More of Wixoss Card-Game Anime to Air in the Fall

The final episode of the Selector Infected Wixoss anime premiered on Thursday with an announcement that Selector Spread Wixoss will premiere on television this fall.

The tagline of Selector Infected Wixoss is:

 

Hope, desire, greed.Girls with each of these feelings in their hearts are being swallowed into the vortex of a dangerous game…

In the story, WIXOSS is a hugely popular card game, particularly among middle school children. But few know of LRIG Cards, “the female cards who possess their own will.” Only special girls can hear the voice of LRIG, and those who possess these cards are called selectors.
