Description: 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 feel kind of sad wasting time reading this. 

This manga is not good. it is quite bad. i felt embarrassed for the poor assistants that helped ink this, this book is six chapters of doing nothing except degrading a man who was caring, loving and a great brother. hell I empathized with him even. I  likened this the sponge bob, squid ward torture porn episode. I would  pay real money to see the little shit of a sister get hoisted by her own petard. bad writing, marring a decent quality art job.

This author has no idea how to introduce a story. Seems like an amusing read but I really don't like this pacing.

guess what

Agreed, that's an even bigger load of irony.

The whole Volume is one big load of irony.

Guess we will have to wait for the translation

please use spoiler tags.................... cause people like me don't want to find out information like when we are not at that part of the story/anime.

I find it complete Irony that she gets Metatron... The author isn't being very subtle. <_<

Volume 10 of the LN, called "Tobiichi angel" got released on the 20th...

It will take a while till Baka tsuki translates it, but the cover image... Oh the irony

That was actually one of the best light novel based mangas I've read, ready to try out the actual text now

...

oh, that one ... I almost think this one ...

http://99mh.com/comic/22199/

lolz ...

well, I hope someone willing to take it into their project ...

(also kinda wonder if this old version will get continued or not)

...

BTW, it seems there's project to create another Date A Live manga adaptation ...

I hope it will appear soon ...

It already started, but it doesn't look like any scanlators picked it up.

I can give you a link to the a raw download I got though.

 

If you ask me, it looks more like a manga adaption of the anime that an adaption of the light novel -.-

Season 2 of the anime is getting started soon too, most likely in april and it will cover the volumes 5, 6 and 7 and will most likely have 12 or so episodes.

Most likely it won't cover the "Natsumi" arc because its conclusion in the LN was released in late December and the anime was already in production by then. 

 

 

What will be in the episodes?

first 3-4 episodes will cover the "Yamai tempest" will cover Volume 5, the "Yamai tempest" arc, after that a nice side story episode much like episode 6 "hot springs of love" back in season 1 (that was one of my favorite episodes in the anime thanks to the lolz) and the remaining episodes will get the "miku lily"/"Miku truth" arcs.

 

 

And to the ones who haven't read the LN yet:

In season 2 we will finally see the Fraxinus actually do "something" aside from being an invisible base of operations and a convenient means of transport. 

Also, we will get a better look at what the Fraxinus looks like from the outside (normally you can only see the shilouette since it is invisible) and it was only shown for a moment in the last episode and looks differently from what it looks like in the LN:

 

This is what the fraxinus is supposed to look like in the light novel, and it also includes how large it is (252m long)

Spoiler

 

This is the Fraxinus in the anime, which looks quite differently compared to the LN one. You can only see this for a second though

Spoiler

 

To any of you who haven't read the light novel yet and are interested, try Baka-Tsuki

You shouldn't talk about compyright on a page that slaps copyright in the face -.-

 

If downloading Anime that's for free anyways would be illegal, what do you think are we doing right now?

We are reading Manga for free which wasn't intended to be viewed for free :(

 

Well, we are here because either there is no translation of the manga into your language (or at least in2 english) OR because you simply can't get your hands on it in your country.

Official translations into any language other than english sound like crap

 

I usually speak german, but after reading a manga translated into german I switched to english immediately

and at least 75% of ALL PEOPLE who visit online readers for Manga are doing it because it is for free, nothing more, nothing less, they are simply unwilling to pay for manga, sugarcoating things won't help either

 

Manga authors simply don't really put much effort into stopping scanlation because:

-) They can't sell manga outside of Japan anyways and the market for manga outside of Japan is growing, but still quite small

-) The stereotype of Manga/Anime being "Japanese cartoons for children" (yeah, we all know that is NOT true, if you disagree, go and read/watch Elfen Lied)

-) Scanlation is actually an advantage for Manga authors as it spreads their work to another country so that people would become interested in it and buy it

-) Same as with piracy in general- TOO MANY people do it and the market for Manga is too small to bother with large scaled operations against scanlation anyways

   And catching EVERY person who reads/downloads Manga? Good luck with that, it may sound nice and easy in theory, but getting that going in EVERY country

   for something that isn't sold in the country anyways is a waste of money so dealing with scanlation is VERY low on the priority list of copyright ppl

 

MY PARADOX! IT BURNS! OH GAWD! I FEEL SO STUPID NOT SEEING THAT ;_;

I'm calling BS on this manga... It could have been an interesting concept, but no, it just had to became an other idiotic excuse for a story. *sigh* I can't even take this one seriously.

It's a LN adaption 

Go, read the LN at Baka-Tsuki and say that again

I know anime's are free to watch (On tv and all) but wouldn't this be illegal? I don't feel like being slammed with a giant ass fine...

 

And god damn episode 9 >:C

HQ subs?

 

The good guy on youtube got Copyright'd ^^

I still don't get it why some1 would be mad about copyright when someone uploads a video that was free to watch on television anyways

 

Well, nevermind, there are some good anime download sites around, I use Animetake.com (Date a live should be on the list there)

Good quality and subs too ;)

 

There is no need for any form of payment or subscription for downloading the HD episodes, most anime watching sites ask you to register for some stupid paid subscription- if you are asked to do that- go to Animetake.com or similar sites, there you can download HD episodes without bothering with such stupid nonsense. 

 

 

There are many other Animes too for download ;)

Just one advice when downloading anime from some site- check it with your virus protection program, just in case. Doesn't take long and can spare you LOTS of trouble if there actually IS a virus/trojan/whatever on the file

...

hmm, I'll just wait the HQ subs ...

I haven't read the LN so I don't know what will happen ...

the date in anime is quite good tough, the situation even the BGM and BGS ... even with all comedy, it feels good ...

nicely done ...

 

rewatching ep 04 anime multiple times ... now I'm convinced about Origami is somekind of stalker ... lolz ...

plenty variation of kuudere in manga / anime world ...

(pervert, seducer, and now a stalker ...)

http://vatoto.com/comic/_/comics/date-a-origami-r6566

 

now I listening the lyric OP in anime ...

"are you the one who will fill the gap which appear in my heart" ...

no wonder sometimes it feels like TWGOK so much ... lolz ...

hoping someone translate lyric for BGM and OP, romanji and the english (for a full long version)

 

BTW, there's rumor TWGOK anime might start after this anime has ended ...

(they don't really want to be compared by each other)

ep 02 anime ...

it feels like strange version from TWGOK ... lololol ...

Don't worry, it won't last like that^^

 

But what REALLY surprises me is that in episode 3 Origami isn't even putting up a fight against Tohka^^

She is just kneeling there, not moving from the shock of shooting Shidou while Tohka attacks her and then, as soon as her HUGE sword touches her shield, she goes down... here is a quote from the LN (from Baka- Tsuki)

 

Spoiler

 

Spoiler

 

Soo, my analysis:

The AST didn't really leave Origami alone (like it was in the anime), they simply couldn't even get Tohka's attention

 

Origami DID move around in order to not get killed

 

And if you are wondering about why Shidou could drop from the Fraxinus in the first place (the Fraxinus usually holds at 15.000m altitude), it was lowered SIGNIFICANTLY for the transport so that they were at about one kilometer height

 

Tohka could catch Shidou because the "Realizer" of the Fraxinus was slowing down his fall (and it also prevented the two of them dropping down like stones since Tohka lost her powers)

 

The whole AST couldn't really confirm wtf just happend because they were busy to NOT get too close to Tohka. After the weekend Tohka transferred to Shidou's school (much to Origami's dismay). Origami indeed reported it to the AST, but they couldn't detect a spirit reading--> Origami couldn't do a thing
