The background tracks are excellent, as is the cast of seiyuu (who do a skillful job of delivering personality to each girl) while even the catchy opening and ending sequences manage to stand out.
It should be noted though that the ending sequences are supremely lazy from an animation standpoint, usually containing a single image that is panned over continuously until the song ends. All in all, Date A Live is an absolute mess of a story-- but a disturbingly entertaining one.
There were no derp faces, the fight scenes looked crisp, the backgrounds were well done, everything about was done to a tee. You could tell the creators of DAL put a lot of effort into the art and they didn’t skip a beat. Sound - Soundtrack is another category DAL excels at.
The BGM fit almost every scene and really brought the most out of each scene. her voice was great and fit the character perfectly.
------------------------------------------------------------ Date A Live, or DAL for short, is a show about spirits invading our world and creating spacequakes upon entering our world that kills thousands of people.
If Date A Live were to be judged solely by the cuteness of its female cast, it would be a work of art. It shouldn't come as much of a surprise given the designs, but Date A Live's artwork is for the most part high-quality.
After our protagonist Shidou conveniently encounters two busty ladies fighting one another, he finds himself waking in the headquarters of an anti-Spirit organization, which (surprise! Kirino-- sorry, Kotori, proposes her master plan to Shidou: prevent the Spirits' destruction by making them fall in love with him. It is self-aware and (usually) does not attempt to be anything more than silly fun. Transfer students, toast-in-mouth, and the beloved walk-in-on-clearly-occupied-bathroom cliche? Girls falling in love with Shidou for no conceivable reason except to increase the size of his harem? There is even a scene in the anime where the Anti-Spirit Team-- which for some inexplicable reason is comprised entirely of busty, half-naked high school girls-- gets tentacle raped by ramen. Writing aside, you will indubitably gain some enjoyment from the 'cute girls' appeal. Tsunako's character designs (most easily recognized through her work on the Hyperdimension Neptunia franchise) adds a level of appeal uncommon to most harem anime.
Some of the best moments are when Shidou attempts to swoon the girls with cliched eroge lines, only to be met by awkward silence and/or violent threats. Kurumi's design, for example, is one of the most attractive in anime or manga- no hyperbole intended.
It's up to our main man Shidou to stop these invasions by dating them. Now, when I first learned of what the show is about, I thought it was kind of interesting... It's a unique idea for a show, albeit stupid, it is unique.
Story - The story is about our harem lead, Shidou, dating the many spirits that invade the earth.
