Despite the title, there’s nothing to be conflicted over this series.
Earlier today, the official Lostorage conflated WIXOSS anime website updated with a new visual and trailer, along with new details on the show’s première date.
We break the details down below:
The 105-second promo introduces the major characters, while character dialogue drives home the major story beats. Opening theme song “Unlock” by Yuka Iguchi plays as a background track.
The visual takes on a two-tiered approach to its visual style. At the top of the image, each of the LRIGs stands upon a board, cards scattered at their feet. Beneath the LRIGS are the core cast members, each of which is holding a WIXOSS card.
