It starts with Akeno and Ise on the bed because she wants to lose her virginity. Akeno got herself her own erotic room dimension like Irina since the Fallen Angels became competitive towards the Angels creation. Akeno strips and lures Ise's hand to her breast. She tries to kiss Ise but gets interrupted by Rias. Though that doesn't stop her from doing french kiss with Ise despite Rias's dismay. Rias also strips naked and french kisses Ise. Ise has both his hands on each of their breast. Akeno wants to take Ise's virginity but Rias says it belongs to her. Even Ise starts to make up his mind and as he tries to get laid.....he obviously gets interrupted once again. Ravel appeared

After Ravel the Church trio appears. They heard that Akeno got her hands on this room and Asia started saying that perhaps each of the girl will get their own room in future. Rias asks Ravel what she wanted to talk about. It's about the International Rating Game. Rias and Akeno leaves the room to go to Underworld. They both kiss Ise on the cheek before leaving.

3.New team members for Rias group are the following people. Valerie, and Lint Sellzan (a girl who looks like Freed and has the Longinus 'Incinerate Anthem". This Longinus goes to different people on its own). There is also a mysterious character called "Mister Black" but nothing is revealed about him.
4.There are 1400+ teams participating in the tournament. The top 16 team will be going to the final rounds. The team will have a starting point of 1500 points and by defeating a team you gain points and lose points if you lose the match. You will gain more points by defeating a team who has much more points than your team.

>Life.5 spoilers

1.Ise's group have done 3 matches already. He has won all 3 of them but he has bad reviews among critics and viewers since he struggled against weaker teams. The other group has a positive review instead.
2.Ravel says that number of wins doesn't necessary mean going to finals. You can still go to final with minimal matches if you do it right. Though Ise prefers to accept all challenges which makes Xenovia and Bova strongly agree with him.
3.Ise's Queen instead has good reviews. Others still don't know about her identity. She approached Ise on April to see his calibre as a King. It's said that she is a Devil.
4.Valerie is taking Asia's position as a healer of Rias team. She can use her Holy Grail to heal others thought not as strong as Asia's. Lint and Mister Black are also a mystery and has proven to be very powerful.
5.A new trio is formed. Ophis, Lilith, and Kunou. The loli trios. Ophis can shapeshift to her old form. Lilith is being called Leece.
6.Ise's opponent for his fourth match is decided. It's team Lightning and their King is Barakiel. Their Queen is Armaros (one of the FA leaders).
7.Ise meets Barakiel downstairs. Awkward atmosphere. He asks Akeno who she will be cheering for but she immediately chooses Ise and hugs him. This made Barakiel run in tears. Though Akeno is actually saddened by this and she's jealous of Rias's relationship with Ise.
>>
>>144438020
>The Rating Game.

1.On the day of the RG match. One of the commentators is Rias's dad.
2.The Rating Game match they will be doing is called "Objects". You can win either by defeating the opponent King or destroying more "Objects" than the other team. There are 12 objects in total.
3.Basically Ise's team gets cornered. But at the end Ise's team wins with overwhelming strength by Ise using DxD mode and annihilating half of the map. He also defeats Barakiel and confesses his love for Akeno by taking her as his wife in the future (similar to the confession to Rias during RG match in v10).

After the match Ise alone was called by Ajuka.
He talks to Azazel, Sirzechs, and Serafall through video message. They are still alive and kicking.
This is still kept a secret from the others obviously they would need supplies occasionally since they are fighting Trihexa.
Anyways Ajuka, Sirzechs, and Azazel had been planning to make a new group called ExE (also would be known as Exe) which will be like a FBI or MI6 of the DxD world.
This team will be actually be formed in few years and they want Ise to become a member of that team and eventually the leader of it.
They ask him to find strong allies in the future to make them join etc.

Also since the confession Akeno has been sticking beside Ise. She argues with Rias on who will take Ise's first time or who will bear his children first.

Two days later. The match up has been decided. But the two matchup which is being a hot topics are....

1.Team Ise vs Team Dulio
2.Team Sairaorg vs Team Cao Cao.

>The End.
>Also DX3 will be coming out next and Ishibumi has stated that DxD final story won't go past volume 30.
>>
>>144438045
>Other info

Azazel Cup: There's a new rule for the upcoming Rating Game tournament. Since non-Devils will also join (such as Gods), a King can register anyone as their peerage as long as they don't register their name for another group. So Irina will join Ise's group for the tournament. The tournament will offically be called the "Azazel Cup" (Azazel must be honored). In this tournament even those who had been used 2 Evil Pieces will be treated as 1 piece unless you are a God which will automatically be counted as 2 pieces or 8 Pawn pieces. Pawn pieces has more strict rules in order to prevent getting many God-level members in 1 team.

Ajuka and Shiva wont appear in the tournament since they were the organizers of this world tournament. The winner will get any wish they ask fulfilled if it doesn't bring chaos to the world. Though Indra is planning to win the tournament so he can have War against Shiva. There's a Prince of the Asura Gods who is an ally of Shiva and is eager to have Ise join their force since he desperately wants to take down Indra for killing his dad. He's participating in the tournament.
So we wont be seeing Shiva versus Indra or Shiva versus Ise in the tournament if it goes smoothly. Though Ishibumi did say something will happen during the tournament in the next volume.

The madman is on a roll.
>>
>>144438146
I wonder if he's going to be able to keep this up for the whole last arc.
>>
>>144438171
I sure hope so. By not dragging on the arc he can stay focused on what's about to happen. If he needs to take a break once he's finished, then so be it.
>>
>>144438246
I doubt he'd take a break he's probably been developing an ExE universe behind the scene.
He's dropping too many hints about it.
>>
>>144438325
I mean he may need to take a breather after this arc. Ishibumi is no Kamachi, he actually writes at a pretty normal pace so he'll take at least a few months off I'd assume.
>>
Why a tournament arc?
>>
>>144438659
I mean why not? Everyone has been waiting for Issei to get his own peerage and this is perfect to show him developing as a king.

We'll probably know in the next month or so if an OVA is being bundled with Dx.3.
>>
>>144439760
If an OVA is bundled with Dx.3 that increases the chance for a S4 correct?
>>
>>144439829
It might not really have any correlation. Volume 23 is if you ask me the very last chance for it to be announced. If not then, the anime is official kill.
>>
>>144439934
I'd argue as long as TNK doesn't produce anything else chances are still good.
>>
>>144439969
With that mindset, S4 will be announced when Index 3 is.
>>
in the end,that vampire girl wanna join issei team
pawn position?

>>144438967

I want to see her and Lilith dock those tits.
>>
>>144440195
Yeah, Elmenhilde is most likely going to join Issei as a pawn.
Wondering what her role in the peerage is going to be though.
>>
>>144439934

I'm pretty sure it's kill. Next season would go through shitty volumes. DxD novels were kind of dying until Ophis happened. That + anime advert brought them back to life.

But if they continued the anime it's either rushing through shit or like 2 seasons of shit. I doubt they want to do that. Sales would only keep dropping.

Maybe a movie or OVA could happen, but I'm not expecting more TV seasons.
>>

What? Volume 10 is one of the most loved volumes in the series.
>>
>>144440471
Nigga what? 9-12 were fucking awesome.

>>144440549
>>144440672

Sales disagree.

And next season would stop before Ophis arc unless they want to rush shit like crazy.
>>
>>144440736

Are you telling me that 11 or onward have more all time sales than anything before it?
>>
>>144440791

>>
>>144441031

>>
>>144441062

First volumes sold much better. It was dropping fast. Then Ophis and anime saved it.

>>
>>144441103

They should get a spin-off.

And is the loli trio entering the tournament?
>>
>>144441100
But that's how it is for every single light novel. The first volumes sell the best because people pick them up to see if the series is worth investing in. Obviously not everyone likes it. Then the anime came out around volume 11 and made the series a massive hit. Without the anime the series would be done by now.
>>
>>144441148
Ophis, Lilith and Kunou are the designated Oppai Dragon cheering squad.
>>
>>144441161
>But that's how it is for every single light novel

Nope. Not at all. DxD anime was a completely unexpected success. It sold around 10k while average LN adaptations do 2-3k.

That's because early volumes were great comedy. But then series starts to become serious with more shonenshit and dudes. This is the main reason why BorN disappointed so many people and reduced chances for next season to almost 0.
>>
>>144441233
>team that could solo all other teams while blindfolded
>cheerleaders
>>
>>144441253
You're completely ignoring the trend of how LN's sell when an adaptation is airing.
>>
>>144441317

You mean how many of them get 0 boost in sales? Re Zero or Overlord are exceptions, not the rule.
>>
>>144441253
>This is the main reason why BorN disappointed so many people
Talking out of your ass the main reason BorN sold badly was because they went full retard and didn't follow the damned books.
>>
>>144441339
Why don't you go take a look at the sales for Shinmai, Konosuba, Bahamut, Grimgar and any other popular LN adaptation that's not SAO or Mahouka. Re:Zero is no exception to the rule at all.
>>
>>144441373

They didn't follow the books for a reason. After New a lot of nips were already complaining that this is not what they want form the series. This is why they tried giving Rias some more action.
>>
>>144441448
>Shinmai, Konosuba, Bahamut, Grimgar

Minor and very short lived boost. DxD got much more attention than them.
>>
>>144441573
Konosuba is the top selling anime of the entire year so far. I don't think that's minor at all. And the anime sales were about the same as DxD's.
>>
>>144441667
>top selling light novel*
>>
>>144441667

Konosuba is the most successful LN adaptation in a long time.

Not even comparable to Shinmai or Grimgar.
>>
>>144441755
But they all got a boost. These anime adaptations often help the series continue past where they would originally end. See: Antimagic.

So yes, anime adaptations do give boosts albeit small sometimes. DxD would've ended with volume 12 probably without the anime with the original end of Ophis dying.

And there's no conclusive evidence that males have any negative effect on the sales of this series. Each volume progressively sells less overall than the last when it comes to LNs, so naturally 9 and 10 were the absolute lowest points of this series because there was no anime, and it was not new.

High School DxD 2012 Winter 10,041
High School DxD New 2013 Summer 9,424
High School DxD BorN 2015 Spring 6,311

BorN didn't sell well because they crammed 4 story arcs (volumes 5,6,7,original) into 12 episodes, which made the series as a whole rushed. Only volume 6 was adapted great. Also many things that people wanted to see were cut or changed such as the Sitri Rating Game. If they cut out the original story arc and just adapted it like the books it would have sold better. Why they changed it I don't know (I still think the author had something to do with it seen as BorN had volume 20 content) but it worked in the authors favour considering all this ExE stuff he is setting up. Now he has options for prequels and sequels after the main story has ended.

Issei got it recently when he became Heavenly Dragon tier? Don't remember exactly.

There's one thing I wished we got this volume. The list of deities that got sealed. Ishibumi has never gone out of his way to particularly detail their names in the first place, so it'd be nice.

He never went out of his way because they never showed up or mattered?

>>144444072
We don't know if the likes of Thor or the other top 10 got sealed. Those people could be crucial in stopping Indra/Shiva.
>>
>>144444202
The old gods specifically got taken out of the picture so the new generation could take over.
Why would he keep gods like Thor around and take away the spotlight of the young ones?

Isn't Thor supposed to be a relatively young god? Odin was still chief so Thor hadn't taken over yet.

Maybe the ExE group is the reason why Issei was so busy in the future. Fucking Ishibumi, ExE is the new "DxD", what with him having multiple meanings for a single term.

I understand that but this doesn't seem the place when it's obvious from the get go they don't have a chance in hell of winning or making it far.

I was talking about the 1400+ other groups as well.
There's actual stackes in this too since Indra winning most likely means a war in some way and definite bad news all around.
This is not the place to wage a war on having less priviliged being able to take part in rating games.
>>
>>144451726
That's why Shiva is trying to get people to stop him beforehand. Which is rather funny, seeing as Indra was trying to do the exact opposite back in volume 12.

Issei really is maturing kind of weird though that it took a new editor for Issei to be able to ask Rias and Akeno to marry him. Could the editor have been worse then we initialy thought?

>>144453133
Possibly. I also get the feeling that he's gonna confess to all the girls this arc. There will probably be a sequel, but I'm sure that he'll give the series a soft end after this arc for those who want to move on.

Seems good for people that would like to just take a break from the series as well or if Ishibumi would just like to do a few short stories after before going to the sequel.

Yeah. I think Strike the Blood recently did that with the latest volume. Mondaiji ended that way too. Hell, Ishibumi may take a year to do one of those side projects he always wanted to do.

What this actually says is that Bina has young sounding voice. Teenage-like.
Nothing about her actual age or appearance.

Wouldn't even surprise me.

Currently only really valuable point is that she is devil. Others are either too vague (her being interested in Issei's growth) or too misleading (young sounding voice) to describe anything.

Kiryuu is never going to have any real importance she's just a regular human. Can you imagine Issei wasting his most valuable Queen piece on her?

>>144456769
It could also be Bennia since we have no info on Sona's team, but I don't see either of them making a proper Queen for Issei if even Ravel isn't.
>>
>>144456876
What if she has one of the missing Longinus? Ajuka said he knew where the person with Innovate Clear was. Maybe it's her.
>>
>>144456898
>Sona's team
She's taking part meaning Bennia is participating in her team.
>>
>>144456927
If she had a sacred gear Rias and company would know about it.
Didn't they have tools or magic to track sacred gear users?
>>
>>144457019
I don't think so. Rias only assumed Issei had one because she noticed Raynare stalking him I thought.
>>
>>144456949
>meaning Bennia is participating in her team.
Peerage rules don't apply to teams here. Bennia could participate with whoever she wanted if Sona approved.
>>
>>144457072
It'd be strange for a knight to be worth a spot as his queen, but it would be in character for her to do something like that. She reminds me of Levi from Trinity Seven in that sense.
>>
>>144457072
Why would Sona give up her knight for the tournament though? She's going to need her whole team to get anywhere.

The girl is the knight that Sona originally wanted. Fucking screencap this.

Why did he have to propose twice I was also under the assumption that they were already engaged and isse didn't realise it

Yeah, they already were. Everyone just entertained the thought basically. Doesn't that mean Akeno also stole Issei's first real proposal? Rias just can't catch a break.

>Akeno is now the main heroine
The fuck you doing Ishi. He's just gone full troll at this point.

Pretty sure the first time in Life.2 is where Issei actually proposes and in Life.3 the translator just says he did as a reminder and then tells his buddies about said proposal

That anon meant about how they've been engaged since vol 8 I think.

It wasn't written while Ishibumi had his pants down for one and the world is generally interesting. Characters are hit and miss and don't really have much depth though since they purely exist to fellate Issei but they're likable enough to forget about that.

He can't be. see >>144443019
>>
>>144482772
He doesn't have a team of his own which means he has to join one and nothing has pointed to him having joined any other team.
The only way Rias would have a chance against Issei is with Crom in her team it just makes the most sense.

So I been digging into "too deep for you?" levels of detail to understand what is going on behind the mask. So I looked up what the clothing attire, I.E. mostly the mask meant. Chinese which had some important cultural meaning of family values.Celtic masks which had no meaning (never existed culturally historic), but the symbol of the Red Dragon meant nearly the same. So I dug deeper and it gave me Saint George and the Dragon. A story that had similar figures.

TL;DR King tames dragon by using princess's girdle, (uh precious purity?) then brings it to town to wager citizens to convert to Christianity (Eh~), kills dragon with Ascalon, makes church out of Dragon Bones that has healing spring. BUT WAIT, did I mention that this took place in [Libya]? Technically Dragon killed is not from Wales (aka Boosto!).

Break it down DXD terms.
Dragon is "poisonous" woman, dude meets girl who is nun, Dragon sees dude, awkward bench conversation. Gets killed in a church all for the power of healing.
So in the end, Ise is pretty much Saint George and he, brought back the Dragon, and has pretty much the only Church related members on his team + Magical Bird.

The reason of Queen is it being valued as 8 points, the same way Ise was revived once. Someone we all probably miss has returned even though It was probably ~Dio~ all along.The absolute madman, he actually did it.

It was said she was a devil meaning Issei would've had to use his priceless Queen piece on her.
>>
>>144484228
Even if it's Raynare is she that useful?
Issei has Xenovia and Irina so light spear is not needed that much
Rossweisse will cover utility magic such as illusion, traps or scouting
Unless she gets a major powerup Raynare would be a bait at best
>>
>>144484611
Yeah, thats my major doubt as to if Raynare would actually be his Queen or not
Technically Raynare is slightly below a normal High-class Devil but compared to everyone in his team is just a pile of ashes

>>
>>144485067

You mean fallen angel and i'm just assuming that she was slightly below high-class due to only being afraid of Issei when realizing his power increased until that point and could've killed him if she was calm
Though these are just my assumptions

Ise was also bottom feeder level, even though he had 8 pawns in him.

What he is now is not what he was back then.This could also mean anything could happen. We don't even have the battle play by plays yet.

The Vamp Girl is probably going to be the Rook as it seems Ise's Rooks are apparently offensive magic casters.

Issei's body is composed of Great Red''s flesh, actually.
>>
If she is a hybrid then she could possess one of the final two Longinus, Innovate Clear and Telos Karma. Personally, I think it would most likely be Innovate Clear as it is based on the "tree of the knowledge of good and evil" or just the tree of life from Genesis. Having a descendant of Lucifer possessing the tree that caused the fall is just too perfect for any writer to resist. This is further backed up by the name "Bina" meaning intelligence or understanding in Hebrew. So at the very least it appears that Bina possesses Innovate Clear based on her name.

Post i found on AS i found interesting on a theory for Issei's Queen.

>>144466524

Rias is the primary wife and the other girls are secondary wives or concubines. After all Issei's name in the future is Issei Hyoudou Gremory.
>>
>>144489876
Rias didn't take Issei's name though right?
>when this is why you don't feel bad about her being a cuckquean anymore
>>
>>144489993
She could once Milicas takes over the house though.
>>
>>144489993

The name Gremory is more important than Hyoudou in the Underworld so she kept her name and Issei became a Gremory.
>>
>>144484931

This makes sense. Also him hiding his identity is important as being the son of a Maou will drag in politics.
>>
>>144490519
And in 30 years everyone knows Hyoudou.
>>
>>144484931
yfw... he uses the power ranger mask of his father
>>
>>144490616

Doesn't matter. Hyoudou isn't one of the 72 pillars where as Gremory is. No matter how well known he becomes his name will never exceed Gremory unless all the high class devils in the Underworld change their culture, which they won't.
>>
>>144490858
Then the underworld can stay in their obsolete past every faction and race is going to put Issei's name higher then Ria's.
>>
>>144446567
This would explain why they sealed up Loki instead of just straight up killing him.

>>144446567
if this is true how long till bible god comes back?
>>
>>144491045

When Issei marries Rias he will become a Gremory so his future deeds will only strengthen that name. And from the pacing I don't think it will be very long before he is married to Rias.

The other factions won't care that he is a Hyoudou they only care that he's The Sekiryuutei or The Oppai Dragon.
>>
>>144492687
I'm assuming that only applies if they weren't old farts and they were actually killed. God of the Bible was probably old like Odin and used up what was left of his life force to seal 666.
>>
>>144492705
Issei still retains his family name Hyoudou it doesn't just disappear because he marries Rias.
>Also not caring about THE hero's actual name
He's so important he fought of an invasion of another world on his own.
These are his accomplishments nobody will relate them with the name Gremory, but with the name Hyoudou Issei.
>>
>>144492687

I can't really remember much from volume 21 but I think when Gods are defeated their physical forms disappear and they have to regenerate their power through worship before they can take physical form again.

If a God is straight up killed then they are dead for good as is what happened with the God from the Bible. He used most of his power to seal Trihexa but then the Great War happened and he was slain in that war.
>>
>>144493137

I never said his family name disappears I said he will become a Gremory. His name changes to Issei Hyoudou Gremory so his family name Hyoudou will never become more prominent than Gremory as his future deeds will be done as Issei Hyoudou Gremory.

He didn't fight an invasion of another world on his own, he fought with everyone else involved in the war.
>>
>>144493519
>He didn't fight an invasion of another world on his own, he fought with everyone else involved in the war.
Wrong the war was specifically stated to have been won because of Issei's sacrifices.
Without him they would've lost.
>>
>>144493667
And before you ask for proof.

>Zen had a wry smile and said that in reply to the invasion, the whole world cooperated to retain their peace. They fought severe battles many times...... and their father defeated them while paying some sacrifices.

EX summary part one
>>
>>144493667

Issei's sacrifices doesn't mean he soloed the war you muppet. Do you even know the definition of the word war?
>>
>>144493972
Issei having to make sacrifices heavily implies that without him they would've lost.
Meaning he might as well have fought it alone.
>>
>>144494049

We don't know what those sacrifices were. For all we know Issei was a commander and sacrificed the lives of others to achieve victory. We will never know unless the author expands on it.

Also if Issei fought the war alone he would be dead simply due to attrition and exhaustion.
>>
>>144494527
>We don't know what those sacrifices were. For all we know Issei was a commander and sacrificed the lives of others to achieve victory.
C'mon you don't even believe that Issei only sacrifices himself.
Which means he had to pay the price for victory once again.
>>

Hey guys, I just started into the DxD world, I'm almos finishing the anime and now I'm going to novels but there is a few of asks I wanted to ask you guys
does ria still loves issei ?
what exactally is going on with the girl's romantic lifes ?
>>
>>144495098

Everyone pays the price in some form, it's a war not a skirmish. Some pay it more than others. The whole world was in that war not just Issei and to invalidate their participation just because Issei was a very strong being who made some sacrifices is stupid and arrogant. I'll say it again if he was the only combatant then he would be dead, the whole fought in that war not just Issei.

Issei just proposed.

So you actually think Issei was the only one fighting? His kids were trained to fight in that war you know?
>>
>>144496273
Read this again >>144494049
>>
>>144496415

It doesn't imply anything. It just means Issei fought in those battles and won while making some sacrifices.
>>
>>144496670
So you're saying the war could've been won without Issei?
>>
>>144496771

Who knows. The author was too vague when it come to details of the war. The only thing I'm saying is there wasn't only Issei fighting in that war hence why the 'whole world cooperated to retain the peace'.

How do I get my friend to read the LN's instead of sticking to just the anime?
>>
>>144497260
Ask him what he loved and then explain how what he loved is even better in the novel.
Otherwise these should help.

>Find out his favorite girl and explain how she gets more love in the novels
>>
>>144497260
Season 3 should be enough

>Issei becomes Heavenly Dragon tier

Wont work, he hates it when I spoil things even by implying something
>Find out his favorite girl and explain how she gets more love in the novels
Could work, he likes Xenovia and Akeno, and BorN did skip out on the "Akeno goes batshit insane" moment
>>144497501
In case you didnt realize S3 is only "bad" for people that already read the novels, even then, all it does is skip a few stuff or shits the order of events, saying "forget the last 3 episodes exist" is also a solution
>>
>>144497260

You could point out some differences between the LN's and the anime. Differences such as:

Azazel tossing Issei into a Rias Akeno Oppai Sandwich.
Expanded conversation and details with Rias and Issei kiss in his bedroom.
Issei being more bad ass in his fights - example - blowing away a mountain after attaining balance breaker.
Sitri Rating Game.

Then there is stuff that is funny as hell like Fafnir's antics with Asia's panties.etc.

no not yet it's complicated. he is making it happen by being a bad ass in fights & trying to help girls various issues but the Ex novels set 30 years from dxd confirm he gets his harem in the end

I don't understand
I read he was still about to lose his virginity with Rias and Akeno in that volume but he already have children with the girls ? or he gonna make kids with them in the future ?

Wrong. You are right about the kids coming from 30 years in the future but they come back to the light novel timeline, not BorNs, at some point between volume 14 and before volume 20. We know this because Azazel knows of Chichigami and some characters use abilities that they learn much later in the novels, such as Asia summoning Fafnir. The only thing EX mentions about BorN is that it was additional timeline that was created by Loki messing with events.

> Does Rias take them back
Or if he keeps them
>>
>>144513270
When you become a King you will come to a big King piece and register your name/mana then receive 15 chess pieces, whether you were reincarnated by another devil or not doesn't matter since the piece(s) stay with you, without it you will die anyway.
>>
>>144513474

So what about Rias does she get 8 more pawn pieces
>>
>>144513270
He's still a Pawn. The King piece isn't used legally so there's no problem.
>people are gonna use the King piece in this arc
Totally just realized this.
>>
>>144513694
No. Just because he became a King doesn't mean he's not her pawn still.
>>
>>144513721
So that mean that he still is Rias pawn then
>>
>>144513764
So why did people started saying tha mr black was going to be her new pawn
>>
>>144513808
Pawn (8 Pieces) = Mr Black (God-level or an actual God. Still a mystery
>>
>>144513474
What if you reach godhood? Would the pieces still need to be kept to maintain your life or does Divinity surpass that?
>>
>>144513898
The tournament teams have no relation to the actual peerages. I'm hoping Ishibumi will start to focus on Issei's actual peerage once the Shiva-Indra war starts.
>>
>>144513994
There's no godhood when one becomes a devil
>>
I thing mr black dude is going to be her new rock
>>
>>144514026
He is going to surpass godhood hes going to be called the super ultimate oppai eater dragon-kun
>>
>>144514026
Wasn't divinity the exact thing that Ophis sealed because he wasn't ready for it?
>>
>>144514282
Deification. It's what would make him a dragon god. It will never happen to him because he'd stop being a devil at that point. He'll have to find some other way, which is the GR powerup that lets him dragonify himself to such an extent most likely.
>>
>>144513974

I think speculation is that Mr Black is Crom Cruach the strongest Evil Dragon. He has reached Heavenly Dragon level through training so it isn't a surprise if he consumes all 8 pawn spots.
>>
>>144514205
Which means it isn't godhood but someone really strong
>>144514282
Ophis herself isn't god, she was called Dragon God because she's stronger than any dragon but Great Red
As for the seal it's because Issei couldn't handle the full power of Ophis yet
>>
>>144514355
WI'll he achieve a perfect balance and take a third option to become a Devil Dragon God also known as a DxD

Couldn't Bina be that girl who appeared after Sairaorg beat that guy in volume 21? Belphegor or something? I remember there being a Belphegor Maou in the future too.

more importantly why is Xenovia being a fruit ninja here
>>
>>144514470

No idea. What we do know is that in 30 years he has the ability to transform into a 100+ meter long red dragon capable of defeating chief god class beings with a single breath. This is most likely Great Reds power Issei will unlock.
>>
>>144514837
I'm thinking it might just be more of an augmented upgrade. He can already dragonify his body, that in particular might have just been him being better at doing it. Although we don't know until Ishibumi goes more into detail with dragonification.
>>
I have a stupid question

Do you guys think that isse and Great Red will ever combine or merge together not just for a fight but forever
>>
>>144514981
Great Red will job and get killed as soon as their world gets invaded.
>>
>>144515019
Probably not get injured really bad and, and graet red will call for isse to give him more power by combining themselve
>>
>>144515221
Ishibumi said them combining was a one time deal and that he didn't want to do it again.

>>
>>144515269
In the Ex isse is a huge dragon almost the same size as great red
>>
>>144515269
He also said Chichigami is a one time deal
>>
>>144515580
He said they wouldn't go to the other world in high school DxD.
>>
>>144515580
>>144515702
what if it happens in dxd2
the invasion from ather worlds
great red getting injured and GR combining with isse
And goinf to other worlds
>>
>>144516112
And the war between shiba and indra
>>
I hope the DxD sequel goes full on battle shounen/mecha if Issei isn't going to be the protagonist
>>
>>144516343
He need to be the protagonist otherwise theres is no point on reading it...

If he does a sequel it should be the war of shiba and indra in the first arc...
the second arc should be isse getting married with all the girls...
and third should be about the other worlds

who still needs armor?
>>
>>144518254

More like a chastity belt than armour. Increases cock blocking by 100%. Maybe Ravel borrowed it for volume 22.
>>
>>144507851
It cant be Asia every time.
>>
Is Issei not allowed to share his Scale Mail with his team, like he did with Rias in 20? Wouldn't that be an easy way to take out enemy teams?
