Soon after falling into another world, Kurumi Tokisaki takes interest in a particular white cat. Much to Kurumi's disappointment, the two part ways.

Kurumi later meets Hibiki Higoromo, a white haired quasi-spirit. Hibiki explains that they are at the center of a killing game between quasi-spirits. Within the Neighboring World, the spirits compete for a single wish to be granted to the lone survivor of the death-match.

Understanding the rules of the game, Kurumi and Hibiki reach a compromise—a temporary alliance.

Are you, like me, a fan of Kurumi, but not a fan of Date a live ?
Well then, here are some good news.

Only fighting, no harem trash, no annoying characters, no ecchi, just Kurumi ! 100% Kurumi.

Unfortunately, the movie is only 24 minutes long, so the story is incomplete.
It focuses mainly on the characters introduction, and explains the plot, or the reason for the battle, with some briefs flashbacks on Kurumi's past.

But apparently, there is a second part, I hope it will be as good.

Because what's better than a movie for Kurumi ? Well, two movies of Kurumi of course.

I am not a big fan of Date a Live to begin with but I was excited when a movie featuring Kurumi Tokisaki was announced. Her character is without a doubt the best thing from Date a Live. Her abilities, design, and character in general are very interesting so my disappointment with this movie was even greater.

Sadly this "movie" is 24 minutes long and is just introducing new characters. Thats it. Thats the whole "movie". It is just an introduction for the next movie.

I really hope that the next movie will be worth the wait. But this was an absolute letdown.

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

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
