Date A Live has finally come back to screens for its fourth season of the anime, and has debuted brand new opening and ending theme sequences to kick it all off! Koshi Tachibana and Tsunako’s original light novel series had one of the most notable anime adaptations of the 2010s because it’s been such an irregular ride over the course of its seasons thus far. The third season of the anime came to an end a few years ago, and fans were surprised to see that the series had a fourth season was in the works for a release this year.
Date A Live has finally returned for Season 4 as part of the Spring 2022 anime schedule, and like each of the seasons before it, the fourth season has been tackled by a new studio and some changes to the production team behind the scenes. The fourth season of the anime also means a new opening and ending theme sequence in tow too. The new opening theme is titled “OveR” as performed by Miyu Tomita, and the new ending theme is titled “S.O.S.” as performed by sweet ARMS. You can check out both of the new themes below as released by Kadokawa:
