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 (5/12 eps)
Date a Live V is definitely one of the top seasons of this anime due to how well it is being potrayed. The plot and characters from previous seasons continue to build onto this season with some surprising turn of events. I am impressed by the pacing of this season which is done really well, no unnecessary fillers / rushed arcs. The season continues to keep me engaged with its plot each episode. Banger soundtracks as expected.

Preliminary (5/12 eps)
Typically, I wait until all the episodes of a season are released before doing a review, but this season is so great that I felt I had to review it now.

First off, if you haven't seen the last four seasons or the side story, make sure to watch those first. This season seems like the conclusion to the series. From what I've heard, they might make a movie because 12 episodes might not be enough to finish the story.

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

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 ...
