On the plus side, I got to see the Yamai twins again.

On the negative side, there was Diva.

On the not sure side, there's Natsumi. Doesn't matter, I've been a Date A Live fan from the start. You're not alone OP.

I have not watched the second season or the movie yet. Is it worth it? I thought the first season was okay, but never quite picked up the sequels. Are the light novels a good read?


 No.897863

>>897861

>Movie

The movie is largely irrelevant. Second season cover volumes 5-7. Season 3 will likely consist of volumes 8-11 (hopefully).

>Are the light novels a good read?

There are some things in light novels that aren't done well in the anime, the one that particularly comes to mind is Shido's visit to Origami in volume 2. It's far funnier in the LN. The author has an annoying habit of reiterating in each novel who the characters are and their relation to Shido, albeit briefly, so it feels padded at times. Have low expectations for the writer and you should enjoy it.

Doesn't really add to an overall plot, just a big OVA really. They'll probably keep focusing on the new character this season, so do what you like since it's not like you'll miss any critical backstory.


 No.897870

I was going to make a thread once I'd finished rewatching the first two seasons, since I couldn't for the life of me remember what happened since it's been a very long time, 5 years(!). It's nothing groundbreaking, but it's definitely fun, even when rewatching.

>>897861

If you didn't mind the first season then I'd suggest going on with the second. DAL if nothing else isn't something boring you have to force yourself to watch, once you decide to pick up the first episode it'll probably keep flowing naturally.

Kotori (black) still best girl.

It's basic haremshit so there isn't much to remember aside from the main premise of Shido dating spirits to keep them from killing everyone/getting slaughtered by the AST.

Thats what happens when you ask someone to draw a bunch of characters at once. The first nep game through to victory came from 2010 to 2012 and DAL was first published in early 2011. Without a doubt Tsunako designed all the Neps and DALs at the same time and mixed ideas together. Kotori's body is far better than Noire's.

>To make MC suffer

It changes everyday and the girl who disappears that day is the one Natsumi was impersonating. Discovering this at the climax would make MC realize he doesnt know any of the girls that closely.

>Realistically

The one he dates last. Probably Origami. If the author thinks they are smart they will use Origami's picture. All of the others are close up portraits or side views where a lot of detail is shown. Only Origami's picture has her back toward the camera and the camera is quite far away. It would be easiest for an imposter to pull off such a picture.


 No.899339

>>899337

I actually wonder why didn't they run to Origami first. With her autism she'd notice if someone behaves abnormally, and it would be easy to find out if she is the one being impersonated. MC just has to ask her to strip in the middle of the street, and if she hesitates even for a split second, then it's not her.

I do hope they get this arc done with in the next 2 eps though. Can't wait for Natusmie's reveal. Tohka's still loveable, but as smart as a bag of gravel. But at least we got Yamai twins tonight.
