Selector Infected WIXOSS is an 2014 original anime series animated by J.C. Staff (Toradora!, Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo) and directed by Takuya Satou (Steins;Gate, Seitokai no Ichizon). A card game titled WIXOSS was produced alongside the anime by Takara Tomy in 2014. A second season of the anime, Selector Spread WIXOSS, was produced for the Fall/Autumn 2014 anime season with an anime film earlier this year.
Here is a synopsis of the series from MAL:
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.
The Lostorage Incited WIXOSS anime will be a new entry in the WIXOSS franchise with a new cast, airing on Saturdays on Tokyo MX at 1:05am JST from October 8th, during the Fall/Autumn 2016 anime season. Further information will be revealed at a later date.
