Well, looks like Issei Hyoudou will have to finish up the booth for the upcoming school festival, just to steer away from what happened in the previous episode.
But you know what, the reason why Issei act like a fool towards Rias Gremory is because he still have those wounds from Raynare. C’mon, remember that scumbag fallen angel who dupe him, killed Asia Argento and took her Sacred Gear just to get noticed at Azazel.
While Raynare is defeated eventually, the scars still lingers to his heart. But you know what, time for our Oppai Dragon some healing!
Well, a special kind of healing as Akeno Himejima takes his clothes because she’s gonna suck his *ahem* excessive dragon powers. I mean, he needs to take care himself, especially after using the Juggernaut Drive!
Also, Koneko Toujou will join too as she has senjutsu because Akeno sucking Issei’s dragon essence isn’t enough!
Oh, and let’s throw Asia Argento into the mix too as her Twilight Healing will heal his body, but not his heart.
But you know what, Issei Hyoudou will need to trust more on not only his harem, but also Rias Gremory. I mean, Asia and the rest loved Issei because he knows how to treat a lady!
And let’s not forget about Xenovia Quarta and Irina Shidou because even though they don’t have healing powers, Xenovia and Irina still want to join in!
Well, looks like Issei Hyoudou will be happy that he’s surrounded by naked girls (Where’s Ravel?) but deep down, it’s not even perfect without Rias Gremory. Heck, we didn’t see her barging in as usual.
Anyways, let’s move onto Agreas where the Rating Game will be held between Sairaorg Bael’s team and the Occult Research Club.
Even though this is just a friendly match according to the spectators, Azazel explains that the floating city is a battlefield of politics between the Sirzechs Lucifer and the Great King Zekram Bael. It’s very complicated actually!
Also, I would like to introduce you to this character that might be a pain in the ass later. This is Hades, the Greek God of the Underworld where he’ll be a spectator for the time being.
Come to think of it, Hades reminds me of that main character from Overlord. Maybe I should watch that show in the future…
Meanwhile, we have this character played by the prolific voice actor Takehito Koyasu. Ugh, that bastard is back!
Yup, this is Riser Phenex and you probably known him as an ex-fiancé to Rias Gremory before he got a punch to the gut by Issei Hyoudou at the end of Season 1. Oh, and let’s not forget about that Highschool DxD BorN OVA where despite doing training, Riser still got his ass kicked!
But now, Riser Phenex have changed but he’s still a smug to me. Anyways, he told Rias Gremory to have faith in her peerage. Also, Riser told Issei that Sirzechs is calling him but you know what, he wants a rematch once Issei Hyoudou becomes a professional. Don’t worry Riser, I’m sure Issei will gladly take you on again!
And here’s Sirzechs Lucifer as he wants to show to Issei something special from his fans…
Yup, it’s those kids who supported Issei Hyoudou as the Oppai Dragon. C’mon, they really want him to win this Rating Game!
Anyways, it’s time for main event where Sairaorg Bael and his peerage will take on the Occult Research Club at Agreas. Of course, there’s a twist of the rules as both Sairaorg and Rias will have to throw the dice to determine which player shall they send onto the battlefield based on the values of their Evil Pieces.
For example, pawns are worth 1 point, knights and bishops are worth 3 points, rooks are 5 points, and queens are worth 9 points. So, if both kings get a 9 on their dices, they’ll send either a bishop and 2 knights, a rook and 4 pawns, or any combination as long as it fits the maximum points allowed. Of course, the rule of eliminating the king still applies though.
Oh yeah and while most kings are valued at 8 to 10 points, Sairaorg Bael is worth 12 points compared to Rias Gremory’s rating of 8. Yeah, I must say that Sairaorg is more valuable despite using his martial arts skills and his tough body.
Anyways, both kings rolled their dices as they’ll have 3 points to allocate on their first match. So, it’s either a bishop or a knight battle on the next episode! I can’t wait!
