High school student Homura Suzuko has returned to Ikebukuro, the town where she grew up. “We’re friends forever!” She treasures her memories of her old friend from when she was little, Morikawa Chinatsu, and she’s excited at the prospect of meeting her again. But when she gets to school, she finds she has trouble fitting in with the rest of the class. One day, she decides that if she learns to play the card game WIXOSS, she might be able to make some friends. She stops at a card shop on her way home and buys a deck set. When she takes the set home and opens it, the girl on one of the cards begins to move, and speak. “Welcome, Selector.” Humans chosen as Selectors must battle for control of the five coins that hold all their memories. If they can retake all the coins, they win, and can leave the game. But if they lose, as a penalty— “Lostorage”—What will become of Suzuko as she’s caught up in this insane game? And just like Suzuko, Chinatsu finds herself drawn into the game as well… – My Anime List

All in all, this was a relatively decent addition to the WIXOSS series but I find to be poorer in terms of script quality but in terms of thematic depth, it’s right up there with the characters holding it back. The production side to it felt adequate but feels like only the bare minimum being met in standards. The show is watchable but definitely has it faults here which is reflected in my score.
While Lostorage Incited WIXOSS maintains the overall feel that the series is known for, to me, there was just something missing from the previous seasons. Perhaps it was the lackluster characters, the disappointing story, or any number of other factors, but my interest in the series continues to go down with each passing season. If you enjoyed the previous seasons, you can probably find something to like with this latest WIXOSS season, but if you’re anything like me, it may leave you yearning for more Ruuko and Tama~
I liked the ending in Lostorage though, it’s not neat and tidy but hopeful. At any rate, it’s a good successor series to Selector Wixoss and quite enjoyable especially if you liked the earlier series.
It is its own story and its own style, and you are doing yourself a disservice by coming into it with preformed expectations without having watched the original series.
