Plot Of Date A Live Anime
Itsuka Shido was just another regular high school boy with a normal life. But, on the last day of the spring holidays before school started, a spacequake wrecked the town and a girl in armor appeared in front of him. Shido’s adoptive sister, Kotori, tells him that the girl is a “Special Disasterous Designated Creature: Spirit,” which caused the spacequakes and revealed that she was the commander of the organization that dealt with Spirits, and ordered him to go out on a date with the Spirit in order to pacify her. Kotori tells him, “I don’t ask you to defeat the Spirit. Just let her fall in love with you and save the world.”
