My question is how the Nagisa identity exists. Who gave her that name and enroll her in the same school Kimihiko was going to enroll in?

At this point I just have to say "sure" . Of course Siesta not only still existed within that body but also had the ability to revive herself. I still expect Nagisa to get most of the control. Based on the idea that she should get to live a free life and have her school experiences.

Guess this means Siesta won't turn up as the last boss . Or maybe it doesn't. With this show who knows.

If I was taking this show seriously I might have been a bit more frazzled by this episode. At the very least this episode didn't bore me. A lot of crazy stuff along with how it ended. In the end Siesta's OP ability comes through again. Although now I feel a bit silly for thinking about how a team could try to replace Siesta...when Siesta had the ability to come back . Oh sure that means Hel might do so as well and that body turns into a battle royal, but that's fine. Just makes it all the more amusing.

Siesta obviously has a boss, so whoever that is. Fubi seems to have been in on it.

In Siesta's last moments, she cradled Kimizuka in her lap and talked about how much she enjoyed the years they spent together, so much that she doesn't want to die...but despite that, she'll move on and entrust Kimizuka's care to the next life that will take over....Nagisa Natsunagi. Kind of makes me wonder how she came up with that full name completely on the fly .

So Nagisa asked Siesta to take over her body to save Kimizuka, but she says this is the first and only time that's going to happen. Although now that they've established it can happen, I'd be very surprised if it didn't again at least one more time .

Siesta and Kimizuka team-up to take down Chameleon, and they alternate between shooting at him and bickering like an old married couple about stuff in their past they'd rather not dredge up, like all the times they had to go to the bathroom outside because they had no money or whether they actually had sex .

Kimizuka and Siesta were a detective and sidekick...more than friends, less than lovers (although they definitely leaned a little more into the latter in my opinion)...but nevertheless they were the most important people to each other, and those three years together can never be replaced. And to dramatically finish off Chameleon, Siesta casually admits she wouldn't have minded sleeping with him .

"Don't worry, I'm having a great time with these four people I've only known for about a few days" - Kimizuka, it seems .

Well, Char seems to be opening up more to Kimizuka, asking him to come with her to Siesta's grave and all. Also she gets a shower scene at the end, because why not ?

Yui turned out to be surprisingly more fun and useful than I was expecting. I think Kimizuka can feel confident in relying on her .

The one time Kimizuka gets dressed for Nagisa at the bar, she shows up in her normal clothes. They make quite a pair. Although Nagisa may not think she's useful or cut out for this life at all, but Kimizuka believes her emotional intuition and its ability to drive people is worthy of making her a legendary detective, even if it's something that makes her incompatible with Siesta personality wise .

So it's up to Kimi, Yui, Nagisa, and Char to take down SPES? Um...good luck ?

And romantically...well, Nagisa doesn't seem to take it well when Kimizuka mentions when he and Siesta slept in bed together and immediately invites him to her room like she's seducing him, but is that a glimmer of Siesta in Nagisa's eye? Although I guess we'll have to postpone figuring out this relationship dynamic because it's yet another case for the legendary detective and her sidekick .

This show was absurdly bad. The only good thing about it was Siesta. But no worries, we'll see her again in Date a Live.

Wait so what happened to Alicia now? Nagisa took over her? Man thinking about all this is a mess. I should stop.

I don't know if I'd call this the worst of the season, but it was definitely the most overhyped considering all the promotion it got.

I really have to wonder how much the novels are better at this point...

I don't even know what to say after this one .

My feelings are that the show wasn't terrible. But it wasn't nearly as good as I was hoping it would be either. There wasn't a clear sense going into this just what kind of ride it would be. But the double first episode was pretty decent. It just...never quite handled itself well from that point.

Definitely won't miss the show. But it was definitely an experience.

By the same analogy, you are going to see Hel in Date A Live, too.
The story is not that bad. Several peple compare this show to other slow-life genre, such as Hyouka. Some people's problem is they do not expect fighting monsters.

Who does Hel match in DAL? Kurumi ?

I think this show shifted genre's and was never quite consistent enough for anyone to come to proper expectations for this show. Even at the end I'm only marginally sure about what this show is about .
