Tohka is just too cute...

She takes the "two-timing" so easily and actually quite calm with humor, LOL.

It's like she either believes or actually allow Shido to "get with" other girls (might be because she's used to it? where Origami is constantly trying to "get with Shido", LOL)



Hmmm... BUNNY!!!

Now I know why this show's called Date A Live, poor Shido... he has to go the harem route, tho... it doesn't look like anyone is hating it tho, LOL. (maybe Tohka, but her jealousy look so awesome and fun)



As for that DC...

Spoiler for small wall-o-text:
So far the DC features, infodump about spirits, Origami's tragic story which was already hinted before and the effects of abusing Origami's power suit.


They don't just cut material for the heck of it but because of the limited timeslot for TV shows. Shows like Fate/zero did it before(King's meeting) and Shaft do that as well with Denpa Onna(added about 6 minutes on one episode).

A blog article I came across showing a closer look at some of the items in the volume 1 BD/DVD among other things.

Dakimakura Art for you dakimakura lovers

Spoiler for Origami's Dakimakura Art (NSFW):


imo, Tobiichi's is the best cuz dat ass and underboob. Looks like she is trying very hard to get Shido's attention by being this sexy. Too bad he is too busy looking at the other spirits can't wait to see Kurumi's in the near future.

So kind of slightly off topic but:
I know some have issues with Shidou how he's not "strong" and is seemingly a weakling with no spine. However, so far he has shown that if he wants it, he goes and try to get it no matter the cost. He's quite decisive of his choice and follows through. Can you really say that he truly is a spineless weakling? I don't think so.

Anyways... those dakimakura have something that's off about them. They're not bad but they're not exactly great either...

Perhaps . . . what people are complaining about are neither because he's weakling or spineless, but because he's just too bland and plain as a character, typical of old-school harem lead a-la Love Hina/Ah My Goddess wuss-tier. Now, just compare him with Yokodera or Hachiman from Henneko and Oregairu. Those two are also weakling and spineless, yet they're very fun to watch and able to stand as characters with solid personality on their own right.

But who cares about him. This is harem, what matters is the heroines after all

Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.

I have to be honest, he actually had his own moments, but it's all just fell flat due to some gary stu moments and the plot that seemingly only favors him to conveniently get the girls (Yeah, i know this is harem anime, but still . . ). Now, you can overcome that with heroines and story, but the show never really managed much there. The girls character are flat and one-dimensional. They were never developed into anything who can hook us and give us deep empathy (Dunno how this works on LN thugh). All they were really good for was the "perfect otherworldly girls" caricature.

As a result the show has given me zero motivation to root for them or even care that the protagonist is getting them. All the character developments was just too shallow for standard harem show.

I don't wanna start debating here, but feel free to comment though

Hmm... yeah that makes sense. He's a bit bland and that is an issue.

@ Reek of Blood
Lol! You said you're not starting a debate but it almost seems like you're trying to provoke one haha. But anyways, perhaps you should try reading the novels and see how you like it compared to the anime. I'm also one of those who's quite bothered by the amount of stuff that they cut out which is important for the details of the characters... but... I'm still enjoying the anime quite a bit too.

Date a Live 05 - Operation Origami's House

I find the show's doing a pretty good job with its blending of tones so far, often putting the dramatic and the comedic together in ways that benefit both. The scene in Origami's house stands out the most. A mission to retrieve Yoshino's lucky blanket... that involves Origami in a maid outfit... but also reveals exactly how she views her mission. I'm also liking that the spirits are getting character songs. Tohka had hers in her arc, and Yoshino's was this week's ED. I wonder when those are going to be released. I'm sure the apartment complex will provide many more hijinks. And I don't mind a hot springs episode coming after these past two arcs. It looks like it was a good break point, and letting the audience's mind cool down a bit before going full swing into Kurumi's arc (who looks to be a little more high-stakes than the other two) is probably a good idea.

This only dakimakura that I have any interest in, due the the fact that it has my beloved Tohka on it.

I suppose I could say I was speaking metaphorically, but it's a little late for that now. Security blanket might've conveyed it better. Either way, it was an entertaining scene.

I find it funny how many bite marks there are on Tohka's pillow. I bet she thought it was a giant sasauge and that is why she had to have it

I feel that Date A Live spends alot of time showing characters doing things, but barely any time explaining why they do things.

Take, for instance, it's really bad how the anime handled the scene Shido visited Origami at her apartment. The way she jumps at him just come across as someone really desperate. Instead of wondering why she took Yoshino's hand-puppet, I was taken aback and began to wonder why she's acting like a slut. Perhaps there are good reasons why she's behaving like that, or perhaps the anime is just treating the viewers to Origami fan-service, I don't know.

Then we have Shido collecting pokemons. Gotta catch them all! Why is he so into collecting these pokemon girls that he's willing to risk life and limb? What is Tohka and Yoshino to him? Is he just such a naturally wonderful guy that he'll put his life at risk for every and any damsel in distress he comes across?

When the big reveal came in the form of Commander Kotori letting slip he's connected to spirits, I was thinking, "Oh good, finally we'll have some real answers!" Nope, Mr Wonderful and Nice Guy just run into a hail of shotgun pellets to collect the next pokemon. Oh well, at least Tohka's character design is great.
