Disclaimer: Might contain some spoilers. Date a Live III is third season of Date a Live (no shit), and honestly, it's the best one so far. Until this time, characters felt too moe like, but in this season, characters feel more like.. people, story is more complex, which will leave your brain blown, with the great characters, awesome looking animation, and beautiful voice acting, it creates a very good combination. Definitely worth seeing, but i deeply recommend watching first two seasons first. Story: It's very difficult to say something about the story without spoilers, but i'll try my best. Shido is after successfully sealing several spirits living pretty normal life, but after some time, new spirit appears. This new spirit has onee-chan visual, and overall is acting like onee-chan. Of course, the AST shows up, so in order to defend herself, Natsumi (the new spirit) has to use her abilities. She does attack which uses some kind of transformation. After successfully defending herself, she gets very, very angry at Shido and swears that she'll ruin his life. So she does some stuff (cannot say what cuz spoilers). After successfully sealing her spirit powers, Origami wants to kill spirits again, so she tries to, but fails. Then, some kind of crystal with voice, aproaches her, swearing that it'll give Origami powers to defeat all the spirits, and of course, Origami accepts. Then, probably main event of the anime starts happening. In 6 episodes, it completely explains what happend 5 years ago and what led to these events. Shido is sent back in time to change all this, saving Origami's parents, which completely changes her. In current timeline, Shido and his "team" is trying to figure out, who is this new spirit called "The Devil". This is where i'll stop, since this is part where it's very story based. Animation Animation is still very beautiful, with the Date a Live look. There isn't anything bad to say about it, everything looks very colorful and smooth, characters look very good. Definitely pleasant experience for eyes. Sound Sound and voice acting is very good, but in some parts, characters don't sound so good/natural. But still, very amazing job done on the sound. Characters: Characters are absolute masterpiece of this season. All of them feel more brave, less moe like, and imo, new characters are also great. But for people who don't like tsunderes, yeah, it will be kinda annoying experience. But overall, very good job on this too. Overall: It's a great sequel, but one thing that is definitely annoying, is that at every major thing, that main character should do alone, everyone comes, speaks about friendship, and win. I would definitely welcome some more MC independence. But after all, still great, there's not many bad thing to say about this season, i'm personaly very pleased with this. I'll definitely lookout for new season, and i hope it'll be atleast this good. Definitely worth seeing, it's a great experience. 9.5/10.
Story: Typical harem anime similar to "The World God Only Knows"... The girls fall in love with the mc quickly, which is unrealistic. That final episode was really lame. Does he think he's a certain buddhist monk with hentai-spirit powers? Well, that was a major fail, and his character-type in that episode was utter crap. MC needs an arc about his two strongest spirits training the others to get that power (of inversion) in order to prepare themselves against DEM. Plus, Demon's spirit powers are just recycled versions of the other's spirit powers, BLAH. Witch's story arc was why I gave this as high a score as I did. 6/10 Animation: Demon's spirit form was her in a wedding dress and a ridiculous wedding veil. The rest of the animation was decent, though. No other complaints there. It's an over-all beautifully-colored anime with a lot of complementing colors that don't clash. 8/10 Sound: I'd say that about half of the original English voice actors didn't have a part in this, which made it a lot less enjoyable. The original voice actor/actresses for Princess, Hermit, Ifrit, AND the Vice Commander were all different from the first two seasons. :( 4/10 Characters: mostly flat with no character development other than witch's misunderstanding once it was cleared up 6/10 OVERALL: 6/10 at best
“Date A Live” no longer needs an introduction. This is one of the series that still lasts until now with a gap period of 4 years since the movie. All we need from this series is the fantasies of the fans. Nothing else but this is also the worst one if you are happy to say it. When the first episode aired, this third season gets a not-really-good response. They say that this anime is nothing more than a hentai anime even hentai has so much quality than this. They said that it followed up from the illustration of the difference between the light novel and the series. And also if this allows them to be sad again with this third season. With no crap at all, “Date A Live III” is indeed a curious case since the first glance at the second season. This show doesn’t need to be asked anymore because of such its simple premise. Although I myself am not too overpraised this anime is as proud as it is. I always say I’ll watch anything and since then, I’ve arrived at this time. J.C.Staff made a lot of “improvement” in this high-quality series. It’s like comparing diarrhea that comes in your ears than watching this series. However, I was so curious because, in reality, people were more concerned with quality than stories. This might also apply to video games. But, this third season is still one of your generic standard harems, to begin with. It’s such a thing to combine harem with visual dating elements-like. Our story begins with our savior, Shido Itsuka, who lives happily along with the Spirits he has kissed. This season introduces Natsumi as the seventh spirit. She has two personalities at least or two forms. In addition, Origami introduced the second arc as one of the best arcs in this season. The arc also discusses Origami’s past, decent time travel story, and a rollercoaster allows this arc to be the most serious. The first arc introducing Natsumi who played a mind game against Shido and her friends. It’s just… what’s the matter? I feel like this isn’t too important besides Natsumi being the character who has gained the most attention since its PV. But why? This arc is pointless. She takes so much pride and jealous of Shido. Apart from that, I can conclude this arc as not the worse but it’s just pointless to see this pointless psychological game which is not discussed again in the next arc. Onto the next. Now, I assume Origami is just a character without any development at all other than being just a slave-love to Shido himself. In fact, I don’t know why. This arc takes its tone into a serious and emotional rollercoaster ride. She is the girl who sacrificed everything to Shido the most. Not only that, but she was also not given the opportunity, especially the less sensitive Shido. This arc also discusses more Origami’s past and who actually killed her parents. One thing that makes me irritating with this arc is her character.It follows the same format as the first and second season. I don’t even know which side she was on. At first, she lives her daily life happily ever after with Shido and other friends. But, she always became one of the antagonists for other reasons. And don’t start again with capitalism-like antagonists without any clear reason. I don’t even know where to start. I think the show stops at this arc without having to add Shido again in the last episode as fanservice. It’s a harem so what do you expect? This show has awkward and wisecracks humor dialogues. The music is still pretty good and decent but the artwork is just “spectacular”. I mean, J.C. Staff take their ego by taking various kinds of projects. I don’t even want to start again. Clearly, “Date A Live III” shows its chance to become an interesting series into a gimmick generic harem. It’s a shame that the studio takes too much of the third season which is also a request from fans themselves. I just want to watch this series as always from the beginning. But, just enough already.
There is no discussion yet for this series.
