Takara Tomy's Wixoss Presentation 2020 livestream presentation announced on Thursday that the Wixoss franchise is getting a new television anime series that will premiere in 2020. Takara Tomy also began streaming a video for the announcement.
Risako Yoshida (episode director for Selector Infected Wixoss, Selector Spread Wixoss) directed the series at J.C. Staff. Michihiro Tsuchiya (Lostorage incited WIXOSS) handled the series composition, and Takamitsu Satou (Lostorage incited WIXOSS) adapted the original character designs by Yomi Sarachi, Hitoto*, Kyuta Sakai, and Manatsu Suzuki. Maiko Iuchi returned to compose the music.
The toy and game maker Takara Tomy launched the WIXOSS (pronounced like "wi-cross") card game in April 2014. The Selector Infected Wixoss anime series also premiered that month, followed by a second season, Selector Spread Wixoss, in October of that same year. The Selector Destructed Wixoss anime film then opened in Japan in February 2016. The 12-episode Lostorage incited WIXOSS anime premiered in October 2016, and Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired.
