Despite the numerous challenges he has overcome so far, Shidou Itsuka's mission with Ratatoskr is far from over. In a departure from his daily routine, Shidou encounters a starving woman lying on the street and ends up helping her. After the two arrive at her apartment, the woman introduces herself as Nia Honjou—a popular manga artist working under a pen name. However, cutting straight to the chase, Nia reveals that she is also a Spirit and is aware of Shidou's secret operation.

Interested in seeing his charisma firsthand, Nia challenges Shidou to win her over on a date. As he strives for an opportunity to seal her powers, Shidou learns more about Nia and her history with Deus Ex Machina Industries, a name he is all too familiar with...

Date a Live has been passed around like an unwanted step child from studio to studio over the years. Luckily, it seems like it finally has a home in GEEKTOYS that are not only committed to faithfully adapting the story, but enhancing it where necessary. Finally, people who haven’t read the LN can find out why this series is so loved.

Seasons 1-3 of Date a Live were riddled with a slew of quality issues. From pacing and cut content, to subpar animation and art, major quality of life improvements were needed. While on the surface DAL may seem like a generic harem romcom, there’s actually read more

4 years, 4 seasons, 4 studios, 1 spin-off series, 1 honorable decade's anniversary to live by, and hundred and thousands of people's lives changed.

It's pretty much said that out of all the series that has managed to survive the endless years of growing popularity and reputation despite the good and the bad, it's gotta be novelist Koushi Tachibana with his acclaimed LN series Date A Live that has now in this year (2022), reached its 10th Anniversary milestone. That, which is already a damn remarkable achievement in and of itself with the LN having spanned from 2011 to 2020, a full 9 years of what read more

Date a live IV was an absolute blast. The fights weren't butchered, the animation is clean, and the animation is looking as bright as ever. I never thought that the studio that animated the beautiful Date a bullet movies would be animating season four. My expectations for date a live IV were high, and they did just enough for me.

The story continues with Shido Itsuka and his spirits trying to seal other spirits.

The story is as great as usual. It isn't dull and it was continuing to get better each episode. Some episodes were a bit weird for the story, read more

Date A Live IV, as you may have guessed, is the fourth season of Date A Live, and as always with every new season of this show it also means a new studio. Date A Live has been going for almost a decade now and it’s still one of the most popular harem novels, so how does it fare now with this new installment?

The story is similar as in other seasons: they find a new Spirit and Shidou has to go on a date with her until she falls in love with him to seal her. This season is divided in 3 arcs that adapted read more
