Date A Live IV Episode 1 Spoilers

In the first three seasons, Shidou has managed to make spirits like Yatogami, Himekawa, Itsuka, Kaguya, Yuzuru, Natsumi, Origami, and Izayoi fall in love with him, following which he also succeeded in sealing their magic with a kiss. However, he still needs to do the same to Tokisaki Kurumi, who, despite her vested interest, has avoided Shidou’s attempts to seal her powers. In the case of Origami, the protagonist not only has to make her fall in love but also has to deal with her fragile mental state because of the things that happened to her.

In season 4, the anime is expected to take a step back and delve deeper into the origins of spirits and their powers. Furthermore, the strange connection between Shidou and the spirits is also expected to be revealed. Since the protagonist is yet to seal the powers of Tokisaki, fans will finally get to learn what eventually happens to her. The fragile tension between the A.T.S. and Ratatoskr is likely to lead to some unexpected conflicts.
