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.

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.
