[First Impressions] Selector Infected WIXOSS


This anime is one of those that is a darker version of animes of yore made with the intention of bringing a cool, gritty concept, to an otherwise "common" genre (here being the card game or game battle animes). And boy, does it succeed. It starts with the name, right? Selector Infected Wixoss... Infected... and what are selectors?

Selectors are girls who are able to hear the voices of the avatar of their card decks. Basically, it introduces them to a world where the battles can provide for a wish - like a miracle - that they fight for. Of course, being the dark version of card game battle animes, there´s a downside to all those things. 

I wasn´t going to watch this one, really. And the excuse was pretty much the same as for Puella Magi Madoka Magica. I thought that I could never interest myself in an anime made with girl protagonists in mind. And though I don´t know if I will watch it to the very end, the first impression I got of it is very good.

There´s a lot of ambience in this one. Good, atmospheric tension. Top notch animation. 

And be noted once more that this reminded me very much of Puella Magi Madoka Magica. The tension, the creepiness, the feeling of abandon of the girls is almost the same from the very start. To me, this is the spiritual sucessor or PMMM. 

As for first impressions, this was very nice. It´s basically a card game anime, but, like PMMM, it has that creepy twist wherein the girls are fighting for more than just their lives, and putting them on the line, while entering a world that creeps both them and us as viewers. 

For now,
