The event to decide the “strongest”!

I already said it before. I am Ise’s sword. ―<Xenovia Quarta>

And the biggest as well as the last event waiting for Hyoudou Issei’s highschool life is――

The international Rating Game Tournament aimed for the every single forces rings the start of it.

Rivals and Gods that continues to appear in front of Hyoudou Issei.

He was already a being which God-class beings cannot ignore any longer――


――Those who he had met till now and the strong foes who he would encounter from now will all become his rival.

I realized just now that this isnt simply about choosing or not choosing.

Wow, looks like there's going to be a Rating Game World Tournament for the final arc! Nice.
And Issei is going to be splitting from Rias for this. About time.
So Issei is going to parcitipate by being the 'leader' of his own group. Can pretty much confirm Asia, Xenovia, and most likely Rossweisse joining Ise's side. Though from the quote Koneko, Kiba, Gasper and maybe Akeno will be in Rias's side.

Kinda reminds me of YYH's Makai Unification Tournament for some reason since it will be the tournament in a final arc. Though the later was not a team match.
Maybe Ise and Shiva will pull of a Yusuke vs Yomi. Wonder how far Ise can reach in the tournament with his group.

The new volume looks really promising.

I know that we already see Isse acting as a leader in the past, but will be interesting to see him in that role in this final arc.

I also like the fact that it seems that we will learn more regarding the Five great clans.

@Noman: Yeah, it'll be great to see Ise leading his own team in this tournament, but he's going to have to fight Rias, too, isn't he? I just hope it's not like that in the official Rating Games. Ise's her Pawn, so he shouldn't have to fight her (normally).

I love this quote from Ise:

I really hope he'll answer Akeno's question in this Volume by choosing all of the girls who love him, as the Harem King.

Anyway, yeah, this Volume sounds like it'll be good. Looking forward to it (but, of course, we have to wait for Volume 21 to be translated first).

I think Rose is only going with him for the International Rating Game Tournament. Ise might not actually have her in his Peerage officially. We'll see, though. We have to see what Ise's going to do with his Evil Pieces when he gets them and who he's going to be using them on (he'll have to use them on some people and then trade with Rias for the ones he wants from her of the same types of Pieces).

I thought that she was talking about Issei's house. Or at least that is what I thought when I read that.

I'm pretty sure that he do not need to reincarnate someone for the trade, and that he just need to give Rias his unused pieces. For example, for Xenovia he just needs to give his Knight piece to Rias, same for Asia with the Bishop.

The same happened with Ravel from what I remember.

Saji got a nickname

Anyway, seems like Diehauser might participate. Would be great, he's a cool guy.

Rose joining Ise wouldn't surprise me tbh, she's the newest member along with Asia and Xenovia so her loyalty to Rias might not be like that of Kiba/Gasper/Akeno's.

Hell yeah. It sounds like this arc is gonna be decently long, if we're going to be experiencing the "last event in Ise's highschool life". He just started his third year, so that takes up an entire year of story...?

Ishi did also mention one final big development for all the girls in the vol.22 preview blog post. Finally we're getting some more real romance.

hmm... so Rose wants to join Issei with Asia and Xenovia. Didn't expect that. Rias can replace Asia and Xenovia with Valerie and Tosca but who could replace Rose I wonder.

Issei now appears to have both bishops, a knight, and a rook secured but that is still a lot of empty positions to take part in the international tournament. Perhaps Ravel will have a list completely ready of strong people to fill the remaining positions quickly.

I think Valerie should require a mutation piece.

Touche. I hope something happens on that somewhere in this Volume. Later in the Arc, if not in this Volume.

@Cake: About Saji's nickname, yeah, I liked it. I also liked Ise's one, though. Especially the translation of it.

"'Sekiryuutei of the Blazing Truth' Ise" has quite the nice ring to it. Me like.

@Gary29: Yeah, some real romance would be good.

I see that Volume 22 will serve as the last one for High School DxD light novel series. Looks like Issei going have a long fight in his life. I hope that it will have a good, sweet ending as well as having a really good future. As well as Issei ends up not only with Rias, but also his entire harem to make his girls happy. That way, he can finally fulfill his dream of becoming a harem king.

Yep, this is it guys. Last arc of Highschool DXD. Lets hope that Ischi ends the series with a bang and with how the preview for the arc is going it sounds like he'll deliver. There's also him teasing a possible sequel with the last couple of volumes and EX but that depends on how well sales go near the end. But whatever the future brings let us not go in tears of sadness, but joy of what has been brought to us.

But on a positive note. HIGH CLASS TIME, BABY! PLACE YOUR BETS ON WHO JOINS THE PEERAGE. I PUT 20 ON LEFAY.

I'm sorry if I sound like an a-hole but, those titles that sound over the top like "Sekiryuutei of the Blazing truth" "The Dragon king of the black wicked" etc. are just hilarious to me but I like the ones that are more simple like Sairaorg's
