There were no derp faces, the fight scenes looked crisp, the backgrounds were well done, everything about was done to a tee. You could tell the creators of DAL put a lot of effort into the art and they didn’t skip a beat. Sound - Soundtrack is another category DAL excels at.The BGM fit almost every scene and really brought the most out of each scene. her voice was great and fit the character perfectly.After our protagonist Shidou conveniently encounters two busty ladies fighting one another, he finds himself waking in the headquarters of an anti-Spirit organization, which (surprise! Kirino-- sorry, Kotori, proposes her master plan to Shidou: prevent the Spirits' destruction by making them fall in love with him. It is self-aware and (usually) does not attempt to be anything more than silly fun. Transfer students, toast-in-mouth, and the beloved walk-in-on-clearly-occupied-bathroom cliche? Girls falling in love with Shidou for no conceivable reason except to increase the size of his harem? There is even a scene in the anime where the Anti-Spirit Team-- which for some inexplicable reason is comprised entirely of busty, half-naked high school girls-- gets tentacle raped by ramen. Writing aside, you will indubitably gain some enjoyment from the 'cute girls' appeal. Tsunako's character designs (most easily recognized through her work on the Hyperdimension Neptunia franchise) adds a level of appeal uncommon to most harem anime.Some of the best moments are when Shidou attempts to swoon the girls with cliched eroge lines, only to be met by awkward silence and/or violent threats. Kurumi's design, for example, is one of the most attractive in anime or manga- no hyperbole intended.It turns out that this girl is actually a Spirit, a powerful being from another world whose arrival devastates the surrounding area.Thankfully, Shidou is rescued by an anti-Spirit strike team... This vicious task force is locked and loaded, ready to exterminate Spirits with extreme prejudice. He discovers the one way to neutralize these Spirits peacefully: make them fall in love."Before the world ends, kill me or kiss me." Thirty years before the events of Date A Live, an enormous explosion devastates east Asia and kills 150 million people.
I am on the side where I think it's a work of art but I will try to not be bias.Editor, October 2008: I have disabled the Submit Question feature.
