When Origami Tobiichi asks Shidou Itsuka out on a date, Shidou considers this his best opportunity to set the record straight and end their relationship. However, even with the help of the Ratatoskr crew, his attempts to break up with her fail; in fact, Origami gladly tolerates Shidou's humiliating requests and blunt comments! Shidou's unconventional mission incidentally complicates his relationship with Tooka Yatogami, and it seems that easing the tension is only possible by going on another date.

The story revolves around a high school boy named Shido Itsuka, who must save the world by dating various "Spirits" - powerful beings that can cause destructive "spacequakes" when their emotions are unstable. It's a premise that's both ridiculous and intriguing at the same time.

The main character, Shido, is your typical harem protagonist - he's kind, dense, and always seems to find himself in compromising situations with the female characters. However, he does have ...

i dunno why, but this show is doesn't even make me laugh, this OVA even more worst that it's tv series, but since it's only a OVA i think i'll loose it a bit

Art 6/10
Art is fair enough, but sometime, i got a feel the ova is imitating from NouCome (maybe it's just my imagination... or maybe it's true?)

Sound 5/10
