Ok, I like a discussion so here we go.

Maddo_Scientisto said:
Because you actually expect a highschooler that live for boobs and never entered a single fight in his life to actually fight on par with demons and fallen angels that obviously had years to master fighting technique and their powers and that on his first few fight?

LOL, that's why I said he should play HIS part and NOT be the damn hero, and YES he is trying to be the hero by attempting to do things that could get him killed!

Maddo_Scientisto said:
We see the character thought, of course he'll think that he is weak but that is not whining about it. He's not going to Rias or anyone and complaining about how weak he is, he's sucking it up and is ready to train and that is something that should be praised.

And why the fuck do we need to be reminded that he is weak?

We can already see it for our damn selves that the MC is useless.

Maddo_Scientisto said:
After Rias saved him in ep3 he asked her to save Asia but she told him that she didn't want to.

He planned to go alone and I probably would have gone as well; it's not trying to be a hero it's just not wanting to feel guilt.

So if this was real life, and you know you CAN'T beat these guys, you would go on a suicide mission just because you want to save a cute girl?

OK, sure, yeah, I totally see the rationality behind that concept.

I totally agree that's the best course of action.

Here's a more rational approach: you persuade Rias and the others, you BEG if you have to and you tell them that this girl is NOT a threat and she could be converted to your side.

Instead he doesn't say any of these things and tries to go on a suicide mission, he's lucky the blonde haired guy and the loli tagged along.

Maddo_Scientisto said:
The plot is pretty much average so far but the most retarded thing in this anime is the boobs, not the plot. The story is much more consistant than most harem-battle we've seen in the last 3 years.

I agree this plot is average and consistent to what we've seen, that's why I said that almost all Harem-battle anime are done this way.

And if you think that the majority of the people are tuning in for the plot and not the tits then I call bullshit on YOU.

Maddo_Scientisto said:
Like I said, your reason for hating are bad, it sound like you were desesperate to paint the show worst than it actually is and that gave birth to your post.

So far the only thing I hate is the retarded MC, I agree with you that the story is consistent to what we've seen from Harem-Battle anime.

However, I'm here for the quality ecchi (it's not that great, but it's the most ecchiest anime of the season, and the girls are pretty likable/entertaining so I'm good), but while I'm at it, I'll also put in my two cents on how stupid the rest of the show really is.

Well, whatever, if I sounded too critical, it's probably because I'm very cynical towards anime like this when it comes to story.

The last harem-battle anime that I really liked for the story was HighSchool of the Dead.

Yeah, the story is horribly cliched for hollywood, but we've never seen that in anime, the MC (Takeshi) was a great lead and it although it had the feel of a blockbuster movie instead of an anime, I loved how the characters interacted with each other, which until now I can't say the same for this anime.

Although, who knows maybe it gets better, I hope it does, although I think my hatred for the MC will probably continue once I saw the preview for next episode :/

I can't tell you how many times I'v been beaten because of the girl. I even almost got stabbed because I helped a girl who was attacked by ex-boyfriend... I would never run and leave a girl like that. What if he stabbed her? And I saw what was going on. Would I be able to forgive myself? NO!!! I am irrational, but I don't care. I'd rather die helping someone, then die as a selfish bastard....

As for the episode I love it... I could watch it even without ( . Y . ).... I am glad I started watching this....

I wish girls form mew mew changed like this.........

Koneko-chan! So adorable. -Note for Issei- Never call Koneko-chan a midget lol. Kiba is a cool guy, awesome sacred gear too.

Now that the sacred gear is out, it looks like Aashia is lifeless. Poor Aashia just getting used like that :/. But that means its time for Issei to get his revenge on Yuuma. That Mitelt fallen angel is like a doll, cutee.

I lol'ed at that crazy exorcist's "For real?" and "Ittai.." haha.

Poor Asia, but she will definitely be resurrected. Some random confession, I love Asia's breast the most in DxD so far xp

This was a rather pretty good episode, I didn't think I'd take things seriously with all the eechi but so far this shows starting to prove to me that this anime can be really good with the eechi; I'm quite happy about that. The small fight scenes were pretty good, that one fallen angel guy (too lazy to look up his name) with the gun and sword is still lolzy. Well, it looks like the big battle is gonna start next episode so I'm looking forward to that.

Damn, that OST.

Issei may be weak, but I bet he'll get stronger!
We find out about his Sacred Gear's doubling power and about a Pawn's Promotion "on the other side of the board".

Never call Koneko a midget. Never.
Yuuto has a Sacred Gear called Devil's Blade. Pretty cool.
Akeno's transformation!

Another Fallen Angel? She'll be Loli Fallen Angel.
And look, Mr. Fallen Angel and Ms. Fallen Angel came back!
Yuuma comes back too, but as Reinare the Fallen Angel. And see steals Twilight Healing, Asia's Sacred Gear.

Noo, Asia! Don't die!
I’m always searching for something, for someone. This feeling has possessed me I think, from that day… That day when the stars came falling.

What's all this plot? I thought this was a high school harem show?!

Sadly wasn't really shocked about Asia's death since both opening/ending pretty much spoil that she'll survive somehow.
So Akeno is a devil miko seems legit^^.

This series is getting better with each episode.

Even when someone die in a dramatic moments, they have to show boob shot, right? xD
Well, of course, I'd guess she won't stay dead for long, since she's a main.

Kiba is a pretty cool guy in the end. He looked like a self-centered dude at the beginning, but I guess it's because that opinion was influenced by Issei.

Issei power is pretty damn strong. He's pretty much a copycat. When a member is missing, he can complete the group. One thing we learned too : don't call Koneko ''chibi''.

Freed punch in the face was satisfying. His corpse would be more satisfying though.

I really became attached to Asia, even with that little screen time, so killing her off would hurt :( never mind, the opening spoiled it xD

Dope action btw 👌🏻

This show is pretty meh. I'll probably drop it here soon.

But at least I laughed my ass off when Issei was all "I can feel my power increasing" right as a light spear pierced his torso. Haha dumbass
