High School DxD - Weekly Anime Episode-to-Novel Comparison Thread [Spoilers Aplenty]

As the title of this thread suggest, the purpose here is to allow discussion which compares the content between an anime episode as it aired and how it is laid out in the source material the anime was adapted from. All spoilers are allowed as long as it is relevant to the discussion at hand. It will be helpful if the posters clearly indicate the episode number before engaging into a detailed comparison to the source material. Obviously you are required to watch the episode prior to posting here. Thread is open to everyone, but since the novel readers are expected to participate, the anime-only viewers are advised to use discretion before venturing into this thread.

For the High School DxD Novel Readers: Please do your darndest best to stay on topic when engaging into these comparison. Whenever you see one of your fellow novel reader is spewing spoiler for no apparent reason, feel free to tell him/her to stop. Report such post so a moderator can delete the off-topic post.

Have fun!

Episode 1: Im sad with the fact that Rias didnt barge in on the scene where Akeno was sucking Ise's finger. It was a nice scene in the LN.

let's not also forget that it also cuts Akeno's conservation with Issei of wanting to make a love affair, that part was one of my favorite one in the novel

I'm still holding out hope that they will do both of these in episode two.

From what I remember it has been recently mentioned somewhere on the Highschool DxD sub forum or some other place (sorry, can't find the source, at the moment) that Akeno's dragon sucking scene is going to be longer and Rias argument with her, is also going to be shown, in the BD version of Episode 1.

From what I remember the ultimate source of this information, has been Miyama Zero's twitter page, so if someone knows Japanese, they can verify if this information is correct.

EDIT: I found the source. In Japanese it's written like this:

今のシーンも続きもBDで
Using Google, it translates into something similar to this statement:

Continued scene of today in BD

They apparently add 3 more minutes for BD episodes, according to the news mentioned earlier. So, lets looking forward to the BD.

Btw, the order a bit different, huh? Compared to the novel.

^ I sort of expect something like that to happen, after taking into consideration what they did in season 1.

It usually needs to be in chronological order. Or it'll end up as a confusing mess like K.

I think they did cut Akeno's affection towards Issei in S1 right? Her having them now seems bit confusing to viewers although its a harem show.

In season1 ?
No they didn't, in volume 1 and 2, Akeno barely interacted with Ise. Her thought and personal feelings toward him at that particular time was that he was a cute junior and that he was ," like a very idiotic little brother."

Yeah, Rias and Akeno started liking Ise after his fight with Raiser which happened in the ending part of S1. That sucking scene was supposed to be the start of the 2 onee-san's fight over Ise.

It does seem confusing, but if you are a avid reader of the series then you already have become accustom to the unusual. AKeno affection does start in volume 3, and the anime does follow the Light Novel almost to the letter during that scene with Akeno. Though I was expecting it to be more borderline pornography by the details of the Light Novel.

I have read until Volume 5-6 but that was like months ago so I waited for the anime to draw comparison, and I guess she shows real interest in Volume 3+.

No wonder you don't remember it, since it's an anime made content.

The "novel" scene with Azazel occurs in Life. 0, part 2 of volume 4, and the anime hasn't reached that moment yet.

I am not sure to why they put Azazel this early in the story. Are they trying to expand volume 3? I'll admit that volume 3 does seem short if they were to animate it.

Probably putting him in now because it's kind of just tossed out there that he's one of Issei's regular clients (if not his best client), yet the first time we meet him as viewers is when he outs himself as the Viceroy of the Fallen Angels.

He is Ise's best customer Azazel pays Ise with Gold and Jewels, forgot which part in the Novel where it is mentioned, but I know it was mentioned.

@Reaper

Well, the only thing that came to my mind, on why Azazel was introduced so early, is because of the fact, that ... during the final battle of volume 3, Vali mentioned that he is fulfilling Azazel's "orders".

Maybe, they want to make that particular scene, a little easier to understand, to the anime viewer, by introducing us to Azazel, before the final fight of the volume is going to occur.
