New Release Tuesday – Date A Live and Karneval

Happy New Release Tuesday, everyone! We’ve got two stellar releases for you today: Date A Live and Karneval.

 

First up, let’s take a look at Date A Live!

 

series synopsis:

 

Alien vixens make a splash in the interplanetary dating pool in this sci-fi rom-com from the director of Jormungand and the studio behind Cat Planet Cuties!

In a world devastated by mysterious spatial quakes, Shido isn’t what you’d expect in a hero. He’s an average Joe who gets bossed around by his adorable little sister and mocked by the popular girls at his school. You’d definitely pick him last for dodge ball, but when it comes to saving the planet from imminent destruction, Shido’s got one thing going for him: intergalactic hotties can’t keep their hands off him! When the secret to stopping the spatial quakes turns out to be romancing the extraterrestrial Spirits responsible for all the chaos, Shido the loveable loser becomes the hero of all humanity. For every Spirit he makes out with, mankind breathes a little bit easier. Kiss the girls – save the world. That name of the game is driving the space babes crazy, and nobody does it better than Shido!

Shido learns, through the help of his sister Kotori, that the girl is one of the Spirits: mystical creatures responsible for the genesis of the spacequakes. As captain of the anti-Spirit airship Ratatoskr, Kotori recruits Shido to help “seal” the sprits, thus ending their threat to mankind.

There’s just one catch: the only way to seal a spirit – is to make her fall in love with you.
