The anime Date A Live V, the latest season of Date A Live, will be here in April, and ahead of this a trailer has dropped. In it you can hear the opening theme song “Paradoxes” being performed by Miyu Tomita.

You don’t hear it in the trailer, but the ending theme song is called “Hitohira” and performed by sweet ARMS. The new season will consist of 12 episodes. It’s being made at Geek Toys, with Jun Nakagawa continuing to helm the project as director.

Aya Endo is new to the anime and playing Mio Takamiya, but mostly the season will have the same actors as before: Marina Inoue plays Tohka Yatogami, Nobunaga Shimazaki plays Shido Itsuka, Misuzu Togashi plays Origami Tobiichi, Ayana Taketatsu plays Kotori Itsuka, Iori Nomizu plays Yoshino, Asami Sanada plays Kurumi Tokisaki, Maaya Uchida plays Kaguya Yamai, Sarah Emi Bridcutt plays Yuzuru Yamai, Minori Chihara plays Miku Izayoi, Ayumi Mano plays Natsumi, Hitomi Nabatame plays Nia Honjō, and Akari Kageyama plays Mukuro Hoshimiya.

Yen Press publishes the original Date A Live light novels and gave this description for their plot:

A little meet-cute in a decimated city April 10. The first day of school. Shido Itsuka is rudely awoken by his personal alarm clock-his little sister. It’s shaping up to be another typical day…well, as typical as it gets on a planet plagued by massive spatial quakes. Little does Shido know, however, his life is about to take a sudden turn when he encounters the source of this destructive phenomenon-a girl his age, apparently known as a Spirit. Turns out, there are only two ways he can stop her from unleashing hell on the world: Eliminate her by force or placate her…by taking her out on a date and making her fall in love with him!
