The Selector Destructed WIXOSS movie is premiering in Japan today. To tease the fans and promote it, the “dark and edgy” trading card game anime film’s very first eight minutes have been streamed by Warner Brothers Animation. Brace yourselves, more Battoru incoming!

With recurring themes that include bullying and incest, the Selector WIXOSS anime has certainly made the trading card game genre a lot darker than it used to. Based on the film’s opening minutes, the movie is just as dark as the previous anime, Selector Infected WIXOSSand Selector Spread WIXOSS.


Introduced in April of last year, the Wixoss trading card game was launched along with the anime, which gained much critical acclaim and was considered the “Madoka Magica” of the trading card game genre. It revolves around the “selectors”, girls chosen to play a special version of Wixoss, and if they reach a certain number of wins, they will become the “Eternal Girl” and have one wish granted, however, getting that wish granted ain’t as it seems to be.

The trading card game inspired two anime series, with the first one titled Selector Infected Wixoss and the second one being titled Selector Spread Wixoss. Oh, and did we mention that it’s pronounced “Wicross” and not “Wixoss?”
