(High School DxD Hero Episode 0: An important retcon of the final four episodes of High School DxD BorN)

It has been three years since the last High School DxD season with the previous installment being High School DxD BorN. A season that deviated from its original source material, and added anime original content, specifically episodes 9-12, and major changes to it overall storyline. Changes that angered light novel fans, its author Ichiei Ishibumi, and many others individuals.

This is what happened: Ichiei Ishibumi changed to a different studio, i.e. Passione, and with that change comes a new director, a new series read more

I had to give everything 10 out of 10 since they follow the novel story perfectly it's almost just like how I Imagine it to be and it was really great of them to patch up what TNK screwed up in born.

the art is also great to me many people were upset with the new art style but I was glad they finally got a chance to change it since I Hated TNK art style of the story I feel this one is closer to the source material though if I had to choose, mad house that did The "Ambition of Oda Nobuna" that read more

My review is based solely on the comparison between this episode and the version of it that it ruined near the end of Born. Keep in mind that 'manga canon' and 'muh story arc' doesn't matter. This is about enjoyment and quality.

Spoilers for this and Born.

It sucks, to put it plainly, but I'll elaborate scene by scene.

Asia's disappearance:
In the original she was depicted slowly fading out of existence while exuding this sort of holy, fantastic energy, as if she was so pure that such a thing was natural, and by the time we realised something was wrong, it was too late, so when Issei's eyes read more

some minor DxD Born spoilers are included in this Review

First, I want to give advice to anyone who've watched DxD Born and satisfied with it, you should SKIP this episode, just go to first episode of DxD Hero, there will be animation difference you'll either content or disappointed. But plot-wise, I don't think we need this episode as "bridge", we can continue into 4th season(DxD Hero) with final Born memories in mind.

As I stated above, this one is has some differences from final 4-episodes of DxD born but I think it's unnecessary. Main difference is Rias 'Arc' that's completely removed. I don't read the read more
