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.

Absolutely a must watch of any Date a Live fan or ...

It's an anime that tries to blend harem and sci-fi elements together, and for the most part, it succeeds, albeit not without its fair share of flaws.

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 ...

Ok so maybe its not just the OVA but the main series also but i do not remember being this annoyed when watching season 1.

so the white haired one, if you want to break up with her, tell her you like tohka. problem solved. in fact all the problems will solve. could have ended the episode after 1 min. i honestly hate the let's go to the beach or hot springs ovas. this is worst. i would have prefered one of those.

spoilers here not that it matters tbh because its an ova so there is no real plot. but the misunderstanding with tohka could ...
