What is the storyline of Date A Live anime?
The series started with a ” spatial quake “. It was a strange phenomenon that devastated the center of Eurasia and resulted in at least 150 million casualties. For the next 30 years, the world was a victim of several other smaller spatial quakes on an irregular basis. Now in the present scenario, Shido Itsuka, who was a seemingly ordinary high school student, comes across a mysterious girl at the ground zero of a spatial quake. Kotori, who is his adoptive sister, tells him that the girl belongs to one of the “Spirits” who have come from different dimensions. She also tells him that, they are the real cause of the spatial quakes that occur when they manifest themselves in the real world. He also learns that Kotori is the commander of the airship Fraxinus, crewed by the organization Ratatoskr and its parent company Asgard Electronics.
Shido has a special mysterious ability to seal the Spirit’s powers, which stops the Spirits from being a threat to mankind. Due to this, he gets recruited by Ratatoskr. However, there is a catch: to seal a Spirit’s power, he must make each Spirit fall in love with him and make her kiss him. However, AST (Anti-Spirit Team), which is a special unit designed to suppress the threat posed by Spirits by eliminating them, opposes the idea of Shido and his companions. The AST is backed by DEM Industries, a conglomerate led by Sir Isaac Ray Pelham Westcott who intends to exploit the powers of the Spirits for his purpose. As Shido successfully keeps sealing more and more Spirits, he gains allies to help him with his dates with other Spirits but also increases the competition among them for his attention and affection, much to his chagrin.
