High School DxD BorN Episode Three Thoughts

High School DxD Born

Since the beginning of the third High School DxD season I’ve seen a completely different side to Koneko.

Koneko has always been quiet but she hasn’t been so reserved that she has been lost in her own thoughts. So far I have seen Koneko who has been working too hard on her training and has been constantly losing focus. She has also doubted herself a lot as well. She even came to the conclusion that she is the weakest of Rias’ peerage. I disagree but when someone is lacking confidence to that degree I can see why. It’s all to do with her Nekomata powers which dwell inside her but she chooses not to use them.

She knows that her sister, Kuroka, is a criminal but she doesn’t have the heart to hate her as they are siblings. I think that’s natural and sweet. She’s been smiling a lot in this episode too. That’s certainly a rare sight to see, so I know that she’s happy. It’s no secret that Akeno loathes her Dad for whatever reason and I get the feeling that we will know more about her family’s past, and soon.

I really like Issei’s Balance Breaker Boosted Gear. It’s really cool and looks more like a dragon in appearance. All it took for him to transform was poking both Rias’ nipples. It’s incredibly daft but easy on the eye. Haha. I wonder why Kuroka waited for Issei to poke Rias’ nipples. Surely that would have been the ideal time to attack as both Issei and Rias were vulnerable and defenceless. Haha. Anyway… all’s well that ends well.

I did get a bit excited when Tannin came into the battle. He looked cool battling Son Goku like that. It was quite kickass. I didn’t realise that Tannin was the former Dragon King. I wonder if a current Dragon King exists or if they all became devils like Tannin or Boosted Gears like Ddraig. I enjoyed Issei’s battle with Kuroka too but I think he partly held back as he was aware that she is Koneko’s sister.

So far I like it how the Norse mythology is used in High School DxD. Odin is a character, Loki is a character and references to Valhalla and Ragnorak were used. I wonder if a character named Thor will appear. That would be cool. I’m somewhat familiar with the Norse mythology but I don’t recall Rossweisse, Odin’s bodyguard, being part of that mythology.

Speaking of Rossweisse, I think she is really cute and she looked proper dapper in that suit. So far she has struck me being someone who is serious but sensitive. I was actually going to say that she reminds me of Isuzu Sento from Amagi Brilliant Park, and coincidentally, they both share the same voice actor! How funny is that? =D

I was a bit confused at the beginning of this show when Rias mentioned Gods and Fallen Angels who were representing their own kind and mythologies. However, I think I’m beginning to understand how they are going to be used in this show. I’m sort of hoping that no new characters will be introduced for the time being as it’s a bit challenging to keep up. I know someone called Beezlebub made his appearance but I forgot what he looks like. Haha. =D

Xenovia Eyecatch

Speaking of Norse mythologies has reminded me of something very important- Avengers: Age of Ultron! It’s released 23rd April in the UK. I don’t cope well in large groups so I don’t think I will be going to watch it at the cinema straight away, but I am very keen to see it. I’m most looking forward to the appearance of Scarlett Witch and the kickass fight between Iron Man and Hulk. =D

High School DxD BorN Episode Two Thoughts

High School DxD Born

Boy, that is one biiiiig mansion. Haha.

It was very generous of Lord Gremory to re-build Issei’s home in the manner that he did. I did think that it was probably a tad extreme that he wanted to turn it into a castle, but not so extreme that he was going to give Issei 50 maids. Haha. Not surprisingly, Rias rejected the idea. Perhaps she thinks that Issei is going to pay more attention to the maids than her. That will never happen, but I can understand why Rias would be worried. It’s all in her head though. 😉

Rias’ mum really is an absolute beauty and very classy in her appearance. It’s a bonus that she’s ultra-polite too, especially towards Issei. I actually thought she was going to have red hair like her daughter but it’s apparent that her hair is auburn. Despite the hair colour you can tell she is Rias’ mum. It looks like she certainly approves of Issei being her future son-in-law, judging by the things she said.  I really do hope we see more of her.

It was amusing how quickly Rias told Issei that her Mum was unavailable. Haha. Before she didn’t seem so bothered about Issei wanting a harem or getting some attention from Asia but now it seems like she’s more cautious about which ladies flirt with him, even her own Mum. I really can’t see her own Mum flirting with Issei. I can see her flattering and teasing him but not flirting, she wouldn’t want to upset her own daughter. Rias is especially cautious with Akeno when it comes to ladies flirting with Issei. She looks very dashing with her hair tied back.

It’s really cool that Issei’s personal training partner is Tannin. He should get stronger in no time if he keeps it up. I wonder what Rias’ cousin is like. He seems pretty strong himself. Akeno ended up fighting her Dad and was very cold towards him. It really makes me wonder what happened in her childhood. I like the way Asia is training. I can see her healing Issei from a long distance if or when he takes part in a life-or-death battle. I’m rooting for Gasper to gain the courage and face the crowd. Little things like that can be huge things for people like Gasper and I hope he manages to overcome his fears. =)

When Issei was lying in that bed I just knew someone was going to come in and sleep next to him. I didn’t think it would be Xenovia and Asia though, I thought it was going to be Akeno. How did Xenovia manage to get in that position whilst she was sleeping? I know we all toss and turn when we sleep, myself included, but not like that. And I certainly don’t put anyone in a submission hold either. Haha.

It’s really cool to see Raiser’s sister in attendance, Ravel. I was wondering how she was going to act towards Issei, seeing as he beat her brother back in season one, but it looks like they’re on amicable terms. Ravel gave him an ornament of some kind. To me, it looks like a flash drive but I’m sure it’s some sort of family heirloom. Now that she’s free of Raiser’s peerage and she’s available… I wonder if that means that she could join Rias’ peerage? Better yet, what if she volunteers to join Issei’s peerage, if he ever gets one?

It looks like Koneko has met face to face with her sister, Kuroka. I wonder if they’re actually going to fight in the next episode. It’s intriguing that she was one of the two spiritual cat sisters, the Nekomata, and was rescued by Rias’ brother. I wonder if we will learn more about Koneko and Kuroka in the next episode?

I’m looking forward to it.
