One fundamental problem with this show is that all their issues could be solved without wishes. Chick wants to fuck her brother? Just go for it. Ronery girl wants friends? Visit Crymore and you qualify to be mine, megane-chan! We need some Geass-level ambition in this shit.

Also, they could just like… buy the best decks. It’s not like this is YGO where gods beat money.

[Asenshi] selector infected WIXOSS - 02 [BCF871D6].mkv_snapshot_01.15_[2014.04.12_13.26.45] [Asenshi] selector infected WIXOSS - 02 [BCF871D6].mkv_snapshot_01.28_[2014.04.12_13.27.06]

Opening. Fairly standard. Colors are sensible and the font ain’t terrible.

Rating: Okay+.

[Asenshi] selector infected WIXOSS - 02 [BCF871D6].mkv_snapshot_22.09_[2014.04.12_14.03.44] [Asenshi] selector infected WIXOSS - 02 [BCF871D6].mkv_snapshot_22.21_[2014.04.12_14.04.00]

Ending. Not a fan of how the font meshes with the visuals. Too much fuwa fuwa for my grimdark card show ED.

Rating: Okay.

Script Review

Main Script.

[Asenshi] selector infected WIXOSS - 02 [BCF871D6].mkv_snapshot_00.17_[2014.04.12_16.57.22] [Asenshi] selector infected WIXOSS - 02 [BCF871D6].mkv_snapshot_00.23_[2014.04.12_16.57.32]

Have her respond with a “Right.” or something similar. “Yeah” is not an adequate response to that question.

[Asenshi] selector infected WIXOSS - 02 [BCF871D6].mkv_snapshot_00.35_[2014.04.12_17.01.22]

Really, Asenshi? Do any of you have friends? Common parlance is “C’mon, let’s race!”

[Asenshi] selector infected WIXOSS - 02 [BCF871D6].mkv_snapshot_02.22_[2014.04.12_17.03.44]

You’d wanna use “glance” over “look” here. Reason being, “glance” is a quicker action, and the point of this line is to show how the cardgirls can immediately recognize Selectors.

[Asenshi] selector infected WIXOSS - 02 [BCF871D6].mkv_snapshot_02.40_[2014.04.12_17.04.34]

Does the mark have a restraining order on you or something? Cuz you aren’t within even 200 yards of it.

“She was in that one drama, and she’s about to release a new single too.” {Drama could be replaced with “show” if you don’t wanna pander.}

[Asenshi] selector infected WIXOSS - 02 [BCF871D6].mkv_snapshot_02.55_[2014.04.12_16.44.14]

I understand fansubbers don’t rest at the top of relevance tower, but holy fuck you guys what the hell?

While calling someone a “‘zine model” might have flown 3-4 decades ago, there’s no fucking way it holds up today. And giving this dialogue to a high school girl, who you’re trying to make hip with your “Like, seriously?” line, just calls more attention to your poor choice of words.

Here’s a hint for how normal humans speak, guys: a “magazine model” is just a “model”. Call her “famous model” in this line and you’ll get the right sentiment across.

[Asenshi] selector infected WIXOSS - 02 [BCF871D6].mkv_snapshot_04.31_[2014.04.12_13.31.27] [Asenshi] selector infected WIXOSS - 02 [BCF871D6].mkv_snapshot_04.35_[2014.04.12_13.31.35]

I know Japanese names are difficult to remember, but these lines are back to back.

[Asenshi] selector infected WIXOSS - 02 [BCF871D6].mkv_snapshot_05.48_[2014.04.12_13.33.44]

Up your kawaii levels: it should be stampy-stamp. Similarly, for the “starty-starty” line, you’d want “starty-start”.

[Asenshi] selector infected WIXOSS - 02 [BCF871D6].mkv_snapshot_06.04_[2014.04.12_13.34.36]

[Asenshi] selector infected WIXOSS - 02 [BCF871D6].mkv_snapshot_06.11_[2014.04.12_13.37.03]

Have you guys ever played a TCG before? Unless you’re actually ready to end your turn, don’t use words like “finally”.

[Asenshi] selector infected WIXOSS - 02 [BCF871D6].mkv_snapshot_06.30_[2014.04.12_17.16.54]

There’s no emphasis, interruption, or change of thought here. So why the fuck did you use an em-dash?

[Asenshi] selector infected WIXOSS - 02 [BCF871D6].mkv_snapshot_06.33_[2014.04.12_17.17.06]

really, really

[Asenshi] selector infected WIXOSS - 02 [BCF871D6].mkv_snapshot_07.34_[2014.04.12_13.39.19]

Poor Megane-chan. Maybe if she hadn’t been slitting her wrists during English class, she’d have enough blood left for another period.

[Asenshi] selector infected WIXOSS - 02 [BCF871D6].mkv_snapshot_07.56_[2014.04.12_17.19.52] [Asenshi] selector infected WIXOSS - 02 [BCF871D6].mkv_snapshot_08.09_[2014.04.12_17.20.06]

Standards.

[Asenshi] selector infected WIXOSS - 02 [BCF871D6].mkv_snapshot_09.34_[2014.04.12_17.22.55]

“This is too cruel.”

She’s only talking about the battle as a side note. The real issue here is Aki’s being a cunt to megane-chan.

[Asenshi] selector infected WIXOSS - 02 [BCF871D6].mkv_snapshot_15.30_[2014.04.12_13.52.48] [Asenshi] selector infected WIXOSS - 02 [BCF871D6].mkv_snapshot_15.33_[2014.04.12_13.52.55]

You just don’t double just lines that just come after each other just like that.

[Asenshi] selector infected WIXOSS - 02 [BCF871D6].mkv_snapshot_18.48_[2014.04.12_18.01.35] [Asenshi] selector infected WIXOSS - 02 [BCF871D6].mkv_snapshot_18.51_[2014.04.12_18.01.44]

Yeah, no. We’ve been over this issue before. Learn how to converse.

[Asenshi] selector infected WIXOSS - 02 [BCF871D6].mkv_snapshot_19.41_[2014.04.12_18.02.40]

“I’ve got to plan ahead!”

[Asenshi] selector infected WIXOSS - 02 [BCF871D6].mkv_snapshot_19.51_[2014.04.12_19.42.53]

While I’ll give you a pass on the line, most humans would go with “Isn’t that the girl who works at the card shop?”

Your options are Funimation, or wait one day for this. Since this is a Funi edit, and Funi is Funi, I’d recommend waiting the day. Though, a better option would be to avoid this terrible show.

Minachi says:

Agreed.

Nyangoro says:

You have to remember that not every parallel dimension has the luxury of Crymore. Some people have to make friends, like, IRL and stuff. And that shit’s hard for people who like TCGs.

Dark_Sage says:

TIL there are some dimensions not worth living in. Sucks for the Wixoss chicks.

TheUberAsian says:

Lol… Aren’t you suppose to follow the poll?

Dark_Sage says:

Oh shit, I forgot. Dark_Sage is gonna be sooo pissed.

Dium says:

dark sage stinx he didnt follow poll

shcboomer says:

D_S now officially running a dictatorship. XD

Kurt says:

WHY PUT UP A POLL IN THE FIRST PLACE YOU FUC–

Patiently waiting for your Akuma no Riddle reviews.

Dark_Sage says:

You’ll get something for the top vote before I go to sleep. Probably.

jenny says:

so next week?

Dark_Sage says:

You know me too well~

Solaristics says:

Hey, hey… He could go almost a month without a post like last time.

Dark_Sage says:

To be fair to me, I’m really lazy.

Solaristics says:

I dropped the show after episode 1.

Fuwaa says:

I dropped the show after the preview.

Assasin_Cross says:

We need a Dark_Sage card.
Description: “If you use this card, you will get auto-win.”

Qrius says:

A-a fansub review?! What is this blashpemy…?

Serulin says:

Yeah the basic premise is rather lol. They can use mundane cards in their supernatural deck so it goes back to the richest wins. They are taking the Madoka “I have no wish” route to make the main char not seem greedy. The only reason it worked for Madoka was the cost of the wish. If you seriously have NOTHING you want in life then I would say your lack of ambition is unnatural and would ask for a new protag who I can give a shit about.
