On the day of the Tanabata festival, Shidou Itsuka happens to meet the eerie Kurumi Tokisaki, who proceeds to ask him out on a date. Although nervous, Shidou accepts the offer. The two spend their time visiting to a planetarium, buying food at the festival, and trying out a mock wedding ceremony. Meanwhile, Shirou's friends—Tooka Yatogami, Yoshino, and Kotori Itsuka—are looking for him, while also enjoying the festival themselves.

As Shidou spends the day with Kurumi, he begins to notice an unexpected softer side of her. He knows that Kurumi is infamously called the "Worst Spirit," but the girl standing before him is a gentle soul. However, as the day draws to a close, Shirou finally begins to understand the truth behind it all.

[Written by MAL Rewrite]


Bundled with the 3rd volume of the Date A Live: Encore, it is the unaired 11th episode of the TV series.

If you're reading this review, I'll assume you've seen Date A Live so I don't need to go into the details. I'll just write a simple review of this OVA

Story 9/10:
Let's face it, we all love Kurumi Tokisaki, I mean, who doesn't. And this OVA gives the fans what they want. Kurumi on a date with Shido. Shido meets up with Kurumi at the Tanabata Festival and they go on a date which ends with them taking a wedding photograph together. A little plot twist at the ending is for you to see.

Art 8/10:
Not as good as Date A Live 1 but still not bad. read more

Story: 8
The story was a bit predictable,*SPOILER* what with all the death flags Kurumi puts out, *SPOILER END* but I enjoyed it anyway. Good story.

Art: 7
The art was not great, but good enough. There are some scenes that dipped in quality, but it's tolerable enough.

Sound: 9
The voices were well done (Kurumi's VA did a great job, as usual). The sounds were okay.

Character: 8
Gives us an idea of how Kurumi's character developed over time.

Enjoyment: 8
It was a little sad toward the end, but fulfilling.

Overall: 8
If you're a Kurumi fan, this is for you. If not, well, watch it anyway.

One word for this OVA------> WOW!

The story isn't the best ever but I must say that I really enjoyed it. It's simple, comedic and straight forward involving a good romance without beating too much around the bush. The end however is sad but not all romance stories have a happy ending BUT I would really love to see a sequel to the OVA or even better, a Season 3 of Date a Live. Whether or not you're a Kurumi fan it doesn't matter because the OVA is well made and enjoyable.

I heard that there have been improvements when it comes to the art of this read more

Date a Live. Oh Date a Live. I have always praised this show for being something of a gem in the harem genre because it's harem, with a plot. And when this OVA and its plot was announced, well, I was ecstatic.

Story (7.99/10): The story of this OVA follows the story of Shidou, our main protagonist, like the rest of the DAL series. On one faithful encounter, he finds on the corner of the street, the most dangerous spirit/best girl, Tokisaki Kurumi. Wary by her actions, Shidou goes along with her and does what he does best, read more
