Exciting news for all you Date A Live fans out there! Get ready for some thrilling updates about the upcoming fifth season that’s been long-awaited. Just yesterday, on August 28, 2023, Date A Live season 5 treated us with a bunch of fresh character visuals, giving us a sneak peek into what’s in store. It’s been more than a year since they first announced this season, and now we’re finally getting a taste of the action.
Hold onto your seats, because the familiar faces we’ve come to love are back! The new character visuals feature all the main characters from the previous seasons. Yep, you heard that right—no changes in the voice actors either, so you can expect the same awesome performances that brought these characters to life.
But hey, let’s address the elephant in the room: we’re all dying to know when this new season will drop, right? Well, unfortunately, that’s still a bit of a mystery. There’s no official release date yet, and we’re not even sure when to mark our calendars. However, don’t lose hope just yet. The release of these snazzy character visuals is like a starting gun for the promotional campaign. So, fingers crossed, we should get more info in the coming months.
Do you know that the anime series The Rising of the Shield Hero is gearing up for its third season, which will release in October 2023? The anticipation has been heightened by the release of a brand-new trailer that provides a glimpse of the upcoming epic adventures:
Now, if you’re not already familiar with the story (which you totally should be), Date A Live is based on a light novel series penned by Koshi Tachibana, with some cool illustrations by Tsunaki. Even though the light novel story has wrapped up, the anime adaptation is still going strong, and this fifth season is the next big thing we’re all waiting for.
So, who’s gracing us with their presence in these visuals? We’ve got all the A-listers: Tohka Yatogami, Shido Itsuka, Kotori Itsuka, Origami Tobiichi, Yoshino, and Miku Izayoi. And guess what? They’re still voiced by the same talented folks who’ve been nailing it since day one: Marina Inoue, Nobunaga Shimazaki, Ayana Taketatsu, Misuzu Togashi, Iori Nomizu, and Minori Chihara. Talk about consistency, right?
Now, I know what you’re thinking. “Where can I binge-watch the previous seasons to get my fix while waiting for the new one?” Well, fear not! The first four seasons are up for grabs on Crunchyroll for international viewers. And although it’s not confirmed yet, it’s a pretty safe bet that Crunchyroll will continue to be your go-to for the fifth season too.
And just to give you a quick rundown, in case you’re new to this awesomeness: Date A Live follows the story of Shido, a regular high school guy who stumbles upon a mysterious girl right after a crazy space event. As he learns more from his sister Kotori, it turns out the girl is one of the enigmatic Spirits, these mystical beings that somehow cause these space quakes. Shido’s got a unique mission: he’s gotta make these Spirits fall in love with him to stop their world-shaking havoc. Yep, you read that right—love’s the key!
Oh, and here’s a cool tidbit for you: the whole journey started as a light novel by Tachibana and Tsunako. But it didn’t stop there—it expanded into manga adaptations featured in Monthly Shonen Ace and Monthly Dragon Age magazines. There’s even a spin-off light novel series called Date A Live Fragment: Date A Bullet, still cooking up excitement in the world of Fujimi Shobo.
So, there you have it—Date A Live season 5 is gearing up for action with some fresh character visuals, and even though we’re still waiting on the exact release date, the anticipation is officially on! Time to get hyped, my fellow fans.
