- Both have all the main characters as girls, with few male support characters
- Both focus on the psychological affects of the Card Game/ Being a Magical girl on the main characters.
Both are shoujo.
They both have girls having some power and going into another world.
Both main characters don't really have wishes and are really strong and cute.
Both are a little mysterious and somehow scary??
Selector is about alive cards and mahou shoujo madoka is about transforming.
You should totally watch this!! It will certainly blow your mind away.
- Both are supernatural genre and include a strategy game where once you're in you can't get out unless you win or lose.
- Both get darker and sadder
- Character stereotypes are very similar; girls in the main role
- The storyline is also similar with many twists
- Nonetheless, both are very good anime, worth watching.
Both anime are dark and have a cast of cute girls. At first, both shows seem to have simplistic plots. However, through dark turns and plot twists, they become more intense and the stakes become very high. Furthermore, the topic of wishes is discussed in each show: in Madoka Magica, girls can have a wish granted to become a mahou shoujo. In SIW, girls who are known as selectors can have their wish granted by winning enough card battles. However, in both shows, using this power comes with significant consequences. Overall, Madoka Magica and SIW are basically downward spirals of despair. If you liked one, or if you enjoy dark anime, then these are two you should definitely watch!!
It may look like the girls in these animes are having fun with tea parties and all, but the atmosphere is actually very dark. The main heroines uncover a huge truth behind the "activity" they're participating in.
They give off the same type of vibe, and both surround around similar themes (Jealousy, Grief, etc.)
Selector Infected involves cards though.
Yes how many times are people going to make this comparison/recommendation I know but it's really true. It's very good. This was like Madoka Magica except it didn't reach the same depths of morbidity as Madoka such as death. In some ways, these girls reach a fate worse than death. But it doesn't feel as intense. All the Selectors are girls just like all the Magical Girls are girls (naturally) and they can get wishes granted and become tainted. The wish granters in both shows don't explain all the rules to having wishes granted. They're both very enjoyable and you'll absolutely like one if you liked the other.
Young girls fighting something that seems to be more than meets the eye.Wishes also have a lot to do with the story. They both have very innocent/sweet moments to balance out the more horrific ones as well.
If you liked one of these two then you should definitely watch the other. Both seem just cute anime with cute girls and cute, girly concept. Well... no!! they both have a dark concept with psycholigical and dramatical story, wich girls and boys can enjoy.
Well, they both start off cute, but then turn a bit darker. Both is about wishes too, but Madoka magica gets them instantly, while WIXOSS-selectors strive for them.
They are not super similar, but i think you would like it if you liked madoka magica.
Both start out cheerful and get darker as the series goes on and both involve granting the wishes of young girls. In the beginning they may seem like the typical series for their respective genre but later unfold into something more.
You are greeted with a cast of cute girls playing card games, to later find that there's more to it behind its initial appearance. There's a constant sort of over-your-shoulder and sinister feeling throughout the story, surprising you with dark twists that keep you on your toes.
Both start out light hearted and fun but quickly dive into dark themes. Both are revolutionary in their themes and I only wish selector infected WIXOSS would be more popular. If you love any of the mentioned anime then trust me, you'll definitely find the other very appealing.
So after letting the show continue for a couple more episodes past the pilot episode i would have to say that these shows are similar.
While both animes deal with granting the master desires each anime deals with a different desire. In Selector Infected the show deals with winning battles to grant ones wish. While in C it deals with winning battles to gain money. Along with the chances of getting your desire granted both animes have consequences if you lose to many times. In both the animes it seems that the consequences both have a similar effect.
Also, in both animes they have an "avatar" that they do battle with in order for the chance of winning. Likewise in both animes when they are outside of the battle zone they can each talk to their avatars that are inside the cards.
As Selector Infected continues there may be more similarities between the two animes, but this is it for now. Although it is just a speculation i feel that they might have similar endings.
Every card has a unique character that can speak and battle with the master.
Character in a Card that can talk and interact with the main character. If you win you gain money if you lose you can go bankrupt.
Even though both settings have vast differences, the battle system boils down to characters commanding other characters. The aforementioned battles also take place in alternate realities
Both anime feature battles that take place in an "alternate reality" that only a select few know about.
People are required to partake and win battles for prizes and to "stay in the game".
In C, if you lose and can no longer stay in the game, it is likely that you will die or something so bad will happen that you'll want to commit suicide. You don't lose your memories related to what happened, which in turn makes it all the more traumatic for losers.
In Selector, you lose your memories related to the game. In addition to that, the wish of the selector becomes tainted into usually the opposite of what they want, which is similarly traumatic and near suicide-inducing as what happens to people who lose in C.
Within both anime, features a relationship between a "player" and a "familiar" that the player owns/plays with/talks to.
It just so happens that both anime feature tiny girls that appear to move in cards.
Both animes a=have similar elements and a similar feel to them.
They are basically about the protagonist fighting with an partner (avatar/asset) that lives in a card for something that they really want in another dimension.
Their wins and losses affect the real world and we learn that losses have some terrible consequences. As the stories progress, they become darker.
Wixoss and [C] both share a gamble of wishes and dreams: wishes that needed to come true and dreams that needed to be realized for the winner. Losing the game means the consequences of losing one's wishes and dreams, and more of what one could have hoped or thought for.
Little Girls fighting against each other in parallel universes.
One bright side, where you have a kind of slice-of-life feeling while
there is the other "darker" side, where the girls fight.
A big difference is the card game, which is not in BRS but the dream sequences and
the overall atmosphere are quiet similar.
Both Selector and Black Rock Shooter have a dark aura that permeates the entire show which is linked to wishes being twisted around. Each character is matched up with a color. There is a parallel between the “green” characters, including the fact that the fact they have similar personalities. Both shows are good at making the watcher feel for the characters.
Weird, dark-ish anime about younger girls battling through avatars, in a sense. Some of the girls have a few screws loose. Both shows just generally have the same feel.
Both shows are written by the same person (Mari Okada) and thus are very similar by nature.
In both shows girls fight for their dreams, realitionships or other personal problems in alternative universes. While in WIXOSS they use card games, in BRS it is super power girl versions of them selves.
Both are melodramatic and have a dark atmosphere mixed with SOL and cute girls.
Both anime feature highly emotional girls, fantasy girls that fight for the sake of those girls, and a story with a creepy and dark psychological undertone. Many of the girls are very lighthearted, yet have very traumatizing situations thrown at them. Some girls are brought to emotional/mental insanity or worse. Some girls are extremely malicious or controlling. Both of the main characters are fairly stoic, hate scary things, but aren't affected by them much.
Each of the girls in both anime have a color that represents them and that means something about them. Fights between alter-ego/card girls within both anime have heavy psychological effects on the girls in real life, whether it makes people happier and new friends come together, or if it mentally breaks a girl.
Black Rock Shooter definitely seems to have more effort put in to a unique and interesting artstyle, however. Black Rock Shooter has a very colorful fantasy world and fighting, whereas WIXOSS usually only shows a meek, dark, and simplistic battle field and even more simplistic battles.
Both have girls experiencing similar dark themes, and both have fighting taking place in an alternate dimension.
Both involve crying girls. That was a joke; what I really mean is both involve emotional/psychological torment for a bunch of teenage girls. Which results in crying, hence the joke. Unlike BRS, though, which starts off with some fucked-up yandere shit, WIXOSS takes a couple episodes to get to the a) yandere shit and b) unfortunate consequences.
Both BRS and WIXOSS have color-coded characters (and the character design, also--Yomi and Hitoe look almost exactly alike, right down to their green motifs, and have similar roles in the story; Akira and Kagari also bear resemblances to each other), with other characters who fight for them in another dimension. The difference is that BRS characters fight because of suffering and WIXOSS characters fight because of a wish or a hope.
Living normal school life with the addition of virtual reality battles and real-world consequences between the two.
Both anime feature battles that take place in an "alternate reality" that only a select few know about.
People are required to partake and win battles for prizes and to "stay in the game".
If you end up "out of the game" due to losses, you lose all memories related to the game.
Within both anime, feature the main character being thrown into battle before knowing what's going on, and people who try to abuse that early on in the story.
Selector is a darker and more psychological type of story, whereas Accel World is more of a hero fighting and becoming stronger.
Involves a game where you have to do battle and winning grants a reward beyond the usual but losing will erase you from the game forever.
Characters are introduced to a game that aims to reach the ultimate reward of unknowns, but if they lose during the game they lose all knowledge of the game and can't reenter.
Only difference is that WIXOSS is a card game while AW is MMORPG.
Both have the same card based anime.
Both involves dueling in a card battle.
One was more of a shoujo type of card battle, while the other one was more of a unisex card battle.
In one anime the player can use multiple avatar, while in the other anime the play rely only on one avatar.
Pretty obvious, both involves card game based animes, except Yu- Gi Oh! Arc was more of shounen, while WIXOSS was for shoujo.
Both are the same fighting card themed anime, but, one anime is a spin off of the long running Yu Gi Oh franchise, while the other one is just limited to a 12 ep anime and the players are mostly girls who uses active avatars.
Selector and Fantatsista are both of the card game genre, but one of the ways they vary from the normal card game Anime is the fact the main characters are female. The main character is naïve and doesn't understand the rules for the game. Both series have wishes fulfilled for those playing. Irony is that while Fanasista is a more light fair, the reason for the wish fulfillment is darker in the fact who ever is granting the wishes happens to be after the main characters cards and is manipulating things. Selector is the darker series and the “goal” behind granting the wishes isn't revealed early on like it is in Fanasista. Still... most series of the card game genre are aimed at a male audience rather then a female audience and these break that particular part of the mold.
The main theme around these two shows is competition, where the characters uses cards for battles. These cards are unique where they summon the avatars in battle and giving them commands from their users. If a user is defeated, a penalty issues depending on the rules of the game. The character designs are either moe, funny, or having a chibi appearance to make it a lovable character.
Fantasista Dolls is a lighthearted show, that uses groups in battle, and is a comedy. WIXOSS is a dark show, that is a psychological theme, and uses a single avatar in battle.
It has the same cute girls fighting with cards concept. Both features cute girls.
