This thread is for the experienced High School DxD viewer (i.e. those of you who are familiar with potentially all the light novels / manga), its purpose is to allow free discussion of theories and speculation over the High School DxD anime series, it therefore will contain unmarked spoilers. If you are a light novel virgin of High School DxD, then do not read this thread unless you want to be spoiled (use the Speculation & Theories thread).

Since posters are expected to be familiar with the light novel / manga, there is no real need for spoiler tags, but feel free to include them if you so wish.

Adding a Spoiler tag:
spoiler.gif Just highlight your spoiler and click the button found on the "Quick Reply" and "Reply to Thread" forms.
Make sure that you include a title that clearly identifies the specific source of the spoiler!

Finally, please remain on-topic and do not use this thread if it's just discussion about the current or previous anime episodes. Also remember that this isn't a light novel / manga discussion thread, if you do want to discuss the light novel then please use the existing thread.

Personally I'd say Issei already has his harem, whether he knows it or not is another question, the trauma he suffered is just about cured. He's been responding to the girls, knows that they love him and actively seeking to make them happy. Someone that is chasing girls for his harem wouldn't kiss, date or bath with them. The days of the oblivious Issei ended with that last "ara" in volume 9 or 10 when Rias walked out on him.

That's something you should discuss in the "Speculation & Theories" thread since its not related to the anime. Its this link here.

This thread is a place you talk about the anime where you could use LN as a reference.

Well I think they can squeeze The Oppai of Tennis, but if they want to go full out crazy 300 Ise would also go great.

Don't want to be out of topic but, what is with all the new High School DXD threads popping up?

Good question, since they are adapting volume 3 and 4, the only SS (AFAIK) that take place during that period of time are Memory of Oppai, The Oppai of Tennis, Hell Teacher Azazel, and 300 Ise. If I have to guess, most likely Memory of Oppai and The Oppai of Tennis (although they wil have to change a few things). But a part of me is pulling for Hell Teacher Azazel.:heh:

Check the Afterward of Volume 8 and you'll get a good guess on which SS will be adapted.

o.o thanks noman for the translation n.n
so azi dahaka is much strog than grendel because azi use thousand of spells,
Vali and his team say it is the most formidable enemy that have faced so that means that isei need control his dragon powers and have a new armor more powerfull than true queen

Just saw the raws of the first episode. It followed the formula of the Light Novel a bit, but deviated on some account though in a way I really think that is for the better. Good to note that the anime producers cut down on Ise's nosebleeds, hopefully Ishibumi does the same in the Light Novel in the future.

[mod edit: moved from episode thread]

It's good. There are differences compared to the novel, but the adaptation is good nonetheless. Promising first episode, next week should be good too.

It feels rushed, but I think this season needs to cover a lot more more then last season.

season 1 only did vol1-2 with parts of the side story volume

season 2 is showing a lot more volumes and honestly, I don't know how much they can fit chronologically. The author likes to fill each volume with a lot of side stories (after arcs are done).

They are doing at least 3 and 4, they might have to do vol5 to round out the anime.

but... the 2nd arc is 3-6....and that's way too much even if you exclude sidestories.

sky black swordman
2013-07-09, 05:48
^ I believe it was already stated somewhere that season 2 will only be adapting volumes 3 and 4. And if you think about if they tired to adapt volume 5, the anime would end with a cliffhanger.

I didn't watch the PVs so I got a question. Was Michael featured in the PV?

Do not believe so, unless new PVs have come out. Outside of Gasper (ie: main focus of volume 4), no volume 4 only characters were shown in the PVs. I'm not counting Azazel since he's in both the OP and they've been putting scenes of him in where possible.

relentlessflame
2013-07-16, 02:14
Keep in mind that PVs are generally going to contain things either from the OP or from the first few episodes. At the point when they made them, they won't have worked on much of the later episodes yet. OPs themselves sometimes hint at characters not shown yet, but they can always modify them half-way through to show extra people. So all that to say: whether a character has or hasn't appeared in a PV shouldn't really be taken to mean anything about the future.

2013-07-16, 04:44
Well considering we have pictures of gasper that means he's gonna be revealed especially with the forbidden room revelation from episode 2. I suspect this arc will last 3-4 more episodes and then they'll start vol 4. besides it would be more interesting to end the season with issei's battle with Vali which will likely be very epic.

Personally, I'm leaning more toward the option, of this arc being resolved in 4 more episodes, unless ... like in the first season they are planing to incorporate some of the scenes from the side stories, in which case the events of volume 3 are going to be resolved a little quicker.

I also agree that the fight against Vali is a good way to end this season, since if they animate it properly, it's definitely going to surpass the ending fight of season 1.

Having said that, I'm kind of wondering if they are going to include the naked apron scene from the 3rd volume in the "TV" edition of the anime, since considering the fact that, they cut the Akeno - Rias argument during Ise's "dragon power sucking" ritual, moving it to the "BD" version, I think that the "naked apron" scene, might also suffer a similar fate...

I heard that the argument of Rias and Akeno will not be included in the airing of the anime rather it will be when the DVD and Blue Rays when they come out. Its kind of a underhanded move to get more profit though I am not complaining since it will get more awareness of the series.

More than anything I want Leviathan to be animated. The pool scene in volume 4 is going to be a head scratcher. It seem so much exposure in that part, I want it to be animated but not sure if it can be animated.

well yea that's true but as for the whole ending season thing I don't think they'll end it on vali's fight it takes away from them showing gasper plus Vol 3 only needs 3 more episodes at the most.
1st episode the fight with the girls later on they team up and it ends with Irina being dumped at issei and gangs feet.
The next episode is rias discovering their plan everybody begins to fight and it ends with the baddies revealing themselves.
Final episode of this arc is when they start fighting and probably 10 minutes in or so vali reveals himself he wins the fight against kokabeil it all ends and issei and saji get the spanking. The vali issei fight will be something and the pool scene will be animated somewhat

A 100% transition of novel to anime form is impossible. Some things just have to be left on the cutting room floor for simple reasons of time constraint in the episode. All in all we have a mostly faithful showing and a noticeable lack of censorship which is a thing not a lot of other shows can say. We're actually pretty lucky for this.

ImperialFlameGod8190
2013-07-19, 04:38
The fact is your right 100% is impossible but they need to keep the core stuff available so you can sell DVD's the special editions aside which make things a total bitch. We'll deal with it when it comes but its still 3 episodes away from when that may happen.

I'm confused by what you're talking about here. The Vali fight is in volume 4, same as Gasper. And we already know they're going to do volumes 3 and 4.

It is already looking better than season 1 thus far in my opinion. The pervertness of Ise has been tone down a bit yet he is still beyond the border for a normal person.

If people watch it for the fan service, they will not get disappointed soon and once it hit volume 4 which has high amount of fan service.

Well we got to see about that. The first episodes were very light hearted, it is just now beginning to get serious.

It is best to ask Nom@n for the current sale info of the BD, it is seem to be hinted anything above 8 thousand in sale is a good number for a sequel.

Edit: Those 2 new illustrations of Rias need to be saved when bigger versions are available. The first one can be found here http://www.fujimishobo.co.jp/sp/fantasia2017/goods.php and the second one is of Rias in a swimsuit. In the live broadcast u can see it on the far left on the left fantasia banner.

Edit 2: Oh yes Ishibumi posted a link to Rias artwork which also needs saving when there's a larger version. Here it is: https://item.rakuten.co.jp/amiami/goods-00187265/ and omg CHIBI RIASS WAS SO CUTE!

The real mystery, 1 or 2 cours? Obviously since its titled Hero, it should be adapting the enterity of the Hero Faction arc, which can only be done in 2 cours, tho they could also be planning an split cour, 1rst cour covering vol 9 n 10 in one season, 2nd cour from 11 n 12 in another season. The PV did showed both vol 9 and 10 so those are a given

And those new designs, mmm... not sure if gusta, will just wait and keep and open mind and hope for the best

Yeah, I don't mind about the animation, but I hope they somehow bear resemblance to TNK. Not it's animation, but it's vibrancy or energy if you may call it.

Some people are gonna still complain about it. Like Oregairu S1 and S2.

Have to agree about the preview of Issei vs Sairaorg, they really outdid themselves on that part. And also the character designs, yup, have to agree to that too and how they're closer to Miyama's drawing.

Need to wait for the HD version then. When can we usually expect it?

"High School D × D HERO" means that "HERO" will become "HERO" by combining "H" and "ERO" of Issee. There is also meaning to fight heroism [hero faction]". This is why Ishibumi called it Hero. He just said this on his twitter. It also fits with the name of the third arc "The Heroic Oppai Dragon".

Yup, that fight was in Volume 9 where Sirzechs offer Issei a fight with Sairaorg.

Edit : It was supposed to be the basement of Gremory Castle though but who cares.

Taken from Volume 9, Life 1
In the basement of the Gremory castle there was a vast training hall, easily
large enough to house the entire Kuou Academy stadium.

We of the Gremory's and Sairaorg-san went over there together. As for
Millicas-sama, Grayfia took him some place else to wait.

@Sacredeus Is it because of Rail Wars? Was it that bad compared to it's material source?

I'm actually more worried about the ecchi scenes than the fighting scenes. The fighting animation looks really great but the ecchi parts, can't say I like it yet. Need moarrr to be judge.

I don't know source material, but from I remember Rails Wars is know from "LN authors are only in the way" statement and was changed into fanservice show that it should not to be (at least from what I heard). So both same studio and director of that is really bad sign.

Edit:
Studio alone wouldn't be so bad, they created Rokka anime and that adapted 1 LN Vol into 12ep (good) series.

Like i said Season 1 & 2, both season are pretty faithful but still underwent changes to fit the anime itself. Otherwise Irina wouldn't have appeared for the remainder of Season 2, Akeno, Sona and Tsubaki wouldn't be participating in fighting off KB.

Well Rias should be the only one who appears temporarily.

You think they couldn't just change the setting from field trip to ORC trip isn't that hard. For starters if they go with a second year trip, then the anime would be forced to give some focus to the Sitri girls which has been severely lacking in the anime. I don't see the point of doing that now.

"I am very touched to meet the greatly anticipated Chichiryutei-san!"

"...Is that so. Yes, great."

"One more thing. First Gen-sama seems to be looking for Vali-sama and Bikou."

"We may run into them soon. To completely shake the First Gen off our backs will be very hard... But hidden in the depths of the Sacred Gear, Hyoudou Issei has begun contact with the past possessors."

"Vali-sama?"

"Persuading others by words is not my style. --I will take the greater challenge of dominating the past possessors, it is more interesting that way. Cao Cao, if you want to defeat us you'd better do it while it's still possible. -- Before I and Ise completely surpass your powers."

Things that were missing:

-Vali team, Baraqiel & Tannin not being included in the Loki battle.
- The Gremory Vs Sitri Rating Game


Thighs that were altered:

-The whole Loki mind control arc was dumb. Duplicating Boosted Gear takes a lot of effort as we see in Volume 16.
-Akeno & Issei's moment before the battle with Loki was replaced with with the motel scene.
- Skipping most of Volume 5's story gave Koneko little character development.

2017-10-21, 17:49
The 3 episode filler in a 12 episode season was beyond bad. That's the real point that makes born unsalvageable. Could have done stuff with boob god and the rating game then. I can see why they try to connect loki to the main plot more in early born. From a show point of view it makes sense instead of halting the plot for his solo gig. But the fight was handle better in the novel and character intro actions.

Lucidrago
2017-10-21, 23:36
It was more like Diodora was helping Shalba. Well I would say it was consensual. Diodora wanted Asia. Shalba wanted Rias' life because of her being Sirzechs' sister. So their interests were mutually connected. Although Diodora is related to Ajuka, the current Beelzebub but whatever. Shalba most likely just used him to get what he wanted at the moment and would have disposed of Diodora afterwards after he outlived his usefulness.

C&D I doubt that Lady Phenex, Misla Bael, Zeus, Poseidon, and Lirenkus are even going to show up. Or else we would have gotten Lord Phenex in the first season and we would have gotten Shemhazai(I know he appeared in the anime but he was a background character who nobody knew who he was). And even Hades, Indra, Diehauser, and Rudiger I'm very skeptical about showing up. Just because they were in those parts in the novels doesn't mean it's going to be the same for the anime. Especially for those like them who really don't serve any major role in that certain part. I know it's a new studio but still it's very doubtful they're going to show everyone who appeared in those volumes.

I could be. But the same can be said for most of the characters you listed. Shemhazai showed up three times in the first 7 volumes. The first time in Volume 4 when he was talking with Azazel. The second time when he was in the conference room with the Azazel, the Satans, and the Seraphs talking about how Kuroka and Bikou had basically just easily infiltrated the Underworld. And the third time when Saji was teleported to the Loki battle and Shemhazai started talking to Issei. He had way more of a role than Lady Phenex, Misla Bael, Lirenkus, Zeus, Poseidon, and some others. Again do you think they're going to include every character that appeared in Volumes 9 and 10?

And yeah, Born was a failure. And those last three episodes were horrible.

Which volume does Irina becomes a legit main character? Is it 7 or 9? I hate the fact that Irina is put under the support character on myanimelist for DxD Hero. For Born it was still understandable.

Irina joins Kuoh and the ORC in volume 6

Yeah besides not being in the Rating Game/ambush in Volume 6 and not being in the Rating Game in Volume 10 due to being a reincarnated angel, she is part of the main cast and has basically participated in every battle with the Gremory group.

If Elmenhilde was introduced in the third arc, so if V16 was placed there instead, she surely would have been made a protagonist somehow since Ishibumi likes her character quite a bit.

Passione art-style of Rias and Issei.

https://twitter.com/hdd_anime/status/954549291569135616

Yeah.... Its definitely gonna take time to get used to the new designs, they arent bad thats for sure, tho I damit i preffered how they looked previously, I just hope for a good adaptation, if we can get that then the art style will be the least of our problems

Is the old casts coming back for Irina, Xenovia and others? Since we haven't gotten any news about it. Especially for Xenovia since Taneda Risa just finished recovers from surgery.

@CrimsonDarkness406 Their face expressions looks more lifeful than before. Thanks for the images. Will we be getting more?

Crimson406

The Rias and Issei are new published ones.

Just forget BorN existed, that's what Ishibumi wants to you to do.

Raptor178
2018-03-09, 16:16
That's one thing I am worried about though. What's gonna happen with the continuity? In season 3, The Fun Gremory Family didn't get adapted, and we saw Illegal Move Triaina. It's not like the key had collected any breast power.
Also, now that Ise has "cured" himself of Raynare's hold on him, what's gonna happen in the adaptation of volume 10? The memory loss could negate that, too...

The last four episodes of BorN really screwed with the continuity.

Rant over.

Bennia Lover
2018-03-09, 16:48
The Fun Gremory Family is in V8 and continues the plot from V7-V9 so of course it didn't get animated. It's supposed to be animated this season.

2018-03-09, 16:54
The Fun Gremory Family is in V8 and continues the plot from V7-V9 so of course it didn't get animated. It's supposed to be animated this season.

But that's exactly what I meant. Will it even get animated? One of its biggest purposes has been fulfilled by season 3: Ise's Evil Pieces getting adjusted by Ajuka, allowing him to unlock Triaina (which the anime displayed).

Lucidrago
2018-03-09, 18:19
Yeah TNK really screwed it up and if Passione's going to follow the light novels and act as if the cancer known as Born didn't happen, it's going to create a lot of continuity issues and cause a lot of confusion from the anime-only watchers.

No it isn't. Ishibumi said on Twitter it's just vol 9 and 10 being animated.

Unless They do an episode 0 It might confused Anime only watchers on how Issei unlocks Triaina.

Bennia Lover
2018-03-09, 18:38
@seafoam Of course Ishibumi would never say a short story is being animated. He never did for the previous seasons yet short stories from V8 were animated so you can't say it isn't and it supposed to be animated because it's important to Issei and Rias' relationship and I believe Passione will not skip it.

B214
2018-03-09, 19:48
Ajuka already adjusted Ise's EP before he enter the Dimensional Gap, so i suppose it solves the question of how Ise unlocks the Triana in anime.

Seafoam
2018-03-09, 19:54
If anything they teased Triana too much. And as far as I remember the engagement didn't really become a big point in the LNs, just a thing that was supposed to be in Ise's face all along. Vol 10 sort of works with or without it either way.

Bennia Lover
2018-03-09, 19:56
Issei unlocks Triana by poking Rias' breasts soo that doesn't matter really.

thefreakmike
2018-03-27, 23:17
On one hand, it was stated in the LN that Vali looked younger than Issei, with the previous season making him look older.

On the other hand, it does looks the animators are taking way to much inspiration from last 5 volumes art-wise.

Azazel looks good tho, like almost the same lol. Him, Rose, Irina and Koneko are probably my favorites thus far

Seafoam
2018-03-27, 23:22
Well naturally speaking when you try to follow the source's art, you go off how it looks currently as opposed to how it looked 7 years ago. They've also corrected Vali's and Xenovia's eye colors to what they are in the light novel illustrations.

I dunno about that, Ishibumi's been real anal about saying that this season is gonna be the most faithful (since he's writing the script), so they might just mentioned to be having a game.
