Here are the previews. I'm not so sure about the first lines by Lavinia, but the context is there.

Well, that was... something else.

Grigori, the Five Families, and the Magicians are in full force here...

Baraqiel training Tobio's group can be interpreted as him "atoning" for Shuri.

I wonder what the "Three Sacred Treasures" are that Azazel is talking about here.

Also, Vali's a bit older here, so we will see how he had grown (as well as his relationship with Lavinia) from the first volume.

And "Team Abyss" led by Satanael... Oh boy.

So at age 13, the Boosted Gear awakened in Issei. Wonder what triggered it and I wonder if Issei actually used it to protect himself but has no recollection of it. That would be interesting.

The 'Three Sacred Treasures' refers to the three Longinus that are holy relics: True Longinus, Sephiroth Graal, and Incinerate Anthem.

And is Seiryu Kushihashi a boy or a girl?

Has there been anything in DxD to reference the Boosted Gear's awakening? The first story arc (Volumes 1 and 2) are called "The Red Dragon Emperor's Awakening" (by the wiki, at least). I never read those volumes, so there could be something there.
The only tidbits we have about Ise's childhood are from his parents and Irina, mostly.

Maybe it awakened but Issei was too weak and pathetic to know it or even use the power. Still Issei's dragon aura was present which allowed the Grigori to locate him as they try to keep tabs on the Sacred Gear possessors, especially if they have a Longinus.

@Raptor: What, you haven't read Volumes 1 and 2 of DxD? Why? And if there's something you're curious about, you should read them I think (just a suggestion).

@Lucidrago: Yeah, I agree. It's Ise before he even became a Devil and started training, so he's very weak.

But if the preview mentions that the Red Dragon Emperor had awakened, then I guess it's possible that Ise awakened the Boosted Gear without realizing it.

Anyway, yeah, I also want to see how the relationship between Lavinia and Vali is here. Siblings, or more than that?

It seems like Suzaku is already fine with Tobio. But the other big families' next heads are antagonistic towards him it seems. And we also got the name of the person who seems to be the possessor of Incinerate Anthem at the time, Augusta of the Purple Flame, Wizard of Oz.

We've been known about Augusta. It's just now that we're learning she's the Wizard of Oz.

I think Boosted Gear awakening in Issei is going to be something like "this kid has a sacred gear we don't know what it is but it could potentially become a threat to us so keep an eye on him if his sacred gear goes out of control kill him if necessary" with a possible cameo of Raynare similar to Kokabiel's cameo in Volume 1 of Slash/Dog.

Wait, is it referring to Ise awakening 4 years before Slash Dog or 4 years before the Main story? If it's the first one then that means it was when Vali was 8 so Ise would be a year or so younger. Maybe it was around the time Irina was still around and he protected her before both passed out?

I have just seen seasons 1 and 2 so many times, I felt it wasn't necessary to go back and reread Volumes 1-4, although I have read backtracked that for 4.

It's very important. The anime always leaves out plenty of important details in the light novels. And they changed a few things. Not any major things that affect the plot like Season 3 did. Like Lord Gremory and Lord Phenex were the ones who were discussing the appearance of the Hakuryuukou at the end of Volume 2. But in the anime they changed it to Sirzechs and Grayfia.

I know about that, yes. I'm content as it is, to be honest. There are more examples, like in Volume 4, the order of scenes are changed, like the pool scene and Sirzechs coming to the ORC clubroom, but overall they're pretty much the same.
I'll probably read them sooner or later.

As Bennia Lover said, it's 4 years before the main story. This Volume itself is probably set 4 years prior to the events of the main story.

@Bennia Lover: I'm still not clear on the age difference between Vali and Ise, and who the younger one is. I guess I forgot about it. But if Vali is older than Ise and he's 12 years old in Slash Dog, shouldn't Ise be 11? Or is Ise a year older and was 13 at this time, when the Boosted Gear first awakened?

Also, if it was around this time that the Boosted Gear awakened in him, I really want to know what triggered it. My guess is that he unconsciously awakened and then passed out afterwards, without knowing what he just did. He probably doesn't even remember doing it.

@CCP: Yeah, Raynare did say that they'd been watching Ise because he'd been marked as someone with a Sacred Gear that made him a potential threat to Grigori (the name of the organization wasn't given at the time, but yeah). Raynare turned out to be incompetent, though, since she didn't realize that Ise had the Boosted Gear, and she was late in realizing it even after the mark of the red dragon appeared on it. She thought it was Twice Critical. Rias had to tell her that it's the Boosted Gear.

@Raptor: IIRC, the part from before Ise was brought to the ORC by Kiba is also slightly different in the anime. The part where he was attacked by a fallen angel at night. I'll go and read it again to refresh my memory just in case. Then I'll come back here and say what happened in the LN there. But if I recall correctly, in the LN, the number of attacks was one.

Edit:
Ise was attacked by a fallen angel only once as a devil before he found out about the Occult Research Club. Donaseek found him and attacked him once. Rias saved him then. He found himself sleeping naked with her the next morning and it turns out she shared her aura with him in the nude to heal him. Then later, Kiba comes to his class and takes him to the club room. Done. No more fallen angel attacks at night.

Yeah Kalawarner and Mittelt never made an appearance in the light novels. They were just mentioned by Raynare after Rias showed her their feathers after Rias had killed him.

And the way Raynare appeared at first is her appearance. She never had an oldet, sexy form as her default appearance. The young teenage girl(A.K.A. 'shitty discount' Akeno) was her default appearance.

And Issei should be 18 at the current moment. So he should be 14 in Slash Dog. And Irina left long before that. Like she moved to England like 10 years before the main story or something like that.

Again Issei was too weak and pathetic to assess any power. Maybe it awakened but due to Issei being so weak and pathetic it was very faint but it was there.
