Hot Springs Of Love

The girl is like the rain. Falling sometimes gently, sometimes transiently, and sometimes violently. Nothing but H2O, but its power is immense. This evening rain will be colder than usual.
― Episode narration

Frozen Field (凍て付く大地, Itetsuku Daichi?) is the fifth episode of Date A Live.


At the Itsuka Residence, Shido knocks on Tohka's room, asking her to let him explain himself. However, Tohka refuses due to still feeling upset over what happened before. Meanwhile, at the local shrine, <Hermit> stands silently alone with her puppet missing.

Later at a diner, Reine asks Tohka what's the matter before guessing that it involves Shido and the little girl. Tohka refutes that it does not concern Shido, but Reine still assumes that he may be involved. Tohka then admits that even she does not know why she is in the worst possible mood right now. Somewhere in the city, Shido, having gone grocery shopping, walks back home and takes an alleyway as a shortcut, but to his surprise he finds "Yoshinon" looking for something on the ground. He calls her name out which startles the little girl and prompts her to run away, before Shido asks her not to and he notices that she is missing her puppet. "Yoshinon" then runs to Shido, and then realizes that's what she is looking for. "Yoshinon" nods, confirming Shido's realization.

Back at the diner, Tohka expresses that she does not care who Shido is with, stating that it is none of her business. But still, she adds that it felt awful as soon as she saw Shido with "Yoshinon". Tohka remarks that hearing the puppet taunt her about Shido caring more about "Yoshinon" than her made her feel empty inside, as if she is all alone. She admits to Reine that it made her feel sad and scared more than anything she has gone through. Back with Shido, he figures out that "Yoshinon" had lost her puppet when she fled from the AST the day before, reporting to Kotori about this issue. Kotori has <Fraxinus> scan a video feed during the incident but advises Shido that he take the lead in searching for the puppet, saying that it is best that the girl's attention is focused on him. Shido then tells "Yoshinon" that they are ready when she is ready, but the little girl reveals to Shido that her real name is Yoshino and that the puppet they are looking for is Yoshinon. As Yoshino leaves, Shido gives her his umbrella, assuring the docile Spirit that he will be fine. Back in the diner with Reine and Tohka, the former assures latter that there is nothing wrong with her. Reine explains to Tohka that the kiss between Shido and Yoshino is entirely an accident, telling Tohka that it isn't true that Shido does not care about her. Still unable to believe it, Reine reminds Tohka that Shido risked his life to save her when Yoshino had gone berserk, which ultimately convinces Tohka.

Shido and Yoshino continue to search for Yoshinon in the rubble of the mall until Yoshino's stomach begins to growl. Shido asks her if she is hungry to which she quickly denies, until her stomach groans once again, embarrassing her. Kotori then contacts Shido and tells him that it would be best to take a break and eat for now, telling him that it could give him some time to ask Yoshino some questions. At the Itsuka household, Shido prepares a meal for Yoshino, telling her that she must care about Yoshinon a lot. Yoshino then says that Yoshinon is both her best friend and personal hero, which surprises Shido. Yoshino continues on saying that she wants to become someone like Yoshinon; someone brave and strong. Yoshino concludes that she will, however, not become someone like her, but Shido states that he likes her just the way she is, which quickly embarrasses Yoshino. Shido asks if there is something wrong, but Yoshino says that nobody has said that before to her and thanks Shido. Kotori sarcastically comments on what Shido had just said. After eating, Shido asks Yoshino why she never fights back against the AST. Yoshino responds by saying that she does not like violence or being afraid. Yoshino then says that people must hate someone like that. She then continues by saying how she is afraid, always freezing up when she gets scared. After explaining, Shido pets her head and upon being asked why, he proclaims to Yoshino that he is here to protect her and that they will find Yoshinon, but she does not need to rely on her anymore as he will be her hero now.

Maid Origami opportunist

Origami the opportunist.

Deeply moved, Yoshino thanks Shido for his kindness. Shido then apologizes for the incident between them yesterday but then tries to kiss her to seal Yoshino's power, however, Tohka arrives trying to apologize to him and catches both him and Yoshino, much to his dismay. Yoshino then disappears upon seeing Tohka and as Shido is about to explain, Tohka angrily leaves. Kotori then contacts Shido and tells him that they found where Yoshinon is. In her room, Tohka lets her anger out on her pillow. Later, Shido visits Origami, with Kotori confirming to Shido that she had taken Yoshinon during the aftermath, but as the two talk, Shido's communication with Kotori gets mysteriously broken up. Shido then reaches Origami's room and when he rings the doorbell, it suddenly swings open and he is surprised to see Origami wearing a maid's outfit. Inside, after a rather awkward moment just to make Shido call her by her first name instead, Origami takes a shower, giving Shido his chance to look for Yoshinon. After looking through almost every corner of her room, amidst very scandalous and suggestive knickknacks, Shido is able to locate and retrieve the puppet. Just at that moment, Origami finishes her shower and goes to meet Shido wearing just a towel, to Shido's complete embarrassment. Onboard <Fraxinus>, Kotori and her crew are trying to reestablish their communication with Shido.

Back with Shido, Origami asks him what Shido is, remembering the time she had accidentally shot him. Shido then asks Origami if she has ever talked to the Spirits before. As Origami asks what he means, Shido answers by saying that he has talked to them before to her horror and utter disbelief. Origami warns Shido that she believes to be dangerous. However, Shido calmly insists to Origami that not all Spirits are as bad as she thinks and that Spirits like Tohka and Yoshino are good and that he is going to help Yoshino, as well as telling her that he won't abandon Tohka. Shido then asks Origami to promise him that she won't hurt good people, telling Origami that he knows she is a good person as well, but Origami reminds Shido that, though they may be good, the Spirits are still the cause of the Spacequakes. Then at that moment, Origami's phone rings, prompting her to leave immediately. But before she can, Shido requests for Origami to stop attacking Yoshino if her powers give out. However, Origami tells him that she will still follow her orders, even if what happens is something she doesn’t want to do.

Somewhere in the city, Yoshino is being chased and attacked by the AST. She tries to lose them but is cornered by Ryouko, who manages to momentarily knock her down. As Ryouko opens fire on her, Yoshino summons <Zadkiel>, causing the area around her to freeze as the AST continues firing at her again. However, this time she counters by freezing two members, leaving only Origami and Ryouko to chase after Yoshino. As she retreats from them, Yoshino hears Shido calling out to her. She is able to see Shido, stopping in her tracks. When Shido is about to give her back Yoshinon, Origami fires at Yoshino, hitting her Angel and scaring Yoshino. Ryouko spots Shido and warns him of the danger. <Zadkiel> then begins to attack again, but with Shido in front of the oncoming blast. From afar, Tohka sees what is happening and seeing that Shido is in danger, she tries to summon <Sandalphon> but strangely can't. After many failed attempts, Tohka is able to summon her Angel just in time, protecting Shido from <Zadkiel>. Yoshino then retreats once again, with the AST on her tail still. Tohka then goes to Shido and apologizes to him for her behavior recently, but Shido apologizes to her instead but asks her to help him save Yoshino. Upon hearing him say this, Tohka sadly expresses how Yoshino seems to be more important to Shido than her, as Yoshino is trapped by the AST. Shido then clears up the whole misunderstanding and reveals to Tohka that Yoshino is a Spirit as well. Origami then tries to finish Yoshino off, but she is able to break free using her Angel. Shido tells Tohka that he had promised Yoshino that he would do whatever he could to protect her. However, he can not do it on his own, so he pleads with Tohka to help him.

Touched by Shido's words, Tohka decides to help him. Meanwhile, a blizzard has erupted from Yoshino's Angel, preventing the AST from attacking. Origami, however, uses her Realizer to lift a nearby building, using it to strike the moment the blizzard goes down. Her attempt is proven futile, as the building is shredded by a mysterious energy, which Origami manages to dodge. Tohka is revealed to be the cause, and upon seeing her, Origami immediately engages her in a duel. The rest of the AST then chase after Tohka as well upon spotting her. As Tohka distracts them, Shido arrives near the blizzard, a very concerned Kotori contacts him. She warns Shido that it could be fatal if he goes through the barrier without any sort of protection, even with his regenerative power. Shido jokingly comments on Kotori's concern for him, but she reminds Shido that the blizzard is much deadlier than being shot by a single bullet, meaning he could die if his Reiryoku goes down. Regardless, Shido continues forward into the blizzard to Yoshino, despite Kotori's pleas for him to stop. Inside the blizzard dome, Yoshino cries out Yoshinon's name but to her surprise, she sees Yoshinon carried by Shido who then falls to the ground. Yoshino runs to Shido as his wounds begin to heal themselves. She is relieved that Shido came to her aid, even more so when Shido brings her back Yoshinon, which causes Yoshino to cry tears of joy.

Shido then sits back up and assures Yoshino that everything will be fine, but she thanks him for being nice to her and for saving Yoshinon. Shido then says to Yoshino that it is her time to be saved, but that he must kiss her in order to do so, which seemingly upsets Yoshino. Noticing this, Shido takes it back by saying that it was just a joke, but Yoshino stands up and kisses him. Afterwards, Yoshino's Astral Dress and the blizzard disappear, clearing the sky with a visible rainbow that both Shido and Yoshino see. Back in Fraxinus, Shido introduces Tohka to Yoshino. Kotori suddenly opens the door and instantly punches Shido in the stomach, insulting him for walking into the extremely dangerous blizzard. However, Kotori then hugs Shido and starts crying out of worry for him doing something so reckless. The next day, Shido asks what is going on, referring to the new building standing next to their house. Kotori reveals it to be a special housing unit built for the Spirits, saying that Tohka will then move out and instead live at the special house alongside Yoshino. The Itsuka siblings then turn around and see Yoshino, who is wearing casual clothing, running to their side and greeting them. Shido cheerfully greets Yoshino as well, which makes her happy.

The episode ends as all three of them look at the new house just as Yoshinon suddenly pops up on the screen and says that it is not over yet, as the story will still continue.
