Tsunako is a pretty good character designer.
Tachibana is a pretty awful writer.

I wonder what the hook was. Every passing volume, I wonder what this series could've been if it was written by someone competent, with the same premise and all. That's a pleasant thought.

After deciding to catch up to the most recent volume, I can pretty much guarantee that the series isn't going to get better. This is a pretty odd series in that it presents itself as a parody of a typical harem genre formula, yet it strives to be one at the same time. At first this seemed like a very read more

This is my first review, so I hope it you can take it as an idea of how this novel ranks!

Originally I got into the Date A Live series starting with the Dubbed Anime release in 2013 when Funimation released the DVD set. Since then because of curiously I wanted to keep up with the story from reading the Novel.

It should be noted that there are 11 Volumes in this series with more coming in the future, however if you wish to watch the anime, know that...

Volumes 1-4 Cover the first season
Volumes 5-7 Cover the second season
Volumes 8-9 and 10-11 cover unique arcs, however read more

DAL (Date a Live) has a very silly premise, we all have to agree that the concept is fairly unrealistic and dumb if you force yourself to compare it to reality, BUT I m expecting that anyone already knowledgeable of the harem genre can bypass such trivial matters.
I have read my fair share of harem light novels, what I expect the most out of them is pure enjoyment, silly comedy and the wish fulfillement from being surround by so many cuties!
If one wants to write a sucessfull harem series, the criteria above has to be meet, the plot can suffer a bit here and there, read more

Bem, Date a Live é a prova de que o ruim na obra não é o clichê em si, mas sim a forma como ele é utilizado.
Começa com algo simples, algo que parece que se tornará com um harém comum com o protagonista arranjando garotas toda hora, mas as coisas mudam ainda no volume 3, onde muda o ritmo da história pra apresentar as primeiras revelações importantes da história, mas apresentando a mesma forma de solucionar as coisas mostradas anteriormente.
A partir daí, o autor resolve dar mais seriedade a história, mantendo o mesmo padrão de começo, meio e fim dos volumes anteriores, sempre adicionando aos read more
