WIXOSS 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.

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 read more

Major distinction that must be made for the sake of rational thought:

"WIXOSS is a copy of/very similar to Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magicka." No, it's not. It's like saying Windows is a copy of Macintosh.

Yes, WIXOSS does share have some obvious similarities in plot structure to Madoka, but it's really NOT COMPARABLE. I could go on and on about this, but I'll keep it simple. WIXOSS has a more intricate plot, more characters, more character development, is more relatable, and most importantly, has distinct themes that are human driven (and less plot driven). Madoka has otherworldly creatures driving its plot forward. Despite what initially appears to read more

Not many people know what to make of the Selector WIXOSS series. “Eh… it was okay I guess?” seems to be the reaction of most people, and I think that can be largely attributed to the fact that it’s so radically different from anything else in its genre; we’ve never seen anything quite like it. Anime fans simply aren’t sure how to feel about a show centered around a card game that never even explains the rules of its own card game. While most anime in the card genre are about making every conceivable reward obtainable by means of said read more

As a big fan of the Madoka series, I was looking for an anime series that is somewhat or almost similar to Madoka Magica. Welp, I found it and it feels very similar to Madoka Magica. This is also not a happy card game show. How similar could it get? Like I said, very similar and I won't consider it a Madoka rip-off because it does its own things that differentiate it from Madoka. I won't compare the 2 shows anymore.

Anime: Mahou Shoujo Madoka★Magica
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  read more

Anime: C: The Money of Soul and Possibility Control
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  read more

Anime: Black★Rock Shooter (TV)
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.

Anime: Yu☆Gi☆Oh! Arc-V

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.

Anime: Fantasista Doll
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  read more
