Rabbit's Reviews MIXA
NA Release Date: 04/2023
Introduction

So, Mysterious Idol X Alter is our second AoE Quick welfare in a row. It is somewhat rare to get back-to-back welfares who fill basically the same role, and it largely works out to MIXA’s detriment. Relative to her immediate predecessor, Kiichi Hogen, MIXA initially appears to be something of a sidegrade. They have exactly the same deck and remarkably similar kits, but with a few key distinctions: notably, MIXA gets better cards, higher burst damage, and a pair of damage niches, in exchange for having less reliable sustained damage, lower NP refund, no battery, and—perhaps most importantly—no class advantage context. Altogether this makes her effectively a worse Hogen. Character preference aside, a player would invest in both for similar reasons, and Hogen provides higher returns overall. In a hypothetical situation where Hogen was an old welfare who was inaccessible to newer players, this might be an acceptable situation. As it stands, though, most players in a position to get MIXA probably already have Hogen or are too new to get particularly good use out of what MIXA offers, which leaves her as a Servant without a purpose. She’s neat in that she’s our first welfare Foreigner, but there’s not really anything she provides that other Servants can’t accomplish more effectively, even at the same level of investment.

Conclusion

MIXA is just okay. She’s an AoE Quick Servant who’s better at crits than she is at NP damage, and she has some tools for good damage on a single NP, but her lack of class advantage contexts hinders her usefulness in that capacity. Were Hogen not so recent, MIXA would be a little more interesting, but we got a better free option just a few months ago. There’s not all that much reason to invest in this one unless you just happen to like her.
