Shidou was adopted on to the Itsuka family so her real family name should've been Takamiya, since Mana's family name is Takamiya.

Since both of them have no memory before their separation. I doubt that they were both false identity. Furthermore who made them separate in the first place.

The DEM owner guy also called Shidou by Takamiya by mistake before he escape in a hurry with Ellen, so I think that is his real family name.

Those are very short stories about a date with one of the girls to Akihabara. Kurumi's is one where she appeared out of no where and took Shidou to a cosplay store where she tried on various cosplays and made Shidou try one on at the end.

Does that include cross-dressing?.

Spoiler:


Even though its short this took longer than I expected (a good half an hour ). As usual quality is questionable as best since it was rushed through.

I read somewhere they are on the back of special folders given out during a DAL event in Akihabara.

Kotori's story is about going to a DAL-parody event, which I find to be rather ironic.

//
This is something I read elsewhere and agree upon.

On Origami.
She is a tragic character.

She is willing to sacrifice a lot for Shidou, someone whom she see as the sole pillar of emotional support - her purpose of life. In v6 and 7 she acted on her own against orders of the AST and marched heads on against the magicians of DEM, both times pushing her body to its limit and wonder dangerously close to the doors of death. In the recent volumes she also seem to be coming in terms with the idea of non-dangerous spirits: at least she will not try to kill Tohka or Yoshino in their "human" forms (she did not go after any of the spirits in astraldress form in the chaos of v6 and 7, but I am hesitant in drawing conclusion there).

Her love for Shidou is not shallow as well. It is hinted that Origami had her eyes on Shidou from a long time ago and is genuinely attracted to him like a regular girl (most of the spirits have a unique case). Through all this time her affection has gone unnoticed and all she can do is keep it to herself.

What makes this sad is that I don't think Shidou has any romantic feelings towards her at all (in fact, Shidou tried to clear up the mistake during Origami's short story and the crew tried various way to make Origami dump Shidou). If anything, I suspect Shidou treat her as more as a classmate-with-misunderstanding than even a friend. All the risks Origami took in v6 and 7 are outside of Shidou's view: while people may tell him about Origami's courage and sacrifices later, atm he seems to have no idea what went on behind the scene. He is also unawared of his role and important to Origami.

In the later volumes, as a reader I find a lot of her awesomeness got overshadowed by characters such as Kurumi and Miku. She also did not receive a Date A Akirabara story... maybe the author just loves to abuse her.

One thing of note:
Origami, similar to all the spirits, share a name with a numerical value. One wonders if the "phantom" will approach her during a moment of desperation.

I wonder if there are more foreshadowing scenes about that.

Too sad for Origami since Shido only seems to be Seirei-philic.

So the rumor goes that the game will have pregnancy ends, for whatever the reason- And that concept just seems extremely odd and out of place for this series.

Highly amused about the game, I'm assuming its a VN, so I'm hoping that the crew will make suggestion that leads to bad ends like in the series

The things I don't really like about the Shidou-Tohka pairing:
- Shidou relied heavily on external aid to win Tohka's affection. In a way, the start of their relationship "was all but a lie". It is the AI+crew on Fraxinus that did most of the work.
- This is further carried on later novels: Tohka becomes unhappy = unstable mood whenever Shidou ignores her. Since having a backflow of spirit power is quite dangerous, I feel as if Shidou is being blackmailed into complying Tohka's wishes. Fortunately for Tohka, Shidou is a nice guy and rarely feels annoyed/frustrated by that. Imagine how Shidou will feel if he has his eyes on another girl and Tohka just refuse to let go! (This is also a reason why I want to see Shidou genuinely fall for someone else: Tohka must learn).
- Tohka has this extremely strong unquestionable love for Shidou original from their initial few meetings. I see her as a rather naive child-like girl who knows nothing relationship wise beside "I just want to be together with Shidou, else I will be unhappy". Her reason for loving Shidou, while is shared by other heroines, feels relatively weaker and more shallow.
- I also feel their relationship advance over time just because the two of them are always together.

Of all the heroines so far, I think Miku by far has the best "route": she started off with a very strong distaste in men and is 200% yuri. Through Shidou's (+Shiori's) interaction (and with Kurumi's help), he is able to open her heart and gave her a valid reason to fall in love of him, shown through both words and action.

Kurumi also does not disappoint, originally seeing Shidou as nothing but prey, Shidou's will to protect all spirits and to save her was able to reach into her dark heart.

Poor Origami (see previous post) . Oh we have yet to have her appear on the cover. I can see her blackmailing Shidou if she ever gets turned into a spirit. "I will only let you kiss me if you sign this marriage registration and make out with me tonight".

Kotori is also a loser in the battle. Her live with her favorite onii-chan got disrupted by all the spirits. Her spirit's power has always been with Shidou and protected him from all sorts of dangers, and her command over Fraxinus is all for the sake of Shidou. Yet at the end she gets no credit for all the things she has done even though she is right beside him all along.

I kinda remember the external aid gave Shidou more problems than help too lol. I won't say that their relationship at the start is a lie, since Shidou was the one who chose to help her and the first human who refused to deny her existence.

Rather than Shidou being "blackmailed" by Tohka's power reversal, he is being blackmailed by Kotori. He is genuinely concerned about Tohka when she locked herself in during Yoshino's arc.

I also think Kotori is doomed at the start, since she is always sister-zoned.

Origami's Spirit Conquest Events->Jealousy from all the other spirits ->end of the world
