Well don't you think Sona wanted to see how long the shield would hold up against Issei's attacks? Again it was just a spar and the main objective wasn't for Issei to win. His job was to be an opponent for the Student Council members that have ASGs.

I already know that, so you don't have to say it (the part about him not having to win and all that). Seeing how long the shield can hold up against Ise's attacks makes sense and is good, yeah. But seeing that Ise can go around it would also give them an idea on how to use it to better cover blind spots (if possible).

But yeah, I guess it doesn't matter. I'll drop it.

Osman is right even if it's a spar he could have helped them get stronger and Issei would know the ASG's more up close and personal, and that he could use in the match between him and Sona.
But Issei's not the sharpest knife in the drawer outside of combat so i guess it's to be expected.

Well that's kind of obvious if you could use an attack to get around the shield. But do we know if it works the same as a magic circle or not? The main point was testing the durability of the shield and how Tsubasa used it, not Tsubasa herself having a blind spot.

@Sparda4: Back then, they didn't even know that the Azazel Cup would take place or that Ise's team would have to fight Sona's. It seems like this is before Volume 20 and after Volume 10, though I'm sure when exactly.

@Lucidrago: Yeah, them wanting to get to know the durability of the shield and how Tsubasa used the shield is admittedly a good point. And you're also right that Ise couldn't have known if the shield could expand or move around to block attacks. Or maybe he knew it wouldn't help and that's why he didn't bother?

The translator actually released a timeline regarding when the short stories in DX3 take place.

Life. 1 (Asia’s Treasure): Between Vol 13 and 14

Life. 2 (The Ordinary Days of Red Dragon Emperor): Straight after Vol 14

Life. 3 (Let’s Go with Training! ~Mascot Chapter~): Between Vol 16 and 17

Life. 4 (Talents of the Student Council): Start off in the middle of Vol 22, main part in the middle of Vol 19

Life. 5 (Worldly Desire of Steel): Between Vol 19

Extra Life. 1 (Cross X Crisis): Starts off in the middle of Vol 17~19, main part few years before

Extra Life. 2 (Graduation Trip and Vortex Bunch): Middle of Vol 22

[There's a typo in my previous post. When I said " . . . though I'm sure when exactly", what I wanted to say was, " . . . though I'm not sure when exactly".]

@CCP: Thanks.

So is "Worldly Desires of Steel" the one that has Seekvaira and Elmenhilde in it (and also the one where Elmenhilde fell in love with Ise?)?

About "Asia's Treasure" being between Volumes 13 and 14. Does that mean it took place sometime after the Extra Life in Volume 13, "The Worry of the Next-Next Heir-sama"?

And I'm guessing Extra Life.2 in DX3 is about the Kuou Academy third year students' graduation trip?

Yeah, Worldly Desires of Steel is definitely the one with Seekvaira and Elmenhilde and yes about your remaining questions.

Tbh, my opinion of team Sitri(ability/strength wise) got a lot better after this chapter. Those ASGs are pretty impressive.

But

Damn that name is long! What is wrong with Azazel-senseiís naming sense?!

It feels like itís to do with his chuunibyou and black history pastÖ
Quote:
ďThatís the same as the one that Azazel swung about at the Sports Festival! I donít mind it at all! We need that kind of personality in politics!Ē

Seriously?! Do we really need that chuunibyou in underworld politics?! I-I canít believe it!
This though

^ Yeah, that. Funny.

But even though that sword's other name has "Dragon Slaying" something or other in it, Ise didn't feel any Dragon Slayer aura from it at all. So that means it's not a Dragon Slayer and really just has that in its name to make it sound cool. Man, Azazel and his naming sense.

Still, though, Azazel's chuunibyou runs deep. That's all that can be said about that naming sense.

Well he got "better" in the naming scheme after a while. They are shorter.

Yeah, I'll give him that at least. But the chuunibyou is still there.

It just seems like some just string words together they think sound cool just to give something an awesome name. For example, Dulio's Balance Breaker.

Hi, new here. I'm just wondering, what happened in Life.5 Worldly Desire of Steel? If any of you here knows anything please spoil it to me if possible. I'm dying of waiting for the translation to catch up. Thank you.

Yeah I remember post about it either here on Animesuki or on the wikia I can't remember which though. I believe it involves a stray devil/vampire so the Gremory group are send to deal with it, Ise's grandmother lives close by to where they were send so he and Asia go visit her after talking they go deal with the stray with the help of Seekvaira Agares and Elmemhilde Karnstein (who's attitude towards Ise will have changed) after the stray is deal with Ise and Asia go back to visit his grandmother who asks them if she should be expecting a great grandchild.

I read from somewhere that Elmenhilde drink Issei's blood. Is it true? And why is the illustration for the chapter is like Seekvaira Agares is kinda mad at Elmemhilde Karnstein?

Elmenhilde drinking some of Ise's blood would be from Volume 23. I don't think that Seekvaira is mad at Elmemhilde.

I thought that she fallen for Ise due to his blood, I guess wrong I guess. Then why did Elmenhilde fall in love with Ise? Because of something he did? Or because of self-redeem? I'm guessing the former one.
