You know immediately who that child is because they're still the only one making sicko faces.

The Media Maidenz watched Selector Destructed Wixoss! This is the 2016 compilation movie that fails utterly to compile the show in any meaningful way. Join the gang and special guest Cecilia, whom was subjected to the movie for scientific purposes, as they struggle to comprehend the editing decisions and try to make sense of what the movie thought the story of Wixoss was supposed to be and about whom. Throughout the way they engage in a most refined elucidation upon the subject of Sachi's "big titty goth gf" status, go over Ulith's new backstory and motivations, headcanon a bunch of sense into the new ending, and finally, listen in horror to Madiha's insane rambling about the "prototype to Wixoss."

Read Madiha's final thoughts on Wixoss here.

She tripped over and it triggered her hyper-asthma and that's why she's dying in the ICU.

The Media Maidenz tackle episodes 11 and 12 of Selector Spread Wixoss! After months, they have done the impossible and completed the second anime club. OR HAVE THEY? Join us as we discover the mysteries and see whether our theories held up. Is Ulith the ultimate evil? Is Mayu god? Does Hitoe get to do anything? Will Mari Okada make us squirm and suffer with more twin incest romance? There's only one way to find out.

Thanks so much to everyone who has listened to all of this. We could not do this without your support and appreciation.

If you're here: you've made the appropriate Selection.
