Girls with each of these feelings in their hearts are being swallowed into the vortex of a dangerous game…
Takuya Satō (Steins;Gate, Armitage III, Say, "I Love You"., Strawberry Marshmallow) is directing the anime at J.C. Staff. Mari Okada (anohana, Hana-Saku Iroha, Amazing Twins) is charge of the series scripts, based on an original story by LRIG (Warner Entertainment Japan, Takara Tomy, J.C. Staff). Kyuta Sakai (When They Cry - Higurashi, Steins;Gate, Strawberry Marshmallow) is designing the characters, and Yoshikazu Iwanami is directing the sound. Maiko Iuchi (A Certain Magical Index , Dog Days, Waiting in the Summer) is composing the music, while Kanon Wakeshima (Vampire Knight, To Love-Ru -Trouble- Darkness, Strike the Blood) is contributing the opening theme song. Kentaro Akiyama (Studio Pablo) is the art director, and Yukiko Itou is the color key artist. Shingo Fukuyo is the director of photography, and Masahiro Goto (REAL-T) is editing.

The toy and game maker Takara Tomy is also announcing that it will launch WIXOSS (pronounced like "wi-cross") in April.

I really hope the PV's suspenseful atmosphere extends to the actual show and with one of Steins;Gate's main directors in charge it's definitely not out of reach.
The character design looks a bit too cutesy for my taste but it shouldn't matter too much if everything else works out.
I love the colour design and with Studio Pablo it's almost guaranteed to have gorgeous background art. Hopefully Mari Okada continues her winning streak even beyond her most recent work on Nagi no Asukara.

The PV left me expecting a Madoka x Fantasista Doll kind of show. Might keep tabs on this.

Ok Okada, remember everything you did wrong in BRS and don't repeat that


That said the PV does really intrigue me so I'm going to hope for the best.But if only this had ended up with Atsuko Ishizuka directing I'd have been even more hyped.

This has trainwreck written all over it, but that in itself has a certain curiosity factor going for it.

I don't care what anyone says, Okada has never written a show that has failed to entertain me. Even if not always for the right reasons.

And I liked BRS TV so if it would be like it and not like Gen'ei I'll definitely watch it

You know, I watched PV last night and gained a certain view about it... But I came back just now and read the staff list/others' comments. I did not know Okada was on this initially, yet the PV gave me some BRS vibes. I am not sure if I am more or less hopeful about this now. Like Utsuro no Hako, I tend to be entertained by Okada's work... even if it's for the wrong reasons (which is often).

I would be feeling this more if the designs were a little less cutesy... but if this actually ends up showing some promise, I could get over it.

Watching the PV is like a collective mishmash of Black Rock Shooter, Daybreak Illusion and the currently ongoing Z/X Ignition, so there's high hopes it would turn decent at best, but I need to try the first few episodes to see if it's good, though I do mildly enjoy Mari Okada's works.

This about covers it for my opinion. I'm still considering if I should consider watching this or not. I'll probably consider it if when it comes out there's a shortage of interesting shows.

The trailer already looks amazing. The staff involved is pretty amazing. J.C. can be good. Shana's VA and other amazing VA's are here. The music is amazing on all fronts.

Why does Spring season have this many good things at the same time? This is going to make me fail my classes...
