Date a Live premiered in 2013 under studio AIC+. Production IMS animated the second season in 2014 and a movie titled Date a Live: Mayuri Judgement in 2015. It was followed by the third season under J.C. Staff in 2019.

The anime is based on Koshi Tachibana’s Date a Live light novel series. Fujimi Shobo published it with Tsunako’s illustrations from 2011 to 2020, and it has a total of 22 volumes in circulation. Yen Press is serializing the original Date a Live light novel series in English. The synopsis goes by:
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!
