Well shit. Tama rejecting Ruko's wish to protect her was expected, but Iona taking her place was not. I'm on board with those that are saying Iona's wish wasn't as specific as becoming Ru's LRIG. I think the switch is something more fundamental, Tama was removed from the card because she rejected Ru's wish. Iona just filled the immediate opening. So it'll probably be awhile until Tama goes elsewhere(unfortunately it does seem likely for her to land Aki-lucky)

What's most disappointing is that it seemed like Rudoka's wish was going to be granted. Can't think of what else would have caused that reaction from the surprisingly alive Midoriko and Hanayuzuki. Plus I don't see why else Mayu would feel the need to wormtongue Tama like that, unless she really just wants her to stay on the card side(maybe so that she can continue evolving). I'm just glad the wish wasn't granted, and I hope that won't ever be a possibility.

Well, I can't wait for Spread. The possibilities are endless. I just hope the first couple of episodes will clear up some of the would be inconsistencies in the laws of the selectors, such as the rules regarding the wishes' capabilities and why the LRIGs and selectors can get back in the game.

So Hitoe was holding it in where she is trying to remember everyone, guess she succeeded through :D.

I'm pretty satisfied with the ending finale, and I can't wait to see how season 2 will look like. Also the animation in here was an improvement then the previous episodes tbh.

Pretty much I'm mind blown at the end where Iona becomes Ruko's LRIG and Ulith taking over Iona's body. Damn what happen to Tama :(. I need some answers. 8/10

Was this the first time the opening had all those sound effects (glass cracking, water splashing, etc)? First time I noticed it...

When Ruu starts wishing she can free everyone, it's about to become like Madoka. Then they break it all and have a "please try again"

But because Iona is likely not going to agree with Ruu's current wish, it would be difficult for Ruu to fulfil her wish. Will she now be the last boss in the next season, waiting for Tama's next Selector to beat her.
Congratulation Iona, your wish to be an Lrig partnered with battle-crazed Selector is fulfilled.

Currently Tama is probably coming home to Mayu and she will get locked away.
Would be interesting development if Tama is Mayu's daughter or sister who runaway from her.

Now with Hitoe not against becoming Lrig even after Yuzuki told her, this would mean Yuzuki has another chance of getting out of the card.

Oh right, there's a second season for this. That's why the ending didn't feel conclusive lol

Okay, so this show really good when it focused on Yuzuki but I didn't think it was as strong when it's focused on Ruko. (who was basically as bland as Madoka) Final score is high 6, almost a 7. Will definitely watch the second season. edit - Actually still deciding on score atm... Not sure not sure

The final episode seemed to end with the MadoMagi style. BUT...HAHAHA, Ruuko's wish that she wanted to become the beautiful sacrifice got broken. And Iona's wish that she wanted to become the Lrig of Ruuko was granted. It was wonderful plot twist.

Anyway, I was entirely enjoying these 12 episodes. Selector infected WIXOSS is my best in this season.

I think its the first time. Correct me if I'm wrong though.

Cliffhanger baiting me into watching season 2 now .-. TBH I can't wait for it lol.
Really love this anime although the first half of the series is pretty dull, the dark theme and plot twists really made up for it.

A surprising cliffhanger ending which I both enjoyed but was frustrated by. Can't wait to see Chiyori again, and it looks like Ulith may get Tama. I think it's kind of silly that everyone seems to be getting second chances (Hitoe, Akira, Ulith), though Ulith becoming a selector after escaping may have something to do with Iona's wish. I guess we'll have to wait and see!

Yeah. This episode hooked me right from the get go because of it, since most of those sound effects were associated with the LRIGs. Coupled with the names Selector INFECTED Wixoss and Selector SPREAD Wixoss, I can only hope this is indicating that the world of Wixoss is breaking into the human world, and we'll finally get to see that crazy Tama-monster that we've been teased with since episode 1 next season. 10/10 for this episode, terrible first half coupled with the fact I still have no idea how this game works brings my overall rating of season 1 to a 7/10.

Well that was an intense episode, and left me with all sorts of questions, that I unfortunately have to wait until Fall to get the answer to. It seems like Miyu has a connection with Tama, and doesn't want Ruko to change the world of Wixoss.

Despite how cruel she is, I really quite like Urith, and now that she is in Iona's body, I expect her to make more appearances in the series, even if her awesome design was probably lost forever. I wonder what Iona's goal of becoming Ruko's LRIG is? Also why was everyone crying and freaking out when Ruko was trying to make her wish? On top of that, what was the other condition Iona needed? For Ruko to make a wish so Tama would be removed from the picture?

This episode really made me appreciate Hitoe as a character, she's probably stronger than most of the other main cast, even though she was my least favorite for quite a while.

Also, I'm really glad that one of the girls in the tournament had Midoriko as her LRIG. She was one of my favorites, and I hope she gets a return to form in the next series.

Overall, I give this series a 9/10. There were a couple of weak episodes, and it was kind of slow in the beginning, but its building into a nice deconstruction, and a pretty awesome psychological series. Maybe I will use this time in between series, to learn to play the card game?

Anyway, LET THE INFECTION SPREAD!

If by this you mean TCG, then if you bothered to do a search you'd find the rules, videos showing the gameplay etc.
However, the cardgame rules aren't relevant to this story, hence they didn't feel the need to WASTE time
explaining them.

The opening song was a bit creepy :(

So Hitoe has her memories back but will help/sacrifice herself anyway.

Iona knows Ruko, more on that in the 2nd season.

That pink suit girl showed up for half an episode and that was it XD lmfao why even have her on the poster of the series if she doesn't even show up?

Too much white in the Tama and the creator scene, I couldn't see sh!t.

Ruuko doesn't have to win anymore matches, she just has to have Tama agree on her wish.

Second Season protag, maybe? Serious, think a bit:

I mean, Iona won't let Ruko do her wish (at least not THAT one), hands down. She will probably also try to mind f*ck the poor thing into a even greater Blood Knight battoru obsessed nihilist than she already is...

Hitoe sucks in Wixoss...Okada probably hates her =/

Akira in the preview looks like is back to the show, but no chance in hell she is going to do such a altruistic desire, that lovabe psycho XD

Iona-Ulith, she will probably make lots of shit now that she's free...she will be even better bitch than Aki-lucky.


Also, what's the color of her deck, again? Yellow? It was even said in the anime?

i don't like how hitoe just got her memory back.. i thought when you lost they said it was ABSOLUTE, that you couldn't get what you wished for back... and she got it back from... putting herself through pain trying to remember?? i don't buy it.
still liked the show generally though, i anticipate second season!

Well this anime deserve an 8 for me, really the mindfuck and all the plot twist really got me there. Can't wait to know what happened to Tama and what Iona's motive on becoming ruko's lrig. This series is more twisted than ever.

Aside from all the things that were silly, rehashed, or plain annoying, the show got fun to watch during the end. It just sucks that I was laughing at various things even in this final episode. And that ending was... weird.

While far from a solid show, I remain intrigued and will definitely be watching again this fall. I'm still waiting for the manifestation of the "demonic Tama" we saw in Episode 1.

well this was an interesting ending... i assume ionas wish was something along the lines of "battling with ruuko forever" huh? And what happened to tama?
7/10 for me. the first few episodes were pretty lame, but it turned out to be quite enjoyable in the end. and i guess i'll watch the second season/cour too, since i really want to know how it's ending..

so iona's wish was to become the lrig of someone who was a better selector than herself and for that to happen, ruuko had to win.

i wonder where tama is now. what are the chances that she'll be akira's lrig?

glad to see midoriko back.

decent ending. will check out season 2

Probably for a stronger Selector.
With Iona as the undefeated queen, she need someone who can proof herself stronger in battle. Just having Mayu pick someone she say is "stronger" wouldn't be enough for Iona.

Yes it was. It's something very rarely done, but I know there are a number of shows that have done it.

Anyways, seems the last requirement for Iona's wish was for her to lose? Which is kinda funny if you think about it. Creepy LRIG go... At least they did answer one question, LRIGs don't disappear for good when their selector loses.

Yeah, that's sort of how I feel. The ending of this season felt very contrived and rushed. Generally, good writing follows structure, even for plot-twists and cliffhangers - dragging on questions for several months doesn't make me want to keep watching, it makes me want to quit. :<

And season 1 ends here.

So far, it feels like it didn't manage to accomplish what it wanted to.

For starters, the setting was interesting, but the plot ended up way too forced.
Additionally, most of the characters that appeared seemed pretty one dimensioned, and the MC especially was way too weak, even towards the end.

As a result, every episode felt less interesting than the previous one.
This was pretty disappointing, considering that this is labeled as a psychological series.

Tama's VA did a pretty good job, but goddamn was the character annoying.

The animation was mediocre, the soundtrack was mediocre.
In general, the total package was the essence of average.

However, the final moments of the final part of the final episode were pretty surprising, probably because the characters did something that wasn't typical of them for once.

After that plot twist, they have the opportunity to make the second season way better.

5/10 for this season.

I don't think this is particularly good, but it was good enough to make me want to see what would happen next. Damn, Iona as Ruko's LRIG, wonder how Aki-lucky will respond to that since it looks like she'll be a selector again next season.

For an original story it didn't suck balls and was doing things right by focusing on the characters, but since this is Mari Okada making up the script each week she had to rely on basic character melodrama with some plot development thrown in to tie things together.

But once she got to a certain point when Yuzuki's arc was complete she didn't seem to know what to do with these characters and concepts, on top of having to deal with an ending that links toward season 2.

I hope the scriptwriter picks up the soap with these characters, this series has a good thing going on in them.

EDIT: But it can also be just wishful thinking.

What a wish. Was she really that desperate to become Ruuko's LRIG?
Hitoe has her memories back. Midoriko is alive.
Cliffhangers like this are okay. Pretty decent.
I get the feeling that Ruuko's grandmother is somewhat 'connected' to Tama. Just a thought though.

This season is good so I gave it a fair score of 7. I hope that the 2nd season might be better.

Nah, guys, J.C Staff is just like this, the bgm in the opening was chilling. I really wonder what Tama did wished for and damn Mayu for deceiving her. So Iona is now Ruko's WIXOSS? Well, well, well, 9/10, I'm being honest here!

and now Ru ends up together with the creepy lady... cant even imagine how Ru is gonna work together with her during S2 since she became the new LRIG... ==

So, S2 will be about "I shall find Tama, and attempt to fulfill my wish again"? somehow feel this series could drag even longer, but hey I am happy with the pacing and plots etc. Decent OP and ED too~

well done JC! let's hope they do the same or even better for S2 :D

I found this incredibly exciting and frustrating at the same time. The entertainment factor was very high though, that's for sure.

So many twists and turns, some predictable, some really unexpected. Regardless, I need answers. It's going to be painful waiting for S2.

Haha I completely forgot about how much Aki-lucky hates Iona. I wonder what'll happen when Aki-lucky meets Iona-Ulith/Urisu.

Ru wants to free all LRIGs out of the card but I doubt Iona-LRIG would approve of that since she wants to battle forever. It's just going to be Tama 2.0 where the LRIG doesn't approve of her wish. In other words, Ru is f*cked unless she changes her wish or miraculously gets Tama back.

Aw, looks like somebody from the higher ups of Wixoss had interfered. And whoa, Iona despite of losing manage to get her wish, man watta double standard.

If my guess is right Tama will be Akira's LRIG on the next season.

Iona was looking for someone to battle with, and now she found her, that's all.

Ustnap : That's what I thought, but I think she rather needs Ru to win and her card to be LRIG-free, that's what happened when she was nearly becoming a LRIG I guess
