What about that yuri manga whose female leads then appear as cameos in the film? Or was it mostly just an LOR development?


Stirred:Wixoss or Wixoss:Re/Verse?

I think it was literal just cameos. Can't remember any relevance for the anime plot on those works.

Also Re/verse ending was so abrupt and weird, seemed like it got the axe.


Well yeah, it looked like a cliché yuri story with the WIXOSS stuff added. So at the time, I thought for a long time that it was some kind of "excuse" for the fact that the only real romance in the original show was straight incest.

Peeping Analyse manga? It's the background of Piriluk, the LRIG of the first anatagonist of the S1.
She's also the protag of S4 in her human form, and does a fight in S3. Is kinda nice short manga.

WIXOSS is an...idol show now?

I should probably watch seasons 3 and 4 now (even if reviews were poor).

Is this a side-story? How much does it add to the story?

Watch Season1, 2 and the recap movie, who has some extra content, with focus on the backstory of one of the villains.

It's solid. Think Yu-gi-oh! meet Madoka. End is a little rushed, but still worthy the watch.

S3 and S4 (Lostorage Incited and Conflated) were bad, some good ideas here and there, but mostly bad.

Also, do read the Manga Selector Wixoss: Peeping Analyze. Is a good side-story/addition to the OG lore. And is short.

Funny enough, they did adapted some parts of that manga in minor flashbacks of the season 4...most likely because the protag of S4 (Piriluk/Kiyoi) was the MC of that manga.

This one seems like it will be bad...

Wixoss mixed with idols (also bands and DJs are present as well)?

Sounds like it might be lighter in tone than the first 4 seasons, but the concept is nice overall.

So basically, They just make an idol/magical girl version of WIXOSS, huh? Wonder how that will turn up to be?

Sep 22, 10:12 AM by SummerADDE

Hey maybe they will explain how the game works... who am I kidding lmao it's all about the waifus.

Sep 22, 9:38 AM by Only_Brad

So is this like future where WIXOSS characters have been turned to idols. I'd give it a chance, but I don't use Crunchyroll anymore

Sep 22, 9:36 AM by NG_Chloe

I thought this franchise is supposed to be misery porn card games, not generic idolshit.

Dem tits and ass on the yellow one though, that's definitely not a high schooler size.

The first 2 seasons (Selecter incited and Selecter spread Wixoss) are the only one worth watching, in my opinion. I wouldn't call both seasons great but I enjoyed watching them.

The series' premise is sort of similar to Madoka Magica, where the girls discover a card game but they later find out it's more than just a card game. That's all I'll say since revealing more would be a spoiler.

The last 2 seasons (Lostorage incited and Lostorage conflated WIXOSS) are terrible and should be avoided. It's one of the most convulated seasons I've ever seen. The series should have ended at the 2nd season but they brought up more unnecessary conflicts at the 3rd season that just ruined the whole franchise for me.

I don't know how this new show will connect to the main lore but I can guarantee you, they'll find a way and fuck it up even more. For example, we Wixoss fans thought the 3rd season would just be a spin-off but they revealed at the middle of the season that it's actually connected to the main story. They'll do the same thing with this new show.
Miliking at it's best huh. Anyway thnx for the info.
