Issei going Juggernaut Drive :heh:
Last most importantly: Rossweisse's debut!!! :heh:

Since there's already a no-spoiler thread in the anime forum, I'm going to assume this one will stay here as a sort of "Spoilered expectations" thread. As such, I'm looking forward to:

Issei obtaining Balance Breaker
Dere Koneko
Akeno snapping
Kiba being the "ace", and I guess really all aspects of this rating game in general
Issei going berserk
Oppai Dragon theme song
Asia's kiss

Saji going man mode vs Issei.
"You've made the wrong choice..."

Man that is going to be awesome.

With how the dates worked with the animes animated by TnK this past year, I think season 3 will air on October-November.


Highschool DxD : Jul 7 - Sep 22, 2013
Kenzen Robo Daimdaler : Apr 5 - Jun 21, 2014
STnBD : July 14, 2014 - ...


The difference between 1 & 2 and 2 & 3 is that STnBD was confirmed to be animated next by TnK even before Daimdaler ended. So, I think that maybe is the reason for the difference in air dates.

And since DxD is confirmed to be animated next even before STnBD started airing, maybe it will follow the trend that STnBD started.

Watcha think?

G147
2014-06-16, 19:34
Unfortunately no. Since Season 3 just got green-litted, it means they just started production. :T_T:

jopjopjop
2014-06-16, 19:37
^But the same can be said on Blade Dance.

Or is there a difference between being green-lit and announcing the new season?

G147
2014-06-16, 19:41
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Green-light.

So green-lit means they were just given permission to start production, so Season 3's production hasn't started yet.

GDB
2014-06-16, 19:42
Usually (though not always), being greenlit means they just got the go-ahead, whereas announcing a new season means it's been worked on for a while and they're just ready to announce it.

If I had to guess, I'd say January 2015 is most likely.

zack sager
2014-06-16, 20:21
i also think january is most like but can hope for sooner either way the highscool dxd franchise is doing great 3 anime season been awhile since ive seen a long running anime season since the big guns other then magi also have 18 LN so great.
the thing im most looking forward to is ise learning balance breaker and seeing all the more dragons introduce especially big man tanin

I was also thinking July 2015 might be possible, but I figured since we hadn't heard anything about any OVAs between now and... any time in the near future, it'd likely shorten the time a bit.

More than likely January 2015. Remember, Season One came out Winter 2012, Season Two in Summer 2013, would only make sense to do the same with this third season and have the six season buffer-zone.

@Dragonmuseveni If there is season 5 and ended in the last Vol11, well you can imagine the uproar

Biohazardous
2014-06-17, 06:08
They probally would end it with his death and basically people need to read if they havent to find out what happened or be in pain waiting. I was shocked when I read that. I recently read the 16 volumes plus the part of 17 translated. When that happened at the end of the novel I was like nooooo. It was nice being able to start the next one right away. It would have sucked waiting for the next novel to come out THEN wait on translating. The worse part was we still had to wait awhile in the next novel to see what was up. At least he came in brining the pawnage. I cant wait til we can see him use that type of power again. Im sure Ise will bring it out in epic fashion.

The death of Issei was a huge shock to me, you see every shounen protag has their plot armor, and considering Issei I think he would pull out "My love for oppai so great that it erases the hatred of Samael!", even when Ddraig told Issei to keep up, he would never die, he would always stand up, etc, Issei still died in the end of the paragraph. I did think he was unconscious or something but the dragon gate scene broke my belief.

My love for reading this is because after season the first 2 seasons and loving it I imagine this as I read. It makes me laugh that much more. Imagining him flipping out. The looks on his face or the girls or even Irina's wings flicker. That one really gets me going imagining her wings flicker and the first time her having a scared/shocked looked on her face. I look forward to the OVAs too those short stories are awsome and will/would make great OVAs

I wonder if they will change Ravel's character design to the right one.

GDB
2014-06-17, 09:33
I prefer they don't, not immediately anyway. Just have her breasts slowly grow to the proper size of the course of a few seasons so people don't jump up screaming that her design was changed.

Those few seasons would be so far away though since it has not been seen yet are we are about to be at volume 18 in the novels and only up to 4 in anime.

It's pretty much, what, a year and a half between seasons? 3 months to air, 5 months to finish releasing discs (since usually the first comes out while it airs), and then a short wait before an announcement of the next season (2 or so months), then another 6 before it airs.

Seems like a good system.

Chris38
2014-06-17, 12:57
Well, personally I'm just glad that we are getting a confirmation that season 3 is going to be released.

Although, I hope that they won't cut a lot of events from volume 5 and 6 just to fit it into a 12 episode format (still having a small degree of hope that season 3 will actually have 24 episodes) - since I think those volumes contain a lot of events ... that at least I would like to see animated...

Issei first used that attack on Sirzechs in Volume 8 Extra Life. So, no. We wouldn't see that attack.

only Issei can claim her at this point so put your pants back on and Drago they'd never do a one volume season they know they gotta do at least 2 volumes to appease the fans.

Carnage
2014-06-17, 15:07
They have to use at least 2 vol. Altough I dont understand producers only use 2 vol ! If you take year and a half to make a season at least make more epsoide. Infinite stratos producers use 4 vol just for one season. Not the mention they make the anime parallel as the novels. They end second season when there is no novel left to animate. (vol7) on the other hand dxd has almost 18 novel that means a lot of material. I dont know what keeping them. Only possible explanation is dxd is not popular enough in japan.

if it wasn't popular enough 3rd season would not have been okay'd so that's not it.

all we know at this point is that it's been greenlit it still hasn't been confirmed if it's gonna be 12 or 24 episodes so we can still hope.

It's certainly longer than the other volumes they've animated, but not by THAT much that they'll need an entire season for it.

With 12 episodes to work with, it's safe to assume they can easily fit volume 5 into 7 episodes and volume 6 into 5 episodes.

There is also side strories from other vols tho.

That's what OVAs are for. 7 Episodes for volume 5 and 5 episodes for volume 6 sounds just about right for season 3.

GDB
2014-06-17, 15:59
They weren't used in season 2, so there's no saying they'd be used in season 3. There's always OVAs for those, especially since they're, you know, side stories. And outside of the one where Issei gets his Pawns fiddled with and possibly the Satan Ranger one (if they aren't the same one), none of them really have any impact on the main story or characters at all.

IIRC, there's no SS that can be included in this coming season when the timeline is concerned unlike Season 1 where they were able to include 2. (not that sure about the timeline since I can't check the novels since BT is down and too lazy to scour my HDD for my downloaded ones. :heh:)

Issei's Training with Tannin will be hilarious.

The Rating Game will be epic. I just can't imagine how they can screw up that awesomeness.

I want the JD chant to be done well, in the novels it sound all ominous and creepy, It felt more scary than some horror movies I watched, it has to be 10x scarier animated.

And I want to see how it looks like, with the claws, the mouth *nomnomnom*, and The Longinus Smasher.

Asia's kiss will be nice too.

And of course the GOD of badass modafockars who gives no sh*ts about anything besides swimming in nothingness: GUREITO REDO-SAMA!!!

Odin will surely appear but Ross is a bit .. meh.

Her only appearance in Volume 6 is when Odin first appeared in the meeting room and she's with him.

~But with that being said, I can't think of a scene where she can appear if she won't be included in the season episodes except if they include an anime-original scene just like Ophis'.

Didn't she appear with Odin when they went to greet Ise after the Rating Game? Btw, the meeting was in volume 5. :heh:

GDB

I could see Rossweisse appearing, but not getting any voice. That way, she appears to appease fans, but they don't have to lock in on a VA this long before her debut actually matters.

2014-06-18, 19:44

that's what i said!

Issei and Odin meet after the Gremory/Sitri game and since Rossweisse was with Odin at the time as his bodyguard we WILL see her and i doubt they wouldn't have her voiced since they've been following the novels pretty faithfully which means she will have dialogue in this meeting.

i very much doubt they'd voice minor characters and NOT voice Rossweisse at this point.
i know where you're coming from GDB but the scene progresses because of her dialogue since she tells Odin they have a meeting and need to leave so either they animate the scene and have her voiced or they cut the whole scene out and piss off a bunch of fans..

Gary29
2014-06-18, 19:57
^Exactly. Not to mention Rossweisse's significance is only one season away, so they wouldn't cut her out. We're definitely going to see her in season 3 with a VA. Her and Kuroka's VAs are something I'm really looking forward to seeing in S3.

GDB
2014-06-18, 21:02
For some reason I was thinking she didn't join up until volume 10, but after checking (yay, BT is up again now) it would just be season 4. As such, yeah I'd expect her to be voiced.

That's not to say that they couldn't just have Odin remember the meeting himself, and have her just bow or something and walk out if they wanted. Minor edits can happen that don't involve outright cutting a scene.

G147
2014-06-18, 21:41
Don't be so sure on the Rossweisse issue yet. Lord Gremory who was supposed to appear in Season 1 never appeared. Shemhaza and Odin who was scheduled to appear in Season 2 also never appeared, and all of them carry the same situation, short appearance, so we can't rule out that Rossweisse won't appear at all. The same could be said to Ajuka, Falbium, Kuisha, Cao Cao and Georg.

Hmm. Seems like the scenes that everyone wants to see are practically the same ... but I think you guys forgot one of the best scenes this coming season

“There’s no problem with skinship between servants. Like this—”
She guided my hand to her thiiiiiighs! Nuha! Akeno-san’s leg had the best softness and affected my brain! A nosebleed spurted out!
And then my hand was—led to under her skirt! T-That’s… forbidden territory…I gulped. Because! Because, if I keep going like this, my hand will reach into her skirt…it will reach Akeno-san’s panties! Was she fine with that!? Was Akeno-san okay with me going all the way to her panties!?
The instant my hand went beneath Akeno-san’s skirt—.

B-Buchou! This is bad! Akeno-san was on my lap while having a lewd look on her face! My hand was on the verge of venturing inside her skirt!
I tried to free my hand, but Akeno-san brought my hand to her mouth.
Nuchu.
My middle finger made a watery sound, and went inside Akeno-san’s mouth! Uhaa! The sensation of the inside of a girl’s mouth made my brain melt! It was warm and slippery, and furthermore, my finger was wrapped around by her tongue! Moreover, she sucked it! It seemed like various things were being sucked up!
When Akeno-san pulled my finger out from her mouth, a trail of saliva could be erotically seen connecting to my finger!
“Stealing from the master gets me fired up.”
Akeno-san smiled at Buchou with a defiant gaze! S-Scary! Erotic, but scary!

Akeno truly is the best. :love:

It the same thing (or reason) if you ask me, they will do it to cut down the cost, there's no reason to go to an extend to pay for a VA to appear just for one short scene, especially when the status of the series after Season 3 is unknown.

True, but if you think about it, the anime has a tendency to cut things out for the sake of time, so they could have easily changed how that went, such as him just being summoned or whatever.

How? Vali was intending to use Juggernaut Drive back then. Do you expect that

they use a Magic circle to summon Vali? Vali would just ignore them.
forcefully teleport Vali? He'll kill the person who did that.

Plus if they edit that part, there's also the concern on the story being changed in a different direction. So the anime had no choice around Bikou's appearance. Plus if we base on the BD extra scene on Ophis (the hint about her appearance was released prior by Ishibumi himself), we can actually conclude that TNK was already intending on creating a Season 3, so having Bikou appear was of short concern to them.

Yea Akeno is my fav she is awesome though Xenovia has the most balls. If Ise was alone with each girl and we measure how long it took to go all the way after him flat out asking Xenovia would be the fastest. The others would be acting too shy and stuff at first Xenovia would just strip and tackle him.

Everyones Predictions are wrong -_-

Season 1 used Volume 1 and 2 of the light novels.
Season 2 used Volume 3 and 4 of the light novels.

Thus
Season 3 will be Volume 5 and 6 of the light novels.
Which means it's going to be when they head to the underworld, train for sitri match, Fight sitri and also have going on the field trip part.
Which means we will see Balance break, A legendary dragon, Rias Mom, but no Loki or odin.

Never in the conversations above mentioned Loki. Only Odin.
And you know what? Odin appeared on both Volumes 5 and 6


Volume 5 - meeting with the higher ups. Also visited Issei's room after the match.
Volume 6 - saved the Gremory group and peeped under Akeno's skirt.

You know what all the freaking seasons are going to be epic. Each one should keep being epic possibly even more than the last. A lot of great stuff happens the only thing I am scared of is a big gap between when Ise "dies" and them showing what happens.

The train scene will be one of the best scenes in this coming season and the good part is it will happen on the first episode. :heh:

This is what started making me enjoy this series so much. I had already seen the first 2 seasons and read the volumes. I knew how to picture their reactions and such so seeing how awesome things were as I read the more I kept reading the more I loved the series and the more I wanted to see more animation. With the way they have gone with the volume to season ratio we have about 8 seasons worth total out now. This is taking out the SS ones to use as OVAs. The story and action gets better would should draw more people to the series if they animate it right. This does not even count merchandise. Im hoping they speed the process up of the seasons or if they keep it with this kind of gap make them 2 cour instead of 1. We have plenty of material to handle it.

Actually, if they changed it to nipple-sucking instead of poking, it would modify future power-ups among other things. So no, it's going to remain poking.

Always86
2014-07-11, 13:46
Well the reason I thought it was a possibility is that I'm sure in the previous season Ise mentioned sucking Rias's nipples being his dream/goal. As I understand it that didn't happen in the LN due to the publisher intervening. I really like the 'poking'. However it would seem odd to me to announce the desire for nipple sucking and then turn to the poking when you know on advance it's not going to happen.

I still find it a bit odd that 11 or 12 volumes later Ise has never mentioned it again. Plus I don't think sucking would change Ise power ups, since he has never sucked I don't think it would represent a change in progression.

DragoMuseveni

I get the distinct impression that if ise start sucking nipples the show will be more like Seikon No Qwaser so its better for poking than sucking .

Imagine if, due to volume 8 being all short stories, it would lead to season 4 being novel's 7 and 9, and season 5 beginning with volume 10 and ending with volume 11. If people haven't read the LN's and see that ending for season 5...... Think they'd literally go crazy......

2014-08-16, 05:38
Usually maybe, but Volume 10 & 11 are actually quite short in terms of plot content, in Volume 10, there's only a Rating Game against Sairaorg, can be finished up in about 3-4 episodes. Volume 11 first half was basically nothing, just some preparation for the Mid-class promotion. The second half isn't really that long either can be finished up in 4 episodes as well. Volume 12 is slightly action packed but can actually be fitted in 5 episodes, so 13 episodes (1 cour) for Volume 10-12 is actually possible.

They can not end with volume 11 unless they announced before hand the next season and had plans for it to start within the next one or 2 seasons. (based on tv season)

Honestly, for volumes 10-12 to be animated as you say, it would have to be extremely rushed. But I'm all for them ending season 5 with volume 11 and announcing a season 6 immediately after (like at the very end of the episode) or combining 10-12 into a 2cour to end arc 3.

It may sound rush but it won't. strictly speaking, Volume 10 & 11 are actually shorter in plot content than Volume 3 & 4. Volume 3 had the introduction of Xenovia and Irina, Kiba's past, the alliance, Kokabiel's attack, and Xeno joining ORC. Volume 4 has Gasper, Michael, Serafall appearing, Khaos Brigade, Katerea, Vali etc.
Volume 10's main plot is on the Rating Game with Sairaorg, and a subplot on Issei and Rias while Volume 11's first half was very slow paced just some preparation for mid-class promotion and some Koneko issues, it may seem long when reading but when you think about animating it, it's actually way shorter than it seem. So in fact Volume 10-12 can really be fitted in 13/14 episodes.

The way I want it would be like this.

Volume 5 and 6 as the third season.
Volume 7 as a movie. (The fight with Loki is too epic for just half a season!!)
Volume 9 and 10 as the fourth season.
Volume 11 and 12 as the fifth season (Seriously, ending the season with the cliffhanger of volume 11 would induce a lot of suicides, especially with the time that takes between seasons.)
Volume 14, 15 and 16 as the sixth seson. (Story wise, volume 15 only have little bits. Is mostly short stories.)
And so on. . . . .

I've considered the idea of volume 7 being a movie, since it doesn't fit in with the events of the other volumes, and I think it would be an epic idea. A movie that actually intertwines with all the anime seasons in every single way! And volume 8's engagement ceremony as an OVA between the movie and volumes 9-10.

@Imperial Why do you think DxD won't get past season 3? This is where things really start to pick up, after all. If anything, sales should only get higher from here on out (since everything from here on out only gets better and better).

because of the fact you simply dont see many shows get beyond 3 seasons most only get 2. ironically if there's a show that can do it its DxD considering the only others recently who did it was Shakugan no Shana and Zero no Tsukaima both of which are far weaker then DxD so it can happen but i dont know how likely it is. The only ones that go beyond this point are continous series which you never see

saw2097
2014-08-18, 13:27
Honestly I doubted it would even get a season 3, from the what I have seen with Harem anime, the shows really go no farther then a Second season except for a rare few.

If there is a season 3 however, then a season 4 isn't out of the question.

If they weren't confident in that another season would generate profit it would've never happened it's that simple.

since you mentioned it yourself Imperial if 2 atrocious shows like that can get to season 3 surely DxD can get as many seasons as it wants.

As long as the numbers are good the chances of seeing more volumes animated is good so i'm not really worried.

I think something really big that DxD has going for it is the fact that it's literally the only harem series I know of which has a plot as fantastic as this. Combined with its ever-increasing massive popularity (the group who created the first season's ED still does live performances of it :heh:) and the fact it is by far TNK's most successful series, the chances of multiple new seasons from here on out are really high.

I do agree that if there is a time to do it now would be the time for it 5 6 7 8 and 9 can be accomplished in 24 episodes. 7 is maybe 4 8 would be each short story and 9 is 4 max. 5 is a good 5-7 episodes depending on how you want to play it. 6 can be done in 5 so it would work but the real key is trying to somehow get 10 11 and 12 together which would be great but somehow i feel like they'll go the TWGOK route and skip 7 8 and 9 and go straight to 10 (which honestly isnt a bad thing since those volumes are mostly forgettable.)

yep the first episode of Naruto was in October 2002 First One Piece anime episode October 20th 1999. the OP manga first started in 1997 Detective Conan January 1996. When the One piece manga premiered based on that date some of us on these forums likely werent even born (be honest if some of you were) Detective Conan's first volume is June 18th, 1994 i guarantee most of us on these forums werent even born (I was 3 years old) These series are ancient.

The best definition of a "recent continuous anime" is Fairy Tail which is started the manga 8 years ago so continuous is impossible nowadays.

Koneko claiming Issei's lap as her own.

Juggernaut drive and Diodora/Shalba getting destroyed.

I REALLY want to see Akeno's ordeal, Fenrir, the big ass Midgardsorm, Gremory team teaming up with Vali team, Vritra promotion, and even Loki. People may complain about how ishibumi depicts Loki's character for not being a master manipulator (then again whether or not he is a manipulator in his myth is still debatable among the scholars) but i somehow like about how ishibumi depicts him.

Well, in vol 7 he was saved by Chichigami, haven't heard any MC out there gets a power up by Chichigami so regardless the trope i think it's quite innovative :D. Anyway it's not like when he got a power up then he just knocked down the opponent, Issei was helped by Saji, Akeno, and Barakiel so that he could have a chance to hit Loki without their help i doubt Issei could land a hit although he got a one time power up by Chichigami. In vol 9, Issei barely managed to maintain his Triana and he also was helped by someone else (Sun Wokong), It was actually a draw fight.

Thats not my point. You're right its an original DEM but it still is one. I mean DxD is a perfect example of this problem. The MC loses the fights he should win and he wins the fights he has no business winning for a reason that makes very little sense at the time. Chichigami was clever but its kinda like hmmm.. huh. Volume 9 is worse in this. he's getting owned his power thats been going around kyoto comes out of nowhere and saves him just in time by summoning rias (that was clever but its one of those are you serious things)

I don't know why people are complaining about it now. Since he got power up from boobs right from the start. :eyespin:

Thats not my point. You're right its an original DEM but it still is one. I mean DxD is a perfect example of this problem. The MC loses the fights he should win and he wins the fights he has no business winning for a reason that makes very little sense at the time. Chichigami was clever but its kinda like hmmm.. huh. Volume 9 is worse in this. he's getting owned his power thats been going around kyoto comes out of nowhere and saves him just in time by summoning rias (that was clever but its one of those are you serious things)

Huh?? Issei lost from Sitri's team for a reason, is to show that sometime having a big raw power is nothing in the battlefield. He only delivered the killing blow to Loki, it's not necessarily 100% Issei's deed, like i said he defeated Loki through teamwork not just Chichigami's power. So it's not Issei's victory alone more like The Vali team, Gremory team, and Saji's victory and that's what matters.
Out of nowhere??? So we should just ignore Issei's effort persuading the past possessors from vol 7 and Ajuka tweaking issei's EP in vol 8 ??? If those things had not happened then by all means you could call Issei's Triana a real sudden power-up and i would have not argued with you like this and anyway did issei win against Cao-Cao in vol 9?? I don't think so.

@GrrDraxin
You can call something an asspull if the author never explains the reasons and the details, both the incident in Kyoto and The Great Red helping Issei were provided with a reason, while not clear cut but at least there are still reasons and some details.

The sitri battle was a point that i agree with but lets face it up until the chichigami EVERYONE was getting owned. In the beginning of volume 9 issei opens a box and the power seems to disappear and go away so we knew he had the power but the fact that the power comes out of nowhere and just so happens to appear as he's getting demolished and summons Rias is pretty dumb. I mean to a point its an asspull but its all about literal definition or not but its a tough debate by the way i dont think this is the place for this particular discussion since this should be about volumes 5 and 6 alright. move this to the powerups section and we can continue

I'm with imperial flame god. It was total dues ex machina and low point in the series for me. It would have been far better to have sirzechs show up and save the day reinforcing how badass he is. The summoning of rias was also lame. It would have been far better to power up off breasts that were close at hand like Asia's. Which is a shame cause I like the Kyoto arc except for the end. But it's nowhere as lame as chichigami magically showing up and saving he day.

2014-09-22, 18:05
I agree more with Royal on this one. Chichigami and Great Red's appearances are both due to Ise's power of attraction (and let's face it, Chichigami can be considered a breast-related power-up). Triana was gifted to Ise by Elsha and Belzard after his efforts in convincing the past possessors/Ajuka's EP modification, with Azazel finding the jewel of his possibilities earlier and Rias' nipple acting as the switch (because it wouldn't be the same if someone else became the Switch Princess).

Edit: Ah, I was a minute too late~.

It is not simple like that. For example Strike the Blood, hataraku maou-sama and accel world are quite good LNs which has good sales. However there are no news for their animes. (They are even good animes too.) HS DXD anime adaptation is pretty succesful production. For me this is the main reason to Why they make season 3.

Direwolf18

Its not just the novels, but the anime needs to sell well. If the novel is great and the anime bombs, the novels will keep on going but the anime will end after a season.

The anime adaptations of LN's you listed as examples all sold very well. And by " sold very well," I mean the BD and DVD sales were either good or fantastic. 2. Despite selling well the reason that a second season of Strike the Blood has not been announced is due to lack of source material. Without more source material they (the studio) cannot produce another season of the anime adaptation (especially if its another 2-cours season). 3. You need remember that the studios that produce anime adaptations of LN's you listed may have other projects they have already lined up to work on. And some of the projects they are working on or have worked on may be more financially successful than the ones you listed. IIRC, the studio that produce the anime adaptation Accel World also produce Love Live.

Yeah this is what I was going to say. STB is a 24 eps show, so they have to wait for more material than Dxd, plus the show despite what feels like a long time, only wrapped up earlier this year, in March 2014. It always seems to feel longer but it hasn't been that long. And Silver Link is working on some other stuff.

Accel World and Maouh also feel like works that will get sequels eventually, but they haven't gotten around to announcing them yet.

I also do think that Dxd has a legitimate shot at being fairly long running, ie 4,5,6 plus seasons. It just has something about it that is the perfect mix, and its not like 4 plus seasons is unprecedented.

2014-12-06, 06:10
^ Yeah, I think so as well ... that it's because the events that occur in volume 5 - volume 6 are the main cause why Ise starts being recognized as the Oppai Dragon.

Anyway, after watching the preview a few times - I'm kind of worried about some portrayal of the 'new' characters in the anime.

First of all, there is Tannin - was it ever mentioned in the LN that he is a Dragon with red scales, since that's how he was portrayed in the anime....

Second of all ... there is Rossweisse, who ... at least to me, looks a bit younger, compared to how she looked in the LN illustrations.

Also, since they are showing her in her Valkyrie form - there is a strong chance that they are going to make some original scenes related to her in the anime, since ... after all, from what I remember she has only had a minor role in the events that occurred in volume 5 and 6.

At least Sairaorg's looks to be quite similar to his LN counterpart ... although - from the looks of it, his hair color has been changed in the anime... since, it's definitely not 'black'... :heh:

He was a rough yet good-looking guy with short black hair. He had an energetic appearance, and had a very good physique with plenty of muscles. He looked like a pro-wrestler. Rather, was he a devil from a martial artist family? His eyes were strangely purple.
they got his hair right

It was fifteen meters tall! A monster! It’s a monster! A mouth that split hugely! Brutal-looking fangs that had all grown out from its mouth! Thick arms and thick legs! Two wings spread out on its sides!

…I knew what this was. I had seen it several times and there was also one lodged inside me.

“—A dragon!”

“That’s right, Ise. This is a dragon.” They dont have much on Tannin other then this

Why on earth would an Issei vs Sairog fight be there then... I think we all expected Volumes 5-6 for this season, it would wrap up the Birth of the Breast Dragon Emperor arc nicely. This the kind of change that makes me very very nervous. I would totally have expected to see that scene in Season 4.

At least Rose looks amazing.

^ Yeah, I agree that it will most likely cover only those two volumes.

Especially, considering the fact that volume 6 is the end of the second LN arc and

... ending this season with Ise going Juggernaut Drive is ... in my opinion, a pretty good way to make the viewer's more interested in what is going to happen in the next season...

Gary29
2014-12-06, 12:11
I love the redesign of the Harem King website, the PV and the new visual. The heavy atmosphere is perfect for what's to come. And Ise looks a lot more badass, which is what we'll be getting from season 3 onwards, so that's very good. It'll most likely be 1-cour and I have absolutely no problems with that as long as the pacing is done correctly. Seriously though, April 4th? Just how much work did they put into season 3 before it was officially announced?!

Now, dissecting the trailer;

I'm not quite sure what that large red dragon is meant to represent. I really don't think it's Tannin, but it also doesn't quite look like Juggernaut Drive... Keep in mind regarding the Sairaorg-Ise fight scene that their sparring match took place in the underground training area of the Gremory territory; if you pay close attention to the background in the PV, that's not the same area. Ise's also not wearing his Balance Breaker armor. It's most likely just to hype the new season or an anime-original spar match. Rose looks amazing, and in regards to what Chris mentioned earlier, it's not necessarily that she looks younger, it's that she looks happy. As Odin's bodyguard she was never happy lol.

I'm really amazed with how much thought they put into the title though. Aside from the Birth of Oppai Dragon ref, there's one other major reference that only LN readers would get. Taken from MAL:

According to the official website, "bo~n" is the sound of bouncing boobs. It also serves as a double entendre for "B or N". As to what that means, it will be revealed during the broadcast.

B or N. Butts or Nipples, this is fucking genius. :D:heh:

Direwolf18
2014-12-06, 12:19
If its 2 cour, and I really hope it is that would be TOTALLY fine with me. It could also explain why it seems to have been in development so long.

Also I'm not getting to hung up on the BorN thing... I have seen enough crazy Engrish over the years, I just go... meh. So long as the content is there and solid, that is all I need to be a happy soul.

ImperialFlameGod8190

While i dont disagree that a 1 cour wouldnt be bad ending it with

I hope that's not the case, since 3 volumes in 12 - 15 episodes would mean a lot of the LN events would be cut and that would be pretty bad :(, since in my opinion volume 5 and 6 contain a lot of events that are vital to understand the future LN story developments.

I figured it wouldn't. It looks like it's probably from the scene when the "newbie Kings" meet. Issei probably gets pissed at something Sairaorg says to Rias and throws a punch and then gets told to calm the hell down. Of course, that's if it's from an episode at all and not just part of the OP.

Nope. Issei respected Sairaorg right from the get go. Sairaorg isn't cocky and the cousins' relationship is really great too. Remember, Venelana wanted to take care of Misla and Sairaorg when they were shunned by the House of Bael.

Also I really want to know how they handle vol.8 because it is the first shortstory compilation and the stories in it are all over the timeline.
Edit: Maybe a fun season with only shortstories from vol. 8, vol. 12.5 and vol. 13 after the season with vol. 11/12.

Edit 2: season 3 will be at least vol. 5/6 after that they could make vol.7/9 a season and vol. 10 with the battle of ise vs sairaorg a movie.

Just saw the preview, and the little fight between Ise and Seiraorg could be the small brawl they did before going to Kyoto and Rossweisse is in it too, so maybe they do 4 (5,6,7 and 9) volumes in a double season. Oo

I keep my hopes down but it could be possible.

P.S. Litte sneakpeak of tannin training Ise. ^^

Edit: The coolest thing would be if they really do Kyoto and use the talk between Sairaorg and Seekvaira Agares to announce vol.10 as a movie for 2016.
