The First Release Of Date A Live
Tokyo MX broadcasted the first season of Date A Live on April 6, 2013. The source material for this anime is a series of light novels with the same title, written by Koshi Tachibana. The first season covered 1 – 4 volumes of the light novels.
Anime International Company produced the series and Keitaro Motonaga directed it.
The first, second, and third seasons-in the three seasons, the series had 12, 10, and 12 episodes respectively.
What Happened In The Previous Seasons?
In Date A Live Season 1, after a devastating earthquake, the center of Eurasia became a ruin. Again 30 years later, Shido and Kotori witnessed the same thing. Shido came to know that there were some spirits who caused these quakes unknowingly.
So, to save the earth, he had to make the spirits fall in love with him, to block the power of the spirits.
Shido joined Ratatoskr and started to have training where Kotori was the commander.
In a series of events, he fought with the Anti Spirit Team (AST), who were against saving the spirits. And eventually came close to making Tohka, a spirit, fall in love with him.
In Date A Live Season 2, Shido continued his mission to date the spirits and seal their power by kissing them in the end. Ellen from the Bandersnatch Unit captured Tohka and tortured her, later Shido rescued Tohka.
Kotori learned that Shido exhibited one of the spirits’ powers. Meanwhile, a new spirit emerged named Diva who was more challenging to win over, as she hated all men. Jessica ordered the AST to abduct Tohka and Shido. In the end, Shido succeeded to seal the power of Diva.
In Date A Live Season 3, a new spirit called Natsumi aka Witch appeared and tried to destroy Shido’s life. Natsumi tried to ruin his reputation in skill by harming the teachers and students in the disguise of Shido. Shido found out about Natsumi’s disguise temporarily before she transformed the spirits into child versions.
A while after, Natsumi befriended them and agreed to be sealed by Shido. Shido collapsed and generated abnormal spirit power that could create an earthquake more powerful than that which happened 30 years ago. Tohka realized that she was truly in love with him and after she kissed him, Shido regained his normal power.
What Is The Storyline For Date A Live Season 4?
The producers have not revealed the storyline yet. Though we can guess what Date A Live Season 4 will focus on. As the previous seasons followed the light novel series up to volume 13, season 4 will continue from volume 14 to the last 5 volumes.
