It's hard for me to suspend my disbelief or brushed all of them as mere coincidences.

Another thing that left me cringed a lot is the way Rias behaves. I respected her a lot in the first season as a smart, mature, and dignified woman. Yet here, the way she easily strip herself and even sleeps in nothing but her birthday suit with a guy (and i'm sure it's not intended for comedic effect), totally obliterates my respect for her.
It should be noted that "smart, mature and dignified wom[e]n" have sex every day. Their personal relationship, normally with their husband, doesn't preclude any of those aspects. Further, Issei pretty much "won her hand in marriage" at the end of last season. That's kind of what happens when you break up an engagement party, claim her virginity and then proceed to beat the former fiancee in a duel.

As much as otakus "love their waifus", women for the most part are not non-sexual. At all. And considering it's an ecchi show in the first place, there's nothing between the concept of Rias and her showing up naked in Issei's bed. Though Issei is going to take a very long time to "seal the deal".

Did they run out of money for the end credits or this just a patch. I want to see an attempt atleast of the epic pole dance end.

Well, 1st episode did not disappoint, at least according to my opinion. I try being unbiased since I've already read the novels. Most anime adaptations never fit every single little detail from the novel into a half hour-ish episode, I mean there's the fact that this is a single cour show. For that reason, I let small stuff that gets omitted slide. As long as the general story flows the way it should, and it's fun to watch, then it's all good.

The OP and EDs were okay. In comparison, I'd say last season's OP versus this season's new one aren't too different in style. I think I like New's OP better though. New's ED was good too. Of course, nothing could beat that Pole Dance surprise from season one when it first debuted. Still, what that season's ED versus New's ED had in common was that they both had some nice animations. I agree with one of the previous posts - the girls look really graceful in the new ending credits.

The voices still don't disappoint. Another reason why I like DxD's anime - it features a few of my fav. seiyuu Zenovia sounded pretty tomboyish. I always pictured her to have a voice similar to Koneko. Still, I think it'll grow on me. Same with Irina - Mayaa Uchida is doing her voice huh? I knew there was a good reason why she sounded like Frenda from Railgun S. Speaking of Railgun S, Freed, that crazy priest, always reminds me of Accelerator, even though they have nothing in common regarding character. It must be the hair and facial expressions. XD

Looking forward to the rest of the season.

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.

The show, I have been waiting to see is finally here!!

A great start to the series, I was a bit disappointed of the things that were cut, however, that didn't stop me from loving the episode.

Three seconds in and boobs already. Good ol' DxD.

This arc seems promising. I'm happy Kiba is getting some focus. He was very underdeveloped in the first season.

The only thing I know on this episode is "Being Kiba is suffering..."

Seriously, he was upgraded to a second protagonist (and lancer to Issei), and Kiba has lost his cool demeanor?!

It's his own doing, though. It's not like Koneko came and kicked him in the nuts or anything.

Definitely got off to a good start. Right back to the series I remember .

Looks like Kiba will also go ahead and take on some early prominence. His war against holy swords seems to be well underway.

Ahaha, I am both envious of and feel sorry for Issei.

Rias has turned her aggressiveness in her pursuit of Issei Up To Eleven, which I can't really blame her for. And I am envious that he has such a beautiful woman lusting after him.

But yeah at the same time he's apparently too nice to hurt Asia's feelings, and now Akeno is coming on to him as well. Which is kind of hard to deal with I guess.

That being said, I would give up a LOT to have those kinds of hardships any day XD.

^He wants to be a harem king, so I don't think he's all that bothered by this. His dream is slowly coming true.

^He is bothered by it. You SEE him being bothered by it, like ten seconds into the episodes, before the opening credits even start. Him wanting to be a harem king doesn't have anything to do with it.

Remember, being a harem king doesn't mean he wants to step all over their feelings.

I didn't like Azazels voice, he sounds too generic as an older character.
Dig me up from under what is covering the better part of me.
