More than a year after the fifth season’s initial announcement, Date A Live season 5 published fresh character images for the forthcoming episode on Monday, August 28, 2023. No new voice actors have been added to the ensemble cast seen in the character images from earlier seasons.
It has been fascinating to see the character images for Date A Live season 5, but there is still no broad release window or even a set day and hour for the show to air. The release of the character images, on the other hand, will probably signal the beginning of the season promotion. Fans can, therefore, anticipate learning more about this in the future months.
Date A Live Season 5 Characters Lineup And Visuals
The main characters from the fifth season of Date A Live are shown in the character images. Accordingly, they are Tohka Yatogami, Shido Itsuka, Kotori Itsuka, Origami Tobiichi, Yoshino, and Miku Izayoi. Marina Inoue, Nobunaga Shimazaki, Ayana Taketatsu, Misuzu Togashi, Iori Nomizu, and Minori Chihara, respectively, perform these roles.

Date A Live Plot
You can watch every episode of Date A Live so far, both dubbed and subbed, on Crunchyroll as we wait for the unspecified return date for Shindo and Company. Accordingly, Crunchyroll’s description of the series is as follows:
“Ordinary high school boy Shido discovers a mysterious girl at ground zero of a recent spacequake. Shido learns, through his sister Kotori, that the girl is one of the Spirits: mystical creatures responsible for the spacequakes. Shido is recruited to help “seal” the spirits and end 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.”
Date A Live Season 5 Release Date
As we eagerly await the unveiling of Date A Live Season 5, it’s important to address the burning question: when will it be released? While the previous four seasons are available for streaming on Crunchyroll, there hasn’t been an official announcement regarding the release date of the fifth season.
However, it’s reasonable to expect that Crunchyroll will continue to be the go-to platform for streaming the show once the new season is launched. As for its availability for international audiences, that detail remains shrouded in mystery for now.
Date A Live Light Novel
Although, the fifth season of Date A Live will go on adapting the plot from the original light novels, which were written and illustrated by Tsunaki and Koshi Tachibana, respectively. The fifth season of the anime adaptation will be the last in the series even though the light book series has been over for quite some time.
With Tsunako’s drawings, Koushi Tachibana debuted the original light novel series in March 2011. The 22nd and final book was released under Kadokawa’s Fantasia Bunko imprint in March 2020. The novels are being published in English by Yen Press.
Numerous manga and video games have taken their cues from the light novels. After a delay, Compile Heart launched Date A Live Ren Dystopia on the PlayStation 4 in September 2020.
Also, a two-part theatrical anime adaptation was inspired by Yuichiro Higashide’s spinoff novels for Date A Live Fragment: Date A Bullet. Date A Bullet: The first movie, Dead or Bullet, premiered in Japan in August 2020. Date A Bullet: The second movie, Nightmare or Queen, debuted in November 2020.
