Through Twitter, GEEK TOYS studios posted an update commenting on their role in the animated production of the fourth season of the Date A Live anime. “After the production of Date A Bullet, we will do our best to produce the fourth season of Date A Live! Please look forward to it!” The account wrote.

(Hensuki: Are you willing to fall in love with a pervert, as long as she’s a cutie?).
On the other hand, this fourth season of the animated adaptation of the light novels written by Koushi Tachibana and illustrated by Tsunako has its premiere scheduled in Japan for next October. The franchise will also make important announcements on March 19, to commemorate its 10th anniversary.
