High School DxD New episode 06
I must say that I’m a bit disappointed by this season. I honestly expected a lot more from this. This season has been nothing more than a predictable charade of fan service scenes and comedy. High School DxD is so much more than that, or at least it used to be…
So they bring in these new characters, I’m fine with that. I’m also fine with them being stronger than Issei. I’m also fine with the idea of there being another dragon wielder out there that’s currently much stronger than Issei. Is it really necessary to make Issei seem weaker than usual though? Is that absolutely vital?
Issei seemed weak ever since the episode started. I mean, the guy can’t even properly teleport yet. What has he been doing? Character after character shows up now, all which are so much stronger than Issei. That guy has been reduced to a mere tool of power-up. Basically; he is so weak now that they use his transfer ability to make other, stronger characters even stronger.
There are only two good things about this episode. The first would have to be Akeno’s feelings towards Issei; they have awakened. She, too, has fallen for his… charms? That guy is charming? Really? Anyway, it promises to be quite the mess when Akena shows up at Issei’s to claim his hand in marriage as well.
Now, the second part would have to be Vali’s arrival. I knew that he was the other dragon’s partner. That dragon, known as Vanishing Dragon or Albion, looks like a genuine powerhouse. Issei’s dragon, Ddraig, allows him to transfer his powers to others, but Vali’s dragon allows him to transfer other people’s power to him, making him stronger than he already is. I guess without saying that I would rather have Albion by my side if you put it like that.
