High School DxD New episode 10
What’s this? Could it be? Could this finally be another episode of High School DxD New that I’m actually happy with? Holy… People, call your local newspapers and spread the news! To hell with Syria and their poison gas. This is a lot more newsworthy.
So we finally meet up with Michael, leader of the angels. I must shamefully admit that I started to get nervous when I finally had to chance to examine that character a little bit. Before I actually say this, keep in mind that High School DxD New revolves around sex. I thought, when I laid eyes on that character, that I was about to see some kind of wicked Yaoi-rape scene where dominatrix Akeno tried to present Issei as a present for Michael. I’m sorry, but that characters look so unbelievably gay. It’s the kind of character that other guy characters are based on, it’s just that gay. The fact that I think he’s actually pretty cool makes things even worse.
Oh well, the guy gave Issei a shiny new toy to play with, that’s all that really matters. It’s a lot better than a poorly explained power boost that came out of nowhere. Now this I accept. Issei got himself a sword, a dragon slaying sword to boot, that he absorbed into his Sacred Gear. Even I must say that it’s a remarkable improvement. I never really liked that dragon claw-thing he had going there.
Anyway, all faction leaders sat at the same table to discuss the possibilities of peace. This is where Azazel stood apart from the others with his rotten attitude. It’s quite clear that he doesn’t really care for peace. Or does he? I find that character ever so hard to read. Either way, quite a few enemies showed up again at the end so we can expect to see a lot of action next week.
