PostSubject: Selector Infected WIXOSS   Wed May 28, 2014 2:17 am

OP


Summary
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.
Taken from: http://myanimelist.net/anime/22273/Selector_Infected_WIXOSS

Thoughts
The best way to describe this anime is like a card game flavored madoka, and its really good
The card game aspect rarely matters as they dont focus on the rules of the game or even really on the card battles, they dont even explain the rules of the game, but from what ive seen its similar to real MTG rules, it has colors like MTG and the colors have the same kind of abilities as MTG colors (like blue can force your enemy to discard cards for example in both the show and MTG) so i just think of it as some variation of MTG, normally not explaining the rules of the main thing that the characters do would bother me but it isnt really needed here, even if i didnt understand MTG/card games i wouldnt complain

The first couple of episodes are kind of meh and feel a bit rushed (although i was expecting it to explain and focus on the card game, if i didnt expect that id probably feel they were better than i felt they were), the first 3 or 4, but after those it gets much better
After those first couple of episodes the show is on par with madoka, i was going to say madoka is better, but ep 8 (the most recent episode out at the time of writing this) dropped something amazing and its upgraded the show to be about equal with madoka, as long as they dont screw it up

This is a must watch for you seren, i dont want to say anything specific, but just trust me, watch it
For everyone else, if you liked madoka (number 10 on my top 10 anime list from awhile back) youll probably like this
It will have 12 episodes (8 are currently out) and a second season is already planned, as long as it continues the way it has been going it should be great



Massive spoilers DO NOT READ UNTIL YOU HAVE SEEN EP 8

The intro makes it look interesting, but it seems kinda stupid that the show focuses around a card game that inst properly explained. I don't see how you could get invested in it if you don't understand the rules o.0. Maybe ill give it a watch if you say it continues being good AS U HAVNT FAILED ME IN THE PAST PAT!

Yeah, i said "even if i didnt understand MTG/card games i wouldnt complain" but i dont know that for sure since i already have that understanding
And knowing what the different deck colors do in mtg does give you insight into some things

I guess i can give a basic overview of MTG without spoiling anything
White has a lot of buffs and heals (think of priest or pally from hearthstone since youve played that)
Red has a lot of direct damage and is used a lot for aggro (think of mage or warlock from hearthstone)
Green has big creatures (minions) and very specific buffs that work with those creatures as well as the ability to ramp up (think of druid, and the beast synergy in hunter)
Black debuffs and destroys creatures (kindve like rogue, though rogue is more red/black than pure black)
Blue negates damage and alters his own and/or the opponents hand as well as having various other utility tricks (hearthstone doesnt have anything equivalent to blue, a deck that forces your opponent to draw too many cards is the closest you can get to blue in hearthstone, but its not really the same)

In the show there are no creatures, those general abilities are used through the LRIG, so it may as well be a magical girl anime, where the magical girls are the LRIGs and the LRIGs follow the commands of the normal girl (the selector)
Or like pokemon where the LRIG is a pokemon with moves of a certain type and the selector is the trainer that orders them to attack

So you dont really need to know the specific rules of the card game

This ended a while ago and i recommend not watching it until season 2 begins
Its really annoying, they left it on a cliff hanger, like they shouldve just made a 24 episode season rather than 2 12 episode seasons like this

But it is still good, just better to watch all at once
Season 2 should be out in the winter

Season 2 began a few days ago
Its under the name of "Selector Spread Wixoss"

This is the new OP (may have spoilers in it)
Spoiler:
 
I hated this new OP at first, i still dont like it, but its not as bad as i initially thought
I like the transitions between scenes but dislike the song and general style, the first OP is way better

Also, heres a special OP from season 1 (this one has no spoilers, just putting it in spoiler tags cause it doesnt really fit here, but i wanted to mention it and i was talking about OPs so here it is)
Spoiler:
 
Its really weird to have sound effects in the OP, its somewhat unsettling
Makes me want to see other openings with sound effects


Theres a part in ep 1 that is hilarious, i considered it as a silly possibility at the end of season 1, but didnt think theyd actually roll with it as the real explanation




If you had 1 wish and just wanted to troll and didnt care about what happened to you, whats the worst most wasteful possible wish you could think of to make

My top 5
1. "I wish the entire universe was upside down"
2. "I wish to have unlimited power... over my imagination"
3. "I wish i was paralyzed"
4. "I wish to be exactly the way i am now"
5. "I wish for no wishes "

i keep waiting to watch this show until i hear if it bombed or ended up great. i guess having a 2nd season is a good sign.
there's nothing (nothing) airing for winter 2014 so i might pick this up soon

your troll wish q makes me really want to watch now though
"I wish i was paralyzed" rofl. and then he would just watch you for a bit, shaking his head in disbelief before slowly disappearing

1. ""
"..."
""
"are you going to make a wish or not"
"" *pretends im completely mute
"great"

2. "I wish upon a star."
"what?"
"thats it"
"that cant be it, that doesnt make sense"
"look, are you a real fucking genie or not?"

3. "I wish that everyone in the world could even and that no one would ever have to not even again"
"go fuck yourself, im leaving"
"if you get stuck on implementation, take a look at madoka magika"

This ended and the ending is disappointing
Overall id say the series was good, but the ending is a let down and prevents it from being great
