Date A Live III to Have 12 Episodes

Date A Live Season 3 to Have 12 EpisodesDate A Live is back this month, and it’s just been confirmed the season will last 12 episodes.

Date A Live III, which hits January 11, features the cast and crew of previous seasons, including director Keitaro Motonaga and script supervisor Hideki Shirane. New studio, though: Date A Lives I and II were animated by AIC PLUS+ and Production IMS, but III brings things over to J.C. Staff.

Voice actor Ayumi Mano joins the cast as Seventh Spirit Natsumi.

The opening theme song will be performed by group sweet ARMS, while the ending theme will be provided by Eri Yamazaki.

Funimation released I and II, but no U.S. streaming information has been announced for III as of yet.

Here’s how Funimation describes the first season:

In a world devastated by mysterious Spatial Quakes, Shidoh 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, Shidoh’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, Shidoh 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 Shidoh!
