Considering Asia has been living under the same roof as he, it's almost surprising that nothing scandalous has happened yet. (Or maybe those scenes aren't just shown to us...)

It's not as if Issei doesn't find her attractive either, but despite his perv instincts he still has a sense of what is right in his view. He comes off conflicted in a way: drawn to her charms yet going protective big brother all over her for her sake. Knowing what she's been through, Issei seems to be very concerned about her well-being and watches out for her in his own way.

But of course, the future Harem King shall not be stopped! Hearing his passionate plea to save the slime as if it were his own kin, one cannot help but witness something rare in this world that is undoubtedly great..! A man at his truest. A man who knows who and what he is, and does not shy away from himself.

@mangatron: Well, the three of them (Akeno, Kirika, and Sera), apart from their ponytails share a deep interest in BSDM

As for the episode itself, as weird as it might sound, I expected more ecchi, Asia's crucifixion and resurrection episodes were definitely hotter, and even had plot development... not that I cared really, just saying

As awesome as that sounds, the circumstances that would cause her to say that are not desirable.

I knew that preview would generate an enormous response from the community lol. Im not betting on anything yet we all know that Issei imagines a lot of things throughout the day this could be one of them. But if its not i have no idea how any red blooded male could say no to that i mean seriously how could you say NO. I think the only reason i didnt die from blood loss is because it wasn't my queen Akeno saying it looks like Mangatron and i once again share the same taste in women lol

^ Because the events that would lead her to saying something like that are probably a good deal less joyous than the proposition itself We see that blond guy in the preview as well, and considering Rias' previous pondering on romance/love and all, I'll eat my hat if that isn't her fiance. I'll also eat my hat if he doesn't turn out to be a complete jerk.

With that in mind, I wouldn't be surprised that his entrance means he has arrived to claim Rias, whether that means taking her back to the underworld for their ceremony (do demons have that ?) or whatever else usual cliche you can think of along those lines. Since it's fairly unlikely that Rias feels anything but distaste for the guy, but if family matters force her to marry him regardless, I could see her wanting to have her first time with someone she ... well, I won't say loves, but feels at least some semblance of affection towards.

Considering that she seems fairly distraught in said scene (compared to her usual composure), and considering that Issei actually feels fairly strongly about the need to have truthful feelings in a relationship, I don't think he will jump at the chance at all - initial drool face aside.

At any rate, I expect the final arc of the anime to be about Issei and co somehow snatching Rias away from the clutches of said guy, pound him in the ground in the process, and things returning to how they used to be ... minus one former fiance, who will get a taste of the dragon's claw.

Or I could be completely wrong, but I'd be surprised if that were the case, considering the anime ain't exactly all that subtle or unpredictable

I can not dispute of any of that. Besides we all know these kinds of series follow a certain formula i just like imagine now and then a studio actually breaks away from from it for once. lol

As long as Akeno is around i will be happy nonetheless lol

I have no doubt that the first time Issei faces this jerk hes going to get to his ass pummeled.

Have the TV ratings of this series been discussed already? I'm just kind of curious what are the chances of this series getting a green light for a second season.

If the judgement is made purely on direct income (and not promotion of the source), you should wait for the DVD/BD sales. TV ratings and advertisement is next to non-existent for all late-night shows. Plus I think this one is on AT-X.

Malkuth is right. Statistically the number of people who watch late night anime is such a small proportion of the population, that audience numbers don't matter. What matters is how many of those who do watch, buy merchandise and DVDs.

The TV ratings do matter in noitaminA and NTV late-night anime.

It has all the factors to get a season 2 as long as there is enough material in the manga they will probably get a season 2 (or an OVA as we have seen in highschool of the dead). My bet is it will probably get an OVA and after a year or 2 a season 2.

Novel have 11 volumes released, vol 12 soon to be out, vol 13 on september.
Anime part until the end of Asia rescue was only volume 1 novel.
Then 2-3 eps of fillers taken out from volume 8 6 and so.
Now we go into volume 2 which will end HS DxD season 1.

Manga is based on novel, and as far as I remember atm its just finished rescue Asia arc.

Novel has enough material for 50-60 episodes, and considering that its not finished, it could go more. (if 2 novel volumes= 10 eps that is).

So don't worry about canon material, worry about producers wanting to dish out their Yens to produce it.

Wow. That was a lot. I think this series will only go for 12 or maybe 13 episodes?

yeah... it ending at Volume 2 is sufficient enough seeing as Volume 3 is about someone else in the Occult Club, not to mention it just doesn't feel right ending the anime at Volume 3.

According to MyAnimeList, the series will have 12 episodes. An OVA is already announced I think.

No way in hell they would be able to fit 2 volumes in 5-6 eps. Unless they would totally skip vol 2.
And vol2 ending is good for anime end. It can either end as open end good end, or a *see you someday* ending.

Yes, most likely he'll get his ass handed on a platter. However, this will only make Rias feel pity for him, tell that other guy what a jackass he is for hitting issei and blow him off, and then there's another naked hug healing session for Issei
