Just about 2 years since the 3rd season, Date A Live IV (Season 4) has a release date – October 2021! The announcement was made at KADOKAWA Light Novel Expo 2020 today, and there is an awesome new visual featuring Tohka and Shidou:
Produced by GEEKTOYS of “Date A Live Fragment”! “They have also announced that there will be various projects to commemorate its 10th Anniversary on March 19th.
The original light novel ran for exactly 9 years from March 19, 2011 to March 19, 2020. The author is Koushi Tachibana, and the art was drawn by Tsunako. It received several anime adaptations, as well as manga adaptations and spin-offs. We enjoyed the first anime season back in 2013, and you can also read the synopsis:
Thirty years before a strange phenomena called a “spacequake” devastated the center of Eurasia, claiming the lives of at least 150 million people. Since then, smaller spacequakes plague the world on a irregular basis. Shidou Itsuka, a seemingly ordinary high schooler comes across a mysterious girl at the ground zero of a spacequake and learns from his sister Kotori she is one of the “Spirits” who are the real cause of the spacequakes that occur when they manifest themselves in the world. He also learns that Kotori is the captain of the airship Ratatoskr and recruits him to make use of his mysterious ability to seal the Spirits’ powers and stop them from being a threat to mankind. However, there is a catch: to seal a Spirit, he must make her fall in love with him.
We’re all excited for Date A Live IV (Season 4), and let’s patiently wait for October 2021!
