High School DxD thread Ophis edition.
Any news about the new characters in the 5. bd/dvd special?
Anyone can translate this? This text is about Ophis, that I found on the Ishibumi blog. I tried google translate and other shits, but...
from what i can work out its just general information about ophis, nothing new .
i think some one posted something from miyama´s tweeter that hinted at ophis being the secret character , but nothing is certain .
He's saying that the original plan for Ophis was to have her use the last bit of her power to revive Issei in volume 12 before disappearing. However he thought that was too sad of a fate for Ophis so he changed things around and now she's the mascot character.
I see, thank you.
She's too cute to die.
Well we know the character showing up in the next volume will be voiced and is an important character as well. This time they won't just be a background character like Sairaorg was in s1. More info when we get closer to the release of the volume.
we might actually be getting another ophis in the future her stole powers taking shape as a twin ophis
just imagine the two ophis...es trying to do a gattai / the fusion dance to power up and fight great red.
would have been great to get muscle devil talking in the anime.
but anon that already happened
not getting into it until its all done with.
Some of the elevens seem to think it'll be Ophis for sure. Kuroka would also be another character that could fit, and she's definitely important in s3 material.
Ophis is best DxD.
... so super cute best daughteru dragon , or deliciously curvy lewd neko ?
i am more than ok with either of those...also because both as you mentioned it would tease and get nips excited for a possible S3.
I honestly can't tell who will be on that special, as both of them would make sense.
I'm secretly rooting for Ophis.
silly anon you know that all DxDs is best DxD.
except for Asiaand reinare
she would get a lot more interest in the anime, considering the volume when she gets more focus sold like hot cakes.
she is like a tiny Akeno in that when they put Akeno extras on the stores for DxD stuff, it just gets nips to throw money at it like crazy.
Either of them being animated and voiced would be a huge tease for s3.
I like Asia.
Yeah, TNK should be aware of this.
I wonder who would voice her.
I'm in heaven?
Holy shit, that's very hot...
I want an Ophis.
its going to be fun to read all the shenanigans issei and the twins will get into, and all the misunderstandings with people actually thinking they are his daughters .
>Holy shit, that's very hot...
Its Akeno , being hot is what she does best.
is enough to get my dick hard.
>it just gets nips to throw money at it like crazy.
I remember that
>BDs sellin "ok" in most stores
>One store offers lewd Akeno poster
>NUMBER ONE! SOLD OUT!
Well we do know some of what's going to be in the next BD volume.
So, Ophis and Great Red are more or less equal in power. How come Ophis (before she got her powers halved) doesn't try to take on Great Red so she can go back to The Gap?
>Ophis will never be your daughterumotherufatheru
>you will never take her to buy underwear
>she will never take a bath with you
>she will never jump out of your closet at awkward moments and say "its me ! Ophis!"
What volume is that? 15?
Fuck, time to start reading the novels...
Delicious bikini tanlines on a delicious Akeno.
I think Ophis just wanted a little extra support to take on Great Red, and that's why Ophis was so willing to give people the snakes as long as they said they would help.
Fuck my life.
She really is a girl I want as mai daughteru. I'm not one to typical not make love to even daughteru characters, but Ophis is one rare exception I can find myself to sex.
i was about to call you out and call you a shit , glad it was all just a misunderstanding.
Ophis is pure daughteru/motheru/fatheru material, only meant for hugs and piggyback rides to the mall.
oh for the bros who have not checked it out, the manga updated... one chapter, but hey its something.
Man, I completely forgot about the manga, thanks, anon.
Why is Sona such a qt?
got this out of it.
I'm waiting for that Koneko illustration that comes with the next volume. It just leaves you to wonder who will have the last one. Maybe it'll be Irina?
Issei continues to live the dream.
I fuckin want the Miyama Zero artbook. I hope she'll do some very cute Ophis pages...
we had Rias, Akeno, Asia, Xenovia and now Koneko, right?
so yeah it might be Irina... though i would not mind if we get another Grayfia one, or a Sona one.
Just a month left until it's out.
I'm really hoping that Irina gets it.
Just one month left anon, hang in there.
>It just leaves you to wonder who will have the last one
Kuroka to hype S3
It'll obviously be Gasper.
She's way too good for this shitty series.
god ...kunou, why are you so fucking fluffy.
Not fluffy enough, sorry.
Sage for derail attempt.
Need that third season for dere Koneko.
>more akeno train
> more sona
>Juggernaut drive aka"ALL ABOARD THE RAPE TRAIN"
>OPPAI DRAGON THEME SONG
I'm not sure how I forgot about Gasper, but you're most likely right.
how could you forget about Gya-suke?
I was only thinking of the girls, but that still doesn't help my case for forgetting.
So much stuff that I'd like to see animated. Maybe the final volume will have an announcement.
S3 would probably mean Ophis goods would come out, so I'm all for that.
I want an Ophis figure. I hope they'll make a cute one.
If she could get a good figure it would be great, but DxD doesn't have a good record with those.
I think everyone should already know what DxD figure I want.
I'll pre-order her even if it's a shit figure. Too bad it'll never happen. ;_;
its been getting much better.
the Kunou figure is ok, and the last Rias one was pretty damn nice.
we dont talk about bikini akeno and purple swimsuit rias.
have faith bro.
>bikini akeno and purple swimsuit rias
It's always the face that gets screwed over. I haven't been able to buy any Akeno or Rias figure because of this.
A Ravel figure would be nice, but maybe we she would at least get an illustration with one of the BD volumes.
I really doubt an BD illustration of her since she didn't appear at all in s2.
Maybe in s3 if the Chichigami wills it.
I shouldn't be surprised that he's going to be really important to this current arc, but I am.
Which DxD would you give the D?
I pick Reynare, after I pound her out a bit
Come at me
Just picking one is difficult, but I would go Koneko. Reynare does have a really nice body.
MY D CANT HANDLE THIS MUCH
Why is it that we dont get that many doujins from highschool?
We can't have nice things.
Uuuuugggg I cant wait for season 3.
For sure im going to use something really well while its airing
Return of the greatest antagonist we've had and will ever have when?
Concerning the anime, which fights are the best or your favorite, /a/? Give me your top 3.
The chess match vs phoenix
We don't have much to choose from in the anime so far, but probably Issei/Vali, Issei/Riser, and I actually liked seeing Issei and Kiba beaten by Xenovia and Irina.
Exactly as >>100618116 said.
S3 should be more action-packed, so great fights await.
I have a guilty as fuck conscience to the point of not being able to work out, or watch anime because I know my doujin backlog is getting bigger.
I've got Euphoria pending now, the Asia doujin after, my current newest batch and the two Koneko doujins coming in the following weeks.
Fuck it, I'm going to give you Euphoria before I go to bed today. To hell with sleep.
But after that project I'm going to change up the order a bit, there's one doujin from the most recent batch that caught my attention.
In it Rias tries to dominate Issei and gets subbed. Then Issei goes on to screw every other girl until their eyes roll to the back of their heads. Pregnancies and Rias turning yandere are abound, it ends with with Rias about to cut off Issei's dick while he sleeps.
Sounds like wild one.
Now fuck you and get to work on that.
So much wasted potential
The fact that the surprise character is voiced, depending on who it is, makes me hopeful for a s3.
Raiser vs Issei, round 2. There is no other fight in the series like it because Issei actually demonstrates in-depth tactical thinking of the sort I would normally expect from guys like Negi Springfield. That fight was really what sold me on reading through all the novels; it's just a pity there was never another scene as good as it.
Please god don't be trolling.
I'll get Euphoria done. Then after that I'll give priority to this one
It would be nice to see more variety in the fights aside from Issei just standing toe to toe with his enemy and trying to punch them into oblivion. I thought it worked well and made sense with the Sairaorg fight, but the others could've used something more.
Don't expect it for at least a week though.
Don't have much of an opportunity to scan lately.
That's good enough for me. Thanks for the update.
its good to hear that at least you are working on them , you are a true hero...also that you are not banned.
did you scan this one as well?
if you did thanks for it as well.
Nope, not me. That guy beat me to the punch.
I go by the nickname zarion.
oh thats good to know so i can keep an eye out.
Any release date for vol 17?
One month from today.
>That "Akeno best girl"on the desk.
Truly a masterpiece,made and translated by gentlemen.
>Oppai is love, oppai is life
Anyway >>100622745 LoN, are you going to scan the artbook the next month?
Shit, the artbook.
Completely forgot about it. Throw me a link and I'll see what I can do.
So, I haven't been keeping up with the series since I'm an anime-only fag, but is this her normal attire? Like Akeno's normal was the shrine maiden?
Yeah, that's the normal attire.
Yes, that's her normal attire.
anyways, yes thats how Ophis looks most of the time... though after moving in with issei they do go out to get her more normal looking outfits so she can blend in better.
Well, there's quite a bit of anons that pre-ordered it, I'm sure someone will scan it.
Besides, you still have shit to do and we'll probably end up getting it at mid year with your pace.
Very well, but throw me a link either way.
I can't find it.
LoN pls, it's just a few clicks in google and done.
Was using amazon.
Either way, Euphoria is almost done now.
You're amazing, LoN.
That's that. I'm off to bed now.
Thanks a bunch.
thank you , may the chichigami fill your dreams with plenty oppai of your favored size.
I'm glad the cast is moving on to a new school semester.
Thanks LoN, you're still a faggot.
>yfw the final bd volume has a s3 announcement
I want to believe.
Doubt it, but I still want to believe.
Maybe they'll announce an OVA.
Stranger things have happened.
If it's Ophis in the extra footage, I don't want to think they would animate and voice her and not do a s3. That would be crueler than Oda Nobuna.
S2 when? ;_;
You think the fight scenes might be better if Issei had specced as a sorcerer instead of a fist fighter?
It would've added a little extra flavour since he could learn to control the trajectory of his magic and try to be tricky with it like that. This newest arc has him learning more about magic so I'm hoping he'll incorporate a little more variety into his offense. His Welsh Blaster Bishop gives him some impressive magical firepower, but it has the drawback of needing to charge up before each shot.
Would speakable and unspeakable, etc.
the thing is, up to now there was no real need for him to add variety.
even Sona mentioned that with strength like his and the rest of the gremory team the best strategy most of the time was just punch it as hard as you can and keep punching it, but that was with henchman level wizards and shitty devils .
we did see a bit of his battle smarts with Cao Cao though even it didnt reach the levels of prep time of the Rizer fight, he still managed to pull a pretty unconventional move and gain the upper hand in what would have been a one sided battle.
with the series kicking into over drive in terms of power levels and stakes , yeah he probably will have to learn a few tricks but with the adition of Le Fay , and mother fucking Sun Wukong being his new teacher im sure he will manage.
True, most of the time he doesn't have much prep time at all since trouble just finds him. This new arc will give him a chance to get some prep in because this seems like the first time in a while where his opponents seem to be genuinely evil and out to create so much chaos. It'll be interesting to see just how much stronger he gets with Sun Wukong training him.
Well it's just nine days until we find out who that character will be. Maybe sooner if Ishibumi just comes and states outright who it is.
>Maybe sooner if Ishibumi just comes and states outright who it is.
i doubt he would , there has been a good amount of build up so it would be kinda shitty to ruin the surprise.
>even Sona mentioned that with strength like his and the rest of the gremory team the best strategy most of the time was just punch it as hard as you can and keep punching it, but that was with henchman level wizards and shitty devils.
And fallen angel leadership, and Vali, and Sairaorg, and everyone in the Old Maou faction, and Loki and Fenrir, and so on.
The real problem isn't the lack of quality opponents, the problem is that Ishibumi can't write a competent villain to save his life. If Loki for example had acted like the trickster god he's supposed to be instead of like a stock shonen villain I sincerely doubt he could have been dealt with using standard tactics.
Besides, if Issei is a sorcerer he's most likely using his perverse imagination to come up with all his most powerful spells. Can you say doujin material?
The villains could definitely use quite a bit of work. I'm hoping that Rizevim and his group turn out to be competent this time around since he's someone that even Sirzechs had to worry about.
Is anyone actually getting this. I mean it's the better looking one out there.
I enjoy DxD in some ways, but the shounen-like powerlevel development is not that good. Anyone else feels this way?
Yeah, the power levels are kind of bullshit and the series would be better off with some more tactics and characters needing to use their heads to win fights.
Like, that idea a few posts ago about Issei powering his magic with perversion? Well it fails horribly when he faces male opponents, which is a lot of them. But he can get around this by changing his fighting style -- when a male opponent shows up, Rias and the peerage take over and Issei buffs the hell out of them with Gift and whatever boosting magic he can invent. That would be a huge change from the ordinary shonen material.
it doesn't even need to be tactics. The series has some really interesting abilities hax even, and they should be used in more creative ways while cutting down the use of training and trigger of powerups when the time is right.
