Who Will Be In The Voice Cast Of 'Date A Live' Season 5?

In the upcoming series, Nobunaga Shimazaki will once again lend his voice to the central character, Shido Itsuka. Joining him are returning voice actors Maria Inoue (as Tohka Yatogami), Iori Nomizu (portraying Yoshino Hamekawa), Misuzu Togashi (in the role of Origami Tobiichi), Asami Sanada (voicing Kurumi Tokisaki), Ayana Taketatsu (as Kotori Itsuka), Minori Chihara (playing Miku Izayoi), Ayumi Mano (as Natsumi Kyouno), Sarah Emi Bricutt (in the role of Yuzuru Yamai), Maaya Uchida (voicing Kaguya Yamai), Hitomi Nabatame (as Nia Honjou), and Akari Kageyama (in the role of Mukuro Hoshimiya). These actors will continue their portrayals of the spirits.

Additionally, Takehito Koyasu (as Kyouhei Kannazuki), Ao Takahashi (portraying Ryouko Kusakabe), and Misato (in the role of Mana Takamiya) are returning to voice the supporting characters. The antagonists will again be voiced by Ryoutarou Okiayu (as Isaac Wescott), Shizuka Ito (portraying Ellen Mathers), Yumiri Hanamori (as Nibelcole), and Eriko Matsui (in the role of Artemisia Ashcroft). Aya Endou, who has been the voice of Reine Murasame since the first season, will continue in her role. Reine Murasame, initially a helper to Shido and others, emerged as a significant plot twist at the end of "Date a Live IV" when revealed to be Phantom, a major antagonist introduced in the third season. Aya Endou will also voice the main antagonist and the Spirit of Origin, Mio Takamiya.

What Will The Plot Of 'Date A Live' Season 5 Be?

The story for Date A Live Season 5 could be based on the light novel book series by author Koushi Tachibana and illustrator Tsunako. Until an official announcement is made, fans can keep busy with the fourth season of the series, which has been challenging Shido more so than ever before. Shido has been romancing the Spirits he has met over the course of the series so far; some of them seem to have tougher outer layers that they need to break through. You can stream Date A Live's fourth season as well as the three that came before with Crunchyroll. According to Comic Book, they tease the latest season as such, "With multiple Spirits now living with him, Shido's juggling act of giving ladies attention is never-ending. On top of that, more Spirits arrive for him to put the charm on. As he seals more and more, with his intentions unknown to them, will he be able to keep this up or will it lead to one big, giant spatial quake?"
