In a departure from his daily routine, Shidou encounters a starving woman lying on the street and ends up helping her.

However, cutting straight to the chase, Nia reveals that she is also a Spirit and is aware of Shidou's secret operation.

The anime is constantly evolving. I had already mentioned my surprise when I discovered the previous season (Date A Live III), as the third season had revealed an aspect of the anime that I hadn't suspected in the first 2 seasons. This work has real depth, a touching and well-crafted story to tell, and it's not just a typical harem romantic comedy. This fourth season wonderfully continues this evolution. It seems that Date A Live has finally found an animation studio worthy of its license for this season 4. We had already seen this evolution in animation and pacing in "Date A Bullet," the spin-off ...

Mixed Feelings
A run of the mill Harem anime w/ Great art direction and character design, average story ( nothing Groundbreaking) and the same cringe dating extremely powerful women to "seal their power". This is one of those anime that I see as one of my guilty pleasures, as I watch it I know how absurd it can actually be but generally I just kind of embrace it and enjoy the show regardless. This is a male power fantasy, Our main character is perfect in almost everyway, the girls tits will always be almost out at all times and there will be panty shots.

Preliminary (4/12 eps)

I will keep this short and this review is about comparing this season to the previous 3. So this is what I felt after watching 9 episodes:-

1)The new studio didn't take the project seriously.

2) The didn't gather enough funds or gathered it but decided to not use it.

3) The animators are not talented enough to recreate the original more detailed character designs.
