Date A Live – Review


Itsuka Shido is a high school boy. On the last day of the spring holidays, an explosion destroys the town and a girl in armor appears in front of him. Shido’s step-sister, Kotori, tells him that the girl is called “Special Disasterous Designated Creature: Spirit”, which causes a timespace quake. Kotori disclosed that she is the commander of the anti-spirit organization Ratatosk and orders him to go out on a date with the spirit girl. Kotori says, “I don’t ask you to beat the spirit. Just let her fall in love with you and save the world.”

Here’s an anime with a weird plot. Basically this anime has a world wherein timespace quake appears. These timespace quakes are made by spirits; the only way to stop these timespace quakes and the way to stop these spirits is to make them fall in love with you. Pretty weird right? So, that sums about the plot of the story of Date A Live. The plot is easy to explain because this is a harem anime. Also, one more part of the story is, when the main character makes the spirit fall in love with him. Itsuka Shido (main character) must kiss them to seal their powers, then their clothes will disappear, ummmm wat…….. well, this anime has an ecchi genre…. So…. That must be the reason why their clothes disappear when their powers are sealed.

Art & Sound

I really love the art of this anime. It’s really advanced and the animations are really awesome; the art is well-detailed and it’s perfect for the modern generation of anime. Well, I like the way on how they are drawn. It’s really good in my opinion.

Now, the soundtrack in this anime is awesome also. Almost all anime that I watch has a good soundtrack. As long as it sounds good to my ears, I will consider it good and awesome.


The characters here has one male protagonist, because it has a harem genre, this is bound to happen. Itsuka Shido, the main protagonist of the story has the power to seal spirits by making them fall in love with him. Talk about luck Shido, but you’re actually dense Shido, really really dense.

So the spirits here are part of Shido’s harem. Each having their own dere-types. Tohka, Kurumi, Yoshino, and ……… no actually if I write the last one, it will be a spoiler. Actually, the cover photo for this blog is already a spoiler enough. So I’ll stop with these girls for Shido’s harem. Not actually all spirits are a part of Shido’s harem, there are humans too.


This anime is not actually for everyone lol, but if you like to try it, go ahead. I just watched this when I ran out of anime to watch. I think it was last year when I watched this. Basically, this anime has a ecchi, harem, mecha genre. So you know what’s in the “plot” when there is an ecchi genre in the anime. There’s also a sequel for this anime, and this anime also has a dating sim game. Now, for the rating. I rate 8/10.
