I don't want to make a super long reply to your post and get started on a number of things, but I hope you get my point.
I have never watched or read that anime/LN. And I don't know what you did to criticize it. So no, I don't understand your point but in the big picture it's probably not important that I do.

You're free to hate on Date A Live as much as you want, but if you want to look informed you need to use better examples than DxD.


EDIT: If the point you're making is a light novel vs anime issue, then I do agree that sometimes anime don't do source material justice. Date A Live's anime staff are trying to cram four light novels into 12 episodes. A number of things are going to get lost in the translation from one format to another. I do think the staff is doing a better than average job at the process though, keeping what's important and their pacing has improved since ep 1.

EDIT2: Also the mods are doing a lot of work on this thread.

Episode 3

-'Now, Shido's wallet is being tested.'
With Ratatosk and a whole convertible city backing him, really?

-Though I question some BGM choices, I thought this episode was okay. Though it leaves a few unresolved plot points.

-Miss Majihiku is getting on my nerves.

-And I see the reason for Tohka's INT stat a few pages back. But it's cute and dere, so whatever~

-It's proved that red ones are three times faster... a Gundam reference now?! -.-

-It seems they have been preparing this for some time, haven't they? A whole city that can be converted into dating (and bedding) paradise?!

-I have to question their their tactic: Through her stomach, really?
Though it did work, I guess.

-The last part was... weird. Not really explained, kind of like it just gave the episode quick conclusion and that's it.

-Shido probably was returned to home base and then punted off the exit.

I kinda gave up just decided to watch it for its romcom elements. :P

What? She's like the whole reason why the trio is funny! Without her they have no identity! It's like Tonomachi and his unabashed love of digital girls.

I'm sure those blogs are the same blogs that praise some series just by watching their first episodes too. I still fondly remember how everyone thought Kotoura-san was going to be remotely good just because the first 5 minutes of the first episode apparently left a strong impression or something through one of the most hilariously forced drama sequences ever.

ironically the problem with that is very few anime's get to the good part after 3 episodes and sometimes you need that first 4 or 5 to get going. Naruto Bleach and One piece are relatively generic after the first 3 episodes and they are the big 3 Even Dragon ball Z which many argue is the best anime ever after 3 episodes is still pretty boring. But as you say 3 episodes isn't good enough. Code Breaker was ruined because they revealed so much early that it ruined the fun of the show. Hagure Yuusha may not get a 2nd season because of that rule cause in the first 3 episodes our guys just a perv sadly that rule is the ruin of anime and people should give it at least 4 or 5 episodes. Although some harems need more cause you need to introduce everyone unless its one of those based off of dating sims which 3 episodes is just the first arc. This one suffers from a similar dating sim esque fate where 3 episodes is the first girl or something like that

Only in animes are girls so easily and readily bribed by snacks.

The TV version of ep 4 hasn't aired yet, correct? In that case you're supposed to put all that in spoiler tags.

(The mod staff must hate this thread)

They should just seriously make a separate sub-forum for this thread.
