The BS11 television channel aired a television commercial for selector infected WIXOSS, a new original anime:
The anime will premiere on Friday, April 4 at 25:05 (effectively Saturday, April 5 at 1:05 a.m.) on the Tokyo MX TV station. It will then debut on BS11 on April 6.
The tagline of the anime is:
Hope, desire, greed.
Girls with each of these feelings in their hearts are being swallowed into the vortex of a dangerous game…
WIXOSS is a hugely popular card game, particularly among middle school children. But few know of LRIG Card, "the card of girls who possess will." Only special girls can hear the voice of LRIG, and those who possess this card are called selectors.
Scattered strange gene "wixoss"
all around the world [fused] into one form.
Searching in vain for a fight…
Victory will be the only way for her
wish to [revolutionize].
Now, shall her "Wish Across" be conquered.
