Up to vol 10, the only thing that I didn't like about Ise was that he was always mumbling "She (Rias, Akeno, Asia,...) will get a boyfriend, it made me so sad..." when he had already done plenty things with them (kissing, mutual nakedness ). But yeah, we couldn't blame him for that because of a "certain trauma", and the girls were at fault as well, Rias and Akeno treated him like a pet and a cute junior to mess with (though that wasn't their intention), Asia was like a sister...etc...

Oh well, there is no need to talk about these anymore

Just one thing I still want to complain about him

, yeah, I kinda guessed it, but it's kinda sad though because among our recent "heroes", only Kirito has been "allowed" to step up to become a man (well, SAO was originally a web novel so fair enough ).

Let alone the "thing", I just wanna see more development between Ise and the girls (everybody around here also wants that too, right?), and more kisses!!!!! We have so much of "ecchiness" that the romance itself has been somewhat neglected. If DxD also implemented the kiss scenes in Campione, then it would be perfect

Well, didn't it also happen in the first book? That basically makes it "status quo" without being "tainted". Also, it was virtual, so she's still a virgin technically.

The author can barely even handle writing the characters he has now. He doesn't need to increase that workload.

At the risk of going slightly off topic, there is no indication that they didn't continue to do it once they got out of the game. Actually its implied that they do, its just not really important. It wasn't "just virtual" to them even in SAO.

Thats really the best way to do it imo. It doesn't need to go to the extremes of showing all or doing nothing. If the story would get too risque just imply it and skip it. The audience can fill in the blanks.

Even though it's been long since Volume 1, does the term Sekiryuutei refer to Ise or to Ddraig or both...I can't seem to figure it out ?

The term refers to both of them. It also refers to all the past possessors of the Boosted Gear too.

Yes Issei is the Red Dragon Emperor, Ddraig is the Welsh Dragon, Heavenly Dragon or Red Dragon.
So ie;
Draig= Sekiryuu
Issei= SekiryuuTEI

Ddraig is known as Welsh Dragon and the Red Dragon Emperor (赤龍帝 Sekiryūtei). Ever since Ddraig was sealed into the Boosted Gear, all of his possessors have taken the name of Sekiryuutei aka Red Dragon Emperor. The same case with Albion, Vali and all the past possessors of the Divine Dividing are also known as the White Dragon Emperor.

赤-Red (Usually pronounced as Aka but is Seki in this case)
龍-Dragon
帝-Emperor

I like Issei as a character for the most part, but the sheer obsession on boobs kinda hurts the character.

And i wish we'd get shown more of his actual power level, but that's often a problem with combat light novels, no matter how good the characters are, their opponents keep ramped up equally for every fight so they never actually look strong even while being told how strong they are (total fail in the "show, don't tell" part, same thing often happens with the intelligent, persuasive and tactical genius characters), some of the best fight scenes was the ranking match with that devil guy, and the first time that Issei went into juggernaut mode and ate that one asshole (that was badass, pity we won't see anymore of that).

iI like the whole series, but i wish the fanservice was scaled down by a LOT, because it distracts from the story (i fucking hate the whole oppai dragon and switch princess idea), but i keep reading becuase the story between the ecchi scenes is good enough to make it worth it to suffer through the ecchi parts.

I know, right? I also wish that the author would tone down the "ecchiness" for a bit (not completely for obvious reasons ) and put more emphasis on the "romance". Seriously, it took 10 volumes for Ise to have some really "fundamental" development with the girls, especially Rias....

Well Issei, post death, is actually not as obsessed. Sure the fixation is still there. But ever since he's started dating the girls and has been getting new goals for himself Issei seems more mature to me. Granted not by much. But baby steps, y'know?

^ Well, personally, I think that it's a good thing that Ise's development is slow, since it means that there is still some time before this story is going to end.

Is no like that Isse had the chance to show his true character before he become Devil.

Between his past life as human with his two pervert friends and the Trauma he gain from "who you know" (XD). I think is normal that is character develops slowly and in all honestly I agree with Chris38 on this.

Well, for me, Isseis growth parallels a normal human teenager. Well maybe slightly slower. As he gets more and more "experience" with the opposite sex he becomes desensitized and gets accustomed to them. Just like I'm sure most of the guys here have become. When I was younger I couldn't go 10 seconds without thinking about sex, now that I've had multiple lovers, girlfriends and flings I can't believe the way I used to be.

I love Issei's character. His pervert ways to being a nice guy in general really makes me enjoy his character. He is my Favorite harem main character lead. He is honest about what he loves and I liked the growth that he had during the time he spent with the girls. I love his interactions with Rias. As while as the other girls. He will become the strongest pawn as well as becoming Harem King.
