Spoilers for Date A Live Season 3
It is rumored that the season 3 of the show will have a series of dreams just like Shido used to have in the first season. These dreams will shade some light on his dreams of the graveyard and Yuri Hyuga. Date A Live Season 3 spoilers reveal that Shido will end up meeting the spirit of Alice Elliot who he met in his dream. In order to know about himself and his past, Shido will date the spirit of Alice. Alice Elliot is supposed to be a person from the Shido’s past who he doesn’t remember due to his amnesia.
In the second season when Shido talks about his fusion ability, he recalls something from his past that he once did the most powerful fusion of his understanding. He doesn’t remember the name of this being but Roger stated that he was the second person to successfully merge with this being. It is also stated in the talks that the fusion was made shortly before he lost his memory. So it can be assumed that the ultimate fusion caused him to lose his memories. Date A Live Season 3 will show Shido in search for the answers about his past that will lead him to the ultimate being. It is teased that there may be a bigger fusion in the third season that may lead to a greater destruction than the Spatial Quakes.
There are several fan theories all around the internet, such one fan theory suggests that ever since Shido has awakened the fusion he has transformed in several ways. His habits are similar to that of Yuri, even his hair color has also started changing after that. Moreover, Alice Elliot always used to refer Shido by the name of Yuri, in his dreams. It is speculated that Shido is not anyone else but Yuri and he sees his own grave in his dream. According to this theory, Shido is a spirit who doesn’t know that he is a spirit and has forgotten everything about his past. The only problem with this theory is that Shido being a Harmonixer cannot be a spirit but may be that is only why he was able to perform the ultimate fusion at first.
