Shidou Itsuka faces greater peril than ever due to his continued involvement with Ratatoskr. He has already sealed 10 Spirits, and Isaac Westcott, leader of Deus Ex Machina Industries, has finally decided to kill Shidou and plunder the Spirits' powers for himself.

To achieve his goal, Isaac declares an all-out war against Ratatoskr, forcing the organization to exhaust its resources to ensure Shidou's survival. Despite being severely outnumbered and outmatched, a glimmer of hope exists in the form of the Spirit of Time, Kurumi Tokisaki. Shidou must seal and acquire Kurumi's power to travel to the past and confront the Spirit of Origin—the catalyst that started it all.

Preliminary (3/12 eps)
Over 10 years has Date A Live has survived. It is very difficult for modern viewers to understand how big Date A Live was when it aired. It had the fastest light novel to anime adaptation ever. By volume 3 or so they already decided on the anime. Now it didn't have the insane production values that something like Sword Art Online has had. I want to mention this is not an exhaustive discussion. You can probably write a mini novel as review of this series and still not cover every topic. And this is only a spoiler free review.

I was initially going to delay ...

Preliminary (3/12 eps)
The beginning of the season is excellent, lots of humor, preparation for the final war, but also emotion! Especially from episode 3 onwards. Lots of major events!

-Animation/cgi: BIG IMPROVEMENT compared to the previous season, a huge effort has been made, it's very pleasant to watch, a great achievement on their part given the low budget. The fights are dynamic!

-Story: follows the Light novel very faithfully, great for fans! We're in the Peak! This season is going to be ...

Mixed Feelings
Preliminary (4/12 eps)
WARNING: MUST WATCH all Date A Live Season 1-4 (incl. Side story) before proceed to this Season 5!!

Interesting story and plot this time, the more understanding will/might be clear in this season after you watched all Season 1 till 4, so this season basically the explanations why and how the Spirit is exists, obviously, because of romances which is Dates.

But DO expect more surprises every each episodes in this season, because every reveals and secrets might be shock the viewers.

Fighting-scene or Action-wise still considerable good but not wow-factor, and lack in this season since its focusing on the "history" or basically, about Shido/Shins' and Reine/Mio's ...
