This is the story of Tokisaki Kurumi that shouldn't have been told——

Date a live is back and it's great to see our beloved Kurumi again especially in her own story.

Okay, I first thought that it was supposed to be a movie that is an hour-long but I watched the first episode and it was 24 minutes, standard time for animes. It was great how the premise of the story is shown in the middle part and didn't narrate it in the first part. If you really love date a live, even if you don't know anything about this, you will just keep watching it, idk for Kurumi? lol. Also, the subtlety was shown, not revealing read more

First review yaayy.

It is basically an introduction to the next movie.

A confusing start, but you start to understand during the episode, which greatly improves the experience watching.
I liked how Kurumi's skills were presented, for example "aleph", which in the anime implied it was a teleportation, but in reality it is a speed increase, the movie made a connection with the OVA of Date a Live II, which was very interesting .
The animation was interesting, nothing to bother me, the characters are cool and a little striking, especially the White Queen, that ending made me very excited for the next movie, I hope they keep the read more

Sooo, a light novel reader here which means that i am up to date with date a bullet and i gotta say that i had to reread the first volume. You might be asking "Why?" or "Whats your point?".

Well, I had to reread it because i was not sure if i read the same thing. Cause the plot of the anime really differs from what i read and it was a huge disappointment to me. I wanted more emotions, more action, more character development and MORE SENSE!!!! Is it only me that thinks a bunch of stuff doesnt add up?! OKay, the main character IS read more

It’s truly a shame this was only 24 minutes. As a fan of Kurumi, I really looked forward to this. While I was not necessarily disappointed, I just wish there was more. Full disclaimer that I haven’t read any of the light novels.

With strong implications that it is a sequel to Kurumi star festival, the story starts out with Kurumi dropping into a strange world that seems to be a limbo between life and death. In this place, she becomes engrossed in a death game with other quasi-spirits and has to fight her way out.

The biggest strength in this “movie” has to be the visuals. read more
