Synopsis

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 sister-in-law, 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."

-Project Zakuro Reviews: Date A Live-

Date A Live is an anime that was released early in the spring of 2013 and has received mix criticism from viewers. Some loved it, some hated it. Many anime released prior to Date A Live have been well below decent so how does Date A Live stack up with the new releases? Well then, let's find out.

From my experience, I felt the story had a lot of potential but unfortunately some of that potential was bogged down by rather ridiculous concepts. I'll explain as I go along. A strange phenomenon called "spacequakes" has been causing destruction all over the read more

Boobs, explosions and cute girls are a time-tested formula. Apparently.

If there is one that has remained true about the anime industry, it is that cheap entertainment and low-risk adaptations prevail. AIC's "Date A Live" is yet another addition to this tired trend- doing nothing interesting or even particularly well. It expects the audience to willfully ignore its poor writing, because hey-- there are cute girls to gawk at!

Drawing inspiration from the 2008 manga "Kami nomi zo Shiru Sekai", Date A Live presents itself as a pseudo-parody of otaku culture. After our protagonist Shidou conveniently encounters two busty ladies fighting one another, he finds read more

Meet Normal-kun. Normal-kun is, overall, not stunningly popular. However, due to certain ridiculous circumstances, the world will be in great peril unless he dates a bunch of girls and gets them to fall in love with him. Follow Normal-kun on his occasionally humorous quest to "gotta catch 'em all".
Both anime is a harem. The male lead makes huge impacts on the female characters' emotions and actions towards the male lead. However, the male lead himself doesn't know much about it.
