Holy moly that last scene. So Iona's wish was to become Ruuko's LRIG? Wow. Holy shit moment.

Can't wait for season 2. The last episode made this go from 8/10 to 9/10.

Just when I thought that nothing more can surprise me in this show but no, there had to be another twist in the end. Can't wait for the second season.

....Damn that Mayu chick that's wearing Kyubey's eyes for earrings.

I was expecting a cliffhanger ending, so I'll save my questions for October. Very good show for the card game genre and one of my favourites this season along with Ping Pong and Mushishi

I guess this show doesn't know how to hold back on the plot twists, they just kept coming one after the other right to the very end. This conclusion has left me with nothing but questions and a slightly longer jaw.

As a whole this series was the biggest surprise of the season for me. What I thought was going to be a mediocre card game turned out to be a mediocre card game...oh and an engaging story wrapped in mystery, endearing characters who pulled me into caring about their struggle, and an emotional roller coaster that kept me thinking "no way, it can't get any worse than tha--oh...oh it got worse. But it's not like it can get any mor--OH NO WAY, IT JUST GOT WORSE!"

Initially I was disappointed that the card game was never properly explained, but the matches were never meant to be the central focus and I feel it did a good job at forwarding the story with the conditions that came with WIXOSS as well as fleshing out the characters through their victories and losses.

Had my sights set on giving this an 8/10 up until the last episode. Now a 9/10 sounds more likely.

It's ok, the ending wasn't shitty or something, not very decisive either, but it's really ok when the follow-up is confirmed. Now that Iona is Ru's LRIG, this anime has even more potential.

I just rewatched episode 1 and in the scene of Ruko in the train, for a second, a panel with the title appear. Instead of "Selector", in the panel is written "Select or".
What this means? Maybe a hint?
If so, then the "message" hidden in the title would be "Select or infected we cross" like in, "decide your wish, or fucked up things will happen", or even a warning from Mayu for the LRIGs, saying that if they don't follow the "plan" and battle, they will never be freed from this endless circle.
Am I thinking too much, or this makes sense for anyone one else?

Gorgeous episode. Since the second season has already been confirmed and is very close i didn't care about the open end.

In the previous episode I was worried about how it would develop to the end and would have room for an entire new season, I was highly satisfied.

Iona is crazy and now i don't know how Ru will fulfill her wish, since I doubt very much that Iona will agree to end the game. Since the last episode Akira didn't appear, I wonder what she's up to, i can see Tama being herLRIG, that'd be crazy.

Damn! So much happened...
-Iona's wish gets granted.
-Ulith is now in Iona's body
-Tama is gone who knows where
-Iona replaces Tama as Ru's LRIG
WHAT? I don't even...
Also, We never found out what Iona's wish was.... To become Ru's LRIG perhaps?
Season 2 will be interesting is all I can say.

Probably because Ruuko has Iona's original body.

4.5/10 the premise was ok, but the execution was very poorly done.

Ok from the ending Tama must really have the power to grant a special wish because she was pulled to the white room and basically brainwashed into not doing the spell. The girl must have feared what would happen to stop Tama from granting the wish.

Grandma's voice sounds a bit off.

Extra sound effects in the op.

Iona really is a strange one, I wonder what her wish is?

Midorikko didn't die :D

Dat bitch really did convince Tama...

Oh so Iona's wish was to become the LRIG of a strong opponent? An interesting way to end the 1st season to say the least, I wonder where Tama went?

After that ending, whoah...... MINDBLOWN + JAWDROP + DAZED for about 10 minutes

The villain wins, and heroes feel the despair! I probably felt the same after Yagami Light kills off L in Death Note manga.

Funny how Iona's so possessive "..MY Kominato Ruko". And she already starts calling her "Ru" even before she's her LRIG!

I'm so happy Midoriko is still alive, which means Piruluk is also still there somewhere.
I wonder who Piruluk's Selector is/will be Ha-zuki or maybe U-ona. Piruluk and U-ona just imagine that.
"Another crazy bitch... really? Are you serious?"

Also, inb4 Akira/Tama team up and Akira's redemption.
Akira developing a soft spot for Tama and maybe even being a bit tsundere (kinda like Accelerator and Last Order), wouldn't that be wonderful?

I agree that Akira will probably get Tama as her LRIG. Aki-lucky will still want to crush Iona though so she will probably want to make RU lose so Iona's wish is taken away if anything.

The interesting thing is, I'm not 100% sure it was actually Mayu and not an effect of Ulith's attack, seeing how Iona and Ulith had been manipulating Ruuko and Tama into this for the whole time. I guess the second season will finally show us what's really going on here.

Hm, but it's possible that Akira is holding a grudge against Tama (for beating her), but on the other hand Akira knows how strong Tama is and if she stills wants to crush Iona, Aki-lucky will probably be glad she ended up with Tama. Akira and Tama vs. Ruuko and Iona seems pretty interesting to be honest. Akira wants to beat Iona at any price and Tama might be reluctant to battle Ruuko.

Also someone asked before, Eldora is a blue LRIG.
Speaking of LRIGs


You see the red and green symbols in the bottom left corner, that's the grow cost, meaning that Hitoe is probably using a combination of her green deck with some of the red, more aggressive cards mixed in. That's quite interesting gameplay-wise, don't you think?

Btw, I really want to read Chiyori's manual, that thing would probably explain SO much stuff.

The novelization she had? I doubt it would be of much help, seeing how blatantly wrong it was about the few details that were already discussed.

Holy crap, that ending O_O So first of all Tama and Maya ... I just noticed they kinda have similar earrings :O I'm guessing they were previously a Selector/LRIG pair maybe? That's why Maya doesn't want her to fulfill Ruu's wish? Hmm ...
Well, it didn't work anyway. Man, that surprised me. Then Iona's wish got fulfilled ... I'm guessing it was to "battle forever with Ruuko" or something and that's why she got replaced Tama as her LRIG. I guess her calling Ruuko "Ruu" was a hint :P Iona/Ulith got kind of creepy at the end D:
Surprised that Midoriko is still there ... so Tama will probably still be kicking around too. Ah well, second season incoming for the fall - that was fast! :O

Overall I actually really enjoyed this! It was a lot better than I expected. Pretty vast range of characters and I quite liked the animation too (but it got wonky sometimes). Also the music was pretty fitting :3 Glad I picked this up ... not to mention it got intense and was definitely marathon-able XD Can't wait to see where this plot goes! 8/10

Interesting ending, I feel like Ru's voice actor isn't expressing emotions as well as I hoped. :(
They pulled off a nice hook to reel us in for the 2nd season.
I have a hunch Grandma is either:
1. Maker of the game, can control mayu or even maybe Mayu's selector? Makes sense because in Grandmas perspective she wants to always stay with Ru which could be why Mayu suddenly just tricked Tama.

2. If not 1, could become a selector with Tama cause they both want to stay with Ru, conflict conflicts everywhere!

Can't wait for next season. :D

I enjoyed the series enough to go onto season 2. Surprisingly, I feel we could have had a little more card game action even if they were trying to be clever in subverting the action scenes. The slow burn of the series had it's good moments where it really worked and other times it was frustrating and the music was great. Overall 7/10

That was a pretty intense way to end the season. Iona's wish was a bit of a surprise to me but definitely makes sense now. The condition that needed to happen was apparently Tama being a dummy!

Spread is the next season. As someone said earlier, the selector realm may be spreading to the real world hence all of the selectors going "its happening" etc. From the sounds of it, it sounds like everyone is fucked. Hoping the second season ends with disaster for everyone.

Best part of the second season preview? I SAW AKI-LUCKY, SHES GONNA RETURN

If Iona's wish was to become Ruu's LRIG, then what did Urisu have to do in order to make that wish come true? What will Urisu do in Iona's body?

I think it was pretty BS that Iona's became Ruu's LRIG. If I think about it, Iona kicked out Tama and became Ruu's LRIG, but then were does Tama go? Does she go to another Selector? What IS Tama? I was hoping to see her do some forbidden moves or something like we saw in to opening.

The barrier that protects the battles from the real world broke, so therefore they are fighting in the real-world with real would consequences as it what happens on the battlefield.

Ahh... Hitoe's original LRIG, I always wonder, is it a he or a she? Because if it's a he then... that means boys can play the game... but they's no Selectors that are boys...

tl;dr - Mindf*ck, nothing gets resolved, but just opens more questions.
I believe that unless you know for sure that you don't like a concept, you should keep exploring it. Whether it be characteristics of people or a genre of some sort, you never know if you don't like it until you've seen quality work corresponding to that genre. Keep exploring until you've found something you enjoy, or something of quality. Then you know what's bad, what's good, and what isn't for you.

Well duh, hype for Selector Spread!

I don't want to speculate, I'll wait patiently for more material. Okada could just as easily be trolling us with all this ambiguity and mystery. It's intrguing, but we weill want resolve and A LOT of expplanations.

No idea what SHE did, but when I think of it.. Wasn't it said something about what happens if the lrig is unable to fulfill the wish?
If so, denying a wish after having fought for same would be the same as being unable to fulfill it, wouldn't it?

Maybe the condition was that the Ru's card was (or was about to be) empty.

I'm having the same questions as you, and I'm waiting impatiently for S2.

Oh you WHAT. Oh well, see ya this fall, for more of those card game battle I enjoy but do not understand. But honestly, who gives a crap of the rules at this point (I actually read the rules out of curiosity).

It turned out alot more interesting than I thought at first, and really hyped up for the second cour. I got the "Madoka" vibe out of this, plot twist and weird rules/universe. It's the first split-cour I actually watch while airing AND really enjoy, so now I feel the pain. very much

So a overall good series with a great potential I feel. Last couple episode left me with a great impression. I actually have some high expectation for the second cour.

Et tu Tama?

Am i the only one thinks Selector Spread sounds kinda ... gross? Especially since the last one was infected.

Hopefully our Mark Anthony (Iona) will actually grant our Ceasar's wish in the next season. The build up is too pretty d*** good for it not to happen right?

a show with some surprising twists. also i like the seiyuus voices somehow and the background art is great. some things are still stupid or rushed, but its a fantasy show for girls, so its okay if some things are not that logical. =p i would give this part of the series a 0,81. but i doubt, the second part will be better, because many mystical things about this show and game and whatnot are solved. i mean, at the beginning of this show i was mostly in the dark about many things and that was kinda exciting. but now i know quiet alot about this WIXOSS world and connections between the characters so there are not so many things left that could surprise me. i bet i will rate the second season slightly below 0,8, maybe 0,78 or so. ^^ well, we will see. xD
