With useless fillers out the way, we enter Kurumi’s arc. Prepare for pretty black haired girl with bangs and tons of murderous blood. I completely rushed through this because nothing happened that hasn’t been seen already. New encounter, dates, wooing, but for once, the target seems well versed in the human world. Then we have a little sister fight going on, oh boy.
To get right into it, we’re introduced to another AST member who is armed with a different styled armor. Origami gets into a serious fight with her during training sessions. Later, briefing begins and the girl recognizes Shidou from a video and calls him her brother. Origami inquires her about this and we got ourselves an insignificant conspiracy
A curious break from the regular light novel path. I’m guessing they are trying to save up for the last Spirit that the anime will showcase while curiously they only cared for Tohka for 3 episodes and Yoshino for 2. I can only imagine that they’re gonna pull off…but as long as they don’t give an anime-exclusive end, I will be…quenched…
It’s quite the short post and the pics are low-res but hey, hopefully next week, we’ll go back to the regular formula
Seeing as though how I’m covering the stuff from two weeks ago coupled with the stuff from last week, I decided that instead of just compiling it all in one post that will predictably move me back another week, I decided to just tackle the episodes and post them seperately.
So in the future, if I’m up to schedule, I will be using the Weekly Recap format, and as shown here: this will be the regular episodic style.
In this case, I was able to finish Date A Live a lot quicker than the rest. The reason behind that being Date A Live’s rushed nature. To be honest, DAL right here happens to the very few times I actually read the light novel before watching the anime (thats how far my love goes to Tsunako) and from that experience, I can say that the light novel is far superior than the anime (which honestly is not “too” much). The key point is of course the term “rushed” and the anime adaptation is without a doubt extremely rushed. From the looks of it though, I feel like we’re only going to get to the 3rd or the 4th spirit. Light novel adaptations tend to be less likely given an anime-original (usually bullshit) ending so at the very least, I can say I’ll be curious to see how they pull this one off.
Anyways, let’s move on shall we?
The Pictures for episode 5 are absolute shit in quality so they will be uploaded at a later time.
