Ah.... I don't think it would go down that path. At least I hope it doesn't, that's something that's going to make me go "Why so serious" as I would feel heavily betrayed from all that laughs and harem comedy and fanservice the series fed me from the start

So I keep something else in mind: Ichiban Ushiro no Daimaou. That dude was a Demon King from the start, and it wasn't something he chose or could change either. He wasn't all belligerent and happily destroying peaceful days left and right, and the series fed my harem comedy and fanservice appetite quite well without him using his powers for evil. Sure I don't know how the story is since the end of the anime adaption, but it went well, and I hope DxD goes just as well.

After all, Rias-chan sort of gave off an air of discontent over the thought of losing Issei, suggesting she just might actually be tired of the whole losing loved ones thing the 3 way war is bringing to her.

Sorry, the disgusting fatalism of Thrones left such a bad taste in the mouth that I don't ever want to taste it EVER again.
The fact that they are biblical demons are to be honest, little of importance.
I believe this universe of theirs is inhabited by far, far more deities than they let on.

I don't think you need to worry too much about the depiction of accuracy in religious sense, you'll stop caring about it once the ball starts rolling.

Here I actually thought after the first two episodes that the series was being a somewhat faithful adaptation too. Not if those are anything to go by though.

Sure, Rias-Oneechan and CO seems to be decent person.

Right Now, at least.

But is it only an act (like QB of Puella Magika Madoka Magi) that will be dropped as soon as it loses its necessity, before drawing Isse into a life where he has to laugh while killing babies, burning cities while causing endless misery and suffering like a TRUE Devil?

Or is this a hopeful universe where you can be a kind, decent and good-hearted person who wants to make the world a kinder and gentler place even if you ARE a Devil?

Sorry, the disgusting fatalism of Thrones left such a bad taste in the mouth that I don't ever want to taste it EVER again.
The way I see it, since
Spoiler:
in their world, there is no real war between good and evil any more. There is only PROFIT; granting wishes to humans apparently get the Devils some sort of currency.
Evil for evil's sake is meaningless to them. That's not how they make a living. They are simply competing against other, very real, rival supernatural beings from other cultures/religions.

Why do they have to torture me by making her last

Akenocchi better not have her moment to shine in episode 05, or else I will write an open letter to all production companies insisting that they stop making fun of me

I agree i never understood why viewers knowing what a series is about and knowing they will object to its content continue to watch and then complain through out the season. I have seen way worse stories than the this and the fanservice is not all that horrible.

Dont like dont watch or at explain why you dont like it and let the matter RIP

Ah, but not all of us read mangas or look at VNs. My sole expose to the media is what episodes I see so should it be surprising that I comment on what I'm viewing? And no, I haven't seen Horizon. I turned that one off somewhere around episode five (and got bitched about because I was being critical of the series).

Horizon is a great serie. You just stopped where it was starting to be great.

About this third episode : Laser boobs : ROFL. I can't stop laughing

Laser boobs aside, the second half was actually interesting... I hope Asia's punishment doesn't get interrupted next next time

Also can not stress enough how Koneko's specialty "take any type of attack" is useful in another context and I thought she was just cosplaying expert

ok, honestly... this is becoming a tad bit too ridiculous/over-the-top for my tastes (both in terms of "fanservice" and in terms of everything else) -- although, the Asia-scenes were indeed delicious. but rather than Queen's Blade, I'm more reminded of Qwaser s1/s2

on other news: 4th and final flash-game is a go!

Then I shall kindly remind you you are complaining about the wrong things. There were a number of previews and talk here before the series began, and the content was well established without delving into the novel or manga adaptions. I find it a little difficult to imagine that you randomly downloaded something called "Highschool DxD" and not seeing at least a description about it

And like Koosa said, you turned off Horizon just when it turned on the fun. You went that far, it couldn't have hurt to go a little more of the better part
