Week 6 Verdict:

I’m happy to see WIXOSS being significantly more consistent in tone and quality this season. The part about putting a blanket over a trading card is a bit silly and strips away the suspension of disbelief a little. It also felt like a slightly forced effort to reconcile Iona and Ruuko. On the whole however, WIXOSS is weaving a beautiful story and setting. We shall watch be bated breath to see where they go next.
