The thing is they always announce a new season with a volume. And this volume fit the timing of an announcement. I'd say if we don't hear anything by vol 23, the dream is done.

You're probably right.
Although i really doubt S4 is not going to happen.
Nippon still supported it even thought they didn't like it and without DxD TNK is just a lost cause and might as well close up.
So they'll probably push for S4.

It'll probably have something to do with Shiva / Indra.

>>
>>138793568
Unless he saves them for the sequel. We still got the Malebranche/Euclid left.
>>
>>138793644
Except we know nothing of them so would they be strong enough? And Euclid proved to be grunt tier even with an artificial BB armor.

Ishibumi hasn't really said anything about Malebranche right?
>>
>>138793923
He said they're in the same prison Euclid is in, and they're all Maou level. Maou level is nothing to scoff at.
>>
>>138793969
Euclid is Maou level so that's not saying much.
>>
>>138794051
Euclid was only on par with Grayfia I thought they said. For example, Serafall is probably stronger than half the Gods out there. Ishibumi wouldn't go out of his way to give them such exposition if they weren't gonna be relevant.

画面转到巴尔领地。支取和巴尔眷属正在平息叛乱。匙为了保护巴尔的塞拉奥格的弟弟禁手化对阵这次叛乱的主谋——Rating Game的第三位——亚巴顿·彼得泽。他为了把群众不满的矛头转向大王家(因为他持有王的棋子)打算杀了大王家现任当家和上任大家以博取群众的认同。他企图策反匙帮助自己却被拒绝。俩人只好开战。亚巴顿的能力是“穴”(塞拉奥格的女王和他能力一样),匙的攻击全都打不中,正当万念俱灰的时候,塞拉奥格冲了出来,并与彼得泽开始了战斗。远程的匙都打不中,更不用说近战的塞拉奥格。见到浑身是伤的哥哥,塞拉奥格的弟弟向塞拉奥格吐露心声“明明我恨着你,处处与你作对,为什么还你还过来救我”塞拉奥格答道“因为我从你手中抢走了当主的继承权。我要承担起所有人,包括你在内。”弟弟想起了儿时和塞拉奥格的种种。最重兄弟两人化解了心结。塞拉奥格为了保护弟弟使用了“霸兽”。金色的铠甲变成了金色与紫色相间的铠甲(紫色是巴尔家的代表色)——”狮子王的紫金钢皮·霸兽式“最终配合着匙成功击败了亚巴顿。
>>
>>138794151
On par with Grayfia who's Maou-class.

All i remember Ishibumi doing is just mentioning they were together with Euclid. They'll most likely be minor villains in the last arc but seeing them as the main antagonists i just can't without more information on them.

>>138794275
Completely forgot about that the mythical world was revealed to humanity.
That is going to have consequences especially with the "main" leaders locked up in a "space" somewhere.

Sairaorg vs his brother?

If I'm deciphering these moonrunes correctly on baidu, it sounds like 666 destroyed the Grigori headquarters, and a good portion of Heaven and the Underworld before teleporting to the Norse area and began to attack the world tree there.

Nah Issei will finally appreciate small tits thats why he have no acces to big boobs anymore. He got himself into the corner like before when he was only thinking about groping tits then Azazel showed him the way with sucking if i remember right or was that some old man from his past.
Anyway Issei will gain some new power that include small breast because in my opinion it was painful and unfair e. g. for Koneko knowing she don't have full Issei attention cuz of her itty bitty kitty titties. .
I know Isseis fetish is big boobs but cmon you have to stay open for everything if you want the full pervert powers do you agree? So after gaining new abilities Chichigami will heal his curse.

>>138800153
Koneko grows up into a titty monster like her sister though. All of them do.

Code zero is starting to post summaries:

Encounter:
It was seven years ago when Vali was taken in by Azazel.
Vali had been abused by his dad and Rizevim.
Vali didt retaliate the abuse because if he did his dad would have abused his mother instead.
Vali's dad thought he was special because he was a "Lucifer". But Vali was even more"special".
Hence the abuse to make himself feel better.
The one who told about Vali to Shemhaza to help him was the servant of Vali's dad.
He was most likely killed in doing so.
Vali was stronger than most SG users after a year passed since he was taken in.
He vowed to be stronger than original Lucifer, Rizevim, and Great Red.
He was also looking forward to his future rival: Sekiryuutei.

Khaos Disaster:
5 days passed since Trihexa revived.
The top brass of different factions are sitting to watch the horror of Trihexa and discuss the counter measure.
It destroyed the main institute belonging to Grigori and the Heaven (from First Heaven to Sixth Heaven).
Many Angels died in a process (Even ones who had been fighting since long time ago).
Three Seraphs were critically wounded. Most of the Four Great Seraphs were also wounded.
Rafael lost one of his leg. Uriel lost an eye and arm. Even Michael was wounded.
Even two of the leaders of the fallen angel was wounded badly.
The situation was even worse because of the fake Sekiryuuteis and Evil Dragons.
The ones leading them were Apohis and Aji Dahaka.
On the third day of its release it went to Norse world.
Many Gods and ultimate class Devils were dispatched to fight the enemies. Gods mainly from Asura Gods.
On the fifth day Trihexa and co, teleported elsewhere so it couldnt completly destroy Norse world.
Sirzechs who wasnt present in the discussion arrives and reveals the info about Rizevim and Trihexa to the public.
Then that vampire girl (Elmehilde or whatver she was called) arrives and passes on a info about the secret of Holy Grail which Rizevim didnt know about to Azazel.
Sirzechs and Azazel talks about a certain things like a certain Rating Match they hoped to see but possibly cant now because of a certain thing they must do (death flag?)

The war is on an even larger scale than the war between Angels, Fallen Angels and Devils. It's the greatest disaster in the history of their world. Also, as many predicted after the side story from last year, Elmenhilde has fallen for Issei at this point, as see when she blushes and freaks out when Azazel tells her to check on him.

You know what is even more confusing? We had the DX volumes which he/she didn't even have to draw for those volumes since they already had illustrations when the side stories came out.

On to some actual spoilers, Ajuka is the only Maou who doesn't go into the space to fight 666.

Azazel said you can break Issei's powerups down like this:
BxB = Balance Breaker
CxC = Cardinal Crimson
DxD = Diabolos Dragon

Issei wonders if AxA and ExE are possible.

And the so-called other world is a place where the species known as E×E (mechanical organism) and the spirits are at war with each other (according to Azi Dahaka). And both sides have a certain God that rules them. Maybe ExE is above Great Red then?

Ex isn't important to the main story my ass, Ishibumi.

Ophis does not die.
She does not merge with Lilith.
Lilith survives.


No regular characters die. But.....
Leaders of many factions seals themselves with Trihexa to stop the world from being destroyed
So pretty much...
Sirzechs and his peerage (minus Grayphia)
Serafall and her peerage (minus her Queen)
Falbium and his peerage (minus his Queen)
Azazel
Michael and his brave saints (minus Irina)
Rafeal and his brave sainst (minus his Ace)
Uriel and his brave Saints (minus his Ace)
From the Norse faction it was Odin and 6 other Gods
From the Greek faction it was Zeus and 10 other Gods
From the Hindu faction it was Brahma, Vishnu and 7 other Gods.


There's a fair chance that they will never come back.
>>
>>138808610

>>138808610
So Dulio is still around right? Seems like every faction sent all but one leader, and all the leaders they sent took all of their subordinates minus their right hand man. I'd really love to see the hierarchy of heaven and the demon world after this.

I stopped paying attention to this series awhile ago but what happened to Great Red?

Jesus christ, the bible god must have been a freaking monster to be able to take on 666 alone.

>>138809109
Yeah, they stopped it before it fought him it seems. It's implied something happens to Great Red in the future by EX but we don't know what yet.

>>138809093
I thought Dulio was the only joker, not specifically one of Michael's brave saints. Maybe I'm not remembering correctly but based on the way it's phrased I didn't think it included Dulio, we'll have to wait for more spoilers or the translation I guess.
>>
>>138809144
Not at all. It was stated multiple times and implied that he was not strong, rather he was good with seals and such things along with creation. It's like Cao Cao. He's not "strong" but hax abilities and speed.

Ise was sent to the hospital in the Lilith, the capaital city of Underworld (Devil's side).
Everyone was worried about him since all of his organs except his heart stopped functioning.
So Azazel made this crazy theory to cure him and it worked.
Azazel made the doctors collect breast milk from mummies and collected so much that it filled a tub.
By miking those milks with several Phoenix Tears, Ise went inside and recovered.
Everyone was so happy but Ise's parents were embarrassed that their son had to recover in such a way.
Even Kiba and the doctors were astonished.
When Ise woke up he changed and so did his world.....
That's because.....he couldnt say the word "breasts" in any form nor can he even see them due to the blurrs.
The only breast without a blur was Koneko's lol.
When Rias hugged him it brought great pain to his body. When he thinks about breasts it brought great pain to his body.
And when the Oppai Dragon song (with additional improved lyrics lol) made him cough blood. So the song pretty much became a toxic poison for Ise.
>>
Ise wakes up two hours after that.
Azazel tells him he shouldnt use the DxD power anymore or it would either kill him or break him.
This is the part where he talks about BxB, CxC, and DxD I mentioned before.
Azazel apolgies to Ise's parents but they are happy that Azazel trained him to become a man.
Azazel then leaves the room with Rias, Akeno, Gasper, Rossweisse, and Kiba.
They meet Slash Dog's group. Akeno reunites with her cousin Suzaku who is the Head of the Himejima clan. She's in her twenties.
Valerie (the girl with Holy Grail) is also there.
Slash Dog and co will be fighting in the frontline along with them.
Then Vali and his team arrives. The final Longinus possesor who belongs to Slash Dog's group hugs Vali.
Vali blushed in front of everyone for the first time so it shocked the Gremory group. Though Slash Dog team and Vali team were smirking seeing it.
Her name is Lavinia. The possessor of Absolute Demise. She's a blonde hair blue eyes beauty in her mid twenties.
She is a magician who belongs to Mephisto's organisation and is her secretary.
Azazel talks about a plan to stop Trihexa's movement by retrieving Valerie's Holy Grail.
By combing the Holy Grail with the Holy Cross and another holy relic given to them by Elmenhilde.
>>
>>138810602
>your love and favorite becomes toxic to your body
Truly a pain worse than death
>>
Then a man approaches them to tell them that Trihexa had made its movement once again.
But this time it split in 6 destinations. Trihexa has 7 heads and thats the number of body it could split into.
4 of them went to attack another mythology. And 2 of them went to attack the human world. The two locations being attacked in the human world are Europe and sea of Japan.
The two Trihexa in the human world is accompanied by Azi Dahaka and Apohis resepctively (also by evil dragons + fake sekiryuutei).
Slash Dog got an information that Apohis who is with the Trihexa in Japan has the Holy Grail which the DxD must retrieve.
But they still split into two groups. One group would consist of most of DxD forces + other forces. They would be fighting the enemy force in Japan.
The other group consists of Vali teamd + Slash team would be heading to Europe to counter the enemy force (+ forces of other mytholgy).
Rias asks about where Sona and Sairaorg are. They find out that they are fending of the rebellions at the Bael territory.


Vali will also receive a new powerup related to his lucifer blood. Something like becoming the "True Lucifer".
>>
>>138810641
How old is Vali? Because god damn, he has great taste in older women. Probably has a nice ass as well
>>
>>138810775

You know if they're trapped with 666, it will probably slaughter them within an hour tops, right? Great Red, Ophis, Lilith and Shiva all stayed behind. The only ones who could even damage it basically.

More spoilers.

It also talked about the World Rating Game tournament. And Vali telling Ise that he wants to fight Ise's team (not the Gremory group led by Rias but Ise's own team) as his rival. And Vali suggested that Ise shouldnt limit his view on making his team with just Evil Pieces and that he could form a group outside it like Vali's team. Well, the very few remaining top brass suggested to promote Ise to a High class Devil. So we will most likely find out about Ise's potential class change in volume 22.


What else was there......
Hmm, I guess there was four major battles in this volume.
Battle 1: Sairaorg & Saji VS The 3rd Ranking Devil in RG (whose from Abaddon, the same clan Sairaorg's Queen comes from). Sairaorg unleashes Breakdown the Beast like most people predicted.

Battle 2: Vali vs Azi Dahaka.
Azi Dahaka has reached the same power level as that of Two Heavenly Dragons just like Apohis and Crom Cruach. Vali becomes a True Lucifer where his armour becomes silver + black due to Ophis's help (just like the time with Ise in volume 20). He gains tweleve wings of Lucifer in that form. It was a close match due to time restriction but Vali manages to defeat Azi Dahaka. Vali uses his own version of Longinus Smasher and Albion's lost technqiue (a poison technique which could kill anyone apart from Ophis, GR, and Ddraig).
>>
Batlle 3: Ise vs Apophis.
Ise initially tried to fight him without using his new form. Though his CxC wasnt strong enough to take Apohis. So he changes into DxD fairly quickly and defeats it by using his own version of Longinus Smasher.

Battle 4: Ise & Sairaorg vs Trihexa Core.
So the core of Trihexa appeared right in front of Ise after he defeated Apophis. Sirzechs came to help. Sirzechs shows his true form and the two of them fights Trihexa. They were doing pretty well. Ise also used Ddraig's lost technqiue which is an absolute flamethrower which can turn other beings to ashes (except Ophis, GR, and Albion).
Trihexa's core turned into ash but revives without even a slightest damage. Then Ise's DxD form dissapears. But the fight stops there since Sirzechs calls his whole peerage to seal Trihexa (while other leaders seals Trihexa's other body). Sirzechs makes Grayfia fall to the ground since he doesnt want to get her involved. It was quite sad and he couldnt hug her because he was in his true form. So leaving Ise and Grayfia behind Sirzechs, his peerage, and Trihexa is sealed into another dimension (which isnt the dimensional gap).
>>
>all of the ruling figures are gone

>>
>>138821283
King pieces aren't given out though and Ajuka is collecting them to destroy them if i remember correctly?
But with Issei you just don't know what the hell could happen so myeah.

So issei is most likely going to get a peerage + a huge following of loyal people that get shit done.

Issei's responsibilities just keep piling up. It makes sense now why he doesn't have any time for his kids.
Him and his group are going to have to keep the underworld running.
>>
i didn't keep up with DxD after all that bullshit with vampires. There was a timeskip? Why Ophis is grown now and did Isei lost his powers and love to oppai?
>>
>>138822210
No timeskip yet but one might be coming.
>>
>>138822210
>Was there a timeskip?
nope, just shit going down.
>Why is Ophis all grown up?
We don't know.
>Did Issei lose his powers and his love for Oppai?
He seems to have temporarely have lost his powers related to breasts and his love for them.
Rias tried hugging him and it hurt him.
So breasts are like poison to him now.
Don't worry it'll be fixed in time probably.
>>
Ishibumi just basically confirmed a sequel.

Regarding the ExE world. In the afterword Ishibumi said Highschool DxD wont cover that part. So most likely in his new series in the future. Rizevim already told about the existence of ther world to ExE world and Ajuka predicts that ExE would probably contact them (whether its invasion or not) in 30 years.

This basically confirms that the next/final arc of "High School" DxD will be centered around Hindu, Malebranche and this world rating game.

That leaves Issei's future as a high class devil and perhaps the early stage of the enemies from another world for College DxD and the actual big bad guys from there that are stronger than Great Red for an actual EX series if he so chooses to do one.

Azi Dahaka has reached the same power level as that of Two Heavenly Dragons just like Apohis and Crom Cruach.

The 2 Heavenly Dragons were said to be planet buster confirmed by Ddraig himself.

Meaning both Issei and Vali are now on that level too since they're fighting them.

>>
>>138823847
Ishibumi is too lazy to write a space battle.
>>
>>138823847
This post is really dumb, that makes no sense in multiple ways. There's no way any of them could force 666 off planet like that, if there was it wouldn't be such a big problem. And even if someone could, why land on/destroy a nearby planet instead of just launching him into space/the sun?
>>
>>138824060
That could work too (launching it to the sun would be a confirmed FTL feat), or have the main cast dodge 666 beam which destroyed Mars on its way when they doing air battles.
My point is there are plenty of ways to show clear FTL + planet buster feats but Ishibumi hasn't done that, all he did is hype and it doesn't really convince me that these guys are that strong.

That would also make Cao Cao an enemy again too, wouldn't it? He's Indra's vanguard now. Not to mention we might see other Indra servants that might be stronger than Cao Cao.

>>
>>138827250
Ishibumi tricked us with word play. He said DxD mode would be the last form in High School DxD. That doesn't mean he won't get new moves/abilities and that means he definitely will get a new form in the sequel.

I foresee Shiva getting in there too possibly because of getting interested in Issei and how far he can be pushed.

>>138827412
Ishibumi is a sneaky fuck like that.
Issei has already unlocked multiple new ones this volume alone!

>>138827435
i can only imagine how happy Issei is about finally getting a milf!

If it were that easy, they should have done so a long time ago

>>138827412
It makes the battle cheap as the mc getting more and more powerup for his problems, then again it's useless against 666 so there's that
>>
>>138827576
Yeah, this world rating game seems to be the starting plot for the sequel, with ExE as the background plot.

I also hope 666 gets involved again later on in the series. Maybe the ExE leader whatever his name was unseals 666 and all hell breaks loose again someday.
>>
>>138827695
666 is sealed together with all the leaders.
no clue what that means or what the hell is gonna happen with that. But it was said they'll be fighting it for the next thousand years or whatever.

You're probably right about the world rating game and ExE being for the Sequel.
And Ishibumi said EX wasn't important this fuck keeps being sneaky deaky!

Really looking forward to Issei's adventures and gathering his peerage if we get to that.

I can't even imagine what kind of people he's going to gather. But he's probably going to have people throwing themselves at him to become the Oppai Dragons servant.
>>
>>138827987
It's even funnier because he said in a blog post today that EX wasn't important to the main story again. I assume this might be something lost in translation, and means something along the lines of "it's not important because I'll explain it in further detail someday".

Serafalls route was locked, but Gabriel,Grayfia,Elmenhilde and Ophis are now wide open.

Elmenhilde is probably going to be living with Issei Vol 22.
Grayfia and Milicas might move in with Issei because of "grief" opening up opportunities.
Gabriel is going to take Michael's place but aside from that i can't see opportunities for her to spend time with Issei.

>>138829332
Serafall truly seems permanently locked. Don't see why Ishibumi would do this there was no reason to do so.

None of Issei's girls were in a relationship nor cared about other men.

Kiyome Abe was "engaged" though and Isabella and Mira both Raiser's servants are huge fans of Issei. So take that as you will.

Eh... not really, wasnt she pushing Rias to fuck issei as hard as Venelana was? she would probably try to enforce the pecking order and for issei and the girls to behave in public (which Ravel is already kinda doing), but i doubt she would straight up cockblock.

Gabriel is the only one that ever made sense, and thats coming from a Azazel/Gabriel shipper, Grayfia was always the older sister, and Serasfall was never even an opcion, she never showed any interest in anything besides magical girls and Sona, and Issei never showed any interest in her either.

Yeah kinda, buts its actually a problem with the highlights, it seems she wanted to draw something like a latex half bra with the cross pasties incorporated to cover the nipples, but the high lights all around the crosses and the half bra just being flat black makes it look like they were photoshoped on top.

They problably didnt get miyama drunk enough on cough medicine before getting her to draw the illustrations.

He literally thinks with his dick(s) anon, but I doubt he would go after Grayfia considering perhaps one day he and Vali would be strong enough to take out 666 so they could rescue the gods and leaders.
>>
>>138847246
Yeah but Grayfia will be attracted by the dragonswag which Issei can't handle
>>
>>138847352
If anything him already having such a large harem is a bigger reason that he wouldn't. Sirzechs has been incredibly nice to him and his family, and treats Issei like a brother, it would be really uncool of him to go after his wife as soon as he leaves.
>>
>>138847584

NO its not like he trying to steal his wife.He just want to help her in this hard time the best way possible and whats better than DxD?

That's even less likely, and even if she did in a moment of grief or whatever I think Issei would talk her out of it. She's going to have way too much shit to do to try and fuck Issei.

Has there been any other harem series that had this much male characters present like DxD?

I'm not gonna claim that I've watched/read all of them, but I've yet to see a series even get close. Probably why it's so popular amongst women.
>>
>>138851434
Probably Index if you count it as a harem.
>>
>>138851536
Index just has a ridiculous amount of characters in general. DxD would probably reach that many if they had an equal amount of volumes.

According to Azazel there are 3 trends for the Balance Breaker.

1. The Crest-side which includes the sub-species, the enhancement, and a evolution of a Balance Breaker. Majority of the people belong in this category.

2. The Abyss-side which requires the possessor to research and know their own SG even further the full aspect and kind of becomes ones with their SG. (such as Vali and Slash Dog).

3. The IX-side which doesn't belong to any of the two group above and is more of a evolution due to a sudden abnormal phenomenon. (Includes people like Gremory and Sitri group SG-users and those around Ise due to his influence)

Though Ise, Gasper, and Saji is a mix of Abyss-side and IX-side.

Asia wins hands down from the little we saw from the kids.
Airi resemblances her dad the closest except for the perversion.
She's the leader, big scary sister,cute like asia and kicks ass like her dad.
Perfection.

Ex is easily the worst Rias really fucked up.
He's a spoiled rotten brat with daddy issues.
Yeah, blame your father who's out saving the world you shit.
