Episode 13 (OVA 1)

Oh, that was funny. Shido trying to spoiler[do a terrible date] was great, the spoiler[purposely terrible decisions] reminded me of course reminded me of the current airing Noucome, all we needed was a big "erabe", we need a crossover. I am not on team Origami, but she is just too funny when used in the deadpan way that she is not affected, and seeing her meet them. Laughing I was shouting at my computer that he would be able to choose number 3.

I can understand Tohka getting a phone might be a step for her. But where did she get a spoiler[grenade] from?

And the ED seemed to sound like the ED from episode one, Hatsukoi Winding Road, which I found hilarious then and now for how disinterested it sounds. Mayhaps part of the extended version. The OP is always awesome, and the talk at the beginning of it, "I can't stop the loneliness.", lol.

Only down side, not enough Kurumi, we definitely need more of her. There is another season coming, so yay.

I didn't realize how much I missed Origami until I saw this OVA, She's just too amazing! I felt so bad for her though :/ spoiler[Especially when she tried so many times to get Shido that bear (compare how the machine is supposed to be to how messy Origami made it with her multiple attempts),] I especially loved the ending though. spoiler[When Origami gave him the bear,] I was "Oh, that's kind of cute" and then when she spoiler[smiled and said they could match now,] I immediately went "Aaaaaaaawwwwwwwww! Too CUte!!!" (Which is something I rarely do). Great OVA. It has me looking forward to the next season.

OK, I just caught up to this and I must say its been a mixed bag.

I am beginning to believe that mecha + magic girl + harem is just never going to mix well. DAL is a good example of a salad with just too many ingredients.

As far as male leads for a harem are concerned, I think Shido is actually far less tiresome than average. Compare him with that dolt from Infinite Stratos (Season 2). At least Shido attempts to drive the romantic story now and then rather than just being dragged along.

Maybe a little better than decent, but not much more.

What, I am the first to talk about second season?

Season 2, Episode 1

Laughing Oh great to have some Origami, no other harem member is like her. Mixed with Date A Live's mix of comedy and drama from a spoiler[terrible soap opera], and it is a good return episode. Also Kurumi will still be involved so good, some hint towards her motive.

I am guessing from the preview that Shido is going to start his tough challenge of spoiler[charming twins].

Once again we learn that the force that will lead to the destruction of humanity is spoiler[television].

So far s2 is more of the same, but in a good way. I'm looking forward to the next ep because I've spoiler[been interested in those two] since the OVA. Looks like the overall plot will come to more focus this time too.

Oh, Shido, you poor poor son of a...

I didn't expect her to take off her panties like that. And she be trolling poor Tohka.

I have to say that I am more than a little tired of anime like this that drives all the action, drama and comedy from having the male harem lead (in this case Shido) being a total idiot over the most obvious things.

Oh well I guess that just comes with the territory.

I spotted Kurumi!!! *puts on a grin*

The first episode was kinda meh imo, at least the first half. The drama felt out of place and cheesy. I did enjoy some aspects of the humor though but it's probably something I'll forget easily. spoiler[The PV indicates the arrival of not one but two new characters]. This should be fun, hopefully.
