Rudra

I — Azazel am currently in the remote countryside of a certain country. At the end of the year, I was at a certain small stream holding something like a fishing rod. …Although I do enjoy fishing…even I don’t feel like fishing right now. The reason — is here. Sitting next to me and holding a fishing rod was a boy who had a slight smile on his face. His hair was green and black, roughly fourteen to fifteen years old, had normal features but was a handsome boy—.

“…You don’t like fishing?”

The boy asked me.

“…Not really, though in the past I did spend a few years on it.”

That was a lie. Fallen Angels have an eternal life, there was a period when I spent a lot of my time trying to practice and gain experience in fishing. Hearing my response, the boy made a bitter smile

“Eh, my enthusiasm has already faded. But, a long time ago I once did have enthusiasm…”

After that brief conversation, it was silent again. …I’d already kept this up for a few hours now. Seeing as so much time has been spent on this, there should be at least some results from fishing…. Unfortunately though, there are no fish in this stream. Even so, the boy still seemed interested in fishing here. The boy suddenly broke the silence and said

“Known as the most sinister of all Fallen Angels, you are also their leader, yet you actually try to spread peace around the world. This is such a joke. If Indra knew about this he would surely be laughing. …Or would he smile and say something?”

Then I asked the boy about my main concern

“There’s only one thing I wish to ask you. After it happens, can you please stop the beast?”

Hearing this, the boy looked surprised.

“666. Is that alright? Isn’t it a divine beast from your mythology?”

“The only one who can stop him now is you.”

After I said that, the boy smirked and replied

“Ophis is not here. Great Red naturally won’t accept. …the only one left then is me.”

The boy smiled wryly at me, then asked

“I heard that one of the young dragons on your side is able to communicate?”

“…Even if it was possible I don’t want to use it. As I don’t know what will happen.”

“A difficult request with unreasonable conditions. This isn’t really negotiating.”

…I understand. In my position, this boy…this god is not a person like me. I understood this but still came to ask him.

“If there is anything that you want, as long as it is within my power, whatever it is I’ll satisfy your request. If necessary, I’ll go and ask Odin and Zeus. Even my life doesn’t matter, I’d give it to you. I only need to stop the destruction of this world. Only this.”

Hearing my words, the boy laughed loudly.

“Ahahaha, hearing such contradiction [1] is too interesting!”

—But then the boy spoke in a direct manner

“—There’s no need. Whether it’s Odin or Zeus, or your life, I have no interest in it. If there was something I did want it would be — Ophis. Or rare cases like Sirzechs Lucifer, Ajuka Beelzebub as well. I want these people who can pose a threat to me, Fallen Angel-san.”

What this god said, I…didn’t know how to respond. After assessing my reaction, the boy showed a mischievous smile.

“I was joking. An incomplete Ophis or a devil who has no will to fight, does not make me interested.”

The boy said as he got up.

“—Then I’ll do it. Fight with this beast, if he wants to invade another world, I will stop it. —But everything else is just an interference. Whether it’s something that’s happening now, or something that will happen in the future, it has nothing to do with me. Even if it’s Rizevim Livan Lucifer or the Evil Dragons. I will only lend you a hand if worst comes to worst. …Are you satisfied with that?”

…That’s enough. That’s already more than enough. In the chance that the worst case scenario does comes true, there’ll be insurance — from this god. If he’s willing to lend even a bit of his strength, then no matter what kind of help it would be highly appreciated.

“…Yes, that makes me feel at ease. I sincerely thank you—”

“There is no need. This was my original mission. —To destroy everything.”

The one who interrupted me, was that boy — from the stream which shouldn’t even have a single fish, he reeled in a massive fish which radiated a divine splendor. …Could this god see something that even my eyes couldn’t see? However, this is not surprising. The atmosphere that this god exudes — makes me feel some kind of immeasurable power.

“I understand. I won’t have any more doubts about you. —God of Destruction Shiva.” This boy — the God of Destruction showed an eloquent smile.

Considering the worst case scenario, the representatives here were Shemhaza and I, Sirzechs, and Michael who would make an immense deal for this ‘insurance’.

“We will need a sufficiently strong ‘backing’. Though Odin and Zeus are already very powerful. Considering the worst possible situation — Trihexa revives, defeats Great Red, and all our forces are also slightly decreased.”

“So, Azazel…you want it?”

“…That’s right, Michael. If the worst case scenario becomes a reality, we need people who are able to stop it. The only one who can do it right now is—Sirzechs, you know right?”

“Are you talking about the God of Destruction Shiva?”

If nobody is able to control Great Red during the battle, and Ophis’s power has weakened a lot, then there is no one who can stop Rizevim’s plan to revive Trihexa and also the Evil Dragons. Although there may be hope if all the forces are united…but as a result, the God-class people of each mythology will have to make some sacrifices. If even one of the Gods with responsibility over the human world went missing, the consequences on the world would be hard to imagine. In that case, the power to defeat Qlippoth is still necessary. The destructive power of certain people. —If I had to list a person with whom I was very close to, then it would be — Shiva. Although there are still many uncertain points, by providing all the information and conditions that we had to offer, he finally agreed. The results of this can’t be ignored. The aftermath of this matter was entrusted to Shiva. This might at least be able to avoid the worst case scenario—.

Shiva used one finger to touch the large fish he had caught. After that, the struggling fish calmed down. Shiva said to me

“—Azazel, you’ve shown me your will to die. You’d best be careful. A man who preaches peace is always an unsightly existence. Yet you’ve come here to speak to me about ill omens. Your talents are quite impressive.”

…I’m well aware of the risks. Nevertheless, I want to do everything within my power. …Eh, not too long ago, this would’ve been dangerous, I still committed a taboo….

“If you really believe in that faith, even Fallen Angels are able to reincarnate right?”

I asked wryly, and Shiva simply shrugged.

For the wages of sin is death — The Bible <<Romans 6:23>> [2]

[1] The boy mentioned that Azazel who was the leader of the Fallen Angels is supposed to be evil and sinister thus he finds it amusing that Azazel is begging so desperately.
[2] Romans 6:23 – “For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” My interpretation: The punishment for those who sin is death, but with faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, the gift of eternal life is freely given.

— New Year’s Day.

Including me, Hyoudou Issei, all the members of the Occult Research Club celebrated the New Year, then after deciding on which places to go to, we set out early in the morning. And our destination was—.

“Ise! Long time no see!”

A girl with blonde hair and a tail — Kunou appeared in front of the Torii [1] of the shrine. That’s right, this New Year we came to visit Kyoto — Fushimi Inari Taisha [2]. Because it was the New Year, everyone was worried that it would be crowded, so we used a magic circle to teleport here in an instant. Um, the number of Torii here is still the same which feels quite scary [3]. In order not be disturbed by other people, Kunou and I had set up a barrier with the effect of keeping people away.

“Hey—, Kunou. I came here to pay my respects.”

“Uh-huh! Here’s the main god, the god Ukanomitama [4] will definitely be happy.”

After paying our respects, a friendly onee-san with the appearance of a fox appeared from inside the shrine! This lovely nine-tailed fox was the leader of youkai in Kyoto—.

“Everyone who has travelled so far to visit, welcome.”

It was Kunou’s mother Yasaka-san! Mmm—, indeed, she’s so beautiful! Her oppai are so large that I can’t help looking! It’s been a treat for my eyes since the New Year started. It just makes me want to bow down and pray. After Yasaka-san greeted us, Rias sincerely greeted her

“I had, always wanted the chance to greet you. But due to various reasons, I never had the chance, so I took the opportunity to greet you during this New Year’s visit.”[5]

Rias was currently wearing a long-sleeved kimono! Her long crimson hair was tied together, and she gave off an elegant atmosphere. Not only Rias, but Asia, Akeno-san, Koneko-chan, Irina, Rosseweisse-san, and Ravel were also wearing long-sleeved kimonos. By the way, Gya-suke was also dressed like them…. I, Kiba and Xenovia were dressed normally. The three of us had agreed.

“““Going to Fushimi Inari? It would be best to wear clothing which is easier to walk in.”””

This answer was very much like the style of a front-line soldier. After all, speaking of Fushimi Inari Taisha, it was almost like mountain hiking. Originally I was going to invite Azazel-sensei, Kuroka and Le Fay to come along as well, but sensei said that he had to meet with several important people and thus couldn’t come. Kuroka was sitting on a warm table in the Hyoudou household early in the morning of the New Year, eating rice cakes and mandarins to enjoy her leisurely life. Le Fay was accompanying (or said she was being held with) her.

Sensei later sent us some pictures, when he was drunk, where Azazel-sensei with a naked upper body was dancing with Zeus from Olympus, as well as an extremely hilarious scene of Michael-san, along with the God of the North Odin-oyaji[6] who was given a beating when he extended his hand towards Serafall Leviathan’s behind, and also dressed up as Satan Red was Sirzechs-sama who was being scolded by a drunk Grayfia-san. A luxury gathering on New Year’s Day, scenes which were not normally seen were sent one after the other to us. It was simply too incredible. These things were definitely not the respectful images of God-class people that were normally seen…. And Rias had her hand over her forehead, with a complicated expression for the New Year…. However, seeing Grayfia-san being amidst those people, I felt relieved. Although it looked like a drunken mess, it showed me that she had at least recovered a bit and was back to being somewhat more relaxed.

“…It seems it was like Azazel and the other Gods who invited her. He said that it was that time of year, so they needed to celebrate the New Year, which really helped out my sister-in-law.”

After saying that, Rias seemed relieved. She had been worried about Grayfia-san’s situation from the bottom of her heart. After all, although Grayfia-san’s younger brother was still alive, it had provoked a lot of unrest in the underworld.

[1] Torii: Traditional Japanese gate usually situated near the entrance to a shrine.
[2] Fushimi Inari Taisha: Head shrine of the god Inari, in Fushimi-ku, Kyoto.
[3] Fushimi Inari Taisha has many Torii lined up leading to the inner shrine. See Image.
[4] Ukanomitama is a kami associated with agriculture and sometimes with Inari, the kami of foxes.
[5] This is called Hatsumōde, where people visit shrines during the first few days of the New Year to make wishes for that year and other such things.

(Part 1 of 7)(23/5)

“Uh-huh, I will do my best to welcome you!”

Kunou looked very happy. She had also visited the Hyoudou household before…. That was when she was called to discuss the matters relating to the shrine and met Phis [7].

“Phis didn’t come?”

Kunou looked around at the people who were here. Phis [8] — that was Ophis. Because of their meeting, they had developed a good relationship. As we couldn’t explain Ophis’s body, I had introduced her as a young dragon girl named ‘Phis’. I scratched my cheek, then immediately started thinking of an excuse.

“Ah…. Ah that’s right, Phis said that she should stay home…she has a cold. So she’s resting. She really wanted to see Kunou though.”

After all, we couldn’t bring Ophis out. Right now she was probably with Kuroka and Le Fay playing games. Kunou seemed a little disheartened after hearing this, but she quickly regained her spirits.

“I heard that a dragon’s cold is quite troublesome. I’ll go and prepare a special Kyoto remedy, just wait a moment!”

With that said, Kunou quickly ran off towards the shrine. …She was probably going home to get the medicine right? She really thought of Ophis as her friend. That was a rather good thing. Seeing Kunou, Yasaka-san showed a pleased smile.

“Ufufu, Sekiryuutei-sama, you seem to have gotten closer to my Kunou, which is quite fortunate.”

“No, no, that’s not it. Back then, it was just a courtesy for us to take care of your child, as you helped us out during the crisis in the Underworld.”

After all, Yasaka-san helped us out when the Underworld was going through a crisis. She made an alluring smile — then leaned in next to my ear! …The fragrance which made its way into my nostrils was something out of this world…! H-How did t-this fragrance make my mind so excited that I was paralysed…I-Is this, what they call, the fragrant charm of a mature woman…!?

“Sekiryuutei-sama, for the time being, can you wait until Kunou grows into an adult? If you can’t wait, you could have me live with you…. Ufufufu. After all, Kunou once pestered me about having brothers and sisters. Not to mention that I haven’t had a young man’s bare skin for a while….”

Yasaka-san’s slender and delicate white fingers slid across my chin…! Her attractive gaze and provocative voice stimulated my male instinct—. It was only the beginning of the New Year and this onee-san had already captivated me! However, Kunou had returned quickly and interjected

Okaa-sama [9]! Your joke has gone too far! I got him first!”

Kunou tightly hugged onto my leg. Her extremely cute expression was meant to deter Yasaka-san.

[7] This is referring to events in the short story “Worship Dragon-God Girl”.
[8] Kunou has shortened Ophis’s name to “フィス”. Ophis’s full name is “オーフィス”. This takes out the ‘O’ sound leaving just ‘fisu’.
[9] Okaa-sama: Respectful way of addressing one’s mother.

(Part 2 of 7)(24/5)

“Hahaha. Truly an obsessive child. At this age you have some ‘feminine’ charm. Perhaps there’s some resemblance to being a woman.”

Seeing her daughter’s actions, Yasaka-san showed a calm smile.

“…Even in Kyoto I can’t stay relaxed.”

Next to me, Rias sighed. —Then, Yasaka-san clapped her hands together, and asked Rias

“Gossip aside, Sekiryuutei’s legal wife-sama, about the previous matter, do you have an answer?”

“Yes, there is no reason for me to refuse it.”

I asked Rias who was smiling as she replied

“…W-W-What happened?”

“Oh, Kunou will be starting middle school at Kuoh Academy in the coming year. The preparations have already been made.”

—!? The sudden news left me at a loss for words! It was too unbelievable! It was so unexpected, that something like would happen! Seeing me surprised and speechless, Kunou proudly raised her arm and said

“Ahem, it’s about time for me to go to learn about the human world. You could say that I want to go to a school which doesn’t have any problems for youkai! So after asking mother, then I just had to ask the legal wife Rias-sama!”

That is to say, Kunou will be coming to Kuoh Academy this spring. After all, the school had many people secretly studying there. From youkai to devils, there were all sorts of people. The most special people were probably the Occult Research Club and the Student Council’s members. Not only were there devils, there were also angels, youkai, Valkyrie, a werewolf and even a female grim reaper showed up…. …In true spirit of the New Year, it looks like there will be a lot of new things happening. …Which also means an approaching departure. Rias and Akeno-san, will be graduating in around two months…. New people arriving, also means their predecessors will be departing. Although this is the natural course of things, I don’t look forward to it and it’s only the first month of the year.

“Yes, O…phis will be very happy.”

I should tell Ophis when we get back. While her face will certainly remain emotionless, she’ll definitely be happy on the inside.

“Uh-huh! I look forward to seeing Phis again!”

After Kunou’s enthusiastic reply, I released the barrier and returned to normal space. We began climbing towards the top of Fushimi Inari Taisha again. After reaching halfway, we saw some familiar faces in Kyoto.

(Part 3 of 7)(24/5)

“Ara ara, Rias, you finally came here as well.”

It was Sona-kaichou and her household! Those girls were also wearing long-sleeved kimonos. …But only the Grim Reaper girl Bennia was wearing a jacket.

“You know, Sona. I heard you were coming to Kyoto, but I didn’t imagine that I’d meet you here.”

Rias had encountered a good friend early in the New Year, and those two stood there while talking.

“It looks like they got here about ten minutes before the Gremory household.”

Kunou said. I see, so they got here just a bit earlier than us.

“Yo, Ise.”

Saji greeted me.

“Yo, Saji. Happy New Year. You also came here to pray for the New Year?”

“Ah, it’s great fun. Fushimi Inari Taisha is our fourth stop, after that we plan on going to two other places before heading back. A part of the New Year means us devils coming out, which is well deserved.”

As he said, Kyoto is a sightseeing spot for devils during part of the New Year — especially the devils who are part of ‘DxD’ as many places open up to them. The Gods that each shrine is dedicated to expressed their consent. Because of this, even though it’s not the school excursion, we were still able to come here. Then again, the Sitri group also came to Kyoto during the New Year for some sightseeing. This isn’t too bad. We planned to quietly celebrate the New Year at the Hyoudou home after we got back from our trip.

“What, you’re going to wish to be elected Vice-President?”

Hearing me joke about him, Saji laughed. Suddenly glancing over, Xenovia and the Sitri group’s [Bishop] Momo Hanakai-san were staring. Between those two seemed to be a silent tension. This was inevitable. After all, they were competing for the position of Student Council President, in other words, rivals.

“I won’t lose to you, Xenovia-san”

“Ah, Momo. I also, will definitely win.”

The two were shaking hands. Hmm, a declaration of rivalry is fine. It felt like they were full of competitive spirit. But speaking of that, Xenovia, when did she start calling Hanakai-san by her first name…? It seems like the Gremory and Sitri girls frequently spoke to each other, when the boys didn’t even know about it. Hearing the conversation of the two girls, Saji shrugged.

“So on my side, besides me; the others are here to pray for the election. Well, if the Gods here really do show compassion to devils, then we need to thank them. See you, I need to head back down now.”

(Part 4 of 7)(25/5)

After that, the Sitri group began walking down the hill. There were people besides Saji and Hanakai-san who also wanted to be elected in the Student Council. But they didn’t have much chance, so the election would definitely be able to determine…. In other words, the closest competition in the Student Council election, would be between Xenovia and Hanakai-san for the position of President. Next, we should also continue heading up towards the top of the shrine. —Just as I was about to start walking, someone hugged onto my arm. It was Irina. It looked like she was in a very good mood, so much so that she was even humming a tune.

“Hum, Kyoto at this time of year is really nice. Darling ♪”

…D-Darling. …That’s right, since the beginning of winter, Irina’s attitude towards me has completely changed, sometimes she would call me ‘Darling ♪’ and she became even more clingy than before! She suddenly started learning how to cook, she planned to take baths with me, and if there was any opportunity, she would sneak into my bed at night! A-Although it made me happy, it made me feel even more troubled. Everything else aside, just ‘Darling’ alone was enough to make my entire body go numb!

“…S-Say, Irina.”

“What is it ~, Darling?”

Irina’s voice was sweet. …Her voice made me hesitate on how I should respond.

“Why…why have you recently started calling me ‘Darling’?”

I worked up the courage to ask. I wanted to confirm it.

“Annoying. You’re certainly Ise-kun. Hee hee ♪”

Hee hee ♪—was what she said! I roughly understand…that I’ve become ‘Darling’?

“Just calling me Ise normally is fine. Otherwise, it feels like my brain will melt…”

Because my mind really will melt so I hope that she can stop. ‘Darling’ is just too nauseating. It already no longer has the same meaning as before…. I carefully but clearly told her. Whereas Irina looked like — she had been struck down, her expression could immediately be seen.

“H-How can you…How could Ise-kun say that…! And when I kissed you was it just for fun!?”

Why would she bring that up! Why would you say that here!? Everyone around here were just ordinary people headed to the shrine!?

“Hey, hey. You don’t need to say that so loudly!”

I nervously tried to calm Irina down, next to me Xenovia sighed while saying

“Irina, just a kiss has turned you into a lover, you’re too impatient. After all, Rias-zenbuchou [10] and Asia have already kissed Ise, and they did it more passionately compared to Irina.”

Xenovia said tiredly in response to her friend.

[10] –zenbuchou: – former buchou

(Part 5 of 7)(25/5)

Uh, ah, Irina and I kissed on Christmas…. It was after that that Irina’s attitude changed. What can I say, it seemed like she was always staring at me with an affectionate gaze. But Irina didn’t continue her frustration, and instead made a stance to pray.

“I don’t care! The forbidden love between Ise-kun and I will continue! Even if there’s an obstacle between us, there’ll be no problems as long as we have love!”

U-Uh, even her eyes were sparkling…! It was just the beginning of the year and things were already in full swing.

“That reminds me, I haven’t prayed yet.”

“Ah, I as well.”

“““Ah, dear Lord.”””

Xenovia and Irina as well as Asia, those three began praying!

“What a devoted prayer! I also need to try!”

“Hahaha, everyone is rather interesting. Also…”

Even Kunou and Yasaka-san started copying the Church trio! …Why did this happen at Fushimi Inari Taisha during the New Year…? I simply couldn’t understand. These trivial things continued as we went on, and I finally reached the shrine at the summit, where I then put my hands together to make a wish. My wish is…for everyone to be healthy! That was first! Then I want to be able to make my harem in peace! That was very, very important! The third is ecchi! I hope that this year I’ll be able to encounter many ecchi pleasures! If a few of my wishes could be granted then that would be the best! Next to me, the sound of talking and praying wafted into my ears.

“…When you wish, you need to give your own address and first name clearly to the God, wouldn’t that be better? Do you understand, Gya-kun?”

“Eh?! I-I didn’t know Koneko-chan! N-Need to do it again!”

After being asked by Koneko-chan, Gya-suke hurriedly started wishing for the second time.

“Oh well, Gya-suke. The shrines have several different factions, this one is Inari [11] focused, so it’s best to make a related wish. But, I will probably come here during my school trip in autumn, so I can make another wish then.”

“Ah, I’m really looking forward to the school trip! Although Kyoto in winter is nice, I also want to have a good tour of Kyoto during autumn!”

Ravel exclaimed, with both her eyes sparkling. That’s right. Koneko-chan, Gasper and Ravel will be second year students starting this spring, and they have a school trip during autumn. How scary, they’ll be going to Kyoto just like Rias and I did. …Although they probably won’t be attacked like I was….

[11] Inari: Inari Okami is the Japanese kami of foxes, of fertility, rice, tea and Sake, of agriculture and industry, of general prosperity and worldly success… (From Wikipedia.)

(Part 6 of 7)(25/5)

“I made a wish, I hope that Fafnir-san can recover quickly.”

Asia said. Fafnir fought with the determination to die for the sake of protecting Asia against Rizevim, after exhausting all his power, he entered a state of temporary hibernation. …He showed a dragon’s ‘Outrage’ — when he put all his effort into protecting the people important to him, that sight has already been engraved into my mind. Recover quickly, Gold Dragon King. Even you, are an important partner to me. My eyes suddenly focused to the side, where Xenovia was praying.

“What did you wish for?”

Xenovia kept her eyes closed, and replied

“…This year, I will definitely have Ise’s children.”

“H-Hey! Wishing to have a baby will not come true! Anyway, what is your wish…?”

Seeing my expression, Xenovia laughed.

“Hahaha, I was half-joking. —Ah, I was hoping to have a smooth election. Even though I’m not sure if this God will grant the wishes of a devil.”

Well at this time, it’s only natural for her to wish for this.

“Still, you do want to win with your own strength right?”

Hearing my words, Xenovia smiled confidently.

“Of course. Victory or defeat, it’s only meaningful if you put in your best effort.”

Her face showed an expression of determination. Incredible! Such an admirable expression. Xenovia was planning to go all out for the Student Council elections from the start of the New Year. This was the usual Xenovia who feared nothing! After praying, Xenovia turned to me — and suddenly grabbed my face with both her hands!

“Well, give me good luck.”

Then, her face leaned closer to mine — and our lips overlapped with each other Aaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhh!? It was such an unexpected development, which made me too surprised, and I subconsciously stepped back! B-B-B-B-Be-Because! S-Suddenly it became like this! So suddenly — she just kissed me! Everyone else was also startled and astonished by it!

“—! W-W-W-W-W-W-W-W-Wh-Wh-Wh-What did you do!”

I completely panicked! I was certain that my face was completely red! Xenovia slid her finger over her lips, and laughed with amusement.

“Haha, it looks like you have many weaknesses, Ise. For my wish to be elected president to come true, I’ll accept that kiss.”

…Using a kiss to make a wish! What is this! Really! The New Year had just begun and this had happened…! Did the wish I just made take effect this quickly!? I should first thank the God here, right?! No, I hope that I’ll have an even more passionate and romantic kiss! Ah, although the surprise was very much like Xenovia’s style!

“Irina, how does it feel? I should also try calling Ise ‘Darling’.”

Xenovia made a ‘V’-sign [12] at Irina.

“Uwaahhh!”

Irina’s eyes were full of tears and she frowned all of a sudden! From behind her, Rias’s sigh could be heard followed by Akeno-san’s voice.

“…Now, it looks like it won’t be as easy as last year.”
“Ara, let’s hope you can take the lead from the other girls, I’m looking forward to it, you know?”

Just like this, with a New Year — the third trimester was about to begin!

[12] V-sign: ‘peace’ sign using two fingers. Read more on Wikipedia.

    I’m happy TripleZerox finally decided on when he’s going to continue translating – and even happier that it’s so close. That said, though, I’m certainly quite pissed off at the anime guys.

    I mean, seriously, what have they done?! I just remembered: The one who uses the replica Boosted Gear and dons a replica Boosted Gear Scale Mail isn’t Rias in the LN, it’s Euclid. And IIRC, Ise doesn’t go to the Dimensional Gap and encounter Great Red there with Rias, it actually only happens after he gets hit with Samael’s curse and loses his body.

    The part with Ajuuka Beelzebub giving him those “possibilities” was also greatly changed up and shortened. Where’s the trip to Kyoto? Where are the scenes where he goes into the depths of the Boosted Gear to talk to the past Sekiryuuteis? Also, he awakens the Trianna all at the same time, during the trip to Kyoto for the New Year visit and the “possibilities” given to him by Ajuuka go around molesting people all around Kyoto before coming back to him and giving him a power-up (two words: Breast/Chest Power). Then the past Sekiryuuteis summon Rias with an “Oppai” Magic Circle and Ise awakens the Trianna by touching her boobs (or was it by touching her nipples? I forget).

    In the anime, they have him awaken the Welsh Blaster Bishop form of Trianna first, and it’s before any of the other stuff even happened. What the hell, guys?

      I wish they would have used the same format as Mahouka, where the anime follows the LNs verbatim.

    I’m glad I’m not the only one who’s wondering what in the underworld is going on with the anime. This Loki stuff is particularly stupid. I thought the JD stuff was very good, and could even live with Asia kissing Ise where she did, instead of after the 3 legged race – but they should hav10 be the introduction of the Gremory/Bael rating game, and Koneko’s abilty to heal Ise’s life force. Then next episode could have shown the girls finally healing Ise (would have been great in fact, given how this anime likes to show oppai whenever possible), and the cliffhanger could have been any number of points in the match. Finally we have Ise and Sai(whatever) final battle, and his big confession to Rias. Finish the last episode out the way the book did and it would have made for a fine wrap up to the series.

    But no – we have to have Loki nonsense. Maybe it plays better in Japan…

        I completely agree with you, my friend.

        And the guy Ise fights in the Rating Game is Sairoarg (did I spell that right?). He first tells the whole Underworld during the Rating Game that he loves Rias, and then he confesses to her again, alone, in the Club Room in the Old School Building and kiss (or do they almost kiss but then get interrupted?) and it turns out that everyone had been watching. All of the girls ask him out on dates, even the guys (much to Ise’s horror and chagrin).

      They’re just adding and/or taking stuff out as they please.

      That’s just how anime makers go, I’ve heard. They aren’t exactly obligated to be faithfully to the original story, and are actually allowed to do whatever they please with it. Series whose adaptations follow them closely are lucky.

        still I can’t resist myself from downloading the current episode ! hehehe

    Didn’t Episode 10 of the anime seem like filler, mostly? I don’t remember the part with Loki placing curses like that on Rias and Ise in the LN. And the kiss scene between Ise and Asia doesn’t happen at that moment – I’m pretty sure it’s supposed to happen some time after the Three-Legged Race. And Rias herself allows and encourages Asia to do it, doesn’t she? Ise sprains his ankle, or something along those lines, and when Asia is about to go and heal him, Rias tells her it’s fine and to “go for it,” most likely talking about making an advance at Ise. So Asia kisses him after she’s done healing his leg (she stands on tip-toe when Ise’s standing after the healing is done and kisses him). The confession also happens then. The anime did it way too soon.

    Anyway, I’m kind of worried about what the fake Ise is doing, and how Rias is right now. And what could be the doubt inside Rias? Maybe it has something to do with her being worried that her position as number 1 in Ise’s heart could be weakening? Either way, I’m looking forward to seeing how his whole mess gets sorted out.

            He’ll probably still want to get his own Peerage and Evil Pieces, though, even after the realization, which I don’t really like since I’d prefer it if he decided that he doesn’t need to do that anymore now that he’s already achieved his goal, but I won’t hold my breath.

      I agree; although, I’m pretty they’ve made some changes. Like, did the LN have Vali notice something other than Dragonic Aura in Ise’s power signature at that time? And did Ophis, in the LN, take out Raynare’s taint, then, as well? Plus, I’m not sure I remember reading about him thinking about Rias, Raynare and Asia in that particular way while he was in Juggernaut Drive, either. I may have to reread it, though, since I’m not totally sure.

        Also, in the LN, Great Red’s nickname as the abbreviation for “Dragon of Dragon” was “DxD”. In the anime, they put it has “DD”. Which I find weird.

        But I guess the anime was right about “True Red Dragon” and “True Red Dragon God Emperor”? I also remember something in the LN about “True Dragon” also being used to refer to Great Red, though. I’m confused here (the LN is the most correct and canon source, yes. I’m just not sure if the anime is adding to it on its own or if it’s using the same terms for Great Red’s nicknames as in the LN).

        Was it Raynare’s taint that was removed? I don’t remember it specifically saying that so I was thinking that it had something to do with Loki in the preview. And in regards to “DxD” vs “DD”, I think the pronunciation of “DxD” is simply “DD” in Japanese as they tend to omit the ‘x’.

        • DragonOsman2 says:

          0

          0

          In the LN, Raynare’s “curse” isn’t supposed to be removed until that scene where Ise’s taking a bath and Asia, Akeno and Koneko come in and talk to him about why he doesn’t understand Rias’ feelings. They’d figured out that it must have been because of the trauma from what happened with Raynare. So they then “heal” him (Koneko uses Senjutsu, and Akeno and Asia hug and comfort him). That’s what breaks the “curse”. It seemed like the anime did something that seemed like the “curse”/taint, or perhaps a part of it, was already removed by Ophis when Ise was in Juggernaut Drive, but that’s not how it was in LN.

            Yeah, they did that part differently from the LN, too. In the LN, he turns back to normal after watching and hearing the Oppai Dragon song video. Ophis doesn’t come to help at all, IIRC. I’m not sure if Vali helps, though.

    Life 0 Part 3 of 7
    Legal wife ?? They are openly speaking in front of Ise about Rias being Ise’s legal wife and not even Ise reacts to it? Was there a wedding between Volume 18 and 19? I thought that they just started their official relationship, even though they were engaged before, without Ise realizing it.

    • n3ri says:

      0

      No, I think that Ise and Rias aren’t reacting to this anymore, because Rias was called his legal wife before. I think Ise hasn’t realized even now that he’s engaged with Rias, and I’m not sure if the other girls know about it.

      • DragonOsman2 says:

        0

        Yeah, it’s quite sad, but true, that Ise still hasn’t realized that he’s engaged to Rias. I think they should tell him about it.

        Most likely, out of the girls, the only ones who don’t know are Rossweisse, Irina and Xenovia (Yasaka and Kunou probably know already, if their calling Rias Ise’s legal wife is any evidence), since they weren’t there when it happened. The others should already know.

        @TripleZerox: Thanks for the update! Now you can take your time with the exams and other things in real life before starting on Life.1. Good luck.

        I do have to point out, though, that you’ve once again put Akeno’s name there without the “-san” honorific, even though this is all in Ise’s point of view and he calls her “Akeno-san”.

      • anifreik says:

        Rias had stopped reacting to being called the “legal wife” back when she, Kiba, and Azazel were in route to see the vampires. That I can recall, this is the first time it’s been said in Issei’s hearing. I too, was expecting SOME reaction from him, even if just a mental “WTF?”.

        • DragonOsman2 says:

          Same here, actually – I, too, was expecting at least SOME sort of reaction from Ise upon hearing that.

          Was that really first time he’d heard of it, though? Even though it was only in teasing, Akeno did refer to Rias as the legal wife on several occasions, although it was also before the engagement, and Rias’ mother also said something to the effect.

          But yeah, he still should’ve had some sort of reaction to hearing it. I don’t like how he still doesn’t know that he’s already engaged to her, either.

    And Irina calling Ise “Darling” is both cute and romantic at the same time. I liked it.

    I just feel that the “and the kiss was just for fun!” part is off; I mean, is that really what she says? Shouldn’t it be something more like “And now you’ll say that the kiss was just for fun!”? It would flow along better with what she was saying, no?

      There would’ve been an ‘H’ there, in that case, wouldn’t there? Japanese normally do pronounce some ‘S’ sounds as though there were an ‘H’ there, but that’s a default pronunciation behavior and likely has nothing to do with Kunou being a child. To make the ‘H’ pronunciation be the desired one, the author would probably include an ‘H’ sound, but in this case, Ishibumi seems to not have done that. So yeah, Kunou calls Ophis “Phis”, and that’s all there is to it.

        I think in japanese she will say “phisu” , but it weird when we read it in novel. “phis” is enough for me in novel.

      Why can’t Ise just add them both to his harem? Yakasa can’t join Ise’s Peerage since she has to take care of Kyoto as the Head Youkai, meaning she can’t become a full member of the harem, but how about an honorary member, at least? I mean, she’s clearly Ise’s type, no? It’d be a pity to not find some way to include her.

      Looking at the explanation of how to read the characters, which I’m pretty sure are Katakana (フィス, read “fisu” in Japanese), I’m pretty sure “Phis” would be read as is. Phis. All Kunou does is take the ‘O’ part out.

      This is the explanation in the footnotes: “[8] Kunou has shortened Ophis’s name to “フィス”. Ophis’s full name is “オーフィス”. This takes out the ‘O’ sound leaving just ‘fisu’.”

      From my understanding of the kana chart on this site: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kana, Ophis’ name is written mostly in Katakana.

      The ー character is used in Katakana to “repeat the previous sound,” which in this is the ‘O’ sound in オ. I read that just now, at a site where someone had asked what the ー character means. A member who is good at Japanese answered the question. And it also has a Hiragana equivalent, where the previous Hiragana sound is repeated without the writer have to do too much work.

      • DragonOsman2 says:

        To clarify further, ‘O’ is normally not a very prominent sound in Japanese, so to make it work as intended in the name Ophis, Ishibumi had to use that character for repeating the previous sound, so it actually becomes ‘O’ to make “Ophis”. It’s the same as ‘U’, which also isn’t prominent in Japanese. It mostly comes off as silent unless you add an extra ‘U’ character, or just use a character for repeating the previous sound, I guess (I’m just taking a guess here based on what I learned of the ‘O’ sound).

    > As I could not understand Ophis’s body, I had introduced her as a young dragon girl

    I believe it should go like As we couldn’t explain Ophis’ body (…)

    And for those wondering, the part

    Kunou looked very happy. She had also visited the Hyoudou household before…. That was when she was called to discuss the matters relating to the shrine and met Phis.

    came from the short story Worship Dragon-God Girl. The picture of Ophis and Kunou in Kuoh Academy uniform is from that short story.

      Well they put volume 5, 6 and 7 into 12 episodes. Whoever read LN will be dissapointed but you could say this was for best. If they make season 4 they will be more loyal to LN since they won’t need to end season 4 on cliffhanger with Issei death.

        You could say it was for the best, but I won’t. It’s a crash and burn, and I have my doubts if there will ever be a season 4. If there is, the death of Issei is the perfect cliffhanger, assuming season 5 was already greenlit and advertised without a 1.5-2 year wait.

        Season 4 would be LN 9 and LN 10 so it wouldn’t be a cliff hanger on Isse’s Death. Even if they had only done LN 4 and LN 6 in Season 3, Season 4 would have been LN 7 and 9 (and maybe the SS at the end of LN 8). Season 5 would have been where the cliff hanger would be. Now it will be Season 3 will be 9 and 10, and then if (and I stress IF here) there is a Season 5 it would be 11 (where isse dies) and 12.

    Hey X, I know you watch the anime as well. Are you finally somewhat happy they have started going at a slower pace and connecting it more with the LN?

    Thanks for this latest update, TripleZerox!

    Just one thing, though: “After all, although Grayfia-san’s younger brother was still alive, and it had provoked a lot of unrest in the underworld.” Don’t you think the grammar here is a bit off? The although suggests some alternate clause that would be coming after the comma after alive, as in “Although I don’t like it, I’ll still have to do it,” or “There are three apples on the plate; although, we are only going to be eating one, after dividing it amongst all of us” (used as a conjunction, to join two complete sentences). The “After all” also seems misplaced there.

    Anyway, I’m also glad that Grayfia is doing alright now, but man, those God-class people are goofing off way too much. Normally it would’ve been fine, but didn’t Azazel say he’d be going to a business meeting or something? Is goofing off like that his idea of a business meeting? But yeah, if they’d finished their business and then started partying, I guess it’s okay.

      Without reading back through it to make sure, I think Azazel said that he “had to meet some people.” Which he did. Sounds to me like it’s just his way of saying “You kids go have fun on your New Years shrine visits, I’m gonna go party with the grown ups!”

    @zxzxzx, this is just my advice, but can u speed up ur tranlation pace? I mean, lately I see u delayed ur post, even more on this Life.0, that makes ur translation pace slower than ur previous goal. In my calculation, with this pace, u might done all of vol. 19 on the 1st half of June, while u said in ur FAQ that u’ll also done the DX part, which is quite challenging to make it translated by the end of June or may be on the 1st week of July. The reason why I ask you to speed up is: The released date of DxD vol. 20 is around 2nd to 3rd week of July. if u read DxD Vol.19, (from Animesuki reader) u’ll want to read DxD vol.20 ASAP because of the cockteaser given in Vol.19.

    I’m not asking u to TL this volume in one go or something like that, but please pace-up a little because u still have to do DX before the released of Vol.20

    The last, please don’t take this advice negatively. I’m really apreciate ur great contribution on DxD translation projects.

      Unfortunately, V20 may be out before I finish V19. I have said that I will be taking a break soon due to upcoming exams. As I get closer to them, my workload will be increasing and I’ll have less time for translation. I delayed and may delay future updates when I have more important things to do. My FAQ states that I will do DX if I finish V19 and cannot do V20 yet, this is looking unlikely.

    those who thinking its a plothole showing Shiva is stronger than Ophis or Great Red,or Azazel mentioned only Shiva can stop 666 is its released i can say to them its not plothole..in Hindu mythology Shiva is the God of destruction as all know..he has a quite and peaceful nature..but once he is enraged very few persons can stop him,and ofc not by force.he by far stronger..he is the very symbol of destruction..so its only him who can stop trihexa and probably still live after defeating it..while Great Red/Ophis at full power might be dead or be like how Ddriag once went to sleep after exhausting too much power..that i really cant imagine how to bring them back..though as Shiva is shown i really hoped the God of Protection Vishnu would make an appear too..he one of very fews who can somehow stop Shiva’s dance of destruction..but probably that wont happen :p

    • Awesome says:

      If Great Red used his full power whole worlds will collapse and nobody will be able to stop him. That is why Great Red must not fight Trihexa. If Shiva fights Trihexa it will be to buy time so it can be sealed. There is no chance that Shiva is powerfull enough to kill Trihexa after all even if he is serious. God from Bible couldn’t kill him also.

        if there is no reason he wouldnt be called God of destruction…and no one can stop Great Red if he get angered and get going to fight trihexa..hope u read where Great Red lend power to Issei just for the reason that shadow monster showed him hostility..and i dont think Great Red would be able to kill Trihexa without using enrage..and if used enrage a dragon wont stop untill his all power is used..and Trihexa should be on per with Great Red, not like Great Red can kill it in one go..so there is the problems..if Great Red collapse then balence would be broken..i dont think Great Red would intentionally destroy universe..that is why Shiva better..cos there is some way to stop him..and Shiva himself said he has the biggest threat from Great Red and full powered Ophis..so probably Shiva is at the rank no.1

      He shouldn’t need to combine with Great Red anymore, as long as he can learn to access and control the power Great Red gave him. His current body is made from Great Red’s flesh, after all, so he’s pretty much Great Red’s kid now, and should be able to use that power at will if he learn to access it on his own.

        in vol.12, Issei did attain a humanoid body from Great Red, with the help of Ddraig & Ophis’ power.

        But in my opinion, attaining a humanoid body from Great Red flesh is not the same with attaining Great Red’s power.

        Ophis too, even though Ophis did give some of her power to Issei (his humanoid body), doesn’t mean Issei get additional Power-Up like Old-Maoh faction. In the end, I think the only thing Issei got from Great Red is a dragon body which is much better, in this case, to withstand Ddraig dormant power which is still uncovered. one of the possible reason why Ishibumi make Issei [half] dead and got a “new” body maybe related to this

        • Anonymous says:

          He did obtain their powers, as he still has to have Akeno and Rias drain his dragon aura and Koneko’s senjutsu treatment. Not because of a lack of lifeforce, but due to the fact that Ophis and Great Red’s powers are opposing forces. They are causing his lifeforce to rapidly go between infinite (ophis) and zero (illusion/dream/great red). The treatments are normalizing his life force, and also might have the powers play nicely in the future.

          He currently can’t touch their powers, because he isn’t strong enough. He already hypothesized that he might be able to touch their powers if he could learn how to control the power he already has (volume 17, sun wu kong training)

          • DragonOsman2 says:

            0

            0

            Exactly right. I wonder how far he actually managed to get with the First Gen. Sun Wukong’s training, though? It sucks that we weren’t shown it, and so far there has been nothing about what results it may have had, either.

            I’d say the main reason why he’s currently unable to access Great Red’s and Ophis’ powers at will, is probably because his own power isn’t high enough to endure it. To put what you said into a bit more definite detail, Anonymous.

            I was going to say that his body isn’t strong enough, but then I thought against it because his current body is made from Great Red’s flesh which theoretically should be able to handle those powers. If not both of their powers, then it should at least be able to handle Great Red’s power, considering the fact that it’s a body that was made using Great Red’s own flesh.

            I wonder if Ise can learn Senjutsu. Is it possible for him? If so, I think he should learn it.

            But wait, does Great Power really signify “zero,” though? He’s the Dragon of Dragons, the True Dragon, isn’t he? I was under the impression that the reason Ise’s power fluctuates between zero and infinite is more due to the fact that his life-force is also in danger of fading at times, still, from all the crazy stuff he’s already been through. If I recall correctly, that’s what they said when the fact that his power fluctuates like that was mentioned (which was after he’d received Great Red’s and Ophis’ powers).

            Considering that Great Red’s power is supposed to also be high enough for him to be rated in the upper tier of the Top 10 strongest fighters in the world, I find it hard to believe that his power would make Ise’s life-force go down to zero. Unless the whole “Illusion” and “Dream” thing really means “zero”.

            i guess u cant say its “zero”..but dream is an illusion..and great red controls over it..so even if he has inifite powers like Ophis still his power will show like an illusion and cant be mesurable..because sicence/numbers cant count illusions..so thats why probably Issei’s life force when fluctuates between infinite to illusion in chat it shows like infinite to zero ..i guess its probably like that

          • DragonOsman2 says:

            0

            0

            It’s probably both, then, because I think I do remember it mentioning somewhere that Ise’s way of life right now and the fact that he does things that hurt his life-force (like taking in one of the jewels from the Divine Dividing, or having his own left arm Dragonify to use an incomplete Balance Breaker – both of those things severely shortened his life-span, and that’s not even all he did that has hurt his life-force, either), and that it’s also because of that that his life-force is in danger of fading at times. I may have to go and read it again, though.

          • Hartless04 says:

            The best way to look at it is would be as a battery Ophis being the + side and Great Red being the – side but they are the same whole, which is why Ise doesn’t explode from to much power on the infinite side and he doesn’t die on the dream or – side from lack there of power. Which means if you really want to get into it Ise is really no better off then he was before he got his new body.

          • DragonOsman says:

            0

            0

            No, it’s more that because Ise currently isn’t able to handle those powers, he isn’t able to access them, either. Once he’s trained more and is able to access and handle Geat Red’s and Ophis’ powers, we’ll really be able to tell the difference in his power as a dragon then. It should also make his power stabilize such that it lets his life-force stay at infinite if he wants it to, rather than fluctuating like it does right now between zero and infinite.

But, like he said, even he is now going to have to take more time, since he has other priorities like his studies. And although he was having to take longer Code-Zero had exactly same situation.

          Code Zero and I will be doing Volume 20 together. If Volume 19 is finished before 20 is released, I’ll probably do some short stories (DX.1 & DX.2). If the Chinese release of Volume 20 is not available for some time, I’ll probably do the short stories.

        It can still happen, though. Shiva is the God of Destruction, so it’d make sense for him to be a villain, although he only acts like a God of Destruction when he’s enraged and is otherwise very gentle (which makes him not be very good villain material – but, oh, well).

            As for Hades, though, it’d probably be bad if he became a real villain, as they really shouldn’t kill him. He’s the God of the Underworld, so with him gone, the Underworld might be thrown into chaos. Really bad.

            If Hades becomes a villain, he could use the above to his advantage and wreak havoc knowing that Team DxD will be trying their best to not kill him. Sneaky and evil, but still a good idea.

      Man, just how powerful is Trihexa really? If even the God of Destruction can only delay it until someone can seal it again? I think we need the combined power of all of the stronger people in this series to destroy that thing. Hopefully, the Two Heavenly Dragons will also be included in that.

      Yeah, I don’t think just sealing it again is enough, as someone else could just show up later and break its seal again, which nobody would want. Solution: Just destroy it.

      I think Shiva could defeat 666 at the cost of most of his strength or him going into serious mode. Using his abilities under a controlled state of mind, he can stop Trihexa from doing anything long enough for Rossweisse to seal it.

        Maybe the current Ophis is strong enough to match Shiva. And the current Ophis who still have a power the combined two heavenly dragons. Shiva said he can stop Trihexa not defeat it, that’s mean maybe Shiva will put Trihexa in a place then sealed it for time being so maybe someone can sealed Trihexa for good.

        Remember Ophis still number 1 ranking in DxD with Shiva placed in second. It’s been mentioned before between number 1 and number 2 still have a large gap of power between them.

          Could Ophis and Shiva together defeat Trihexa? Or would they need further help, like maybe from Great Red and/or the Two Heavenly Dragons? I’m thinking all of them should team up, actually.

          I would say you mean Shiva at #3 cause there is no way in hell that Shiva could beat Great Red who is at #2.

          If they are just going to seal Trihexa again they should just seal it in a Sacred Gear then it can’t be let out again ever.

            Who would be the person to get that Sacred Gear, though? Because whoever it is, it’ll have to be someone with a strong bearing, confidence and mind. It can’t be someone with a weak constitution. Trihexa is an evil monster, and is also extremely powerful, after all. Someone with a weak constitution wouldn’t be able to control it, and would probably get taken over by it constantly. Remember what used to happen to Saji after Azazel had combined all of the other Vritra-type Sacred Gears into Saji’s one? He seems to have gotten it under control now, but mostly, Ise would apparently still have to help keep Vritra in check. With a Trihexa Sacred Gear, it’d probably be worse.

            For all we know Trihexa could just be like Ophis just misunderstood, but that could just be wishful thinking.

            The Sacred Gear system seals things like parts of power of the being that it seals so it could just seal the power of Trihexa to a point it can be used.

    Nicely done on the translation as always, i didn’t expect this one this week as i think you mentioned you was taking a week off before starting it, but still thanks for the hard work.

    Also once again good luck with your exams coming up ok 😉

      I thought so, too. But it seems like he’ll be taking his time with Life.0. I just hope it’s done eventually, so no sweat.

      Anyway, TripleZerox-san, good work on the translations! Thanks a lot!

      Just, one thing: I hate to continue being picky, but you also keep using all lowercase with some of the important proper nouns that should be capitalized, like Fallen Angel in this chapter. I’m sorry, but could you please fix this? Sorry again, and thank you.

    There is a big plot hole here it was said that the difrence in power betwen Ophis and the secon strongest was so large they couldnt even compare and here they say that shiva can fight trihexa who is equal to great red who is=Ophis.

    • DragonOsman2 says:

      Ophis’ power was greatly reduced, though, remember? Its* power is no longer Infinite like it was originally, as most of it was stolen by the Khaos Brigade and given to Lilith (Cao Cao and the others did that, and then Qlippoth took in Lilith). That’s why Shiva, in this chapter, referred to Ophis as “incomplete;” it’s because he knows what happened to Ophis.

      I’m confused by one thing on here, though: Why would Azazel say, “If nobody is able to control Great Red during the battle”? Why use the term control here? I’m really confused.

      *I say “its” because Ophis doesn’t really have a real gender – Azazel said that it can take any form it wants, even changing genders, and that the last time he met it, it was in the form of an old man. So yeah, don’t let its current form fool you, it’s better to just refer to it with the pronoun “it”.

        Lilith was created by Qlippoth through the power Cao Cao and co. stole, they never had the chance to form the new Ophis.

        Control as in, use his power. Since earlier it was mentioned that the Sekiryuutei (Ise) can communicate with Great Red.

        And for everyone saying that it’s a plothole… Shiva’s just cocky with a super-broken destruction ability. The gap between the 1st and 2nd spots is huge…as far as people know; how many people do you honestly think have witnessed the powers of a serious Shiva first-hand?

          Ah, thanks for the reminder about Qlippoth and Cao Cao, in relation to Ophis and Lilith. I guess I’d forgotten the exact details; my bad.

          And yeah, as for Shiva, I agree with you. I really doubt he’s ever gone all out, so not very many people would have known of his true power, anyway. In short, there’s no real plot hole here.

      I can’t say it’s a plot hole until the end of the series but this situation is similar to sirzechs and ajuka remember what vali said? He thought that sirzechs isn’t even at the top ten strongest yet he was proven wrong when he showed his true power. The same can be said to shiva the gap was thought to be huge but isn’t proven yet because he probably never went all out yet

        I agree here. This truly seems to be the case here. But yeah, a confirmation given in canon and/or in Ishibumi’s own words would be much appreciated.

        Speaking of Sirzechs’ true power, however, I wonder how Ise will react if and when he finds out that this future brother-in-law of his has been hiding such an unbelievable power from him all this time?

        Yea but nither did Ophis she never needed to use her power seriously since she was no 1 from the start.

          Could you be replying to the wrong post?

          And by the way, I’ve said this before, but: Ophis has no real gender. Please refer to it as though it does.

          Remember: Azazel mentioned before that it really has no gender and it can take on any form and gender it wants to. In fact, according to Azazel, the last time he met it, it was actually in the form of an old man.

          So yeah, don’t fooled by its appearance. Ophis isn’t a little girl at all, even though it does look like that right now.

            “Please refer to it as though it does” should be “Please don’t refer to it as though it does”. My bad on that.

          Well even if there’s a large gap there’s still a reason why arazel said that shiva is the only person that can STOP trihexa.. Power doesn’t mean everything in this series. If that’s the case then orphis wouldn’t even get its power stolen. Shiva probably has a haxed technique type power that can counter trihexa. Stop may not mean defeat but only delay it for the rest to seal it. I have a feeling that doing this may take a team effort from the top tiers in the series (sirzechs ajuka Odin Zeus team dxd etc)

          Remember that power doesn’t mean everything in this series. Their gap difference is still huge no matter what. But shiva may pull out a haxed technique type of an attack that can counter against trihexa. He might not even be able to defeat it but only stop it by delaying it before it gets to great red. Then the rest of the top tier will try to seal it again.

      Dismissed, Ishibumi has one last arc after this up his sleeve.

      Ishibumi have 1 more arc after this with how many knows volumes but it’s not for sure. There are alot of things more like High class promotion, rating games etc. It’s not for sure tho.
