Even though all three seasons of WIXOSS have already been reviewed here on YuriReviews, we’re still not done with the series. 2016 not only saw another season, it brought us a movie, Selector Destructed WIXOSS. Is it worth an hour-and-a-half of your time? Here’s my take~
Look alive, sunshine. Everyone’s favorite disturbed card battle anime is back for another season, so grab your deck and prepare a wish! What? That’s not what the winner gets anymore? Well then, cherish your memories, and let’s get to it already~
Just like our Yuri Anime 2013, Yuri Anime 2014, and Yuri Anime 2015 lists, this one will also feature all the yuri shows that will air this year. Since it’s only the beginning of 2016, this list is still in progress and will be updated whenever there are new shows to add. If you feel like we missed something, feel free to name your additions.
After taking a critical look at Selector Infected WIXOSS, it seemed only fair that the second season, Selector Spread WIXOSS, gets the same treatment. Even darker and more sinister than its predecessor, Spread attempts to make its wish (for a great YuriReviews score) come true, but it doesn’t quite work out that way.
If you ever felt as though your decks of Pokémon cards just weren’t gloomy enough, Selector Infected WIXOSS would like a minute of your time. Looking to add a more dark and serious narrative to the typical shounen-heavy card battle genre, Selector stumbles a bit in its quest, but it’s not for want of trying.
Since I already wrote a full review of this anime, I don’t have much to say here, other than the fact that this was my favorite show of the season, and I loved it.
I know, I know, the story has some huuuuuge plot holes, and it somehow ended up not making perfect sense, but I didn’t expect that to happen in the first place. I got what I wanted, you could say, even though the yuri level could have been higher.
First up is Akuma no Riddle, my most anticipated show this season. If you wanna read my full first impression of this show, click here.
In short, I’m very happy with Akuma no Riddle so far. Great characters, great music, great atmosphere, and most importantly, great yuri. Well, it’s not like there is that much yuri going on during the first 3 episodes, but the anime shows a lot more than the manga does, which is why I have high hopes that we will see more than subtext only.
If Akuma no Riddle stays as awesome as it is right now, I’m pretty sure it will be my favorite show of this season~
Next, we have Inugami-san to Nekoyama-san. The episodes are, unfortunately, very short, but they are packed with cuteness, comedy, and most of all, yuri. It surprised me just how much they could fit in these 3 short minutes, and I have to say, it’s quite a lot.
So, despite the fact that the episodes are really short, I love it so far. And don’t you all agree that yuri characters + animal ears = the best thing ever?
