DAL thread. Best imouto edition.
I finished s1 and was wondering why /a/ loves it so much. TWGOK is better than this shit
What I'd give to lick the sole of Kotori's foot.
This series is shit and the only harem worse than it is IS
Why is Kotori so HOT?
I'd let her command me if you know what I mean.
Kotori is best girl, best imouto, and best spirit.
So S2 is happening soon. Will /a/ like the new characters?
I started reading the novels earlier in the week, just finished 5 today.
They're pretty good, I wish I started reading them earlier.
Am I the only one who imagines her as a moe loli version of Gendo?
IS isn't that bad compared to shit like Maken Ki and Campione!
The newer girls pale in comparison to the first original five. Really. So...
The LN for Campione is pretty good actually, the adaptation was just terrible.
I like some of the girls in IS, but it's not better than Maken Ki or Campione at all. The latter two have better writing compared to it, especially Campione which is a lot more believable in premise and actually decently written and has merits in the mythology and legends aspects.
Imouto wants to play.
Are you talking about the LN? Because there were huge loopholes not explained in the anime (when did he fight Doni?). But it was probably because they tried to fit everything in 12 episodes.
>only Kotori has an ahoge
confirmed for main character
That can't be right. Let me go check on....
True girl end is inevitable.
DAL Thread Checklist:
☑Date A Stuff http://pastebin.com/niT6EfTf
☑Origami a shit

I love you, Kurumi.
holy shit there is something horribly wrong with her face
I haven't seen the anime for Maken Ki or Campione yet, so I'm going by the only source I know.
This isn't a thread to discuss Campione, but I can tell you that you can find your answers at the Campione wikia. Events that were mention in early volumes are shown in later volumes as flashbacks that focuses on them. The story of Doni and Godou's encounter after the latter recently became a Campione happened in volume 11
I NEED PICTURES
PICTURES OF KOTORI
Man, this black and white business has me vaguely recalling an old hand game of black and white that I used to play. It's like at the tip of my mind, but I can't see to remember how to play it exactly. I hate when this happens.
By that logic series like Mouse, Hanaukyo Maid Team, and Amaenaideyo! are better than both of them. Surely you can't mean that.
I don't care how flat she is. Her personality makes it worth.
Kotori is your imouto, so she's not off limits for you. But, Yoshino is your daughteru, so even you wouldn't do her...right?
Is tohka voiced by a different seiyuu in the OVA? She sounded completely different, it didn't seem like it was Inoue Marina.
Same seiyuu. Someone said that she is preparing for the loli Tohka part. I hope she'll return to the Yozora-type voice in S2.
What are you saying? The flatter, the better.
Yeah. Tohka is pretty sugary for work done by Inoue, but in the OVA they revved up the gauge to drug-induced levels.
I have more fun trolling than actually liking the series.
…A serious error occurred
…I don’t know
……………..What is love?
We are all waiting on S2, but what about the new game? Is anyone looking forward to it and the new girl who seems to be a loli android?
Forgot my pic.
She and Mana are the imoutos I want to have.
Don't be silly. But I'm sure it's made by Deus.Ex.Machina Industries.
absolute cancer.png is back
Let it stay there. The checklist has spoken so this is the true DAL thread.
Time is right.
I recognize that bulge!
So why is the it called Date A Live? Shouldn't Date To Live be more fitting with the premise?
Nep thread. Best imouto edition.
Just kidding, Kotori a shit though.
I think it's because it sounds like "dead or alive" or something.
It's a Nip pun based on the pronunciation of "Dead or Alive".
You're not welcomed here. Leave.
Well, in that case, I guess it does fit then.
>Dead or Alive
>Natsumi's identity in her little game
Natsumi is the 2nd on my list after Kurumi.
What. Did I miss something? Either way, Natsumi is so damn adorable. I really like her design.
Your list of what?
Best girls, obviously.
I'm not trolling, I actually liked her.
The D List.
Not really obvious since you included Natsumi on it.
Also what the fuck is up with these captchas?
Me too. I'd lovingly give her the D in either form.
Natsumi is wonderfully fine. This isn't AS, so you don't need to think that, anon.
Don't make me say it.
Not liking Natsumi is your opinion and I respect it.
But she's almost best for me.
As for the captchas, they're normal for me.
I also like her. She's 3rd in my rankings.
I thought I'd never see this day.
Natsumi has a lovely butt.
She fulfills my sickly/frail little girl whom I want to protect and love fetish. Her psychological issues only makes me want to care for her until she gets better even more.
Do we have a new Flattest DAL to crown?
Are you implying that's something to be ashamed of?
I'm implying it's time for celebrations if that is so.
Then yes, she's the very flattest
My research confirms that she's indeed the flattest girl as of yet.
I wish to join in this celebration.
>we could have something as wonderful as this and yet we end up with another generic loli
Thanks for nothing DAL.
It's obvious you haven't read volume 9. Natsumi's design is already unique in its own right and her personality is refreshingly twisted and disturbing yet endearing from all the others.
I don't disagree.
>It's obvious you haven't read volume 9.
No i haven't. I just thought that this was the best DAL design yet and then it ends up being just another loli.
I smell normalfag.
I smell a faggot.
Now you're being faggot. Natsumi's true form has a great design, so what the hell are you talking about?
Nothing suggests I am one, while you make it pretty clear you are a normalfag.
>Hijacking a dead thread

I WANT TO FUCK KOTORI SO BAD, MAN
I WANT TO FUCK HER
>Not high tier at least
What's stopping you, anon?
2.5D exists and you are God.
This kills the /a/
Fool. She lives within your heart.
Maybe you can try fucking your heart to reach her?
I chuckled so hard, I choked on the water I was drinking.here.
>I was only pretending to samefag
How does that even work?
yeah sorry i misquote
Squats and oats
stop doing that fag
You're so paranoid, but you're really just a troll.
I'm not going to bother anymore.
Holy shit you're so mad it must hurt.
Answer me this:
>If you could save hundreds by making one simple call, why would you not make that call?
Not that guy but nah I don't want to make it so fuck it. Too much of a bother
>Letting a troll trolling this much
Even Kurumi can't reverse. What are you guys doing?
Tell me your favorite DAL and I will tell you what;s wrong with her
Kurumi. Do it.
Your favorite DAL is my favorite DAL.
THIS IS NOW A POTASSIUM RELATED ANIME THREAD.
POST ALL OF YOUR POTASSIUM RELATED ANIMUITT
So I got to thinking
Does anyone actually like Mana? Like... I've seen people say she's better than Kotori but no one saying Mana is best girl
I can't like her without thinking she's the best?
Mana > all
I like both Mana and Kotori and think they share the best girl spot. But I post of Kotori than I do for Mana though.
I think she is better imouto than Kotori but not the best girl.
I didn't realize Kotori was Kirino until HUH??
Because she does next to nothing and is phased out of the story almost immediately?
As expected. A DAL thread without the Tohka hater and Origami hater makes for a decent thread.
Mana is best imouto but the best girl is Rooftop Kurumi.
You exaggerate. She has her good/awesome moments and focus, even if they're fairly small in amount.
That's true. All I remember of her though is
>Kurumi is kill
And that she's going to die in ten years. I expected them to follow up on that, but then she went to the hospital and disappeared completely.
If Mana is supposed to be the better imouto, why is Kotori's love for her onii-chan unbeatable?
Mana's love must be stronger if she puts Shidou above any order unlike Kotori who will kill Shidou.
Kurumi is stubborn. Her plan to use her time manipulation to prevent spirits from existing will not work. Her overconfidence is astounding, and she seems to think she is invincible. This is not the case and she may learn the hard way in the future. She isn't just stubborn, she is flat out crazy. Kurumi has no value for any human life. They are simply pawns she can manipulate as she chooses. She chooses to use them as fuel, killing thousands. Ultimately she is headed down the wrong road until shidou can somehow save her.
He suffers from "what I do is always right" syndrome like almost every MC. Because he is the main character and we see the series from his perspective, he IS the good one. We also see the antagonization of the AST who have a natural reaction to spirits. From their perspective, spirits destroy and kill. Their reaction is what you would expect. In shidou's perspective we see the spirits humanized so of course he sympathizes with them. He is just one of those goody goody characters who always seems to know what is right, at least what he thinks is right. Ratatoskr may be manipulating him for ulterior motives we don't yet know.
Yoshino lacks confidence. She can barely even complete her sentences despite being very smart. She lacks so much she has a puppet who has a completely different personality to hers. She uses that puppet to convey how she really wants to be but still ultimately lacks the confidence to do it herself. Basically, she is hiding behind a puppet.
Kotori? She has split her personality in two. A side where she can express anything she wants in a cute almost childish way, and a stern and more adult personality who isn't always as honest with herself. It definitely makes for an interesting character, but having two split personalities you determine by hair ribbons definitely isn't healthy.
I'm pretty drunk so I kinda rambled on
That's kinda expected due to the difference in love. One is romantic love, the other is pure sibling love that doesn't cross the line.
If she can't be honest with her feelings then her love is not so strong.
This game was fun. I'm glad I got it. Haven't done all the routes yet
Kurumi ending was the best ending.
I agree even though I don't really like kurumi.
From a different perspective, it takes true love to have the will to kill the one you love most because you have to as there's no other option to save that person's soul.
Wat. A front that hides her display of love doesn't diminish her love.
She is very needy. Tohka may not be the sharpest tool in the shed, but she isn't necessarily "super dumb" or "retarded." she literally has no knowledge of the human world when she first comes to live in it and that obviously warrants teaching her those things. She has progressed a lot since the start and even lives in her own "apartment" next door, but she also needs attention to feel loved. Her emotions are incredibly unstable and she is unsure of herself quite a bit.
I'm having a bit of scotch myself. I have yet to watch the OVA yet so I guess I will go and do that
>origami not restrained and no mention of what happened in episode 12
This is filler ?
Miku true end when? One can dream right?
Short stories bro.
Nope. Short stories that took place..hmm I want to say origami impossible is after volume two and tohka gamecenter is after volume 1. And the anime ended after volume 4 and will pick up in 5.
This scene was pretty funny. Shidou's reaction and Kotori's shocked expression and stunned voice made this whole thing amusing.
Season 2 will be another 10 episodes right?
>She's a real monster.
It will be 12.
Thought something was afoot. Also. Yoshino is nowhere to be found. Should be an indicator there.
>Yoshino is nowhere to be found
Seems like I won't need to watch the OVA in this case.
I have never seen a thread die so fast after bump limit like the last one. God damn everyone was trying to GET. Fucking idiots
This is 4chan after all.
All the girls get a date. Yoshino's date is in the next OVA.
YOSHINO OVA WHEN?
>This is 4chan after all
One of the only sites where people orgasm over post numbers.
Unless they skip it and do the yamai one for season 2!
D, of course. She is that character in some VNs that if you tell her, in the first scene, that you want to fuck her so badly, she accepts.
Well that OVA sure was cute. Fills me up with enough hype for season 2.
>implying you don't care
Doubt that.Yamai and Kurumi would be the third OAD instead.
A 15 year old fanfiction writer can write a better story than that shit.
Surely they can't Yoshino is going to get shafted in season 2. She isn't around much at all in 5-7. In fact she isn't even in 5.
He said pretty good, not high literature. I can agree with the anon there.
Why are you even in this thread? Just to reply to that one post?
>lack of yoshino
>lack of kurumi
FUCKING HELL. I don't care. I'm still excited.
Wouldn't say shafted since the next two volume is supposed to mainly be about newer heroines. She does have a small role in volume 6, but a pretty major one in volume 7.
I'd shaft Yoshino, if you know what I mean.
Tohka is around a lot in 5 and plays a huge role in the last part, not as much in 6 but she is still there, but then of course 7 is when she goes inverse. And kotori remains at the commander helm so of course she is there all the time. Compared to that Yoshino doesn't get much at all. Then again it was even that way after her arc in season 1 and her volume was only 2 episodes when everyone else got 3.
Wat. Episode 4, 5, and 6 covered volume 2.
Episode 6 was anime only filler anon... Volume 2 ended when the Yoshino and Tohka were moving into the spirit apartment next door.
Re-watching episode 12 in glorious BD..
This corrupter.... How can Shidou make his cute imouto do such impure things like this?
Christ anon. Fucking spoiler that.
Shidou can try to be a nice guy as much as he wants. But dating that many girls is just cruel. It's his job but it still doesn't make it right. I feel bad for all the girls because you get left in the dust when someone new appears.
I know. It's the problem I have with this genre.
You're talking to thin air lad. No one here but me.
That's what I thought. How is your knowledge on this series? I'm sorry to say I know nothing outside of what I watched in the anime
With regards to what you're talking about, Shidou handles it pretty well in the novels and the spirits themselves are more or less aware of what's going on so they are relatively ok with it.
Pretty fucking good. Why do you ask?
I'm here too, anon. Just still re-watching the show in glorious improved BD. Also, I'm keeping an eye out on the corrupter.
He does huh. Those girls are so selfless. I still think they need some more love.
that quality origami made me laugh quite a bit. I was just wondering, because it seems everyone in here has dived kinda deeper than just the anime here.
I wish I had more quality shots.
Can't be helped. Sealing is srs business.
Not everyone. A lot of people did. Anime-only majority will be back for season 2
Keep thread alive [ ]
Let thread die [ ]
[X] Make a strawpoll of it.
Only 17 minutes apart from the post above yours. Are you dumb?
Enough to reach page 6.
Page drop is logarithimic.
Looking forward to that too.
Good question. I still can't shake the idea that Origami, Reine and Karen all look very alike.
Just making sure others are here. It's 3 am and I need sleep
Why is tohka so shitty? I fucking hate her
Don't be mean.
Why is tohka so great? I fucking love her
12:24 AM. But I've been on for over 24 hours. Seriously, sometimes I don't know what I am doing with my life.
Well I won't be here after sunday. College is back and I can't afford to get anything below B.
Mind the gap.
Don't remind me.
Who needs college? You already have highly valuable skills, anon. You only need to apply for Ratatoskr and become the next Dimension Breaker.
That certainly would be the life.
I know that pic is from other part of the anime but I can't help but think that, if anything, the filler episode brought us more crazy crew action and a good view into the AST girls. I really liked how each girl was given a face.
Why is Tohka so perfect?
She is bliss. Pure happiness and love
Exactly. And this is why the bullying she gets is so sad, considering how great she is.
I want to marry her.
That's the same problem I have too with the harem genre, Data a Live is admittedly a bit better with the short stories but it still feels like Tohka plus the current heroines story in the main novels. It really sucks since I'm a Origami and Twins fan. Both of them get pretty shafted
I agree. I love all DALs. I think we have great girls
I just love tohka the most out of them all
Yeah, every girl is good in their own way.
Tohka just stood out to me above all of the rest, though. Just her personality and everything about her is just so... great. Plus I have enough money to satisfy her eating habits.
off to sleep with me, been up for ~37 hours now. [/spoiler
Very good taste. Goodnight m8.
Yeah that's a tough one. I don't know who the twins are yet, but I know origami has had it rough
Why is this series so cute. Why must it be that way?
That may be a downside, but that comes with the territory for the genre unless it's that kind of series that goes for the harem end. However, the pros definitely outweigh the cons in that you can enjoy multiple girls for a variety of reasons..
So tired. I'm going to post my girls, then go to sleep.
W-Whats the difference
Regular tohka. Dark/inverse tohka. Same girl. One uses an angel. One uses a demon.
Pleasant dreams, anon.
Check out the LN. The other is dark version.
Thanks. Helpful as always.
Why do so many spirits have blue eyes?? Both yamai (interesting that their hair is different from their eyes), Miku, and Yoshino.
Yoshino and Miku having blue eyes makes sense, but the twins should have orange eyes. The others, aside from Kurumi, have matching eyes to hair color.
Yeah. interesting that the twins got blue instead of orange. if origami ends up a spirit like some speculated then that's even more blue.
Just take it and love it. More on the way in april.
If she does become one, then I think she'll get either dark silver or dark gray eyes instead. Maybe even dark purple.
Best of both (imouto) worlds.
Origami is one of the characters that suffers pretty badly in the novels, It's not explicitly said (except in volume 4) but the Spirit Attack on her parents messed her up pretty badly. It ended up making her how she is now, emotionless and without a sense of self (read suicidal and not caring how others view her). The only time she truly enjoys herself is when she's with Shidou due to an infatuation that occurred sometime before the first volume. She really depends on him This is where it gets painful since Origami is the only girl Shidou actively tries to rebuke and sidestep her advances.
>tfw no cute loli tohka to sleep on top of you
That chapter was so cute.
Bump for DAL
Yoshino and Yoshinon with twintails and a lolipop might be a very cute thing to behold indeed.
Is Tama-chan in the harem too?
I guess he still remembers Rinne subconsciously or something
does anyone have that picture without the words?
Kurumi a best
