Shinmai >> dxd, thou :(
basara is better than any guy in dxd
ecchi puts dxd to shame and the girls are actually useful
and only 7 voumes in, the story already far exceeds dxd's


I don't like basara too much, but he still far better than main guy in dxd. Issei is one of the most annoying main character I ever seen in any echii anime.

I also like Maria & Yuki more than any of the females in DxD except Xenovia

Basara was bland.
Ecchi was over the top and repetitive.
Story sucked.


Echii in DxD feels even more repetitive.

Story sucks you say ! LOL. Are you implying that DxD story is better ?! What DxD story is about ? oppai ?

I'm not saying that I hate DxD. Actually, I like DxD just like any other harem/echii with action. I just do not see anything special about DxD that makes it better than any other echii anime.


I honestly hate comparing harem animes to other harem animes because I want to watch them as their own thing you know. I read both Sister New Devil and DxD light novels on Baka Tsuki and so far I like Sister New Devil better because Basara is one of the better harem male leads out there. Unlike most Harem males I actually can relate to Basara and he doesn't make the story annoying or uninterested. I still like DxD but I just can't get into because Issei is too driven with his perversion and it really becomes really annoying. DxD has a good story but is just that Issei is making me less interested in the story. And as for the female characters, well in DxD the only female characters I like are Koneko and Ravel because I like them the most. In Sister New Devil I like all the females characters but I like Kurumi more. I guess it depends on what types of harem anime you like most and how can you tolerate it.

Guess you can't handle the realism, that's how normal people are.
It wasn't repetitive, atleast make a sound argument.
Better than DxD.

Reading some of your posts I imagine you living the good life in your basement, together with your hug pillows.

On-topic: another shitfest getting adapted. Nothing new really, eh, Japan?

It's funny, I only found out about this show when I saw a PS3 theme about it, so I looked into it, Dropped the First Ep, then saw that Season 2 was coming and watch the whole thing and you know what..I enjoyed it..
It's dumb/hot so what's not to like..Heck, I'm even buying Jap Blu-ray to show support (first show so far not the last)

Lol what. good for you fapper

Second Season = Proves Ecchi runs the industry

This was straight up porn with a plot level bad. I can't even. If you're going to even try to defend this, at least be upfront about it and don't pretend it's because the show was good.

EP1 & EP2 uncencored for season 1 are "in existence" now, EP1 even subbed already. The differences between TV version and BD version are quite great.

I hope season 2 will have overall better production values in the TV version already.

It was one of the better harems of this past season, so I can happily take this.

Mar 28, 2015 4:38 AM by NanoKaleU6

Well, that's awesome, we'll get to see more censored boobs @_@ I love censored boobs.

This garbage show should not have gotten a season 2.

Oh please, I watch ecchi and I can't even praise Shinmai. You want a sound argument, here's one.

For starters, Basara's episode 1 weapon of choice can be coincidentally likened to a rip-off of Issei's Boosted Gear. You can't deny the similarity is uncanny. All it needs is a legendary being sealed inside and the ability to shout BOOSTO!.

Same author, so there goes most of the dxd stuff
http://myanimelist.net/anime/13161/Hagure_Yuusha_no_Estetica

but it is inspired by DXD just like every other series is by something, but does that make it automatically better than shinmai? no.

Gary29 said:
If doing extremely sexual things to (note: not with) girls he still considers to be like his sisters makes Basara superior to Issei, then yes, he's more of a god than Tatsuya.

There's a reason he does that but whatever, guess he should just let them die then right?

Gary29 said:
Shinmai isn't ecchi, it's softcore hentai lol. The fanservice is absolutely tasteless as well. And where's our reasoning for onii-chan Basara's imoutos to fall for him? You wouldn't see a lack of reasoning between Issei and Rias.

And there's a reason for Issei to fall for Rias? XD
Please, they find each other attractive and spend a lot of time with each other like everybody n the real world does aka realism.


Gary29 said:
DxD's girls are far more useful than anyone, male or female, that Shinmai could produce. Xenovia's Durandal would annihilate all of them easily.

Kurumi alone > those weaklings
Mio kills them with her mere touch.

Gary29 said:
And you wanna talk story? Half the LN plot is fucking his inter-racial harem, the other half is an average story. I defy you to read DxD's light novels, or even compare it to the anime, and tell me it's better. Anime-to-Anime, LN-to-LN, and LN-to-Anime (Shinmai's LN to DxD's anime) DxD is far better in every way, and BorN will prove that beyond doubt.

It's called bonding, something people who are friends and love each other do .

And DXD season 2 was a disappointment, which Shinmai 2nd season won't be.

Gary29 said:
That doesn't even make sense, btw. How is there any sort of realism in Shinmai and how is that any kind of argument against Basara being so damn bland?

You're more than welcome to love this series, and I respect that. But please, don't spout senseless shit like "Shinmai Maou is superior to DxD".

Go out and meet more people then, Basara is a chill dude like most people, don't put Issei as a standard for humanity.

I didn't start it, Newhopes implied that dxd > shinmai.
