Date a Live Episode 12 Final - Kotori Is SO Kawaii!

Yo guys! Tadashi here and today I'll be talking about the 12th and final episode of Date a Live which concludes the Kotori arc but unfortunately leaves the Kurumi arc unfinished.

The episode continues with Shidou and Kotori's date at the amusement park and man did we ever see another cute side of Kotori. Shidou was loving this as well and it Kotori actually had a genuinely good time.

Origami took the new weapon, White Licorice, and went straight for Kotori attacking her with tons of bystanders around not giving a single fuck. Her sole mission was to kill Efreet at all costs no matter what. Kotori transformed into her Spirit form but ended up using too much power early on which resulted in Origami almost killing her. They were saved by Tohka and Yoshino who bought time for Shidou and Kotori to get away.

That was when Shidou had no choice but to seal her powers right there and after getting Kotori to say she loves him more than anyone else in the world, they finally shared their kiss. The kiss, however, brought back memories that they lost and it was clear what happened 5 years ago. Kotori saved Shidou by kissing him and healing his wounds and Shidou was the one who gave her her black ribbons.

Origami hit the limit of her the White Licorice and passed out not fulfilling her mission. And that was how this arc ended. *clapclapclapclap*

"I love you like a sister"
This whole series has been a roller coaster going from awesome to not so awesome. The adaptation itself wasn't done too great and the pace was pretty bad. Other than that, the designs, voice acting, and even the music was pleasantly satisfying. If you guys didn't already know, season 2 was green lit so I'll definitely be covering that when it comes around. Hopefully they do a better job than the first season.

As you can see, Kurumi is still at large and her arc remains unfinished
Visuals: 8/10
Audio: 7/19
Story: 7/10
Characters: 9/10 
Enjoyment: 8/10

Overall: 7.8/10

At the very end, we see some previews for the next season. It also shows Origami laying in a bed looking like she's broken. Maybe that suit was too much for her? Here's some pictures:

Anyways, see you guys for the 2nd season!
