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.

A series based on dating. Date a Live wastes no time adapting this concept by having Shido Itsuka date various girls/spirits, earn their feelings, and kiss them to seal the deal. As a harem show, you’d expect all the girls drooling over him. While that’s partially right, it also adds additional elements because those so-called girls aren’t actually normal as part of society. Instead, they are spirits, born with supernatural powers who are viewed as a threat to their world. Date a Live II continues directly after the events for season 1. It continues to mush around its formulation of dating and turns it into 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

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

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!

Anime: Kami nomi zo Shiru Sekai
-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.

Anime: IS: Infinite Stratos
Both series have the female character protagonists and antagonist completely dominant over society, Shidou(Main protagonist of Date A Live), is a lot like Ichika, accept the complete opposite at the same time.

They deal with mecha, and action sequences similar to the animation of 8bit studios. This show won't disappoint you at all if you are looking for something to fill the void after Infinite Stratos.

Anime: Nyan Koi!
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.
