Date A Live [Light Novel]
 
Synopsis from Baka-Tsuki:

Quote:

April 10th. Yesterday was the last day of spring vacation, so starting this morning it was a school day. After being woken up by his cute little sister, Itsuka Shidou believed that it would be the start of another normal day. As for predicting the chance meeting with the girl who called herself a spirit......

Along with a sudden shockwave, the townscape vanished without a trace. In a corner of the street which had now become a crater, the girl was there.

"—You, have you come to kill me too?"

She is the disaster that will destroy humanity, a monster of unknown origin, and a being rejected by the world. There are only two ways to stop this girl: annihilation, and conversation. His little sister Kotori, wrapped in a military uniform, thus said to Shidou: "Since it's like this, just go date her, and make the spirit fall for you!" "Wh.. whaaaaaaaat!?" Enter a new age of boy meets girl!!

I've read the first translated chapter and found it good too.

Also this is the series that good an anime faster than any other that I've remember, with only two volumes the anime was anounced. Now the series has three volumes.

From cute loli to sadistic loli, the change was too great. And she was cute in the first chapter too. What a bummer.

But it's an interesting development nevertheless.

Ah this is good stuff if your looking for a light read..

Athena 2012-01-01 21:32

BTW, it's like The World God Only Knows-style, but with a typical novel protagonist and a sadistic lil' sis.

whos gonna animate it?

I had read the first volume somewhere else and the story is quite good. The story is basically like playing Galgame in real life, quite similar to TWOGK.

Basically, the spirits in this series are the powerful existances from other dimensions. Once they arrive in the real world, there will be massive damage to the surroundings. There are two approaches as to how to deal with the spirits. Some people choose and insist to fight the spirits directly while other set of people believe that the best way is that someone going for a date with the spirit and calm it down so that it would not cause any more danger to the society.
The story follows Shidou the protagonist as he is forcibly recruited by an organisation to try to have a date with a spirit that appeared recently.

Athena 2012-01-02 09:35

Actually, I'm not sure why, but from what his sister said,
Spoiler for V1:


And the force group's name is AST, Anti-Spirit Team.

Watching the CM on ANN's article.

The voice seems familiar. If it's who I think it is, I'm wondering whether she'll voice the main heroine or not.

The voice sounds familiar to me too..,normally, that kind of voice belong to 'long-haired-girls'. Just an intuition though.

The voice is Kobayashi Yuu.

Magin 2012-01-02 18:26

... so am I the only one who upon seeing the volume covers thought "great, not just another killer-looking loli, but one that's practically a clone of Shana (in terms of looks) too"?

Is there a source for the cast? Going by ear I would have guessed Marina Inoue.

Actually, she reminded me of Houki in IS because of her dress, for the first, though the third does look like shana.

Chaos2Frozen 2012-01-03 00:40

Last time I've checked, long black hair isn't trademarked to Shana...

Though she knows how to make it popular. :D

Magin 2012-01-03 00:57

Long black hair+ red eyes (and the color red in general) do tend to associate with Shana...

and I can some similarity to Houki in the first one... actually, in the third it looked a lot like Shana; it took me a moment to realize that I was actually thinking of Alice from Pandora Hearts in comparison to the first

Athena 2012-01-03 07:12

I thought of Alice too, but her face is way too devilish for that.

Volume 2 reminds menof a character, though I can't get my hand on her name.
