Wow, people are actually thinking the plot is gonna be good? O.O. I'm going in for pure entertainment, guilty pleasure of the season. I'm expecting nothing good plot-wise.

I wouldn't say the plot is deep or anything but there are many refreshing elements which make for a fun ride.
1) main character actually aims for a harem
2) no tsundere in sight (other than the alarm clock)
3) non traditional 3 faction rivalry between angels, fallen angels and devils

Put it this way, the thread for the light novel is already over 800 posts and the translation project only started a couple months ago. That wouldn't happen if the books were just adescriptions of bouncing boobs.

Is anything? Every story tries to have something that gives it its own identity, even if it's built on the same framework as other stories that came before it.

Haha, when I meant the generic plot is that it seems to be trend from the previous few seasons for this type of anime is that they may not even have plot at all but just offer plain fan-services even though they have their own identity. At the end of the day it is just for guilty pleasure. HSDXD is actually taking a different direction despite the epi 1.

I am just saying you should give the anime a chance lol and not be taken aback by the fan-service.

well, I consider that to be: "one small step for AT-X, one giant leap for mankind"
yeah, I know... I'm exaggerating on purpose.

Why should I be taken aback by fanservice? Nonsense, I say!
(unless we're talking of Manyuu Hiken-chou)

Maybe not original, but the fact that Rias is actually nice to Isei, doesn't treat him like an idiot for not knowing all about angels and demons, doesn't pummel him for acting like a typical male during fanservice scenes ... well, it's a low bar, but after all the Shana and Louise clones out there, it's a nice change.

Absolutely, I can't support that too strongly.

Almost all ecchi shows have incompatible setups. If the guy is a honest straight-out pervert, then he's running into violent tsunderes. If the girls are aggressive, he's a dense dork with gynophobia. This show is the first one I can remember where the guy is pretty straight-out ecchi, while the girl(s) around him behave NICELY towards him. Rias doesn't mind, and is almost a bit playful in reaction to Ise's nosebleeds. He's going to be seen by her and the others as a slightly silly "little brother". That's what I wanted to express when I called the Rias family "warm".

So they did not follow all the troupes from the "I died and now serve a tsundere" anime, but borrowed some from Monogatari and ToLOVEる lolis

Anyway, it's just one episode, it might turn better later on. I keep the good yet physics-defying visuals for now

I didn't care much for physics when I was in school and certainly don't care about it nor does it matter to me now.

Boobs/10. Got what I came for, and even a bit more. I was prepared to hate the main character the second I heard his voice but his pervertedness eventually won me over. Thinking only about boobs while on the verge of death? That's my man. I'm waiting to see how he'll react to getting pussy-whipped by Rias now. I hope he'll either learn to enjoy it like a good pervert or fight back.

Hmmm at first glance it would look like another Boobs show which subdesu tends to sub. However when I saw that there is like 10 vol of novel and 11 will be released on jan 20, all I could think of is that theres need to be more to it than meets the eye.
Wonder if novels will get more translators thanks to anime.
Still there seems no info about how many eps it will have, so all I can hope is that it will be more than 12 ep generic novel animes which pop left and right for past few months.

Also I just glanced trough novels and What Yuma said was

"―Sorry. You were a threat to us so we decided to get rid of you early. If you
want to hold a grudge, then hate the God who put the Sacred Gear inside
you.‖ "

Hmmm in anime she said

"If you wish to blame someone blame the god that resides in Seiplit"


Dunno why but novel seems more clear no matter how I look at it, unless that was anime translation error as theres no info what seiplit is.

Also generic talk seems to differ, so seems that anime version will be different. Doesn't matter as I will read/watch it anyway ^^.

Since we can't really mention sub group names here... you should get the sub from the other group that did C3 instead. I have heard bad feedback about the sub you're watching.
