Xenovia  Height: 166cm, Weight: 56kg, BWH: 87-58-88
Rossweisse Height: 173cm, Weight:??, BWH: 96-61-89
Irina  Height: 164cm, Weight:??, BWH: 87-59-89
Ise Height: 170cm, Weight: 62kg,
Kiba  Height: 172cm, Weight: 61kg,
Gasper Height: 150cm, Weight: 40kg


Man, Gasper is 15 and he's that short? Its weird that the guys are below average height(Average Japanese height for men is 171cm), but most of the girls are taller than average(Average Japanese height for women is 159cm). Well, the girls arent Japanese so they would be taller than average Japanese girls. But the guys.....damn, they need to grow few inches more.
Well, that's a pretty weird move, but ... there is probably nothing we can do about it.

Thanks for the info n0m@n, and this means that, from the looks of it, we will have another dose of confusion, once the illustrations, for the next volume of the LN are going to be released.

Yeah, what's up with that! XD
Another interesting thing is that, Irina and Rossweisse weights' are unknown.
The Author really need to think before he says and or post this kind of information, it not only conflicts with his own writting, but the illustrator's illustrations.

Actually, Miyama is the one who comes up with the characters heights and weights.
Miyama needs to listen to the description of the characters before drawing. So far he made several mistakes.

-Ravel's breast size(It also affected the anime lol. Thats why she was so flat in the anime)

-Rias wearing white dress in volume 2 (In the story it was written that she was wearing a red dress. Not white.)

-Vali's eye colour in volume 4.

-Ise's height compared to Rias(Storywise he was taller than her in LN. Miyama also made him taller illustration wise, but he made him shorter when he was asked about the height...)

The others sound like straight up mistakes (now I want to see the red dress) but maybe Ise's height was at or before volume 1? Because he seems to hit a growth spurt after the whole "traing from hell" thing with Tanin.

Agreed, I think probably from volume 1 through volume 4.

Only possible in anime, cartoons and manga -- "Buff but only when shirt is off!"

Yup there is quite a noticeable difference between Issie pre and post Tannin training. Even now in the later chapters Issie is significantly taller and more muscular than he was in the beginning of the series. Got no idea why the japanese anime directors (LN author/illustrator) aside have a fetish with short main characters. It's very annoying, hope they remedy that in season 2.

edit; I wonder is Koneko will have a growth spurt in the coming chapters. Personally I always assumed that she stayed short because she was suppressing her nature and now with her learning of senjutsu she'd grow a more mature body like her sister.

I think it trying to make Ise appealing to the audience there in Japan. I am not poking fan at Asian people, but in general, Asians are short in height.

From comparing her height in the illustrations I got her being roughly 4'11 to 5'1 and her measurements are identical to Xenovia albeit reduced to compensate for the height difference.

Yea I fit right in, I'm 5'7, when I lived over there. Personally when I first read the novels I thought Issie was like 5'8 and Rias was 5'5 but when I first saw the anime i was like, ".... damn you japan!!".

Im going to make a bet again! There's going to be a new form for Ise called "Super Saiyajin Sekiryuutei GOD" after he loses against the God of Destruction BirisuShiva in his Super Saiyajin 3Crimson Cardinal Queen.


Putting the joke aside, seeing Ise keep on using True-Queen in every volume is making that form look overused. I wonder how his dragonification is going to come into play for his powerups. I really want to see Ise being able to defeat a Middle-class or Low-tier High-class Devil without his Sacred Gear one day.

I prefer to think the same with Ravel. Perhap at the time she was first introduced she really was flat but picked up a massive growth spurt afterwards to lead to what she is like now. Perhaps it was her interaction with the chichiryuutei that caused the growth spurt. I like to think of it like that and make it a logical progression than think of mistakes.
