The third character promotional video for the Date A Live television anime aired in Japan on Friday. The video features the spirit girl who steals lives, Kurumi Tokisaki, voiced by Asami Sanada.
The first promotional video featured Tohka Yatogami (Marina Inoue). One final "all characters" promo remains to air.
The anime is an adaptation of Kōshi Tachibana's Date A Live light novel series. In the story, a boy named Sido (Shidō) Itsuka meets a spirit girl who has been rejected by a devastated world. The girl, who Sido names "Tohka," happens to have wiped out much of humanity 30 years ago, and now she is back. The only way to stop her is to date her.
Keitaro Motonaga (Getbackers, Jormungand) is directing the anime at AIC Plus+ with visual director Hisashi Saito (Haganai, Heaven's Lost Property). Hideki Shirane (Hayate the Combat Butler!!, Queen's Blade: Rebellion) is charge of the series scripts, and Takaaki Suzuki (Strike Witches, Last Exile) is advising on the world setting, as he has done other anime and manga. Satoshi Ishino (Excel Saga, Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu) is designing the characters based on Tsunako's original novel illustrations. Mika Akitaka (Martian Successor Nadesico, Galaxy Fraulein Yuna) is designing the mecha, and Go Sakabe (Gosick theme songs) is scoring the soundtrack with sound director Yasunori Ebina (A Certain Magical Index, Naruto) at Nippon Columbia.
Other cast members include Nobunaga Shimazaki, Kaori Sadohara, Misato, Iori Nomizu, and Aya Endo.
The anime began streaming in March, and will premiere on television in April.
