I hear what you're saying, but I still don't like the concept of his promotion in enemy territory. My issue w/ it is that if he's ever alone, he can't utilize his full battle skills since Risa ultimately controls those. Sure, he has his sacred gear which is one of the best ones, but still... I feel as if he's fighting w/ a handicap compared to the rest of his team. I do agree w/ you in terms of getting strong mentally. That will ultimately help him control his sacred gear better and become more skilled in various battle scenarios.
same too got feeling seeing yuma human form really issei got mix feeling a bit give just could not pull "kill trigger" cause of past he used to had & one mistake all together.

really just like i don't want it anymore so yea let risa rid of the past.

I don't think they have time for fillers or even wished for a filler. They showed character up to vol 3 so I'm not sure on what end they will be on but the way they express that enemy in the op that much give me a sign of him being a final boss of the season even though his from vol 2. And a little editing of the order of when it happen won't be much of a problem as long as they don't ruin it.

It seemed to me Rias and Akeno were just drawing their attention away from Issei and co. Akeno didn't even seem to fight back. All she did was put up barriers.

Of course, all of that changed when Rias got pissed off.

Would I say that the conclusion to this arc felt very epic and more so than the LOTR:The Return of the King? Heck, why not!!

Issei's performance in this episode was epic manly no matter how much of a foolhard idiot he is he never limped due to the damage he took from Reinalle.

Reinalle, on the other hand, behave splendidly as the evil, two-faced, bitch that she was all along, and since Issei clashed again against her I was rooting for a long-time enmity between them like those featured in shounen shows. Though I got my wish granted, it's unfortunate to learn that Reynalle no longer will be in this show.
Spoiler:


As for Rias, I'm glad she's the manipulative type that cares deeply for their servant's growth to plan ahead for situations where their servants will have free rein to make their own choices, so as to properly refine and polish their skills.
Spoiler:


Also, the episode made us clear that no one makes fun of Rias' servants and going away scot-free without paying up the consequences; those Fallen Angels picked-up the wrong Devil Red King to tease.
Spoiler:


But, at the end of Reynalle's aftermath, Rias took a bet that went successful...
Spoiler:


So, the old Issei is back to his pervness, but he at least managed to grow considerably if only was in both abilities and with his friends. The first story arc is over, but I'm looking forward as to what the rest of the show has to offer.

Issei managed to save Asia, but a bit too late for her.
Kiba & Koneko sure make a nice cover team when in a pinch.
Reinare is one scary, annoying bitch.
Issei in berserk mode was awesome to watch!
Guess all is well that ends well. Great episode!

I watched this episode 3 times, mostly because of Issei's performance. I like Issei's character because unlike a lot of generic harem lead they're giving us these days (some of them are queer or just jerks), he's a fun loving, affectionate, PURE, silly idiot. And not many go into rage mode like he does.

well, I like this anime becasue the good story and the nice design and some few other stuff. Totally enjoyed watching every episode and waiting every week for a new one.

But I got a friend ( called Shiso) and he refuse to watch it, he saw a lot of anime and I keep convincing him that this Anime is quite good.
He watched episode 1 and keep saying that it is hentai and those stuff and he refuse to watch it anymore. Well, do he is obviously wrong in my opinion and how about you guys, does this anime has a good story line or does it only about hentai?

I'm not kidding, when Asia and Issei were talking about going to school, going to karaoke, picking more flowers I felt incredibly emotional and I was about to cry as well.. I completely understand how Issei feels since he knows that he is her first friend; a lovely caring one as well. I don't really care whether he is perverted or not or wants to be a harem king.. Seeing this episode proves to me and clearly shows his true inner self.

And, let's face it, how many guys DON'T have perverted fantasies at times?

Even before Asia, we see with "Yuuma-chan" that despite his perverseness early on, he really DOES care and did his very best to show her a good time on their "date", so unlike SOME male harem leads, he may have fantasies, but he doesn't exactly act on them or, so far, even end up in those typical situations that we tend to find such leads in either.

Sasha (of Qwaser of Stigmata) is another harem lead that gives him a more sensitive, different and affectionnate touch.

I remember that I love these two (Qwaser is more fanservice-heavy than DxD).

Back to DxD thread, I also remember that I drawed two illustrations (both involving Rias), but I haven't uploading them. I was surprised that this anime gives a different approach of harem genre and it keeps me watching until the end.

Both of these characters are tsundere ! I liked them !!

If I recall, a few people complained with the last episode and more specifically to that shot of Asia's bared left breast showing. A fanservice shot that was uncalled for at a scene that packed tense momentum when Asia got tied onto that cross while Reynalle was extracting the former's Healing Twilight.

Well, talking about uncalled for and distasteful, fanservice shots then mine will be complaining for this episode about leaving her breast uncovered at a scene packing much gloom and drama delivered by Issei.

Yup it was put out quite clearly by Rias herself later on.

Does anyone else think that bringing back Asia as a devil was really mean?

She was this very good and religious girl and now she is dammed and can't be with god and goto heaven,

Better to reign in Hell than to serve in Heaven. And besides, she's still cheery, helpful, got enough MP to heal the team in dire situations... that's not being damned, that's being damned good.

Also can't forget that it was about Devils and Demons fighting FALLEN Angels, which really aren't any better. After all, Lucifer/Satan/The Devil is a Fallen Angel himself.

Well, being a devil evidently doesn't stop anyone from being a good person nor does it warp their personality, so Asia is pretty safe on that front, at least within Rias' group. Her appreciation for church largely seems to stem for the fact they took her in and raised her when she was abandoned as a baby (until they cast her out for a silly reason anyway), so I'm sure she will get over that pretty quickly as well - her biggest wish is to have some companionship/friends after all, and within Rias' group she is likely to have more of it than she ever had before, and genuine at that.
