Original Name: Lostorage incited WIXOSS
Season: Fall 2016
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.
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…
Chinatsu has been an honors student ever since she was a small child good at sports. For an unknown reason, she gets along well with the rather quiet Suzuko and the two of them used to play together often. Chinatsu used to always be proud of the way that Suzuko expressed her yearnings. She previously used to live in a detached house in Ikebukuro, but the company that her father worked for as an executive went into insolvency and suddenly her life did an about face. Currently, Chinatsu’s father worked for a new company and lives in an old apartment with her family. She currently is attending a Private Prep School that she is paying for with the money that she makes from her part time job.
Suzuko is a second year high school student. When she was in her early years of elementary school, she lived with her father in Ikebukuro, but after that, due to his various transfers, she began moving from place to place with him all around Japan. This spring she has finally returned to Ikebukuro. Because she was always transferring to her next school as soon as she became accustomed to her current one, Suzuko has gotten in the habit of bottling herself up and keeping an eye on other. She does not have any friends that she can call her best friend. Suzuko did have one best friend in the past named Chinatsu who she can clearly recall and she relies heavily on her memories of her.
