「最後の希望」 (Saigo no Kibou)
“The Last Hope”

I don’t think I’ve ever said this, but this was probably the first time I’ve felt a little let down from an anime adaptation after having read a little of the source material.

Selector Infected WIXOSS – 01

「この奇跡は兢々」 (Kono Kiseki wa Kyoukyou)
“This Miracle Trembles”

Horrific card battles where girls battle it out to make their impossible wishes come true–perhaps. There are only hints of darkness so far, along with characterization and plot that is just a tad uneven.
