Synopsis

Shido Itsuka, who used to be a normal high school student at Raizen High, meets the first Spirit, Tohka, and awakens his power to "seal the Spirit's power". Though they may be feared and hated beings due to their immense power, Spirits were always alone and knew only combat and death. Shido, the only one in the world with the power to seal the Spirits' might, hurls himself into life-threatening dates with the beautiful Spirits in order to save them.

There comes a time while watching anime where you get this kind of 'itch' that can only be scratched by a very specific genre of show, for some people this itch could be an over-the-top action show like Black Lagoon. for others it could be a good mind-fuck show like Serial Experiments Lain or Evangelion. But for me and my easily-satisfied outlook on anime, this 'itch' is most commonly a dumb harem show with beautiful girls and a dash of action! So when I found out that one of my favourite harem was getting a sequel? Well that was all gravy for me!

Ok, where do I start with this massive disappointment. I'll start off with saying that I loved the first Date-A-Live anime and I do not consider myself the biggest fan of this series and I have not read the light novels but this sequel was so disappointing. If this sequel follows the light novel exactly then good job but this sequel pales so much in comparison to the first one because nothing new happens! Date-A-Live II feels like an exact copy and paste of what happened in the last anime but with new spirits. Yes I know it is a sequel or second season to read more

Still new at reviews but here I go. Date A Live 2, continues the story about Shido, who is a boy who has the ability to seal spirits, thus preventing them from doing large-scale damage, through dating them and eventually kissing them. In this second season, the story is slow to start, but it introduces the Twins spirits and the Diva spirit, along with an inverse version of an earlier spirit (no spoilers here lol).

I enjoyed Date A Live because of the unusualness of the plot. I mean, I haven't heard of a show where a person dates someone, and read more

Once again, the momentum of an ambitious premiere carries itself into an undermining follow up. Although my expectations were reserved heading into this sequel, I still had anticipated more than ten episodes of disgraceful nonsense. In short, Date A Live II strayed away from the merits that propelled its opening season into relevance, such as the unmistakable charms of the vivacious heroines or remarkable humor drawing from a spectrum of dating simulator choices. It was just yesterday that an udon shop launched an eventful assault on the main group (en route to a local hot spring). It was just yesterday that Shidou read more

Recommendations

-Both have a similar plot: main character must seduce women to save them and seal the deal with a kiss.

-Both main guy character have a sister that loves them (less intense in kami nomi) that arn't blood related to them.

-Both anime are focused on romance but present a decent plot with dept.
Both anime are about guys getting dragged into a new world or situation were their primary goal is survival, and helping some girl(s) that played some role in their coming to that world.
They're similar because in Date a Live, Shido has to date girls/spirits in order to save the world, and in Amnesia, Heroine has to date the main guys in order for someone's wish to come true.
Twin girls fighting over one guy and other girls are also after the same guy.
Girl twins included in the guy's harem group. The main guy has something to hide from his classmates like being able to communicate with cats and the sealing of spirit power business.
sekirei have many similiar each other for ezample "the kiss power", girl who have super power, and how their relation whit the main prontagonist. so if you love Date a Live you should Love the sekirei series.
