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

The comedy and the fan service has just increased with this season

Date A Live II follow volumes 5-7 of the light novels. The first half of the show deals with these competitive Yamai Sisters, Kaguya and Yuzuru, who were the same spirit until one day the two were split up into two. Now they compete with each other to prove that they are the real Yamai. They have had 99 matches (25-25-49) and there last competition is to see who can seduce Shido and he would be the deciding factor. The second half of the show is Shido trying to save a spirit called "Diva", read more

-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.
