Shidō Itsuka, a seemingly ordinary high schooler comes across a mysterious girl at the ground zero of a spacequake and learns from his sister Kotori she is one of the “Spirits” who are the real cause of the spacequakes that occur when they manifest themselves in the world. He also learns that Kotori is the captain of the airship Ratatoskr and recruits him to make use of his mysterious ability to seal the Spirits’ powers and stop them from being a threat to mankind. However, there is a catch: to seal a Spirit, he must make her fall in love with him.

I’ve been looking forward to this one ever since they posted that first promo with the really addictively awesome BGM when they first annopunced it was getting an anime adaption.
I’m so hoping Sentai picks this one up, or at the very least, CR gets to stream it if someone else does.

Funimation to Stream Date A Live Romantic Comedy Anime

Series about boy who must date spirit to save the world to premiere on site on Friday

Ep. 01

So I just finished up the first ep. and I’m rather disappointed thus far.
The OST I was hoping for was pretty much non-existant.

The show in itself and concept is rather silly, but that’s never really stopped me before.
Not really sure if I’ll continue with this one.

Ep. 03

I so loved this episode!

And OMG!


Tohka was so insanely adorable this episode!

Her inquisitive ribbon, the looks in her eyes and her pure complete naiveté just pushed it over the edge for me.

So moe that I just melted and wanted to protect her from EVERYTHING!

Ep. 04

I’m actually rather enjoying this one as a whole.
The concept is silly beyond belief, but that actually creates some rather homorous situations.

Ep. 07

This has actually been a super fun series thus far.


The new Spirit (Kurumi) is one hell of a psychopath.

Ep. 9


Super Huge revelation about Kotori right at the end. Do not Miss it

Ep. 08

Fun episode, though the lack of super cute Yoshino made me sad.


3 dates at the same time!

You know, Kurumi is one twisted Spirit, but those guys really had it coming.

Ep. 11

This series is just over all rather fun.


Shido now has to get his sister to fall in love with him.

A daunghting task indeed, considering she knows the ins-and-outs of the whole choice selection thing going on behind the scenes in Shido’s ear.

Date A Live Anime Gets 2nd Season

I enjoyed this series way more than I should, I’m glad it’s getting a second season.
