Unless they've announced a VA for Natsumi, I imagine they'll just animate the next three volumes and pad it with short stories if necessary.

-hmm...you're right...and about Natsumi VA...if possible?yap i want it too :D ....I just can't stop thinking that...what will Shidou do with "them" in the end? :lol:

Eh, if im not mistaken it should be 12 episodes, like the previous one. Considering Kurumi's popularity, I doubt they're going to bother cutting too much of Miku's arc. I can't really estimate how much is Yamai's arc, especially when it's just one volume. If they're going by the "3 episodes 1 volume" formula again though, you've got 3 extra episodes... Expect fillers I guess. Or some of the short stories dumped in. Yoshino Fireworks is a possibility considering it wraps up what happens in episode 11. Maybe Yamai Lunchtime too (come on, new girls, more love <3)

Inverse Tohka is pretty much built as a climax, so having more things after it would be really weird IMO. In fact, I'd say, because of IT, Natsumi has literally zero chance of ever appearing in S2. Time to wait for a S3 then...

Like, I think the same when I see anime dubbed to Portuguese, the anime becomes really awkward, because there's loads of changes and it really does become awkward!

But, if you think about that, it is good for kids, who don't know how to read or have difficulties to read the subs and watch the anime.

Not all English dubs are bad...

On another note, since all the blu-rays for season 1 should have been subbed by now, I guess I can finally watch Date A Live. :D

Another clip:

Thoughts on the English dub:
Acting was kind of meh. I would say it is passable (just like the anime itself). These were only small clips of their voices so don't give them full verdict.

Dunno yet, I have to catch up on the recent ones they released.

On another note, looks like they are releasing a movie. I wonder if it will be a compilation or a standalone.

Season 2 started well, I thought, but fresh after watching episode 9 I feel like the animation dropped in quality some, the dialogue became chees-y/ier, and someone chucked the pacing out the window.

It made me giggle when Shido pretty much said "I have to save Tohka; I can't waste time here... But seriously now, let's stand in this stairwell and talk about your past for a bit." That was a lampshade that needed hanging.

Otherwise, the creepy evil guy is a creepy evil guy; the ruthless, emotionless peon is a ruthless, emotionless peon; Tohka, who has already BSOD'd before witnessing Shido survive certain death in season one, BSODs again as Miku just stands off to the side with her Angel completely prepared yet doing nothing; and I still have no idea what a "territory" is, except that it's used by "wizards" against spirits. it really feels like the director is just saying "Heck, if they haven't started reading the light novel by now, we can't get them interested. Screw it all."

Or... Some of these things just don't translate well from the original format? Is this the usual pattern for LN-adapts? Eh, I'll just start reading eventually, I guess.
