This is what Date A Live is about:
Seemingly ordinary high school student Shido Itsuka meets a mysterious girl during a space quake. She is one of the "ghosts" whose arrival on Earth triggers destructive spacequakes, the kind that killed more than 150 million people in Eurasia 30 years ago. Immediately after Shido's encounter with the mysterious spirit, mecha fighters arrive and start firing at the girl. In the midst of the battle, Shido is rescued by the commander of the secret organization's sophisticated airship, the Ratatoskr. Another surprise awaits him on board the ship: Shido is recruited to fight the ghost girls and thus save humanity from annihilation. But there's a catch: in order to seal a ghost's powers, he must make her fall in love with him…!
