Date a Live” presents a reality transformed by cosmic events that have left an indelible mark on human history. Three decades ago, a cataclysm known as the “space earthquake” shook the Eurasian continent, claiming the lives of millions and generating mysterious vibrations that still resonate in the present. Although today’s space earthquakes are less devastating in magnitude, they persist as a constant reminder of the fragility of human existence.

In the midst of this chaos, we are introduced to Shidou Itsuka, a high school student whose seemingly ordinary life takes an unexpected turn the moment a space earthquake threatens the city of Tengu and Shidou bravely springs into action. However, he is caught in an explosion that irreversibly alters his destiny. At that precise moment, his path crosses that of an enigmatic young woman, triggering a series of events that will plunge him into a hidden world full of dangers.

It turns out that this enigmatic young woman is a “Spirit,” an entity from an unknown plane whose mere presence triggers the dreaded space earthquakes. As Shidou delves deeper into this enigma, he is drawn into a conflict of cosmic dimensions. On the one hand, the Anti-Spirit Team seeks the relentless elimination of these entities, considered a threat. On the other hand, a third group known as “Ratatoskr”, led by Shidou’s younger sister, Kotori, believes in the redemption of the Spirits and proposes a bold alternative: to conquer them through love.

This is how our protagonist finds himself in a unique and challenging situation: he must face a race against time to win the hearts of these enigmatic entities and thus prevent catastrophic disasters. The plot unfolds with unexpected twists and turns, intense emotions and comical situations, as Shidou embarks on peculiar dates and adventures in pursuit of a mission that could save both the Spirits and the entire world.
