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. Selectors are given the choice to battle using the WIXOSS card game and have their wish granted if they defeat three other Selectors. However, the timid Rūko and her friends come to find that the system is not as straight-forward or pure as it seems...
The series premiered on April 3, and North American anime distributor FUNimation Entertainment streamed the first season as it aired in Japan. The toy and game maker Takara Tomy launched the WIXOSS (pronounced like "wi-cross") card game in April.
The Selector Spread Wixoss anime is scheduled to premiere in October.
