How much content does the first and season anime season leave out in regards to vol 1-4? i never read the first 4 volumes. Do you think its worth going back and reading them?

Yes go and read them, they really setup allot of things to come.

Volumes 1-4 set up things to come in vol 18+?

Volumes 1-4 set up things to come in vol 18+?

Yes. One is a couple of lines and the other is a one-liner that you wouldn't normally pay attention to.

Both are found in Volume 3; situated in opposite ends of the Volume.

As I said before, Ise's speech to Rias is a much better Finale than V3's ending. And they'd have to cut a lot of stuff for Kiba's development and Irina's + Xenovia's introduction. There would be cuts far worse than this Season's will probably have when it ends.

And as I said it'd be riskier. DxD is the kind of series that could flop really hard, and if it did, they'd leave a bunch of stuff without closure. V2 is better because it has more closure to it, at the same time it leaves room for further events in case the sales flopped.

It wouldnt be then it's a anime end with without closure. I never really understand the logic of making an anime based on a long ongoing series have closure at all. As has been said anyone who really cares can go read the books. It seems fairly defeatist to me to not work on a basis of a successful series and a season two+.

Anyway, it's irrelanvant for series one and two now. Do we think this series is going to have a mid season finale at episode 6? Or will it be more about and overall story with the arc conclusions happening in the process?

I'm not sure, Ep 4 and 5 sinopses seems to be more V7 focused, with 5 being Ise's and Akeno's date IIRC. My hopes is that by episode 6 they at least start the RG against Sona. So the first half of this Season will be mostly set up, so that shit can get serious without any stops in the second half.

So, ep 4 just aired, I was a bit nervous because they seem to have replaced the RG with Sona with the fight in this ep, (A lot of the RG moments were here, Koneko and Akeno asking for Ise to give them courage, Saji talked about his and Sona's dream). Also, Azazel already gave Saji the other Vritra Gears. And it seems the original Midgardsorm was in this as well, but may be only a clone.

But the moment Rias flipped and all the shit araound her started getting rekt I simply stopped caring and now I'm hyped for next ep like there's no tomorrow.

Also, Arthur and Kuroka will appear, as well as Bilingual will be mentioned or used next episode.

The RGs are a big part of this arc in the story, I'm complacent about changes but even I have my limits. They can just make it so the only RGs are agains Diodora and Sairaorg, but it's still a bit meh. And like I said, Rias's reaction made up for it.

Still sure that they'll just move the Rating Game to episode 6 or 7. Otherwise they're going way too fast for the amount of content remaining, and we know they're smart enough to not do that.

I agree i'm a little less complacent then you. But i'll wait and see for myself. Sairoarg is way too soon. Diodora's they have to do but lets see what happens.

Before people go bonkers on how the story is derailed....

Remember the first fight against Loki? Remember what happens there?


Loki + Fenrir fought against the Gremory group + Baraqiel + Rose
Fenrir put a hole on Issei's body.
Vali Team appeared and stopped the fight.


Now, look at the episode right now. :)

GDB
2015-04-25, 11:22

Sure about what? That they won't just erase an important fight, or that it'll be episodes 6/7? If the former, the author liked the storyboard for the season. If the latter, it's a guess.

Seriously, if all you're going to do is just doomsay everything that happens, just stop. No one cares to hear it when you have no reasoning beyond "We're doomed. DOOOOOOMED!"

The episode with subs is out . Well this was a good episode , and that Arthur aparition solved the mistery of vali team and gremory team fighting together agains`t loki . And that shot with ise about that technique , proves that in episode 6 we might see the RG between Sona and Rias .
I am the only one or this fight was the best until now ?

So with the odin / loki fight happening now does this pretty much confirm a issei JD / Asia kiss as the final episode? Also i take it that we wont get to see the Akeno date stuff.

OK, I think it was said a billion times in this thread already, but I have nothing better to do. so:

They are mixing the first half of V7 in the V5 storyline, after next episode it should go back to V6 (There's still a chance of they doing the RG, but I'm not sure about that)
so no, JD will NOT be the finale.

The final fight in V7 with all the Chichigami stuff will be the finale.

Akeno's date is going to be next episode. Or at least she's going to ask Ise to one, I don't know if it'll happen in the same episode, but it's very likely.

Well it's basically done to expand Irina and Rose's presence in the story. If they go with 5 > 6 > 7 the two won't play a role in the first half at all, with minimal role on the second half as well since they only participated on the Loki battles.

Actually thats slightly wrong. Irina plays one of the most important roles of all in volume 6 (she brings the oppai dragon song to the gang). as for Ross she was never meant to play a large role she was meant to be introduced

Chichiryuushintei
2015-04-26, 07:26
I don't think that was their intention as much as a consequence of the changes.

I think the biggest "Pro" of the changes is that Loki actually seems like an important villain now. In the LN he just appeared, took a walk, came back, and BAM! Got his ass kicked in the most random way ever, before disappearing completely from the ORC memories the same way those Hero Faction thugs did.

I've never really got the appeal of nudity from a battle situation.

I really feel like I need to re-read 5-7 so I remember how things are changed, but I'm enjoying it as it goes out right now. Maybe I'll read before re watching on Blu.

Which literally makes Irina the same as irrelevant cause that's the only thing she was actually involved in for that Volume. It was the same for V7, Irina just appeared for the Loki battle only. And that battle didn't even give her much focus like this episode. :heh:

i suppose one could call it a pro but frankly Loki was never really an "important" villian to begin with. As a God he's certainly a big boss. the other problem is the way they've handled it. The first time Loki appears and is teleported away and from the sound of it something similar will happen this time. Thats bad writing IMO. the truth is Diodora as much of a pain as he was is a more "important" villian. Plus Loki originally isnt a part of the Khaos Brigade.

But there's the thing. HE'S A FUCKING EVIL GOD. In the LN he's just disregarded as some 1 time chump who's beaten as fast as he appeared in a completely ramdomic comic-relief way, that's bad writing. Was it hilarious? Yes, I still chuckle just from remembering it, but that was the most anti-climatic fight this series ever had.

And about him being part of Khaos Brigade, it seems he asked for their help, not that he's an actual member, since he's only doing his own thing, and doesn't seem to give a shit about their goals. And, again, in the LN he's just as important as a thug, so changing him isn't harmful at all.

Except for the fact the first time he appears he wrecks shit and the fact that the 2 heavenly dragons had to work together to beat him and Fenrir (btw remember the conversation between the actual midgosomar and the gang was funny.
Daddy's not scary but Wan wan is.

Yea in the end he needed the breast god to save them but before that he was wrecking shit.

GDB
2015-04-26, 09:48
Still a chump when viewed as a literary villain compared to pretty much every other villain in the series. Even Raynare had better "presence".

The only one who might be worse off than Loki is Kokabiel.

I never said he was weak. lol

He still went as fast as he came, noone even remembers him now. He was more irrelevant than a fodder Fallen Angel and some Devil cocky bitch who thinks he's awesome because he rapes nuns. That's bad writing no matter how you look at it. Hilarious yes, but bad nonetheless.

I still hope they put that conversation in somehow. It's probably the most unlikely to be put, but yews, it was funny.

@GDB: At least Kokabiel was curbstomped by VALI and not for comic relief. And his actions made the Three Factions of Christianity come to an agreement faster than they'd otherwise IIRC, so his actions still had significance.

They won't "stretch" it per say. Next episode Loki's going to retreat most likely (The King of HOLY swords must be terrifying to an EVIL God) and then come back at the end of the season for the final fight.

The (plausible) RG against Sona and V6 will happen in-between.

I trust him too, I doubt there will be major changes that ruins the plot completely. But then a little voice in my head says: "What if he's only telling us he's satisfied with it because TNK told him to, or because of some contract clause?"

pretty much

there's always the worry of things being skipped in anime adaptations, but given this show's track record and the author's dedication, it's earned the benefit of the doubt. the people complaining about born don't know how good they have it compared to something like say madan.

Or Tokyo Ghoul. I'm not a fan of the series, but thinking of 70+ 20 page long dialogue-heavy chapters in 1-cour makes my chest hurt.

Worst case I've seen from an adaptation stand-point is Beelzebub. Every single episode before the last was either exactly how the manga was or filler (There wasn't much, so not really a problem) and then half-way through the last episode they just went full-original in a really retarded way.

Well, I think that there are certain things that shouldn't be changed if they don't need to be changed. Like the fight with Rizer for example (there was absolutely no reason to change how it went, but it was changed anyway...and messed up). There are also core aspects of story that should not be changed (like Issei defeating Loki with Mjolnir...or it's replica, whichever is fine).

I understand the need to fit a lot of story in a short amount of time, so Beelzebub interfering, they going to buy time instead of Loki attacking in an ambush and cutting on the amount of people fighting are fine. I could even accept the fact that Issei have little to do with Akeno accepting her powers in anime. But not everything is fine to change.

How did they screw the fight with Rizer up?

Ise won't defeat Loki until the Finale so no need to complain about that.

I won't accept every single change they make, like I said, I may be complacent, but I have limits. What they've done up to now is fine.

How did they screw the fight with Rizer up?Pure cosmetics. The reason why I said they screwed it up is because...there was no reason to change it. Neither time constraints nor esthetics. I won't tell you the details now. I'd need to reread the battle and rewatch the episode. It was a while. But I do remember that I was bothered by it when I did watch it when having the book fresh in memory (after all, I begun reading the light novel only thanks to learning about it from the anime when it appeared).

What they've done up to now is fine.Well, I'm borderline getting bothered. As in, what they have done up till now is still something I could tolerate, provided they will not mess it up too much further.
Different people have different "limits", after all. I'm one of those people that think that if an adaptation can't be at least resembling the original, so that the reader can actually say often what will happen next, making an entirely different anime from the get go is better that messing up the story.

Ise won't defeat Loki until the Finale so no need to complain about that.Actually, that WOULD be something to complain about. Turning one battle into two separate ones...actually, into three, counting the banquet...is too much of a change. Loki should be defeated in next episode. Just add aid from the breast god healing Issei up while giving him power after Vali takes Fenrir away. Then everything would be put "in its place". It's not like Issei isn't "healed" by "breast power" left and right in the book anyway.

Well, too bad because it was already confirmed by the author that's what going to happen.

There were 2 fights against Loki in the LN, the first was split between last episode and this one. The Final one only happens after the Vali Team helps them in the first one.

Have you never listened to an NFL interview? There are so many ways to side step questions without giving a false positive. "I'm focusing on the novels so I didn't get a chance to oversee enough to give an opinion" and things of that nature.

Pure cosmetics. The reason why I said they screwed it up is because...there was no reason to change it.

So it's a change, not a screw up. Don't go all Imperial on us.

We've gotten massively lucky to get this much, and *fingers crossed* there's a good chance we'll get more. I know we're obessive here, but we get to enjoy a great novel and an enjoyable anime.

Plus, have you looked at other forums and/or YouTube? Fans of the genre *love* this show.

by now rating game gremory vs sitri should be skipped as it serves no purpose

Akeno is already using holy thunder
Koneko is using nekomata powers
Tsubaki ability is revealed to rias (which means xenovia will know about it, thus no way is tsubaki winning)
Saji already has all vitria sg and awakened vitra eye

I doubt it'll be skipped though, Issei hasn't use Bilingual yet. And he's on his way to create that next episode. :p Plus Ishibumi confirmed that episode 4 is a mix of V5 & V7 but the events of V5, 6 & 7 will still happen in sequence. Just see this at the first fight with Loki, he did retreat after the Vali Team arrived.

So people will fuss more if they include the RG. They shouldn't fall to something they know about. So that means changes that may not be good have to be made. Our story is already awesome no need for changes. Cuts for time constraints sure if not super crucial to story. Out right changes that can be very bad. As usual though gotta wait and see the full season to see what they have done. We got to support it if we want more.

Here to bring some bad news or good news depending on how people want to view it. The title of episode 7-9.

7. Night before the battle (対戦前夜です)
8. I'll rescue Asia (アーシア、救います)
9 Dragon of Dragon (ドラゴン・オブ・ドラゴン)
Hence there'll be no Sitri-Gremory Rating Game or rather it seems like there'll be no RG at all. Unless if they animate it in Episode 6.

P.s. The accuracy of this is unconfirmed, therefore if wrong. Don't complain.

Based off the names would it be correct to assume: End of 8 he thinks she is dead and starts to get pissed. (If lucky we can hear Ddraig say run.) Start of 9 we see him flip his lid and proceed to open a can of whoop ass.

Well, I did estimate episodes 6 and/or 7 for the rating game, so it can still fit. Though those titles seem odd, since it leaves 3 episodes just for the final Loki fight? Seems excessive.

2015-04-28, 09:20
So going by the titles alone, episode 5 is the end of their vacation (which implies there won't be a Rating Game, but I have no idea how they'll fit in Bilingual), episode 6 is the start of the second semester (read: Irina's transfer, the prelude stuff with Diodora), 7 is that one night between Ise and Rias before the final Loki fight (which also implies the Oppai Dragon stuff has to come between 6 and 7), 8 is the start of the Diodora Rating Game, 9 is the climax and JD, and perhaps what they'll do is use 10 as the set-up episode for reuniting with Kuroka, the effects JD had on him, Vali learning Norse magic and being called the Ketsuryuukou etc. And 11-12 will be the Loki fight.

Considering they said they would add stuff regarding Rias's and Ise's relationship it's possible. Weird as fuck. But possible.

Will they do that without showing Ise's lessons with Venelana and the butler though? Even I would rage about that. ._.'

This cannot be . Because it was an unwritten rule that dxd must end with a big beautiful fight . So i hope episode 12 does not turn into volume 8 extra

So it's a change, not a screw up. Don't go all Imperial on us.1) For there to be a screw up there needs to be a change. Not every change is a screw up, but every screw up is a change. Also try to tell a girl whose make up was ruined by a sudden rain that cosmetic changes are not a big deal. See where that takes you. Your argument is simply empty.
2) I didn't go "all imperial" on anyone. I said pretty clearly that I think that there are certain things that shouldn't be changed if they don't need to be changed. In other words...that I don't like changing stuff just for the sake of making it different. Chichiryuushintei and now you are the ones that blew these personal opinions out of proportion.

It was mentioned in 04 that "...if we (Sona and Rias) ever have a Game." so it's possible that they'll insert the Rias-Sona Rating Game into early-s4. Just have her match with Seekvaira be now (off-screen of course) with Diodora's. But that'd take a lot of re-writing assistance from Ishibumi since they know one another's powers now.

I think that was just an easter egg for the LN readers. Although apparently Ishibumi wasn't very fond of Reverse and regretted writing it into the story, so this may have been his choice.

Wonder how they will switch it up for taking out members anyway. Also Saiji is suppose to be praised so they still have to work that out. Seeing how Loki had a lil issue getting the line off they would be dumb to think one of them could easily take it off. Saiji even said it's not easy to take off.

It's possible that Thor was occupied at the time and could not come to help himself. Considering that Thor is in the top 10 strongest there would not be much of a fight if he did join.

I think it'd be something more like Thor's reaction when the red dude lifts his hammer like nothing. It'd be even worse since Ise did it with the help of the God(dess?) of Breasts
And then, he'd cry together with Ddraig and go to the psychiatrist Albion went. :D

Ishibumi posted this in his blog:


もう5月なこの頃

気づいたら、もう5月ですね。
早いし、なんだか、暖かくなってきました。

原作の情報は、前回のブログの更新でお話しした通りなので、特にこれといって新情報は……。
以前お話したかもしれませんが、BD・DVDの特典小説が、今回本編に少々関連した作りっていうのがありま す。
企画がここにきてボツになるってことがない限り、原作本編では現状やれないことをやろうと思っ てます。
イッセーとヒロイン達の将来……というよりも、次の世代が気になる方はぜひとも要チェックしていただきたい かなと。
多分、その手の妄想が好きな方にはたまらない逸品になるかなと。
今月辺りに特典小説の特報打ちます。
NARUTOの映画に感化されたのかも……。


さて、アニメの情報です。
先日発売されたメガミマガジン6月号には、読者全員サービスでハイスクールD×DBorNのドラマCDの応 募券が付きます。
このドラマCDは、原作短編集DX1巻に収録されている「あぶだくしょんERO」です。
このほかに、アニメ三期関連のBD・DVD特典ドラマCDや雑誌のドラマCD、OADなどは、できるだけ有 り余っている原作短編から拾おうかというコンセプトがあります。
なので、これらの関連物は、原作の短編を再現してます。
映像化に向いてそうなのは、OAD、しゃべりくり倒したほうが面白そうなのはドラマCDという具合でしょう か。
アニメの役者さんがはっちゃける原作短編のドラマCDなどが気になる方はチェックしてみてくだ さい。

アニメのほうですが。
原作からの主な変更点が若手悪魔連合によるロキ迎撃戦です。
イッセーたちは原作のこの時点より強化されてます。
イッセーは翼が生える状態になっており、小猫も火車を設定先行で使用しております。
匙も鎧化の前兆を見せていて、イリナも天使のパワーが底上げされてます。
あと、ミョルニルもレプリカではなく、本物を赤龍帝が使えるように改良してます。
今回、大きな再構築案となったのがこの部分でした。
以前にもお話した通り、ひとつの章(二章)が完結ということもあり、一期二期で消化されていない伏線(朱乃 やアースガルズなど)を三期で出来うる限りやろうというコンセプトと、特に三期で登場の新たなヒロインの活 躍は必要であり、ロスヴァイセや天使となったイリナも活躍させねばなりません。
映像に出す以上、ロスヴァイセを活躍させぬまま二章完結にはできませんでした。
そのためのロキ戦でありました。

原作ロキ戦の集団戦闘メンバーだと敵味方含めてひとつの戦場で展開するにはあまりにメンツが多すぎるため、 アニメなりの解釈でメンバーを選抜しており、その上で描いていただいております。
……やっぱり、あの人数に鎧化二名、敵味方に混在する怪獣軍団までもが活躍する戦場は劇場公開でもないとな かなかに厳しいです。
原作で怪獣多すぎましたね。

次の5話は朱乃の話をやりますので、デートやあのシーンもきちんとあります。
そして、原作6巻のお話は一期二期同様、ほぼ原作通りにやります。
あのシーンが原作以上に格好良く迫力あるものにしていただいておりますのでぜひご期待ください 。
それと、ヴァーリの三期の活躍は後半でえらいことになります。
乳神に関しましても、形は変わりますが、設定の補完は最終回まで見ていただければわかるかなと 思います。

そのようなわけで今日はここまで。


The Google Translation:


Around this time of another May

If you notice, It is already May.
And to fast, somehow, it has been getting warmer.

The original of information, because as has been talk in the last blog update, new information, especially say this ....
You may have previously talk, but benefits novels of BD · DVD is, there are the Tteyuu make associated little to this story.
As long as there is no thing to me planning is dead issue come here, in the original story we wanted to try to do that no Yare status quo.
Rather than Issey and heroines of the future ..., who next generation is anxious by all means check it out and I want kana to.
Perhaps, to become kana gem dying for those who like the delusion of their hands.
We will beat dispatch Benefits novel this month Atari.
...... Maybe it has been inspired by the NARUTO movie.


Well, it is the information of the animation.
The other day was released Megami Magazine June issue, it will have the application ticket drama CD of high school D × DBorN readers all services.
This drama CD is being recorded to the original short stories DX1 Volume "abduction ERO".
In addition to this, anime three quarters related BD · DVD bonus drama CD and magazine drama CD, such as OAD, there is a concept to pick up emergence from the original short story that is as much as possible a whole lot.
So, these related products will have to reproduce the original short.
Nanoha so suitable for imaging, OAD, and whether a talk chestnut and defeated better is interesting would be the degree of drama CD.
Such as the animation of the actors of the original short story that kicking is crawling drama CD is please try to check those who are worried.

How can more of anime.
The main changes from the original is the Loki interception game by young devil Union.
Issey us has been enhanced from this point of the original.
Issey is ready to wing grows, also has been used in the configuration preceding the fire vehicles small cat.
Spoon even though the show aura of Yoroi-ka, Irina also angel of power has been bottom-up.
After, Mjolnir is also not a replica, I have to improve the real thing as use red Ryutei.
This time, became a major restructuring plan it was this part.
As previously was talk also, there is also one of the chapter (two chapters) is that complete, and the concept of trying to do as far as possible foreshadowing that have not been digested with one stage second phase (such as Shu乃 and Asgard) in a three-stage , in particular activities of a new heroine appeared in a three-stage is necessary, also Irina became a Rosuvu~aise and angel must take into is active.
More than just put out on the video, it was not possible in two chapters complete remains which is not allowed to active the Rosuvu~aise.
It was there in Loki game for that.

Since the original To expand in one of the battlefield is it collective battle members of Loki game and including friend or foe too Apartments is large, has been selected Members in the interpretation of Nari animation, we have drawn on it.
...... After all, Yoroi-ka two people to that number of people, the battlefield also is active until the monster corps mixed in friend or foe is a quite tough and not a theatrical release.
It was a monster too many in the original.

Because the next five episodes will do the story of Shu乃, you also neatly dating and that scene.
And, talk of the original six volumes one stage second phase similar, you'll do almost the original street.
Please expect all means because that scene is I am to what is nicely powerful than the original.
At the same, we of Valle of three quarters will be taken to helluva in the second half.
Even doing Breast God, but the form will change, completion of the setting, I would wonder if seen if you can look to the last times.

In such a not so far today.

Shu乃 in Google Translate is Akeno. Also, you have great taste in best girl. :heh:

So the next 5 episodes will be Akeno's story, volume 6 will get a near-perfect adaptation, JD will feel even more powerful than the original, and I think Vali's gonna play a big role in the second half of BorN (which we know).

I think everyone will be blown far away and the building will be destroyed even further upon the JD releasing, since we don't need Kiba's narration in the anime like in the LN.

That'd be insanely sick for us, but the anime-only folks would probably want a hair more.

"You..."

*Fade to black*

"made the wrong choice."

*Red eyes flash open, cutting through the darkness*

"GWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAH!!!!!"

*Episode ends*


Edit:

Ohhhh to add to the fun:

*Immediate next episode after that cliffhanger*

*We open on the zoomed out view above the shrine where the fight takes place, sky in background, ideally night*

*The silence is cut by the scream from the last episode, red energy blowing the roof off of the shrine*

*Next series of shots is not Issei, but the astonished faces of his companions, looking at him. who we cannot yet see*

*Final shot turns to the terrified face of Shalba*

"What... the..."

*Issei, still screaming in pain, in undergoing JD transformation*

*Badass transformation to end all badass transformation occurs*

*Issei's head snaps up, eyes locking on Shalba. A low growl is heard*

Anndddddd Intro XD

In a perfect world, we'd get a special opening with far more melancholy undertones.

To be fair, this is far and away the most badass moment in the series. Like, the second IMO is when he rolfstomps Sairaorg's Queen due to being so pissed, and that's miles behind this scene.

Also, I forgot to add the chant to my little scene. Guddayum this scene will be epic.

Edit: And I forgot we get Longinus Smasher here. Volume 6 is flooding back to me.

I'm thinking it'll follow the novel breaks. So the previous episode ends with Asia being engulfed in the rays of light, leaving anime only views wondering what happened (or getting the revelation from the preview). From there, the next episode starts with everyone's reactions, and if the anime only viewers weren't spoiled (from those here (DON'T SPOIL IT LIKE YOU GUYS TRY TO SPOIL EVERYTHING ELSE) or from the preview), the loss will hit them just as hard as everyone else because they'd go in thinking it wasn't anything important, only to find out she "died".

From there, the "You made the wrong decision" will likely be the half way mark of the episode, so we'll hear it twice (once before the cut card, and once after it). The curbstomp then ensues.

We don't know, someone (Don't remember if here or in the wikia) said they could only show certain key parts of a TV broadcast version of it. Sounds interesting.

About Saji, he was able to keep a hold on Loki, the Evil Trickster God. That deserves far more respect than being able to get beaten up by Ise.

My thoughts for this episode:

Fenrir was nerfed in the same LN volume and the same way, so him being weaker here doesn't really bother me.

Akeno's development was kinda rushed, but I'll wait for subs to actually form an opinion about that.

They kept the girls spying on the date xD That was one of my favorite things from Volume 7, so I'm really happy about that.

Bilingual, the ultimate gentlemanly technique makes it's first appearence! And it was glorious!

The only thing that actually bothered me was how Ise was able to use Mjolnir without a problem. Maybe the subs will clear it up, but it's really weird.

Overall 8.5/10 scriptwise. May change depended on how the subs clear it up.

Next episode preview shows Bitchdora, so they will start the Volume 6 part, HYPE!!

P.S.: I'll post a more detailed review in the wikia after the subs are out, if anyone is interested. :P

KnightShade
2015-05-02, 12:42
loved the date with akeno. wished they included barakiel thinking issei eats breast from the ln, but they snuck in bilingual without sona knowing about it, which means the rating game can happen still. the girls were not subtle about spying on isseis date lol. saji getting so hype when sona thanks him lol. koneko saying nya = 10/10 episode. and kuroka cares about her little shirone lol

8.5/10, would have been a 9 due to pacing issues and ln omissions

So who wants to place bets that the curse Loki placed on Ise will somehow substitute for Fenrir's early-capture (well, being nerfed so badly it's not like he would've done much anyway)?

Yep, Chichigami breaking Ise of that curse in the final fight is probably how things are going to go. And that's why they need an entire episode more to finish v7.

Give it time, man. You know how spoiled we are that we've gotten this many high-quality translations from one guy? I'm sure he's close to finishing 18, which will be plenty for me for a bit. I love this series, but we've got other cool stuff to check out too.

Actually, his last update was 3/15, which was Life 3. And no, I can't imagine someone would be side-translating it. It's actually a fairly large project, and again, we're very lucky to get this much of it.

Having just finished watching the first ep of the BorN dub, I'd like to let everyone know about some stuff:

-Issei's voice actor has changed to Josh Grelle, making the show sound like pervy Freezing, even though he's more talented than Scott was

-Akeno's voice actor has changed to Kelly Angel, who is apparently completely Google-proof, and makes Akeno sound really just generic

-The episode contains an Over 9000 joke

-The scene where Issei calls Rias Buchou outside of the new house and Rias reflects on it has now been changed to include Issei calling Rias "Big Red." Dead serious there.

-I have a sneaking suspicion that Ddraig has also been recast, as his voice sounds off

-Azazel sounds as boss as ever

Because it upset me so much that I spit Diet Coke all over my floor while watching the ep.

He says it in a silly voice, so maybe there's hope it's a joke, but it's literally taking the "For you president, I would even give my life" line from the Funi subs and inserting "Big Red."

JD is stated to release the seals in the Heavely Dragons powers giving access to a power greater than a Maou or a God to the possessor. So Complete Jugernaut Drive = Heavenly Dragon's strenght. And that's far beyond Vali's Empireo Overdrive, ISe's CCQ can't even compare at the moment.

That's what I used to think too. But I've come to assume that "power" equals "techniques". Providing you with power equal to a God could be attributed to the power output of Longinus Smasher. If JD truly released power equal to that of the Heavenly Dragons, why is it emphasized that EJOD can reach the Gods when it's a known fact that Heavenly Dragon strength > most Gods?

This is my interpretation:
The key words are "Complete" and "Incomplete".

Like CCQ, EJOD is incomplete and unstable, so it can't possibly match a complete JD. But once Ise and Vali complete their respective modes, it could probably go even further than the complete JD in terms of strenght.

TL;DR

Incomplete JD < Incomplete CCQ < Incomplete EJOD < Complete JD

Complete CCQ = Complete EJOD = or > Complete JD

A sacrifice has to be made. They are gearing up for the fourth season; if probable/possible. That's why Volume 6 will be animated as close to the source as possible as that Volume connects to Volume 9 because of the involvement of the Hero Factions.

Though them more likely not animating the Sitri game is a big uggh as that is an essential element with the Young Devils Rating Game theme. Still hoping they can establish the plot around that.

It just feels so rushed and wrong. I know they are trying to make other characters feel significant in the story, but it only makes things feel so cramped and out of place. Why dont they save the hype for say Irina, Ross and Sairaorg for the upcoming season? Or perhaps don't hype them at all.

I'm really interested in where they'll go with the whole Loki curse thing it's one of the reasons i'm quite happy with this season because it keeps you on your toes you have a general idea of what's coming next but you're never really prepared for what they'll throw into the mix to stir it all up.

Those episode titles are absolutely infuriating. If those titles are any indication GDB that pretty much part doesnt mean anything because of the fact they're taking out what even now is one of the Top 3 moments in the entire show

So, I think it'd be for the best Shalba doesn't appear at all. Or at least doesn't fight the ORC, and just is shown to oversee the operation from afar. since the only thing he was good for was to be curbstomped by JD.

And I will be skeptical until someone give me a link to where I can find these summaries.

The really interesting bit is the last one. An episode focused in the Hero Faction? That sounds really cool.

when u consider season 4 and volume 9 the hero faction should be introduced (if it was me i'd introduce them on their way to Kyoto to setup the next season along with mentioning the Kyoto trip in that last one).

Quite easily. JD isnt happening during vol 6 looking at the titles in fact he's gonna unleash it against Loki. So the same stuff can still work.

Whether its good or not is crucial. This season has already screwed it up. Bilingual was handled horribly. and from all indications they've switched JD as well.

"Bilingual was handled horribly" How can you say something was handled horribly when it didn't even happen? Ise didn't even finished the creation part of it. Heck he doesn't even know how it works exactly or how he'll name it.

About the "Hero" episode: I never said it's something great and that it'll be awesome either way. I'm just saying it's an interesting thing to do and that it could be really cool. Sheesh. We have to wait 7 weeks before knowing it was a good idea or not, calm down.

it's not what i and chichi worry the most, it's the chance that TNK might change JD. So instead of the past possessors that makes him go JD it will be the Loki's curse that does it.

I won't say I don't like something until I watch it. I'm saying if they did this in "X" way, then it would suck. But until the episode is out, nothing proves they are actually doing it in "X", "Y", or "Z" way.

Except for one scene of Issei comforting Akeno and showing he actually really cares for the girls and in turn shows he has more depth and love for the girls then 99% of the harems mc's which truly set him apart from everyone else.

I'm still holding out hope that somehow, some way, they'll re-add a similar scene in S4. It can't be done with the Rias scene so they'd have to find another way to do it. Or at the very least, create a scene that gives the same impactful meaning of how he feels about his girls.

Anyway, I was actually looking forward to the Hero episode but ah well. The best speculation right now seems to be that JD will remain intact and he'll either re-enter it under Loki's control or Loki will give him some sort of a power-up to face JD Vali.

And I still want Le Fay or Cao Cao to appear for S4 foreshadowing.

I have a feeling something will be left out of season 3 from volume 5 6 & 7.

There is still 7 episodes left but we still have 4 key moments left to happen, and i have a feeling something will left out or done incorrectly or something.

1. Sona rating game - This alone can take 2 or 3 episodes to complete.

2. Old satan faction (volume 6) - We have sirzech vs creuserey asmodeus and odin (helped the ORC) vs some of the old satan faction devils. These won't take long to animate but it can't really be skipped over.

3. Diodora rating game/Juggernaut Drive - This whole situation can take 2 episodes at least because Rias' peerage fights diodora's peerage before issei owns him, not to mention the dimension lost device with asia. Then the situation with juggernaut drive will take a chunk of an episode as well.

4. Loki final fight - this looks like it'll be the finale of the season and i can see this going for 3 episodes (2 episodes is possible but it'll rushed IMO).

Not to mention the oppai dragon song and great red appearing briefly.

Sona's RG isn't likely to happen anymore, 80% of the development of that fight happened in EP 4.
Going by the leaked episode titles, Volume 6 will take 4 episodes (EP 9 is called Dragon of Dragon) The other 3 are most likely going to focus on Loki's curse.

If the rating game is skipped then i see everything else easily fitting, but that sucks because i prefer the rating game over that BS way of giving development in episode 4. It felt like it was coincidental and more like rushed in my opinion.

The Sitri game got cut for 3 reasons:

1. Ishibumi didn't like it because of Reverse and highly regrets writing it into the story.
2. Obvious time constraints because 3 volumes this season.
3. There's really no need for it anymore, since we've gotten what we needed out of it in the first Loki fight here (sort of).

Not entirely sure how they're going to do the Oppai Dragon Song (if at all) since the term was developed during the RG with Sitri. Also since everything after the Diodara incident will pretty much be anime-original.

Anyways minor gripes here and there, but having faith in Ishibumi and the Anime Team in rearranging the order of the story to flow better and setup possible 4th or 5th season.

The second PV already has the Oppai Dragon Song done magnificently, so it's already confirmed to happen. And like I said, just have Azazel say he wanted to do it foh da lulz. It's nothing compared to his crazy antics in the Short Stories.

It's likely just speculation that grew into misinformation. It's not hard to believe, as reverse was a pretty lame inclusion, and opens up all sorts of "time-turner" plot holes.

Chichiryuushintei

2015-05-08, 23:01

To me it's just the same with Sephiroth Graal, Ishibumi added those but make sure there are major weaknesses otherwise everyone can just focus on Reverse in battle or depend on Valerie to revive them.

Chichiryuushintei
2015-05-08, 23:04
I think Reverse only served for the Khaos Brigade plan in Volume 6. Aside from that, Ishibumi didn't want to use it in anything because it's so broken.

Not really important, it's basically Ishibumi is stating Episode 6 will mark the beginning of Volume 6 and similar to before, parts of Volume 7 will be scattered throughout the plot so pay attention to those changes. So Volume 6 will be like the first 5 episodes where Volume 7 plot will be placed among the plot.

2015-05-09, 09:26
It wasn't much actually, Rossweisse was left behind and comforted by Akeno, Azazel told Ise and the others about the Oppai Dragon stuff (To which extent I don't know, gotta wait for the subs) Ddraig cried, and props for his VA by the way, it was hilarious. I think that's it from V7. Nothing much actually.

Like I thought, the Tournament is happening, but the first opponent is Diodora, not Sona.

Next episode there's the cosplay stuff and Sairaorg appears.

Overall, great episode, 9/10, will change depending on Azazel's explanation for the Oppai Dragon.

this episode made me regret skipping ln 6(only read the spoilers), mainly because for me asia was diabetes-level adorable and sweet here. diodora succeeds in making me hate him, and he hasnt even done anything yet lol. draig crying was hilarious, props to the VA. kiryuu just can't stop molesting asia lol. irina cock blocking xeno and asia's grope session with issei was too much,her reaction was funny.

but on a different note, just like last episode with akeno, asia didn't get her hug after issei's nightmare. i wasn't buying it when someone mentioned this at reddit, but does it feel like asia and akenos moments in born have been downplayed compared to rias? let's hope they don't change asia's confession kiss like they did with akeno's kiss(who am i kidding, it's gonna get changed, i said the same thing about the rating game and look what happened)
