OVAs can always be a hit or miss. You never know when you'll happen upon one that is actually enjoyable. And despite my feelings about the TV show for Season 1 of Date A Live, which were, in the end, left as pleased but not astounded, I will say that my feelings for the OVA are just a bit more positive.

Not every character is featured this time, which could be a negative aspect for some viewers, however, I believe that the three featured girls really bring a comedic aspect to this show. The characters provided funny back-and-forth banter, as well as silly scenarios that you read more

Similar to many other OVAs nowadays, this OVA has little plot and some fanservice. However, that does NOT mean you should not watch it. It is still as funny as the ones in the TV Series.

Like I said, there is no story. The OVA focuses on dates with Tobiichii and Tohka. Shidou no longer wants Tobiichii to be in love with him, so he and Kotori devises a plan to get her to hate him. However, the more he tries, the more she loves him (ish). Then, he goes on a date with Tohka because apparently her mental state is unstable.

Ok. if you watched the first season you might as well watch this too.

in fact, it is quite amusing.

The protagonist opens the episode declaring he is a lolicon ( yes, I thought it was an error too ). unfortunately ( for me anyway ) this episode focuses on origami, and tohka.

The art is as crisp as ever and the song ( especially the introductions ) were quite pleasing.

if anything is lacking, I'd say it's the characters but you should be ready for a static tohka and origami, after watching season 1.

as ever, tohka is lacking in brainpower - " do you hate me shidou? "

As with many OVA's, the Date A Live OVA really has no significance in its plot, or any real merit. Without further ado, onto the review. (rhyming FTW)

Story (6/10): The date a live OVA literally is about pissing around with the 2 main female leads Origami and Tohka. While it was ok in a comical sense, there really is no significance to the story. The OVA is based around the anime's "love triangle" with bits and bobs of comedy that is good for a quick laugh. Other then that, there's nothing else really.

Character (7/10): The characters are pretty much the read more

The male leads are coerced into making various girls fall in love with them, in order to "save humanity", with some help from their supporters.
