Date A Live Series Synopsis
30 years ago, a spatial quake devastated central Eurasia, which resulted in 150 million casualties. Since the cataclysm, smaller quakes have struck at random all over the world. Today, Shido Itsuka and his foster sister Kotori Itsuka live under the constant possibility of another event.
During such an event, Shido finds himself face to face with an armor-clad girl at the epicenter of the quake. He calls the girl Tohka, and Shido can’t help but notice the sadness on her face.
Following the encounter, the shadow organization, Ratatoskr, brings Shido under its protection. Kotori reveals herself to be the group’s commander, and she has a job only her older brother can do.
Kotori reveals that entities known as Spirits are the cause of the spatial quakes. Unlike the rest of the world, Ratatoskr’s mission is not to kill these beings but save them. This is where Shido comes in, for he can seal a Spirit’s destructive power. However, Shido must have a Spirit fall in love with him to achieve this. His first mission is to save Tohka.
Anime Hajime Character Highlight
Voiced By: Asami Sanada
Considered to be the most dangerous Spirit, Kurumi has the ability to control time. Unlike the other Spirits Shido Itsuki has encountered, Kurumi has shown an intense pretense towards violence; reports indicate she has killed thousands of people by her own hand. Although Kurumi does hold romantic – albeit twisted – feelings towards Shido, she is the only Spirit to date that Shido has failed to seal.
