THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
And it's finally here. Shame this season is only 10 episodes.

Yoshino was more adorable than I had thought anyways. Looks like shit goes down alright. Origami what. Jealousy in the morning, no surprise there. Eh, the episode wasn't very impressive but hopefully will pick up pace soon from the LN I hope. Well damn, Tohka sure got brutal.

I'm so glad its back :D. Sucks that is only 10 episodes, so I would expect some rushing consistency.

Tohka is much more of a worrysome person when Shido interacts with Origami. Damn that was kind of intense at the end but that kiss was perfect. Kurumi at the end :D.

Lets see how the second season can handle.

All that QUALITY...
Hopefully the future episodes will be better animation wise, other than that, It was an alright episode for an anime original.
Can't wait for the twins arc.

I never knew bathrooms could freeze like that, it reminds me of a dream I had but it was the kitchen instead of the bathroom. I like Yoshino in this season far better than the first since she speaks more, and her dress is lovely, I prefer it to the one in the cover of Tohka Working/Yoshino Highschool.

Tohka's naivety is so cute, she thinks that all the signs of cheating in a romance film are the same signs that Shido is cheating on her. The aerial kiss at the end made it all the cuter.

Only 10 episodes planned and they had to make half of the first one to be anime original with loads of forced drama and misunderstandings. The pacing and the music placements are pretty off. Not to mention some QUALITY here and there.
At least the other half of the episode they managed to place that dialogue of Origami and Shidou on the bathroom. And they even managed to sneak in the skipped epilogue of volume 4 with Kurumi's main goal. So not a lost cause I guess. Knowing the events of volume 10 makes those parts even more interesting actually.

Next episode, the Yamai twins. Wonder who will gain more fans.

Not bad for anime original. Animation is... sometimes nice looking then most of the time... eh. But, I'm looking forward to more. Also, it was nice that some actual stuff from the volumes was mixed in a bit

Lol, Tohka imagining things and freaking out again.

Looks like those two new girls will be in the next episode. Also it looks like they are gonna fight that Ellen girl at some point.

It's back!

Okay episode. First part was good,and pretty funny. The second was kinda boring. I love Thoka is all, but damn. Kurumi at the end made it for me. The music that played set it up so perfectly. Sounds like Kurumi is getting ready to take down Kotori.

Twins next ep can't wait.

Ugh,Tohka is such an annoyance. Bearing with her is even more irritating than with a baby.
Waiting for the new girls.

A pretty strong first episode in my opinion!

But gosh did they miscast Mikie...if Date A Strike ever gets animated, they are going to need to recast her ._.

Anyway, Yoshino's got a new look going which trumps the old one, and Tohka's tons of fun as usual~

Only 10 episodes...T_T

Did I just see Shido wielding Tohka's sword?
Is he finally going to actually use the spirit powers he is sealing?
If so then get hypeeee!!!

Origami taking Shido to a bathroom stall... always so classy.
Also, dat Kurumi-chan =3

Did they seriously just do a half filler first ep O_o?? And with only 10 eps.

Idiocy has limits -.-

Tohka was cute at first but then the forced drama became annoying. Gotta admit I lol'd a bit at first with how they're syncing stuff with the drama that Yoshino is watching XD And the kiss was nice too ^^

Origami being awesomely aggressive as usual was nice :3

We get to see Westcott and Ellen.

And I partially forgive them since they brought in Kurumi at the end. With some plot development too. So that's her goal? Interesting. KURUMIII!!! >.<

DAT ED though :O

Nxt ep we start following the LN :) Tohka wearing male clothing and the Yamai sisters. Can't wait to see them animated <3 Seems like the animation will be better nxt ep too thankfully.

Not the most impressive, but still solid.
Tohka's naivete is most endearing personally. She might have gone just a tad overboard drawing Sandalphon, but it kinda fits.
Yoshino, adorable as always.
I'm expecting to see PLOT THICKENING soon with Ellen and Westcott making an appearance. Yamai twins' arc will certainly be interesting. Kurumi...yeah, she's gonna be stalking Kotori waiting for a chance to slaughter her and eat Shido, not too surprised xD

An entertaining first episode. I enjoyed it.

Tohka and Yoshino are just as sensitive as ever..
Nice seeing Kotori again. :)

Origami finds the perfect 'place' to talk to Shido alone. XD
Oh, so she doubts what Shido really is..

Tohka finds a suitcase in Shido's room and automatically thinks of the Soap Opera Yoshino is watching. XD
Origami takes the chance to escalate it even more. XD

Tohka' ribbon twitching and her expressions were too cute. :3
There she goes again after Shido. XD

Felt like that drama synchronization was kind of deliberate to extend the episode.. Nonetheless, it was funny.

Westcott and Ellen are probably up to something; checking info on Tohka..
Ellen is mankind's greatest wizard!? We'll probably see some good battles.

Oh yes! That OST! That Kurumi is back!
Her motive is vaguely revealed.

Interesting ending! New characters incoming next episode.

Seeing Tohka panic like that after watching that drama series a few times was funny lol. I guess it got the both of them closer together in the end. Good episode. Can't wait for the next one.

It still surprises me on how flipping bad Funimation video stream is. I mean it's consistently terrible.

Watching only because Origami. Tohka is still annoying to watch. 10 episodes is fine with me. Wasn't that big a fan of the first season. Hope this isn't as awful as IS second season. See what new cast members bring to the party.

Quite a destructive opening I must say. I don't remember Tohko or Yoshino being so reckless and accident-prone. I'm glad Kotori is still normal atleast. And Origami is well Origami. Overly assertive and going strong as usual.

Tohka is a bit more annoying in this season than I remember. Two misunderstandings in one episode? >.> Keep her away from the TV please.

We got our first kiss scene this episode. Feels like season 1 all over again except the ending song is much better!

He should just get it over with and bang Origami, she's practically begging for it.

My guilty pleasure is back, and it is good.

Amazing first episode. My love for Tohka hasn't changed, she's so cuteeee.
And the cherry at the top was Kurumi, my baby, I wasn't expecting to see her in the first episode. Sad we'll have just 10 episodes.

Why come Tohka has to be so ridiculous. I mean, it's bad enough to just jump to extreme conclusions like that... But for a girl to that has the power to level the whole fucking city... You think should would have learned a little self control at this point.

I pity Shido. Maybe it's not to late to tame Kurumi.. At least when you look her in the eyes and tell her that you lover her.... You'll know what time it is...

DAL II is finally here!

Nice episode to tie loose ends from season 1 and start off the new season. Lol all that drama for 3/4th of the ep just from watching soap operas. I knew they were evil. That Kurumi at the end though. Her appearance just made the ep a hundred times better. I felt like they actually tried to make a decent ending this time around. The new ending is better than all three endings from the first season. There were still some still images though.

Overall, this ep gets a 7/10. Not sure if anyone mentioned this, but Tohka's normal voice is finally back. Thank god they didn't use her ova voice, or the rating for this ep would have gone down. Anyway, can't wait for the Yamai sisters next ep.

So glad we got to see Kurumi at the end. For me, she's definitely the most intriguing character.

Pretty decent first episode overall; hope things will start to pick up next episode.

Good episode. Art was a bit sloppy here and there but I didn't really mind that. Good to see all the characters again, especially Kotori :3

I also think that Tohka was going really overboard. But that she is so naive is what makes her adorable. The kiss scene was really good.

Kurumi at the end was amazing. Her voice is so powerful as always.

Can not wait for the next episode to see Yamai twins!
I'm feeling thank you
