The synopsis of episode 7 states that Shido unlocked the emotions that Mukuro sealed for her own safety. Thanks to this particular event, Mukuro becomes fond of him. Shido goes on a date with her, but it seems that Mukuro is possessive toward him, which will lead to another crisis. The preview for episode 7 that was shown after the ending sequence of episode 6 also stated that a different side of Tohka and Origami will be awakened, and the “Inverse Tohka” is connected to this.

Keitaro Motonaga directed the first season at studio AIC+, season 2 at Production IMS, and season 3 at J.C. Staff. You can watch the series on Crunchyroll.
Date a Live was originally a light novel series by Koshi Tachibana with Tsunako’s illustrations. Fujimi Shobo serialized it from 2011 until 2020, and it had a total of 22 volumes in circulation. Yen Press licensed the Date a Live light novel series in English and describes the pot as:
April 10. The first day of school. Shido Itsuka is rudely awoken by his personal alarm clock—his little sister. It’s shaping up to be another typical day…well, as typical as it gets on a planet plagued by massive spatial quakes. Little does Shido know, however, his life is about to take a sudden turn when he encounters the source of this destructive phenomenon—a girl his age, apparently known as a Spirit. Turns out, there are only two ways he can stop her from unleashing hell on the world: Eliminate her by force or placate her…by taking her out on a date and making her fall in love with him!Yen Press
