Aired: Oct 2014 to Dec 2014
Summary: This is the second season of Selector Infected WIXOSS, so I highly recommend watching the first season if you want to have any idea what’s going on.
Review: That being said, knowing what happened in season one won’t really prepare you for what happens in season two. For those of you who have read Calvin and Hobbes, this season felt like I was watching Calvinball – the viewers have no idea what’s going on and it seems like participants were making things up as they went.
The trend of having the mechanics of the WIXOSS card game receive minimal explanations continues, which is a unique move for a card game anime. The drama is amped up as well as the yuri. Well, one of the girls making the moves on other girls is a sadistic sociopath, but still.
While the ED, “Undo: Ashita e no Kioku,” is pretty decent, I feel like the OP, “world’s end, girl’s rondo,” is amazing. If you have the chance, you should give Asterisk’s DnB remix a listen, too. You can find it here.
One thing that did change is the prominence of Chiyori and Eldora. They’re my favorite characters, but since they’re both rather goofy, it only makes sense that the two of them disappear as the series reaches a climax.
If you want to find out what happens to everyone after that tragic cliffhanger in season one, give Selector Spread WIXOSS a shot. The ending to this season is also bittersweet, but it neatly wraps everything up. This has me wondering how the third season of WIXOSS, Lostorage incited WIXOSS, which is airing this season, will fare.
