I think I might pick up Hitsugi no Chaika. Before I knew it, there happen to be more little girls named Chaika’s. Different colors, different personalities, and apparently different chest sizes. It’s like a doll collection. Ahem. Anyway, the fan-favorite girl returns and we plow through the ending scenes and beginning scenes of Volume 6 and 7 respectively. Get onboard folks, the “high point” of the series is getting started.
Well that is of course you aren’t keeping up with the novels since Volume 10 turned stuff real serious again. On a much more serious note too, I won’t spoil it but I’m pretty sure you would be if you saw the cover for Volume 10.
Anyways, guess who’s back.

Love how Yoshino is just there marathoning a soap opera and showing up at least once every episode. Hence the reason why she’s the featured image nearly everytime.
The twins arc come to close as expected. The LN’s had a pretty hectic time with the entire fighting portion of this arc but I think the anime did a good job on keeping a lot of scenes close together to avoid too much rushing. I felt like the Twins fighting themselves lasted a lot longer but they barely do any damage to each other so I guess we really didn’t need too many pointless action scenes.
To make up for the horrendous filler episode, and the double fanservice episodes we got ourselves a complete focus on the action. Let’s get right into it.

I feared the adaptation of the following scenes because I knew it would mean some serious amounts of screencap hunting. Not that I have any problems with fanservice that but DAMN, this is around Light’s level of screencap (if you even remember him). What makes it even worse is that they’re twins, and being the person I am, I require both their screencaps and the corresponding picture of the other twin as well. What I just said may not make sense so to put it simply: the twins essentially double the amount of pics unless they’re together for a lot of the scenes. Anyways, my LN to Anime adaptation senses tell me that the twins arc will be over next episode. Explanations will be brief but will be at the end.
So, prepare for fanservice folks
and make it double

I mentioned before that I really didn’t need to go over a recap/filler episode so I consider this to be the real start of the Date A Live for this season.
What can I say, Date A Live has my enormously biased opinion because I worship the artist Tsunako and her character designs. Its story isn’t anything new but just for the pure reason of liking the way everybody looks is the reason I love it. While it’s a shallow reason, the series has grown on me immensely during the time I had fawning over its art.
So the first season left off pretty nicely at the end of Volume 4 and now we return to Volume 5.
Looking back at this post now, I amaze myself how I can drag out such a simple series with my typing.
