High School DxD BorN Episode Nine Thoughts

High School DxD Born

So, it turns out that Asia was actually “killed” by this fella called Shalba Beelzebub. I got pumped up here when Issei went on that huge berserk and actually killed this Shalba chap. I didn’t really think Issei should kill anyone but I didn’t mind him killing Shalba as I do feel that he deserved it, especially as he killed Asia. He beat and killed Shalba but using the Divide Dividing that he borrowed or stole from Vali.

I was really concerned when Rias went after Issei in an attempt to calm him down and make him return to his original body. I was especially worried when he hit Rias. However, I did have my faith in her. I knew that if anyone was going to calm Issei down, it was going to be Rias. It looks like that it was her tears that touched his face and her sad voice that made Issei’s mind click. It was a lovely moment. Their hugs were nice too.

That new girl, Orphis, implied that there was some sort of dark matter magic that was sealed within Issei. It seems like it was that material that made Issei dream bad dreams of Raynare. It looks like that Orphis removed it and that was what helped Issei recognise Rias and return him to his normal state. All was well as Asia wasn’t really killed but somehow sent to that Dimensional Gap by teleportation. It was a good job Vali saved her and managed to supress Issei’s rage.

It does make me question Vali’s allegiance. I thought he was a villain but this episode suggests otherwise. It turns out that his true goal is to beat the Great Red, who lives in the Dimensional Gap. He looked pretty badass, I must say. He doesn’t seem to be interested in fighting though. He just ignored everyone and continued flying in that Dimensional Gap thing.

I was confused a little bit. Orphis’ true purpose is to bask in silence and if that’s the case why doesn’t she just seclude herself in the mountains with no one else around? Perhaps I misunderstood something.

I am getting confused at the new characters that keep on appearing and I found that I can’t remember their names. I can remember Rossweisse as she is pretty and she is nice who is rather insecure and sensitive about not having a boyfriend. I can’t understand why she can’t get a boyfriend as she is a beauty. Then again, the same can be said to all the other girls in the series but quite a lot of them will be with Issei in one way or another so they don’t count. Haha.

All ended well minus Issei’s arm. It looks like his Boosted Gear didn’t transform back completely.

High School DxD BorN Episode Eight Thoughts

High School DxD Born

Issei used some of his wits in the battle with the pawns and has shown that he doesn’t just rely on power. He said himself that he shouldn’t just rely on power. But… how can someone communicate with boobs? I then remind myself that this is High School DxD and no one can read the female minds, well, the boobs like Issei can. Haha. He looked like a competent leader too and dictated the battle due to boob-reading. Haha. What is that technique called? Booblingual I think. I.E., Boob Translation.

Xenovia kicked butt with her two swords. Issei giving her, well, lending her the Ascalon sword has really paved off. It does seem like the stronger the emotion the devil has, the stronger they get. It was true for the case of Akeno and Rias. Because Issei promised Akeno to take her out on a date she grew humongous motivation. Rias grey humongous power as well when she was bantering with Akeno and together they took down the Queen and two Bishops.  Good for them. It was a really good idea on Koneko’s part but I can’t help but fear for Issei. He’s going to have to deal with an excited Akeno and a jealous Rias when this whole ordeal is over. XD

Ugh, Freed is back. Why does he keep coming back? I know his appearance is significant and all but I still don’t like him. XD I thought he went through a humongous power up, yet, Kiba solo’d him. I did get pumped up when listening to Freed’s speech but got even more pumped up when Diodora gave his speech. I thought Freed was bad but Diodora is a really horrible individual. At least with Freed what you see is what you get but Diodora hid his evil side behind his smile.

I’m somewhat confused with Raynare’s involvement. Did Diodora make Raynare into a Fallen Angel or did he simply plan to kill her and give her power to Asia and make Asia his Bishop? It seems like he’s planned a lot of events even before the first season of High School DxD. I feel sorry for Asia on one hand but on the other hand I think everything has worked fine as she’s having a happy life with Issei and Rias. Anyway- I was really pleased when Issei literally beat the living snot out of him.

I did expect Diodora to put up a better fight seeing as he’s a King rank and all. Then again, maybe Issei’s anger gave him a huge power-up enough to beat any kind of King. I’m glad he didn’t kill Diodora as two wrongs never make a right. Issei proved to be the bigger man by not killing him.

And Asia kneels down and prays to God and no doubt she will get one of those electric shocks to the head. That appears to be an on-going gag in the show. But wait, a light shines over Asia and she disappears! What on earth was that! Issei and Rias busted their stomachs to save Asia and she just disappears? Maybe, just a little theory in my mind… Irina was a human but then became an angel. Perhaps, Asia grew a stronger holy power and has transported to Heaven and will eventually come back. But, maybe, she’ll become an angel instead of a re-incarnated devil.

I wonder when Asia will come back. I actually wouldn’t be surprised if Raynare actually comes back alive herself. It seems like she’s very important in this season and the more she keeps on being mentioned the more I think that she will come back alive. If she does I personally believe that she will be re-born as a better person. =)

High School DxD BorN Episode One Thoughts

High School DxD Born

This show had a nice introduction when Issei was dreaming a pleasant dream involving the beautiful ladies until Raynare entered his mind. He dreamt of her once yet he seemed to be really bothered by it. That’s what happens sometimes in real life. Sometimes dreams feel real, so real that you get caught up in them and it takes a while to realise that they were just a dream. As Issei went through that traumatic experience with Yuuma I imagine it could take him a while to get over it. Then again, why is he suddenly thinking about her? There has to be a reason why she is back on the scene. His hug to Asia was sudden but cute.

Issei is one lucky chap to have so many beautiful ladies move into his house but I never anticipated that the house would undergo a change. Issei’s room looks so spacious. Haha. I think he needs a bigger bed if Rias, Asia and now Akeno are all going to sleep in the same bed as him. I like how Asia snuggled up to Issei as Rias and Akeno had a bit of a spat with each other. I didn’t anticipate Akeno appearing from the bed covers like the way she did.

Rias seems to be bothered that Issei is not calling her by her first name. Instead, he’s referring to her as her president title. Rias shouldn’t worry too much as it will only be a matter of time before he speaks her name. 🙂

Azazel’s speech to Issei about boobs was… unique and inspiring in its own way. Haha. I wonder if Issei is actually going to act upon Azazel’s suggestion in the next few episodes. He, Azazel, told Rias to stop being soft with her underlings. I can’t help but think that Rias has experienced bad luck so far. She was told that she was hesitant by Azazel, Issei is not calling her by her first name and I think she has a bit of a rivalry with Akeno.

That train ride looked pretty cool. It was a steam train as well. =D The Gremory family own a lot of buildings. I’m a bit confused about the reference to Asgard. I think the Gremory family represent the Asgard country or organisation, but it will probably become clearer to me in future episodes. =)

During that train ride Issei and co were somehow teleported away from the train and from Rias’ side. I did have some suspicions that something was up seeing as it all happened when Rias was together with Azazel. That fight with that Tannin dragon was pretty awesome. I like that dragon as a character, he looks pretty cool. I wonder how he was made into a devil though. Is this going to be unveiled at some point in the series?

What’s going to happen to Koneko? She has been acting weird lately. I naturally assumed that she was developing feelings for Issei, given the nature of this anime. However, it turns out that she has an older sister who appears to be up to no good. Perhaps the sister wants to take Koneko back and Koneko is aware of that?

The Title High School DxD “Born” is certainly interesting. The word “Born” means the birth of something, especially the birth of babies. However, in this case, I see it more as a metaphor. Perhaps someone awakens a special ability. Or, maybe, someone dies and comes back to life. I.E., someone is re-born. Maybe that’s why Issei is dreaming of Raynare. Perhaps it’s a premonition of her being re-born? I can’t see that happening but it will certainly be ground-breaking if it did. Perhaps there is no meaning behind the title “Born” and it’s just a title and nothing more than that.

I’m looking forward to more episodes. =)

 Dragons Rioting Volume One Japan Manga

I just found out this morning that Yen Press have licensed the manga “Dragons Rioting”. I’ve been excited and buzzing for the whole day. I’ve been so excited that I promptly did a Capoeira work out followed by yoga cool down. =D I’ve always wondered if Seven Seas Entertainment or Yen Press will ever license Dragons Rioting. I noticed that Yen Press tend to license manga that are published by Dragon Age in Japan.

Monthly Girls’ Nozaki-kun is among the 11 other manga that have also been licensed by Yen Press.

I’m very excited and can’t wait for the first release of Dragons Rioting. =D
Thanks for Reading. =)
