OMG... That oppai dragon song scene... Oh, Issei had blushed watching it... so cooool.
What. Was. Even. Point. Of. Animating. It. In. That. Way? "Don't rage that we cut out that song. We will do it later. Here! Happy?"?

I think I'm really done with HDxD anime.

Ouch man, just ouch. I would not have had a problem with this season if they actually kept the rating game between Sona and Rias in. I mean, come on. Saji getting beaten to a pulp and checking out the overpowered Reverse would have been fun. Also, episodes 1-2 6-9 were the best ones, as they stuck to the damn source material.

If they had to add in extra stuff, then why not put volumes 5, 6, 7, and the extra life of volume 8 in? That should do for 12 episodes. Damn, now season 4 is looking like crap because
Spoiler for Volume 9 and 10 Shenanigans:
was already introduced, and it might not even happen. That shitty impersonation that just happens to be able to go into JD was rekt like nothing.

Oppai Dragon Song was a bust.

Chichigami was a bust.

Now time to hope for Volume 20 not to be shit.

And the whole Loki thing, wasn't close to being an improvement in my eyes.
yeah, the big bad question here is "WHYYYY???".

For what purpose that DxD Born was changed in such a way? to cover more LN vols in a season? But then why do we have all original content in the last 3 episodes? Worse, they just seem to be out of nowhere.

For Zero no Tsukaima Last season, I can understand that they "butchered" the story so that the anime itself can have an ending (regardless of it being good or bad), plus the author died before the LN could be finished.

But for BorN, I can't even imagine or think of any legitimate reasons other than the studio and Ishibumi had gone nuts

This is the first time I've safely been able to view the discussion thread for a final episode before watching that episode myself. Because somehow I just knew it'd be nothing but complaints first.

My main question is, why the change? I had a similar argument where they could've added the Issei/Rias dynamic in the original story line, while introducing Ross/Kuroka earlier as well.

Im going to give a 2 just for the oppai song. Memory loss is shit, even if the show is good or not, its still shit.

The lowest grade i can give it is painful and thats what this was. an anti-climactic end and the rest just seemed like fluff to finish the show. the Oppai dragon song at this point was one of those you get it even if you dont need it and showing the festival in the way they did makes a lot of it meaningless.
If i could give it below painful i would but sadly this is what i get.
Now in the end its gonna be about a 5.5 out of 10. Still this is disappointing frankly The season as a whole was a letdown but no worries

Seriously majority of you people here are acting like children who had their candies taken or rather a modified version of damsel in distress because the anime didn't adapt according to the LN and added original content.

Is it good, no, but is it so bad that you guys need to complain over and over. People are just complaining over and over because the anime went original which to me is a lousy reason. Sure plot wise it's not the best and i myself didn't really like it but they didn't do anything that could ruin the story entirely. So there's no need of complain like it's the end of the world.

Overall the anime pretty much followed the story. The only thing the left out was the rating game in vollum 5. While they did move/skip/change some scenes that was also done in Season 1-2. While I was let down somewhat by this season overall I still think it was pretty decent.

And you dont understand the reason we're complaining. Which is the problem in the first place.

I'm trying to figure out why Issei didn't just use dress break on Rias.

I kind of feel like the whole Rias scale mail was entirely unnecessary and they should've just had the Issei clone go Juggernaut Drive from the get go.

Im complaining about the passing, the transition between scenes, the lack of context for some parts, the way some things are presented and solved. Those things can be seen even while one is an anime viewer. Many people have standards, even for series like this one(harem).

Why bother bringing up Raynare when you are going to use the memory loss and render the whole phobia issue back to square one

In the mindset of the characters, probably didn't know about the memory effects of the Dimension Gap. As for the anime, foreshadow and build up the events for next season. Ishibumi felt there was a lack of the Issei/Rias development, along with the trauma, and decided to build it up some more. It was really jarring to say the least. Just wait till season 4, since the anime will most likely break the anime original curse based on pre-order sales.

You complained that the sports festival ending is meaningless then what would you have preferred? A completely different ending that won't be linked to the plot?

The fact is i understand why people are complaining because i myself am not pleased with what they done with Season 3 perhaps i'm even more pissed off than you or anyone here. But then again, i also try to make sure that i don't simply focus on all the bad points and miss out the good points.

For example, Great Red. Is it a bad move that they showed Great Red helping Ise and Rias considering what will happen in the future? The part where Rose becomes a Devil, did they handle that poorly? And the sports festival that you said was meaningless, how was it meaningless, this is High School DxD, is it a bad move that they stick to the title and decide on a high school like ending?

Those are weakly handled i agree, i never said those are good hell i was extremely pissed off with how they handle the date and Akeno reconciling with her dad. This season definitely doesn't live up to the previous two but it could be worst, so i'm actually just thankful that they didn't go beyond the irreparable stage.

Seriously compared to SNO, this is still safe, SNO has no ground for salvage at all, this one here is still salvageable.
