that mad priest near the end reminds me of one thing:

Excalibur Excalibur
From United Kingdom
I'm looking for him.
I'm going to California.

Yeah, the earlier lazy pans notwithstanding, this part of the ED was a really pretty piece of animation and just really nicely done -- you can tell that's where all the time/budget for the ED went. I liked that they did something different this time.


That aside (unrelated to the above), it seems like I have to remind everyone everywhere:

1. No future novel information in episode threads.

2. All comparisons or novel information from the past need to be spoiler-tagged.

3. If you want novel-based answers, go to the Q&A thread or the novel sub-forum.

The ecchi stuff is as ever and I couldn't care less, but there just isn't any anime to watch today... (Come to think of it, this anime was originally a morning anime, right?)
The ikemen guy suddenly got really dark, some twintail with a really squeaky anime voice appeared
And the highlight of the episode was the reappearance of the crazy priest. Rather, his voice actor. Ganbare.

The first season's ED was so... um, wow, but this season's... or is this the incomplete ED?
?
I hope so anyways.

Where did Shokotan go...

OP was catchy, Rias sexy as ever. Akeno is now showing some interest in Issei, Asia has tough competitors hehehe and Kiba's story looks interesting

OPPAAAIIII!!!

Great to see this anime back. Akeno is as amazing as ever while boobs are everywhere. That, and some actual plot just makes this episode even more interesting.

Awawawa, Rias! My red beauty! You have returned! You made you're introduction to the second season beautifully :3

Aww, the opening wasn't as *Ahem* revealing as he first seasons opening No matter! The cute response of Asia wanting to both naked along with Rias in the beginning totally made up for it And Koneko with the strawberry panties, very subtle since she does enjoy her food

Akeno with her hair down

It seems every character was dedicated some time to give individual fan service for the first half of the episode. We surprisingly had some Kiba backstory which was interesting, I actually like Kiba's character a lot so that made me happy

Huba huba, 12:09 into episode 1 would make quite the signature If allowed of course

I liked the ED, but it's no StudyXStudy. I'm not sure much of anything else will be, frankly.

Ise needs some new friends, but I think that was established last season.

The episode was certainly a run & gun missed a few details but still doesnt stop me from giving a 9/10

I'm so glad this show is back. I missed it so much. I figured right off the bat it'd be a serious breast-fest. There's nothing wrong with that of course. Funny, charming, and all around great.

It's already #38 on My Anime List. Watch out Attack on Titan, there's a new sheriff in town.

Perhaps it's just me, but does anyone else feels that the set up for this arc is a tad bit convenient? Yuuto who lost himself upon seeing holy sword on Issei's childhood picture, two mysterious girls in robe who are apparently have something to do with it, and the re-appearance of the white haired priest with holy sword in his hand. It's hard for me to suspend my disbelief or brushed all of them as mere coincidences.

Another thing that left me cringed a lot is the way Rias behaves. I respected her a lot in the first season as a smart, mature, and dignified woman. Yet here, the way she easily strip herself and even sleeps in nothing but her birthday suit with a guy (and i'm sure it's not intended for comedic effect), totally obliterates my respect for her.

You realize she did that at least twice in the first season as well, right?

Not only that (it literally happened at the end of the first episode of the first season, which this is clearly a call-back to), but it's especially in-character for her at this point given that she's in love with Issei. She even force-moved to his house to be closer to him after he basically confessed to her at the end of last season.

That doesn't stop her from still being the smart, dignified leader and battle commander, at least in this story.

Rias is still smart, mature, and dignified woman. You notice that she didn't shown a hint of embarrassment when she did those act showing she has the resolution of what a dignified woman is. Especially during the last minutes of the episode, she is the King and thus the leader, she was aware of what happened to Kiba's behavior and tried to knock him out of it.

As for the top part of the your post, can't really answer to that. Its kind of hard for me to explain it without spoiling, it stem from my time in Economics where it is built in me to answer any question completely with no plot holes so sorry about that.

Well they are devils... and Rias noble as well, with the Gremory family known to be eccentric (but then I think most of the noble cast in DxD are eccentric)

In the DxD world, devils(side) are a race of people who value pursue to their desires. Ever since the end of season1, why Rias wouldn't want a HQ Ise Dakimakura every night is beyond comprehension.

Well, after watching the subbed version of the episode, my feelings on the matter of the anime, haven't changed.

It was a good start, and I can't wait to see, what is going to happen next.

The only thing that I'm a little put off about, is the fact that they ended the episode with a cliffhanger ... since, it makes the wait for the next episode a little more painful, but that's a pretty minor detail, that hasn't made the first episode, less enjoyable for me.
