After rescuing his master, Rias Gremory, from the Dimensional Gap, Red Dragon Emperor and aspiring Harem King Issei Hyoudou can finally return to his high school activities alongside fellow members of the Occult Research Club: Yuuto Kiba, Asia Argento, Xenovia Quarta, and Irina Shidou. The group soon embarks on a school trip to Kyoto.

While peacefully visiting a temple thanks to Rias' spell, an attacking group of local youkai breaks the calm atmosphere. Once the altercation ends, the club learns that the mythical nine-tailed fox that protected the city was abducted and that someone has framed them for the act. Issei and his friends will now have to fight to protect the city and save their school trip from a planned disaster!

In the meantime, Rias, who had to stay in Tokyo with Akeno Himejima and Koneko Toujou, grows increasingly restless to have left the perverted Issei alone with the other girls of the Occult Research Club. Beyond this vague anxiety, what is the exact nature of the feelings Rias has been struggling with for the past few months?

Art: 9/10

The thing that I like in TNK's were the character design, They are absolutely stunning!

Now for the Passione, since they are the one ...

From the depths of fanservicy guilty pleasure of hell makes the return of High School DxD Hero. It’s been nearly 3 years since the last time this anime aired on TV and to be honest, it needed a break after the disastrous third season. High School DxD Born left a bad taste in my mouth after seeing how far the franchise has fallen. Is Hero a chance for the show to redeem itself?

The fourth season covers the volume 9 and 10 from the light novels. This didn’t come as a surprise as the franchise has a tendency to build more into the story with established ...

I love High School DXD. It is easily one of my favorite anime franchises and has consistently been a good watch. Unfortunately, this is not the case for High School DXD Hero. After three years of waiting, I daresay that it would have been better for the series to have stayed dead. That's how bad it is.

["Too late. 3 years too late."]

First of all, let's discuss the smaller elephant in the room. This sequel took 3 years to be aired. I'm well aware of the complications that occurred during its production. Transferring a popular franchise to another studio must be a lot of work. Unfortunately, ...

The Seasonal Quarterly: Spring 2018 (Part 1)

In these opening weeks of the Spring 2018 anime season, Steins;Gate 0 starts off as the by far highest rated anime, although Megalo Box is the new heavy hitter if we look past sequels. This and more in the opening edition of The Seasonal Quarterly.
