The official website for the Date A Live anime franchise has started streaming a short promotional trailer for the upcoming second season, Date A Live II, that is set to air in April 2014. The video showcases the song ‘Trust in you’ by sweet ARMS along with text stating, “The first season was just a prologue.”
30 years ago, a disaster known as a spacequake obliterated the center of Eurasia without warning, leaving 150 million corpses in its wake. Ever since that day, mankind has lived in constant fear of the spontaneously recurring spacequakes. One day, an ordinary high school boy named Shido Itsuka discovers a mysterious girl at ground zero of a recent spacequake. 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.
Along with this the official Twitter account for the series has announced that voice actresses Maaya Uchida and Sarah Emi Bridcutt will be joining the cast for the second season. With both of them playing twins Kaguya Yamai and Yuzuru Yamai, respectively.
