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.

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.

You better read the LNs of Date a Bullet, because this movie has nothing to do with the books much. Yeah you got your animated Kurumi fanservice and some cool soundtrack. But the plot.... even the oroginal Date a Live series are rushed. This one is on steroids and hardly makes any sense compared to the books' setting. It somewhat does the job as a story linker about Kurimi's past... but there are so many essential events that just got cutted out. I can't really recommend as a stand alone animated spinoff as well... For me it was a huge dissapointment. And the ...
