Awesome / Date A Live

Awesome Moments in Date A Live. Unmarked spoilers ahead.

  • Volume 2:
    • To save Yoshino, Shido crosses a five meter barrier that would likely have killed him despite his Healing Factor. He survives.
  • Volume 4:
    • Efreet curbstomping Kurumi, who had earlier taken down Mana, Tohka and Origami with ease. You don't usually see a Time Master get defeated this easily.
  • Volume 5:
    • Kyouhei Kannazuki successfully defending the Fraxinus from the Arbatel's attacks using the ship's Realizers with pinpoint defences, and getting in a sneak attack with a Realizer while already controlling 7 Realizers' worth of generated mana, certainly counts. That's right, he was controlling 8 Realizers with pinpoint accuracy, where most people can only do 1. And he made the whole thing look easy! No wonder he's the vice-commander of the Fraxinus. If not for his masochistic tendencies, he could've easily become the commander instead of Kotori.
    • After resolving their conflict, Kaguya and Yuzuru are interrupted by the Arbatel's attempt to crash into the island. Needless to say, the Yamai twins are ticked off by such a Moment Killer, so they decide to wreck the ship, as well as their army of Bandersnatch drones, with the might of their combined attack and their Angel's true form, Raphael El Kanaph.
  • Volume 6:
    • Origami in the White Licorice unit that Jessica had previously brushed off as a defective unit and delivering a serious asskicking against the incoming DEM Adeptus Wizards. Even though she ended up becoming powerless when White Licorice approaches its operation limit anyways, it shows her badassery after all her losing streaks against the Spirits.
    • Just when Origami was about to be overwhelmed, Mana swoops in with a new Power Armor, swiftly defeats the enemy commander, and throws her unconscious body at her subordinates, forcing them to retreat.
  • Volume 7:
    • Origami gets one by comparison. When Jessica makes an appearance piloting Scarlet Licorice, she is said to be completely crazed due to chanelling too much magic through her brain. Origami was capable of using White Licorice without succumbing to such effects.
    • Shido protecting Miku from Dark Tohka when Miku's spiritual energy runs out and she can't defend herself. Also counts as Heartwarming since earlier on, he had promised to risk his life to protect her if she were ever in danger, and she didn't believe him, having lost trust in humanity, especially guys, long ago.
  • Volume 9:
    • Murdock tries to kill Westcott using three satellites that he's dropping at the city. Obviously it fails but fan reaction was a big HSQ for him being that Crazy-Prepared.
  • Volume 11:
    • Shido running like a madman to push Origami's parents out of the way from one of spirit!Origami's stray attacks and takes the full brunt of the attack. Granted Death Is Cheap for Shido but props to him for having the balls to pull it off.
