First Impressions – Date A Live

I hope the art is as awesome as this one

Itsuka Shido is a high school boy. On the last day of the spring holidays, an explosion destroys the town and a girl in armor appears in front of him. Shido’s sister-in-law, Kotori, tells him that the girl is called “Special Disastrous Designated Creature: Spirit”, which causes a time space quake. Kotori disclosed that she is the commander of the anti-spirit organization Ratatosk and orders him to go out on a date with the spirit girl. Kotori says, “I don’t ask you to beat the spirit. Just let her fall in love with you and save the world.” (Source: MAL)


I wasted my precious 23 minutes trying to find out what’s good in this anime. I failed BIGTIME. After the first Kotori panty scene, I felt the urge to stop the video and forget about it. However, I gave it another chance. But everything got worse from there onwards and the supposedly 23-minute episode felt like an hour of boredom. We have an annoying imouto who turned out to be a captain or whatsoever of an organization aiming to slaughter the “Spirit” who causes the destructive space quakes. Nice try. We also have the usual bland male protagonist who will eventually create his own little harem.


I’m not into this kind of show. Dropped.
