“Date A Live” light novel series got its start in March 19, 2011, and it has been going strong ever since. The novels are written by Koshi Tachibana, illustrated by Tsunako and published by Fujimi Shobo. “Date A Live” anime television series, which is set to premiere this month, is directed by Keitaro Motonaga and written by Hideki Shirane. A new promotional video was recently released featuring Kurumi Tokisaki. The character looks devilish but intriguing at the same time, a character that will surely be hard to forget due to the creative physical design.
Thirty years before a strange phenomena called a “spacequake” devastated the center of Eurasia, claiming the lives of at least 150 million people. Since then, smaller spacequakes plague the world on a irregular basis. Shidō Itsuka, a seemingly ordinary high schooler comes across a mysterious girl at the ground zero of a spacequake and learns from his sister Kotori she is one of the “Spirits” who are the real cause of the spacequakes that occur when they manifest themselves in the world. He also learns that Kotori is the captain of the airship Ratatoskr and recruits him to make use of his mysterious ability to seal the Spirits’ powers and stop them from being a threat to mankind. However, there is a catch: to seal a Spirit, he must make her fall in love with him.
